We spent two days at the Belle Isle Motel during our recent travels in New England. The room was clean, the water pressure was strong, and the service was great. I would recommend this motel to anyone who wants to stay close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, but doesn't want to deal with the hassle of staying downtown and doesn't mind traveling economically.

Just spent 5 days in Beautiful Bar Harbor , ME at the Belle Isle Motel. This was a great choice!!! The Motel is very clean ( NO cigarette smells, No Bed Bugs). There is a wonderful heated pool that is also very clean. The showers are always HOT and the water pressure is AWESOME. The room service is perfect with fresh towels and a wonderful clean smell everyday. The TV's work !, the WiFi works! The Owners of the property Camille and Darren are very kind and helpful offering big, thick towels for the pool ,and the morning offers a breakfast everyday in the office with really Great coffee ( that Darren makes good and strong ) and a variety of pastries, danish , and the best apples EVER...and many great conversations with other guests and of course Camille and Darren. All of this at a very affordable rate....I will definately be back to the Belle Isle...Thanks Camille!!!!

Stayed during a busy week at Acadia NP and as a result of my fouling up our reservation date they were full on the day we arrived but they were most helpful in checking out other motels and were able to find one for us. We stayed the next night and were very pleased with the facilities. Not a fancy chain but a family run operation who take pride offering great accommodations but very helpful in suggesting things to do. Strongly recommended for anyone looking for a good, clean and affordable motel in the area.

This was THE find !! Room/bathroom was very clean; plenty of fresh towels and anything else that was needed. Cable tv, internet, laundry on site, heated pool and a porch with chairs for sitting in the sun or viewing the evening sky. Everyone was extremely courteous and friendly. A nice breakfast of sweet rolls, english muffins, fruit, juice, coffee, was ready in the office each morning. There is also a free shuttle service that will pick you up from the end of the drive. We took it to go into town but can go into Acadia National Park and other places close by, as well.

Just spent 5 nights and had a wonderful experience. The room was small but I knew that when I booked. It was plenty comfortable enough and there were outdoor options for sitting and relaxing. I was looking for a safe, quiet, clean and reasonable place to stay while visiting Acadia and found it here. Camille was friendly and helpful and it was nice meeting other people from various places. This is an exceptionally clean place to stay - a continental breakfast - coffee in your room - close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. A great deal! Thanks for a great stay! Hope to be back!

The price was nearly half of other properties in the area at this time of the year (in high season). We were pleasantly surprised to learn that a continental breakfast was provided. Rooms were spacious and clean but decor was dated. Staff was friendly and helpful, answered all of our questions about local dining and touring Acadia. The motel is NOT in the city of Bar Harbor (it is several miles away) but it is a very short drive to Acadia (also on the free shuttle bus route).

Belle Isle Motel is on the outskirts of town, but easy driving distance to Acadia NP and downtown Bar Harbor. Our rate was substantially lower than any of the in town establishments I considered. The owners take care of the day to day operations and are very friendly. A light breakfast is available from the office in the morning. The decor is a bit dated, but it is clean and comfortable.
