My husband booked 2 nights at the Blue Nose. We have had family recommend this place to stay. We expected a busy vacation weekend in Bar Harbor. We did not notice the craziness down town. It is not an Inn as we expected. It is more like a resort. Beautiful pools and a spa. Breakfast at their restaurant was great.... More

Stayed at the Bluenose for two nights while in Bar Harbor. We stayed in the secondary area, not the main building, and our room was adequate -- the old motel style room -- clean, but nothing extra. We had a room on the first floor right next to the stairs so we heard people going up and down a lot... More

We stayed one night in a room on the 2nd floor w a harbor view. Request this. Room is super large and clean. Staff is friendly and the free breakfast was a cost savings for sure. The rooms are decorated in the green-burgundy era of the 80's but the carpet and furniture showed little wear. You can also walk downtown.

Normally, with going on a large bus tour, the hotels are small, dirty, and pretty much the cheapest around -- NOT WITH BLUENOSE! The cost apparently is about $250/ per night for a double-room, but the cost is fully worth it. If you are lucky, such as in my case, you can even get a magnificent view of Frenchman's Bay.... More

This was our second stay at the Blue Nose Hotel in Bar Harbor Maine. We were upgraded to a nicer room on the 4th floor with a beautiful view of the water. The room was very clean and well maintained for an older bldg. Many upgrades and a very romantic setting. Fireplace, balcony over looking the water and a setting... More

The entire family stayed for a 50th anniversary and all were pleased. The view was gorgeous, the hotel staff was friendly and accommodating, the hotel was clean and very nice. There are 2 pool options both indoor and outdoor so everyone was happy. We had breakfast at the Looking Glass Restaurant on the property and it was delicious.

Conveniently located short drive or walk from downtown, but just enough out of downtown for peaceful lodging, relaxing and dining. Staff could not be more accommodating and helpful. Rooms and facilities are spotless, comfortable, and offer all the amenities you could wish for. Pools are clean and convenient. Spa and gym are easily accessible. Tremendously enjoyed every moment of our... More
