The location is close to Bar Harbor and all its attractions. The rooms were great. The staff was so helpful. They provided maps and recommendations. The hotel is great.

We spent three nights on a whirlwind tour of Acadia National Forest and Bar Harbor and used the Bar Harbor Grand as our base camp. There are literally dozens of hotels in the Acadia area, and we chose the Grand based on a combination of the generally positive reviews from family travelers, it's location, and a price point in the...

Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast provided was more than adequate to start the day and I thought the coffee was great. The location of the hotel was perfect, only a short walk to the water and all the stores and restaurants in Bar Harbor.

Lovely spacious rooms, everything very clean and tidy yet has old world charm. The bathrooms were super clean and updated and the water pressure was excellent...best shower I've ever had at a hotel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The included breakfast was another nice touch that sets Bar Harbor Grand a cut above other hotels we looked at... More

We were in York for a couple of weeks and wanted to do a little side trip. This was an excellent hotel for a 2 night stay. Great location and easy walking distance to downtown.

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is a pleasant place to stay in Bar Harbor -- downtown but not quite in the midst of all the hubbub. It is not fancy, but comfortable, basically Holiday Inn or Hampton Inn quality. The included continental breakfast is quite ample and is really more than strictly "continental." Staff, from the front desk to housekeepers,... More

We stayed in room 405 on 7/19/15 and 7/20/1. From day one, the AC unit in our room leaked. Actually, water poured out of the unit onto the dresser below. We noticed it right after showering. My husband went to the front desk and told the guy what is going on. The guy was dismissive and did not offer a... More

The hotel is conveniently located in Bar Harbor. It is within easy walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and the harbor itself, and has loads of character. The staff is friendly and helpful. We definitely would stay here again.

Great location, in the heart of the village. We walked everywhere. The enhanced breakfast was also a plus. My only complaint is that the wi-fi connection didn't work (to be fair, I never asked for help, but we've stayed in piles of hotels with similar procedures and never had a problem).

Not the best hotel in the area! The rooms (we saw 2) were very dark, clean but needing a makeover. The breakfast was very limited and each day there were 2 choices of hot food all of which came out of a packet. Location is great but would not recommend.
