This little inn is low on frills and amenities, but high on many other things. The rooms were comfortable and clean (the place appears to have been recently updated), the location was fantastic (easy walking distance to the main drag and lots of restaurants just a couple blocks away), and the staff was amazing. They went out of their way, on their free time and looping in spouses, to help accomodate my sister and good friend's separate requests to suprise me on my 40th. Everyone was kind, enthusiastic, full of good recommendations and local advice, and genuinely interested in making sure their guests have a great stay.

No frills motel, it’s dated but in good shape. Wonderful staff. Very conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. Ample parking. 20 to 25 minutes from the national park.

Very clean and friendly staff. Location can’t be beat!

Love the 2 Queen Beds and a refrigerator in the room!

The location was perfect. The mini fridge was perfect for beverages. Definitely dated but you can tell they are upgrading. Easily walkable to main street and the waterfront. The listing states that they have soundproof rooms however, we could hear the tv next to us loud and clear. I missed not having a coffee maker in the room. Also, didnt love that someone tried to come in our room at 7:30 in the morning, unclear if it was the cleaning staff or not as they didn't respond to our asking who it was or apologized.

Friendly staff and nice location

Property was in good condition, seems like it was recently remodeled/painted. Great for a quick stay. Very close to Bar Harbor shops and restaurants, and a short (less than 5 min) drive to Acadia NP.

The staff was amazing! Like clock work! They'll even mail us the wallet they found on the parking lot! Thank you!

The motel advertised itself as it was - a dated, but conveniently located stay. There was an interesting aroma in the room of mildew and years gone by smoke, but the room itself was clean. Very limited electrical outlets for phone chargers and easy to hear neighbors move and walk around.

They advertised one price for a 4-person room, and then added an extra $10 for our 10 year old son - although were only a family of three.

Great location in Bar Harbor. Friendly and helpful staff. The furnishings could have a more functional layout; and power sockets more accessible to recharge phone. Overall an enjoyable stay.

I liked that you could bring dogs and they were very laid back about it. It was in a great location as well. Also, the bed was surprisingly very comfortable. However, There was a very strong smell in the room. Musty or something. The shower was terrible. It shut off about a minute in then turned back on at a low pressure that was freezing. The toilet took about 3 flushes to go down and the rooms were very dated. I wouldn’t have minded as much if the room was reasonably priced. I found $200 for that quality to be pretty steep.

The location of the motel was great, right in the heart of bar harbor and close to all the shops & restaurants. 10 minutes into Acadia. The rooms are extremely dated, they could put a little effort into the updates and really make a difference. The beds were comfortable but the sheets and bedding are so old, the sheets were as soft as sleeping with a newspaper. The bathroom was also very old but relatively clean. The shower curtain was this ugly tan color that looks disgusting when wet, another easy upgrade they could easily do. They had Pantene soaps which was nice, no conditioner though. Overall, we only stayed for one night and booked kind of last minute so we ended up here. Fine for the one night but would recommend many other places in town before coming back here. This place just needs a little love and it could be a lot nicer.

Old school motel with a nice lawn area and within walking distance to downtown. Satisfactory for the budget-minded. Creaky floors, can hear neighboring footprints but didn't have to endure any voices. Free coffee in office at 6:30 could start earlier.

This is a 1960s-style motel with clean but dated rooms. The staff was very helpful, and the location is great. Plenty of parking.

Expensive, uncomfortable, no breakfast, small room.

Good, well-managed, basic accommodations...nothing fancy. Pleasant, helpful staff. Great location for exploring the town and water front...10 minute walk. Easy access to Acadia National Park.

Thank you for staying with us, and we are glad that you enjoyed the upgrades that we are making to the property. Our cleaning staff has not yet arrived at 7:30 AM, so that certainly was not them. Regardless, we apologize for that disturbance.
