“Close to a really good Irish pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Had a great stay at Acadia Hotel. Quiet, comfortable, near the great Abbe Museum and a fantastic Irish pub that makes you feel instantly at home. Couldn't be a better location. The big wrap-around porch makes for great lounging with friends in between activities.

This was my second visit to the Acadia Hotel. My mother and I shared a relaxing weekend in Bar Harbor. We booked the suite which has two rooms that share a bath. The hotel was immaculate and the staff very friendly and helpful. We really like the location downtown. You can park your car at the hotel and walk to everything. We could not have had a nicer time.

We had a lovely three night stay at the Acadia Hotel July15-17th. Our room was small, but very clean, and it had everything we needed for our Bar Harbor stay. The setting was in the New England style, and it felt like "home". The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful in making suggestions for seeing Acadia ( even in the rain) and Bar Harbor. I loved the front porch on the green with lemon water and a firepit in the evening. We had a nice deck to sit on outside our room too. This was like staying at a family run Inn right in the heart of a lovely town. We would stay here again- no question.

Room Tip: Book early in advance of your trip. They had no vacancies while we were there. We had an economy r...

This small hotel was a lovely experience from the decor, the comfort, the location, and the staff. Though the room we had was one of the smaller ones they offer, it was well designed to provide maximum comfort. And the location just can't be beat - right next the the village green so you can walk to everything. The shuttle stop for the free transportation to Acadia park is just a block away, so you really do not need a car to visit Bar Harbor and the park.. The manger, Jordan, was extremely nice and helpful as well as knowledgeable about the town history. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a small intimate hotel experience..

Room Tip: don't choose room 8 if you have short arms - the location of the toilet paper holder is not clos...

This hotel has a perfect location in Bar Harbor! It is just across the street from the town green space and all the restaurants and shops! The hotel was clean, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area - especially the hikes in Acadia!

I had the pleasure of spending last weekend at the Acadia Hotel. I could not have asked for a more pleasant located. It is in the center of town but my room (The Suite) was quiet and spacious. The hotel is beautifully maintained and the staff is friendly and knowledgable. I will return.

Room Tip: The suite has beautiful views of the mountains.
