We try to rate properties based on the category they fall into. A motel should not get a one star rating because you are comparing it to a Ritz property. Far to may people on trip advisor seem to do that. For this review, we give the Belle Isle four stars in the category of economical roadside motel. This motel is easy to find - its right on the road between I-95 and Bar Harbor. The property itself is clean and neat. The office closes at night but they provide a pickup and drop off for your room key (nice touch). The room itself was small. With two large suitcases, it was a little cramped. For the price, which was reasonable, it you should not expect more. The beds were comfortable and all sheets and towels were clean and plentiful. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot. A coffee maker is in the room and stocked with Green Mountain Coffee. The only suggestions we would have are to replace the tv and a/c unit and upgrade the cable service. The tv was an old unit (not flat screen) and the picture was blurry at times. Also would be nice to have HBO and CNN. As far as the A/C unit, it worked well i.e. got the place plenty cold but was somewhat noisy. Overall our stay was comfortable and pleasant.
