Never had this happen before - we went exploring Acadia for the day and did not want room service. When we returned, a large plastic bag with clean, fresh towels was hung of the outside door handle. Now that is something different. Tells a lot about the quality of service here. Was delighted by the size of the room about...

The room was ok and the bathroom was big. The bed linen was awful, nylon sheets and coverlet. Rooms on the front are noisy. Manager could be more friendly. No breakfast offered. Tv was good, Internet is weak .

The views from the rooms are not of the harbor at all. The motel sits on a highway inland so the pics are not to be trusted! Mold on caulking in bathroom. Lots of noise transfer from other rooms. Uncomfortable beds. Owner was terrible when we voiced our concerns at check out. He told us our complaint was the first...

Cindy, To clarify, any pics on our website of harbors are under the "Local Area" tab and we do not advertise that we are on the harbor. The concerns you voiced were regarding the attic access in your room and that you were worried that someone could break into your room from it. However, the only means to gain access...

This motel is not bad for an overnight stay. It's clean, quiet, right off rt 1 in Ellsworth. Beds were comfortable. The WiFi was iffy, TV is limited but we really didn't care about that. I'd stay again for a night if I were in the area.

We rode through Ellsworth to the white birches motel after traveling several hundred miles on route 95 headed for New Brunswick. Though we were greeted after a 15 minute change of shift conversation between employees, we found them to be pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and adequately appointed. Restaurants are plentiful in the Ellsworth area though not within...

If you are looking for inexpensive, clean, safe lodging, this is a good choice. It is a 30 minute drive to Bar Harbor and the park. No amenities really, but a terrific value. Just the very basics. Good enough.

We stayed here for one night as two families of three in two double rooms. The reception desk was very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. This was all we needed for a one night stay. Good value for money and perfect for a good night's rest.

This motel with a few tweaks could really be great. We booked a room with two double beds. After checking in, we went to our room, tired after all the driving and found it had a king. Didn't want to deal with the hassle of changing so we decided to make it work. (Other review indicated same issue, so you...

Jeanne, Thank you for your feedback. As new owners of the motel we love to hear from our guests on how we can improve upon the property and make their stays more enjoyable. We recently remodeled rooms and changed their bed classification types in the system, so this may have caused the mix up in your room type. Our apologies...

The room we had was good size. Our issues started when we turned the sheets down. The bottom sheet did not look like it had been changed , there were fresh stains on the sheets. As it was late, we slept on top of the blankets. The management did 'comp' us for the night. We got back later in the...
