Second time we have stayed here and did not disappoint, great location, rooms are big and clean. Breakfast is included and choices have expanded since our previous visit. Parking is on site and staff were welcoming and helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Stayed here for 5 nights, played in Acadia all day and Bar Harbor at night, the location of hotel is perfect for both. Hotel is a short walk to restaurants, village green, bike rental, and water front. Hotel is clean, quiet, breakfast is very good, and staff is courteous and professional, great place to stay in Bar Harbor.

My family and I just left after staying 4 nights at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel and I can't say enough about the hotel staff. Emilie, Tami, and Crystal were fantastic at the front desk. They provided us with great recommendations on where to eat and what to do. They went out of their way to ask what we liked... More

Rooms were on the 3rd floor. Nice and quiet especially the AC unit. We even had time to swim in the pool before walking down the street for dinner. Sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs watching people go by rounded out the day. Breakfast was delicious. Very good selection and plentiful. Highly recommend this place over a... More

We returned to the Bar Harbor Grand this year, after having stayed here a couple of years ago. And we'd stay here again. This hotel is a great value, offering a perfect location and great service. We'd come back here again. This is an ideal location; it's on the main street at the edge of the busy tourist area, just... More

Good old Victorian style hotel. Found the room amenities and breakfast nice but did not meet/exceed my expectations. I thought for the top dollar room rates the hotel was just okay. Definitely great location - very convenient Absolutely choose this location if you want to be right on Main Street, within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and waterfront Wonderful...

My family stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand last week for 2 nights. The hotel was great and right in town. We were able to park our car and walk everywhere we wanted to go. The staff was friendly, the rooms spacious and clean. I will definitely go back!

We spent a couple nights here and found the location was great. We also liked the fact that they offered a free breakfast each morning. We found the pool was enjoyable while we caught up on our laundry. I have no problem recommending this place!

We stayed last year in early August and had such a great time that we rebooked as soon as we could for this year. And the experience was fantastic again! We were five people with two under the ages of 12 and everyone just loved it! The location is so convenient to everything downtown, the rooms beautifully done, and the... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay with family at the BHGH, can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff of the hotel are.
