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

This hotel has very nice accommodations. The view is fantastic and the staff works very hard to take good care of you. That, I believe comes from the example set by the GM, Katie who always seems to be willing to greet you with a smile and go the extra mile for her guests.

Friendly staff, wonderful views, great room & good food on site. We booked this hotel for our group not really knowing anything about it. I was pleasantly surprised how much nicer it was that I had expected.

We had a wonderful stay at the Bluenose Inn in their spacious room, with a balcony overlooking Bar Harbor and Frenchmen's Bay. We live in Bangor, Maine, but wanted to spend a night away from our kids, so we booked a room, which was upgraded when we arrived, and had a lovely time. The weather was awful, but since we... More
