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

I spent 5 nights in this hotel in late May . Everything was perfect . Some tips : prefer a room on the upper floors with sea view and a central location in the corridor and away from the coffee machine ( noise ) ; not look for a restaurant outside the hotel , because the restaurant is the best...

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! I have zero complaints about this hotel and can only have nice things... More

When we checked in, there was no porter in sight to help with luggage, and my wife and I had to struggle with one of those big, heavy hotel luggage carts to get the bags up to the second floor. The unsmiling receptionist at desk had no comment, much less an apology. The room was nice enough, well designed and... More

IT'S MOSTLY ALL GOOD... We chose this hotel at the last minute based on availability and the positive reviews on TA. The TA reviews are right on the mark on the hotel's many strong and even its few weak points. But, we agree with the majority of the reviewers that this hotel is a winner. We stayed for two nights...

upscale, quiet ( no noisy packs of kids or raucous wedding parties) terrific location, excellent room decor and amenities. Kind of like an "Aloft" or "Element" but certainly the nicest in "Baa HaaBaa." Can't beat the location or the view and the rooftop infinity pool is a special addition.

This was a very nice hotel right on the West St. with some very nice views if you had a room in the right section of the hotel and on a higher floor since there was a tall building across the street. Having people board excursion buses right below your room was a disappointment. I suggest they move that bus... More
