Though it is half an hour from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, I like to 'camp out' at Hampton Inns at night after a full day of strenuous activity and this one was the closest. The motel has a wonderful breakfast--including make your own waffles and fresh fruit--to kick start the day. The bedding package is the gold standard in motels--the duvets are washed for each guest and there is a choice of super comfortable pillows.
The room I got had a microwave and fridge, but there was no whirlpool option, which was disappointing. After making it up the Beehive and then going for a sunset paddle, a good whirlpool would have been welcome.
Though there was a whirlpool for the general public near the swimming pool.
A washing machine and dryer were available if one needed to freshen up one's soggy gear.
There was also free internet access and a really nice business center.
My one reservation was that, though I am a HiltonHonors Gold member, one of the women at the front desk denied me a bottle of water when I asked for it just after breakfast (we were there for four days and that day, I had forgotten to take a breakfast bag)--she wanted me to purchase the water instead. I eventually got the water, but the experience left a bad feeling. I routinely ask for a bottle of water when I am leaving and have never had a problem at other Hampton locations.
