“Nice and simple”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

It is a simple motel with small rooms, decorated in 50-ties style. But it is very clean, staff is very friendly and it is a excellent lokation to start exploring acadia.Free wife works fine here.
i would recommend this motel to everyone who is looking for a nice and priceworthy place to sleep and wants to spend most of his time outside.

Here's this thing: this motel does not pretend to be anything it's not. It's message is this: you're not in Bar Harbor to sit inside all day, so nothing needs to be flashy. Its rooms have somewhat dated decor, but they are immaculately clean and serve their perfectly for a great price. My girlfriend and I went to Bar Harbor for Columbus Day weekend and spent it ocean kayaking, riding mountain bikes on the carriage roads, touring Atlantic Brewery, and walking around the summit of Cadillac Mountain. Robbins Motel provided us with two things 1.) a clean room that was comfortable and perfect for what we needed and 2.) extra money in our pockets to spend on other the other fun things there are to see. If you plan on sitting inside all day, not for you, but if you're in the area to see the beauty of Acadia--then it's perfect.

Fantastic 2 night stay during peak season. Halfway through a road trip up the east coast from Boston. Came all the way from Glasgow and in no way disappointed! Cheapest rooms for miles but cleanliness and service don't take a hit. Can't wait to come back!

For what you pay, this place is great. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, free wifi and full cable. It is very very basic, the decor is old and our room was small, but you can't expect anything more given the price.

This is the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed at Robbins. They are consistently the best price and consistently very clean. In addition, the units are well maintained and quiet. W always choose Robbins first if rooms are available.

For $45 a night in October. This is gotta be the best deal in town for solo travelers.
Room is pretty small but clean, fits a queen bed and leaves about two feet in each way, and has a TV, some storage, a full bath (interesting to have to step up into the shower). It does not have fridge or microwave (not that I needed it). Bed was decent. The motel is right next to Route 3, but luckily not many people travel this part at night, so the traffic noise was not a problem for me. No cooking. Max two people per room. Free Wifi. Coffee is offered but no breakfast. All rooms are on the first floor. You park right outside the room. The motel is about 15-20 minutes drive away from Acadia NP's Hull's Cove Visitor Center

I had a good chat with the staff upon arrival and they offered me some good tips on the geography of the park and later offered me first aid kits when I mentioned I had accidentally cut my leg on the Precipice. That's certainly worth one extra circle/star :)

Room was clean....was odd having to step up into the bathroom...a few stubbed toes in the middle of the night. Everything was very clean, but very old decor. Shelf along the long side of the room did turn out to be handy. For $45 what can you say. We stayed one night, but had a room next to the road and it was very noisy from traffic. We moved on for the next night.

Room Tip: Call earlier than we did so you get one in the back.
