“So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

The rooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent. It is within walking distance from downtown. The property is dated and the bathrooms are small. If you need the WiFi forget it. It rarely works. We were there three days and had to walk to the lobby to use the computer.

Location perfect! Just off ME 3. You can walk into Bar Harbor proper, which we did. Purpose of trip = visit Acadia NP. Proximity to Acadia entrances great. Now hotel: 1) Check in - I got a rate that I paid up front via credit card (charges executed to CC account prior to our departure. When I explained this to hotel staff at check in, I "read" a condescending body language. Staff polite but facial expression bothered me; 2) room spacious and fully equipped with frog and microwave; plenty of towels, sundries; 3) We stayed 4 nights. Housekeeping replenished all necessities; 4) Check out - fast.

Room Tip: Wifi seemed busy in the early evening. I guess due to heavy traffic by other guests. Other than th...

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor in them main building for convenient parking directly outside of y...

The location on Kebo Street was excellent for a brief walk to the harbor. It is very close to Acadia National Park entrances, plus for us. Just a scenic drive on a coastal road from the hotel. Rooms tended to be small, but adequate and very clean. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was as most Choice Hotels offer, good and hot and quick. Dining areas were clean and assistants helpful, refilling chafing dishes often.

We stayed two nights in the Bar Harbor Quality Inn. The location was convenient and price was reasonable. It was close to downtown but away from the noise of downtown. Acadia National Park entrance only minutes away!

Room Tip: Rooms were fairly sound proof! Our room was on the backside which backed to woods (away from the st...

The "Villas" are well equipped efficiencies in a quiet location. Reasonably priced, quiet and comfortable, free breakfast buffet very good, staff very accommodating. Very short walk to the downtown area made the 3 day stay wonderful!

Room Tip: Recommend a "Villa", a bit more expensive but worth it if you are staying a few days

I stayed 2 nights in this motel in June 2014. The room was comfortable and well equipped, with fridge and microwave. I liked being on the second floor since it offers a private balcony. Complimentary breakfast offered plenty for most appetites. And the staff was as helpful they could be - don't forget to leave a tip!

Oh, and there's a coin-operated laundry on the premises.

Though I didn't get the chance, it looked like a very easy walk into the "downtown" Bar Harbor.

I stopped short of the highest rating since entry to the room was along a dark exposed walkway that faced the woods. I was pretty comfortable with that since it's a resort town and presumably low crime. However, more skittish folks may want to take note and opt for the first floor which you'd enter from the parking lot.

Room Tip: Floor 1 gives direct access to parking lot. Floor 2 gives you a balcony. I was toward the end and...
