Isleview Motel and Cottages

Reviewed 22 October 2017

We spent a couple of nights at the Isleview in a sweet little cabin, filled with touches that reminded us we were in Maine. The walls are knotty pine, the towels are a lovely blue and the comforters are nautical in design. It was warm and cozy with lovely Adirondack chairs out front where you could sit and enjoy a beverage in the evening. Grills out back make it possible to have your own little picnic, if you like. Checking in and out was easy and the rates were great! Additionally it is close, with easy access to Acadia National Park.

A simple motel, with nice and pleasent rooms. Though small, they are well organized and pleasent to stay in. It could have been a nice stay, except that it had no internet connection. In 2017 this is as bad as not having hot water. What was annoying is that it was known to manager, and not some mishap. I would recommend anyone booking to verify that that proper WIFI equipment was installed there.

The low rating I gave it belongs all to the WIFI.

Our main goal is the comfort of our guests. Our #1 and #2 responses from guests in ratings has been for cleanliness and a comfortable bed. Price comes in at #3. Every guest will have things that are more important to them and should book accordingly. You brought to my attention that you were having difficulty getting a WiFi connection, at which time I checked the system. The system showed the motel unit was inactive so I restarted it. You left for dinner and after restarting the unit I logged on and I could see that guests were logged into the motel WiFi and it was up and running. The next morning you came to the front desk screaming at me that you were going to leave me a "horrible horrible" review because Wifi is more important than a bathroom and you were never able to log on. I apologized because I didn't know what the problem was since everyone one else at the motel was logged on, I could see it! Perhaps in the future you should look for high end chain hotels that carry high speed WiFi.

Stay at the Isleview for 4 nights last week. Had a king motel room and it was very comfortable. Considering the price/night it suited our needs perfectly. Bed was comfortable, room was cleaned each day and the air conditioning worked fine. Granted the room was small but there was enough room for our suitcases, a plastic tub and carry on bags. The owner was very nice and she even knew where we were from as she had lived in our area before moving to Maine and purchasing the motel. It was close to Bar Harbor, Acadia and most anything you'd want to see. Great lobster place across the street and another down the road. We would definitely consider returning to Isleview should we be in the area again.

It took 15 minutes to get to Acadia, but for the price was perfect for us. Loved the knotty pine paneling, desk, rocking chairs and fact it had a mini kitchen are. On my wish list would have been a little freezer in the mini frig, for our ice, but other than that, it was nice to have a little frig, coffee make and microwave. The shower was a little off, but the room with two beds was a nice size. The big plus, both my sister and I found these to be the most comfortable beds and softest blankets of our trip. We slept really, really well. Very convenient to have parking right next to the cottages. I do wish they had a rail on one side of the front door, on the outside, for those of us with mobility issues, but other then that, it was a very nice place to stay in and very clean.

Room Tip: Cottage #2 was a good choice

We were delayed getting there and arrived after the office closed and could not see the whole property. The individual cottages looked nice. We stayed in the motel units. The staff was great and left us a key and instructions in their after hour box. The showers and and accommodations were great and clean. The only small glitch was the heater/AC. A little noisy, but after I figured out the unit, it was fine.
