My husband and I bought a weekend getaway package off season. Everything was beautiful, all of the people were very nice, the room was exactly what we wanted. We had a great view of the Bar Harbor. The bed was comfortable and the room had all the amenities we wanted. It was very comfortable. It was early in the season... More

I can't believe this hotel. I felt like I was in heaven! Staff are extremely friendly, loft suite looks like a cozy house, and is two floors! The shower is in a modern bathroom and is huge! It is on a corner. If I had a choice to stay in a hotel ANYWHERE in the WORLD, it would be here!... More

So excited to stay at the Bar Harbor Inn for the 1st time. We spend lots of time on MDI in summer but we usually camp so this is a change for us. Great deal on the room for off-season but I don't know if I would pay the high rate for summer. Older room, just ok,bed very comfortable. Fireplace... More

I stayed in the main part of the hotel. Courteous staff, quiet days and staff was very helpful with local events. Room was very clean. My view was of Bar Island. Breakfast buffet was included in my rate. There was a small private deck for viewing the water and island.

This was my third time staying at Bar Harbor Inn. I stayed in the main older Inn section. Nice spacious room with a nice view of the harbor. Staff is very friendly. Even upon departure around 5 am in the morning, fresh coffee was available. The Inn is within easy walking distance of the entire downtown area of Bar Harbor.... More

Our room faced the ocean--great views! This is in a great location, close to shopping and restaurants. There is a short walking area in front of the inn. Even though it is an older inn, it is well maintained. The one day it was raining and we had wine in the circular covered porch and just watched the ocean waves.... More

This is a charming, well maintained inn in the heart of Bar Harbor, yet with beautiful grounds, on the bay itself. The room was large and quiet, with comfortable beds and bathroom, and a veranda overlooking the water. A path a few dozen yards in front of the veranda passes along the waterfront for half a mile or so, and... More

This was our 4th time here in Bar Harbor and we still haven't done all there is to do here. This hotel is in a great location. Close to shops, restaurants and the water all within a short walk. There are many activities to keep you busy and many wonderful sights to see. You can be as active or lazy... More

We visited Bar Harbor in the middle of November 2014, hoping to get some alone time on Acadia's many trails and to see the town without the thousands of tourists who fill it up during the summer. We definitely got what we wished for. During the month of November almost all of Bar Harbor's tourist shops were closed and many... More

Almost everything about my stay here during Columbus Day weekend was wonderful. Booking was easy and quick, and we had warned them of a late arrival, as we were traveling a straight 8 hours from Long Island...boy, that was an experience in itself! When we arrived at 2:45 AM with little rest and straight from work, I'm sure we would... More
