“Excellent service at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I booked last minute off season for a business trip that took me to Bar Harbor. I had an excellent experience from the staff at the Bar Harbor Grand. All the staff went out of their way to make my stay an excellent experience and the room was the cleanest Hotel room I have ever stayed in. I highly recommend that if you're going to Bar Harbor that you visit the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed on the top floor and the views were great

Very nice upscale hotel right in the center of Bar Harbor. Walking distance to the wharf and main street restaurants with ample free onsite parking. They have great package deals which made my stay very reasonable. The rooms are also good size and very clean. The only draw backs were a grumpy general manager, and a very basic low end continental breakfast. Aside from this the rest of the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Spent four nights here in November and had a wonderful time. The entire staff was pleasant and engaging. The location of the hotel made it very convenient for a leisurely stroll into town for dinner.

The rooms were large and comfortable. There were plenty of electrical outlets for charging computers and cellular phones. The in room safe was huge and would accommodate the largest laptops; several actually. The rooms were very clean.

The hotel was very quiet, although it was the off season. Breakfast is included in the room rate and it was very nice. It compared with a chain hotel breakfast spread with an assortment of fruit, yogurt, cereal, breads, waffles, etc. I enjoyed the fact that I could make healthy choices and save my calories for dinner.

I would have no qualms about returning to this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on an upper floor on the side; I think there would be less parking lot noise.

This is a good, clean hotel with comfortable rooms. The staff was very helpful with suggestions on local places to eat. Rating would have been higher, but the breakfast selection here was limited and not as good as we have had at other hotels on the coast of Maine. The hotel is well located, allowing us to park the car and walk wherever we wanted to go in Bar Harbor.

We stayed two nights at the Bar Harbor Grand. Our room was well appointed, super clean and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was generous and presented very well.

We walked downtown, great little wine shop across the street, just all around great experience.

We will definitely stay again when possible.

The hotel was very nicely located, within easy walking distance of all the downtown. Our room, the family room, was twice as large as a regular room and very comfy for our family of four without having to pay for two rooms or for a suite. The hotel was clean and the service staff was polite and courteous while doing a good job of keeping the room clean.

Room Tip: Didn't use the restaurant or room service.
