When we arrived Morgan checked us in nicely and upgraded us to a larger room! (Wow, how convenient!). they were so lovely and friendly! But, even then, the motel has a handy text line that seems to always be manned. It was super reassuring to be able to ask questions at any time. I also really liked that they had coffee and tea available at the front desk. I didn't remember to get the name of the staff member in the evenings, but they were also wonderful and exceedingly helpful. The hotel location is perfect for walking to nearby shops and restaurants. I was really impressed by the breakfast and selection. I wasn't really expecting anything at all - so the bar was low, but it was absolutely lovely. A quaint little room with COVID friendly foods (prepackaged) with both decaf and reg coffee along with a tea selection. Parking was packed, but we always snagged a spot (as the lot is big); they can always just have you park next to the pool if spots run out. Wifi was excellent... And no strange lag or anything whenever we uploaded our bajillion photos. (The scenery in Acadia and Bar Harbor is too tough to resist spending time behind the lens, between the time you spend gazing with wonder). Acadia: It was about 15mins to the Cadillac Road entrance. Roughly 15 to the visitors center. And maybe 5 mins to park road. Acadia is an experience by itself, so I'll leave that separate. We did not use the pool, but we did also use the microwave in the breakfast room (thanks!). The front desk just let us in easily so we could scarf down some leftovers and some warm goodies for lunch. Yay thrifty! And convenient. The ice maker was clean and had a handy ice scoop. The room had two doubles (we were originally planned to be on a twin and a double). And the beds were comfy. We had 3 pillows per bed, so that was perfect to divide between us. The room had a window unit AC to set the temp conveniently. The mini fridge was a good size. The bathroom was bigger than I expected with solid counter space - towels aplenty. I totally missed the nook above the toilet with additional towels. So I requested more unnecessarily - oops. As a detail: their COVID protocols had these handy door hangers to request additional things, like towels, and toiletries. Very easy and a great idea. Again, I thought we had only 2 towels so I actually went to he front desk to request more the first morning... And they were SO speedy to get us some. Maybe 5 mins. Thanks again friends! (I found the other 2 in the nook, so we ended up with 8 towels. Very sufficient). The shower was clean and they had bed bath and body works products for shampoo and conditioner and soap. Unfortunately their supply of lotion was out, but we had our own anyway so no complaints there. Standard tub and shower, but good floor space and plenty of tub edge space to put your own products. (We had 3 gals in a room so I anticipated a bit of a cluster - it was a breeze)…
Centrally located this motel adhered every way to State mandates for Covid-19 opening. Rally friendly staff! Breakfast became a bag of prewrapped treats we had selected the night before Chobani, yogurt, fresh fruit, breakfast bars--very clever way to avoid group breakfast bar. Staff was smiling, courteous and attentive. Traveling with my two millennial children who are picky, I was so pleased I'd chosen the Villager. Beds were really comfortable and the bathroom was modern and super clean. We plan to go back in the Fall. We live in Maine. We wish Villager were a chain!
Great hotel in a great location. Parked our car and left it there as hotel is right in the heart of bar harbor (need to drive to Acadia). All staff were friendly, room was comfortable and spotless. If anything was needed- it was brought to us (towels, pillows etc). I guess the little square pillows need to go though. Bed was comfortable and bath and body works shampoo and soaps were provided. Grab and go breakfast provided with lots to choose from. I would definitely stay here again and hope to have the opportunity.
Great location. Great service. All of the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was good. We always took some fruit and cereal bars to get ready for our hikes in the local national park. We definitely will be back.
This was our 2d stay at this motel. It is perfectly located near buses, restaurants and walks without the noise and bustle of the crowds. Someone has done serious upgrades to the decor so the rooms are more comfortable and pleasant (although we spent little time in the room). As our previous visit, tall the staff at the front desk was so helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast was fine as a grab and go with the woman in charge keeping food and recycled utensils replenished, we appreciated the expanded outdoor seating.
