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

My husband, 11 year anniversary old twins, Maltipoo, Cavapoo & recently stayed at this hotel. The room was spectacular! We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with a wrap around deck.

Let me say first that we stayed here last June 2014 and it was perfect in every way that we looked forward to booking with this hotel again. Unfortunately, there were a few problems this time. The hotel is new and beautifully decorated. Parking is plentiful and convenient. Views are spectacular from all rooms facing harbor. Great access to restaurants,... More

We noticed many hotels, motels and B&Bs on the drive in to town which would be a pain to stay in as they are too far out of town. So check the location if you are choosing another establishment, despite names like "Harbor View". Parking in town is not easy, so staying right in Bar Harbor with parking is the... More

We stayed one night at the West Street Hotel before our room at a the Bass Cottage Inn became available. We paid for an Ocean Front King and were upgraded to a beautiful two room suite. The staff were very friendly and the furnishings were modern and nautical with very clean lines. But, the cost of our room including taxes... More

This hotel is beautiful. Modern high end touches everywhere. By far this hotel has it all. The views from the oceanside rooms are breathtaking. However if you are looking to get a good night's sleep it is not going to happen. It is on the main road in Bar Harbor, which is very convenient, however every truck comes down that... More

From the moment we walked in the door we were warmly greeted by front desk. She quickly had our room key ready & even gave us a complementary upgrade because they had a room available with an ocean view, without us even asking! The room was fantastic!
