We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was recently renovated and very clean. We had a spacious room with two queen beds. The bedding was crispy clean and new comforters instead of usual worn blankets was an unexpected gift. The bathroom was tiny with no self space, but very clean. There is a little refrigerator in the room and continental breakfast is included (Chobani yogurt, blueberry muffins, oatmeal, cereal, etc.). Service is OK and parking is plentiful. To have breakfast on the balcony was blissful. The view of the bay at sunrise and sunset is truly stunning. It would be nice though to have a little table on the balcony or in the room. For some reason many other reviews mention Acadia Pines Motel (horrible!!!), which had no association with Acadia Oceanside Hotel. These negative reviews are not relevant as they are about totally different property.

Very happy with Acadia Oceanview Hotel

I'm a fan, overall terrific experience. I love the views, the pool, the patio chairs you can hang out in overlooking the harbor. The bed is comfortable, great TV selection and they offer a modest continental breakfast (but it helps). This would be a 5 star for me if there was something to eat in closer proximity. You have to drive everywhere (there is a shuttle to Bar Harbor, I think). All told, very happy here and it's very close to Acadia.

You're Really Only Staying Here to Go to the Park

There are three reasons to stay here. It's a pretty cheap option. It's close to the park. And the view. You do get what you pay for though, and this was a very ok experience that could have been better. The hotel does feel dated, but I knew that going into it, so I wasn't terribly upset by that. We did find a pretty big stain on our sheets, and there were quite a few spiders hanging out in our windows. There was a pretty decent storm the night we stayed here. At a nicer place, you might expect the staff to make sure things were hunkered down and secured, but here we had to listen to all of the outside furniture being blown over and pushed across the patio all night by the wind. This place also really loves signs. There are signs all over the place. Including a plethora of signs to drive 5 mph, which, unlike me, you should follow. The first day there I did not follow these signs, which admittedly, was my own fault. Although I was driving safely and at a reasonable speed, it was certainly faster than 5 mph...when the front desk worker caught me, they proceeded to yell at our vehicle, walk after our car, and stare us down until we left the property. Oops!

Close to park, but cheap rooms need an update.

The Cons: we stayed in a room In the back ( probably the cheapest). Room a bit run down and small. Could not park directly in front of room. Staff not friendly at all. Pros: close to park. And they have free coffee, and ice. Grounds are nice and spacious.

A Smile from Staff Will Go a Long Way

The motel was fine, for the most part (a bit of black mold around the shower wall). However, they are in the hospitality business, and motel desk staff could not be more unhappy in their job. Please consider smiling at the guests and making them feel welcome.
