We stay in Bar Harbor once a year and this was a perfect setting for our trip. This was right down town and we walked everywhere. The room was very clean - we stayed in the motel section. Everyone was very nice and helpful, even Griffin the resident Bull Mastiff greeted us.
We will now make this our first go-to for our annual stay.

Room Tip: We were on the bottom floor of the motel - very little noise from above. So even the bottom floor w...

We have stayed many places in Bar Harbor including several the much-touted hotels and this is our favorite for a number of reasons. Our room is large and comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts and snacks are terrific, and everyone is extremely helpful. We are treated as individuals and actually called by our names.

Room was clean. Nothing too fancy, but nothing wrong either. We stayed in the motel part not the main building. We had a mini fridge which was great for leftovers from dinner and chairs outside our room to sit and enjoy watching the fog rolling in at night. Downtown was right around the corner and everything was in walking distance. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Motel section has basic rooms, the main house looked very nice and a bit fancier

Mosley Bed and Breakfast was outstanding. First floor room was huge and private porch delightful. Breakfasts were varied with several choices and well prepared. Close to stores and several good restaurants. Staff manning reception desk were all informative.

We stayed here a few weeks ago in August, and really enjoyed our time. It is just a short walk from all of the attractions in town, so once we parked our car we did not need to get in our car at all unless we wanted to leave town. The staff was so friendly, and gave us great suggestions for dining, and they also had delicious baked goods in the lobby for everyone to enjoy. We stayed in the Town Motel portion of the inn, and the room was clean and had everything we needed. I would recommend this to couples, and families for a really enjoyable stay.

We like to hike hard and come home to a comfortable, clean, hassle free place to rest our feet and lay our heads. For our Bar Harbor trip, we wanted super comfortable and we found it in spades at the Moseley Inn. The Cadillac Room was superb, bed wonderfully soft yet supportive, with crisp linens and fat towels. We put the small frig to good use, and needed the A/C for 1 day. The room was small, but we found hooks and corners for what we needed. Breakfast was phenomenal. Eggs cooked to order and fresh daily baked pastries, and an absolutely perfect hostess who put everyone at ease. The b-fast crowd, 10-14 intrepid souls per seating (?), were from a wide background, some passing through, some hikers, some bikers. Morning conversation was fun! Highly recommended for a stay in Bar Harbor.
