When we travel we find it more exciting to "wing it" with hotel reservations, which can be exciting and risky. We thought we were about to strike out on finding accommodations during a road trip to Bar Harbor, ME. Bar Harbor Grand Hotel to the rescue. It truly was a grand place to stay, convenient to restaurants, shops, tours and... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Grand for 10 days last September and we loved it. Rooms are spacious, clean and very pretty. Staff was friendly, helpful and always smiling. The breakfast was delicious, it was a great start to the day. I can't wait to come back this September.

This place was a gem to stay at. The rooms were clean and spacious with a nice staff to add! It was quiet, and the location were steps away from shops and places to eat. Just a short walk down to the water too! We will definitely be returning here on our next trip!

Stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand in late October 2014. Two night special including one dinner at Bar Harbor Inn's Reading Room. Breakfast included both mornings at Bar Harbor Grand. Excellent value. Room was very nice. Large with windows on two sides. Walking distance to Bar Harbor downtown. We will certainly stay at the hotel again.

A good location, close to Bar Harbor's shops, restaurants and sites. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The continental breakfast was tasty and adequate and the reasonably fast WiFi connection a boon. If time allows, take a drive round the Acadia National Park. However, if this is not possible, at least walk down to the harbour. The 'Shore... More
