It starts with their staff. Reservations were as made. Room was large with nice appointments. Nothing new but well maintained. Four soft pillows. Great location for the docks, the village or ACADIA NATIONAL PARK. Breakfast was the best continental type you could ask for. A fabulous value. Great for family or couples or handicapped. Convenient parking for all cottages. Actually... More

We stayed four nights here while visiting Acadia. Very good choice. Its nothing fancy, you can tell it is an older motel. But the room was very clean, all the furniture, fittings, and such were fine and in good working order. The staff, particularly the front desk staff, were very pleasant and very helpful. Breakfast is included and it was... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel with our 20 month old son. The room was SO CLEAN and comfortable! When we arrived, we checked in and went to our room. As we were unpacking, the front desk called to ask how well we liked the room and see if there was anything else we needed... More

My wife and I stayed here for our 20th anniversary. The STAFF was very nice, informative. We hiked the trails off the back of the property, enjoyed great breakfast each morning and overall our stay was simply enjoyable. Great management, Great staff and very homey feel.

Stayed here with my brother and sister for a night on a visit to Acadia. We stayed in the family room - excellent choice. Room was spacious, quiet and clean. It was nice having 3 beds in the room, and we never felt cramped. Staff is friendly, helpful,and wonderful. Can't wait to return on another trip.

I might not have come here but for the many positive reviews I saw on TripAdvisor. I am so glad I did, as this is a really good place to stay without spending a fortune. Our room was spacious and clean, with plenty of furniture (table, two comfy chairs, desk, mini fridge), and the beds were comfortable. I've stayed in... More

We booked a fairly last minute trip to Bar Harbor, and wanted a place that would allow us to have two rooms at a reasonable price so that we could stay awake while our one year old napped. The options were fairly limited by the time we booked, but the Bar Harbor Motel had something, and the reviews seemed decent,... More

In a town full of high priced B &B's, the Bar Harbor Motel is a good mid range price choice. Room was comfortable, bathroom recently updated and spacious. There is a heated swimming pool, small playground for kids, a breakfast room with included buffet breakfast. Terrible coffee, but fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal, all types of bagels, breads, and... More

We are three adults - a married couple traveling with a grown son. We were pleased with the location which is in walking distance to town ( about 25 minutes) and close to Acadia National Park. The property was very large and well kept. There is even an entrance to the carriage road on the property. The room itself was... More

We truly appreciate you sharing your experience here on Trip Advisor. Every year we spend a certain amount updating our facilities - new carpeting, furniture, beds, etc. We are undergoing a bed replacement phase (starting last year) and will have many of those beds replaced for next season. More

Really nice motel. Perfect base for trips around. Acadia national park under 5 mins by car maximum (I think you can even walk there directly from property via connector trail, did not try). Bar Harbor under 5 mins also (and no problem with free parking after holidays at all). We had really nice and super spacious room. Mattresses were much... More
