“Very nice, clean and quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2006

Highbrook Motel is a very nice, clean and friendly place to stay. It is not expensive, nothing fancy, but exactly what we needed. We had a good AARP rate at $79 a night at a time when most other places we contacted were asking at least $50 more a night than that (for the same size room). We had a "mini suite" that had an authentic "retro" sitting area (meaning original furniture from the late 60's or 70's) and eating area, a refrigerator, microwave and a king-size bed. The room was immaculate. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. It is an "old fashioned" motel, one where you actually park your car directly outside your motel room in an assigned space. It has two sections, one on the main road, and one behind that, which is a quieter with little traffic. We stayed at the quieter section. It is also extremely convenient to the downtown area and the park.

This mom and pop place is a terrific value at $70 per night with a AAA discount. It's just about a five minute drive from Bar Harbor. The rooms are really large with a huge dressing room/sink area seperate from the shower/tub area. Immaculately clean, comfortable beds, cozy and charming. We have stayed at the Highbrook twice and will stay there when we go back to Bar Harbor. The bus stops directly in front of the motel and runs by this motel every half hour in the day time, and every 15 minutes in the evening. Finding parking downtown is really difficult.
If you're on a budget but want comfort and super clean rooms, this is the place.
