The hotel was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and it was convenient to have a mini fridge. The bathroom was large and we had plenty of towels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and lots of spaces to sit and eat. Although the off season, I didn't see anyone else on our floor. Great hotel for... More

For the past several years, we've made an annual trip to this hotel for fall foliage. It's one of our favorites. The service is excellent and very friendly. Rooms are always clean. It's hard to ask for more.

On 3/8/13, I spoke to Dennis, the manager to reserve a two bedroom unit for my family of 5. I was quoted $315.00/night. Imagine our surprise and disappointment in late August when we arrived after a 6 hr ride to find our room had been given to another tourist. We thought we had guaranteed the room, but we were told...

Quiet, clean, nice hotel. It is located in the center of town. We walked to the beach and through the quaint town. Walked to restaurant for a nice lobster dinner. A standard continental breakfast was prepared. Dining area was clean.

We have been to Bar Harbor many times, and were very pleased to have "discovered" the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel for our recent stay. The location and free on-site parking were perfect for exploring the town on foot - close but not in the midst of the cruise-ship crowds. Room was clean and very comfortable, and complimentary breakfast was just... More

The accommodations were fine and the location very convenient but the breakfast was terrible. We ate out for breakfast every day after our first experience there. This hotel would be very good if the breakfast buffet was edible.

The room was nice and large, clean, and nicely furnished. Continental breakfast was better than I expected. The staff was pleasant. I loved being right in town to enjoy the shopping, dining and activities just steps away from where we were lodging!
