We needed a place to stay after we attended a concert in Bangor. I waited too long to book a hotel and Fort Knox Inn was what was available. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel, location and friendly staff.

Booked here when prices in Bar Harbor were at their seasonal highest. We were very pleased with the hotel and the staff. Although a continental breakfast is included we chose to have a full breakfast just steps away at Harbor View Cafe. The food was great!

We liked having breakfast at the table by the window with comfortable rolling chairs. Room was promptly made up every day. Big soft towels and shower water always hot even when the hotel was fully booked. Walked the river walk everyday that runs right next to the inn. The location was central to all the places we wanted to visit.... More

Monday 25 Aug - 2 couples on a motorcycle trip- This is an older Inn, but very well maintained and the rates were very reasonable. Friendly helpful staff. Our rooms overlooked the river, which is very picturesque. Went for a stroll along the path following the shore. It's saddening to see the number of empty storefronts on the main drag.... More

When we pulled into the lot I wasn't sure if this would be where we wanted to stay. The room had the look of grandmas place. It was clean and everyone was nice and gave you ideas on places to eat. You get to go up top of Penobscot Bridge what a view, tour Fort Knox. What makes this the... More

Love the Inn, rooms were perfect size, center of town, very nice, next time I will stay there again. Walk down the path on the river if you can, go to the book store across the street, The people who work there speak with the best Maine accents

We stayed at this hotel during Lobster Festival for 4 nights. Staff is very friendly and hotel was clean. Our room had a nice view of bridge and fort Knox. The only recommendation would be to add a refrigerator or microwave to make more modern. Since we were there to only sleep- it was worth the cost.

This hotel has staff that really care whether you are enjoying the stay. Do whatever they can to ensure you are comfortable. While the rooms are not huge, they are more than adequate. Views on the water side are gorgeous. Would definitely come back here.
