High Seas Motel
Ranked #20 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2017

We love this place and will keep coming back again and again. This is our home away from home. The owners are so nice, and it's nice to know they care about our comfort. They know us by name, and they take the time to chat with us. They will do anything to help you, including telling you where you can park in Bar Harbor, how to get around, etc. They are so helpful and so nice. The rooms are clean and have a nice size flat screen tv, roomy bathroom with hair dryer, clean comfortable bed, chairs and table, night tables, and a great outdoor pool. It's a really pretty place and maintained very well. Mini-golf is diagonally across the street, and an ice cream and BBQ place are next door (ignore the other restaurant except for the gift shop -- see my review of that). We had a room with outdoor table, chairs and an umbrella. If you want the porch with the table, you should request that specifically. No need for breakfast that you aren't going to eat there anyway so we are grateful there's no continental breakfast there. We are always rushing out early to catch a boat, so it's nice to not have to pay for a continental breakfast we won't eat. There are plenty of places in Bar Habor where you can go to get something, and there's a general store not too far down the road. Our home away from home! Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: If you want the rooms with the porch, chairs, table and umbrella, make sure to request it

Front desk staff super professional, courteous and helpful - explained detours due to road construction... spacious room (I had Room #14) was perfect - clean, quiet, good strong shower and plenty of hot water... really comfortable king size bed, refrigerator, tv and phone in room, table and chairs, parking spot right at room door, ice cold air conditioning, no complaints at all! I didn't get to use the pool but it looked really nice, huge vending room with tables & chairs with free hot coffee & tea in the morning... beautiful area to just sit out front and breathe the crisp Maine air!

Friendly and helpful staff. Spacious room and very clean. Convenient parking right outside room. Great breakfast across road at Log Cabin restaurant. Fair way from central Bar Harbour due to detour on highway.

My room was very clean and nicely made up. I really enjoyed staying here. I checked in late and the man at the front desk stayed open until a little after 10, so I was able to check in. Very nice staff.

We really enjoyed our stay at the High Seas. The room was nice and we could park right outside the door. The only complaint was that the heat was cranky, but eventually worked. There was no breakfast, but there was a lovely room with tables and fresh coffee every morning. There was a pool that we never used and picnic tables which we did.
