You are of course right, there IS NO better view than right from your window of the suspension bridge, Fort Knox, the marina and harbor and ALL unobstructed!

The view from the water-side rooms is so spectacular (bridge included) makes me wonder where I am: France? Japan? No, wait ... I'm in Maine! The helpful staff are so sweet and great dining within walking distance. Both Ming's and MacLeods are well worth a stop even if not staying. Have already made reservations for next business trip, central to... More

We love staying here! The staff is always very friendly, the rooms are always clean and the view is wonderful! We like to eat across the street and it's a wonderful place to take a walk. This is where we always stay when in this area.

I stayed here on a business trip working overnights. My room was clean, warm and comfortable. The bed was cozy and the view was amazing. I stayed during the winter season so there weren't many people there and it was very quiet. The woman that ran the front desk was very kind and accommodating for the 2 weeks I was... More

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
