Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and beds are comfy. No noise pollution between rooms. Has cable and wifi. Good location between both Acadia Natl Park and Bar Harbor. Lobby of hotel is decorated adorably and the coffee, cookies, and popcorn available all day/evening are a wonderful touch.... More

The exterior seemed a bit basic and plain but the amenities were wonderful. Room was very comfortable with good beds, lighting, nice bathroom layout, lots of electrical outlets for charging our "toys." In many hotels, the electrical outlets are poor and cords fall out. Not here--everything was wonderfully maintained. The staff were all very pleasant, cookies in the afternoon, popcorn.... More

Your recommendation is very much appreciated! Thank you for such a nice review of the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn. I guess our exterior is rather basic and we” blend into” more than “stand out” in the Maine woods on the way to downtown Bar Harbor. I am very pleased that you found our property to be clean and comfortable... More

This motel extremely clean, well equipped, and only 1 mile from a major tourist site (Acadian National Forest). It was quiet and on spacious, groomed grounds. I loved it and would recommend it most highly.

Thank you very much for posting this lovely review for us. Your high recommendations mean a lot to us and will help potential travelers in their future choices. One cannot ask for much more than to have an extremely clean room, well equipped at that, and to have it so close to Acadia National Park Entrance and Visitor’s Center. Unless... More

This motel was dated and very basic. They had remodel the tub and tub floor but every thing else looked very old. It was however, also very clean and the staff was very nice. If someone was looking for an inexpensive place to stay I would recommend this motel.

Thank you for the recommendation! We are indeed remodeling every winter from the day we close to nearly opening day which is April 24, 2015. When we reopen for the 2015 season there will be more updates done. The rooms are very clean, as you noted, and the staff very helpful and friendly. The furniture is however, not that old... More

The BW Acadia was a second option as our travel agent, Hays & Jarvis, could not/would not secure accommodation at the Bluenose for our visit to Bar Harbor at the start of October on the basis that it was full. Strange that the Bluenose had a a Vacancies board displayed on their drive but this is another story. The Best... More

Thank you for saying the “there is nothing wrong with this hotel if it suits individual needs.” Thankfully we have suited thousands of individual’s needs. I understand your frustration of having the accommodations you had planned on taken away from you. I am sure there must have been misunderstandings involved. Fortunately, I have never heard our breakfast referred to as... More

Even though the hotel was nearly full, our stay was very peaceful, very quiet. Hotel breakfast was best I've ever experienced. A truly delightful experience. Property is very spacious. Located a short drive to Acadia National Park entrance and about five miles from Bar Harbor.

I thought the reviews rated this property higher than it deserved. Staff was courteous; room was clean; room not spacious or special; breakfast had nice variety--OK but not freshly made. Long way from town center. Maybe overpriced at $150. considering off season and not in town.

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your recent stay with us. While we do try to please everyone, we all know it is impossible. I am happy that you found the room to be clean and the staff courteous. We are indeed 4 ½ miles from downtown and that takes about 7 minutes, maybe 10 in August. Our... More
