“Excellent hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We always look for a Hampton Inn when we travel because we know what to expect. This one was no exception. We walked in and booked two days with no reservation, and then extended that to a third. Hotel is clean, fridge and microwave in the room, breakfast was good, staff was friendly, guest laundry facilities were clean and in good condition. Fantastic place to stay if you want to spend time in Acadia National Park because you can easily go to the main part of the park or Schoodic Point.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor at the end of the hallway and had no noise issues at all.

This hotel was great. Pros: clean, great breakfast, comfortable beds, excellent swimming pool and decent hotel gym. Staff members were very friendly and very nice to my kids. Cons: No fridge or microwave in rooms.

We would definitely stay here again.

We always stay at Hampton Inns when they are available; we have come to trust in their comfort, cleanliness, service and amenities. This Hampton Inn in Ellswoth is no exception. It is a great place to stay if you are spending time in the Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park are.

While Hampton Inns are always nice, the Bar Harbor Hampton was especially enjoyable. The rooms are neat, clean and quiet - and the morning breakfast is way above average. They have a good selection of options; hot things are served hot, while cold things are served well-refrigerated. We highly recommend the Bar Harbor Hampton Inn to anyone looking for a nice place to stay when traveling along the coast of central Maine.

Stayed for a long weekend family reunion and hotel was great. Continental breakfast above average and great to have indoor pool for kids. Hot tub and pool both salt water and gave off a funny smell in hot tub but I seemed to be only one bothered.

We stayed here three nights and loved every minute of it. Situated in the shopping district of Ellsworth, right on Route 1A, it is centrally located. The hotel's staff is very friendly and welcoming, from the breakfast staff to the front desk folks. Loved those cookies at reception! The rooms are very clean and neat and very well appointed. The bathroom is spacious, the beds really comfy, and the hotel very quiet. The heating system works really well. The pool and hot tub are great! The complimentary breakfast was very good and plentiful. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is about a 25 minute drive to Bar Harbor, so this is a good alternative to staying in Bar Harbor. I would definitely stay here again when in the area!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the elevator and vending machines would be the quietest.

I travel often so I have I have a fair amount of experience with hotels. This hotel is highly priced for the rooms and the service they provide. I could tolerate that since many hotels in this area are over priced, even in the off season as when we stayed. My main complaint with the hotel is that our room was not cleaned or serviced in any way even though we left our room at 10:30am and did not arrive back until 5:30pm. When I complained at the front desk, I was told that the housekeeping service had said a "do not disturb" sign was placed on our door. I told him that was removed at 10am and no apology was given. No attempt to make the situation better. We also had the room right next door which had not yet been serviced when we removed the sign. Our adjoining room was cleaned but not the other. It was ridiculous and the front desk provided no legitimate explanation. At these prices for a basic room, they should at least be able to clean them!!

Rick S, General Manager at Hampton Inn Ellsworth / Bar Harbor, responded to this review, May 1, 2014
I apologize for the confusion from your stay. The "do not disturb" sign was out on one of the adjoining room doors and that is why is was not serviced. When our girls see that sign, we do not enter the rooms; whether it's an adjoining room or not.

Sincerely,
Rick Savageau
General Manager
