“Very good for a decent price near Acadia NP!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

We had 2 double beds which were comfortable and we slept well each night. If you want to watch TV, they have plenty of channels to choose from. At night, it got down into the 50's and we had to turn on the heater but it was quiet and efficient. The bathroom was clean with plenty of towels.
The owners were friendly. In the morning, they have free coffee, OJ, and a small variety of pastries in the office, which is very nice since there is no breakfast place close by.
Try to get a room that is off the main road (greater than room #10) since it would be quieter.

Room Tip: Ask for a room greater than #10 to be further away from the main road.

We stayed here for 2 nights to balance the cost of hotels. The room we stayed was small. Heater and air conditioner were provided in the room, but it was hard to control the heater; it's either too hot or too cold. We ended up with both air conditioner and heater on to get the right temp. Location of this hotel is not very ideal, it's kind far from town. Not that far from Acadia Park or Trenton bridge lobster restaurants. All of these were still acceptable for the price. Except the sheets that made us itchy. For both nights, sheets had (probably, cause it's white) detergent powder all over. We had to wipe those out by hands but just couldn't get all of those out..... I hope that can be fixed because we did like the staff at reception.

We were very pleasantly surprised with the Belle Isle, the office staff was very pleasant and accomodating. We were happy to avoid the high prices in Bar Harbor. We will stay again.

Wonderful clean and comfortable room. We met 4 different staff people who were all friendly and knowledgeable about the area. If you like to hike, bike, and just be active the Belle Isle is your ticket- close to the park but not in Bar Harbor. I have already begun to tell my friends who like to bike and hike the Maine coast that they can't go wrong staying at the Belle Isle Motel. I left something in the room when we left and Camille (one of the owners) is mailing it to me. Just another example of their great service and attention to detail. Thanks guys. We will be back!

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.
