This was our third stay at the Bar Harbor Motel. The kids love the pool and went for a swim every day. The storage shed for bikes is a great plus. Free breakfast every morning. The kids love the chocolate chocolate chip muffins. They also have oatmeal, cereal, boiled eggs, yogurt, bagels, and english muffins. It's a great perk, but... More

Thank you for returning and for taking the time to give us a review here on Trip Advisor. After years of nagging the national park has agreed to smooth out that 2/10ths of a mile trail that starts our access to the carriage roads. Hopefully, the work will be done by the time of your next visit. More

I have zero complaints about this place. There's a reason almost every review looks like this one. These people really make an effort to give the best possible impression, and they do a great job talking care of their guests. Strong wifi, clean refreshing pool, good breakfast, great room, and they're on the shuttle route to downtown Bar Harbor. I... More

Stayed here for two nights with another couple. Disappointed in size of room. Two bedroom is very small. No microwave which was surprising. Thought it was very pricey for what was offered. It is NOT the closet motel/hotel to entrance to Arcadia National Park. Do some comparison shopping. Breakfast was muffins, bagels and so so coffee.

Actually, in none of our advertising do we proclaim we are the closest lodging to the main entrance to the national park. What we do claim (because it is true) is that our property abuts the national park and we have direct walking or biking access to the park's carriage roads. Your opinions are your own and how you view... More

It's when there is a problem that the true character of a business is displayed. Passed with flying colors! During our recent stay we had some slight difficulties with the electronics in the door lock, the staff was quick and efficient in addressing the issue and insisted on giving us a complementary night (though we did not think it was...

Stayed here for three nights. Motel double room was perfect and comfortable for family of five. Convenient location, in between Bar Harbor and Acadia park entrance, each a mile from the motel. For walking or hiking into the park it's a great location with a direct access path. Everything clean, including the pool, and breakfast choices decent and plentiful. Overall,... More

My family and I spent 2 nights at Bar Harbor Motel -- we loved it. Clean rooms, great price, great access to the park. Although we stayed busy with activities in the park itself, the motel had several activities planned throughout the day like frisbee golf, movie night, scavenger hunt, etc for the family and kids. Their breakfast was very... More

This is our 3rd time staying here, but it's our first time coming with family. We rented a few rooms in the very back of the property that consisted of 2 rooms sharing one bath. The only complaint was the fact that the back room has no separate AC unit and if you close the door to that back room,... More

Wonderful motel!! Very clean, very kind and very courteous. All staff did an extremely good job. Breakfast was very nice, also nice to have fresh fruit all day!! Our only ossue was the mosquitoes at the pool in the evening. We would definitely recommend and stay there again! !

We loved this motel! We would definitely stay again. It had everything we needed for a great stay. The layout with all the small buildings makes this a quiet environment. We stayed in a 'family room' which had a king bed in the front room, a bathroom in the middle, a back room with two double beds. The entire place... More
