Simply cannot say enough good things about this property. My wife and I stayed in Room 2 a week ago and thoroughly enjoy everything about the Highbrook and the Bowden family. As noted in other reviews, the room was very spacious, impeccably clean with a nice comfortable bed. The locale to Acadia NP is most convenient and I loved the...

Comfortable, impeccably maintained motel reminiscent of those you may have stayed in while on vacation with your parents in the 60's. Spacious rooms with somewhat dated decor but excellent value for Bar Harbor, especially for people on the go. The steelcut oatmeal or grab and go egg muffin sandwiches were perfect for those heading out for a day of hiking...

This motel is a wonderful value. It is conveniently located to Acadia National Park and all that Bar Harbor has to offer. The staff is incredible efficient and accommodating in both their electronic and in person communications. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and extremely clean, and the beds are comfortable. I would return and highly recommend.

Excellent value for money motel. It's a little old fashioned and quirky but it's spotlessly clean with lots of space, a seating area for enjoying breakfast and a separate sink area as well as the one in the bathroom which is useful, along with the large luggage storage area. The bed was huge and was the most comfortable of our...

This is a very well-kept 60's style motel with large immaculate rooms, very friendly and helpful staff and a quiet atmosphere. Book ahead as we never saw the "vacancy" sign appear; it is popular for good reason. And the rates are reasonable (for Bar Harbor) compared to other area lodges. They have a take-out breakfast which was wonderful with more...

Maine has delightful motels, the old-fashioned kind run by locals. The Highbrook Motel is one of those special places, but it is much better than you would imagine. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed, and the owners are attentive to details that you might find at high-end hotels. Breakfast is delicious and ample. What is not to like?

Absolutely love our time at the Highbrook! The only thing I regret is not staying here more than 2 nights. From booking, to check in, to our stay, we have so far enjoyed every minute! The staff when you check in is so helpful and so welcoming. The room is very cozy, and also very welcoming. Love the parking right...

The rooms were nice size. Beds comfortable and location was great for us. Right in the middle between the park and town. They have a simple breakfast to take to your room. It was a nice morning so we sat out in the chairs.

We booked this motel based on previous Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. While the motel is dated, the rooms were spacious and meticulously clean. Our king sized bed was extremely comfortable allowing for a restful nights sleep. The location was perfect, away from the noise of Bar Harbor, but close enough for a quick drive into town. The...

The accommodations at Highbrook were great. From the quiet....we were next to the drink cooler which shuts down at ten pm...room to the delicious grab-and-go breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful in suggesting points of interest. We would definitely stay there again if we get back to Bar Harbor. Judy M.
