This hotel was very nice and clean with good service and good breakfast. We loved being able to walk down the street to many restaurants and shops. The nearby shore walk was also very enjoyable. Of course, Acadia access is great. We will certainly stay here again.

Recently spent four nights at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. Staff and management were very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is located at the end of Main Street so it was centrally located and quite. Definitely a place we would stay at again. Nice place for families and reasonability priced.

We arrived after midnight and were accommodated quickly. The rooms were large and very nice. Close walking distance to all the great things to see in Bar Harbor. The breakfast was excellent. Hot waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, pastries, French toast, yogurt, and more. Over all a great stay. I could have stayed longer. I didn't try the pool but a... More

Thanks so much for staying with us. You should have tried the pool, we keep it at 82 degrees. Also, next time you return (and we hope you will) we will have a large hot tub. The location is so beneficial and the breakfast is yummy. Again, hope to see you again. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

We recently spent 3 nights in Bar Harbor, and one of the reasons this was a pleasant visit is that we discovered the Grand a few years ago, what a find! Other high end hotels could learn from the manager and staff how to treat their guests. The rooms are very clean, breakfast is plentiful, and we are always welcomed... More
