Reviewed September 26, 2013

Have been coming to Bar Harbor for years. We have stayed in a few different places. Some good and others bad. This Sept. We stayed in a horrible place a few miles from town. We decided to stay an extra night and we found the Cromwell Harbor Hotel! Soo glad we stayed here. Super clean, great location walking distance to town and the prices are reasonable ! We will be back!

This hotel is in a great location in Bar Harbor - close to all the attractions, yet far enough south on Main Street (Hwy 3) to avoid the crowds. Also offers easy access to Acadia National Park and Cadillac Mountain. Staff is wonderful, and the rooms are nice. We try to get to Maine every summer, and Cromwell Harbor is our first choice.

We enjoyed our two nights here. This is not a luxury choice so don't book here and end up disappointed. This is a super neat and clean property run by really nice local folks. It's not new and could use some updating but we were very comfortable and thought the proximity to town was perfect for us. A good value in Bar Harbor.

We also stayed upstairs in a King-sized-bedroom and it was very clean and comfortable. Nice to have the ceiling fan over the bed too. I was surprised how quiet it was there. We enjoyed the convenience of walking down the street to all the restaurants and shops. We walked to breakfast and dinner with no problem. It's also very close to the Acadia Park entrance. We listened to all the reviews before us and didn't go wrong. We also recommended this place to friends and they loved it. Can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: like the upstairs because noone loud is above you

So we stayed here ten nights I think while in Bar Harbor. Our tenth time here in Bar Harbor and we have stayed in cottages, B&B's, campground, however this is a first for us staying in a motel. My wife researched this very well as we don't like surprises. This place had a lot going for it. In two words, Imm- maculate. One of the cleanest places we have ever stayed. Great job! The room was enormous like almost 25 X 15. It had a nice little balcony for sitting, a refrigerator, a very comfortable king bed, Wifi, flat screen TV, a table to have breakfast and a nice shower. We stayed on the second floor, end room, so no one could walk on our heads. The motel is located on Main Street on the quiet end but it is only a short 10 minute leisurely walk to the center of everything in Bar Harbor. Also close to one of Acadia's entrances. What can I say to maybe improve this great motel? New towels would be nice and although the women we encountered were pleasant the man was not. My wife said he ignored her a few times and I unsuccessfully tried to make eye contact one morning. I mean come on we were there 10 nights you could have said, "Hi" or nodded hello. In spite of this guy we would come back for all the reasons mentioned. Hope this good review puts a smile on your face mister Cromwell.

Room Tip: Just a matter or preference, we don't like first floor rooms cause sometimes you got heavy walke...

We were looking for a location that was near to town to walk, as parking in town can be hard to come by. We needed something that would fit our budget over Labor Day weekend (we just completed paying for a wedding)... We found this in the Cromwell Harbor Motel... location was minutes from town, property was set back from main road. Rooms were clean and quite large. Shower/tub could have been slightly wider, but it worked...The first night we were tired and ate at Poor Boys excellent excellent!!! Will be going back to Cromwell and Bar Harbor....

We visited in August so naturally Bar Harbor was busy. If you don't mind a short 1/4 mile walk to town the Cromwell Harbor is the place to stay. We found the staff/owners to be very friendly. The grounds are kept beautiful, the pool clean and our King room was very clean. The King room was very large and had a nice balcony to sit out and relax. The room has nice windows for a cross ventilation so we rarely used the air conditioner. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return to Bar Harbor sooner than later. When we do we plan to stay at the Cromwell Harbor.

Room Tip: Second floor King rooms with the balcony are the rooms for couples. You only have a little traffic n...
