We had a 3 night package the week after the hotel reopened so some of the services were not fully operational. The staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful. We found this particularly useful given the size of the hotel. We stayed in a unit right at the water's edge with a small deck to watch the word go by. Only... More

My family and I stayed at the BHI for a long weekend at the beginning of May. We were not disappointed. The view from our room was gorgeous! The Inn was walking distance from all the tours and downtown shopping and eating. Complimentary breakfast was also a nice option in the mornings. Staff was friendly and helpful. A beautiful place...

This is a very nice hotel, most of the rooms have an ocean view. You are just steps from the main tourist area of Bar Harbor, close to the piers. Rooms are spacious, however ours had a floor that creaked pretty badly when walking on it. Bed was comfortable, bathroom clean and has a nice deep tub. Room had a... More

Based on what we saw online we thought we would love this place. Unfortunately, our room in the main inn was small and somewhat dark. The bay view however, was incredible. We had a late lunch, and ordered room service in the evening. The French onion soup was too salty to eat, though our cheese plate was fresh and delicious.... More

We took a last minute reservation and stayed just one night so we could enjoy more of the Bar Harbor area. We stayed in the Newport building on the hotel grounds. It is more like a motel room than a resort room. It was a good price but similar to any nice motel. That said, the staff was superb and... More

This was our 4th stay at Bar Harbor Inn. This hotel consistently delivers comfortable, clean accommodations at the best location in Bar Harbor. The ocean front rooms afford a beautiful view of the bay and a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the scenery from the balcony. The included continental breakfast is very complete. The staff is overly helpful and... More

The Bar Harbor Inn is located very close to the shore of a spectacular bay, with sailboats cruising by and islands in the distance....much like a poster. Rooms have an inviting deck suggesting a pause to enjoy the beauty and have a glass of wine. The inn has a quiet, pleasing ambience which couples would certainly enjoy.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn. At the end of April, the off-season room rate is less than a third of the in-season rate. We stayed in the Ocean Front Lodge with a fantastic water view from the balcony. It was a lot easier hauling our gear in and out of the room... More
