Positive Reviews

Nears Bustling City-Life.

As Anchorage Motel is set within the heart of Bar Harbor, residents delight in a wide variety of restaurants, bars, and other dining establishments. Museums, art galleries, and golf courses are also abundant throughout the encompassing area. A bus stop lies less than 100 feet from the property, permitting brief and hassle-free access to neighboring towns and destinations.

Coastal Scenery.

Nestled against the coast of Bar Harbor, Anchorage Motel permits stunning views of the outstretching sea and city-life. The spacious patio—adorned with comfortable seating arrangements—extends down a terraced path to the motel's private dock, serving as an ideal location for fishing or having a picnic.

Family-Run Hospitality.

One's initial instance of arrival is comprised of a jovial "Welcome!" from personable staff. No request or concern is too much for the personnel of this coastal inn; whether you're feasting on the sumptuous, home-cooked breakfast, conversing with reception on arrival, or are in need of additional towels or bedding, cordiality is never lacking.

Negative Reviews

Dated Facilities.

Previous guests of Anchorage Motel have expressed their disappointment with the condition of certain facilities. The chipped and faded paint of the exterior is accompanied by cracked sidewalk, which is met by malfunctioning televisions, creaking floor boards, and ill-fitted windows.

A Shimmer of Dirt.

In addition to the aforementioned issues with the structure itself, visitors have often borne complaints over the motel's standard of cleanliness. Dusty headboards, rusting faucets, and poorly vacuumed carpets are a few grievances among the lot reported by previous residents.


As can be expected with any city-center dwelling, the surrounding environment is often busy, which tends to result in high levels of noise. Commotion from passersby and neighboring establishments have been reported to extend well-past midnight.
