Great place to stay! Nice room, great mattress. Down a quiet street, so no night noise. Breakfast was fabulousness, not your normal B&B breakfast. Staff were excellent with unlimited info about the area. Stay with them, you will not be disappointed :)

We arrived a little early for our one night stay to join other family members who had been staying in the Inn. All the while we were expecting to leave our belongings in the car, but instead we were greeted with a full plate of warm scones, a smile and an invitation to begin our stay as our room was...

The Town Motel was exceptionally clean and comfortable. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and given information to find our way around Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The property is located very close to downtown so we were able to park our car and walk everywhere in town easily. We would definitely recommend this Inn or Motel to...

The room was simply wonderful - very spacious, with nice rocking chair and really large beds -...

We stayed in the motel section. Very comfortable, firm beds, nice shower. Located on a quiet side street but very short walk to the green, restaurants and Main Street. Free parking, small frig, well maintained property. Easy walk to the Harbor Walk. Would stay here again. Great location to explore Acadia.

Small motel in a residential area one block off Main Street. Very quiet. Small room. Five minute walk to waterfront. Plenty of restaurants. Easy onsite parking. They need real glassware and coffee cups!
