We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and roomy for our family of four. It is in the heart of Bar Harbor and within very close proximity to Acadia. We enjoyed walking to all of the local Bar Harbor shops and restaurants. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and... More

Spacious rooms, convenient location, and excellent staff. This was our third stay here, and we will stay again the next time we visit Bar Harbor. There is just no reason to stay anywhere else. All in town attractions are close enough to walk to. The hotel has plenty of free parking. Acadia National Park is just a few minutes away.

Thanks for the comment on the rooms and my staff. Those are certainly what aids in receiving return guests. Our location and free parking is also an asset, as you mentioned.... More

A very comfy hotel in the heart of BH. Rooms seemed slightly larger than average hotel rooms and the king size bed was very comfy. Bathrooms very clean and modern. Good options for complimentary breakfast. Staff friendly. Would def return. Directly across from Blaze restaurant and Choco-Latte coffee bar.

Very cozy place. Somewhat reminded me of my grandmothers house, but clean and well kept. I really liked the large bathrooms and how clean everything seemed to be. We slept great in the large king size beds as well. Very scenic spot and close to Acadia National Park.

We are pleased that you found your room cozy and, of course, clean. As mentioned, our bathrooms are quite spacious. Comfort is also important and our beds are very comfortable so thanks for mentioning that also. Our location is so beneficial and just a short drive to the Park. Please come back.

We stayed at Bar Harbor in the off season--towards the beginning of November (2014)--and were very pleased with the location, tidiness and quality. The location is ideal both for exploring Acadia Nat'l. Park and strolling down main street to explore the cute shops and local restaurants. Would recommend to family and friends!

Found this hotel online and also saw while driving around. The name grand suits this hotel just fine. It was such an improvement from our previous night in Bar Harbor. The staff was so helpful when we asked about places to eat. This was the end of the season so several of the places recommended were closed. It was a... More

Thank you for your wonderful review...it is very much appreciated. We are so glad you found us. I loved your description of our beds and bedding "dreamy". Sleeping is what vacation is all about. It puzzles me that we have received a few complaints on our breakfast, however, a frequent traveler as yourself reassures us how wonderful it is. It... More

The location of this hotel was on the end of main street, and it had a large parking lot on site. It was easily walkable to the other end by the wharf and adjoining side streets.

It had a great location. The room was nice and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the air would turn off automatically at night which made sleeping difficult. If we knew we would have gotten up and readjusted it.
