We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and roomy for our family of four. It is in the heart of Bar Harbor and within very close proximity to Acadia. We enjoyed walking to all of the local Bar Harbor shops and restaurants. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and...

Spacious rooms, convenient location, and excellent staff. This was our third stay here, and we will stay again the next time we visit Bar Harbor. There is just no reason to stay anywhere else. All in town attractions are close enough to walk to. The hotel has plenty of free parking. Acadia National Park is just a few minutes away.

A very comfy hotel in the heart of BH. Rooms seemed slightly larger than average hotel rooms and the king size bed was very comfy. Bathrooms very clean and modern. Good options for complimentary breakfast. Staff friendly. Would def return. Directly across from Blaze restaurant and Choco-Latte coffee bar.

Very cozy place. Somewhat reminded me of my grandmothers house, but clean and well kept. I really liked the large bathrooms and how clean everything seemed to be. We slept great in the large king size beds as well. Very scenic spot and close to Acadia National Park.

We stayed at Bar Harbor in the off season--towards the beginning of November (2014)--and were very pleased with the location, tidiness and quality. The location is ideal both for exploring Acadia Nat'l. Park and strolling down main street to explore the cute shops and local restaurants. Would recommend to family and friends!

It had a great location. The room was nice and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the air would turn off automatically at night which made sleeping difficult. If we knew we would have gotten up and readjusted it.
