We stayed in the motel and our room (10) was huge, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The motel is only a couple of minutes away from the main part of the town. Staff seemed nice enough although we didn't encounter them much. I'd happily stay here again. Jordan's and The Thirsty Whale on Cottage St were awesome for breakfast and...

My stay was on the opening day of April, 2011. At check in I had to make a reservation change and that was done in a kind, professional manner with no further charge to me. Both of the ladies that I met at the front desk were wonderful and helpful. For a dinner recommendation I was directed to McKay's Public...

We had to change our reservations at the last minute and decided to try Moseley Cottage. While the accommodations were ok, nothing to write home about (we stayed at the motel), the male owner was a little obnoxious when asked where he would recommend to eat. He just went on and on about how he wouldn't eat at 85% of...

We stayed in the motel. The room was clean. Nice big king sized bed and great water pressure in the shower. The location could not be beat. You are within walking distance of just about everything in Bar Harbor. But the cottage is just off the main street so you don't get the noise from the downtown area.

We've stayed three nights at the Town Motel in Bar Harbor. We had two rooms in the Motel part. The rooms were clean, quiet and spacious. The staff is very friendly. The Motel right in the center of Bar Harbor in walking distance of shopping and dining opportunities.

This was our first stay at the Mosely Cottage and Town Motel. We stayed in the motel portion of the inn and our room on the second level was excellent - quiet, clean, and sufficiently roomy. The location of the motel was perfect - easy walking distance to downtown with no need to use our car. We will definitely use...

We stayed in the "Bubble" room which was huge. We had a big bathroom, big deck (can see a small, distant piece of the ocean), good fireplace with a quick light, paper wrapped log included each night. Very quaint, old style homes all over New England and this was a nice example. Very short walk to the shopping, dining and...

We stayed for three nights in the Moseley Cottage Inn in the Jordan Pond room. We were very impressed by every aspect of the service and felt it represented excellent value for money. The room was large, elegantly furnished and comfortable. The bathroom was rather small ( a function of the space limitations imposed by the conversion of the building)...

The Moseley Cottage and Town Motel was a very clean and comfortable place to stay. It had a very personal feel to it. We stayed in the motel part the first night then moved to a room in the house the second night. The employees were very nice and courteous. We ate breakfast the second morning and found it to...
