This was our first time in Bar Harbor. We stayed in the Town Motel portion of the Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel. The room was clean, comfortable and bright. It is located close to down town Bar Harbor but in a very quiet location. We were able to get excellent night's sleep with no noise. The lady was very... More

Stayed at the Motel for our first trip to Maine. Couldn't have been more happy with the Motel or location. Having never having been to Bar Harbor the person checking us in was extremely helpful in giving us recommendations on where to eat and gave us good handouts of the area. Motel is on side street right off the main... More

We stayed at the Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel this past weekend. There are 2 parts to this property - the Inn and then Motel. We stayed in the motel part and it was great. Nothing fancy, but a clean room with a comfortable bed. The distance from the property to downtown Bar Harbor is perfect. I would recommend... More

Small motel in a residential area one block off Main Street. Very quiet. Small room. Five minute walk to waterfront. Plenty of restaurants. Easy onsite parking. They need real glassware and coffee cups!

Mosley's Cottage and Inn is within walking distance of the main downtown area. The room in their Town Motel was large, clean and comfortable. The owners were accommodating in helping us to find the best restaurants and things to do in the Bar Harbor area.

We stayed in the motel block early September during a two week fly drive in New England. This was the nicest place we stayed (and was nowhere near the most expensive). The location is excellent as many others have said. You can be in the centre of Bar Harbor with all its restaurants, bars, shops, access to bus transport etc... More

Owners were more than accommodating. We had the most beautiful room with fireplace, great bed, beautiful linens and an outdoor porch that looked into surrounding trees. Breakfast delicious with home made pastries and cooked to order eggs. Conveniently located within a two block walk of most Bar Harbor attractions and restaurants.

My wife and I visited the Inn for 3 nights over this past weekend and had a very comfortable stay. The Strath Eden room was very quiet. The bed was quite comfortable. The room was clean. The location couldn't be better - it's a short walk to everything Bar Harbor has to offer. There's no need to drive anywhere, including... More

Park in downtown Bar Harbor and walk to restaurants, coastal views, and free buses to spots around Acadia. We stayed at the motel. The room was clean and a great base for our time at Bar Harbor. Motel is just a short walk to Main Street but very quiet. Will stay here again.
