Very clean, especially helpful and pleasant staff.
Sorry we had to go to a separate building for pool and hot tub, but loved both. Please include the brew pub across the road on your list of good places to eat.

We (3 cousins) came to the area for a baby shower in Ellsworth, but couldn't pass up an opportunity to see and stay in fabulous Bar Harbor.
Our room was a delight with a balcony and fantastic view of the ocean. All of the appointments were far above expectations, and all areas were immaculate.
The included hot and cold breakfast was particularly tasty, and had choices for everyone.
All staff we interacted with were gracious and pleasant.
I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it HIGHLY to all my friends and family.

I am a guest a few times each year at the ACH for business. I love the new building and beautiful rooms.From the person who took my phone reservation to the moment I left the property, I had a relaxing three night stay.

Clean room, great breakfast and friendly staff. My wife is a germafobe, so her only complaint was that fact that your maids wash the coffee mugs in the bathroom sink. They should be taken to the kitchen and cleaned in the dishwasher! Also, the hot tub looked dirty.

We checked in on Friday Feb. 14th. We were greeted by a very pleasant and efficient young lady upon arrival.
The room was spacious, clean and had a great view of the ocean. What really stood out was exceptional service from every employee we made contact with. We experienced a storm on Saurday night that left more than 2 feet of snow. On Sunday morning we went to a very good continental beakfast and we were wondering how we would get our vehicle out of it's space. As we returned to our room we noticed that not only had the lot been plowed but all of the vehicles were cleaned and shoveled out. Kudos to the entire staff of this hotel.

We spent a long weekend in Acadia cross country skiing. The hotel was very clean, nicely furnished, comfy beds and linens with easy access to Bar Harbor. The price off-season was certainly right. We would stay again off-season at this hotel.

The breakfast was okay, typical continental style. It could have used a little less processed foods and more homemade type items.

Room Tip: We had a balcony room but I think all of the rooms have an ocean view which is nice.

Coming into the area, new to the area, it was confusing and difficult to know which of the buildings had the poorly marked lobby. Once found, check in was done in a respectable amount of time by the front desk clerk. Who then proceeded to very fast ramble off a long list of information of things which included something about breakfast. I asked if he would repeat it all, but please slow down. I am sure to him he had heard it a thousand times, but to me it was the first and it did me no good to just rattle it off quickly. He repeated it again but in a very slow condescending tone! The room was in a separate building, with the best part being that it overlooked the water. Great view. I didn't visit the pool because I didn't think it would be advisable to get wet hair and then have to walk or drive back to my building in the cold. Breakfast was served in the lower level of the main building which was separate from the building where my room was located. Everything was scattered and had no rhyme or reason to where anything was placed. I didn't find the breakfast to be anything special and looked like they put more time into making it look pretty than to actually provide some descent food choices. Nor did I feel the mostly numerous choices of breads and pastries was very fresh. The hotel is far from town and requires a 5-10 minute drive depending on the heavy uncongenial traffic while dodging a plethora of pot holes. It should be noted that the hotel is on Highway 3 which is an extremely busy highway, which makes it, depending on traffic and considering everyone drives faster than the speed limit, extremely difficult a lot of the time to exit the hotel to make the left hand turn to head into Bar Harbor. We found the areas roads to be the worst condition of all the northeast states! We also found the locals very rude to anyone new to the area and showed their disdain to you by riding your bumper even though you were driving 5 miles per hour over the speed limit. The hotel provided a list of restaurants that were open in winter, but it was found to be inaccurate and worse, the front desk clerk showed apathy in regards to its errors. Few streets were signed, and those that were had such small letters, it was hard to see the name of the street to turn on, all the while someone is riding your bumper! With all the difficulty we had and the high cost, a good argument could be made to save a good chunk of your money and stay in Ellsworth, and instead just making a quick in-and-out trip to Acadia or Bar Harbor.
