Bradyfamilies5, Thank you for choosing the Atlantic Oceanside for your stay in Bar Harbor. We appreciate your comments as they help us improve our facilities; as a matter of fact we are in the midst of a total renovation of the Main Building including carpet, wall paper, window treatments, and all new furniture (this will be complete in May 2014)....

My room was stiflingly hot, and turning down the themostat had no effect. I complained to the front desk, but the staff person was unable to help and resorted to opening the window for me. A few days later, I responded to a hotel email survey, which invited me to call if I had been dissatisfied with my stay. I... More

We chose this hotel because we were attending a Basketball Tournament. We wanted a pool, and a restaurant on site. The pool was in another building and the restaurant was closed. We had to walk next door to use the pool, which wouldn't have been a problem if we didn't have to walk up/down an icy hill in the dark.... More

I was there for a basketball tournament this past weekend. I was really looking forward to this hotel stay from what I saw on your page. I have to say that the room was clean but your hot water situation was HORRIBLE!!!!! I complained and I got the " many children must be using it all at same time" well... More

Very clean, especially helpful and pleasant staff. Sorry we had to go to a separate building for pool and hot tub, but loved both. Please include the brew pub across the road on your list of good places to eat.

We (3 cousins) came to the area for a baby shower in Ellsworth, but couldn't pass up an opportunity to see and stay in fabulous Bar Harbor. Our room was a delight with a balcony and fantastic view of the ocean. All of the appointments were far above expectations, and all areas were immaculate. The included hot and cold breakfast... More

I am a guest a few times each year at the ACH for business. I love the new building and beautiful rooms.From the person who took my phone reservation to the moment I left the property, I had a relaxing three night stay.

Clean room, great breakfast and friendly staff. My wife is a germafobe, so her only complaint was that fact that your maids wash the coffee mugs in the bathroom sink. They should be taken to the kitchen and cleaned in the dishwasher! Also, the hot tub looked dirty.

We checked in on Friday Feb. 14th. We were greeted by a very pleasant and efficient young lady upon arrival. The room was spacious, clean and had a great view of the ocean. What really stood out was exceptional service from every employee we made contact with. We experienced a storm on Saurday night that left more than 2 feet... More

We spent a long weekend in Acadia cross country skiing. The hotel was very clean, nicely furnished, comfy beds and linens with easy access to Bar Harbor. The price off-season was certainly right. We would stay again off-season at this hotel. The breakfast was okay, typical continental style. It could have used a little less processed foods and more homemade... More
