We booked a room with a king bed and two queens for our large family. When we got to our room it was only a double queen room. After discussing options with the front desk, we accepted their offer of two rooms (without additional charges) in their Willow Mansion (there are several different buildings and room types) They let us...

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting Acadia National Park. The hotel is comprised of several different buildings, and we were in the main building with the front office/lobby. The room was great except the Wi-Fi connection was slow at times and the AC unit was a little loud. Continental breakfast was solid with several different cold options... More

We decided on 4 stars because the location was so perfect. Right on the ocean plus the convenience of proximity to Acadia and pet friendly-ness. Our room was ground level so pet issues were minimal. The room could use a refresh, since pet owners would appreciate updated decor. Other rooms were newer. The shuttle to downtown worked just as billed... More

We stayed at Atlantic Oceanside 4 nights in mid-July 2014. We had no reservation at check-in and were seeking an ocean view balcony room. We got room 821 in the Willows, an older building closest to the ocean. The view and balcony were superb. The room was average with one significant problem being the roll up blinds which worked but... More

On our road trip vacation, without a reservation, and on our way across the state of New York from Canada my wife got on her smartphone and found this hotel. Having not been to Bar Harbor previously we just knew that we wanted to be close to Acadia National Park, if possible. We were also specifically looking for a room... More

Hotel itself is standard stuff. Rooms are big and clean, breakfast is usual bagels, fruit & cereal. Feel of place is fairly impersonal. Why you should stay here is position. We had a family room with sea views. The view from our balcony was amazing! There is a tiny kind of beach by the water with picnic tables and on... More

The view from the balcony on our second floor room was spectacular and made up for some unexpected challenges in the reservation and check-in process and landscaping that could use a bit of tending to. After making an initial reservation, I called back to change the dates of my visit. Alarmingly, the front desk had no record of the reservation... More

We receintly stayed in Bar Harbor for a two night stay at the Atlantic Oceanside Inn. The room was lovely. It was clean and the views of the water are beautiful.

The hotel is right on the beach, and we had a spectacular view of the harbor from our 4th floor room. The continental breakfast is good, and all of the staff were very helpful. We had a package and got to take a nature cruise from the pier right behind the hotel. The boat staff were great too, and overall,... More

On the good side: the front desk staff were superb. really great. And the views were very nice, the ocean was right there, our patio overlooked it, they do have a little stony pebble beach.

Located on 12 beautiful acres just one mile from downtown Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia National Park, the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel offers an ocean view from every room. Our brand new Atlantic View building offers everything you would expect from a modern hotel with fantastic views. Close enough to all the action of town, but just far enough away so you can relax. Our new rooms, friendly staff, and seasonal packages are the perfect combination of quality and value. Let us show you how beautiful the Maine coast can be.the AO is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its all new Bistro on Eden, a full service restaurant and bar.And with a great location comes great responsibility. The Bistro on Eden is a warm, lively restaurant and bar where people can be themselves and meet others in a friendly, comfortable setting. Overlooking Frenchman’s Bay it offers smashing views and intimate outdoor seating, where every seat faces the Atlantic Ocean. We feature great tasting fresh, seasonal comfort cooking with ingredients that are primarily sourced from local, small scale vendors. Above all you can expect warm, genuine service. That is something upon which we pride ourselves.We are located inside the lobby of the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel, 119 Eden St. Bar Harbor, and Maine 04609. Open Tues. ~ Sat. 3pm ~ 10pm ... more   less
