We've been returning guests at the BHI for nearly 20 years for many reasons. Without a doubt, the view of Frenchman's Bay from many rooms cannot be topped by any other property. However, the view cannot compensate for the palpable indifference towards my family from the front desk staff management during our recent stay. This year we booked one of... More

We went to Bar Harbor for a nice family weekend (August 28) Absolutely beautiful location overlooking the harbor! Grounds were also well maintained with nice flowers and the most amazing views! We had a basic room with 2 Queen beds. Rooms a little bit dated but very clean and well maintained. The door squeaked and need some attention - they... More

Very nice people, welcoming with comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast. Wi fi leaves something to be desired. However, the help desk was very competent and willing. Breakfast room overlooked the ocean. We stayed in a room with a balcony and it was beautiful at night.

This is a beautiful location with many fine amenities. We stayed in the Newport Bldg. & our room had no view, but we knew that going in. Large and lovely grounds are well maintained and location near town is perfect for walking. We had less than perfect weather for 2 days, so the lack of water view was not a... More

We stayed in the Newport House (limited ocean view), but the experience was pleasant. Nice continental breakfast (no hot dishes), the Shore Path is right in front of the hotel. You are right in Bar Harbor, but secluded a bit from the hustle and bustle. Really nice property. Spotty wifi, but I was able to download my newspaper each morning... More

Absolutely beautiful Inn. The grounds are gorgeous. Rooms are a little outdated, but cozy. Loved having a balcony to sit on in the evenings and mornings and look out over the water. Not as peaceful as I would have liked with the path outside. Constant gravel crunching as tons of people walked by. The restaurant and bar were nice with... More

We spent 5 nights here. While the weather was not ideal, we had a wonderful time. The hotel location is amazing, or room looked out to the ocean, about 50 ft from our room. The hotel is also located in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, we walked everywhere, other than driving to Acadia National Park and Southwest and Northeast... More

I stood here for four nights in July with my family. The rooms are beautiful, well-maintained, and clean. The service from everyone that we met was absolutely wonderful. The continental breakfast is about what you would expect. I do have to say the baked goods were great and the people working to keep the place clean and stocked were terrific!... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn for two nights in August. It was billed as one of the best places in Bar Harbor to stay. I wasn't overly impressed; however, it did have some nice features. The view to the harbor was great and our small balcony overlooking the shore trail was lovely. The staff was... More
