Rooms had one keyed lock, no working deadbolt, and very easy to jimmy open. Bedding, towels, furniture, all very tired. Front desk was not very helpful or friendly, only answering when repeatedly asked. About 3 blocks walk into town which was good. Please stay somewhere else when in Bar Harbor.

The top feature of the Anchorage Motel is its location, 3 blocks from the center of Bar Harbor. The rooms are not elegant or luxurious, but they offer what you need -- comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, free wi-fi, air conditioning, morning coffee, and a bar fridge. There is ample parking, which is almost a marvel so close to downtown. We walked everywhere -- to the shore path, to two very good breakfast places five minutes away, to restaurants for dinner. The price was reasonable and we are very happy we chose to stay here.

Great location. We walked downtown so easily for our adventures. The room itself was clean, but very outdated. The bathroom door barely shut and they had some ceiling tiles in the bathroom that need to be replaced. It had a tv and refrigerator. Pillows were rock hard. It was fine for one night, but can’t imagine staying there for longer. I was shocked how expensive it was for what we had, but better than spending $400 for a room for one night.

The cheapest place i could find in Bar Harbor with two beds. Nothing fancy, but it did the job. We were actually pleasantly surprised considering it doesn't get the greatest reviews and the pictures do it no favors. Comfy bed, decent bathroom. Would stay again.

Nothing fancy, but very helpful staff, clean rooms and easy walking to downtown. No Frigerator or Microwave which didn't bother us. A huge parking lot which was nice. They offered coffee in the office in the mornings.
