The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. This is an old-style motel like those I stayed in with my parents on family vacations in the 1950s and 1960s. The rooms are small and simple, but adequate. The rooms and grounds were kept clean and well maintained. The nightly bonfire was very nice, as were the chairs outside of...

Room was small but very clean. It is good budget place to stay near to Acadia national park. Room heater was not automatic so I had to adjust the temperature manually everytime. It is a decent place to stay.

Was only visiting for 5 days so I opted for a motel rather than a rental and I was not disappointed. It was basic and more then a bit cramped for space but I was there only to sleep and it worked just fine. Check in was a breeze and clerk most helpful. Rooms clean and neat. Bed was comfortable...

This is kind of a classic older Motel which has been fixed up in mint condition. Rooms are small, but very clean. They have a beautiful pool and play area for kids. First night they had a bonfire for the guest. Owners are very friendly and helpful.

Horrible spot. Musty smell in the room hat invades your belongings. Room measures 10x9 with bath equally small. Little to recommend since little was provided. If cost is paramount, try White Birches a few miles away and far, far superior for similar cost.

This hotel was fine for the price. It has a great location, close to Acadia entrance and Bar Harbor. The room was kept clean and recently painted but at this price point, you can't expect much. You could see light from around the door, so air was coming in quickly (it was my first hint that this place does not...

Bell Isle has a great location about 15 minutes to the entrance of Acadia and 20 minutes to downtown Bar Harbor. It is out of the sometimes overcrowded area of downtown Bar Harbor but close to all you need. The rooms are basic but clean and spacious. The hotel staff was friendly and the price was great. One note -...

We stayed four nights at Belle Isle while visiting Acadia and Bar Harbor area. From calling and talking with the owner and asking questions, to booking a reservation to check in, it was a delight. The owners are right there to meet, greet, and make sure your stay is most pleasant and accommodating. They also have the help of another...

Read the reviews and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful hotel if you are looking for a clean and friendly place to stay. Really enjoyed the camp fire each night and the great people we met there.

The small rooms here provided high value sleeping quarters for our Acadia adventures. Rooms are small, tidy and have the necessities. Access to the National Park and Bar Harbor is good. C-Rays Lobster is next door.
