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.

We were super excited about our great find to enjoy our vacation in Bar Harbor. The place was very outdated but that was ok because we have stayed at plenty of outdated places, it was the room that was just terrible. For the rate that we got we expected a little better. The balcony we had we couldn't use. The... More

We were a family of three adults and the room was adequate for us. Two double beds, with one of sleeping on the floor on sleeping bags. The hotel charges you $25 for a roll away bed per night. What we enjoyed most about the hotel were the spacious and quiet surroundings it was set in giving it a resort... More

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We love our location which sits on over 14 acres of land giving it not only a resort feeling as you describe, but also plenty of space for that family barbeque or picnic, a walk with the dog, or a game of volley ball. As you have said... More

We first visited this hotel in 2000., and stayed in about the same rooms on the same level as the office. At that time we had a wonderful view of Bar Harbor from our little balcony. The trees have taken over and the view is gone, except for a tiny piece in the distance off to the right. That was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us on Tripadvisor. It sounds as though you had a successful trip overall. It is true that the trees are growing, this is one of the aspects of living in such a forested area. You might enjoy a room at a higher elevation the next time you visit and... More

Yes, it is old fashioned. We stayed in the Hillcrest rooms, right at the top of the estate, next to the very good dog friendly Looking Glass Restaurant. Wonderful views from our balcony. Good complimentary breakfast at the office, which was the only place where we could get reasonably decent internet access. We tried to get this issue addressed several... More

This was wonderful for us and our dog. It is very close to downtown Bar Harbor- one night we walked and one night we took the free shuttle bus which leaves from the front of the motel AND allows dogs.The motel is older but pretty well maintained. Dog-friendly is really an understatement. He received a treat and a water bowl... More

The Wonder View Inn comprises 4 different levels of rooms, and I do mean 'levels.' Some rooms (small, look like the old 50's motel rooms) are on the lower level with the office; some rooms are slightly larger and on an incline above them; some rooms are larger and nicer yet, and are up again, near the fabulous restaurant. Plus,... More
