We stayed at this hotel for our visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It is in walking distance to almost everything in Bar Harbor. The rooms are nice and spacious. The pool was beautiful. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. You couldn't ask for a better experience.

Great hotel. Close to everything. Rooms are beautiful and have everything you need. Whole property is beautiful. Staff is very friendly. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Bar Harbor. In the middle of downtown so close to shopping, restaurants and tours.

Has been a long time since I went to a hotel with so many extras. Childcare. Heated pools open till 11pm. Great service. All around perfect vacation. I found the prices to be very reasonable about $250 a night with everything (breakfast/poolside snacks)

The property was really quite lovely with the pool and the location was great, but the rooms were horrible especially for the large price tag. The conceierge was also quite disappointing as she didn't seem too interested in helping my husband and myself. Overall I was disappointed. I never spend this much on a hotel and was expecting a much... More

We really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms were well appointed and clean providing an excellent view of Frenchman Bay. The Bar Harbor club pool and bar is a beautiful setting next to the ocean. The bartender, Jon, went the extra mile and made us feel welcome. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially after a day spent hiking or biking... More

Harborside Hotel and Marina is located right next to the marina in downtown Bar Harbor. The boat tours and trolley rides are conveniently next door. We stayed on the second floor and had a pool view/harbor view. I had read an earlier review stating the pool is noisy which is not what I found. The pool has quiet times and... More

My daughter and I spent her 26th birthday (June 30) at the Harborside between the spa and the pool. Of course the massages were fabulous, but what really made our day was the combination of Jon and Grady!!! These two guys were running the bar and serving everyone poolside since it was a slow day (maybe 15 other patrons total).... More
