“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

This was my favorite Hampton Inn! Our room was clean, quiet and spacious. The breakfast hostess was so nice, and her team kept the breakfast area clean and filled, and I loved the waffle maker. There were fresh baked cookies and coffee/tea setup in the late afternoon, which is very welcoming after a full day of hiking and sightseeing.

It wasn't our first visit to Acadia, and staying at the Hampton Inn in Ellsworth was so much nicer than the craziness of Bar Harbor. Schoodic, Southwest and Northeast Harbor are gems, so allot time for those areas. There are also great lobster places on the way from Acadia to the hotel, and Bangkok Restaurant was also a nice find. Enjoy!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 134, which was at the end of the first floor, away from the pool.

It started out great because we arrived in Maine at 1:00pm and our room was ready to check in to. It was clean and very large for a Hampton Inn. I love that the room only had a shower with plenty of hot water. We went out to sightsee and lunch and came back to the hotel to sit in the jacuzzi before dinner and the pool area was locked and no one could be found to find out why, oh well nap instead. The hostess for breakfast was so friendly and brought us the mints and asked if there was anything we needed for our day. The only downfall to this property is that the front desk is not very friendly...they need to take lessons from the breakfast hostess

We were once again pleased with our Hampton inn stay. It is hard for me to stay anywhere besides Hampton. The staff was wonderful. The people who prepared our breakfast were so friendly and helpful. We were offered mints to take with us each day. The laundry facility was very clean. The work out room has lots of options.

This is a nice Hampton Inn. Well kept, clean rooms and friendly staff. The rooms are fairly typical Hampton Inn rooms except that the mini fridge was larger than usual and even had a small freezer section plus we had a microwave. This made it easy to keep some snacks in the room and to reheat foods. Breakfast was quite good. Each day they offered something different, from cheese omelets, to western omelets, to scrambled eggs plus a different meat (canadian bacon, polish sausage, bacon etc). The oatmeal was really good too. When we returned after an actve day out we were greeted with freshly baked cookies and coffee, tea or hot chocolate and a fire in the fireplace. There are several supermarkets and restaurants nearby and a Walgreens on the corner. The LL Bean Factory outlet is just a few doors down. Acacia national park and Bar Harbor downtown are approximately 20 minutes away. Overall we had a pleasant stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This hotel is bright, comfortable, with especially good service, extensive breakfast and away from the tourist traps. Ellsworth is a good town if you want to stay away from the more expensive Bar Harbor, or older mom and pop motels near Acadia National Park. It is about 25 minutes from the park and/or Bar Harbor for sight-seeing. Ellsworth has shopping centers and less expensive restaurants. The hotel is not cheap in season, but is reasonable when compared with other hotels in this tourist area. Our hostess at breakfast was especially nice, getting to know each guest and offering tips for activities.

I've always been a fan of Hampton Inn, and stayed at their hotels whenever I could.

The most serious problem I had in my latest visit was that as I was leaving my room in the morning, I saw housekeeping throwing the 'clean' bed linen (they were folded and stacked neatly) on the floor, next to each room door.

How on earth can that be sanitary?! Now I'm worried that the bed linen I slept on last night sat on a dirty floor the morning before - a floor which people, luggage and carts soil on a regular basis with foot traffic.

I can assure you that it will be the last time I stay at a Hampton Inn. I have an upcoming reservation in Sept that I will be doing everything to change to another chain!

This hotel is about a 1/2 drive from Acadia National Park and the Bar Harbor area. Nice clean hotel with good breakfast. Very crowded durring the summer months. Conveniently located around some shopping centers and restaurants. Lobster pounds within a 15 minute drive. The hotel is fairly pricey. We got a room with 2 double beds for around $150 per night with a discount. Staff was great. A nice place to stay if you are visiting the area.
