Tiny bathroom
The bathroom is tiny, the shower stall is about 2ft by 2ft and the toilet area is also too narrow to use. I'm a big guy and using the bathroom was a very unpleasant experience.

It was OK but I’d look around next time
I had read reviews before I stayed and one thing that I hadn’t seen mentioned is that there was no bolt or chain lock on the door, you need a key to open the door and then it locks behind you and that’s it. The size and configuration of the shower is such that it’s difficult to put legs under the water stream. You can hear every vehicle that is driving on or off Mount Desert Island pass by - so just depends on how sensitive you are to noise as to how much of an issue this will be.

2/10 Poor

They double booked us for our first night and didn't even realize we were coming until we got there late in the day. Had to find a last minute hotel for significantly more. Stayed the second night but they didn't even offer a discount for the inconvenience.

Place to sleep after a day of hiking
My husband and I spend 3 nights in Acadia Gateway Motel. Our cottage was nice. 2 small bedrooms with a living room and a small bathroom. Clean towels and linen. Very accommodating owners. In the morning coffee and donuts were served in the office. 20 min. drive to Bar Harbor. Some updating in the Living Rm. would be nice. There was a very unpleasant smell coming from the bathroom. So we kept a window open as soon as we would come from the park.

We stayed for three nights in a cottage room with a double bed. Definitely no-frills and the shower was pretty small, but it was very clean and we got clean towels every day. Would recommend for anyone visiting Acadia/Bar Harbor!

A nice stay in a good location
I like the little duo cabins, which gave a sense of privacy, and the auto-lock door gave a sense of safety. Walls are a bit thin, so you'll hear the neighbor's TV, but that's not so bad since there's only one neighbor in the unit. The room was clean and well kept. Overall it was a pleasant stay at a very reasonable price.

Safe and convenient for quick Acadia stop
Not a bad budget option at all, only 20 minutes to bar harbor and 25 to the Acadia visitors center. Each unit is a tiny shack that is standalone or connected to others, has a full sized bed that is not the comfiest (and is a little crinkly from a plastic bed liner for sanitation) but was comfortable enough to sleep on, especially when tired after a day of hiking. It gets a little hot inside but cross breeze through the windows and an AC unit in the back window remedied that quickly. Cleaned daily and didn’t feel dirty though the cleaner smell wasn’t my favorite. The staff at reception when we checked in were wonderful and very kind, and safety wise we had no concerns. The doors automatically lock when closed so you don’t have to worry that you accidentally left it unlocked after leaving. Overall not somewhere I’d stay if I were planning to spend a ton of time in the hotel but really great and convenient if your goal is staying near Acadia and just using it as a home base for sleeping and keeping your stuff safe.
