I have stayed in this Motel with a group of 14 motorcycles several times in the past 3 years and it has been very clean and well maintained. the manager Jack has always done what ever he has to do to make our stay memorable. this year I had a caterer come to the motel and prepare a Lobster Bake...

We stayed at this hotel with another couple, so we booked the 2 bedroom family, thinking there would be enough room. The first room you walked into was not big enough for all 4 of us to sit in, so in order to be together, we had to sit outside. The weather was chilly, so this was inconvenient. There was... More

Don’t let the name fool you. This place is more like a nice Hotel than a roadside Motel. Our “2 Queen Room” with 2 queen-size beds was perfect for our family of 4. It was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and plenty spacious. It had a sliding glass door leading to a large shared deck with patio tables and chairs. A... More

Good value overall. Everything is economical: room size, bed quality, breakfast, facilities, etc. Saving on such properties allows reasonable prices at a fairly expensive destination. It's a good place if the main purpose is to see Acadia, with not much time spent in the hotel.

Every year for the past 5 years we have stayed at the BHM for our annual biking trip in Acadia. Our family of four (kids now 9 and 11) love the simplicity and convenience to the carriage paths in Acadia. The motel has a separate garage to keep bikes during your stay. The motel is walking distance to town, although... More

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!

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
