This lovely place has some nice history and has been remodeled to remind us of what the hotels looked like during Bar Harbor's boom in the early 1900s. We really enjoyed our stay and utilized one of the package deals that gave us a harbor cruise on the Mary Todd and a Lobster Bake at the Bar Harbor Inn. I... More

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is a wonderful recent addition to the Mt Desert landscape. It is located in the heart of Bar Harbor with ample parking (an important asset in this crowded sea side resort.). The hotel is a modern replica of the grand hotels of yesterday. It is not quite so grand as the old hotels, but it... More

Our second time at the hotel, and had a great room. This place is a wonderful value, free parking, breakfast, pool, hot tub, washer, dryer, and a location next to restaurants. Walk everywhere; and this hotel won't break the bank. We will be back! Book for your next visit to Bar Harbor

We chose to stay at the Bar Harbor Grand because at the last minute, they had a room available at a decent rate--especially considering their awesome location right in town in Bar Harbor. I don't know if the rate was less than normal because it was a last-minute booking or what, but finding a room in Bar Harbor for less... More

The hotel was very nice, clean and room was quiet. It is about 4 blocks from water and just on edge of all the shops/restaurants. This made it a bit quieter than the middle of it all. There is a nice pool.
