We just loved this motel. The price was fantastic, the front desk clerk was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The room was spotless....everything looked like it was brand new. Very quiet when we were there which is surprising since it was the July 4th weekend. We would definitely come back!

Sometimes all that matters is that it's clean. The room was clean and roomy. Maybe the carpet was newer. Sometimes you would appreciate a little more, though. They have implemented some money saving features like coffee in the lobby instead of the room, shampoo in a shower dispenser rather than little bottles on the counter, and minimal decor. It was...

First, the good: almost everything. Staff is friendly, laundry room came in handy, cute little room with vending machines and microwave to sit and have a snack, and the rooms and grounds are very clean and well kept. And the location was great. Unfortunately, the design of the bathroom became frustrating after 3 nights here. It is a common motel...

This was a very small motel, but very nice rooms. No breakfast. When we were there, it was cool out, and the room (especially the bathroom floor) was cold. There was a heater in the room, but it took a while to heat the room up. No fault of the owner's; I'm sure their open season does not see cool...

Awesome - 4th of July ---The High Seas Motel helped make it that way ---It was clean and our room was ready as soon as we arrived in Bar Harbor. It is located about 4 miles from the actual harbor which makes it nice to have a very quiet atmosphere. They have a nice sitting area under the trees where...

Stayed here on a trip to Acadia and loved it. As a light sleeper, I heard a little bit of traffic from the highway but after asking if I could switch rooms from up front facing the highway to any other room, the nights were much better. The people in the office were kind, fun, welcoming, and helpful. Had to...

We stayed here for one night while touring the national park. Our room was nice and clean, in fact it looked to be recently remodeled. The grounds were well maintained. Water pressure was great, with lots of hot water. WiFi worked good. I liked it here and would stay again. For the price i was pleased.

We arrived in Bar Harbor on Sunday of Labor Day weekend. I never dreamed we would find a place to stay. Not only did they have a room available but, it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The rooms were quiet. You didn't even know you had neighbors and it was a busy holiday weekend. The staff suggested...

Room was roomy, very nice and clean. Staff very friendly and eager to please. One drawback was the lack of a microwave. In order to reheat anything you had to go around the back of the building to the "common" area. OK if it the weather is good. There is a hefty fine too if you try to do any...
