Our family of 3 stayed here for 3 nights in August 2014 during a visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The room was on the first floor and had a nice convenient parking space right outside the door. There is also a second floor with steps to a walkway at the back of the building where you will find access to the 2nd floor rooms. This faces a somewhat dark wooded area at the back of the property and you may want to ask for 1st floor if this is an issue to you. On the plus side, these rooms have a private balcony. Our room provided ample space with very comfortable beds and pillows. The bathroom is pretty small, but I traveled with my wife and daughter and it was never too much of an issue. There is a decent-sized in-room safe which is a plus for securing your valuable electronics when venturing into town. I highly recommend walking into town rather than driving as the walk is not that far and traffic and parking in town is a real bear. A drive straight down Kebo Street (which is the one in front of the hotel) will get you to the Park Loop Drive only a couple miles away. In the morning, there is a building across the street offering a very nice breakfast buffet that has enough variety to satisfy almost anyone. The nice thing is that there is tons of seating and we never had an issue finding a table whenever we went (unlike many other places we've stayed). Food and beverage were constantly replenished and we never had to wait. Just make sure you leave a tip for the staff in the jar on your way out.
I had originally booked another hotel several miles outside of town and after realizing I had booked the wrong dates, had to find another hotel. I am so happy I made the mistake as the location of Quality Inn was so much more convenient. You absolutely cannot go wrong by staying here if value AND convenience are your concerns when staying in Bar Harbor.
