3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 The room was OK, outdated mostly.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.

La Bella Vita is one of the only restaurants in town with a full ocean view. Combine that with outstanding food and you can't go wrong! Thanks for being our guests and hope to see you again! More

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

Fantastic location, very close of Acadia park and Bar Harbor center. Beautiful property and good rooms. Completelly unaceptable practices for Gluteen intolerant people. Not just nothing for the breakfast but also they refuse to hit a gluteen free bread. Escalating it to the hotel mgr he said that it is the policy. No comments.

Not knowing where to book in Bar Harbor or a little hesitant of some of the smaller, cheaper cottages....I opted to pick this Holiday Inn property. Generally speaking, you can't go wrong with Holiday Inn. It's not that this property was terrible, but it was terribly over-priced for what it is. The rooms are fairly clean but the carpet in...

While the Bar Harbor Regency looks like a lovely hotel, the adjoining Holiday Inn was just the opposite. First, no where is there signage telling travelers that they need to check in to the main hotel (the Regency). I had to ask other travels who had already checked in where to go. In the three nights I stayed there, not... More

Location had lost it's edge over the years. Still good staff,but building needs another facelift to justify prices.with the large selection of accommodations in the area they need something to distinguish themselves and they have become complacent these last few years.on site restaurants need to update menu fare and try new areas of cuisine.

The Holiday Inn Regency consists of two separate properties - the "Holiday Inn" and the "Regency". They are very different, so it's important to know which to choose. Book a room with "full ocean view" and you are staying at the Regency. These rooms have dated decor, are relatively clean and have decent sized balconies with an amazing view of... More
