A very nice hotel - and wonderful location. Pricier than we generally go, but I waited too long to book, so the more mid-priced options were gone. But we splurged, and loved it. BTW, make sure your visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia includes tidepooling, at a spot like Wonderland (near Bass Harbor Head lighthouse)!

The best thing about this property is its convenient location at the edge of town, within easy walking distance of restaurants. The room was clean and fairly well appointed. The free breakfast, while providing variety, was not very good; most of it was pre-prepared food, much like one would get at a Hampton Inn. Two issues: there is only one... More

We planned this trip in advance not knowing the lay of the land in Bar Harbor. This location was perfectly situated at the end of the strip. End to end is about a 10-15 minute walk making everything accessible. The hotel has a heated pool and was located in their parking lot. Not the most picturesque but clearly not what... More

We were there for my neice's wedding. The staff was most helpful. Room was cleaned early and staff did a good job. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bar Harbor. We walked to shops and restaurants.

Booked from Tripadvisor recommendations and found the hotel in an excellent location, good value, ok breakfast and very good desk staff. Bar Harbor is very touristy and this hotel is located on the edge of that area, a good things.

Very nice hotel. We were here for a two night weekend stay. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Easy walking access to town. We did the 2 night package with Nature Cruise and dinner at the Reading Room, and enjoyed both.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is far enough away from the center of activity in Bar Harbor as to be quiet in the evenings, but close enough that you can walk to everything in Bar Harbor. Once we checked in to the hotel, we never used the car until we checked out. The Village Green... More

We continue to appreciate our guests mentioning our location. As you mentioned, once you park (free parking) you truly never have to move your car. You can walk to everything in town and take advantage of the free shuttle. Glad you enjoyed the milk. Most enjoy the breakfast, however, as I'm sure you found, there are many restaurants serving breakfast... More

Right in town, close to everything in Bar Harbor, and plenty of privacy, cleanliness, friendly staff. Pool is located in the lot, and that made it better, because it did not get crowded, which gave us plenty of privacy and opportunities to have fun with the kids, without worrying about disturbing others. The room was wonderful, comfortable and very clean.... More

Thank you for bringing your family to our hotel. Our families always enjoy the pool area and plenty of room for the parents to sit and watch the children if they wish not to swim or get in the hot tub. Thank you for commenting on our location, cleanliness of the rooms and my friendly staff. I hope this will... More

The Bar Harbor Grande is the best! We love the ease of being right smack in the middle of everything. The rooms are large and the staff is wonderful. From making dinner reservations for us to the free breakfast, this is always our first choice for our annual vacation to Bar Harbor.

As other reviewers have mentioned this hotel is comparable to a mid level Hampton Inn, except the breakfasts at Hampton Inn and most other similar hotels are much better than than the breakfast at the Bar Harbor Grand. The breakfast at the Grand is not so Grand. The fruit salad is canned and rather disgusting. If you like cold cereal... More
