The rooms are like a drive-up motel rather than an hotel as we were expecting, and the room was a bit of a timewarp back to an earlier motel age in its appearance and construction, definitely showing its age. However we enjoyed it, everything worked fine and it had all you needed. There's a free complementary serve-yourself breakfast in Reception,... More

Wonder View looks cute on its website but it does not deliver. We requested (and prepaid) for a room with a view, but upon arrival were told that the room was not available and given a lesser room, but no refund on the price difference. The bed was very hard and lumpy and the linens were thin. But the worst... More

I enjoyed my stay in Bar Harbor at the Wonder View Inn. The room was large and very nice, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom large. There was a nice picture window with a view in the direction of the water, and although there were a lot of trees in between it was a relaxing scene. The television had a... More

We stayed here two nights as part of a tour of New England. The rooms are adequate but clearly need to be brought up to date. A big plus with the hotel is the ability to use the facilities of the neighbouring Bluenose Inn. However, we only found this out by accident, whether this was because we arrived on a... More

Among so many choices available in Bar Harbor, I needed something on the budget and still decent and near everything. I found the Wonder View inn which fulfilled my needs completely. It is a big property and the surroundings are very nice. The restaurant has good food, an outdoor fireplace and a gorgeous view of the harbor.

The Inn is located on a beautiful property. The views from the rooms at the top of the property and from the restaurant are definitely deserving of the Inn's name. I only stayed for one night, and it was a very positive experience. My only reason for leaving 4 instead of 5 stars is that the room was pretty dated.... More

We have stayed in a variety of places in Bar Harbor, ranging from the super expensive Balance Rock Inn to some of the little cabin-type motels out on Rte. 3. Wonderview is at the top of my list. Most important of all, they allow dogs. And every Acadia Park hike is better with your dog! The people are friendly and... More

The room smelled musty, the view was of some trees. We should not have stayed. The bathroom had mold in it, the faucets dripped at night. The light from outside the door came in the room because there is a window above the door, so the room cannot get totally dark. The coffee for the coffee maker tasted list dust.... More
