I stayed in the Bar Harbor Hotel for a night in June. Enjoyed the comfortable beds and new, clean feel. Had a great night's sleep and was welcomed by the friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful value for a cozy place right in downtown Bar Harbor. Walking distance to all the restaurants and stores.

This is great location. Liked the heaters on the porch and the book library. Also had a computer to use. Rooms were very simple. Nothing extravagant. Seemed clean. Not cluttered. Some rooms were shower only. The staff were not very outgoing.

This is where you want to stay in Bar Harbor, ME. Older house superbly updated and maintained. Walk everywhere in town; close to stores, restaurants, waterfront. Staff exceptionally friendly. Nice wrap-around porch for siting, watching the park, and there are iced lemon water and pink lemonade set out. Gas heaters on the porch to gather around on those chillier evenings.... More

Our party of four adults stayed in the Dorr mountain suite. This consisted of two bedrooms (king beds), a bathroom, and a living area with sofa, chair and a small dining table. The place was spotless and very pleasantly decorated. Coffee was in the lobby (right outside our door but we never heard any noise) and pastries/muffin type fare was... More

Our trip to Maine included 4 days and 3 nights in gorgeous Bar Harbor, and within minutes of checking in to the Acadia Hotel, I knew our stay would be pleasant and fun. The Acadia Hotel is located in the heart of town just across the street from the Village Green and directly next door to the Abbe Museum of... More

Granted it's not the Ritz but I liked the hotel very much. Very comfy, laid back, and nice staff. I enjoyed having a cup of their coffee and sipping it on their deck. Yeah the bathroom is small but it's very nice and clean.

This was our third time staying at the Arcadia Hotel and we are already looking forward to our next visit. The owners have expanded the hotel but the comfortable homey feel remains. It's location is key. Across from the village green within walking distance to the waterfront, restaurants and shops. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are immaculate! You... More

Looks like it was once a B&B, has maybe 16 rooms, all different, very nicely decorated, solid bathrooms. Want to sit by the porch and watch the backstreets of Bar Harbor (quiet, however)? This is the place. I am picky about hotels and this place makes the grade. Nothing lavish, but very, very nice.

This is a very unique property. It is an older home converted into a Hotel. The staff is always helpful and willing to answer any and all questions you may have about the area, restaurants, Acadia National Park, etc. We stayed in the Dorr Mt Suite which is a fabulous, large suite with two bedrooms. The beds were very comfortable... More

Really loved the Arcadia Hotel which we found through the AirBnB site. Very clean and room had everything we needed including a fridge. Coffee and tea were available all day at reception - nice touch was wine glasses and corkscrew available is as well. Hotel is quiet despite being in the centre of Bar Harbor, lots of lovely places to... More
