We visited at the end of July 2015. We absolutely loved Acadia and Bar Harbor! An East Coast treasure! I also can't say enough great things about the Bar Harbor Grand. The cleanliness, comfortable beds and new furnishings made this a great stay for this very picky mom and traveler. The Bar Harbor Inn was too pricey for this family... More

This is a very nice hotel and it is very well located, you can pretty much walk all the town from here. Breakfast is very good, with several options and it is included in hotel rate. Special mention to Isabel from the front desk who help us a lot with good recommendations of where to go as we arrived when... More

Stayed here on our recent trip. Booked a two room suite and found it to be just what we wanted. The room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel was just the right mix of old ambiance and modern luxuries. The only small problem we had was at check in and it really wasn't much of a problem. The desk clerk... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights to spend time at Acadia. Hotel was very well-located, and parking was not a problem despite it being the weekend of the marathon. Rooms were clean, and an adequate breakfast was included with our stay. Front desk staff were very helpful, and their recommendations for a couple of restaurants were on-point. Pool... More

The hotel and room were very clean. Could use some décor updates and no real bells and whistles but met our basic needs. The price was reasonable for the accommodations. If you're looking for a luxury/romantic stay probably not the place for you.

The location of the hotel is great; it is right in the center of town so you have easy access to all the shops, restaurants and the harbor walk. We had a corner room overlooking main street. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a great hotel.
