High Seas Motel

Reviewed 11 October 2017

Having never visited Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park before, The High Seas Motel seemed like a a good place to call home for a couple of nights. We weren't disappointed. It is very close to the entrance to Acadia National Park and close to Bar Harbor. I was greeted by a very friendly staff who made us feel glad we chose their motel and was provided recommendations for restaurants. The room was spacious, very clean and had everything we needed. As this is an independent establishment, expect the individuality and relax (not a chain and a welcome change). We enjoyed the serenity of The High Seas Motel after a day of the bustle and crowds of Bar Harbor. There are restaurants close to the motel and in Bar Harbor or you can purchase breakfast items from the local grocery store. Coffee and tea is served in the common area which was appreciated.

We stayed three nights. Everything went well. The room was not large but it suited our needs. The bed was comfortable, the AC was good and very quiet, the shower was more than adequate, and the TV was larger than expected. The owners were very pleasant. The price was actually lower than a similar week last September. Construction was not an issue.

The High Seas Motel met what we wanted for a quick visit to Bar Harbor. The price was good - atleast for Bar Harbor, the room was clean and the staff of the family owned establishment were friendly. It sort of felt like being back 30 or 40 years ago - the lodging seemed a bit dated, but it was very clean and generally well maintained.

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.
