I travel a lot and have stayed in many B & B's. This is the loveliest! The accommodations were comfortable and the food was 5 star. I will definitely stay at Moseley's again. Walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor.

Great location. Easy walk to pick up bus. Nice to park car at inn and not need to deal with traffic for a week. Stayed in motel part. Room was just fine. Not much closet space. People at desk very helpful. Maine is a state of great beauty. Ride the mail boat to the Cranberry Islands, visit Acadia National Park,... More

We looked at different places to stay and we are so happy we chose this one. It was on a quiet side street yet close to everything. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. The check in Gentleman gave us so much information as to what to see and do. He even gave us restaurant ideas based... More

Thank you for the lovely review. I think people comment on the location because it is a big hit to be close to everything yet off on a quiet side street. The best of both worlds. We try to share our knowledge and love of this island as much as we can. Glad you enjoyed your visit. More

This was a wonderful experience. I stayed in the Town Motel. I have stayed here in the past as well. It is just steps from Main Street yet so very quiet. The rooms were well appointed, the beds very comfortable, the staff extremely pleasant. It doesn't get any better than this for the value and location. Plan to go again... More

Trying to stay in a budget under $150/night to stay by Acadia NP, our options were limited to Moseley and a couple of chain motels outside of town, and we really wanted to be in Bar Harbor. We stayed on the first floor of the motel, and the side street was quiet except for people at the motel parking outside.... More

Moseley Town Motel was very convenient to restaurants and shops. The entrance to Acadia was a short drive. Clean and comfortable rooms, easy parking, and a beautiful lawn. Each room had a keurig and mini fridge. My family would definitely stay here again.

I have been staying at the Moseley Town Motel for over 10 years. I always found it clean above all with the owners friendly and accommodating. The location perfect for walking into town and not worrying about where to park the car. It was truly a gem. Just this past week for a five-day stay I was very disappointed. I... More

This review is very upsetting and i find it hard to believe a family would stay in a room that was soo gross and hard to take for 5 days without mentioning anything until the departure.I am in the rooms all the time helping the housekeepers and know if there is anything wrong.

Very nice, clean basic rooms (family had 3 in motel). Quiet side street. Comfy bed (unusual for me). Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Close to entering Acadia National Park Loop road. Stayed 2 nights; we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in room 7 (Precipice), it and the whole inn is beautiful and luxurious. The breakfast was a standout. For us, the four legged inn keepers were a true hit! My 7 year old son really enjoyed rubbing Kong's belly, and I sense that the love was reciprocal. Stylish, central, great value all the way! Book it already, stop... More

Due to a booking snafu, we were able to enjoy both the motel and B&B. Both had very comfortable beds, lovely linens, and were immaculate. The Town Motel was simpler, but tastefully decorated. The Inn room was beautiful - a classic Victorian B&B room. The breakfasts were amazing with a wide variety of choices, and the atmosphere at breakfast was... More
