My husband and I had a great time at the Highbrook Motel!! Anna at the front desk was incredibly helpful upon check in and suggested a number of things that we could see and do in our short time in Bar Harbor. The room was spacious, a bit dated, but still charming. The complimentary breakfast had a great selection of...

We visited over the summer and found ourselves in the most quaint, quiet motel we could hope to find. We stayed in an annex higher up the hillside, which was lovely. The decor was simple and spacious. We were comfortable and found all furnishings and bedding clean and comfortable. The dressing room area appeared to have the original Formica countertops,...

Clean, comfortable room back by the woods. You can smell the pine trees if you leave the windows open at night. Friendly and welcoming staff. Great location, can easily grab the bus to go all over MDI. Awesome little egg sandwiches in the office to grab before your trip to Acadia. Highly recommended.

Both my wife and I loved the “throwback” look of the Highbrook Motel! For her, it was reminiscent of staying with a favorite aunt and for myself it brought fond memories of staying with my grandparents. Besides the nostalgia, the Highbrook Motel was very clean. The staff was both friendly & helpful. The Highbrook was located in a good location,...

such a beautiful motel with that 60s "motor lodge" feel. Park right outside your door and its like you're home. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Clean rooms with great water pressure in the showers. VERY good bacon egg sandwich hot breakfast along with bagels and coffee.

Stayed at the family run Highbrook Motel in Bar Harbor 3 nights in October .What a wonderfully run motel. Close to downtown, Acadia Part entrance and centrally located for traveling around Mount Desert Island in general. The staff at this motel could not be more generous with their assistance and terrific breakfast they provide in the mornings. Would love to...

Pull up to the front of this place and you begin to question the intelligence of your reservation. Don't. While this is not the Ritz Carlton, the combination of nice sized rooms (except the microscopic bathrooms), good, friendly, and caring management, excellent free breakfasts, and location near Acadia NP and downtown make this a valuable value-centric choice. If you are...

Large, clean room with very comfortable kingsize bed. Only 1 mi. to Acadia NP. Easy drive (bus in season) to downtown Bar Harbour. Good, convenient grab & go breakfast. Older property, but good value & would stay again.
