We stayed two nights at the Robbins Motel. The price of the room was inexpensive. The room was small, but clean. The bed was clean and comfortable and the TV worked. We were gone the entire day and didn't return to the room until night. Very quirky place.

We stayed 2 nights on our visit to Bar Harbor, Had I not already booked ahead we would have gone to another location. The people were so nice but the motel room was very dated. Sometimes the low price is not worth the stay. The shower was just o k.

I chose this accommodation based on the reviews here, but I was not impressed. Stayed here 3 nights in September. My TV remote did not work even when I replaced the batteries. Staff was not able to help. Upon arrival I noticed a wet stain in front of the bathroom, but only noticed it once I stepped in it with...

The Robbins Motel is an inexpensive motel, no frills, clean, with a nice staff. We stayed 5 nights ($69 per night) there in August 2016. Daily maid service. Comfortable bed, pillows, clean towels, and carpet. Quick heat and A/C. Somewhat cramped poorly lit bathroom with just a shower. Our room had a long "shelf desk" with a TV (decent cable...

Nice 1 night stay for the price. Everything was clean and convenient. We drove up right to our room. My only complaints were that there was a couple of lightbulbs that were out and that the office was closed till 8 AM and we could not get any coffee before that.

As others have said the place was indeed clean but rooms are small and a little dilapidated (our sink was parting company with the wall, the bathroom door came off its rails twice). Badly in need of investment (for example, lighter brighter decor to make rooms at least feel bigger, new TV sets with remotes) and better maintenance. On plus...

We choosed this hotel because of it's price and recommandation. We stayed here for 2 night. The room was very small and the bed was very bad. The motel needs a upgrade. The room was clean but the second day we had mouse in the room.

Upon check-in, there was no one at the office to greet us. We had to press a button to call someone. When that someone showed up 5 min later, we saw that we bothered her. Very cold and unhelpful. Attention to Booking.com users: They charge an extra 7% disguised under a certain Destination fee to have booked through Booking.com. I...

This is a great place to stay if you are 2 people on a budget who are looking for a simple, clean room. The place doesn't show very well from the outside, but inside the rooms are clean. Basic is the key word for this motel. If you are looking for a comfortable bed and a hot shower while traveling...

I've been wanting to get back to Acadia and Bar Harbor and chose the Robbins Motel off a recommendation from my cousin. I wanted a place to lay my head at night since I would be out in the park or town during the day. This fit the bill exactly. The rooms are clean and they do some nice touches...
