We recently stayed here and were very impressed for the price. It was not a planned stay, we just happened upon the vacancy sign and the price was right, just over $200. The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating with extra towels and a cot for our family of 5. The kids loved the heated... More

The breakfast,which is included with the room, is hot and filling. We had a package that included a 2hour tour of Acadia National Park, dinner for 2 at the lovely... More

Very nice comfortable, clean hotel located in the heart of Bar Harbor. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Right on Main Street near the shops and a short drive to Acadia National Park. A 7 to 9 minute walk to the harbor. Plenty of restaurants ans shops nearby and relatively easy to get to.

Your comment on our location is truly appreciated by most. Being able to walk to everything in town is truly helpful, especially during the summer months. Parking is such an issue downtown. We are so happy you found you accommodations comfortable and clean. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

The location was great at the heart of it all. However for the price i thought the breakfast was bad. I have stayed in multiple hotels that had great breakfasts but for almost $300 a night it shoulda been a little better. Next time we will either stay in a cheaper hotel or opt for a little more and get... More

Sadly some to not enjoy our breakfast but most do. We would have gladly recommended breakfast spots that might have suited you. Happily my staff cared for your needs and you found out location to be of benefit. We do appreciate you staying with us very much. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

Location was very convenient, staff at the desk was helpful with directions and suggestions for getting into Acadia. Breakfast was terrible. Generic items and nothing that says "Maine". Coffee ran out and staff was on break no where to be found. If you like white bread, white english muffins, thawed waffles, sara lee "blueberry" muffins with food color, fruit loops,... More

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.

The room you had is often request. During the day, closing the shears works for most and of course the curtains at night. We would always strive to meet requests for location of rooms, however, not always possible. The breakfast seems to meet most peoples needs. We actually strive to mention the shore path to guests that are making inquiries.... More
