“Terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Stayed here on a business trip while spending some time in nearby Acadia NP. Very new hotel, excellent rooms with windows that open enough to get fresh air at night. At peak season the prices weren't cheap, but for a Hampton Inn not far from MDI it was reasonable. While it isn't immediately next to Acadia/Bar Harbor, it isn't too far, and Ellsworth has a lot of alternative restaurants to offer.

My husband and I frequent Hampton Inns often and are always pleased, but this one was over the top. It was immaculate with large nicely decorated rooms and a full breakfast with lots of offerings. Definately recommend it except for the price which was quite a bit higher than most.

Hampton Inns are pretty reliable and this was no exception. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. The facility was clean, modern, and bright. Their recommendation for a dinner place was spot on.

Their location is about a 30 minute drive from the Visitor Center at Acadia National Park. You can stay at a nice place near the Park and not pay Bar Harbor rates. Good job!

Pros - amiable staff, very clean, huge shower with good pressure. Cons - scratchy sheets, crappy breakfast, and a smoke detector directly over the bed that flashed like a homing beacon.
Overall: a good value for us while visiting Bar Harbor for a couple of days, but far from the nicest Hampton Inn we've stayed at.

This hotel opened within the past year. It is clearly over any shake-down problems. The staff was very helpful, the faciltiy was clean and obviously well managed. The breakfast area was suitably sized to handle the number of guests, and the food was replenished quickly. A nice added touch was during breakfast, a staff member came around and offered small boxes of mints to take along for the day! My only problem was finding the place on arrival day, as I was using a GPS that didn't know the hotel existed! Dummy me missed it the first time through town because I was watching the GPS screen - the hotel is easily seen if one is paying attention! I would definitely use this hotel again - it is in a great location IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE IN THE HUBUB OF DOWNTOWN BAR HARBOR. Coastal Maine is beautiful, and this hotel is worth checking. Travel safe!

The hotel is only about a year old. The room was spacious, the bed VERY comfortable, the bathroom great. It had a microwave and refrigerator. The complimentary continental breakfast was quite comprehensive and there was a nice area for it. Loved the little mints they gave out.
There was a salt water swimming pool which we did not get to use. We did use the gym area which was perfectly fine for what we needed.
The hotel is outside Bar Harbor, but close enough to get there or to ay of the other islands without traveling a long period of time to get there. It is also across the street from a little mall and grocery store which makes it quite convenient.
Have a chat with Diane Partridge at the front desk in the evening. She has lived in the area forever and can tell you anything you want to know and more. She is AWESOME!
All in all this is a very nice hotel. We were very comfortable there.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to ask for an upgrade.

The Hampton Inn in Ellsworth is in Ellsworth - not Bar Harbor. It's actually about 20 minutes away from Bar Harbor. I'm not certain why they would include Bar Harbor in the location tag. We opted to stay here rather than in Bar Harbor, and were actually quite pleased with the hotel. The room was large and very clean (though the TV was fastened to the dresser, which was odd). The hotel corridors and room still smelled new and appeared to be very well maintained. The staff we encountered were friendly and accommodating. Of course, the free breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, but it was adequate and the breakfast staff were friendly. We stayed two nights and after fighting the traffic in downtown Bar Harbor, were glad to have this impeccably clean and non-crowded place to retreat too after facing the crowds in Bar Harbor/Acadia. Also, because you're not in Bar Harbor, the rate during peak season was more reasonable. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area (which we definitely plan on doing because Acadia really is special and worth a longer visit to see more of one of our nation's most beautiful National Parks).
