Our welcome was a little cool and not particularly helpful but our room here (a Mizzentop) was huge with a huge bathroom to match - all immaculately clean but definitely the best thing about it was having a small balcony with a stunning view of Frenchman's Bay. The hotel is large and consists of several different buildings for which we... More

We chose the Lulu Lobster boat educational tour which we loved! We had a wonderful room overlooking the harbor and... More

This is a very clean and comfortable hotel. We stayed 7 nights and enjoyed every single day. We had a room on the 3rd floor. Our units shared a balcony, with a beautiful view. The room was large and clean. The Inn offers a continental breakfast, it was simple but very good. The spa and gym facilities are excellent. If... More

This was our second stay. We don't usually visit the same hotel twice so being here says something in and of itself.. Very friendly, professional, and helpful staff. Good mini-breakfast. Keurig and microwave in place. Large rooms and nice sized bathrooms, but need better AC and less musty smell.

We stayed for 3 nights, and the staff could not have been more friendly & helpful. All of their restaurant & bar recommendations were spot on. The room was very clean & huge! I highly recommend one of the upper floors (the Mizzentop) as the views from the balcony are fantastic. Depending upon the time of year & weather conditions,... More

There are so many things to like about this hotel. The location was great - near the main streets in Bar harbor but enough distance to be quiet - only a couple of minutes drive to shops, restaurants, etc. The view from our balcony was terrific - panoramic views of Frenchman's Bay. The shared balcony along the length of the... More
