Was expecting a small, older room, etc....BUT! Turns out, the room was very spacious, clean, quiet and lots of room to spread out. Bed was VERY comfortable, also. The complimentary breakfast had a LOT to choose from. Was very impressed, as some "complimentary" breakfasts are limited. The center of town is just a couple of blocks away. A nice walk.... More

The breakfast is good, hot and fresh. Eggs, bacon, oatmeal, cereals, yogurt, granola and more were available each morning. Hot coffee and tea are available 24 hours a day. Parking is... More

This is the Island for hiking, over 100 miles of carriage trails as well. I am privileged to have a wonderful staff that are always pleasant to our guests. And our updated breakfasts certainly meets the needs of most. Another great plus is our location and free parking. We very much hope you will come see us again. Sincerely, Dennis... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is located so that you can walk to the harbor, restaurants, shops, etc. The two gentlemen at the front desk were extremely helpful. In fact, one of them advised us that Cadillac Mountain was fogged in and kept us from making the trip at that time. Our room was in the... More

I certainly appreciate the expression wonderful. Thank you so much. I show most of my guest when they are planning to go up Cadillac how to tell if it is fogged in.

The Bar Harbor Grande was a great hotel in a convenient location at a reasonable rate. The front desk was friendly and housekeeping was efficient. Rooms were a good size. Breakfast was more than adequate. Will stay again.

Easy access to all of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. This hotel is a reproduction of an old Bar Harbor Hotel with the amenities of a new one. The room was spacious and clean and comfortable beds. Nice breakfast bar. Would stay here again.

Guest find it interesting to see the pictures of the original Rodick House (built back in the late 1800's). Of course this is the exterior only. Thank-you for mentioning that internal, we are very modern. Clean, spacious and comfortable beds are certainly very important and we also appreciate your mentioning that. As I mention to my guests, very difficult to... More

I highly recommend this facility.. The only thing needed is an update. Its time to see what the lobbies and rooms of great hotels look like across the world and do that to all of the hotels in bar harbor. Not just this one. It's a huge investment so it's sure understanding if it takes a while for this to... More

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor and the hotel served our needs. We got the "Escape" package which offers choices on what you want to see. It is a perfect introduction to a "new to us" area. Breakfast was adequate to start the day.

This is our third time staying at the Bar Harbor Grand and have never been disappointed. Great Service from Desk Clerks to Housekeeping (Cleanliness A+). Excellent location, walking distance to restaurants and attractions. Continental breakfast was very good and well worth the price of the stay in Bar Harbor.
