This was our 7th year staying at the Bar Harbor Inn. This time, though, we had our 2 little ones along! The hotel has made some upgrades. We stayed in the Newport building, and we noticed newer carpets and bedding. Also, kudos to the really nice housekeeper who did our room every day. With 2 kids under 2, there were... More

We stayed this hotel and at the Harborside Resort next door. This hotel has better harbor views and a lot better layout to set and enjoy the bay from either water front balconies or on the lawns. We enjoyed the water front breakfast area ( Free continental ). Items were limited to fruits, Coffee, cereals, breads, muffins, teas etc. Nothing... More

Staying here was like going back in time; a time when hotels provided their guest with extra amenities and enjoyable visits. The rooms at this hotel are clean and well taken care of. The breakfast buffet offers many choices or breakfast is served in the main dining room if you prefer to order from a menu. There is an easy... More

Without the amazing location and views, this hotel is very average. The room was small with an armoire as the closet and a not so large bathroom. Our balcony was enough to seat 2 comfortably. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The towels were your average hotel towel as were the complimentary soaps and such. I... More

My husband, an amputee in a wheelchair, and I made reservations for an accessible room at BHI. When we checked in, we found the room to have a two+ inch lip for entry. This would have made it impossible for my husband to enter and exit the room on his scooter. Returning to the front desk, they apologized to us... More

We've been coming to Maine for 35 years and make a stop in BH every 5-7 years. I've seen the town during good times and bad times. Although there are newer properties to choose from, nothing can compare to the "Grand Dame" of Bar Harbor. She sits on a quiet bluff over looking Frenchman's Bay where you can choose a... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bar Harbor Inn and would recommend it to anyone. We stayed in a family suite that comes with 2 bedrooms and one bath which worked out well with our two children staying in the second bedroom.
