The Grand is absolutely wonderful. It's large clean rooms and attentive staff is everything you could ask for. It's location in downtown is ideally located for walking throughout the town for shopping and dining. The staff provided great advice for local attractions, including where to place your blanket for the beautiful 4th of July fireworks! We had a great visit... More

We got a 3-day package that included room, 2 meals at the Reading Room with an incredible view of Bar Harbor seaside, an incredible sail on a 4-masted schooner and a $20 gift card with which we bought a beautiful blueberry-themed local pottery vase. Great value. Convenient and walkable to most everything. Friendly staff and a very comfortable room.

Stayed for 3 nights end of June. Very pleased with this hotel. Perfect location near end of town. Breakfast included which was a plus. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Front desk staff were very helpful! This being our first trip to Bar Harbor did not know the area but for sure this hotel was the perfect choice.

Thank you Anne from Pennsylvania. Our location is appreciated by many. The big plus is that is the busy season, you don't have to move you car and parking is free. You can walk to everything. Thanks so much for your kind words on our facility and staff and please come back. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

We are at BHGH right now. Its clean, cute, convenient, and.... they allowed us to check in early. The manager actually came out to the parking lot to let us know our room was ready. You really don't see service like that very often.

We stayed at the Grand for one night following our stay at the West Street Hotel. A true disappointment to say the least. The decor in the lobby is de facto outdated. The decor of the dining room where the continental breakfast is served looks exactly like my mother's retirement home. The rooms were cheaply decorated, disappointing in size and... More

I'm sorry for the guest displeasure. Most find our rooms attractive. We do not accept pets (service animals only). Had the guest spoke with us concerning an odor, we would gladly have moved them to another room. Sincerely, Dennis W. Clark, Manager More

The hotel is located very close to downtown so it is easy to walk all over Bar Harbor. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Complimentary breakfast included. Quiet location. Always nice to have a comfortable chair in the room.
