“Perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Friendly staff, pleasant room made for a great stay! We will stay here again! We could walk to shops, restaurants, and the Shore Path. The motel is just a short drive from Acadia or you can walk uptown and take a LLBean bus. Great, great, location. Well worth the money. Good value!!

We had expected a little more of this basic motel especially for the price we paid. The rooms are very outdated and could definitely use an update. The continental breakfast is okay but nothing more. However, the location is fantastic and you can walk to all the shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor. Stay there for the location, if you want more than a very basic motel room then stay somewhere else.

We were disappointed right from the beginning! The bottom bed wheel crumbled on one side of the bed when we sat on it (we are not obese) and fell to the floor. We reported the problem to the office person and since there was no one to fix the bed, she gave us five 2"x2" square boards to put under the bed to hold it up. We asked to be moved to another room and she refused us. That night the other bottom bed wheel crumbled. Also, we walked around the room barefoot and with socks, and the bottom of our feet were black and our socks were black we threw them away. The rug probably had never been cleaned. It was gross and disgusting! The only plus to our stay was the motel was one block from town. You really do get what you pay for with this motel. Thank goodness our stay was only 2 nights.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Bar Harbor Villager Motel. I remember speaking with my clerk regarding your situation with the bed, and also I remember that we didn't happen to have any other rooms available, which is why we were not able to move you to another room. As far as the carpet, I can assure you that we clean our carpets very regularly, and believe that point was a bit exaggerated. I am always happy to speak to an unhappy guest should an issue arise, and I do my best to ensure a fair resolution to all problems. I only wish I had had the opportunity to speak with you, instead of reading about it on Trip Advisor.

This is an old-school motor lodge, complete with the plastic chairs outside your room looking out on the parking lot. However, it's in a great location and it's clean. The rooms have decent TV, microwaves and refrigerators. You have free parking and can walk to all of the restaurants and shopping in downtown Bar Harbor. The continental breakfast is not much and the rooms are dated, but overall it's a good value for the money.

We were disappointed when we arrived at Bar Harbor because the "nicer" hotels we had initally chosen were sold out. Our waitress suggested the Villager and we are glad she did. We stayed in the main building where the office is located.The rooms are nothing special (this is a motel) but they are clean and very quiet. The motel was almost sold out (the parking lot was full) but we didn't hear a sound coming from anywhere, and we even had the window open. The location is great because the motel is located right on the main street of Bar Harbor. If you want an inexpensive, clean, quiet place to stay that is extremely convenient to all of the shops, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The 2nd floor was very quiet. I don't know if the 1st floor would be as quiet since the cars wou...

We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed the room and location in the village. The room was large, clean and very nice. The only negative was their continental breakfast. Very skimpy. Had to go to the Acadia General Store for coffee and cinnamon rolls first in the morning. This is a very good hotel well situated in Bar Harbor. You'll like it.

This is a small motel with great breakfast included. Small bathroom and older beds. But great location to town. Good for short visit. Easily walk to everything. Maid service daily. Easy checking in. We enjoyed our three day stay and would recommend.
