My wife and I stayed here two nights on our way back to Boston from our honeymoon in Quebec City. We stayed on the top floor of the main building after reading some recommendations on TripAdvisor. The view was beautiful! We had plenty of fun hanging out on our balcony. The room was deceivingly spacious and comfortable. The hotel does... More

Great hotel with an amazing view. Just sitting out on the balcony was the most relaxing. Also, the quietest hotel I've ever been to. Just minutes away from ocean front, many restaurants and shops. Will love to visit again!

We stayed in the Willows on the grounds of the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel. It was lovely, with a beautiful view of the water. The accommodations were very nice. The only thing we were disappointed with was the continental breakfast. It was way too crowded, tables were limited, and for our tastes way too many people all around the food. Too... More

This was our family vaca for the summer. Booked this and we were all happy with our stay. The room was clean quiet and wonderful view. Each room has a balcony to sit. There is a restaurant with small bar. Two pools with two hot tubs one indoor and one outside. A few negative things, the interior carpets very old... More

Dear BigCreek, Thank you for taking time to let me know about your stay with us and please accept my apologies.

Atlantic Oceanside Hotel is in the perfect location. Very close to Acadia National Park. Close enough to walk to town as well as on a designated shuttle stop. Nice views of Frenchman Bay from the hotel. Staff helpful in recommendations of restaurants and things to do.

Dear JanetK, Thank you so much for this wonderful review. I also believe that we have one of the best locations in Bar Harbor. All of our rooms have beautiful views of Frenchman's Bay, we have plenty of parking, the Island shuttle stops right here on site, or it's just a short walk to town. I hope that you will... More

We enjoyed our stay in July and found the room to be very nice. The breakfast was very good with a wide selection and was not too congested like some hotels. We booked a cruise on the Acadia, which is located on the property. I highly recommend taking the nature cruise. Make use of the bus that takes you into... More

During our 4 night stay we enjoyed a lovely view and the opportunity to relax. The Atlantic Oceanside does not have some of the amenities of a luxury hotel but is comfortable, clean, and a very good value. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived late in the evening and they were able to get us checked... More

We loved our room which was on the 4th floor of the main building. It was very clean and spacious for us. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Because of the lack of available parking around the area we liked the free bus service right outside the hotel.
