“Isleview Motel & Cottages, nice for the price”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

The Isleview Motel & Cottages is located in Trenton, Maine, very close to Bar Harbor. The Isleview is a small locally owned business. They keep the property in good shape and the rooms are always clean. Yes, they are small rooms and cottages, but nice. We actually stayed in the motel portion of the Isleview and thought the rate was super and the place very nice.

This is a very good location. It is a short drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. There are several VERY good Lobster Pounds around the motel. Our favorite was the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. Lots of good local places in the area, away from the crazy crowds in downtown Bar Harbor.

We do intend to return next year.

We arrived to a gruff welcome, but the owner warmed up a little when we asked where the best lobster was to be found. She suggested 3 places and we went to her first choice right across the street. It was excellent! We wish we could say as much for the room which stank from over use of "carpet fresh". The motel room on the end closest to the cabins was beat up and in desperate need of a remodel. No heat, no air conditioning, just a stifling smell with no way to open windows which were painted shut. Continental breakfast was all but nonexistent: a bagel, coffee and juice. We had just stayed in a lovely B & B in Calais,ME with a deluxe breakfast for less! This was the low point of our week in Maine. Avoid this spot!

isleviewcottages, Owner at Isleview Motel and Cottages, responded to this review, 24 August 2011
We are currently trying to upgrade our rooms to the best of our financial ability as we are a family run business and what little profit we make goes right back into the property. The room you stayed in was upgraded with brand new mattresses two weeks before your arrival plus this year we added a 32" flat screen tv and a new refrigerator. Your room did indeed have an air conditioner, it is attached to the wall. It is unfair to future customers to state there is not one in the room. If you needed instructions on the use of it, you should have asked the front desk. The motel room you were in also has two windows that open out, you have to open the window lock and use the crank to open them up. Our continental breakfast consists of bagels w/cream cheese, toast, muffins, coffee & juice. Our breakfast is listed on our website and on our reservation page, we cannot offer the type of food typical of a bed and breakfast because it requires a different license.

My wife and I enjoyed our one-night stay at this cottage. we stayed there in May but the weather was so cold that we had to turn on the heater. All in all, the place is well-kept (well obviously it is a family-run business) and equipped with every single thing the guest needs. Yes, the cottage room (I am talking about the one-room cottage) is small but it is cozy and comfortable. Their breakfast is also nice and tasty.

I was a little worried staying there since this property is not AAA approved. I need not worry. It was quaint, clean and a great location. The staff was friendly as well and offered a small continental breakfast too. Also, if you want to eat some lobster while in the Bar Harbor area, there are three lobster shacks very nearby.

Really very small (cottage number 3). We stayed here 3 nights.
Moisy. Shower minus average, Bed very good. Breakfast poor.
For the price it was almost oke. Restaurants in this area mediocre.
So we stayed for dinner in Harbor, nice enviremont and good food.

Room Tip: Breakdown and build bigger cottages (number 3 is really poor)
