Fair. Beds comfortable, place clean, not much else for the fairly high price Would have been ok if less cost. Our neighboring room was noisy and the coffee pot didn't work Would go there again if price was lower, but we were there around Foliage season .

We were very happy to make this our base for exploring Acadia National Park. The room was clean and comfortable, as was the pool. The staff were helpful. Having ice available was a nice benefit. All in all, very good place to stay.

We booked one night at this old school motel during our recent trip to Bar Harbor. It is a 5 to 7 minute drive to down town and the Acadia National Park. We parked right in front of our unit and the room was clean and adequate for our needs. The walls are a little thin and you can hear... More

This a nice traditional style motel. The rooms are fine and well aerated. Nothing fancy but clean and well maintained. It is situated right next door to restaurants where you can get a decent breakfast.

Stayed one night here. Basic lodging with the amenities you need. Clean and quiet. Staff was efficient and friendly. Location is very convenient to Bar Harbor and also Acadia National Park. The only negative for me was that the bed was too firm for my liking, but some may prefer this.

The room was very adequate, clean, good bed and pillows. It was just what we were looking as our time was spent in town or in the national park. The office staff were friendly and parking was super convenient.

Acadia Pines Motel was my 2nd. choice as my usual place was booked. I had always passed Acadia while traveling about in Bar Harbor for the past 30 years. It isn't the newest place, but it is a great place to stay. The rooms are basic and have excellent wi-fi signal strength, 17.74mb download according to the speed test app... More

King size mattress was hard as a rock, room always smelled musty, room decor is from the 80's, walls are paper thin, ice cubes full of white frost. The Price was the only thing good about our experience.

This is our 3rd year at Acadia Pines, and, like the previous years, we are well satisfied with our experience there. Rooms are clean--I mean very clean!--beds are comfortable and it's quiet as you relax or sleep. The staff and owners are pleasant. The grounds are pleasant and spacious. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a... More
