We have stayed st the Harbor View with friends many times over the years, and think it is absolutely delightful. Don't come here if you're looking for marble floors and gold fixtures. The rooms and cabinets are well-furnished, clean, and basic. The view is lovely,...More
Our stay in Southwest Harbor at the Harbor View Motel was a rustic, relaxing experience; quiet and as authentic as you can get on an island like this. Was the place a bit worn, the furnishings unintentionally retro? Yes! Was it clean? Yes! Did we...More
Clean room, comfy bed, hot shower and breakfast all at a great price. You can't go wrong. We had a great stay! Far enough away from all the traffic and congestion of Bar Harbor yet a quick drive to the main points of the park.
This motel is situated in downtown Southwest harbor with beautiful ocean views. Although the hotel is dated, it is very clean and the staff is very friendly. It is dog friendly as well. We love coming back here and try to get back at least...More
Harbor View is located on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island. Located in a small town, there are several restaurants and shops within walking distance. What you get at Harbor View is the view. The motel looks out on the harbor, perfect for easy...More

Thank you for your review of the Harbor View Motel. You did a thorough job describing your experience, along with the pros and cons of the Harbor View. Your description of the cottages is a little misleading, because each cottage does have a view...More
I guess my question would be why would you expect a guest to plunge the toilet? we were in the main building, the more "upscale" you have called it, but there was nothing upscale about the room at all. again, we loved the location, the view, the quietness, as I said.

We don't expect anyone to plunge the toilet...I'm not sure the circumstances, but maybe the cleaning staff was unavailable or the front desk personnel could not leave the office. I'm certainly sorry for the inconvenience. I'm also sorry the room in the main building was not up to your standard, but I don't think you will find a quality room with a view like that, for such an affordable price anywhere else on Mount Desert Island. we are in the process of making significant upgraded , and would love for you to give us another try. Thank you for your concern.
