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.

My wife and I live in Maine and wanted a quick (and not too expensive) weekend getaway to Bar Harbor since our daughter was out of town. We priced and read reviews of many other places in Bar Harbor. The Bar Harbor Grand was semi-reasonably priced for this time of year and got good reviews. The room was very clean... More

Just got back from a vacation to Bar Harbor Maine and had a great time. We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel and have to say it was fabulous. All the folks at the front desk were so helpful and friendly. They truly demonstrated top class service. The location of this hotel is perfect as well. Our room was... More

The hotel was great and is in a perfect location. You can walk to the harbor and all the many restaurants and shops. The staff was fantastic - very helpful with dinner recommendations and directions. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bar Harbor.

My wife and I stayed at the Bar Grand Hotel for four nights, arriving Wednesday 7/15, leaving Sunday 7/19. Our overall experience at this hotel was all positive. The hotel property itself is extremely nice and well kept. It's very pleasing to the eye. The staff that we encounterd were all very polite and accommodating. My wife had a small... More

I got a really good rate in prime season due to a computer glitch. They honored the price without hesitation so I completely trust them in the customer service department. The hotel does use the word "Grand" which can be a bit misleading but it is a nice place to stay. I believe this hotel is a rebuilt version of... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom on the 4th floor. It was quiet other than a little road noise. The rooms were very clean and modern. My only suggestion would be to provide a wet bar for a room that size. The location is great for walking every where in downtown Bar Harbor. Staff was friendly and helpful. I did... More
