I had to cancel my reservation. They will not allow parents with very young children to stay. I'm leaving a neutral review because 1. We did not actually stay here, 2. Some people may like a child free motel, 3. Just want to share the info as fairly as possible. I did not see their 'strict maximum occupancy' policy till...

If you like charming, clean, family owned and operated, and a great value very close to Acadia and Bar Harbor - this is the place for you. If you are not into 'motels' (aka parking right in front of your door, etc) or you need super modern and trendy then this might not be for you. We made reservations directly...

Good value for the money is the distinction of this motel. The location is fairly convenient--not too far from downtown Bar Harbor nor to Acadia National Park, even though the motel isn't walking distance to anything except the bayside campus of the College of the Atlantic across the street. We worried that our hillside room (#1) overlooking Eden Street would...

I stayed here during the weekend of the Mount Desert Island Marathon and enjoyed my stay very much. The property is family owned and run and their hospitality was welcome after my 7 hour drive to MDI. My room was in the upper level (up the road) but very close to the office. My room was spacious, clean and very...

A true throwback that was spotless and well-maintained. Super friendly staff and a good location (it's a little far to walk to downtown, but manageable). I loved the front porche and the Formica bathroom counter! Screen doors were also a great touch. Generous breakfast included. Overall, staying here felt that not only were you on vacation, but you were on...

This beautifully cared for motel from the 50s was excellent! Our room was huge with a king size bed and dining area, plus there was a breakfast bar in the lobby that was amazing! Containers for everything so you could take it all with you! The hosts were wonderful and helpful and it was a great Maine experience! Also extremely...

My husband and I do a lot of traveling. My husband booked Highbrook Motel. We were in town for a marathon. From the welcome to the good-bye the staff was warm and friendly. The room was lovely. I felt that everything was super clean and welcoming. I tried to leave the room as nice as I first walked into it....

We recently visited Bar Harbor and stayed at the Highbrook Motel based on other Tripadvisor reviews. The Highbrook is a 60's-modern motel, so well cared for that I felt like we were stepping back in time to the day it was built. Our room was huge with a king-size bed, dressing area with an ironing board and mini-fridge, a flat...

We were very pleased with our stay. Although the motel is dated, our room was extremely clean and the bathroom was even updated with a retro look. Our room was very spacious (king size bed with sitting area). The grab n go breakfast was great! The front desk staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. One morning we were going to...

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor. We chose this motel because of their reviews. We spent six wonderful nights here in mid-October and couldn't have been more pleased. It's a simple motel with five stars in comfort, cleanliness, friendliness and location. Their grab-and-go breakfast is great and their hot apple cider in the evening a delicious treat. The...
