“Great deal!”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

For our three day stay we chose the 3 night package offered by Villager Motel. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. And they were so gracious to help us get information about home on the VA earthquake (30 mi. from epicenter) when our wi-fy connection didn't work. The room was more than adequate for our stay--as per our requirements--a comfortable, quiet, and clean room to sleep and shower--we parked our car and walked the enjoyable town. The meals at the Reading Room Restaurant were delectable. Our sail on the Margaret Todd (mared only by the news of the VA earthquake) was great fun. I would recommend this motel and it's packages.

This is our second year in a row that we've stayed at the Bar Harbor Villager Motel. We like the convenience of being close enough to walk to the Pier, Shops and Restaurants after a long day in Acadia. The rooms are clean, service is great and most of the staff is friendly and helpful. We were however, extremely disappointed, as last year they gave us a deal on a 4 night stay... and this year we stayed 7 nights, and they never even offered a discount or "package savings" for our room...plus the price went up $30.00 a night...Hmmm??? Unless the Bar Harbor Villager Motel changes their policy we will be looking for different hotel/motel next year. After shopping around we have found that most places are considerate and offer some type of discount or package deal.

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This place has the same bedding as when my parents brought me here 25 yrs ago; it is extremely outdated; rooms were not very clean; and it is way overpriced for what it is.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.
