We have stayed here about four times - every time we have gone to Bar Harbor. It is clean, the people are friendly, and check-in was a breeze. After we got to our room the front desk called to make sure everything was satisfactory and to see if we needed anything. The property consists of several four-unit buildings, on a...

It is this kind of review that helps us become better. We have recycle bins for bottles and cans at two locations on the property and we have a bin to recycle cardboard. But your idea of including one for paper is a good one and we'll try to figure out how to best make that happen. We don't have...

I booked online and received confirmation right away. The next day someone called and confirmed our reservation, they were very nice. When we got there to check in, the reception people were very nice and helpful. Our room was clean and the beds were comfy. We had a balcony and could see down to the ocean which was very nice....

Thank you. Our first priority in hiring someone at any position is - "Are they a nice person?" This seems to be the most important trait necessary to work in hospitality and we've surrounded ourselves with nice people who do excellent work. Thank you for noticing and we look forward to your next visit.

We were pleasantly surprised with the lovely big room with plenty of drawers and hanging space. Large bed and nice bathroom. Coffee, tea, juices and fruit available 24/7 in dining room area. Breakfast was muffins, English muffins, toast, fruit and drinks which were constantly refreshed. The pool area was very nice and pool towels were available as soon as the...

Your very generous review gives us an opportunity to mention Jim A. who takes care of our grounds. We have 15 acres and Jim does and excellent job of keeping it all trimmed and neat looking. Kudos to him and thank you for noticing. We're glad you had a nice visit with us and we hope to see you again.

The Bar Harbor Motel was perfect for us. It is located just outside of downtown Bar Harbor. Perfect to get away from the crowds but close enough to walk to about 10 minutes. It is minutes away from one of the entrances to Acadia National Park. I loved the fact that we could access the carrage trails from behind the...

Wow! Thank you so much for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor for others to read. It really is a special property and your mention that we are having fun while working is a true testament to the staff here. They truly view their work here as more than a "job." They like each other, they enjoy what they do,...

I love this place. The staff here is very friendly. They have been great since the minute we pulled in. The room we got was big enough for our family of 6. The rooms are very clean and spacious. We used the walking trails to wear out the kiddos. There is a playground and pool here as well. We didn't...

we really enjoyed our visit to Bar Harbor Maine. The bar Harbor Motel was outstanding. Aaron and Harrison were a lot of fun. They made the visit. They were helpful and professional. The breakfast was great and hit the spot everyday. Grounds were beautiful. Truly wonderful. Recommend to families, couples or alone.

In addition to Aaron and Harrison being very good at their front desk jobs they also run a couple of on-site activities that we have during the season. Aaron hosts Trivia Night on Sundays and Thursdays. Families come and form teams and compete against other families with a prize going to the winner. It's a lot of fun and if...

We had a wonderful time in "Bar Harbor" Motel. The staff was very competent and super friendly. The room was spacious and spotless. We stayed there before and always enjoyed it (that was our 6th stay actually in this motel over the years.) We also loved its location: it is right near the Acadia National Park connector road. We would...

Thank you for the kind words. Your review also gives us an opportunity to discuss the wifi. In the past our system was antiquated and slow. Over the winter we completely redid the entire property and now believe that each and everyone room should have exceptional service.
