We stayed over New Years for several nights with extended family taking up 4-5 rooms including a suite that we could hangout in and catchup. The kids and I loved going to the pool. They keep asking when we can go back! The staff are super friendly and helpful. Great location not far from Acadia National Park.

We stayed at the Colonial Inn for a weekend with extended family. The rooms were spacious and updated. It is conveniently located to many shops and restaurants and a short drive from Bar Harbor. There was a fire pit and a yard for children to play in out away from the road. I would definitely recommend to anyone with a... More

We stayed for a few days with family over the new year and enjoyed the pool, fitness center and relaxing lobby area. Staff were very accommodating, as our kids left their hotel keys behind in our room and needed new ones coded. The Thai restaurant next door easily accommodated our party of 14 with tasty, ample and freshly prepared dishes.... More

Very trained and very welcome and warm. The respect I received as well as my young children made it worth the stay. On top of the warm clean pool. Couldn't use... More

Alarm bells rang when neither of our key cards would open our door. The manager took us up the fire escape stairs and his key would not open the balcony door. We waited in the cold until the maintenance man opened the door. We were asked if we would leave our balcony door open during our stay - he wasn't... More

We walked in not expecting much, but this is really a good place to stay! The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Our room was not 100% clean when we checked in and they moved us right away. No attitude, just cooperation, which made a very positive impression after getting off to a bad start. The room was spacious and... More

The hotel is old,with really bad furniture but usually I don't give too much importance to the appearence. The really big problem was that our room was dirty and I saw a beatle on the sink when I returned from the dinner. They change our room but when I unmake the bed for the night the blancket has a lot... More
