Clean, comfortable, and well appointed rooms. Good breakfast. Great location relative to downtown Bar Harbor. We actually stayed in 2 different rooms, since we decided to stay an extra night - both were great. Only complaint - internet service stinks - it just cannot handle the number of users in the hotel. Everything else was great.

Loved everything about the hotel....the staff, the rooms, the breakfast, etc. Slept great! My favorite - the relaxing front porch. We also took advantage of the washer/dryer. Our kids loved the warm pool and hot tub. Can't wait to return!

GREAT LOCATION right on the edge of downtown with everything within easy walking distance, but not right in the middle of the traffic and crowds. Easy access to island shuttle, village green, shore path, shops, & restaurants. Attractive, comfortable rooms with QUIET air conditioning. Very helpful staff at front desk. Comfortable lobby. Nice front porch at street level with rockers.... More

The Bar Harbor Grand is ideally located and only a few minute walk from all the action of Bar Harbor. Our room was spacious rooms and bright with a lot of windows. This turned out to be the only downside of our stay as we were given the first floor room on the left corner of the hotel. This room... More

We stayed two nights at the Bar Harbor Grand. I am torn between an average and very good rating. The place is old but pretty well kept, the staff was very nice and helpful. It is nothing fancy despite the name but the location is great. Just a couple blocks from the Village Green. The rooms are pretty spacious. They... More

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel for 4 nights as part of a 2 week holiday exploring New York, the Maine coast and Boston. We chose this hotel on the back of good Trip Advisor reviews and its great location in Bar Harbor. We booked from the UK back in December and Dennis, the manager, was helpful with... More

There will be a familiar theme for my reviews: accommodating a 6'2" 15 year old in a family of 5 is difficult. This room (two rooms actually) was big, but we still needed a roll-away. Still, the place was clean and we were provided everything we needed. Location, location, location. The hotel is located right on Main St in Bar... More

We are glad we were able to accommodate your family. I'm guessing you were referring to one of our two bedroom units. Cleanliness should be priority in hotels, and we always strive for that goal throughout. The mention of our location is done so frequent and we appreciate hearing it over and over as it is a great feature. We... More

We had a wonderful stay at Bar Harbor Grand. Our room was very spacious and clean. We had a view of the pool which looked very inviting. We were only in town for one day but the location was perfectly situated for walking to all of the lovely shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor. My family enjoyed the hotel breakfast... More

Now you must bring your family back so your family can jump in the pool. Bar Harbor has so much to offer (Acadia National Park is a big draw). Most truly enjoy our breakfast and we are pleased you are amongst them. We truly do hope to see you and your family again. Please return. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

The hotel is located on the main street but towards the end of it so it is quiet. Everything in town is within walking distance. It is near the harbor and the Village Green where you can get the public free buses to major sightseeing places. We were greeted every day very warmly by Norman who made us feel very... More

Quiet for resting and short walk to restaurants and shops. Parking and good breakfast a bonus. Grandkids loved the pool. Rooms are clean and fresh, nicely furnished and beds are heaven after a long day of traveling.
