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. The individuals who operate this property do not keep their word nor care about the customer. It is all about maximizing the revenue... More

We stayed at the West Street Hotel for a weekend in October and had an absolutely wonderful experience. Every summer, we camp on MDI, but had never stayed in a hotel in Bar Harbor. We decided to head up for an autumn weekend away and chose West Street because they were running a good deal. I'm so glad we did... More

We stayed in a two bedroom corner suite with balconies overlooking the harbor. The hotel was clean, new and well above average. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is literally in the middle of everything in the harbor. You can walk everywhere in town in just a few minutes. There was free coffee, water, cookies and... More

My husband and I stayed here at the end of June for a long weekend. We arrived mid afternoon to find no valet parking so we parked ourselves behind the hotel. Once we came inside no one was at the front desk. We had someone come out from behind, checked us in and told us we were probably parked in... More

The hotel has a great location and beautiful big rooms. We shelled out for an ocean view & were pleased we did. The rooms at the back look out over the car park which is such a shame as the hotel is right on the water. You have to accept that you are right in the harbour so there are... More
