The motel rooms were spartan and bathroom and shower tiny. The room was very clean however. The shower worked, the beds were acceptable, and the wi-fi worked. No complaints. It did have a working dehumidifier which also was a A/C unit and worked.

Stayed for 1 night while passing through the area. Cabin had more than enough room for 2 adults, it's older, but everything is clean & in good condition. Bathroom was a bit small but was fine. TV and wifi both worked fine.

We are staying at the Isleview and totally enjoying having a place so accessible to the sights in the Bar Harbor area. It is a short distance to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park> The cabins are the simple older seaside cabins with the knotty pine and decorated with nautical themes. There is a very nice gas grill available if... More

We so appreciate folks that read what they are booking in advance, as you said, no surprises. We are happy to hear the web site is pleasing and easy to use. The staff has worked long and hard this summer and is pretty weary with the long hours so they truly appreciate seeing the good reviews from customers, thank you! More

My husband and I stayed here on a romantic getaway last week. To be honest, we chose it primarily for its cheapness and good reviews, and we weren't disappointed. It was, in fact, very cheap (we got a budget room for $64) and when we arrived, they upgraded us to a cottage for free (without us asking) since 3 of... More

I had a great time at this cottage. It was clean, perfectly sized, has all modern amenities, and is a convenient drive to Bar Harbor/Acadia. The cottage is near the main road, but isn't noisy at all..

I love the Isleview Motel and Cottages. I always stay there when I visit Acadia National Park. I love being away from the crowds of Bar Harbor. The drive to the park is less than 20 minutes. There are great food options along Route 3: Mainely Meat (though I prefer the original spot on Knox Rd, just 6 minutes from... More

This place is the worst I have ever stayed. The room is located very close to the highway (fewer than 20 meters away). You can hear almost every car that passes by. The room is so small that it only fits a bed, a tea table and two chairs. The bathroom is also ridiculously tiny. The toilet already blocks half... More

This was a disgruntled customer, and instead of addressing all of his complaints in a lengthy response, I would ask future guests to read all of our reviews, not only here but other sites as well. We have a 4 star rating for a reason. More

Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park continue to increase in popularity, which makes finding affordable lodging a challenge, particularly 'in season'. These cottages are directly on Rte. 3, easy access to Bar Harbor and the park. The facilities are dated, but they were clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly. Pricing was very reasonable compared to most of the other comparable... More

Thank you for your review! We are a budget property and hope that guests review and rate us accordingly within that category. We certainly can't compete with the fancy water view places in Bar Harbor.
