The location of the hotel was the reason selecting it. And it was worth it. Room with ocean view, nice balcony, the sunrise was always the hit seeing cruse ships coming in and crossing by with the charme of the old traditional harbor. The hotel itself is traditionally okay, but not more state of the art, needs some updates without... More

We booked a king room with a hottub on a private balcony. When we arrived they upgraded us to a king suite - our bedroom had a king bed, but also had two armchairs to sit in front of the natural gas fireplace to watch tv on the flatscreen that hung on the wall. We also had a kitchen, a... More

My boyfriend and I took a spontaneous vacation out to see Acadia for a few days. I called around to see if any hotels had availability and everyone was full except a room at harbor side. It was a little out of our price range but figured we'd splurge for the fun of it. I called and made reservations over... More

Breakfast is special at The Harborside Hotel! The chef always has the freshest ingredients & the wait staff welcome you in with hot coffee ready to pour ! We choose to return year after year to The Harborside for many positives it provides during our stay, however ,the stuffed marscapone blueberry French toast is worth the stay on its own!

We decided to do a few days in Bar Harbor after dropping our son off at the University of Maine Orono. The Harborside Hotel is about an hour from Orono. The property is beautifully maintained and the location couldn't be better. It is located at the foot of the main street of Bar Harbor on the water. Our room was... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days in August and had a fantastic time. We had a first floor room with a beautiful view of the harbor. Our room was within 50 feet of the water. The hotel was within walking distance of all shopping and restaurants in Bar Harbor. Never had to move our car except to visit... More

Sublime location with very nice views. 80% of staff is very nice - some could do a refreshment course in 'how to please people...'. the outdoor pools are nice - the rooms are a little boring. All in all the hotel lacks 'the extra'.

The location of the hotel is fantastic. Walking distance to the free shuttle buses to the park, restaurants, tours and the sand bar to Bar Island. This allowed us to leave our car in the lots for most of our trip. The service at the hotel was very good, the rooms comfortable with nice patios and the pool was nice.... More

This is the spot to stay in if visiting Bar Harbor/ Acadia. The location can not be beat and it gives you access to the Bar Harbor Club which has an amazing pool that my kids loved. We also loved the FREE laundry facilities! It is a very family friendly hotel!

We ended up here for 3 nights after our initial hotel choice didn't work out. Great location in the middle of it all, good amenities (pools, tennis courts, etc), lovely staff. Our room was quite large, had a deck with a gorgeous ocean view, nice marble bathroom - no complaints. As this is a large resort, the rooms and common... More
