          We have stayed st the Harbor View with friends many times over the years, and think it is absolutely delightful. Don't come here if you're looking for marble floors and gold fixtures. The rooms and cabinets are well-furnished, clean, and basic. The view is lovely,...More

          Our stay in Southwest Harbor at the Harbor View Motel was a rustic, relaxing experience; quiet and as authentic as you can get on an island like this. Was the place a bit worn, the furnishings unintentionally retro? Yes! Was it clean? Yes! Did we...More

          Clean room, comfy bed, hot shower and breakfast all at a great price. You can't go wrong. We had a great stay! Far enough away from all the traffic and congestion of Bar Harbor yet a quick drive to the main points of the park.

          I guess my question would be why would you expect a guest to plunge the toilet? we were in the main building, the more "upscale" you have called it, but there was nothing upscale about the room at all. again, we loved the location, the view, the quietness, as I said.
