We stayed at Bar Harbor Grand last week for five nights when we vacationed at Bar Harbor. As the other reviews described, the hotel is located at an excellent location, it's on the main street and takes at most 10 minutes to walk to the harbor, plenty of shops and restaurants all within short walking distance. We actually like its... More

We stayed here with our 11 and 14 year old daughters. This is a very nice hotel. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very pleasant. The breakfast was really nice- it had an ample selection of food and plenty of seating. What we didn't realize when we booked this hotel was that it has a great location.... More

Very nice hotel. Nice location and very clean. Wait staff was courteous. Breakfast was basic but good and they didn't run out of anything. Would stay again. I don't know what else I can say to get to 200 characters but you should stay here.

My wife and I were very well cared for during our two night stay. The location was not with a view of the ocean but it was only a two minute walk to shopping eating and that great ocean park. The staff was always courteous and helpful with all our "tourist" questions. Will be back soon.

We always strive to meet our guests needs and very happy we accomplished this for you. The location is awesome, especially in the summer when it is very difficult to find a parking spot downtown. You can walk to everything as mentioned. We look forward to your return. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

Very good alternative to Bar Harbor Inn. Well located in town. Close to restaurants. 5 minutes from Acadia NP. We walked everywhere. Staff is very helpful. Great breakfast. Rooms are well appointed. Very clean. We'll come back.

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel the third week in July which is busy in Bar Harbor. We arrived mid day to find our room already prepared for us. Parking is a major issue in Bar Harbor during the summer and it was nice to have this included in our room. The hotel is clean, staff are friendly... More

Just spent 7 days at this hotel for our July vacation . The service is wonderful, rooms are clean and large. Staff couldn't be nicer and the location is perfect to escape the crowds. Pool is heated and they just installed a new hottub. Family friendly. We have been staying here since it opened and wouldn't go anywhere else. Can't... More

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor. Had searched on trip advisor for the right hotel. This was the perfect pick. The hotel is within walking distance to all the shops. We only stayed one night but we were very impressed with the room and the hotel itself. When checking in, the girl at the desk was very polite... More

We stayed for 3 nights and found it very nice - great location and comfortable clean rooms. The breakfast is the usual array of processed foods - though nothing is cooked/made in the hotel. They have waffles, french toast, eggs etc which are all just microwaved in the hotel. That is fine though the kids do load up on sugar... More
