Our room, located on the third floor, was absolutely amazing. The view from the balcony, overlooking the islands, called the porcupine islands was an excellent way to have your first cup of coffee. Having a Keurig coffee maker in your room made it perfect for us. The housekeeper on our floor did an excellent job, talking to her you could... More

Room was on the 3rd floor of this hotel. View was great of the harbor and cruise ships coming in each day. Breakfast was nothing to really get excited about was pretty sad to be honest. For the price would have like to have a better set of options.

We stayed here for 2 nights on the third floor. The view of the harbor with a cruise ship was beautiful, but the sunrise was amazing. The room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The only downside was probably the breakfast. Not many choices. It cost more than we usually spend for motels, but it was our anniversary... More

During a last minute trip to the Maine coast, my husband and I tried to find a place to stay in Bar Harbor. Most places were booked. However, when we called the Bluenose Inn, Rowena at the front desk informed us that one room was available which she would hold for us.. Upon entering the elegant hotel lobby a few... More

Our first visit to Bar Harbor, Bluenose Inn far more than expected from check in to checkout could not have been better. When a Globus tour bus showed up, having traveled with Globus in the past and knowing they are strictly first class, we new we had made the right choice.

We checked into the hotel with no booking. The location is great and the lady at the front desk was very friendly. We obviously have different thoughts on what a view is. Because of the fact we were only staying one night, I didn't complain. Not all rooms have a view. Breakfast was included, no complaints there. Would I return,... More

The rooms are the very best!! The staff is very professional and courteous!! It has all the amenities you could ask for and more. We even tried the new Hampton Inn, but it does not compare to the Bluenose!!

We were in such a pickle after driving 4 hours only to be turned away by the manager (at another local hotel--see review) saying we never booked a room (we had a confirmation number and everything)--we were in deep "doo doo" with nowhere else to stay on a busy friday night --every place we called was booked!!

A very nice hotel. A bit pricey, but has many amenities we didn't use - an indoor and outdoor pool, lounge, etc. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is close to town, but woul be a long walk. They had a very adequate free breakfast which was not advertised well, but very helpful - with some cereals, pastries,... More
