The answer is two-fold. Established 40 years ago, our hotel has been run with the same goal, to rent every room every night. Our feeling is that if we rent all thirty rooms each night that means thirty people who might come back. If we charged more we might only rent half the rooms and only have the potential for half the repeat customers. Thus, we charge the prices we do to hopefully make some money today and tomorrow. Second, the rooms and motel are as advertised, nothing fancy with a premium on clean, good linens, hot water, and a television, heater, and a.c. that work.

The rooms only have one queen-sized bed. Because of this we limit the number of people to a room to two regardless of age. If your party includes more than two people you are more than welcome to get multiple rooms. And, to be honest, at our prices you can get two or three rooms here for what it might cost you for one room at other hotels in Bar Harbor.

Because the motel was built over a number of years I have several different sizes of rooms. But the simplest answer is they are all small. If you are active during the day and just want a clean room to come back to then I may be the place for you. If you want to lounge in the room all day, then I suggest you look elsewhere. The rooms are small and simply furnished.

We are two miles from the main entrance to Acadia National Park and four miles to downtown Bar Harbor.


Of course, they all have a private bath.

Weather in Bar Harbor can vary significantly from year to year.  We recommend checking out Weather Underground’s trip planner here to see what the weather may be like for your vacation.
