There is no "wonder" view. :( It was disappointing to open our nice big window and see all trees! Not even a glimpse through the trees. The stay and people were very nice! The rooms are very dated but clean. Nice short walk to Bar Harbor!

I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed by the view from your room. The growth of forrest over the years has changed some of the views from certain parts of the property. Since it sounds like you enjoyed our hotel overall, I hope that you will consider staying with us again sometime. Just let our reservations desk... More

Why do we stay at Wonderview year after year? Primarily because of good memories and a great location. Since I know what rooms to ask for, I know where there are still views that encompass not just trees, but also Frenchman's Bay. As others have noted, the rooms need significant updating to merit their cost. The furniture in our room... More

There wasn't necessarily anything wrong with this property, except the price! I am not the type of girl who requires 5 star accommodations. HOWEVER, when booking a hotel that is double the price of some of the rooms/cottages in the area I anticipated something more. The room was small and dated, which would have been fine but the price did... More

My dog and I recently stayed at this inn (we usually come to Acadia every fall to hike and rent a cottage) this year no cottages were available so I chose Wonder View. This is a absolutely lovely place to stay with your dog. We received a welcome package when we checked in that had a dog bowel, dog cookie,... More

Well the rooms are dated, but very clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. However, the name matched the accommodations, it's wonder-ful. Overlooking the islands and water to the east, nestled 400 feet above Bar Harbor...just delightful. Also, they only charged $20.00 for our dog, which is reasonable compared to most.

This inn is quite aged. It is not a place we would normally stay, but it served it's purpose for one night and we are no less weary because of it. It was very clean except where the tubs' top meets the tubs' bottom, there is a under ledge, only seen if you are taking a bath rather than a... More

Very friendly staff, Room was quiet and very clean. Bed was very comfortable. There was a private balcony off our room with a good view of Frenchman Bay. The breakfast was great with many items to choose from. Location was fine with easy drives to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. We would definitely recommend this Inn to friends and,... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Wonder View. We booked a room in Hillcrest House, 2nd level and the views of the harbor were spectacular! They were very welcoming of our dog, even providing a little welcome gift for her! The property itself could use some updating. Everything just seemed a bit tired. The outside stairs and decks needed a... More

Had a wonderful time. Clean rooms friendly staff. Aptly named - the view truly is a wonder the laundry was a nice touch. One less thing to worry about when you get back from vacation. Plenty of hiking trails in the area from beginner to expert Thank you for your hospitality

Pros: Good location to Acadia, scenic drives, downtown Bar Harbor, restaurants & shopping Cons: Old motel, very hard mattress and pillows, also room smelled moldy. Also, this is a dog friendly motel so keep this in mind if you have allergies.
