“Great Stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

Not fancy but a great value for the economical traveler. Has both motel-like rooms on one side of Rt. 3 in Hull's Cove and self-contained cottages on the other side. June 18th rate for two nights in a large motel room was $102 including taxes!! Cottage rates are less. There is no pool. Washer, dryer and ice machine available. Easy access to all parts of Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park with out the crowds of Bar Harbor.

Came up to Bar Harbor without reserving a room this trip to see what the rates would be when we got there (sometimes you get a better rate when you just show up). Been to Bar Harbor many, many times and usually stay elsewhere. Was not looking for a motel with a pool since it was mid-September and was too cold to swim even in a heated pool. Was astonished with the rates of rooms in the area, almost summer rates. After driving around for an hour stopping at motels and also making phone calls, I decided to check in on Barton's, hadn't stayed there since my family rented their big house across the street in 1983. I called Barton's and the owner said he had an in-law suite available above a utility room behind the motel. Thought that was kind of weird, but I was glad I drove over to check it out. It was like having our own little 1 bedroom house secluded from the rest of the motel area. We had our own private driveway, too. The unit was great, built around 1988-89, and was very comfortable and nice. The best part was that it was only $68.00 a night. Compare that to the other motels in Bar Harbor $100-145 a night.

We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed our stay there immensely. I wish they had a pool, though, as I would like to stay there in the summertime when we go back up again.

If you're looking for a basic, nice motel at a very reasonable rate, then you really need to check Barton's out. The staff is very friendly, too!

This is the second time we have stayed at Barton's Hotel & Cottages. We stayed one night being we decided to extend our vacation and the place we were staying did not have any vacancy for the additional night. I did not write a review the first time as I was not a member of trip advisor at that time. This time we stayed in one of their hotel rooms. The room had 2 double beds and was clean. The furnishings were a litte dated but more than functional and in good repair. There was a refridgerator and coffee maker in the room. We had our dog with us and there was a minimal charge for him to be in the room ($10). They also put us in a end room to make it easier for us to walk him. The family that runs this place was very friendly and helpful. The cottages are also very clean and have fully functional kitchens. I would definately reccomend this place and stay here again. The rates are reasonable. We would have stayed here in the two bedroom cottage for our entire vacation but we were too late booking our vacation and it was taken. We had received a 20% discount at Testa's restaurant in Bar Harbor by showing them our room key (bonus - food was good)!

Room Tip: Book cottages early they go fast because the are a good value
