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.

This was our second stay at the Atlantic Oceanside---as always, the view was superb! Even when it is too cold to sit outside, you can still enjoy the view with your morning coffee. Our room was lovely, and nicely appointed with a refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast was superb, even pleasing a hungry teenager! The pool and hot tub were... More

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. It isn't too easy to find a nice place during the off-season which for Bar Harbor is most of the year! We have stayed here a few times before change of ownership and... More

We were there for a conference, received a very fair rate and were placed in a beautiful room with two double beds, a refrigerator and microwave and best of all a balcony overlooking the ocean. The staff was always pleasant and helpful and the breakfast a pleasant, generous surprise and Wade, the friendly gentlemen who was overseeing the room was... More

Stayed here Labor Day week, 2014. My husband and I were a bit disappointed with the quality of the hotel, but considering prices of nearby hotels, it was a clean room and breakfast without breaking the bank. 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

Nice Hotel. The view is beautiful. Right on the Ocean. A little expensive but well renovated. Near Bar Harbor. There are different buildings so you have to go outside if you want to use the indoor pool or go to breakfast. The lady at the breakfast restaurant was very nice.

The Atlantic Oceanside Hotel was open in November, when many others were closed. The rates were reasonable; the room was clean and comfortable; the view from the room was lovely; the staff was friendly; and the breakfast was delicious!

Whenever my family visits Bar Harbor or needs a place to stay before heading to Swan's Island, we always choose the Atlantic Oceanside. Family friendly, beautiful and clean rooms, fantastic views, you really can't go wrong. My family spends time on the small beach on their property, swims in the indoor and outdoor pools. I also go for runs along... More
