“4 nights of comfort & Joy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

I had never stayed in this hotel before so I didn't know what to expect. I loved it. I walked thru the main door and heard laughing from behind the desk and that is always a good sign. Everyone was nice and friendly, oh yes and helpful. I loved my room so neat, clean, and the view was awesome. I ate in the hotel's restaurant and it too was clean and had a lovely view. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, if you are used to 5 star service they come pretty close, if you want to kick off your shoes and jump in the pool there is that too. It's an everyone's hotel.

Room Tip: tell them you want a room in the newer part of the hotel and on the 4th floor. Simply lovely.

Green Features: I noticed they recycle. Energy-efficient lightbulbs & energy star refrigerator.

After an unhappy night at another lodging in Bar Harbor, we just walked into the reception of the hotel. A very courteous young woman took our immediate reservation. We got two rooms in the newly renovated building, with a fantastic ocean view. It was much too cold for us to sit on the balcony but we took some great pictures. The rooms were great, the beds good, the breakfast enjoyable.

Room Tip: Take the newly renovated rooms, its worth the money. All rooms have the ocean view.

We have stayed here before and it is always a great stay. Location is right on the water and far enough away from downtown so you don't feel crowded. Breakfast was good as being part of the room. Our ocean view was great. We took the boat tour right off their dock. We will be going again...

We had booked this hotel form the internet and from the moment we arrived we were delighted so much so we booked in for an additional night. We had a room with a Sea view which was extremely comfortable and spacious. The view form our balcony was superb but boy watch a sunset from it worth staying up for ( I woke up because of time-zone difference).

The staff were extremely attentive and helpful and gave us some great recommendations for food and attractions in Bar Harbor. I highly recommend this hotel as a base to explore the area.

Incidentally we had a very slight issue with billing which we noticed on our return to Ireland and one email later the issue was resolved excellent customer service. We look forward to staying again some time in the future

Room Tip: Chose a sea view room

We stayed at this lovely hotel during our visit to Bar Harbor. We did use a coupon from a flyer and was not sure if we would get a premium room for the discounted rate. WOW! Our room was a beautiful spacious king on the fourth floor over looking the ocean. The bed was great and the room had every convenience including a DVD player. Husband woke up at 4:30am to catch pictures of the sunrise over the ocean. Best value we have had in a hotel room in a long time. Only downside was breakfast as they were out of most food at 9:15am for a breakfast lasting till 10:00am.

Room Tip: All the rooms have an ocean view so you can't go wrong with this hotel!

If you were any closer to the water you would be in it. Grorgous sunrise view. Cruse ships and sailboats cruise by. Very good breakfast. No issues with my little yorkie. All hotel staff was excellent. Close to downtown bar harbor but far enough away to be quiet. Rooms ol:der but clean. Rooms nicer in new bulding but no dogs there. Nice grounds relaxing stay. will be there again.

We were here over Memorial Day weekend. We had a room on the end of the building so we had a sliding glass door to a balcony and a window. Bathroom had window too. Microwave and fridge in room with additional sink in room. Nice spacious room with everything we needed. Beautiful light, nice view of Frenchman's Bay. Good breakfast in spacious room. Lots of choices and great service. Excellent value! Good location for visiting Acadia National Park.

Room Tip: I asked to stay in main building. Still had to go outside for about 20 paces to get to breakfast ro...
