Why try anywhere else? 1 mile from town, 1 mile from Acadia, wonderful staff. Most important to me: spotlessly clean every day, every stay. It's just far enough away from downtown to be quiet and close to everything Acadia and to all Mt. Dessert Island have to offer. We absolutely love it at the Highbrook.

This motel was surprisingly beautiful. Super clean, large room, bathroom was immaculate, bed was comfortable, staff were very friendly. Close to Main Street downtown but far enough to be away from the busy tourist area. Lots of things to do. Acadia National Park and the Nature Boat Tour were so well worth it and inexpensive. Absolutely LOVED it. Absolutely will... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful three days at the Highbrook this past week and could not be happier. This was our third visit in the past year and we're already planning a fourth for next year. The rooms are large and spotless. You could eat off the floor! The staff is super friendly and very helpful. The breakfast... More

The Highbrook Motel is a real gem. It is very convenient to Bar Harbor but not in the middle of all the "action". It's close proximity to Acadia Ntl. Park was also another big plus. We could hike all day and then come home to a spacious, extremely clean room. We looked at several properties when we were deciding where... More

This was the cleanest motel we have stayed in, ever! Really a step back in time to the 60's in the lobby and exterior of this little motel but the room was huge, clean, and comfortable. The king bed was good plus we had free wifi, a mini fridge, flat screen TV, comfortable seating area and nice small dining table... More

I want to start by saying that I've never written an angry review before. I waited one year to file this review to see whether Highbrook would improve upon a glaring defect. They haven't, so I feel compelled to warn you. I almost destroyed the front bumper of our family car turning off Route 3 into the entrance of Highbrook.... More

HighbrookGM, General Manager at Highbrook Motel, responded to this review

Dear Lavog, I can certainly appreciate your concern for other motorists after you had the unfortunate mishap of scraping your car on the storm drain off of Route 3. I would like to clarify, however, that the section of road you are referring to is not on our property, at our entrance, or even attached to it. The storm drain... More

My recent three night stay in Bar Harbor at this motel was a delight. The room is clean, and decorated so prettily, I felt I was not in a motel room, but in someone's home. The room is square and not rectangular, which gave it a really open feeling. The grounds are lovely, with a huge lawn in front with... More

From arrival to check out we were treated like FAMILY. This motel is a step back in time. We enjoyed the 3 days we spent. We wanted to stay longer but no rooms were available for more nights. We would definitely stay here again. We have told everyone we talk to about our time at the Highbrook. We took advantage... More

This was probably our favorite hotel/motel on our 17 day motorcycle trip. It wasn't the nicest, but it was in a great location, made us feel like we were getting a great value, and they had everything we needed. This was the only place we stayed two nights, too. My wife doesn't like motels as much as hotels but at... More
