Beautifully clean room, helpful and friendly staff, and let me tell ya about breakfast... I wish I had such a variety at my house each day! Each morning I started my day with an awesome breakfast of creamy oatmeal with granola, nuts, brown sugar and Maine blueberries. Add in an egg sandwich, Greek yogurt, juices, fruit, cereal, and so much...

There is also an outdoor pool. The rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast is included and in addition to the usual complimentary breakfast items, there is...

This is a great hotel when you decide to visit the beautiful Mount Desert Island. Located on Main Street in downtown Bar Harbor, it is within easy walking distance of numerous shops, restaurants, and quaint (or should I say quirky) movie theaters. We went in the off-season (early November), so many of the places were closed. However, there's still plenty...

The Grand Hotel is nice hotel perfectly located in Bar Harbor that is great option for end of season travelers. My wife and I stayed the second weekend of November (the last they were open) and found the hotel to be the best option available even if it was a little short of "grand". The rooms are very large, clean,...

Rooms were large, very clean and well appointed with comfortabe beds. Staff were very helpful and friendly. A big plus was a resident laundry in the basement.

The hotel is perfectly located in the center of Bar Harbor and it's walking distance from anywhere in town and it's just a few minutes from the entrance to the Acadia National Park loop road. It is rather big, offering many amenities and accessory services (although we didn't get the chance to try any since we stayed only one night)....

Great hotel right in downtown. Rooms are well appointed and very clean. Staff was exceptional. Crystal made some great dining recommendations. Too late in the year for use of the pool, but it was clean and heated. Breakfast was super, great way to start the day, wide selection of hot and cold choices. Can't say enough nice things, we will...

The room was great - very clean, bathroom was clean. Only unfortunate thing was that our room was right next to the parking lot, so we had no view whatsoever. The hotel is right on Main St. so you're a quick walk to restaurants, the water, shops, etc. Would definitely return again!
