We stayed the last week of June 2014. Weather was perfect and so was this hotel. Great location, as we could walk to everything. We splurged and had a room with a hottub and ocean view. After a long bike ride in Acadia National Park, the hottub was perfect. The hotel provided enough towels as well as a free laundry... More

Happy to report that I had a great room with wine and chocolates awaiting our arrival to this fabulous property. The bellmen were engaging and remembered us from our last visit. However, I regret to report that I received neither a friendly greeting nor a "welcome back" from the check-in desk staff. Instead, I was greeted with a "yes" upon... More

We stayed here Columbus Day weekend last year and had a great time. I splurged and booked 2 nights in a Jacuzzi suite during our trip to Bar Harbor. We ended up getting in a day early and they gave us one of there simple King rooms which was really nice and a lot cheaper. The next day when we... More

My husband and I reserved a room at the Harborside Hotel & Marina for an end-of-the-season get-away. We were excited to get to Bar Harbor but broke down on the way. When we arrived a bit discouraged and much later than planned, Kali at the front desk gave us great suggestions for where to eat and what to do. Her... More

The rooms are basic but "upper-end". Clean. Quiet. Comfortable beds. Amenities include Keurig coffee machine (with choice of coffee or tea), fridge, safe, robes to use during your stay. Rooms further from the lobby (on the right side of the hotel) are more likely to have a direct water view; closer ones overlook the pool with water view in the... More

Loved every moment at this hotel. Pools are great, the one in the resort next door (sister resort) was nice too as it had a kiddy pool too as well as a jacuzzi. Don't miss walking on the tidal area which basically gets filled up with water in the evening (check out the schedule on what time it happens daily).... More

the hotel shut down its restuarant 3 days before the hotel closed for the season - not good for the guests who paid for the total experience! Without notice when we checked in, you would have thoughtn the rate would have dropped for the last two days we were staying there without a restaurant - room service

Harborside is in the perfect location for walking to downtown. We were there for the MDI marathon and it was an easy walk to the start. The view of the sunrise in the morning was beautiful!! After a day of touring it was nice to return to the lobby where a crackling fire was burning!

This property is beautiful! My girlfriend and I have stayed here twice now for our anniversary and love it. Each time we have had a beautiful room with a private Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. This year we had to change the original date we had booked for and the room we requested was not available for the new dates. Kaleigh... More
