Quiet for resting and short walk to restaurants and shops. Parking and good breakfast a bonus. Grandkids loved the pool. Rooms are clean and fresh, nicely furnished and beds are heaven after a long day of traveling.

After a long day of hiking, it was great to be able to park in town at your hotel and walk a few blocks down the street to grab some dinner. As other tourists struggle to find parking, you can relax knowing that everything you want to do is within walking distance. The hotel was clean and morning breakfast was... More

I want to thank you about the subject of hiking. There are over 100 miles of trails within the park and Island. Also, thank you for commenting on the convenience of our location as being able to park here (free) and walk the town is very important. And a nice way to start the day with our free hot breakfast.... More

Hotel is very clean and close to the downtown. We were fortunate enough to be on the 4th floor overlooking the main street with windows on 2 sides of our room. A few of the days and nights were cool enough that we didn't have to run the air conditioning which created a nice fresh feel in the room. There... More

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Park and the free Island shuttle, refrigerator in the room, WiFi, oh, and free breakfast. We're not big breakfast people so this is a plus to grab something light. Breakfast offerings are far from light - hot entrees, breads, toast, bagels, muffins, cereals, variety of juices, coffee, tea, hot chocolate,... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of July and will definitely be back! The hotel and the rooms are much cleaner and nicer than many of the other places comparably priced in the down town area. The location is great as you can walk to anywhere downtown and not have to deal with parking as the hotel has... More

Stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel August 4th through the 7th. We had a great experience. The location was ideally located about a five minute walk from the waterfront. It does not have a waterfront view but also doesn't cost $400+ a night and it is pleasantly quieter up the road a little from the waterfront. The rooms were... More

We originally booked in at the Aurora Inn, only to find it was a DUMP. We call Bar Harbor Grand and they were able to accommodate us for the rest of our stay. We did have to switch rooms for each of the 2 nights, but they made it worth our while and they moved our luggage making it seamless... More

The rooms were large, newly decorated and very clean. The hotel is at the end of most of the activity for Bar Harbor so you are out of the noise but close enough to walk to everything. The continental breakfast was good without being a feeding frenzy that some are. It even felt like home with he rocking chairs on... More
