The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is pet friendly and very clean.
The views are stupendous
The one downside is the rooms are getting a bit dated, however for the price is it good value for money.

Hi, Thank you for writing your review as well as for your comments. You might have noticed that we are constantly improving and renovating but, as with most hotels, there is always something to do. Hopefully, if you return again you will be in one of our renovated rooms and enjoy your stay. Take care, hope you have a great winter. ~Joanne

I booked this hotel because of the Trip Advisor reviews. I was concerned because my wifes brother and his wife met us there and the choice was all on me. It could have not worked out any better. The rooms are large and very clean, and have a nice small balcony with a wonderful view where one can watch sunrise with a cup of coffee. There were the usual sundries in the bathroom and there was a separate sink outside of the bathroom. We found the breakfast to be very adequate for a hotel breakfast, always fresh and constantly resupplied. There was also coffee provided in the lobby all the time as well as the use of a computer if needed. The front desk staff were very friendly and very very helpful with eating tips and when to go where. The Island explorer bus stopped outside the front entrance and seemed to run frequently. We never had to us it as the hotel is minutes from the visitor center and entrance to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Im not sure if it was because we went mid September, but we experienced no parking issues in Bar Harbor especially if we went to town after 6PM. I definately would recommned this hotel to anyone visiting the area. One note, if you didnt book online and you have AAA, you must tell them upon check in or you will not get the discount

Hello,
What a great review, it sounds like your family was pleased with your choice as well. It is always difficult to choose accommodations but I've found that trip advisor is a great source for real ratings and suggestions. I will pass on the positive comments about the breakfast as well. Thank you and happy holidays. ~Joanne

This is a tired older 1986 hotel with a staff at the front that is much like the sales staff at time share sales high pressure! The view is great but you do not sleep in the view. The rooms are tired just like the whole hotel! The walls are so thin that you can here you fellow traveler next door cough at least I hope it was a cough. Unless you are heavily medicated you will not get a good nights sleep with doors slamming and people conducting a motocross overhead!

Located high on hill above the town of Bar Harbor, most rooms provide great ocean view from the attached balconies. It is a fairly new property built using mid-level materials (synthetic marble, etc.) in good condition with spacious, clean rooms. Staff are very helpful. The included continental breakfast offers cereals, bagels, English muffins, toast, hard boiled eggs, coffee and juice...but no scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, etc such as found in major chain hotels.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about the hotel. We do appreciate it. I'm sorry you found the complimentary breakfast lacking. We try our best to provide a good continental style breakfast. I will definitely mention this to the manager and hopefully if you return we will have some of the other items you prefer.

Our stay was not long enough to enjoy this wonderful lodge. I had a five-star view from my room, and the room itself was comfortable, clean, and spacious.

The newly renovated pool and grounds are lovely and the renovated rooms were done well. Staff are quite cordial, and the breakfast room is nice with indoor or outdoor seating. While it is a continental breakfast, there is a good selection of foods to fill you!

Give this place a try. You won't be disappointed!

We stayed at this Lodge for our 40th wedding anniversary weekend. I let them know ahead of time it was our anniversary and when we arrived in the room, there was a bottle of champagne and a note congratulating us on our anniversary - very nice touch! The staff is extremely friendly, the room was clean, the view over Frenchman Bay is very nice too. They have a shuttle bus that runs into Bar Harbor and then you can catch another shuttle to different locations around town including the loop around Acadia National Park. Would definitely recommend. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor close enough but far enough away. I usually look through Tripadvisor before I book anywhere and this was right on the mark!

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite on the fourth floor but every room has a view of the bay. The higher you go o...

We just got back from an eight night stay and just love this place. It was our third year to stay here and already have reservations for next year.The room is very clean, the view from the top floor is the best. Very convenient to walk to town or take the Island Explorer bus right at the front door. Steve, who manages the breakfast room is just wonderful. We saw deer in the yard most days.
Can't wait to come back.
