We traveled with friends and these reservations were made sight unseen. When we first pulled up it was a kind of an "Oh" moment. When we saw our rooms it was a " WOW" moment. Very clean and looks like recently re done and very Quiet.. Don't judge a book by it's cover. Large room, refrigerator, safe, great bed and... More

As my reviews show, the most important thing to me is sleep quality. I like the older places as they were built better and this is one story, so no loud feet. It's not fancy but location wise it's good. Service was top-notch and they have both a crushed ice machine and a regular one. Breakfast is free but it... More

I appreciate your taking the time to post this review. We are indeed a one story property. There are five guest buildings in all plus the new Continental Breakfast House. I apologize for the zoo effect you experienced in breakfast. Carole runs a pretty tight ship when it comes to out of control children if she feels it disrupts the... More

Thank you for spending the three nights with us when there are so many other options available in Bar Harbor. To receive an A++ from a guest is about as good as it gets!

Just returned from our stay in Bar Harbor. Had a wonderful time, which was enhanced by our hotel experience. I always get nervous selecting a hotel sight unseen and without recommendations but this was a very good choice. The facilities were adequate and what you would expect from this type of hotel chain. But what made he experience exceptional was... More

The hotel was clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is good food prepared well. The breakfast is more than coffee and a muffin. I liked the location away from town. I chose it because it was a national chain which I thought would give me a better chance at getting a good mattress. I was right! The... More

What exceptional service. We had a large group (24). The check in was fast, efficient, and friendly thanks to Teenia, the hostess. She explained about the hotel, Acadia and the various services available in Bar Harbor.The place was spotless and the complimentary breakfast was better than what I have received in some restaurants.

Rooms were clean and it was very quiet. We were on the back side so we had direct access to the "picnic area", which was nice. Location was good for the Acadia Park, Breakfast was less than adequate as the eggs were cold and rubbery.

Although somewhat pricey for me, it is not for the area. It is the BEST Best Western that I have ever stayed at. The service and staff go above and beyond. I have traveled all over the country and downeast beats them all.

We named this Hotel the "Homestead Hotel" because it is set in a quiet, but open, treed area of a Park with all the qualities of home, not like your noisy, hot and congested City "High-rise bedroom" buildings. Close to everything but far away from the City rush. The staff treat you like Family, not just a "room number client".... More

Thank you for this unique review! I must tell you that we like that “Homestead Hotel” nickname! That exudes the warmth and hospitality that is our goal. Our new “breakfast house” (coined by a previous guest) was built especially for you with a great deal of thought for an extended, varied menu and the relaxation factor.

I don't know about you, but if I stay somewhere that has pristine accommodations but a staff that isn't guest-oriented, I am ready to bolt. Let's face it, a good staff can make or break any kind of business.
