Comfort Inn Ellsworth - Bar Harbor
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Ellsworth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2011

Just like most Comfort Hotels, this one was a roll of the dice. Some are new and very well-appointed, others are older and despite updating, miss the mark. This property is clearly older, two floors with no elevator, and one very long musty hallway. Small and dated lobby, with spartan breakfast room. Our deluxe king room had an odd odor, a combination of carpet shampoo, musty, and telltale smoke. The bed had one of those old-fashioned bedspreads that likely is never washed. The average age at breakfast was at least 65. And even with AAA, it set me back $120. Front desk staff was friendly - in a Maine sort of way. Close enough to Acadia NP. If I had it to do again, I would have stayed at the Hampton Inn, which is brand new and also close to Ellsworth restaurants.

Hello I am so sorry to hear that you were not happy with your stay. Thank you for your comments so that we can make any needed improvements. I would like to say that we have completely renovated this hotel in 2010. Our entire facility is non smoking. There was new carpeting and tile in the breakfast room, public areas and guest rooms. We installed granite vanities in all the guest rooms and bought new furniture for our lobby. The bedding that is in the rooms is the current bedding requirement by Choice Hotels. I am excited to share with you that in the next year Choice Hotels is developing a new prototype and bedding standard and it will add to the look of our guest rooms. Again, thank you for your comments.
Eve Young, GM

My wife and I stayed at the Comfort Inn in Ellsworth for one evening. We chose the hotel after doing some research on TripAdvisor and looking for an economical hotel close to Acadia National Park. If you are looking for the same, this Comfort Inn is a great choice. The hotel is very nice and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were very welcoming and friendly. The hot breakfast in the morning was very nice and offered a large variety of breakfast foods for all tastes. Ellsworth is only about a 30 minute drive from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center at Acadia National Park; so provides a great jumping off spot for your trip there. And it is much more economical that hotels in the Bar Harbor area. We would definitely stay here again.

We got to town at 9:30 am and check in time is in the afternoon, but we wanted to find our hotel and see if by any chance our room was available. It wasn't, but the desk staff offered us the free continental breakfast even though we hadn't stayed the night before! She asked if we needed any help with finding our way to Bar Harbor and around Acadia National Park and was very helpful recommending restaurants. The room was very comfortable, clean, big, and very quiet! They have many options for breakfast (chocolate or blueberry waffles, yogurt, donuts, bagels, toast, cereal...etc.) We will defintely be back again; it is only about 20 mins to Bar Harbor and a lot less expensive that hotels there!

We found this place afer we had a bad experience at a B'n'B. I also had previously seen it very highly-rated on TripAdvisor. I never travel without a reservation so I didn't know if they would even have any rooms available much less for 10 nights. Fortunately we went there July 6 about a week before "High Tourism" season hit so we were 'in luck.' Hampton Inn is nearby and very highly-rated as well but more money so we choose Comfort Inn. We are SO GLAD we did. I have never seen such a Customer-Oriented hotel before! They cannot do enough for you and the ENTIRE STAFF is that way!!!! Add in a very comfortable room with 2 beds, microwave, refrigerator, a HOT breakfast with waffles, eggs, sausage, pastries, juices, coffee, toast, and more AND...an exercise room and a laundry room, and a FREE computer with Internet in the lobby and it was FANTASTIC! Also it is located near some very good restaurants, shopping (FANTASTIC RENY OUTLET STORE), and an easy drive to Bar Harbor. A slight billing error was corrected immediately, too. We'll definitely be back!!!!!! (One note: it is a 2-story building and there is no elevator so keep that in mind when booking a room. We stayed on the first floor.)
