I stayed there with 2 friends over the Columbus Day long weekend. After reading the other reviews on this site I was dreading our stay. I'm happy to report that the hotel isn't as bad as nearly everyone reviewed. Its best feature is undoubtedly its location - its an easy 5 minute walk to the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, and the shops/restaurants. There is ample parking. The hotel is clearly in need of some updating. The ceiling paint was peeling, as was the wallpaper. However, the rooms were very clean, and the staff was surprisingly attentive. When we checked in we were offered a discount on our room because of a small problem, which I frankly wouldn't have expected to be compensated for. The front desk clerk was working hard to check us in, serve afternoon drinks, and guide guests with their questions. Yet when we requested more towels for our room she had them up to us within 5 minutes. Bottom line, in my opinion, is that this is not a luxurious B&B (in fact, as others have mentioned, they don't serve a hot breakfast), but then again, they don't charge luxury prices. Its a clean, quiet B&B with a great location at a reasonable price.
