Very cozy place. Somewhat reminded me of my grandmothers house, but clean and well kept. I really liked the large bathrooms and how clean everything seemed to be. We slept great in the large king size beds as well. Very scenic spot and close to Acadia National Park.

We are pleased that you found your room cozy and, of course, clean. As mentioned, our bathrooms are quite spacious. Comfort is also important and our beds are very comfortable so thanks for mentioning that also. Our location is so beneficial and just a short drive to the Park. Please come back.

We stayed at Bar Harbor in the off season--towards the beginning of November (2014)--and were very pleased with the location, tidiness and quality. The location is ideal both for exploring Acadia Nat'l. Park and strolling down main street to explore the cute shops and local restaurants. Would recommend to family and friends!

Found this hotel online and also saw while driving around. The name grand suits this hotel just fine. It was such an improvement from our previous night in Bar Harbor.

Thank you for your wonderful review...it is very much appreciated. We are so glad you found us. I loved your description of our beds and bedding "dreamy". Sleeping is what vacation is all about. It puzzles me that we have received a few complaints on our breakfast, however, a frequent traveler as yourself reassures us how wonderful it is. It... More

The location of this hotel was on the end of main street, and it had a large parking lot on site. It was easily walkable to the other end by the wharf and adjoining side streets.

We stayed in this wonderful hotel mid-October. Room was beautiful with the feel of a classy "vintage" hotel, very clean.

Breakfast was very nice, however the waffles and french toach were... More

It had a great location. The room was nice and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the air would turn off automatically at night which made sleeping difficult. If we knew we would have gotten up and readjusted it.

We had a wonderful late October stay - time of year obviously impacted the rates (the last weekend of October marks the end of the season, local commerce was getting ready for a long winters nap), but we lucked out weather-wise, spending a remarkably sun-soaked extended weekend hiking the autumn brilliance of Acadia National Park and exploring downtown Bar Harbor...

Stayed for two nights in October. Good central location with free parking. Helpful, welcoming staff. Large room with fridge, king size bed, seating, large TV and coffee maker. Was a good base to explore the town on foot and then drive out to Acadia National Park

We hear the comment of the great location of the hotel and appreciate hearing it over and over as it is very helpful to prospective guest.

We stayed during the first weekend in November, and even though a pretty major winter storm hit the area, our stay was wonderful.
