Reviewed September 4, 2015

This hotel is lovely, the breakfast was good, the view is nice and the place is well kept. The only thing is if you are old or handicapped it is hard to get around. The pools are nice but we didn't go since we would have to drive.

Dear Whatever90, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to write this review. Since our property has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs and 5 different buildings all located on 12 oceanfront acres.Sometimes it can seem like you have to walk around a bit but most of our guests believe that its worth it...

I was well satisfied with the hotel. Our room was clean and pleasant and the ocean view was terrific! There is a free shuttle to downtown Bar Harbor so we could leave the car and not worry about traffic, parking, etc. But my biggest surprise was the hotel's restaurant. "The Bistro" is a smallish place with both indoor and outdoor...

The pros: the view is great and the rooms are large. Everything works, pretty much. The cons: this is a massive complex which brings people in, literally by the bus load. The scene at breakfast, which is, at least, free, is a total zoo. It basically feels like a high end motel. So short on charm.

Dear Cplumb2001, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for your comments on TA. I am glad that you enjoyed the view from your room. I can understand how busy breakfast can be, especially at certain times and then if the weather is bad and the outside seating is not available it can be crowded. However many guests...

It's on the edge of Bar Harbor, near the College of the Atlantic. It has a large conference center, and many rooms have sea views. It's a nice hotel - a bit pricey, but this is Bar Harbor, and having driven along a long strip of ugly buildings on the way from Ellsworth to Mount Desert Island, we were happy...

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel. We had an ocean view room, with a cute set of wicker chairs and small table on our patio, where we enjoyed each sunrise and sunset over the water, while enjoying our first cup of coffee of the day or an evening cocktail. Room was spacious and clean, continental breakfast...

I booked the ocean side, king size room with a balcony. Beautiful view, a joy to wake up to and let's you forget everything bad in life and focus on the good. The room was large and comfortable. I gave it four stars because it did not have room service, which was a bummer but the amenities made up for...

We loved our room with the ocean view. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. The Nature Cruise was lovely and convenient because the dock is located on the premises. The entrance to Acadia National Park is also nearby.

Our brand new Atlantic View building offers everything you would expect from a modern hotel with fantastic views. Close enough to all the action of town, but just far enough away so you can relax. Our new rooms, friendly staff, and seasonal packages are the perfect combination of quality and value. Let us show you how beautiful the Maine coast can be.The AO is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its all new Bistro on Eden, a full service restaurant and bar.And with a great location comes great responsibility. The Bistro on Eden is a warm, lively restaurant and bar where people can be themselves and meet others in a friendly, comfortable setting. Overlooking Frenchman's Bay it offers smashing views and intimate outdoor seating, where every seat faces the Atlantic Ocean. We feature great tasting fresh, seasonal comfort cooking with ingredients that are primarily sourced from local, small scale vendors. Above all you can expect warm, genuine service. That is something upon which we pride ourselves.We are located inside the lobby of the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel, 119 Eden St. Bar Harbor, and Maine 04609. Open Wed. ~ Sat. 5Pm ~ 9pm ... more   less
