“Quiet and spotless”

Our second time here for our February getaway to Maine and traveling with a dog. Room was spotless and nicely updated since our last visit. Good continental breakfast and pleasant staff. We'll be back!

We celebrated our 20th anniversary here. Room was VERY clean, large with nice sitting area. Staff was very accommodating and covered all the details - right down to making our dinner reservation for us. They have a pool and hot tub, too. GREAT view from our room! Had a wine & dine package (at Mama DiMatteo's) which was delicious. Wine & chocolates delivered to the room. Great value for the cost - would definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: 4th floor has a direct view on the ocean!

We had a wonderful experience here! We had purchased a deal that included a bottle of wine and delicious chocolates delivered to the room. Our room was clean and pretty and we had a gorgeous ocean view. I liked the quality and scent of the shampoo, conditioner and lotion in the room :) The gift shop had a great selection of books and treats and we were walking distance to Jack Russell's Steakhouse where we had a delicious valentine's dinner and more wine :) Would absolutely recommend this and would stay again in a heartbeat.

While not in the throws of Bar Harbor, you're just a mile or two away -- and away from the cruises! Atlantic Oceanside is clean, quiet, and scenic. It seems like a big complex but in reality is really very quaint. Time to Bar Harbor by car is measured in single minutes. Front desk personnel are amazingly friendly and helpful, defining hospitality.

I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The edges are a little frayed in a few places, the free breakfast is ordinary and fairly mediocre, the feeling overall is just a little bit dated. But the furnishings in the room are wonderful, the service is excellent, and the view is just beautiful. And it is the only hotel on the ocean in Bar Harbor that is open year round. All in all it is a good bet.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view--some are closer to the water than the others.

totally decent. There are two parts; "old" and "new" building. The lobby is a little dated but the room was beautiful, clean, WiFi, spacious, with a wide open view of the Bay. Everything was terrific. Only points off are the breakfast. Forget about it....cereals and feeble bagels. But I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: about 1 mile walk into downtown Bar Harbor

We knew when we walked into our room that we would have a comfortable stay. It has become very important to us to have space, a fridge and microwave, and a comfortable bed. Now I move on to the balcony overlooking the water, the bathroom with a spacious modern shower, and being able to have our well behaved dog with us. Even though the date was November 10, we were fortunate to have beautiful weather and could listen to the ocean sounds. Our reason for coming to Bar Harbor was for the annual pajama sale and the bed race. We absolutely enjoyed both and have already planned to return next year. We were able to do plenty of hiking and ate in a number of local restaurants that were still open. I must also add that my wonderful hubby returned to our room in the AM with a tray of fresh fruit and yogurt, two doughnuts and juice. I had already made coffee in the room. We enjoyed our three nights very much and will return. Atlantic Oceanside made a positive impression. We were a few minutes drive from town and parking is not an issue at this time of year.

Room Tip: You definitely want a room overlooking the ocean. We were on the 4th floor in the lower left buildi...
