We were on a leaf tour and stayed at the Bar Harbor Regency. They have a shuttle bus that runs you into town and back so the location is good. We had a lobster dinner the night we arrived, it was the typical lobster bake with the whole lobster. I'm not a fan of the whole lobster, so I'd say... More

This place was so disappointing! It does NOT live up to its pictures/ advertising. Read through the negative barrage of TA and Yelp reviews on this place and pretty quickly you'll get the picture: Tired, dirty, horribly mismanaged hulk of a place. Attitude of the staff is just so unbelievable: "Take it or leave it, we could care less." It... More

The room itself wasn't outstanding, but the view was! Our room was spacious, but it was old and in need of some updates (carpet, furnishings). My family of 5 (including an infant sleeping in a pack n play) had plenty of space in the room. We splurged a bit and paid for an ocean-view room and that was definitely worth... More

Originally booked for 4 nights, stayed for 2 nights. Booked through Reservation Counter (which I thought was the reservation system for the hotel). Booked a "upgraded ocean view room" in main hotel with "oceanfront balcony". I called the Reservation Counter and specifically asked to have one of the newer "Updated Rooms" after reading some of the reviews about the older... More

This hotel is part of a chain, but obviously corporate doesn't review its properties. The views are great, but the atmosphere and management of this hotel does not exist. The lobby was recently remodeled which doesn't fit the theme of the hotel/resort. Too bad they did apply this money towards things that make a great hotel/ resort. For example, they... More

The hotel was OK. It smelled like old mildew in the hallways. The room was OK, outdated mostly. The location was great. Not walking distance to lively Bar Harbor are, but definitely a short drive. It is located between downtown Bar Harbor and the entrance into the Acadia Park. The coffee shop was closed 3 mornings in a row, not... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Arrived late- was told upgraded to ocean view suite (which is what we reserved). We were put out in the stone house that is not connected to the main hotel. The rooms were apparently the newer ones, but still needs some updating. Has french doors that go out to balcony that looks out over ocean.... More

I'm sorry if you did not fully enjoy the oceanfront suits and thank you for your feedback. We are currently in the process of a property wide renovation and will likely be including our suits this winter. If you do return please contact me and I will be sure you have all of our room options to choose from. More

We stayed at this hotel in August 2014 and if we go back to Bar Harbor we would book with them again. We ended up staying two nights , there are two buildings and I would recommend staying in the main building. The first night we were in the separate building and the noise from the road was a little... More

It's hard to beat the view this close to the ocean! Only the Harborside Hotel has a pool closer to the water. The free shuttle into town certainly does add value to our resort and is a great way to get to the Park as well. More

We did not have a view, but the view from the hotel was really beautiful. We ate breakfast in a separate building that really had a terrific view. There is a free shuttle that will take you from the hotel to the downtown area. The hotel was close to Arcadia National Park.

Close to Acadia National Park. We were only there for a night, a stopover on the way south to MA, so the room was sufficient, although no view of the water. If I was staying longer I would definitely book a room with a view. Our room was clean, as was the bathroom. Since we weren't staying long, we were... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and I'm glad you enjoyed the resort. Hopefully you will join us again - and you certainly should book an ocean view room and have dinner in La Bella Vita, or down on the water at Stewmans. More
