Best views in town. Very clean large rooms and bath with everything you could need. Hotel staff were mostly great. Hot tub and pool area and gardens are beautiful. You can leave your car parked in the free parking and walk all over town.

I traveled to Bar Harbor with my 75 year old mom, and we enjoyed our stay at the Bar Harbor Inn. The location can't be beat! We enjoyed the water-view room. (My mom would have been happy to sit on the porch and read her book the entire vacation.) The pool was lovely although the water was quite cold. There are 2 hot tubs, which we enjoyed. The spa services were great! We enjoyed the included continental breakfast which had a good number of selections including various pastries, yogurt, overnight oats, boiled eggs, fruit, bagels, and cereal. We also splurged on breakfast and dinner in the Reading Room each once , and both were excellent. The location really can't be beat! Besides the water view, and proximity to the pier for boat rides, we walked from the hotel to Main Street and Cottage Street and places in between for restaurants, shopping, and even the grocery store. The shore path is right in front of the hotel and it's also an easy walk to Bridge St and West where the Bar Island trail is available at low tide. The drive into the park is about 10 minute. Parking at the hotel was easily available. The only disappointment I had was the concierage was not very knowledgeable; I was able to get better tourist information at the Visitors Center on Main St and from locals that I met than from the Inn's concierge.

We stayed in a king room in the Ocean Front unit overlooking the bay. We awoke each morning to a lovely sun rise. The service throughout the resort was very good, and breakfasts were a great way to start the day. The buffet style breakfast included hot and cold selections, variety of beverages, and delicious pastries. One could dine inside, poolside, or take it to go. We had one minor problem during our stay and after contacting the reception desk, it was taken care of withing minutes. The location is perfect for those who plan to visit Acadia. The park entrance is just a few miles away. It is just steps away from many restaurants and shops. The infinity pool overlooking the bay is lovely.

We look forward to staying at the Inn every time we visit Bar Harbor. The infinity pool and pool bar are particular highlights for our kids (ages 7 and under) and for us, to relax after spending time in the park. The staff is warm and helpful, especially the doormen. The continental breakfast is a couple steps above a typical continental breakfast. The views off of our porch in the main inn are breathtaking and a great way to start or cap off the day. The price per night is steep in peak season, but can be justified by the location, natural beauty, and amenities.

Great views, good food at the Reading Room. First priority is not given to the guests staying on the property for reservations. Continental breakfast is a cattle call and offers every carb under the sun with very little healthy options.

Spring for a bay view if you can. I views were amazing. I loved drinking my coffee every morning on the porch. Coffee is available at all hours in the lobby which is great if you are an early riser. Very nice continental breakfast included in the price. Gorgeous infinity pool with views of the bay. Very nice gym if you need more exercise than Acadia. When I return to Bar Harbor I will definitely stay here again. Book early- I booked Feb 1st for my August stay and they had to search the calendar to find 5 consecutive nights.

This hotel is beautiful, from the gardens, to the lobby, to the rooms to the pool area! The bay view rooms are amazing! Staff is so friendly and responsive to any request you have. I loved their texting option for communicating for things, like extra pillows or glasses. For the price of the rooms I think turn down service or daily water bottles could be a nice extra touch. But I highly recommend this place. We had a very special time.

We loved the Bar Harbor Inn. We have stayed at other hotels in Bar Harbor, such as the West Street Hotel, which we also love, but now Bar Harbor Inn is our favorite. The property has everything you want in a resort hotel. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the amenities are are great. We are foodies and we dined at the Terrace Grille, The Reading Room and ate some food poolside. All food was fantastic!! We cannot wait to come visit again!

We chose to marry on the lawn of the Bar Harbor Inn and couldn’t be more complementary of the services they gave us. We held our rehearsal dinner, reception and a lobster bake for our guests on the property and had such great meals and professionalism.

Family vacation for 5 days in early August. Beautiful setting, 2 minute walk to downtown and welcoming staff. The rooms were standard - two double beds - with a small patio facing the water. Continental breakfast was well stocked and staffed. Fitness room has tread, recumbent bike, elliptical, Concept 2 rowing machine, universal set up and free weights. Pool was very nice and had two small hot tubs. Plenty of seating and lounge chairs. Staff at the pool bar was excellent. We also ate at the Terrace Grille. Friendly staff and great food. This is a perfect home base for all of the Bar Harbor activities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great value for the money.
