“Fantastic Family owned motel”
We loved this motel from the second we arrived. The rooms had a fridge and microwave and spotless clean. I loved the airport behind us watching the small planes land and take off and we did not hear any noise from them at all. Location is fantastic! A short 5-10 min drive to Acadia National Park entrance and Bar Harbor.  The IGA store was also only 1/4 mile away. The heated pool was also great and very well maintained and clean. The staff here were fantastic helping us with anything we needed. I think this is the PERFECT place to stay if you are like me and on a budget but still want a great place!

The Acadia Sunrise was an excellent experience! I enjoyed the comfort of the room, and the beautiful grounds! It is a rare find to be able to see families (children and even their loved pets) enjoying their vacations at a motel with a spacious lawn, heated pool, gorgeous flowers, and even basketball for the kids!!!! This time I was alone visiting friends; when I come back I will bring my family!

"I would definitely stay there again!"
Reviews for Acadia Sunrise Motel
"Great economical room with friendly folk!"
Reviewed on Tripadvisor.com
This room was booked simply by investigating options online prior to arrival. We were very pleased with the cleanliness, and well maintained room and grounds. We wanted a clean comfortable place to lay our heads after a busy day being tourists. Roy was particularly friendly and helpful with suggestions. We spent thirteen hours touring the island, and Ellsworth, so it was nice coming "home" after such a busy day. Great location, between Bar Harbor and Ellsworth. We will definitely stay here when we come back. Thanks! 
“Great Value in the Acadia area”

We were looking for a place to sleep after biking the Acadia Carriage Trails. This place was a very pleasant surprise. The rooms were clean, everything worked, there was a fridge and microwave in the room and the staff were very nice and helpful. We will be going back!"
“We loved it and hope to be back soon”
Besides the great rates, I booked the room in this motel because of its central location and because it was locally, family owned. I had booked the motel room and then had a last minute change in our travel plans that enabled me to book an additional night. Due to room availability we moved rooms after the first night, and we had the opportunity to experience two types of rooms. First of, the staff was extremely friendly from the minute we booked the room, to helping us with changes and throughout our whole stay. Our first night we stayed in a room with a full kitchen. Since I came to mountain bike and to kayak with my two teenage children, a full kitchen was great. It gave me the ability to buy food and make lunches for the next day. The second room we stayed in had a microwave and a fridge. That was very much workable. In retrospect, I should have booked the larger room for all nights, but we really did have a fantastic time. The rooms were clean, coffee was in the room and the pool was heated (which was great). I very much hope to return, we had a great stay! 

“Definite Yes”

The hotel/cabin rates in the Acadia/Bar Harbor area were a bit expensive so I picked this motel mainly because of the reasonable price. We had a very spacious suite with a full kitchen. The staff was accomodating and the back of the property, along with the pool, was attractive. Many reviews claimed that internet was impossible to get but we did have it in our room all three nights. It is close enough to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park without the hassle of the crowds. I would definitely stay here again. 
Great bargain!

“Solid Economy Accommodations”
Reviewed Tripadvisor.com
The name is actually "Acadia Sunrise Motel". This was the second spot we stayed at in the area as bookings were tight and we had to do two places to get three nights. The room was very clean and comfortable, quite roomy for the price and updated finishes. The manager Roy is terrific and very helpful on all fronts from restaurant advice to kayaking launches and weather. Trenton is just outside of Mt. Desert, so you can easily get to the various island destinations. If you're not concerned with frills and just want clean, simple lodging at an excellent value, this is for you.
Room Tip: The doubles here are huge and families can book adjoining rooms with kitchenettes, so perfect for large groups..

We went there the last week of June. Roy (the manager) was very friendly, courteous and helpful both in making reservations and during our stay. We booked two rooms as we have a family of 7. The rooms were very neat and clean. The pool was a beautiful one; very clean, well kept, and maintained. We really enjoyed swimming at the end of our jam packed days. The kitchenette had everything that we needed to prepare our meals and pack our lunches. The price was extremely reasonable. It is not always easy to find value near such a major tourist attraction like Acadia National Park. It is about ten minutes from Acadia National Park which was superb. We hope to return in the near future. I HIGHLY recommend the Acadia Sunrise without any hesitation.
“Great stay”

Friendly clean and great staff with spacious rooms.  My children were put first, I was asked daily if we needed anything and greeted with a smile. I will return as soon as they open. If you want a wonderful stay this is the place to go.

We booked this motel 3 days prior to our arrival, priced right, pet friendly an added bonus as we like to travel with our 4 legged kid. Another couple were meeting us a day later. We arrived late Friday afternoon and were quickly checked into our room. The room was clean, large with a well equipped small kitchenette. There is also a BBQ at the back area for guests to use, which we did, we had a lovely BBQ for 4 on Sunday. The Airport was an added surprise as we all love to Plane watch, we enjoyed the Air Traffic during our down times. Toured the Bar Harbor area by day and relaxed at the Motel by night…we had a great weekend, thanks to the staff at Acadia Sunrise!!! We will return…... 
Room Tip: Kitchen units on the Back of the Motel are great, views of the Mountains and the Airport.

​If you're looking for a clean, affordable room easily accessible half-way between Bar Harbor(15 minutes) and Ellsworth; this is it. Family run and great, helpful hospitality.
