We stayed at the Anchorage Motel for 3 nights. The staff were very accomodating, the room was clean and neat, but basic and in the style of the 1960's--but we knew that when we made our reservation. It is pet friendly. The room could have used some modernizing, so if you want a room with a new look, you need... More

Forget that it's not most luxurious. This motel was clean and close to everything. The bathrooms look newer. All we did was sleep here. We were out everyday, all day. Very comfortable for the price. A good place to lay your head after our adventures on the island.

Our September 2016 trip to Maine was not planned far in advance, so we expected to be it dificult to find places to stay at a reasonable price. The Anchorage Motel turned out to be one of the best finds...It is in easy walk to all of Bar Harbor's main St. area & a short drive to Acadia Nat. Park.... More

We spent one night at the Anchorage Motel during our recent trip to Bar Harbor. The rooms were simple but spotlessly clean. Both staff members I spoke to were very friendly and helpful. The price may seem high for the amenities offered but the location is great and it was perfect for our trip.

I've been to Bar Harbor many times throughout the past few years and I ALWAYS stay at the Anchorage Motel. Jesse, Evan, and newcomer, Amanda, are great people and always have a smile to greet you. The motel is family owned, very clean, Herminia makes sure of that, AND has off-street parking, JUST PARK AND ENJOY!!!! The BIG PLUS is... More

Perfect location, very clean! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Affordable and very clean especially considering it's dog friendly! Easy walk to town for shopping and dining. Quick ride to Acadia National Park. Very friendly staff with coffee offered in the morning.

We chose this hotel for its great location and reasonable prices. Both of those things hold true - the location is absolutely great and within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor and all the shops. Parking is also very easy with a lot right out front. The price for the location is great too. The front desk and housekeeping staff... More

The only good thing about this place is its location: easy walking or biking distance to everything in the village of Bar Harbor. But the room was pretty subpar, especially considering the price: scratched up old furniture, smell, threadbare blankets with rips (!), spots on the walls and ceiling. Could deal with all that, not too picky, but the beds... More

The Anchorage is located right in downtown Bar Harbor. The location is terrific for walking in town. It has a nice lawn with chairs for outdoor sitting in the summer. It is a standard motel, clean, and serves coffee in the office in the mornings. The rooms are basic with wifi and AC.
