“Great Location, price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2011

This hotel is just 1 block from the Village Green, where the buses to Acadia National Park depart. The hotel is clean, the staff are knowledgable and friendly. This is not an upclass hotel, which is reflected in the lower price. If you are looking for a central location where you can walk to everything in Bar Harbor this is an excellent choice. We stayed for 3 days of biking in Acadia, and never started the car for those 3 days.

Room Tip: Book directly, the websites were $10 more per night.

We stayed 1 night end July 2011. The hotel is clean, complementary bathroom supplies, coffee/tea, staff is very helpfull and friendly. Perfect location, in the center and 2 minutes walk from the village green where the Island Explorer (Acadia park shuttle busses) depart from and there is a little swimming pool too.

This place has the same bedding as when my parents brought me here 25 yrs ago; it is extremely outdated; rooms were not very clean; and it is way overpriced for what it is. It maybe close to downtown but it would be worth it to pay the extra $$$ and stay in others that are just as close to downtown.

CaitlinMeredith, Manager at Bar Harbor Villager Motel, responded to this review, 16 August 2011
Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts on the Bar Harbor Villager Motel! I am sad to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Most of our guests find that the motel is just what they need - a clean, convenient, comfortable place to rest their head after exploring Acadia National Park. We have made many improvements and updates to the rooms over the past 2 years, including adding mini fridges, larger tvs, coffeemakers, hairdryers, clock radios, and iron/ironing board combos to the rooms. The rooms did not have these amenities 25 years ago. In terms of bedding, we replace the sheets and pillows frequently. While the patterns of the bedspreads might not be the most up-to-date, we continue to use them as long as they remain in good condition. We plan to continue gradually updating the rooms and property, and have many exciting changes planned for next year.

We stayed 3 nights at the Villager from August 10 thru 12. Great little place to stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms, convenient to town and buses. Nothing fancy but that was ok with us. Was nice having a refrigerator. Could not get internet to work on laptop but did go to the office and get them to print our boarding passes. My iphone worked fine "AT&T service".
