“Convenient and Great Views too!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have stayed at AO three times in the last two months and have had good experiences each time. The views are incredible from the private balconies in each room I have stayed in building four and building six, both have been clean and comfortable. Overall very pleasant place to stay and convenient to get to and close to down town.

The pictures and description of The Willows accommodations is exactly what we experienced. The view from our patio was gorgeous - pictures do not do it justice. For us, Bar Harbor was a 25-minute walk from the Willows but if you are not up for a walk, the At Your Service Taxi and Tours will take you into town at a VERY reasonable price and their drivers were very fun and friendly. Fishing charter and site seeing boats were both accessible from the dock behind The Willows. Our package included a choice of any breakfast item on the menu and they offered an extensive complimentary continental breakfast as well. The breakfast food was excellent! The only negatives for us was the outside hot tub was not clean - this could have been the time of year we were there - however, if they stopped cleaning it they should have closed down the pool/hot tub area. We felt the indoor hot tub had too many chemicals. Our room was large and beautiful. The bathroom was quaint but needed more shelves or a small table to hold personal items.

Room Tip: We went with a group of friends and were able to see the views from four rooms. Every room had a bea...

A pleasant surprise from the check in staff to the bartender and waitstaff in the bistro, these people know customer service!!! Everyone was so very helpful leading my wife and I to local entertainment places and directing us to some beautiful hikes up Cadillac mountain and Dorr mnt. We were late getting back to check out because of a mix up beyond our control and the desk staff Matt, the bistro mgr Eric, and the hotel mgr Julius were so nice to us , they had every opportunity to force us to pay for an additional night stay, or even a late check out fee, but did not. I really felt like they wanted us to come back and visit again. For this type of service I rate this clean, professionally well staffed resort with 5 Stars !!! My wife and I will be back again! Guaranteed! Thank you Atlantic Oceanside . By the way did I mention this was our tenth year anniversary ? We will always remember our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 5300's

Loved our stay at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel. The room was clean, the bed was very comfy, but the view was just amazing. We were sitting on our deck the last day and a bald eagle flew right in front of us!!
Definitely recommend this very nice hotel. Very nice, well managed continental breakfast.

Room Tip: would definitely pick the top floor in the main building

Our recent stay in Bar Harbor was well supported by our hotel and its staff. From the point of contact our questions and reservations were addressed in a timely and efficient manner. Kudos to Matt, he made it happen prior to arrival and at check-in. The location was great because they have on-property access to the Nature Cruise ferry ( hotel discount too), plus just minutes from town, and close to the Acadia Park entrance. The room was large, clean and had a balcony with a nice view. No doubt, the continental breakfast was great. A bit busy, but it gave us the opportunity to share our table and meet other hotel guests. Overall, it was more than we would normally spend on a room, but for a special treat, it was well worth the up-charge. Well done.

We spent two nights here in September. It was clean, nicely decorated and close to Arcadia National Park. Being right on the water only added to the atmosphere. Morning breakfast was excellent, who has fresh strawberries and kiwi at an included breakfast!
