I thought it was a historic building that had been remodeled, instead It was newer hotel made to look older. It was clean and maintained to a satisfactory level. Seemed overpriced, parking was challenging because several spaces were used for junk storage. Once you make a reservation, you loose first nights deposit if you need to change. Probably would not...

I am glad you found the clean and maintained well. Not sure what you mean about "junk" in parking places. Should you elect to return, and we hope you will, check with the front desk and we will gladly assist in finding appropriate parking. If you need to cancel a reservation, there is only a $20 fee as long as... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel last week. It was a very pleasant hotel in a great location. We were on the first floor by the entrance. I wasn't happy about this at first as I preferred a higher floor room. However, it turned out just fine. It was much quicker to get... More

Thanks so much for staying with "us" on your Bar Harbor trip. My staff maintains the property well and I all enjoy hearing that fact mentioned. Our beds are among the most comfortable of any commercial grade bed and that is very important. My front desk strives to answer all questions and my young lady in the breakfast job does... More

The Grand is a "nice" hotel that is located at the end of Main St. in Bar Harbor. It's convenient, clean, and the staff is friendly. The rooms are nothing special. The breakfast is a carbohydrate nightmare. The cost is a bit high for what you get, but Bar Harbor in general is a bit pricey. Next time I would... More

I was surprised how noisy the street in front of the hotel was (our room faced the street) early (6:00 am) in the morning. Also the restaurant next to the hotel had a live guitar player that played until 10:00 pm. Mellow music but it sounded all the same. WiFi was very slow. On the positive side it was a... More
