We stayed for three nights at the West Street hotel after experiencing two disappointing nights at another hotel. The staff here was wonderful and helpful. The amenities were amazing. We loved the rooftop pool and the views! amenities included the Bar Harbor Club which housed a workout room, and sauna. It was wonderful.

This hotel offers wonderful views of the harbor and terrific amenities such as a small rooftop pool for adults and access to a large oceanside pool, kids' club and spa at the Bar Harbor Club across the street. They even provided treats for the pooch! If you are more in the mood for shopping, galleries, or whale watch cruises, simply... More

If looking for a hotel stay in Bar Harbor itself, you won't go wrong with West Street. It's convenient to trolley tours, whale/puffin boats, shopping, and more. We had a king room with a harbor view which was amazing. The room had a pull out couch, which we didn't need but thought that was a great option/offer to the room.... More

This is a centrally located hotel with a very helpful staff and very comfortable rooms. You can walk everywhere in town. We chose a non view room and faced the parking lot. It wasn't a problem. The desk people were very pleasant and helpful as are all the staff. The room was quiet and clean. There is a deck .... More

Everything rates excellent here. The staff was friendly, the room was great. They were able to accommodate me with a room on the 4th floor which was excellent. Loved the room and the walk in shower. But I rated it very good with these comments: There were a couple of things that brought it down to very good. 1) the... More

Awesome!!! We loved the West Street Hotel. Beautiful rooms, gorgeous views and a great location. Service was excellent and having access to the pools and spa across the street was a plus. It is the only place I will stay in Bar Harbor. Can't wait to get back.

Really enjoyed the complimentary coffee and cookies throughout the hotel and had very excellent service. The view from our fourth floor balcony had a great look at the harbor. Downstairs, Paddy's, was a great culinary experience. However, I wish they would advertise that the rooftop pool closes when the sun sets and is only available to those who are at... More

Just spent 3 days here and was extremely happy with service location and room. Place has the feel of being on a cruise ship and loved the balcony overlooking the harbor. Rooftop pool for adults is spectacular. Mark was at the front desk and was friendly and informative. Get there before late October for it closes for the season.

We spent 2 nights at West Street Hotel. We had a lovely room with a comfy king bed. Really enjoyed the guest pantry with coffee, water, fresh fruit and evening treats. One thing I totally loved was the bath products. The Opal Collection shampoo, conditioner, soaps and lotions were amazing! I wish there was a kiosk in the lobby where... More

I loved this hotel. Get the oceanfront rooms. They are well worht it and the other rooms face the parkinglot. The view is of the harbor and Porcupine Islands. You are in walking distance of the stores and restaurants. The only reason we used the car was to go to to the park. The rooftop infinity pool is not tooo... More
