Robbins motel was extremely friendly and convenient for our needs. Away from the congestion in Bar Harbor but easy to get to places. Room had everything we need. Extremely hot water as soon as you turned on the shower. Bed was comfortable and Wi-Fi was good. Would stay there again. Fran

Stayed here five nights in October. I booked months in advance at $55 a night. Given that price vs what other hotels were charging I have no complaints. It was clean. The bed was comfortable. Cable TV worked and even the wifi was half decent. They come right out and make it very clear on their website that it is...

I got off on the wrong foot with a problem about our prepayment not being credited. Luckily I brought my receipt. Then we went to our room which was an old converted House trailer. Walking up to the door made me a little nervous about the inside. We had a bed with a towel animal on it and 2 plastic...

Very rudimentary lodging at a reasonable price. Small room, small bathroom, no coffee/fridge/microwave in room. Bed was comfortable. Wall light over bed did not work, motel staff were informed, but did not get it fixed before we departed. We had room 30; much road noise a bit disturbing. Reception staff not very friendly; asked them about local restaurant/movie houses, did...

We don't like to spend a lot of money on a place to sleep for the night and seek low cost, no frills places. This motel was the smallest room amd least thrills we've experienced.
