The hotel was built not long ago and still has that clean, new look. It even still has a new "just constructed" smell about it. The staff was helpful, supplying us with maps and directions and suggestions.
The room had everything I could need: a microwave, a flatscreen tv, a fridge, alarm clock, safe, coffeemaker, wi-fi, and even a laptop pillow! The bed is super comfortable, but I'd have to agree with another reviewer that the AC was very loud and so was the fridge. It's a tricky balance with the sleep quality: comfy bed vs. loud appliances. Over time, I was able to tune out the humming as white noise so it worked for me.
The thing about the location is that it's quite a drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor (twenty minutes or so). It can be tiring to commute back and forth day after day. There aren't many good restaurants nearby in Ellsworth but there are plenty of supermarkets if you're on a budget. One last tip: the public bathrooms are located inside the pool room and not in an obvious place in the lobby.
