So this is a very good place to stay if you are not a hotel snob. The people working at the colonial are very, very nice and helpful. The property is very clean and the staff are trying really hard to provide good service. The property is dated, that is true. The bathrooms are very small. But it is clean and well kept. A/c kept the room cool. The breakfast is a cold breakfast ( no hot food) but if you are a normal person then you can find anything for breakfast to take with you that would need. A wide variety of packaged foods. If you are looking for a clean, economical, safe place to stay near Arcadia (easy 15 - 20 minute drive to arcadia) and you can live with slightly worn facilities then I highly recommend.

Way overpriced for what it was (you pay for the location) but the room was clean and the staff friendly. My bf is in a wheelchair and the ADA-compliant room was just what we needed. Only a 25 min ride to Hull Cove visitor center, not much traffic during our back-and-forth (end of July). Would recommend as a relatively economical option for a Bar Harbor/Acadia vacation.

This turned out to be a very nice fit for my family. Our room had three queen beds plus a futon couch, full kitchen and bath and a half. Although this is an older facility, they have put effort into updating the rooms. Everything in this area is somewhat expensive, but being around 20 minutes outside of Acadia/Bar Harbor area, it came with a lower price. With the kitchen, we were able to save a bit more money by being able to eat our meals in our room.

I booked a last minute trip to Acadia National Park and this was one of the few places with availability. The hotel is old and worn. The reception is basic and I did not see any elevator so we carried our bags up a stairway with dirty and worn carpet into a hallway that smelled like mildew and faintly like old cigarettes. We almost left at that point, but it was high season in Acadia so it would be very difficult to find another place. The positive - our room was spacious enough, the mattress, pillows and sheets appeared to be newer, plus the price was relatively reasonable for the area, and it is a short drive to Acadia National Park (maybe 30 minutes with some traffic). But, overall the room felt old and neglected - the carpet was worn and looked dirty, the shower had mildew, the water pressure was poor and the water temperature ran either hot or cold, and the dresser was battered looking with a broken handle, and the outlet above the nightstand was loose, so the charger kept falling out. I could go on. Let’s just say, if you have other options I’d look elsewhere.

We stayed for 4 nights recently. The staff was very accommodating, even printing out online tickets for us for Acadia National Parl(needed hard copy to post on car dashboard) since we had no printing capability, The Inn is pet friendly and the surcharge for three dogs was only $10.00 per pet each night. The room was clean and spacious. We did have an issue with the shower fixtures, but the staff fixed the problem immediately and were very apologetic for the inconvenience(which was very minor). Great locatuon - close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We appreciate being able to travel with three dogs because of lodgings like the Inn that provide us an affordable and comfortable room for us and our pets. We also try to reciprocate by following their guidelines amd pet policies by being responsible pet owners and working to keep our pets' "carbon(and plain old dirty) pawprints" to a mimimum, Always remember that many facilities stop offering pet options because of damages to their rooms by unruly pets and their careless owners. This makes it harder for all of us to travel with our fur families. Thanks again to the Inn and their staff.

The was a wonderful place to stay. Our room was in back and it was protected from the noise on the road to Bar Harbor. There’s a very good Thai restaurant next door.
But about the Inn. First contact was with Irving, and he knows his customer service! He showed us to our large ground floor double room (a friend went with to help my senile dog), floors are the new vinyl and a little slippery but she managed.. We opened the sliding glass doors, one of us drove the air around to the back, parked and we proceeded to unload the car from there. One of us took Tess on the lovely dog walk. There is a nice picnic area out back and even a horse shoe pitch.
The beds are very comfortable. The linens good. Bathroom is very small, but workable as the sink is outside the room with toilet and shower. Nice amenities provided. Yes there’s a fridge.
Spoiler alert! It’s not the Ritz. But it is clean clean clean and comfortable, and convenient. This seasoned traveler highly recommends!

Location was great! Staff super friendly. The night manager was informative and we all had a great time talking to him and learning about Maine and local attractions. We stayed in the apartment suite, it had enough room for the 4 of us to move freely without being cramped. Breakfast was grab and go but plenty of choices between food and drinks. Laundry facility in hotel was great. The only complaint we had was the tub was rather slippery . We had to purchase a mat for the tub at Walmart around the corner. Food options in the area were good. Overall we give this location for travelers a 5 star rating for location, cleanliness, hospitality and variety of room choices.

One word. Filthy. We stayed long enough to put our luggage on the bed because the carpet was too filthy and gross. We left the room because of the musty odor and got in our car. We called the motel and politely asked if we could get a refund because we weren’t happy with the conditions. The young man at the desk was very helpful and polite and said he would make an exception and give a full refund. When I got to the desk, the owner/manager started talking rudely to me, saying he was going to lose money when clearly it was stated that there was a no refund policy. He finally agreed to only charge me for one night to cover cleaning costs. I told him he might want to start with the sofa. Take my advice. Sleep in your car before paying over $200 a night for this fleabag.

This may be the worst motel I've stayed at in decades. The pool was closed until further notice. Breakfast was Pop-Tarts and plastic containers of peaches. There wasn't a single hook in the bathroom or unit to hang a towel. Although the temps were near freezing, the building was so warm that we had to run the a/c. Worst of all, the only exterior light came from a sliding door that led to a public stairway. The cost? A mere $600 for three nights. Ouch!
