Stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand in late October 2014. Two night special including one dinner at Bar Harbor Inn's Reading Room. Breakfast included both mornings at Bar Harbor Grand. Excellent value. Room was very nice. Large with windows on two sides. Walking distance to Bar Harbor downtown. We will certainly stay at the hotel again.

Having family in the area I try to visit at least a couple times a year. Found the Bar Harbor Grand when looking for a hotel still open in November a few years ago. Have stayed there a few times, mostly off season, and always had a good experience. The front desk folks have always been welcoming and informative and... More

A good location, close to Bar Harbor's shops, restaurants and sites. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The continental breakfast was tasty and adequate and the reasonably fast WiFi connection a boon. If time allows, take a drive round the Acadia National Park. However, if this is not possible, at least walk down to the harbour. The 'Shore... More

Spacious rooms, convenient location, and excellent staff. This was our third stay here, and we will stay again the next time we visit Bar Harbor. There is just no reason to stay anywhere else. All in town attractions are close enough to walk to. The hotel has plenty of free parking. Acadia National Park is just a few minutes away.

A very comfy hotel in the heart of BH. Rooms seemed slightly larger than average hotel rooms and the king size bed was very comfy. Bathrooms very clean and modern. Good options for complimentary breakfast. Staff friendly. Would def return. Directly across from Blaze restaurant and Choco-Latte coffee bar.

Very cozy place. Somewhat reminded me of my grandmothers house, but clean and well kept. I really liked the large bathrooms and how clean everything seemed to be. We slept great in the large king size beds as well. Very scenic spot and close to Acadia National Park.
