Admittedly, my first encounter with the front desk might have helped me form an overall negative opinion. My husband waited outside while I went to check in. There were 2 young ladies manning the front desk, one taking care of a gentleman and the other on the phone. I waited behind the man. The one young lady hung up the... More

This motel is perfect for families and quite convenient to the sights in Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Our room had a bathroom between two bedrooms, each with their own tv so our college age children could stay up as late as they wanted and watch their own tv programs while my husband and I could enjoy our own...

Bar Harbor Inn has the best location on the water in Bar Harbor! Even if you stay in the Newport building, which is not oceanfront, it is still a great place! The best building to stay in for oceanfront view is The Lodge. Our room was reasonably priced (in the Newport bldg) and included breakfast at the oceanfront Lodge. Eat... More

The Inn is perfectly situated by the municipal pier with its own private pier facing the harbor. Only a 3 min. stroll takes you to harbor cruises, lobster pounds, village restaurants, & blueberry ice cream. We stayed for a week in July. Tea & coffee for the guests in the lobby and house baked cookies around 4pm. We recommend both... More

Our stay in BH started with frustration at a 5star resort nearby. After 3 days we moved to BH Inn to avoid the dysfunctional other place. We had a great time and will return. No dysfunction,no hidden charges,no next door construction.
