We had a room on the third floor and it was very quiet and comfortable. We arrived around 2:00 pm and were very pleased that our room was ready so we quickly checked in and were on our way to Bar Harbor. There is plenty of free parking steps away from the hotel. The rooms were spacious for a family of three with a refrigerator in every room. We had a couple of issues (phone didn’t work, light bulb flickering) and both were fixed in a short period of time. The breakfast area was clean and the folks there deserve kudos for keeping everything well stocked and cleaned. With Covid restrictions all food is prepackaged but there was a huge variety of hot and cold items. You are allowed to eat in the breakfast area or there is a patio outside with additional seating. Everything listed on the hotel website was available for breakfast. Housekeeping only cleans your room at your request. Due to Covid you receive a checklist daily to request any items you need (towels, facecloths, soap, etc.) and they are placed outside your door in a clear bag. This worked very well for us as we were only staying for three nights. Overall this is a great hotel for everyone but families with children will find several additional amenities. The backyard is huge with swings, bocce court, heated pool and hot tub. There is also a trail that leads up into Acadia National park for anyone wishing to hike. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Would have been happy if shuttle to Bar Harbor was running but we were a week too early.

I stayed at the Acadia Inn in June of 2021 for three days with my husband. Pros- The beds were clean, and comfortable. Parking is free. You are close to the park. Cons- The pool was cloudy and did not appear to be clean. The water was green hued and did not smell pleasant. It did not appear inviting in any way. At one point while we were staying a maintenance worker was weeding the deck by spraying chemicals on the weeds than digging them up. All I could envision was people tracking the herbicide in the water before swimming. For the three days we were there, the hot tub never functioned properly. For two days it was closed for maintenance. On the third day it was open, but in no way warm. I would have called it a lukewarm tub at best. The “grab and go” breakfast was underwhelming. Highly processed muffins, and a limited selection that never changed. It was edible, but that is the best one could say about it. The toilet in our room was LOUD, and finicky. It was fitted with a power flush, and it you did not jiggle the handle exactly right it would run for hours. Actually, everything was loud… the hallway, the toilet, the neighbors upstairs. You will not miss any goings on in the building as you will hear it all. On our last night we woke to the sound of running water. The unit above us flooded, spilling water into our bathroom. The maintenance person was apologetic, but the front desk was pretty silent over the issue. No offers of another room to shower in, or compensation for a dirty water bathroom. WORST PART- I call this out as the worst part, as if I was traveling alone, I would avoid this hotel at all costs. Our room was located next to the front desk. This means every time we went in or out of the room, I could see the office space. At least 5 times while passing the office the door was propped open. What looked like the master keys (3-4 sets of keys on big rings) were hanging by the door. Not even a full arms reach into the office. Anyone could have walked by and snagged the keys easily. The employees were busy at the front desk each time. This clearly is not safe to have the keys accessible to anyone. I fully admit that I am not sure they were room keys, but they appeared to be so. Overall I would give this hotel a 2/10. It was clean but I will not return.

Acadia Inn is well-located, only minutes away from Bar Harbor downtown. Their breakfast was much better than what we've been experiencing at other hotels during the reopening phases after the pandemic. Actually, the best breakfast we had among the ones we had even at more upscale hotel chains we had booked. Two things we noticed, though. First, the wall was very thin as I could hear from both sides of the walls. Secondly, the side door was not secured with key access, which was a surprise to us. Anyone could just walk right into the the Inn without any room keys. I didn't feel unsecured, but the building was definitely not secured. The Inn was very reasonably priced and a great starting point for Acadia National Park. If you're visiting Acadia National Park for the first time, I would definitely recommend the Acadia Inn.

1.2 miles out of Bar Harbor downtown, Acadia Inn offers more reasonable prices. The hotel is on a busy street, so ask for a quiet room. Ours was very quiet, and perhaps they all are. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We had “replenish” cards to hang on the door for replacement toiletries, extra towels, etc. The breakfast is self-serve, but the women stocking and cleaning were friendly, super efficient, and helpful. You won’t go hungry! Refrigerated mini pancakes, Belgian waffles, and breakfast burritos could be microwaved. A steamer had tasty, wrapped egg/cheese/ham on an English muffin. Bagels could be toasted. Hard boiled eggs, cereals, oatmeal cups, fruit cups, oranges, bananas, flavored yogurt, vanilla Greek yogurt, and pastries round out the buffet. Wow! While we didn’t use them, the hotel has a laundromat, playground, outdoor eating area, and lovely pool. The only disappointment is no microwave in the room. A refrigerator and safe, yes. We walked into town several times. Give yourself 20-30 minutes, depending on how leisurely you walk. Traffic is heavy, but there’s a wide walking/bike path to use. Enjoy the Bar Harbor Cellars, a winery just 10 minutes up the road. $10 tastings were very good.

This old lady has had a nice facelift and it shows. Fresh paint and updated features made our two day stay comfortable. The two problems we encountered during our stay was a non-functioning television and terrible in- room coffee. I Just can't understand why these hotels such pathetic in-room coffee...is it the cost? We do have a very special shout out to Gerald who went over and above his duty to find us a functioning television and then a functioning remote control. Thank you Gerald!
