“Great hotel, perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We spent two nights here in September. It was clean, nicely decorated and close to Arcadia National Park. Being right on the water only added to the atmosphere. Morning breakfast was excellent, who has fresh strawberries and kiwi at an included breakfast!

The special town of Bar Harbor now has a hotel you will really enjoy. Beautiful ocean views; friendly, outstanding service, elegant decor, new and clean, generous complementary breakfast is included. We were totally delighted with this experience.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view. Don't forget to ask about AAA or other discounts.

Had a nice clean large room in new building. Upper floor with good view. Enjoyed an expansive continental breakfast. Close to Bar Harbor (which we drove to and had no problems finding parking). Very close to entrance to Acadia. Only paid slightly more than other hotels in area to have view of water and we thought it was worth it. Would definitely consider again if we ever make it that way again.

We stayed here the third week of September. The weather was perfect. The Atlantic Oceanside Hotel is very convenient to the center of Bar Harbor. The room was very nice, clean, and spacious. Our anniversary was mid week and when we returned to our room the maid had left 2 towels shaped into 2 swans with fresh flowers on the bed. Very nice touch. My only complaint would be that our balcony had broken slats. They were rotted and the banister was loose. Not very safe. The safe in the room was unusable because there were no instructions on how to use it. The breakfast was very good. I think they are a little overpriced but I would recommend them to stay.

Many years ago we stayed at Atlantic Oceanside(then,Atlantic Oaks)We were very surprised at all the renovations and new name. We did not realize the new building was even part of Atlantic Oceanside.We would have preferred staying in the new rooms! Our room was okay but rather "worn". Next time I will request the new building. We wish over the phone we were offered newer rooms since they seemed available.

Beautiful view. Short drive to town. Breakfast buffet is expansive, but hot items (eggs, pancakes, meats) cost extra. Has a gluten free station at breakfast buffet. Great indoor pool for families & kids. Some areas (eg. stairways and hallways) are a bit worn.
