Large clean rooms which have had some updating. We spent several nights there as a base for exploring the National Park - it’s a good location for this. Near to the Park entrance but about 4 miles from the town. However the shuttle bus stopped for us as we stood outside (and dropped us back in the parking lot). Rich on the front desk was very helpful with good local information.
We were in Bar Harbor when Hurricane Dorian hit, and we gratefully stayed here an extra night. This is one of those reasonably priced, old fashioned motels where you can park right outside your room. The owner gave us great restaurant recommendations and local information. The room was very spick and span and very spacious. Seriously, the only thing lacking was a little microwave, but there was one available in a large common room in the center of all the buildings along with tea and coffee choices. It actually was very conveniently located since we mostly were interested in Mount Desert Island and Acadia. It really wasn't very far from Bar Harbor either, but way too many tourists for us there.
