April is still the off season for Bar Harbor, but you wouldn't have know it at the Bar Harbor Inn. All of the staff were fantastic, very friendly and great attention to detail. Rooms were very clean, spacious, and comfortable. We had a priceless view of the sun rise from our Ocean Front Lodge room. And the free breakfast was... More

My husband and I honeymooned here in 2007, came back a few years later and visited again April 2015. We had an ocean-front, corner room in the main building with many windows and balcony. Beautiful, clean and spacious! I can't say enough about the staff. Julius Martini at the front desk as well as Beverly and Elna, housekeeping, were fabulous!... More

We recently stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn using one of their promotional packages: Island Escape. Everything was exactly as advertised. We were greeted warmly, and our room was ready early. This was during the quiet season, and our room was very clean and fresh. Meals in the dining room were exceptional, as was the service at every meal. When... More

This inn is one of the best in Maine. If you want a true Mainer,s experience.. This one is the place for you. The cabins are rustic and charming. the views from the rooms are delicious, as is the food in dining rooms. It is close to many main attractions. A wonderful spot for couples as well as families.

Always a great place to stay, we have many times. As frequent guests, we were offered a discount on oceanfront lodge rooms with balcony for early April weekend. Usually these rooms are in the $300+ a night range, but rather than empty rooms, we got one for $140. Thats what you might pay for roadside motel.. Gave us a welcome... 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.
