Chose this hotel from the reviews on Trip Advisor - excellent choice. Expensive, but then downtown Bar Harbor is an expensive place. This hotel is bang in downtown right on the harbour side. You can walk to the restaurants, shops, around the coast walk, across to the island, all without getting in the car. The rooms are extremely well appointed... More

great location with excellent facilities. Rooms are in very good condition and service to match. Many of the staff are from overseas on work visas and they try so hard to make sure the customer is looked after. Great facilities and reasonable prices, good quality food also and I could not fault the place.

We are in our mid sixties, from Florida and travel a lot. This hotel was beautiful inside and out. The rooms were very well done with beautiful decor. Wonderful linens and pillows. We had a harbor view room which I would highly recommend. We were on the first floor so our room opened up on to a big deck with... More

Two weeks ago we had a great stay at the Harborside. Spectacular thunderstorm, room service food that was wonderful. This past weekend, we did not have the same experience. We were put in a room that was adjoining to rooms with families where we could clearly hear every word through the doors connecting the rooms, that was being said. I... More

Yes there is a $25 per day "resort" fee - remember that when comparing prices to other places. The good: Location - right on the bar and the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, we were able to walk right out onto the bar and into town. Amenities - looks upscale and by the numbers has everything you need. Could be... More

We checked in late and went to sleep --for a few hours, and that's when the garbage truck loaded up under our balcony. Then the delivery trucks arrived, everyone intent on backing up so we heard beeps galore. I opened the drapes to behold my "King Island View." The view was a parking lot. One hundred yards beyond was the... More

I join my husband annually for a conference simply to stay at this hotel! I love Bar Harbor also but, living on the coast myself, it is not a stand-out for me personally. With that said, if I did not live in a similar community, it would be! In a nutshell, The Harborside Hotel is classy without being stuffy, pretentious,... More

Booked a premium king island view. Got a basic king room with a parking lot view. It is true you can see the island from the corner of the balcony, but almost all the view is the parking lot. I would have thought with 2 upgrades ( premium / island view ) we would have paid for a room not... More
