Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and Event Center
Ranked #12 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Sprawling resort like oceanside hotel, family of four, 2 days stay, beautiful ocean view spacious suite, comfy beds, free high speed internet, clean, comfy lounge sofas, comfy deck chairs in balcony, sumptuous complimentary breakfast, Nature or Fishing or Seabirds cruises from its own private pier discounted for hotel guests and conducted by New Horizon Cruises. Turned out a very pleasant family destination! Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor is just under five minutes drive. Highly recommended for families with or without accompanying children.

Room Tip: Corner suites with beautiful ocean view. Even other ocean view rooms should do well.

My husband and I stayed there for three nights this summer. It was just ok. The shower wasn't that clean, the look was outdated and service was just ok. This was our first time in bar harbor, next time I would stay at a different hotel. The location was good, but it was not worth the cost. We were on the bottom floor and could hear everything from the people staying above. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable and I felt sore from the bed.

Can't say more than okay about this place, it just looks shabby & rather depressing. Although our room did have a lovely view the furniture was gouged, a dark green carpet didn't appear really clean and there wasn't a hint of color or decoration in the room. It was convenient for our stay but we wouldn't go back.
Breakfast looked pretty unappealing so we went down the road to Udder Heaven and some great blueberry pancakes!

Check-in is smooth, the front desk is very helpful with local information. The continental breakfast is one of the best with options.

You can not turn off your door light if you are on the first floor with old building like building 5 or 6. And the door binder can't close so it leave lots of lightning during night time. It is kind of moisture and the dehumidifier is very noisy.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms at second or high floor.

Stayed 2 nights in a king room in the 5300 building and then one night in the 'mansion'.
Pros- 5300 room had sofabed (which wasn't included in online description) made it perfect for our family of 6, with our air mattress.
Front desk staff was very helpful
The mansion room was pretty neat
Both rooms were clean, first one smelled a little musty.
Con- breakfast is pretty minimal
Overall, I'm pretty picky and I'd stay here again.

Stayed: July 2014

Dear Michelle K,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel. As a large property with several building we are able to provide guests with many different rooming options.

I am always looking for ways to improve our services and I wanted to let you know that we do provide a full breakfast menu for those that want more than our Continental.

I personally love staying in the Willows Mansion.

Again that you for staying with us!

Tony

The Atlantic Oceanside Hotel was nice. It's a great location and very centrally located. It was close to DT, Acadia State Park and well as other sightseeing locations. I thought the breakfast option was really good. A ton of food, the room could be bigger but the great part about breakfast was the older gentleman that works the breakfast room. Here is someone that really enjoys his job. A friendly face each morning, always smiling and worked the room like no other. This guy is a gem, give this guy a raise!!!!!!! Our room had a great view of the ocean. Great sunrise and sunsets. We stayed in one of the 2 buildings in back, I believe bldg 4? It was nothing fancy and we weren't expecting fancy. For the most part it was a nice room however it did need some TLC. The screen door was off the track and actually broken. The microwave was unplugged (no big deal) but where it was located, there was nowhere to plug it in. We had to move that around to make it work. The carpet was quite dirty, there was wall paper peeling off the walls, and a few other minor cosmetic items that would help spruce the place up. The pools were nice but 2 times our kids went swimming, no towels. We asked the front desk on both occasions that there were no towels but they never brought any down. We asked a 2nd time and the guy at the front desk (not very friendly) said he called maintenance and that's their issue. To me, that's horrible service. It was a bit of a walk back to the room without a towel. All in all, a nice place to stay for a family. It has all the amenities you need, great location. Just needs to be cleaned up a bit.

We stayed in a two bedroom suit. Everything was clean and comfortable. Room service was great. Nice, quiet location at a reasonable distance from bar harbor. The view was spectacular and there are boats that offer tours at their dock. Brittany, at the front desk, provided us with excellent information. We'd go a second time for sure.

Hello Brent,

Thank you for staying with us at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and you kind review on TA. I am glad that you enjoyed staying in one of our family suites. When i moved here at the beginning of this season I had the pleasure of staying in one of these suites for 2 weeks and I too enjoyed watching the boats go in and out from our pier.

I hope you return to Bar Harbor and stay with us again.

All my best,

Tony
