This property looked fine based on the Travelocity photos, but this is a classic example of "caveat emptor." When we arrived, we were allowed to check in but were advised, "the rooms were not ready." This was fine. We headed out and returned several hours later. When I opened the door to my room, it had clearly not been serviced. The beds were unmade, it smelled of smoke, etc. I went to the office and the gentleman there put me in another room. On my way to the new room, a few guests decided to let their dogs give chase - which they thought was amusing. Obviously this property has no pet policy in force. Later, as my fellow traveler and I were in his room, a woman who should be the spokesperson for Marlboro just keyed into the room without knocking and confronted me on why I had switched rooms and said she would be moving my luggage into the original room which had obviously not been cleaned or properly serviced. She left and then came back a second time (at least she knocked the 2nd time) for some unknown reason. The whole experience was unsettling and we dared not leave our items in the room when we went to work the next day. Instead of staying for the second night, we left early and after the fact, the hotel overcharged my card and has yet to return my call to correct the issue. I travel a lot. I've stayed in a lot of different hotels and motels. This was by far one of the worst experiences I've had.

This is a very nice place but the maid came in, took her generous tip, left the trash, didnt make the bed, didnt touch the towels, and didnt replace the coffee.

Thank you for your review!

Late check-in was a breeze and the room was VERY clean. We were disappointed that the beds in our room were very soft and had been around awhile. The mattresses had waterproof coverings on them I'm guessing, as we were both a bit clammy all night. The location was great, not far from Acadia, and we had a good breakfast at Governor's in town after we left. My lower back is still bugging me though. I read in the other reviews that some of the rooms have been recently redone, there were painters there working when we left. If you need a firmer mattress, it might be a good idea to request that ahead of time.

Motel close to all activities

Pros: Close to everything
Cons: Improve the bathroom amenities
We stayed two nights in the motel, check in was a breeze, staff was very professional. The rooms were ok. The traffic noise was loud in the night.

Adequate place to stay, but close to the sites.

It was clean and comfortable, but small. Nice and close to Acadia National Park.
