We have stayed here many times and we will continue to keep coming back. First off location. Nice downtown location in walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, harbor and ocean trails! Now that you have to pay for parking in Bar Harbor you can just leave your car parked at the hotel and save yourself the aggravation of looking for parking spots, fighting traffic and of course paying to park! While this is a older motel it is very clean and the rooms and beds are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rates are reasonable! One huge selling point for us is they are the only downtown lodging that allows pets. They have special pet friendly rooms and what is nice they actually have an area to walk your pets.

We stayed one night at the Anchorage motel. The motel is close to everything, and has great parking. We were able to walk to everything. It was clean and comfortable. Its a pretty standard hotel, but exactly what we needed when we decided to stay in town another night and most things were sold out.

Location, Location Location and the fact Anchorage takes dogs for a minimal fee and no hassle is the reason you may want to stay here. However, if you are looking for an upscale hotel this is not your place. You can hear the people above you and the interior is dated, but was clean. Front desk staff were friendly. There is also free parking which is at a premium in Bar Harbor.

We have been staying here for years and we will definitely be back again! Nice family run motel with in walking distance of everything Bar Harbor has to offer. Now with having to pay to park everywhere this is a big deal to be able to park your vehicle for free and just walk to all the restaurants, shops and harbor activities. Our room was clean and comfortable, the wifi worked great and they had a mini frig in the room. These rooms are not fancy but for the rate they are very nice rooms. If you want fancy you can pay $300 and up a night at other places. Another feature is they are pet friendly and have a nice area to walk your pet. If you are a pet owner this is a BIG DEAL because we have been coming to Bar Harbor for over 25 years now and this is the ONLY pet friendly motel in the downtown area. All the others are outside of town where you will have to drive and pay for parking. The owners and staff are friendly and like family when we come back year after year. If you are looking for a nice motel at a reasonable price in the town of Bar Harbor this is the place for you!

We stayed here recently on the second floor. The best part about this place is the location. Close to downtown. It is adequate to sleep and shower. Beds ok. Price is a little high for what it is. The biggest issue is the rooms need work. The upper level is sagging badly. The shower walls were falling off, at least in my room on second floor. The bath tub felt like it was on a big angle where you felt like you might slide. This is probably due to the fact the building is old and sagging. I would stay again because the price was less than anywhere else close to downtown. But I do know what I am getting. If this works for you, great. If not look for something more expensive.
