Very push place in the heart of Bar Harbor. Having been to MDI and stayed in Bar Harbor numerous times before this was a pleasant surprise, but unfortunately, I think the height of the season may have caught up with the staff. I have read previous reviews, and saw the signs that say there would be silver and stem ware... More

We stayed for two days with my 7 year old grandson. Staff was very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. We had a room in the front overlooking West St and the bay. Great location, we parked the car in their lot (complimentary) and walked for the three days. The roof top pool was amazing. Room was exceptional and even my grandson... More

My family and i came to the area for a wedding. I had made a reservation at the Ramada in Ellsworth. When we pulled in the lot and walked in the lobby I knew I was in the dog house. My family unleashed their dissapointment on me. I called Expedia back, and every room in the area was booked; with... More

I had chosen this hotel based on past reviews and I am glad I did! At first I was confused about whether to pick an ocean view or harbor view. I chose an ocean view at first, then changed to a harbor view a few days before the trip (which ended up being less) and I'm glad I did. I... More

The staff, the beds, the location of the property cannot be better. We arrived for a 4 night stay. Yes, it's not cheap compared to the rest of the area, but you can't go wrong. On each floor they have a small kitchenette area where you can grab unlimited bottles of water, coffee, and tea. They even offer cookies and... More

This will be our third visit to this hotel. We come as a small group with family and friends. (We previously stayed here the first summer it opened as well as again last summer- each time for about 9 days). We absolutely love it and can't wait to get back there this August. I didn't think a hotel could improve... More

I have stayed at many very nice hotels but I have high expectations and expect to get my money's worth. The West absolutely blew me away!!!! The staff couldn't have been nicer, more efficient, or more cordial. The moment we walked through the door we new we were in the perfect place. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and is decorated...

A completely different experience from the musty dusty B and Bs and outdated hotels in the area. Everything is fresh and modern with beautiful lighting and thoughtfully appointed rooms and furnishings. Square footage allows you to enjoy your room and beautiful bathroom--all standard. Lobby and public area wonderful, the spa is incredible. But best of all, the sterling and well-trained... More

I wrote a review last year about how this hotel is wonderful, and I'm happy to report it was just as good the second year! From the moment you drive up, the guys outside are super helpful with bags, to walking into the beautiful lobby and greeted by some of the friendliest hotel front desk people I have ever encountered!...

Simple Devine...large rooms, decor, upgrade, friendly staff, infinity pool, ocean views from 3rd floor balcony, huge bathrooms, pantry with cold waters, coffee, ice, fruit and of course the warm cookies. This by far is the nicest hotel in Bar Harbor! It is worth every penny! We don't have kids so with the over 18 pool entry was a plus and... More
