This Hotel is well worth the price of stay. My wife and I used it as a base for our excursions into Acadia National Park and we loved just about everything about the place. The continental breakfast is an excellent perk. The staff is attentive and friendly from the moment you arrive. You get luxury-quality hotel for mid-range prices. I...

Very welcoming place. Breakfast in main dining area cannot be beat for the food quality and efficient and very friendly service. It was so conveniently located --- right in the apex of why you visit there in the first place. We would definitely go back.

Amazing hotel - you can't beat the location, both within Bar Harbor and in terms of proximity to Acadia National Park. Friendly and welcome staff, delicious food, onsite bar, places to walk, comfortable and large rooms, etc. I cannot say enough. Breakfast is included. Easy walk to many shops and restaurants. I'll definitely be back!

We just spent the weekend here and the views are really gorgeous. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, great location for walking around to shop. However, I felt I could only give 3 stars on this one for a few reasons. First of all, the bathroom countertop had coffee spills on from the last person who stayed, along with several...

Rooms adequate, little balcony overlooking harbor small but nice, breakfasts great as are all meals we had there, handy to down town so parking at Inn a benefit, staff friendly and helpful, outdoor pool nice when warm enough to enjoy especially after traipsing through Acadia NP all day

Bar Harbor is surrounded by Frencman's Bay, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and the awe- inspiring Arcadia National Park. We love mountains and the sea, and Bar Harbor offers both! If you are seeking a perfect place to enjoy really good food, a quaint New England town, and majestic scenery, Bar Harbor is the place for you.

A large resort hotel with blocks of rooms situated away from the main building. Room with balcony overlooked the bay and was large and comfortable. Had breakfast in the main dining room which has 180% views over the harbour. Best breakfast cooked to order I have had in New England on this trip. Bar staff not very inviting. One putting...

It was a last minute decision to go to Bar Harbor and we didn't make any reservations. It was a great time to visit the area, end of the season and got some good bargains. We had no problems getting a room, it wasn't an ocean view but the garden room was just as nice in the main lodge. The...
