    WORST PLACE OF OUR TRIP

    This place had me seriously doubting hotel.com's ratings as this was listed as "superb 9.2" - definitely NOT. Grossly overpriced! No place to hang clothes or even to put suitcases. Road/traffic noise. If you don't wash your dishes (by hand in the bathroom sink) prior to leaving the charge is $20! The toilet paper holder was falling off the wall and was held on with black duct tape. I pulled out the hairdryer and some dead earwigs along with it. The baseboards looked like they were last cleaned in 2010. No shelves or any area at all in the bathroom to store any toiletries. No place to hang clothes or even open a suitcase, except the bed. Luggage stand desperately needed. Good points: Keurig coffee pods and pot, refrigerator (tiny), nice outdoor area.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    we enjoyed our short stay at Hanscom's motel and cottages. The location was perfect, just a 10 min drive from Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbour. the only negative was there was a bee problem, there was always a swarm of bees near our room door.

    Loved the kitchenette and space, needs cleaning

    Great amenities; however, not as clean as I would like. Not swept or mopped. Bathroom had quite a few small bugs throughout.

    Good spot, clean and well maintained

    Good, clean, well-maintained motel-level accommodations. Quiet. I would have preferred that they include cleaning the dishes in the room price rather than requiring you to clean them or pay a $20 up-charge, but ymmv. One minor annoyance was that the heating/cooling system was linked to two other rooms', so we weren't allowed to turn our AC off. Like, fix that, guys. The Bar Harbor loop bus that services that area is on limited covid schedules that cut out at dinner time, so you'll need to drive into town (and find parking) or maybe rely on taxi/ride share. That said, it's a short drive, and we found parking quickly every time we went. Overall, very good value.

    Perfect little dog friendly cabin

    What a cute little cottage, very close to Acadia. It's small but worked great for a few days for the two of us and our dog. The kitchenette was nice and the bed was comfortable. I could not get the dang Roku on the TV to work, but we were so tired after a busy day, we didn't need a TV. Great grill, fire pits and lounge area right outside the cabin. Overall, very nice.

    Comfortable stay

    Nice motel/cottages located away from busy Bar Harbor but close to Acadia. The kitchenette in the studio cottage had all the supplies needed to cook or eat in the room. The property also offers an area for a campfire or grilling. We appreciated the contactless check in/out. Comfortable stay with no complaints.

    We only stayed for one night due to rain ending our camping trip early. Really cute place. Would love to stay longer next time we’re in town. Cute patio and fire pit.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The family running it was extremely good at communicating. That said there are a few frustrating things that we experienced. I'm not going to mention the wifi because they were very active in fixing it. That said: (1) the door did not have a deadbolt which was concerning. (2) the smoke detector in the room did not have a battery which is a fire hazard. (3) the paint in the bathroom above the shower was peeling. (4) there was an indication of what appears to be mold on the right shade in the room. Overall, it was a bed and a shower, the "kitchen" noted on Hotels.com is in fact a kitchenette comprised of a microwave, a minifridge, and a coffee machine. If you need a cheap place to stay and don't mind the comfort too much this is a great option.
