The motel was comfortable and clean. The bed had a pillow top mattress cover which made it very relaxing to sleep in. The breakfast was good, many baked goods to choose from and lots of hot coffee. The motel is located at the edge of the town and makes it easy to walk on foot while exploring the area. The...

We had a great time and the staff was very nice and informative. The breakfast was delicious. The cottage room was nice with a fireplace and my wife and daughter loved the swing bench out our private porch. I defiantly stay here again.

My wife and recently stayed at this very quaint Victorian Inn. It was located just 2 blocks from downtown. The location is perfect for walking and exploring. The room was on the third floor which we were warned about so it was not a problem. The room was very comfortable, and clean. We had stayed at several places on our...

First of all, there's an "Inn," which is a B&B, and a Motel. We got the motel, not sure exactly how that worked out, maybe something we did when reserving. No big deal anyway, except the Inn comes with breakfast, and the Motel does not. The motel is a classic motel, with an exterior door facing the parking lot. Our...

Thank you for this review. We are sorry it did not meet your expectations. Sometimes when people book on booking.com they do not realize what they have booked. We have no control over that and try to warn people to really pay close attention to what they are booking. As far as noise goes sometimes you do hear people above...

We enjoyed our stay in Bar Harbor immensely, staying at the Town Motel. The motel is small (I think only 8 rooms), and we were fortunate to be on the ground floor so we didn't have to take suitcases up any stairs. We were able to park right in front of our room, which was convenient. The room was clean...

This place was fantastic. We stayed for three days in the Norumbega room. It was great and huge. There was a king bed, fireplace, and great private porch. There's also another bed in there as well. It is a perfect location with about a minute walk to all of the shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor. The breakfast was fantastic...

We absolutely loved our stay at Moseley's. our king size bed was so comfortable, the room was great. Breakfast was delicious. The only detractor was early morning fog horns -- but then again we were in Bar Harbor!

Great place to stay! Nice room, great mattress. Down a quiet street, so no night noise. Breakfast was fabulousness, not your normal B&B breakfast. Staff were excellent with unlimited info about the area. Stay with them, you will not be disappointed :)
