My wife and I enjoyed our weekend stay at the BHG. We were impressed with the location, cleanliness, friendliness of staff, and overall amenities. Our only complaint would be the firmness of the mattress - too hard for our comfort. We probably wouldn't stay again because of that, but we wouldn't dissuade anyone from staying there. It is a fine... More

Very clean old-style hotel with charm and location. Walk to everything in Bar Harbor. Good early-season rate with large continental breakfast with many options included. Won't do much better for your money for early season.

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of November for 3 nights when it snowed. We had a room on the highest floor and it was quite specious and comfortable. The fact that the hotel has laundry facility on the basement was quite useful. The room was nice and clean and it had a table with two chair when... More

When we travel we find it more exciting to "wing it" with hotel reservations, which can be exciting and risky. We thought we were about to strike out on finding accommodations during a road trip to Bar Harbor, ME. Bar Harbor Grand Hotel to the rescue.

My daughter and I stayed at the Grand for 10 days last September and we loved it. Rooms are spacious, clean and very pretty. Staff was friendly, helpful and always smiling. The breakfast was delicious, it was a great start to the day. I can't wait to come back this September.

This place was a gem to stay at. The rooms were clean and spacious with a nice staff to add! It was quiet, and the location were steps away from shops and places to eat. Just a short walk down to the water too! We will definitely be returning here on our next trip!

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.
