This is a great place to stay if you are 2 people on a budget who are looking for a simple, clean room. The place doesn't show very well from the outside, but inside the rooms are clean. Basic is the key word for this motel. If you are looking for a comfortable bed and a hot shower while traveling... More

I've been wanting to get back to Acadia and Bar Harbor and chose the Robbins Motel off a recommendation from my cousin. I wanted a place to lay my head at night since I would be out in the park or town during the day. This fit the bill exactly. The rooms are clean and they do some nice touches... More

Room was clean and the cable TV worked. Affordable but not somewhere I would recommend unless you are broke and desperate. Very, very small bathroom so small, dead plants... I regretted booking. Make a better choice and spend a couple more dollars.

If your looking for a 5 star motel this isn't it. You get the very basic s here. A bed, shower, TV, WiFi. It is a very clean room and if you just need a place to clean up and rest it does just fine. Plus only $69 a night.

First the Pros: the price is dirt cheap compared to other Bar Harbor motels, it is very close to Acadia and about a ten minute drive to Bar Harbor. It is oddly quaint: wood paneling, a lobster tile in the bathroom, a shower that you have to climb up into. The room is very clean as stated in previous reviews.... More

If you're looking for amenities this is not the place, if you want a very clean place to stay and aren't on vacation to watch TV, then stay here. Yes it's small, but the bed was comfortable, it was very clean, and it's only five miles from the center of Bar Harbor.

I booked 2 rooms for 4 adults a month in advance. I called to confirm a few days before arrival. They only had me down for one room and guaranteed they would find me another one before my arrival date. I'm glad a booked another place because they never called me back till this day. :(

We were booking late and couldn't seem to find anything reasonably priced. We went into this with eyes wide open, understanding it would be very basic -- a clean room with AC and a shower. In a pinch, I would do this again but I really missed having a mini fridge, coffee in the room, strong wifi (spotty) and a... More

We arrived about dinner time and were given our keys for the "rooms". By rooms I mean trailers that have rooms built on them. These rooms sere tiny and felt slapped together. I worked for companies that put trailers together for construction sites that were better than this place, The bathroom door was a sliding door because they did not... More

I chose the Robbins because of the reasonable price, and it is on the bus line to the park. It was clean, the shower had excellent water pressure. It was dated, no hair dryer, no breakfast or coffee in the room. But, I thought it was good value, convent to the park and sightseeing and it was quiet. That was... More
