The staff at the Motel is wonderful. The breakfast was good. They had fruit and juices and bagels.... Everything was replenished quickly. It was a little far from the center of town to walk, even though we did one night. There was a path from the motel to walk into Acadia Park. We would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here with my family many years ago when the kids were little because the motel property is adjacent to Acadia's carriage paths and close to town. I remembered the Bar Harbor Motel being clean and pleasant with nice grounds. My wife and I returned last week without the kids for a long weekend. We were pleasantly surprised that... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We expected (hoped) a clean motel with a good location and not more. But everything from the beginning was top-plus. We could always park right outside our room. The room and the bathroom are certainly better than your average motel room. The king side bedroom was the better of all our New England trip!... More

The Bar Harbor Motel had clean, spacious rooms, good breakfast, snacks and drinks throughout the day, friendly staff, and a family friendly environment. For nature lovers, the back of the property connects to a walking trail that leads into Acadia National Park, but even if you don't go all the way to the park on foot, the trail is a... More

This is an economical, clean and comfortable place to stay in Bar Harbor. The rooms are spacious and well maintained and the staff are a credit to the hotel, helpful and welcoming.

Stayed one night at this motel. This is a nostalgic motor court type motel but clean and well maintained. The room was large, very clean, beds were comfortable.

We believe we are the only hotel in Bar Harbor serving chocolate chocolate chip muffins at breakfast. They have been a big hit since we started that four years ago and is now one of our signature items at breakfast. We're glad you enjoyed them and we look forward to seeing you again. More

We had a good time at this hotel. Breakfast was basic but well kept. Our room was a little dated but clean and quiet. Friendly and helpful front desk. It is close to downtown and easy to get in and out of. It was like 5 minutes to down or the park.

We stayed for 5 nights in a family room. The room was clean and spacious for 2+2 (and will fit also a family with more children). The bath room was a bit small, but overall we definitely enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was also very good.

We agree that the Bar Harbor Motel is "Great for families." Our park-like 15 acres of land for the kids to explore, our on site activities (including scavenger hunts, wiffle ball games, and badminton), our outdoor heated pool, and our family style rooms that sleep 6 all point to a dedication toward making families feel comfortable.
