My Fiancé and I decided to spend five nights here back in May, and we couldn't have been more satisfied. I had fond memories of the inn from visiting it as a kid - 20 years ago, so we decided to give it a shot. The rooms are simple, yet quaint and comfortable. The food is outstanding - we had... More

My family of five visited Bar Harbor in August before the kids all left for school. We stayed three nights only. We loved Acadia park even though it was crowded. We liked the town even though it was crowded as well. The hotel is listed as a three star and typically I would not take a risk on that rating.... More

This place is a luxury for sure. It has a spa on sight and a bell hop. We stayed on the first floor overlooking the ocean which was only 50 ft away. Each room has its own balcony. There plenty of outdoor places to sit and relax. There is a well kept walking path. It's not very private if you... More

Wonderful hotel on the water. Great front desk care and support. Dining facilities could improve - the lobster was overcooked. Wonderful views and good breakfast. The staff did anything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Would recommend strongly

I took my wife to the Bar Harbor Inn for our anniversary. Knowing that it was our anniversary, we found a bottle of champagne waiting in our room when we arrived! We stayed on the second floor Beach View. Beautiful view! This was an excellent experience and will be returning! Thank you for everything!

We went to Bar Harbor on a whim while traveling on the east coast. The Bar Harbor Inn is absolutely beautiful, with gorgeous rooms, lovely grounds, a fantastic restaurant, fabulous views, and a free breakfast that is amazing! We just loved everything about the hotel and Bar Harbor.

But beware there are still 6 steps, even with the elevator. We were traveling for my parents' 50th Anniversary (they are in the 70s), and the steps really made a difference for them (for many people, probably not a concern). The two bedroom suite is GREAT for a family, and much cheaper than two rooms. Hotel has great location and... More

Stayed here after a family Thanksgiving in Maine. The town is very quiet compared to summer and early fall. Acadia National Park is still beautiful this time of year. The inn has a very nice breakfast room with wonderful options. We were impressed with the fresh fruit selection. We only had 1 quiet night here out of 3. When are... More

I was pleasantly surprised! The customer service we had with our stay was top notch, we've traveled many places and the Bar Harbor Inn even though close to home made us feel like VIP guest. Great food, great service, and right at the waters edge. We'll definitely be back.
