A little overpriced, but was very clean and in walking distance to shops and restaurants. Wanted a harbor view but should have requested harbor front. View of harbor was a sliver. Lots of families with young children .

Really enjoyed this property, which is situation directly on the harbor. We had two rooms on the ground floor, looking out onto the marina, which provided us with copious entertainment. It was especially beautiful on Independence Day. We sat on the porch outside our room to watch the fireworks. Early mornings come, well, very early in Maine in July. By...

We planned an anniversary trip to Bar Harbor and decided to stay down town to walk to all of the attractions. We settled on Harborside Hotel & Marina after reviewing the website and noting the amenities. We were extremely disappointed. The staff was seasonal and the registration clerk was from the Dominican Republic and did not have a great command...

My husband and I just stayed for 1 night over the weekend. The location is great. Its downtown near all of the shopping and restaurants. It's on the water side so there's nothing in between the hotel and the harbor. The grounds are nice. We arrived just about 5 minutes before the check in time of 4:00, so the person...

lovely setting, perfect location, a can-do staff. Expensive, but life is short and well worth every cent. 2 pools, beautiful flowers and sights abound. Really a well run resort!! Hot chocolate by the fireplace with my five year old--priceless and forever!

My friend and I took our daughters here to have fun in Bar Harbor. The cool thing is the hotel is right on the harbor and at low tide you can cross the sand bar and explore Bar Harbor Island. The pools are nice and service at the bar was good food at the pool for the kids. I was...

On first glance hotel looks very upscale. I think the rooms are a little dated. Overlooked PARKING LOT and then the water. That was disappointing…but really did not hear the noise. I would think if we were on the first floor you might. Had a King and used the sleeper sofa and requested rollaway bed but they now have blowup...

I stayed for 3 nights at this hotel during a recent trip to New England. The room we had was nice, well-equipped but a little bit small. The bathroom, especially the shower was extremely good. I had a massage at the adjacent hotel club spa which was extremely good but it was a little inconvenient that the spa is situated...

This resort was a perfect combination of luxury and quaint new england. It is nice to have the combination of both! It is also perfectly located with views of the lake and mountains, and just steps away from the adorable Main Street. Staying here you will have a magical Bar Harbor experience. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed a relaxed couple of nights here. The rooms are spacious and well set out, we had a balcony and enjoyed the view over the harbor (even if the car park intervened). Dined in the restaurant and enjoyed the pizza there. Not sure why you would want to have an open fire going in the middle of July though?
