This property is about 30 minutes from Acadia. It’s ok considering the price and short stay.

I would not stay there again. It looks like owners, staff and their kids live in the same rooms on the property as guests. Staff people look like homeless (no kidding). I had some issues with the room, let the office know about it twice, noone addressed it properly. On the date we checked in with the office and went to see the room, some women opened our door with her keys without knocking. When she saw us she asked how we are doing and if everything is allright without saying sorry for intruding, then she closed the door. That was the moment we started to feel unsafe and be alert.

They gave me a room that hadn't been cleaned since the last guest. Got that fixed, but just in time as the desk closes at 8 PM. The desk person had no command authority so had to text her boss to be allowed to do what was obvious: give us a room that had been clean previously and for which they had learned the reservation was a no show. Our room was grungy. The bed had a sheet and bedspread but no blanket. Caveat emptor.

Not the cleanest but provided the basics. Picture on website were not the same as the actual room.

There was a soap dispenser which was empty so no amenities. It was suspose to be no smoking but reeked of smoke.

Would stay here again!

Contrary to recent negative reviews, our room was beautiful, clean, comfortable. Location in Ellsworth was a plus for us, Bar Harbor qas packed, crowded, noisy. Ellsworth was quute and we ate at three outstanding restaurants. Its a 2 star motel but a good one.

Central location. No soda machine was working, no ice maker was working and they forgot towels when they cleaned the room.

Clean, quiet, staff was very nice and helpful. I'd stay here again

Very clean. Quiet night’s sleep.

Room was clean and well-prepared. The cooking range kept blowing the circuit breaker.

The best thing about this property is that is pet friendly

Very nice views because the motel on top of the small hill, expecially sunset so beautiful. Clean room and comfy bed. Room have one small dine in table for having some foods. Have coffee machine with free coffee, hve microwave to make some foods when hungry, it is very good. Location is near everything restaurants and Walmart supermarket. Staffs is nice and friendly, is good for short stay with such a good price.

Good location. TV would not work. Maintenance had to call cable provider to fix it.

Price, location, and staff were great. We stayed 2 nights instead of the 1 night we planned because we really liked the spot.

We loved the view and low level of traffic. Would be nice to add a pool.
