“Perfect stay in Bar Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

This small hotel (that actually resembles a B&B... but no breakfast) is the perfect stay in Bar Harbor. It is located in the middle of all good restaurants and small charming stores the town offers. Our room was comfortable, I'd say mid-sized (to be honest, small bathroom) and very charming. Good bed, good shower. The place was extremely clean. And since we had no breakfast at the hotel, we could enjoy all delicious treats the Morning Glory bakery offers. So it was the perfect stay!

This hotel was everything I had expected and more. Extremely clean, very helpful staff, adorable rooms, SO convenient–walkable to everything in Bar Harbor. You don't even need to move your car.

The Queen room we booked was so nicely decorated, clean, and spacious.

The hotel even smells like fresh laundry!

I would stay at the Acadia Hotel over and over again.

My family has been enjoying MDI for nearly a decade. This year we decided to change thing up and stay in Bar Harbor. The Acadia Hotel was the perfect place. The location was great, the staff was amazing and friendly and the accommodations were perfect for our family. We will be back!

This is our second time staying at the Acadia Hotel and we (my fiancé and I) love it! The hotel is clean and the staff is very polite and helpful. The location of the hotel is amazing and it comes with FREE parking. The hotel is located next to some great restaurants and bars. Each time we visit we make a point of grabbing a drink at Leary's Landing; a great Irish pub located just a few doors down from the hotel. This is a great hotel for the money!

My fiance and I stayed at the Acadia Hotel this past weekend and I can't say enough good things about our experience! We arrived about mid day on Friday and were able to even meet the hotel owner (Peter) who was extremely pleasant and informative as he checked us in and gave us some sightseeing tips. We stayed in room #9 which we found to be very comfortable and cozy and even had a great view of Cadillac Mountain off in the distance! The hotel is located next to the town's Village Green so it was fun to explore some shops and restaurants nearby. We found a great local Irish Bar nearby that was tucked in between some shops (Leary's Landing) where we spent Friday night with some good drinks and local music and then on Saturday there was an excellent breakfast place (Cafe This Way) just around the corner. All in all, if you are looking for a true local Bar Harbor Maine experience, I would highly recommend the Acadia Hotel!

Room Tip: Book early in the season...the hotel was already filling up when we called to book in early summer

If you want to be in town this is good location. Room was clean as all reviews stated but had overpowering smell of bleach... even with windows left open. For price, room was nice but not what I expected from all the amazing reviews.

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.
