compared to many hotels my wonderful wife and I have stayed in, the Bar Harbor Grand is a real value. The location is ideal, since you are well within walking distance of all the restaurants, shops and the port. The room we had was very nice and very CLEAN!

My wife and I plus 2 teenage kids stayed for 5 nights in mid July and it could not have been more enjoyable! We had a huge room on the 3rd floor street side. It was clean and quiet and everything was just right. The breakfast each morning was outstanding with lot's of choices and slightly different things each day.... More

We have a family of 5, so fitting in a single hotel room is usually miserable. We had never stayed at the Grand Hotel before, but it was so close to downtown that we had to try. Especially since it was less than $300 a night, compared to fitting 5 at one of the nicer hotels near water for close... More

The Grand was clean and handicapped accessible, staff was pleasant and knowledgeable and the included hot breakfast was perfect. Just about 2 blocks from the village green, near many restaurants. Parking lot in back.

Perfect location, close to town but not too close. Convenient to the shore path. Excellent continental breakfast to start off the day. Convenient laundry right in the hotel was a huge plus. All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend a higher floor as the first floor is right on the parking lot, we stayed on... More

We made a last minute visit to Bar Harbor during a week long trip to Maine last summer. We booked a room here the day before we arrived. The room was fine, but I felt the hotel overall lacked character. Would be a great place for families though because it has a nice, big pool. The hotel's location can't be... More

My family have been guests at the Bar Harbor Grand for several years. Each experience has been outstanding. Spotless rooms, comfortable, quiet, and a great staff. Sitting on the front porch is a treat, and it's so close to everything. Looking forward to our next stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bar Harbor Grand! It was located near all the shops and restaurants so the location was great. I place the highest value in hotels on cleanliness and that's why we chose this hotel. It had great reviews on cleanliness and I now see why. The room and bathroom was spotless when we arrived...

Location location location. Walking distance to tons of restaurants, beach walk, shopping, boat trips, etc. Quick drive to Acadia National Park entrances. Just up Main Street enough to be quieter at night if you're a light sleeper or traveling with little kids. Beds aren't most comfy but much better than our previous night at a Residence Inn along way. There's... More
