The service in this hotel was some of the best I have ever had. Everyone that I dealt with went above and beyond their call of duty. From front of the house to back of the house they listen ...and they solved any issues ( and I had a few) I was dealing with. The breakfast was more than ample... More

Overall a great hotel. It was clean, the room was very nice and large. The breakfast was even better than I had anticipated. Food was great and there was a great selection. It was a nice touch to have the coffee and juice available 24 hours. The seating for the breakfast was one of the best we have seen, there... More

Our family spends a week on Mt. Desert every year, renting cottages. This year, the cottage we chose wasn't available all the days we wanted, so we stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel for the first night of our trip. I'd always thought it looked like a nice place to stay, and it definitely was. The room was much... More

Visiting Maine and Acadia National Park, a stay in Bar Harbor is a must. The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel was picked because of location. Within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the harbor. Courteous staff. Clean, comfortable and quiet room. We were not disappointed with our stay.

We stay here every year. One block from the downtown (little) park, which is ringed with shops and restaurants. Also about one mile from an entrance to Acadia National Park ("ANP") and Park Loop Road. The location is perfect and so is the hotel. Tour the sites of ANP - drive Park Loop Road or take the tour buses from... More

This was a good reasonably priced hotel in downtown Bar Harbor. It was not on the water and did not have views but it was in walking distance to all of Bar Harbor. Don't be fooled by their add is is not brand new but 10 years old. For the price it is an excellent place to stay. The breakfast... More

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor and it was wonderful. After searching for the perfect hotel we decided on the Grand Hotel. We came in very late our first night and we were greeted with a friendly face who quickly got us settled. We were in the one bedroom suite that has a bedroom with a queen bed... More
