“Clean and Comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My family and I stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, and Bar Harbor. The location was perfect; removed from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor yet only a couple of minutes away. The National Park visitors center is also very close. We were able to drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain in about 15 minutes from the hotel. The staff at the hotel are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast is the typical Best Western fare: cold cereal, make-your-own waffles, eggs, fruit, toast, etc. Overall the hotel was the perfect place as a base for our adventures.

Room Tip: This is a single story hotel and all the rooms are motel-style where your car is parked outside the...

We certainly love our location and it seems that you do as well. Thank you for highlighting some very important aspects of a traveler’s itinerary to which we are convenient. We enjoy all of our guests and want to please them. Our breakfast is staffed by Carole, a wondrous advantage for all of us. She knows the area inside and out and is always helpful plus, she puts out a splendid array of fruits, omelets, sausages or bacon, breads, cereals, juices and other breakfast items. Parking is plentiful here and we have no problem accepting motorcycles to tour buses. Thank you for your review and please come again. Jane

Stayed at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn for a family gathering. The price point was good. The room was super clean and the breakfast was great. There were staff at the breakfast who cleaned, filled, helped, and chatted. The staff at the desk were so proud of their property and could not have done more to go out of their way to be helpful and appreciative of my business. You rarely see that in a hotel. The grounds were well kept, extra towels, plenty of coffee and cookies in the lobby! I would go back.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant but the included breakfast had everything. Staff were friendly and appreci...

We are so pleased that you chose the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn for your family reunion accommodations. We certainly do appreciate your business and we are very happy that you enjoyed your time here, rain or shine. We get very enthusiastic when sharing information on Bar Harbor all of the interesting things to see and do here that it can’t help but be noticeable that we love our area and its natural beauty. We do take great pride in our property and want every guest to enjoy all that it has to offer. While we do have three nearby restaurants and an ice cream shop within a quarter mile of us , it can be too much of a walk for many people. Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and please come back again. Sincerely, Jane

We just left this hotel after a 3 night stay. Staff, from checking to breakfast room, were extremely friendly and helpful. They truly welcome you as if it were their home. Rooms were a pleasant surprise- larger than expected ( not huge) and very adequate. Also very clean. Breakfast was more than simple continental- had eggs, sausage, make own waffles, fruit, etc..only draw back is having to wait for place to sit as room not large enough for size of hotel.
Hotel is close enough to Acadia- about 3 miles, but the drive to and from bar harbor got old after first trip. It is far enough out to make it bothersome to go back and dry out before heading back out ( we had plenty of rain one day!). But It was certainly not a deterrent. My biggest complaint was the price. It was definately higher than similar hotels in the area, and those closer to town. Which I did not know until I looked at other sites once there...it was fine during the week but the up charge on the weekend was not worth the stay.

We so appreciate all the wonderful compliments you have given to us concerning your visit. We are situated 2 miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park and Visitor’s Center and 5 miles from downtown Bar Harbor. We are close enough for you to be there within 10 minutes but far enough away to be very a restful and peaceful respite after a day of activity in the park. It certainly did rain heavily one day during your stay and that undoubtedly was an inconvenience for you. I understand that this was the 6th wettest June in years.
We are competitively priced with comparable motels in our area and our facilities and amenities far surpass those nearest to us that do offer lower rates. Your stay did coincide with the time period when spring rates take a jump into our summer rates on June 28th. We do inform guests of any rate change they may encounter during their stay when they make the reservation as well as during check-in. I am sorry that you were unhappy with the shift into our summer season rates. We do hope you will make another return visit during the “off season” in early spring or late fall and enjoy lower rates while still experiencing all that Acadia and the surrounding area has to offer. Warmest regards, Jane

We stayed one night here on our way to Bar Harbor. They put us in one of their larger rooms. It was quite spacious with high ceilings. It was right next to the pool. The place was super clean, the staff was very friendly, and the free breakfast was good as well.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn. Our deluxe rooms do have higher ceilings and are larger along with being pool-front or very near to the pool. All have king beds and four have pull-out queen sized sofa beds, too. We are very pleased that you found all staff to be friendly and helpful, as they should and want to be. Our housekeeping department has earned BEST WESTERN I Care 2 status with exceptional cleaning practices including the use of The Pure Lite Ultra Violet Wand . Thank you for choosing the Acadia Park Inn for your lodging while in Bar Harbor. We hope to see you again soon. Jane

We spent 3 fantastic nights at the Best Western Acadia and we were pleasantly surprised to find people who actually love their jobs and who are willing to share their knowledge of the are with the people who stay there. The hotel is lovely, the breakfast is more than expected, the rooms are meticulous. I would return there again if I had the chance.

Thank you for your wonderful review of our BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn. We are a short 5 miles from downtown Bar Harbor and the ride along the way has magnificent views of Hull's Cove. Our laundry facility comes in handy as dirty laundry just seems to be there, even on vacation. We are happy to provide our guests with a wide array of choices for that most important meal of the day. Our staff does try to anticipate every guest’s needs even before they do. Thank you for the compliments. We do love our serene setting amidst the Maine woods along Rt.3. We are happy that you do as well. Please come see us again. Regards, Jane

Service: The staff was extremely nice, helpful and accommodating

Cleanliness: The entire property is kept impeccably clean- its actually a very picturesque setting.

Location: Located minutes away from Acadia in a very tranquil setting. Just down the road there's restaurants, ice cream shop, and beach area. Perfect!

Rooms: I was actually surprised how nice the room was. It was wonderfully clean and tastefully decorated with an ultra comfy king size bed! The bathroom was large and modern.

Best of All: I loved the fact that you can drive right up to your room- makes loading and unloading a breeze. I also loved the freshly baked cookies provided for free daily!

Would we stay again? Absolutely! We've become a Best Western family!

Welcome to our Best Western Family! We are very happy to have you. I hope that you have signed-up to become a Best Western Rewards member so that you get all of the perks that go with that. (Shame on us if you are not.)
We occasionally hear that people are amazed how wonderfully clean and cozy our rooms are. We may not have multiple floors or an ocean view but we do have sparkling clean and comfortable rooms with awesome bedding for our guests. Our rooms all come with a 32 inch flat- screen TV, a microwave, refrigerator, in-room safe, ample towels and pillows and plenty of amenities. Then there is the outdoor heated pool and lest we forget, a FREE deluxe continental breakfast for everyone in the morning. All of this nestled in 13 beautiful acres of Maine woods.
Our fresh baked cookies are a popular afternoon treat along with your choice of hot beverage. We are very happy to see the smiles when the plates come out. In front parking does make unloading easier and there is plenty of it. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for your wonderful review Jane
