After a four and a half hour drive from Peterborough to Toronto (usually one and a half) due to snow and a five hour delay in Philadelphia due to backlogs, when we arrived in Bangor we phoned Days Inn Bar Harbor (where we had a confirmed booking) to make sure we could check in late. “Yes, no problem “, said...

Based on Trip Advisor, we recently stayed for three winter nights at this location and were very happy with our stay. Friendly staff, well appointed rooms, clean, great pool, and a wonderful location. We were particularly happy with the complementary breakfast buffet …. we don't usually except much and often pass them up; but here we enjoyed three great breakfasts... More

After staying six days out of our eleven day stay with this hotel for our third time in the past year.

I am disappointed in TripAdvisor for allowing this to be posted as it is not the truth. I never kicked this guest out of the hotel and here is my side of the story.

I was in Bar Harbor on winter business, and the Oceanside was one of the few hotels still open that had reasonable rates. Although I admittedly did not spend much time in the room, my hours there were very comfortable. Climate control was excellent (breaking a string of several past hotels with so-so heat/AC). The view was, of course, amazing.... More

Third floor room with amazing ocean view. Room was large and well appointed. Carpet and furnishings looked new while washroom was a bit dated but very clean. Very good breakfast included. Staff was very friendly. Pool area looked nice although we didn't use it. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. Very good value for off season price.

We travel to Bar Harbor to visit family primarily. Our latest trip this past week was to see our grandchildren, especially grand-daughter performing her MDIHS musical performance.

Stayed here Labor Day week, 2014.

It was also several miles from downtown Bar Harbor making it feel even more inconvenient. Breakfast was decent and had gluten-free options and... More
