Cromwell Harbor Motel
Ranked #22 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 28, 2010

I really liked this hotel. The rooms were a good size, clean and well-presented. Ours had a mini fridge, microwave, and small kitchen sink which was useful for breakfast and lunch when you didn't want to go out. It was about a ten minute walk into town, past diners, bars, and restaurants (and a small grocery store). We felt perfectly safe walking into town even at night. The pool looked nice, but we were too busy making use of the park to try it. Reception was friendly and gave us some good advice on getting to the park and where to buy groceries and gas. Wifi was a little patchy if that's important to you, but I think Bar Harbor has a problem generally. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here on the last few nights of my honeymoon w/ my wife. We couldn't believe how affordable it was for such a nice place. The rooms were recently remodeled and it's even got flat screens and HD tv!
It's just outside of the more touristy part of town but still walking distance to all the action. I would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I just got back from Bar Harbor, and this is where we spent four nights. You can see right away when you drive in to the motel parking area that the owners really take good care of their motel. Freshly paved and lined parking lot surrounded by nice lawn areas with beautiful flower arrangements. There is also a very nice pool that is spotless! The rooms are super clean with nice furnishings. For us, this was a great find, as we like to walk in to town and leave our car at the motel. It is less than half a mile to the center of town. We will DEFINITELY be staying here when we go back.

Recently rebuilt. The rooms were big, clean quiet. The staff we met (owner) was extremely helpful and pointed us at good places to go or to eat as well as the places to avoid. The pool was heated and clean.
Overall a wonderful experiance

I've stayed at Crowell Harbor Motel several times and have always been very satisfied and comfortable. The cleanliness of the rooms, and the comfort of them have been welcomed. Jan and John are local people and have always maintained a high standard. This is a motel without the bells and whistles that take more of your money. Try it, you'll like it!

We have family in Bar Harbor and usually visit at least twice a year, but this was in season and our usual place was renting by the week. We choose this motel because we had noticed it was being remodeled and enlarged, and because it was well located for visiting with our grandchildren. We had a family room (maybe the only one?) with a queen bed and two twins for the kids. It was quite spacious with a microwave and a small refrig. The room was ground floor and had a porch in the front. The biggest attraction was the heated pool that was super clean and that we often had to ourselves. The location at the far end of busy Main street made it quiet. I would stay there again. They charge $10 a head for over two which I am not used to paying with the chains, etc but Bar Harbor has a very short season and in Summer it can be crowded and expensive. Other than the pool there isn't much for the kids, but there are nice lawns, and beautiful planting.

Stayed: June 2010, traveled with family
