Now that I've been to Bar Harbor, and spent a little time looking at the other properties I had considered, I can't believe that this resort does not have a higher rating. First, it is a stunning property. Second, it has an excellent location. Its very accessible to the town, but not in the middle of the chaos. The hotel... More

My family and I just returned from a trip to the Harborside Hotel which was planned last January. The hotel did not guarantee our reservation made in January...an expensive harborside room with harbor view...and proceeded to make an excuse that the hot tub was broken. Much to our surprise, it was occupied by another guest. The check-in staff made no... More

This place is different than full service upper class hotels such as the Ritz, etc., but this is a very, very nice and very clean hotel. My room is on the back side from the Bar Harbor marina but still has a nice view of the bay. Pros: As far as I am concerned, a good value for the money.... More

Having a 2 & 3 year old with us and not particularly found of others being able to look in our room, we asked if we could be moved to an... More

Having read various reviews, we were very nervous about how the hotel and service would be. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but I still think they have some kinks to work out. The pros: the hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to everything in town; the pool was beautiful and well-kept, chairs were very comfortable, and the drinks... More
