“Best place I know of in Bar Harbor”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We have stayed here 3 times and will be returning in September. That should tell you something right there. Nicely situated, recently updated, quiet and clean. The price is more than fair. We have looked for other places in Bar Harbor but can't find anyplace better unless we paid about two and a half times the money. Go!

Room Tip: For 2 people I prefer the motel on want to be in an end room on the top floor or one of the cottages...

We stayed in the motel portion - I think it was number 25. This was a spacious room on the second floor at the end of the building. There was almost too much room for just the two of us!
The room included a small fridge, a good wifi connection, a comfortable armchair, a loveseat, a desk and a coffeemaker. There were 2 entrances to our room. The sliding door to the shared balcony let in a lot of light. The view was wonderful. Parking was easy although it's not right at the doorstep.

We could hear the people in the next unit at times.

Good choice for a motel outside of Bar Harbor. It is off the highway on a secluded road.

We have stayed at Edgewater each summer for several years. It's always been nice, but
this year we were pleasantly surprised to see that the owners have completely renovated
the rooms and updated them to being a little more modern. They did a beautiful job and
everything is new and nice, including a big flat screen TV.
There is a lovely deck to sit on and watch the water and boats. It is set back from
the main road so is quiet and peaceful.
The owners are friendly and accommodating. Beds are comfortable, and the
shower is wonderfully strong and plenty of hot water.
Close enough to Bar Harbor and Acadia Park to make it easy to leave the comfort of
this lovely place and experience the excitement of the town and park. But always a
pleasure to get "back home" to our little room with it's great sitting deck. We just love it!

My husband & I stayed for 10 days in early July in one the cottages. The cottage had everything you could need, was comfortable and homey with an awesome view of the cove!! Loved to sit on the porch to eat breakfast and watch the lobsterman working. Perfect location off the main road but close to everything. Can't wait to go back!!!

Just came back from this hotel and would not stay here again. We stayed in hotel portion that was just average although the view is great. Bed was very uncomfortable and they did not clean the room other than making the bed. Our friends stayed in one of the cottages which was very rundown and very small. Tried having dinner outside by the back overlooking the water but could not due to the large amount of bugs jumping into our food.

Our family stayed here for a weekend. Perfect location. Close to all the "to do's" and quiet and peaceful for some R&R. Our kids enjoyed the access to the beach area, where they spent hours searching for little crabs, shells, and one night with flashlight in tow, saw a baby squid close to the shore.
We stayed in a Motel Room, which was very nicely updated, super clean, beds comfy, very quiet and peaceful.
Would definitely stay again and will definitely recommend.

The owner Dave made sure at check in that we had info about the area and made it known he could answer any questions we had. Short of controlling the weather he did everything he could to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. We stayed in the motel which was newly renovated and quite adequate for our needs. Quiet spot off the main drag with beautiful ocean views. Would stay again if we were in bar harbor area without our RV. We do plan to return in a year or so.

Room Tip: We stayed in motel as we weren't there for a whole week (required for cottages). Was quite comfy...
