The Anchorage Motel occupies the large in-town lot that once contained the famous St. Sauveur Hotel. Built in 1870 by John Clark and owned by Fred A Alley, it was consumed by fire in 1881 only to be rebuilt the following year. A contemporary guide book says the St. Sauveur “enjoyed the patronage of a very smart set of guests. Its location on Mount Desert Street, Bar Harbor’s most popular boulevard’ gave it distinction.”

Anchorage at Bar Harbor

The perfect location if you don't mind a 5 minute walk to downtown Bar Harbor. You do not have to deal with the downtown traffic or cruise ship walkers. We used our room to sleep in and change clothes to fit the weather. It is also really close by car to Acadia National Park which we spent two days hiking and biking. The room and location were perfect for what we did on our vacation.

Fabulous!

Spent four nights here during a vacation, and loved it! The location is ideal, a very quick walk to town -- no need to go find parking! The staff was wonderful, friendly, provided an umbrella, etc. The room was always very clean, shower had great water pressure (it's important!), even a newer t.v. I will definitely stay here again!!!!

Easy Bar Harbor Access

This motel is not a great place for a romantic weekend, but if you're only looking for a base to explore Bar Harbor and MDI then this is a great deal: inexpensive, clean, centrally located and free internet. Its also old, creaky and noisy if you have neighbors next door or above.

Great location!

It is very well located. If you are willing to be out exploring Bar Harbor, which is a beautiful town, you will be right in the center of all. You can walk to any place and enjoy everything the town has to offer. Staff is there for any question or need, but not more contact since it is a Motel kind of business. It was good staying there.

Great place...location, location, location

I've stayed here before in fact this is my 4th trip to bar harbor and have always stayed at the Anchorage. It is basic, but the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the location is Great. They have done some upgrades (re-paved the parking lot, and upgraded the bathrooms) but it is just clean simple and nice.

Lacking

Coffee in the lobby only, and no place to sit. No hair dryer in the room. Paid for the location.

Not a Three Star Hotel

This is a low 2 star hotel at best. The only saving grace is the location that is in walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor. Male Desk Staff were very unprofessional and not very friendly. We were disappointed with this hotel. We expected a three star hotel.

Good location for the cost

The Anchorage is located just around the corner from much more expensive B&B's, and turned out to be better than I expected based on the reviews I had read.

1960s motel quality

The location was great but the hotel was no frills. Like a motel from 1960. If the hotel quality is not a what makes your vacation the this is a good economical place.
