Great location! Beautiful hotel in Bar Harbor, close to everything! Loved being able to walk to the shopping area and restaurants. Staff extremely nice and helpful. Rooms were a nice size for family of 4. Only disappointment was wi-fi was a little spotty.

This past July marked our 9th visit to the Harborside. This year we brought friends and family for a total of 12 guests. As per usual, the Harbourside did not disappoint and has 8 new members to its fan list. Its location on the water is beautiful. Sitting on our balcony sipping my coffee, smelling the sea air, and being... More

This hotel is in a terrific spot in Bar Harbor, right on the water with a lot of facilities that make for a really nice visit. The views are beautiful - even from a ground floor room. The rooms are very nicely appointed and comfortable. Staff is very helpful, but not overbearing. Highly recommend this hotel for a getaway or,... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon. The rooms were nice, the staff was friendly and it was what I expected for the price. Please note that everyone has to pay a $25 club fee per day. It seems a lot of people are surprised by this, but it is clearly stated on the website. We put it to good use... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harborside. Our room was clean and spacious. The grounds were lovely, the pool and jacuzzi clean and inviting. The staff we interacted with were attentive and courteous. The location simply can't be beat--within walking distance to the many restaurants and shops in Bar Harbor and just a short drive to Acadia. My only reason... More

I can't say enough positive things about this hotel. It's been a wonderful stay for my boyfriend and I. I splurged and booked the room with the hot tub. Let me tell you it was so worth it. Perfect for the day it was cool and rainy, and also coming back from a long hike. We used it everyday! The... More

I am staying here as we speak. I surprised my husband with a trip here for our 25th anniversary. I have to say for the money we are being charged, there are a few issues. There were dirty dishes left in our hallway for over 24 hrs that we constantly had to walk by. I used the main bathroom in... More

Great experience at Harborside. Very comfortable and nicely appointed hotel. The 2 pools are wonderful. Both great for kids and families but also relaxing and peaceful..not overcrowded and plenty of lounge chairs. Bar and food service available. Can't say enough about the large rooms with a great view of harbor. Literally steps from tons of things to do .. kayaking,... More

We had a room with a jacuzzi on the deck facing the harbor. The sun rises were beautiful and the view of the harbor with boats coming and going with islands in the background was absolutely gorgeous. The location to downtown / Main Street was great.
