“Perfect choice for us.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Regretfully, only had one night in Bar Harbor. Needed a place close to the 'locals' hangouts. This place was perfect.

Its an old 50's era motel that has been taken care of. Very well. The 'motel' rooms are better than most 3-star hotels I've stayed in. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and cozy.

I thought the price was a little steep for a motel..but needed the location. It was worth it. Breakfast the next morning, complimentary, was nothing special...but convenient. Nice breakfast boy waiting on ya!

The best part....MOTEL CHAIRS outside they door!

Stayed 2 nights at the Bar Harbor Villager on a recent motorcycle trip to Maine. A very nice motel with very clean and comfortable rooms. Terrific location within walking distance of everything in Bar Harbor. Motorcycle friendly with parking right outside our door. Would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: We found the rooms on the bottom floor to work out best during our motorcycle trip.

We were happy with our stay at the Bar Harbor Villager Inn. Our package included a dinner meal at the Bar Harbor inn and a harbor cruise on the Margaret Todd. Both were great. The location was perfect for walking to the shops and restaurants in town.The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great. There was no extra charge for parking.

Yes, the location is absolutely perfect (including the proximity to the magnificent French restaurant across the street and the first-rate seafood place down the block) as the place is practically in the center of town. But the room was clean, comfortable and pretty, the breakfast was more than ample and charming, and the pool was clean, cool and lovely. For the height of late August, the price was very reasonable. We will definitely stay at the Bar Harbor Villager Motel again.

Room Tip: The second floor affords a good view.

We have been visiting Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Park for over 20 years and have been staying at the Villager for the last few years. We find it to be, while some what dated, to be comfortable and clean. It is the most convenient location we have found for the activities we like.

Room Tip: Ask for pool side

Our first visit to Bar Harbor was fabulous...a great motel, The Villager, made it perfect. The room was quiet, comfortable, and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast, which was included, as well as the two meals at the finest restaurant in Bar Harbor, and a bus trip through Acadia National Park, was all part of a reasonably priced package. We will certainly plan on returning

We did a considerable amount of on-line research before choosing the Bar Harbor Villager Motel, and we were not disappointed. It more than met our needs, and we will definitely stay there whenever we travel to that beautiful area in the future. Their rates were very competetive, and the motels that were less expensive were not in locations we would have enjoyed nearly as much. We were amazed at the size of the pool for an intown location and took time to take advantage of it on a particularly warm Sept day. The staff was very accommodating with any request or question we presented to them. When we arrived, it was before check-in time, but they suggested that we leave our vehicle in their parking lot during our wait. That was a huge convenience for us, and we were able to check out the area and select our dinner spot. This motel is in keeping with a casual coastal facility without fancy frills...just what we wanted!
