I have visited Bar Harbor every summer for the past 5 years and love staying at the Edenbrook. It is a basic motel with everything I would need for my stay. There's nothing fancy or extravagant to the room, but it was impeccably clean and the bed was very comfortable. I stayed in a room with 2 double beds in the third building off the road. For four 20 year olds, it was perfect! I couldn't get over how comfortable the bed was and how well I slept that night! For a very reasonable rate of 80 dollars plus taxes we got a room that supplied us with plenty of towels, coffee and tea right in the room, cable tv, heat and air conditioning (and suprisingly we needed the heat in july!) with a nice shower with good pressure. The bathroom was nicely cleaned and we liked the option of having a shower or bath. We stayed a total of three days, and the room was cleaned very promptly after we left in the morning.
The staff was very friendly and informative. I talked to the manager in the morning and he could tell me anything I wanted to know about the island. It looked as though it was a family business, because the maid that did our room was his daughter! She was very friendly and had some good recommendations for places to eat as well as an extremely good cleaner. Next summer I'll be sure to stay at Edenbrook, as I always do!
