This is my first review on TripAdvisor, and this hotel definitely deserves an excellent review. This was our first visit to Bar Harbor and the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel, and it was delightful! Each interaction with the staff was pleasant and informative. We booked a 3-night package, which turned out to be an excellent value. Our family of two adults... 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

This was our first time in Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. I believe we were at one of the nicest locations in Bar Harbor, far enough away from the crowds of people but close enough to easily walk wherever we wished to visit. This hotel has a friendly and very helpful staff, great breakfast, large clean rooms, and even rocking... More

Power went out during Arthur at an affiliated Bar Harbor hotel and would remain out for over 15 hours. The Bar Harbor Grand was very accomodating and we were able to continue our Bar Harbor stay for the remaining two nights at the same rate and in a great hotel. Thank You Bar Harbor Grand.

This very spacious, very centrally located hotel is near all there is to see and do at Bar Harbor. The employees were very helpful and friendly. The lobster at Cherrystones was reasonable and very good.

We spent 3 nights at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel and found it was perfectly located to explore Acadia National Park. We were able to drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain in 15 minutes one morning for sunrise (highly recommended). It is right in the heart of Bar Harbor so lunch/dinner is easy. The free breakfast was perfect each... More

Thank you for commenting on our location. It truly is just a 15 minute drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain. Location is very important. So difficult during the busy season to find parking. As mentioned our parking is free and you can easily walk the entire town from here and even catch a free shuttle at the Village Green... More
