Hotel's Favourite

Was looking for a place that did cost over $300 night (2022) as we were only going to be at the place to sleep and head out the next day. This hotel met that criteria.

The other criteria was within a 30 min drive to MDI / Bar Harbor. This hotel met this criteria.

The other criteria was the hotel had to offer a free breakfast of some sort. We are not picky eaters, and breakfast does not need to be the highlight of the day. This is your usual brand hotel breakfast. Prefab, prepackaged, with some custom cooked selections. We know what we are getting. This hotel met this criteria.

The next criteria was the hotel needed to be clean, and appeared to be well maintained and kept in working order. This hotel met this criteria. I wish there was not a staffing shortage so that during the 2nd night we could have had some tidying up of the room- take away towels and bring in fresh ones, but I understand the strand many hotels are having with a shortage of staff, so we made do with making our own beds, and organizing the soiled towels as best we could.

The next criteria is the hotel staff cares or at a min gives the appearance that they care. This hotel met this criteria. On check-in day we got a good recommendation for a place for dinner that kept us from being frustrated with parking and searching for a place in busy downtown bar harbor.

With all of the above, we were very pleased with our stay.

My family and I have stayed at this property multiple times in the past few years. The hotel is always very clean, with a friendly staff, and plenty of parking. Located about a mile away from downtown Ellsworth, the hotel is in a great location to visit the town or Bar Harbor and Acadia park which are just a short drive away. There are also some great stores (LL Bean outlet, Reny's, etc.) and restaurant options nearby. I love the feel of the hotel and the artwork on the walls - all of the pictures are local places in Maine.

For this last stay, my mother and I were a bit nervous as it was the first trip for us during the pandemic. We had a bad experience at our hotel in Bangor so were incredibly pleased when we arrived at the Ellsworth Comfort Inn. At check-in we were given a little care package with a personalized chocolate bar and information on the continental breakfast. Breakfast sandwiches were available for guests to heat up in their rooms, along with fruit, cereal, muffins, pastries, etc. All of the towels and bath linens were wrapped in plastic bags and sealed with a cute little sticker so we knew they were clean. Masks were required at the time; however, I do not know if that is the case now. As usual, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Overall, we felt incredibly safe and comfortable, even given the pandemic status, while staying at the hotel.

Myself and a friend will be returning to the area next week and have already booked a few nights at this hotel. As usual, I am looking forward to our stay and am sure it will once again be a great choice.

It's been years since I've stayed at a Comfort Inn but we had an amazingly nice stay here - clean, comfortable, and friendly staff working here. We were on the first floor by the end with the door going to the parking which I pretty much did not like with the coming/going and slamming of the door from late at night to early in the morning.

The location is great because you're 30 minutes from entering Acadia NP but not paying Bar Harbor prices and driving in Bar Harbor traffic to get food or whatever.

A laundry room is available on the first floor near the front desk and was $2.00 for the washer and $2.00 for the dryer. This was the most expensive of all the stays in our 11 day trip. There was breakfast served, but I have a gluten allergy and was only able to eat fruit or get yogurt. We ended up going to a couple of local breakfast places instead.

I seldom ever give a Comfort Inn 5 stars even though I stay in them frequently because they allow my dog to stay at a reasonable fee. They are usually just your basic mid level hotel but occasionally they have outstanding personal or exceptionally clean comfortable rooms. This hotel had both. I loved the little added touch of live greenery in the room. The beds are a little on the soft side but better that than too firm. I also like the enclosed toilet and shower separate from the sink and that there was a grab bar in the toilet, great design for us older people! The hotel must have been full because the parking lot was but you wouldn’t know it because it was QUIET! They also do a good job of keeping the parking lot clean which must be a chore because I noticed more then a few quest leaving thrash and cigarette butts, come on people stop messing up our environment and put your thrash away. I heard a couple of guest complain about the price and thought you have to be kidding. Compared to other decent hotels in the area it was a bargain. When you go to an expensive tourist area like Bar Harbor you have to expect higher prices in the surrounding area. If you need to save a few bucks somewhere I recommend dining at Governors, I didn’t try it last year because I thought it was bargain basement but it was good food with good service. I also want to add if you are going to Cadillac Mountain be sure to make a reservation or you will be turned away which would be a shame.

The property is perfect for families or business travel. A two story building with inside hallways means you can park close by. The renovation in 2018 was well designed. The rooms are very functional with solid furniture. All surfaces were updated. They have stairs and elevator plus luggage carts. The in room toilet / shower is small, a leftover characteric of these properties. Housekeeping was excellent.

Front desk was helpful and worked quickly. Early morning breakfast is a medium assortment of items with you having to request a breakfast sandwich.

It was one of the reasonably priced options in the area. The hotel location is a little odd, being right next to a railroad track with oddly shaped parking. We did not experience any trains while we were there and the hotel was quiet and clean. We were offered chocolate chip cookies for our stay and that was very nice. We had an accessible room and it was very well appointed with lots of bathroom grab bars and room, even a shower chair was available. The breakfast was nice and included hot entrees. The bed was comfortable and the wi-fi strong.

We stayed 2 nights in this friendly and comfortable hotel just next to LL Bean and the nice bike/walking path. Our room was very comfortable and big, everything worked well, and we found the hotel to be very convenient for our stay visiting family in the area. There is plenty of parking, and we could walk to the LL Bean, and to the shopping center across the street (which has a very good Asian restaurant), as well as the lovely hiking trail. The managers were very nice and helpful, and allowed us to have a bike dropped off and later picked up by my sister for use during our stay. Breakfast was generous and with a very good selection of hot and cold things, juices, coffee, teas, etc. We also LOVED the adorable dog (Bearnaise mountain dog) who was sometimes strolling around the lobby. 😊 We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the area.

This is basically just a place to sleep. No frills, no amenities. Some of the staff were very friendly, some were obviously disgruntled. The location to things in and around Ellsworth was convenient, but it's a pretty long trek out to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The air conditioning unit in our room was broken and couldn't be adjusted. It seemed to come on randomly, so the room was quite hot and stuffy most of the time. I likely would not stay here again, but it wasn't a terrible experience.

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your recent stay at our hotel. All of our Air Conditioners have been replaced as of this week. We are about 20 min. away from Bar Harbor and Acadia National park and our lower rate than some of the Bar Harbor hotels reflects that. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and being a gold award winner with Choice Hotels. I'm sorry to hear that you would not come back. Eve Young, GM

This was a great property for the value and they did an excellent job at being Covid careful. The sleep quality was great and the stylish updated room was perfectly clean. A great option while staying in the Bar Harbor region with an added bonus of being right next door to an LL Bean outlet.

Hello there! Sounds like a fun school project! Let's say you have 40 students and there's 20 females and 20 males. You would need 20 rooms for the students because each room would have 2 beds. 10 rooms for the girls and 10 for the boys. The rate would depend on the time of year. Tonight it would cost you $165 per room or $3,300 before tax.
