Spent three nights at this hotel and found it to be very nice. Had concerns regarding our first floor room with road noise, but that was not the case! Never heard anything. Enjoyed the close proximity to town, didn't need our vehicle for much of our stay. Would absolutely stay again!

Thank you for staying with us and your comments on the 1st floor rooms. We appreciate you comment on our location as well as during the busy time it is such a asset as parking downtown is very difficult. We absolutely hope that you will return. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

Bar Harbor was one of our "bucket list" locations ... And to arrive in town to find this charming hotel started the trip off perfectly. Yes, it's a hotel but it had the feel of a 5-star Inn. The rooms were spacious, two wing back chairs with table (and wifi), a small refrigerator (which ran quietly), very comfortable mattress, and... More

Hurray for "bucket lists." Thanks so much for your description of our hotel, rooms and various amenities. The cleanliness of the rooms should always be expected. I am so thankful that I have such a proficient cleaning staff. The locations is truly a plus. We anxiously look forward to your return. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

This hotel is conveniently located--within walking distance of all restaurants and shops. The front desk staff is extremely knowledgeable about the area and recommended many restaurants and thing to see and do. The rooms are large, well maintained. We would definitely stay at this hotel again when we visit the area!

It truly is a great asset to be able to park your car at the hotel (parking is free) and not have to drive around and around looking for a parking space. The majority of my staff are local and thus a benefit in helping our guests with where to go and what to see. We appreciate your comment on... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bar Harbor Grande for the first time this September with our 7 month old. This hotel has the friendliest staff we've ever experienced. The location was perfect for us, only a block or two away from the Village Green. We asked for a larger room as we had to set up a travel... More

We truly love our families. You had the enjoyment of staying in one of our family rooms. I so wish we had more of those. They are as you described and it does give the freedom for the little ones to have roaming space. Our location is truly a benefit. Please bring your family back again in the future. Sincerely,...

We were pleased with our selection of this property; think the staff could use some coaching to improve the level of service; nothing bad but nothing out of the ordinary and expected a bit more. Also strange to see the parking on the side of the hotel where our room was totally roped off for Buses; but there were no... More

First off, I am very pleased you stayed with us and hope you will return. Often we rope off for our buses coming the next day as it is difficult to get all the spots needed. My greatest concern is that you were not receiving the service you expected from my staff. Please feel free to approach me if you... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel several times since it opened and always look forward to returning. For years, our rooms have consistently been well cared for (very clean, comfortable, inviting, warmly decorated and large). Staff members are friendly and welcoming, from the hotel manager, to the people at the reception desk, to the... More

First, the people working there are terrific. Just great. We arrived late, and with no one at the desk found an envelope with our name on it waiting for us. Quaint, in a way. And during our stay they were just very nice people all the way around. As for the Hotel, it's fine. I think the word "grand" in... More

Perfect location in town, clean accommodations and very nice staff. Will recommend to all headed up to town and Acadia National Park. McKay's Restaurant next door is not to be missed! I did not like the "SMOKING" TERMINAL!

Location was great! Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms are large, comfortable, clean. Our only suggestion for improvement, and the only reason the review is not Excellent, is the towels need to be upgraded. The towels are very low quality and way below the standard otherwise set by the hotel. If in Bar Harbor again, I will definitely stay at... More
