The Harbor View is a good deal. THere is a main 3 story building which houses the office and all rooms face the harbor. There is a parking lot in front of the main building; the lot is lined with a row of attached motel...More
Staff are great - friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful - walking distance to the small town of Southwest Harbor with several restaurants and stores. Do keep in mind these are Down East Maine tides - the photos are at high tide, and for...More
The property has both a couple of motel units and several cottages. We stayed in one of the larger cottages as we needed sleeping capacity for 5. Cute, comfortable, and convenient.

We have stayed st the Harbor View with friends many times over the years, and think it is absolutely delightful. Don't come here if you're looking for marble floors and gold fixtures. The rooms and cabinets are well-furnished, clean, and basic. The view is lovely,...More
Our stay in Southwest Harbor at the Harbor View Motel was a rustic, relaxing experience; quiet and as authentic as you can get on an island like this. Was the place a bit worn, the furnishings unintentionally retro? Yes! Was it clean? Yes! Did we...More
I guess my question would be why would you expect a guest to plunge the toilet? we were in the main building, the more "upscale" you have called it, but there was nothing upscale about the room at all. again, we loved the location, the view, the quietness, as I said.

We don't expect anyone to plunge the toilet...I'm not sure the circumstances, but maybe the cleaning staff was unavailable or the front desk personnel could not leave the office. I'm certainly sorry for the inconvenience. I'm also sorry the room in the main building was not up to your standard, but I don't think you will find a quality room with a view like that, for such an affordable price anywhere else on Mount Desert Island. we are in the process of making significant upgraded , and would love for you to give us another try. Thank you for your concern.
