“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Great views, great price and great service. The service is good and the staff know exactly where to find restaurants, activities , etc . My family and I usually come to bar harbor once a year but can never find a hotel that we really like. So far, this hotel has been exactly what we are looking for. Rooms are very clean. We will definitely visit again...

The only problem we encountered was that for the second stay in a row, each of which was for 3 days, the room card was disabled after the second day, which is why this request came on April 8 when we weren't checking out until April 9.

Room Tip: Higher rooms in the new section have wonderful ocean views.

Living in the MDI area there are few options available for a great meal, especially over holidays. This past Easter we stumbled upon the Atlantic Oceanside's Easter Brunch through local advertising. We had made reservations in advance and I am glad we did! When we arrived the buffett bustling with other locals as well as vistors from away. There were a wide variety of food options on the buffett that even the most picky eater would have a plate full of amazing food. I never remember them having an Easter buffett before, but I hope that the Atlantic Oceanside offers buffetts like this again in the future!

The new building affords all of the best, beautiful views. The room was so comfortable and I was taken care of like a king! No one from the south thinks of getting away at this time of the year to get away from the cold weather and go to a resort that is surrounded by snow, but it was welll worth the trip. I will definitely return. Thanks to the resort team and management staff.

Even though we do not live very far away, we wanted to do something special for Easter. We decided on spending a night at the Atlanitc Oceanside Hotel in the Main Building and could not have been happier. They have a great indoor pool that our kids enjoyed so much we had a hard time getting them to leave. We also attended their Easter Buffett. The food was amazing and they even had great food options for our children. We hope to make Easter an annual tradition at the Atlantic Oceanside from now on.

We stayed in the Atlantic View building like we always do and the room was spectacular as expected. We were, however, amazed with the new lobby! It fresh, modern, and much more welcoming. The luxurious renovation seems to have catapulted the hotel into a higher level of excellence. The staff was courteous and friendly as always, but now seem to have a much tighter grasp on the guest experience. All of the staff have exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to provide us with a memorable experience.
I usually don't write reviews, but feel the Atlantic Oceanside deserves this one. I feel extremely confident recommending this hotel to anyone looking to stay in luxurious accommodations in Bar Harbor. Thanks for the great stay! See you in the summer!

Oh, the prime rib was amazing!!!! Chef Matt Stanley, and all the staff, thank you so much for the delicious meal you prepared and served to us on Easter. The whole experience was very special, including a visit made by the Easter Bunny to our table.

Thank you also, for supporting the Sea Coast Mission, very kind of you.
