The hotel in on main street in Bar Harbor but is away from the congestion of the main downtown area. It is an easy walk to many restaurants, stores, and tour events. It is an easy drive to Acadia National Park. Good breakfast and friendly people. Room was large and very clean. Does not have good internet connection if that... More

The hotel is located within walking distance of everything in Bar Harbor. Our room was very clean, the staff, especially Dennis, were all very helpful and nice, and great continental breakfast. We came for our honeymoon and definitely recommend this hotel for anyone!

The Bar Harbor Grand just fit he bill for us. Very friendly people, the place is immaculate, room was much better than the pictures, and the breakfast was fine. At the price point, they are not going to make you blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. But if you are good with oatmeal, cereal, institution eggs and sausage, fresh fruit, muffins... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location, with an easy walk to the center of town for restaurants, shopping, or even the shore walk along the harbor. This was key as we have 3 young children. The staff was always so nice and friendly; the 2-bedroom was immaculate and ideal for our family of 5, and the complimentary breakfast was... More

We are so pleased that you and your family stayed with us. We truly enjoy our families and the two bedroom units work out very well for them. Plenty of fun things to do and I enjoy walking through the breakfast room and seeing the young ones enjoying their breakfast. We look forward to your return. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark,... More

Great hotel. Excellent breakfast included. Not on the waterfront, but who cares. We were more interested in Acadia than shopping. This hotel is connected with the Bar Harbor Inn on the waterfront and one can book restaurants and spa services if that is important from here. Very comfortable and quiet. Within walking distance of anything. Great value.

1st visit to Maine and Bar Harbor. My wife decided to change reservations, and boy am I glad she did. The Grand was just that. Perfect location for all activities, restaurants, shopping, etc. We could walk eveywhere - except Acadia National Park. (But you could walk to a free bus that took you there!) We stayed for 4 nights.

I just love that word "Awesome." Thanks so much for that expression. Sometimes in our business one forgets it is the hospitality business. Thus it should be expected that staff would be friendly and helpful. I am so appreciative of my staff that they do this and the appreciation that our guests get from their expressions. Cleanliness and comfort should... More

Spent three nights at this hotel and found it to be very nice. Had concerns regarding our first floor room with road noise, but that was not the case! Never heard anything. Enjoyed the close proximity to town, didn't need our vehicle for much of our stay. Would absolutely stay again!

Thank you for staying with us and your comments on the 1st floor rooms. We appreciate you comment on our location as well as during the busy time it is such a asset as parking downtown is very difficult. We absolutely hope that you will return. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More
