We stayed here for 3 nights exploring Acadia national park. It's on the main road about 7 miles from Bar Harbor, and across the main road, there's a road which is half a mile walk from the shore - a great place to watch the sunset. Very friendly, helpful and obliging folks at reception - staff are a real plus... More

We chose Belle Isle because of all the favorable reviews. We knew we wouldn't be spending much time in our room. We found it perfect for us! Clean and comfortable. Spent most of our days in the park but found the bed great and the bathroom small but well equipped. Wifi worked great and were not bothered by the noise... More

We found the Belle Isle Motel in Trip Advisor while planning a trip to Acadia National Park. The Belle Isle Motel is on the outskirts of Bar Harbor, off the main road that leads to 'Downtown' Bar Harbor, in a quiet area. This is a one-story motel where you park right outside your door- no lugging your suitcase upstairs! Our... More

This motel is pretty basic, but adequate and clean if you just want somewhere to sleep at a very low price for the area. The room was spacious. I probably would have ranked it higher if there didn't happen to be a very loud party across the street the night we stayed there. The motel staff called the cops and... More

Stayed here for two nights with our 5 year old daughter in October. The rooms are very dated, but they were very clean and the exterior was exceptionally well maintained and pretty. For sure they could do with a little update here. Even just switching the 70s bed spreads for plain white would be a start, but for $70 a... More

Just a 5 minute drive from Acadia National Park. Conveniently located right off route 3. The rooms are small but sufficient. Would be nice to have a continental breakfast or check-in snack. WiFi is slow but available.

The rooms are very small but are also very clean. Since you are not in your room much because there is so much to do in that area, the size was not a factor. The location is about 6 miles from downtown Bar Harbor and onlt a couple from entrance to Arcadia National Park.

Could not get a reasonably priced room at the establishments we usually stay at for the dates we wanted. Went online and found the Belle Isle Motel, made a booking with a certain amount of trepidation. When we arrived, we got a really pleasant surprise!! Rooms were spotless and comfortable, property was obviously well kept and clean. James the manager... More

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. This is an old-style motel like those I stayed in with my parents on family vacations in the 1950s and 1960s. The rooms are small and simple, but adequate. The rooms and grounds were kept clean and well maintained. The nightly bonfire was very nice, as were the chairs outside of... More

Room was small but very clean. It is good budget place to stay near to Acadia national park. Room heater was not automatic so I had to adjust the temperature manually everytime. It is a decent place to stay.
