We took our 4 and 7 year old sons to Acadia for 4 days. The West Street is definitely the property to stay at. While it is more expensive then the others, the price is worth it (if you use the amenities). First, and most important, the rooms are clean. For example, my son dropped his yogurt on the carpet in the room...while I did my best to clean it, yogurt is not something that comes up easily. When we returned, we could tell that housekeeping finished the job. A fine example of attention to detail.
The pantries are perfect. I didn't think they would be a big deal, but it's so easy to stock up on water and ice (bags) before leaving for the day --- or even coming back. Our kids would leave the room to get the fresh fruit. When it rained, we sat down at the fireplace playing board games with our kids. Relaxing.
The kids camp across the street is simple, yet serves the need. We used it twice and our sons were very happy. Yes, they played video games...but they also made smores fireside. The important thing is that my husband and I got to have two meals alone.
We ate at the restaurant twice and the food is good. We live in NYC so the prices were comparable to what we pay here. However, I do want to recommend McKays in Bar Harbor...we had a simply amazing meal...fresh ingredients, decent wine list and fantastic service. The outdoor seating is quite romantic.
We didn't get a room with a view, because quite frankly, we are never in our room. We had a balcony that overlooked the parking lot...but that did not bother us at all.
We used the laundry facility twice and it was perfect.
The kids used the pool at Harborview once, and it is literally across the street. From West Street doors to Harborview pool is about a 1 minute walk (most of that is crossing a not so busy street).
The bike rental is literally 1 block up the street from the hotel...2 minute walk.
The pizza place is literally 1 block up the street from the hotel...2 minute walk.
Rite Aid (?) is literally 1 block up the street from the hotel...2 minute walk.
The hotel is convenient to everything!!!
The bellman, front desk clerks and housekeeping are all very nice people.
We will definitely stay here again...
