We had a delightful stay at Knights Inn. The staff were warm, pleasant and helpful. The rooms - we had two - were spotless and in good condition. The decor is old, but I didn't see anything that was worn out. The smell of the rooms is similar to mothballs (I've smelled much worse in a Marriott Resort at 3x...

Good: Location, Price (compared to other hotels in Hancock/Bar Harbor), Front Desk Bad: Room/Service The photo of the property provide false hopes but location is very much accessible.

Great price on an older motor inn. Friendly staff close to the highway. No frills as we just wanted a place to stop and go, Thanks. I would stay there again if only sleeping and leaving. I would say, in todays terms, you get more than you pay for. Offered "walk-in" discounts. Greeted me by my name.

My family and I needed a cheap place to sleep while we spent time with family in the Ellsworth area. For a holiday weekend, the price was right. There are no fancy extras, just fairly decent rooms for a decent price. Our rooms were clean, and the bed linens fresh. The in-room coffee was gross, but what can you expect?...

Your basic average motel. The price was right and I'm just looking for a rest, a lock on the door, and a clean hot shower. In the morning they had only oj and coffee and the coffee was not so great. If I wanted something fancy I would pay more and get it but I don't need it.
