“A good choice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Nice clean room, good breakfast. Make sure you take advantage of the manager's special for dinner at the excellent Reading Room on the Harbor. The front desk requested window seats for us on two evenings and we got them. Saved an average of $30 each night.

Green Features: very environmentally friendly. you could have new towels everyday if you wish.. but not necessary if you don't. towels are big and fluffy, sheets are crisp and clean.. and the decor of the room is attractive and restful. free wireless and a fridge are great to have too!

The rooms were large, clean, and very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and quick to help.

There were not much to speak of in terms of entertainment or restaurants but is perfectly ok since the hotel has an amazing location and since you have Acadia in your backyard.

Highly recommend!

The wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel mid-week after Memorial Day. Can't say enough nice things about the hotel and staff and we look forward to staying there again in the future. Room was great, staff was great and very friendly/helpful, and we had not one negative experience. The hotel is in a great location with the heart of the downtown area within easy walking distance to the shore, shopping, and restaurants. We are already looking forward to our return.

We had a wonderful experience at Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was always cleaned promptly in the morning. The continental breakfast was substantial and coffee available all day was very nice on the chilly evenings. The Grand is in a wonderful location to access all of the shops, restaurants, and Frenchman's Bay.

We had a wonderful stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel during the Memorial Day weekend. We love the central location of this hotel, making it easy to walk to town and local restaurants. The people were friendly and helpful and the rooms are sparkling clean with comfortable beds. The bathroom was updated, spacious and had a large counter. They also offered a self-serve breakfast in the morning that had all we needed to start the day. For restaurants, Mache Bistro was #1. You have to try it...you won't be disappointed. We ate at Cafe This Way the second night and had a great meal there as well. We also enjoyed excellent lobster rolls (loaded with chunks of lobster meat) at the Side Street Cafe. Thank you for making our visit so enjoyable. We'll be back soon!

Perfect location, rooms clean and quiet. No problems. We were able to walk to all restaurants and shops. Parking is free and convenient. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was great.

Room Tip: We had the first floor in the back of the building. It was great because we didn't have to wait...

Green Features: I was happy to see that we had the choice of changing our towels. I didn't see a place to recycle bottles and cans. I hope this will be added.
