We stopped in by chance on a last minute trip to Bar Harbor. The hotel was one of the best we have ever stayed in. Clean, expansive suites with the ultimate customer service. We will definitely return to this hotel. It is within walking distance of all of the Bar Harbor attractions. The pool and hot tub are nice additions... More

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is one of the best values on Mt. Desert Island. It is located right in town so you can walk to all the dining and waterfront locations. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed and the service was extremely good.

The Bar Harbor Grand is located right on Main Street near the main shopping and restaurants. Staff was extremely helpful and customer oriented. Room was cozy and more like a B&B than a hotel. This hotel has a little more character than some. Breakfast was good. Location is better closer to downtown. Also when my daughter left her charger and... More

Checked in for a 3 day vacation special which we did a number of years ago when it was first built. Package came with two meals for two at the Bar Harbor Inn "Reading Room" restaurant ( a value of over $300 because it included tax and tip ), a nature cruise which was very enjoyable, and the room which...

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is a well managed, clean hotel. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.
