Acadia Pines was very clean and the room was in good repair. For the price we paid, we did not expect extra amenities. The room was very small (we stayed in the lowest priced room) but adequate. It even had a refrigerator and microwave. It was conveniently located close to Bar Harbor.
We recently stayed at Acadia Pines Motel. This is a 1* hotel at best, with a 3* price. The office staff were not present on arrival and an earlier phone call was not answered. After pushing a white (dirty gray) button on a remote receiver the office staff arrived. The woman was brusque and acted as though we interrupted her. She gave us a key and told us the wireless password. The room is old and dated from the carpet to the bathroom. It took a while for the water to run hot. The towels are thin and worn. The beds are old, uncomfortable and squeaky. The towel rack fell off the wall in the bathroom. The dead bolt is a thin bar that was hard to slide into the end. It didn’t make us feel safe. We stayed in a room with a kitchenette to prepare breakfast. The microwave and refrigerator and toaster all worked, though there were only two receptacles. We never used the TV or outdoor amenities. The room was generally quiet. You only heard a bit of street noise and the people next door when they left early one morning. A redeeming factor is its close proximity (2 miles) from the Acadia National Park Hulls Cove entrance. I was swayed by the positive reviews and wonder if those reviewers stayed at the same place.…
Once we got to our room it smelled musty, cobwebs on the lamps and the small refrigerator was very loud, had to unplug it to listen to the television and sleep. Reported problems to the staff and was told that they could do nothing about it until tomorrow. That was unsatisfactory since we were only staying for one night.
Good - Location close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Found great price when I booked. Service personnel were very friendly and provided daily service despite Covid. Room clean and comfortable. Bathtub/shower with good hot water. Good heat/AC. Room was quiet. WiFi was fine even near the end of the motel. Coffee machine with coffee, fridge, and microwave. Disliked · Just little annoyances. No sink stopper. A bit of peeling paint on sink top. Heat difficult to control with thermostat (but plentiful). Carpet was a bit old and worn.
The room was clean and tidy. The towel holder in the bathroom was broken off the wall, and the room was outdated. The beds were not comfortable. The location was convenient to Bar Harbor, and it was quiet.
