We stayed as a couple while rest of family were in a rental house or other location. Perfect setting, staff were 100% awesome! Well-trained professionals, from front desk to housekeeping staff. Highly recommended. Comforts and amenities were worth the price. We got what we paid for. Paddy’s Bar & Grill on first floor was an easy go-to. Allergy safe for celiac and shellfish allergic members of family. And COVID safe, too.

Overall good (if extremely pricey) summer stay in Bar Harbor. My boyfriend and I (and my small dog) spent a long weekend at the West St Hotel recently. Pros: beautiful and comfortable rooms with outdoor space (ours had a great ocean front view), extremely pet friendly!, friendly and helpful staff, convenient parking and guest pantries are a great touch. Cons: room prices are STEEP (and dynamic! Rate dropped significantly after the 7-day ahead cancellation window ended which made me feel almost immediately “ripped off” prior to even arriving), while being super friendly and generally helpful, staff seemed a bit scattered and required multiple “asks” to get certain things done/fixed, additional “resort fee” is tacky at this price point — just build it in to the room rate since it’s not an “optional” fee. We enjoyed ourselves and the location and comfort of this hotel can’t be beat. Just be prepared to pay for the privilege.

We just had two wonderful days at this resort with two kids . The location is perfect- beautiful views, amenities, friendly staff and clean rooms (love the Nest products). Each floor has complementary Nespresso and Kuring, bottle water and whole fruit. The room top pool sunset is the best spot in town and the pools at affiliated hotels are awesome too- right on water, family friendly, towels, bar, etc. You can walk to everything, parking secure and easy (which is a feat in this busy town), and it’s just a few min to Acadia park entrance. The workout room is great and they even have bike storage. The golden dog Finn who hangs out in lobby and the crackling fire on our rainy departure day made us already miss the hotel. Staff is super helpful with anything you need too. Can’t wait to come back!

Top notch in every area. They really roll out the red carpet!! Super friendly staff in restaurant and hotel along with Finnagin the big yellow dog at reception. By far worth the money no matter what time of year

We have stayed here several times. Never a disappointment, great staff, nice products and super clean and comfortable. Great location. Everyone is super nice and friendly. The coffee counter on each floor with water and fruits is really a nice touch. The nespresso was broken for the first 2 days, but they got it fixed, just used a different floor.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel as the last leg of our road trip. What a wonderful experience. The location is best right in town. Views of the harbor and boats were incredible. Room was spacious and very clean. The roof top pool was our favorite place to recharge at the end of the day from walking around town or around Acadia. We ordered drinks and lunch and it was very good. Not overly priced like some resorts. We had a couples massage that was relaxing. We also tried the pool at the Bar Harbor Club- it was also nice- but since we weren’t traveling with children we ended up back at the roof top. We would definitely stay here again!

Absolutely amazing accommodations! Clean, beautiful and spacious rooms. The location is great, right in the heart of Bar Harbor. We all enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub right on the ocean! It was gorgeous at sunset. The snack stations on each floor were a unique and wonderful touch. We visit Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park each summer and will definitely stay here again!!

My husband and I took our first long trip without kids for the first time in years. We wanted a little adventure exploring Acadia without sacrificing luxury and a little romance. The West Street Hotel turned out to be the perfect place for us! The property was beautiful, the location was amazing, and everything was immaculate. The pool was also a huge highlight for us! Each day after early morning hikes, it was awesome to cool off by the pool and relax with some excellent food and drinks. Even the chairs and towels were so nice, and nothing beats to amazing harbor and ocean views while you recharge for a night on the town. This is the perfect couples retreat and our new favorite hotel!
