“Bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

Agree with most of the previous reviews. The bathroom is very small.

I stayed there for two nights with my family. Before we leave on the second day, we told the owner not to clean or touch anything in our kitchen or bedroom because we had a lot of food in the kitchen and we put things in our ways in the bedroom, and told her just clean the bathroom only. It seemed very nice that she immediately gave a pleasant reply by “of course, I understand. Don’t worry; we will be sure to only take care the bathroom.” However, when we came back from the second day trip, our bedrooms and bathroom were cleaned and our things were moved. Besides, some of our stuffs were on the floor. My family also got upset about this kind of service like invading our privacy, and we will never go back there again.

We loved our little 2 bedroom cottage. Each child had their own bed and they shared a bedroom. The couple who owned the motel was friendly and helpful. Great experience and highly recommend it. Loved the yellow color of the buildings!! The kitchen was managable to cook it. Plus there were grills if you wanted to use them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunnyside. We stayed one night in the hotel and the other nights in the cottages. The room and cottage were immaculate. Very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Romantic. Cozy. Wonderful and extremely friendly couple owns and runs the place. Close to everything and very affordable. We will stay here again! I highly recommend!!

My husband and I were traveling in the Bar Harbor area and stayed at the Sunnyside Motel & Cottages. The owners were very helpful and very welcoming. Our room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, and everything was incredibly clean! When we decided to extend our stay in Bar Harbor, we tried to book another night (without reservations) and unfortunately, the Sunnyside was full. The owner took the time to call another motel in the area of comparable price and was able to secure a room for us. It is so nice to come across kind people who still take pride in their operation and go out of their way for their customers. We definitely recommend the Sunnyside and will be sure to stay there on our next trip to Maine!

Helen is a gem at the Sunnyside. The location is at the entrance of Bar Harbor county and therefore about a 20 minute ride to the town, but located close to great lobster pounds and easy access to the "quiet side" and Acadia entrance. Don't expect plush surroundings but the spaciousness, cleanliness and charm make both the cottage and motel rooms a great value and a quiet location.

We stayed in the motel portion because the cottages were full. It was rather rustic and cozy but clean. It was a short drive into both Bar Harbor and Acadia Nat'l. Park. The man at the front desk (I believe an owner) was quite helpful. We were only staying one night and arrived in late afternoon. He laid out our stay for us so that we could experience as much as possible in a short time. Best of all, the price was reasonable for this area!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a good value. It was close enough to Bar Harbor, but a much better price than hotels located closer into town. I was unsure of staying there at first because I usually like to stay at chain hotels, but m husband convinced me based on cost that we should give it a try. I have already decided that when we go back to Bar Harbor, we will stay there because it was great! Nice owners, clean room, close enough location, and affordable! We recommended it to another couple for their trip, and they also felt the same way!
