Stayed at the West Street Hotel in August, 2014. The view is exquisite from both the rooms and the pool. If aesthetics matter to you, this is your hotel of choice. The rooms were spacious and well kept. The only negative was the air conditioning system was controlled by the front desk and tended to be too warm. This problem... More

This hotel is great. I rarely take the time to write reviews of places my wife and I stay, but I wanted to take the time to recommend this place, we stayed here Memorial Day 2015.

Beautiful hotel, amazing location, and great service! This is the perfect little weekend getaway place for me and my wife. Best part about this hotel is that you're within walking distance of everything down town.

Visited in summer 2014. Enjoyed the balcony overlooking the water, rooftop pool, warm chocolate chip cookies and coffee selections, heated outdoor seating at Paddy's, and the location convenient to everything. Planning a trip back soon.

I stayed here with my pregnant wife. The decor is nautical and its well done. The hotel is connected to an irish pub so thats convenient. Bar Harbor is very expensive but its checked off the bucket list. I am not sure I would go back to Bar Harbor but if I did I would stay at this hotel.

Had a great time staying here, as we booked it online before going. The rooms were clean, and the location was perfect for what we were looking for. Bar harbor is a very unique summer colony in Maine, and we will most definitely be re-visiting next summer.

We booked this hotel for a week for our 50th anniversary trip. We would definitely rate it as a 5 star except that on the first night we were placed in the dreaded room 425. I had already read a review stating that room was noisy, so I asked the front desk if that was the case. The young woman... More

We booked this hotel only from seeing it online and boy, we were not disappointed. Our corner suite looked out on the main street and also onto the boat docks. We could watch all the activity right from any of our balconies. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

I stay in dozens of hotels a year with good to excellent results but my experience at West Street Hotel was by far the most unpleasant I had ever dealt with and would not recommend to anyone.
