This hotel is in a great location. It is very near the shops and restaurants and the village green. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. They directed us to a shoreline walk which was not readily apparent if you had never visited Bar Harbor before. The room was very nice and clean. Having stayed in other renovated grand hotels,...

I reserved a room online in this hotel for 2 night during the first weekend of August for my husband, son and I. It was to be a celebration as my husband received a clean bill of health after having two heart attacks. I noticed a message saying my credit card would be charged immediately for one night stay which... More

This hotel was a great location. It was right in the center of Bar Harbor. So it was walking distance from all the local bar and restaurants, which was great. It was also about a 5 minute drive from Acadia National Park. Clean hotel and was just perfect for what we needed. Nothing super fancy, but the convenience was worth... More

We all appreciate the comments on our location. As I repeatedly mention, it is so difficult to find parking downtown. As stated, you can walk to everything and a short drive to Acadia National Park. Please come back. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

We walked in without a reservation after driving by and noticing the hotel's location in the midst of everything Bar Harbor. We were not disappointed. Our room was spacious and overlooked the restaurant next door where a guitarist was serenading diners. We were able to walk to the shore as well as all the local shops and restaurants.

We stayed here for the 4th of July weekend. This is a newer property located on Main Street and within walking distance of almost everything in Bar Harbor and that is crucial as there is almost no parking to be found. Room was large, clean, with very comfortable beds. There is a great outdoor pool that truly was heated and... More

This is the busy season and we so often hear guest commenting on our location and the fact that you don't have to drive downtown to look for a parking spot (which is next to impossible this time of year). Thanks for bring this out. The next time you come, we will have our new hot tub up and running... More

Rooms were large and nice. There was a lot of noise in the halls at night! There was a wedding the weekend we stayed and the guests thought nothing of loud and long hallway get togethers at 2:30 in the morning. Free breakfast was your typical average hotel chain buffet - nothing special. Real silverware would have been nice. Good... More

The staff was helpful and our accommodations were nice -- very clean and comfortable. Excellent location -- walking distance to everything. Breakfast was very good. Would stay here again if we return to Bar Harbor. We were able to leave our vehicle after checking out and walk around downtown. Very handicapped accessible.

The Bar Harbor Grand is in an excellent location close to shops & restaurants. It was very clean, staff extremely courteous & the free breakfast was great, very nicely laid out. Our room was huge (king bed room) & quite comfortable. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Bar Harbor.
