The location for the Bar Harbor Grand is ideal for those who do not want to be right at the waterfront but still want to enjoy the shops and restaurants there. A chocolate cafe is directly across the street, as well as a fabulous new Mexican restaurant just steps away. Breakfast buffet is better than standard, fresh, with plenty of... More

We loved our stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel! The rooms were roomy and very clean. The staff was FABULOUS!!! Location was excellent - within walking distance of anything in Bar Harbor. And it was only a few minute drive to Acadia National Park.

I always like a nice get away hotel without breaking the bank. I have no small bills so what do we do. No credit cards. (stolen) to be sold to us. I love the small town feel in the area when we want to go out we put in extra of most everything.we saw that day.

Hotel has very good rates and excellent parking at no charge. You must lug your own luggage to the room and breakfast was good but nothing special. It is a bit of a walk to center of town but doable for an older couple like us.

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is a very attractive well kept property in an ideal location convenient to everything in Bar Harbor, but not quite as "grand' as its name may imply. Staff is very nice and the rooms are certainly very clean and comfortable, but the Bar Harbor Grand falls short in some little details that more luxurious properties... More

Myself and 2 family members traveled up to Bar Harbor/Acadia for a night in the off season and stayed here. There aren't a ton of options in the off season but the Grand Hotel offered what we were looking for- a suite with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. Easy check-in, parking, etc. Decor felt dated, but was clean, and the breakfast... More

My wife and I recently traveled to Bar Harbor and spent 3 nights in the Bar Harbor Grand. I have to say this is a truly terrific hotel.
