Great place to stay, walking distance to all stores and places to eat. Far enough away to be quite.. Really large and spacious room, very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Clean, well kept place.

This hotel is a newly constructed facility designed to replicate one of the traditional Bar Harbor hotels. In my opinion, it doesn't work architecturally. That said, the hotel itself is comfortable, extremely well located near the center of this wonderful tourist town. The breakfast was advertised as continental, but was full breakfast buffet (much better). Everything was excellent, with the... More

The staff were super nice and efficient! Accommodations were perfect - the room was big with large window that opened to get the fresh sea air! Location excellent - downtown Bar Harbor. We walked everywhere! We were very impressed with this property!

Thank you for your recent stay with us. Are rooms are large than the average hotel rooms as mentioned. My staff continue maintain our rooms to our guests pleasure. We do find that many would just as soon come to the breakfast area to get coffee as to making it in the room. Appreciate your mention that at the convenience... More

We recently stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel during a coastal visit to Maine. The hotel staff were pleasant and quite helpful in providing recommendations on local restaurants. The hotel accommodations were clean and very comfortable. The hotel is at a good location in reference to the town of Bar Harbor. You can park in the hotel parking lot... More

I am so sorry you were faced with problems with wifi. There are times when people will be downloaded games and movies which can use 2-4 million kilobytes and will slow down the speed extremely. We continue to try to work on that. However, we are very pleased you enjoyed the hotel and the excellent location and breakfast. Please come... More

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand in early October 2014. We got the getaway package that included a Lobster Bake and dinner at the Reading Room at the Bar Harbor Inn, as well as a cruise on the Margaret Todd (reviewed separately). Parking is tight but adequate. Check-in was easy. The room was clean and well-appointed. We especially liked... More

Thanks for staying with us. The parking is a feature that is important when the town is busy. Sorry the breakfast wasn't that enjoyable. We can certainly recommend breakfast houses at another time. The location is always appreciated as once parked, you can walk to everything. Hope to seen you in the future. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

Stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand last Sept.; our only complaint was the breakfast selection. This year's stay was even better, they've improved the breakfast and added a number of hot items including an egg selection and meat (sausage, bacon). Simply put this is the best deal in town; great location right on Main St., very nice facilities, and great... More

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel for 3 nights and loved it. It was our first time in town and we loved the convenience of being able to park our car and walk (or get a shuttle) everywhere. Parking is at a premium in town and the streets are very busy, so walking to shops and restaurants was... More

I must start by stating, we have an elevator in the south wing, where you checked in. Because of the design, there was no way to put an elevator in the north wing. The HC room you were in is like all double queen bedded rooms, but the bathroom is larger. Yes the parking is free and great not having... More
