My family has been enjoying MDI for nearly a decade. This year we decided to change thing up and stay in Bar Harbor. The Acadia Hotel was the perfect place. The location was great, the staff was amazing and friendly and the accommodations were perfect for our family. We will be back!

If you want to be in town this is good location. Room was clean as all reviews stated but had overpowering smell of bleach... even with windows left open. For price, room was nice but not what I expected from all the amazing reviews.

Had a great stay at Acadia Hotel. Quiet, comfortable, near the great Abbe Museum and a fantastic Irish pub that makes you feel instantly at home. Couldn't be a better location. The big wrap-around porch makes for great lounging with friends in between activities. Randy C.

The setting was in the New England style, and it felt like "home". The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful in making suggestions for seeing Acadia ( even in the... More

This small hotel was a lovely experience from the decor, the comfort, the location, and the staff. Though the room we had was one of the smaller ones they offer, it was well designed to provide maximum comfort. And the location just can't be beat - right next the the village green so you can walk to everything. The shuttle... More

This hotel has a perfect location in Bar Harbor! It is just across the street from the town green space and all the restaurants and shops! The hotel was clean, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area - especially the hikes in Acadia!
