We loved the location and the setting of this established hotel. The evening front desk staff were very helpful with our dinner reservations for the 4 days we were there. We could walk everywhere in town yet away from the crowded Main Street . They also have a very nice continental breakfast that is included . Be sure to have... More

Admittedly the rooms could use an update,but they are sound-proof and clean. Beyond that the meals are outstanding, that's why I recommend the package deals. Staff is freindly, helpful and honest. Great location on shoreline in center of Bar Harbor.

Visited Bar Harbor Inn & Spa for our 30th wedding anniversary. We booked the Autumn Gold Package and we were VERY pleased. Stayed 2nd floor oceanfront lodge- amazing view. Our included meals in the Reading Room were top notch. Loved the "lobster eggs Benedict" & the wait staff very efficient. Highly recommend the Lobster Bake. We also received nice spa... More

Stayed one night during our visit to Acadia National Park. You cannot beat the location of this hotel but the rooms (at least in the Newport building) where we stayed the night are in serious need of updating. Their decor remains stuck in the 1970's or 1980's. For the price, I expect more. However, breakfast was nice and the ability... More

My husband I stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn for three nights and was not happy with our accommodations. The service and the restaurant was great. Our room was in the main part of the Inn. The baseboards were very dirty,not enough hot water to take showers,towels were very rough. We will never stay there again. It is way over... More

We recently stayed three nights in the Newport Bldg. at this hotel. You simply cannot beat the location. The registration and check-out process went very smoothly. We had a wonderful dinner one evening in the hotel's Reading Room restaurant (see my separate review). Our room was a little disappointing, considering the price we paid. True, we had everything we needed,... More

Nice hotel in that it is a quick walk to town and the dining areas and breakfast room overlooks the water and is quite beautiful. The food is good and grounds are nice. The hot tub was not clean on our visit. The rooms are very disappointing. You think you are going to get this nice beautiful room based on... More

We spent 3 nights here during a two week road trip through New England. There was a special that included full breakfast each day, a dinner, lobster bake lunch and a sailing trip! The food was excellent! The sailing trip very relaxing. The inn is the best location in town, right at the dock overlooking Frenchmen's Bay. Our room was... More

The room is good but a little small. The location is perfect. We went downstairs and walked two minutes then saw a beatiful ocean view. The breakfast is good but would be better if it has hot eggs, bacon or sausage. I would come back if visit Bar Harbor in the future.

We just got back home after five great days at the Bar Harbor Inn. This was our second stay; the previous was three years ago. I would say that one's review might be biased based on their room. There are basically 3 wings of the hotel. One section, The Newport Building, where we stayed 3 years ago, is basically in... More
