This motel was impeccably clean and the room we had was a great size. It was located in a quiet area but was easy to get in to town in spite of all the road construction. If you want a snack remember to get it before the office closes! The vending machines are in the office area. The office staff graciously provided us with a map to help navigate the area and it was a huge help.

We enjoyed our week stay. Quaint motel, clean and our room was recently remodeled. Perfect for what we needed, a place to sleep. The pool looked nice and we had a patio table and chairs right outside our door. We did have to walk to the snack room to get coffee, but it was right around the corner from our room and luckily the weather was good. The managers were great and very helpful. There was not decaf coffee in the snack room but we didn't ask if it was available.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the 2-person room with the patio table and chairs and it was near the snack room.

Very clean, spacious rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Weren't sure what to expect with it being an older establishment but the reviews were good so we booked the last room available. The gentleman that checked us in was super friendly, had great advice on where to eat and also provided us with a map on how to get through the road construction taking place just before you get into downtown Bar Harbor. The only con to staying here: walls are older and thin so if there is an inconsiderate, noisy family in the room next door you'll hear everything! Would definitely stay here again, in fact we tried to book 2 more days but they were full!

We stayed here for two nights. It is quite and clear. It is good and it is convenient to Acadia National Park and also near the bar harbor town. Front desk gave us a lot of information about the road to the park and the whether. It is a nice stay there.

Family owned and run. The owners were very friendly, and helpful. They take pride in their motel, and it shows! Rooms were very clean. The outside grounds were very nice. The complimentary coffee/tea served in the lounge/vending area, was very nice. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance. Great location. Parking right outside your room. We traveled with some friends on our motorcycles. When we came out of our rooms in the morning, there were towels left on our bikes, for wiping them down. Thought this was very thoughtful of the staff. Just one of those really nice little extra touches that make a difference. Would definitely recommend this motel!
Only two things could have made this perfect... One, no road construction. But, that is out of their control. I do understand the need to take care of roads. Just stinks when you're traveling on motorcycles, in an unfamiliar area. Once the town finishes that project, it will be very nice! The owner did help us with a shortcut back to the motel. And, two, a continental breakfast =). But, we did appreciate the coffee & tea!
