Although the town was very mellow as it was off-season and mid-week, the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel was always a wonderful, warm, and clean place to come back to after a long day of hiking or sight-seeing. The manager's special price ($109/night + tax) was very reasonable and included breakfast, although we wish they We were able to make peanut butter & jelly snacks for our hikes and bring some fresh fruit with us too! The hotel is walking distance to many restaurants and we loved not having to drive anywhere (except for going to Acadia National Park, which is only a few minutes drive away). We smelled some cooking smells in our bathrooms occasionally, which was weird, but otherwise, the staff and hotel experience was excellent.

Room Tip: We had a huge corner room in the front of the building- great view and great light, but slightly noi...

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is wonderful. It's in town, easy to find, reasonably priced, very clean with good sized rooms. It's a block or two away from the water and near many restaurants. Walk everywhere, Bar Harbor is great. Easy drive to Acadia park and trails. Breakfast included, nice selections. Its great for a short or long stay, I will go back.

After traveling for almost two weeks along the East coast with hard beds and smoking in some of the best hotels staying at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel was a refreshing and wonderful hotel. To start with Dennis Clark, the property manager was very professional and made us feel at home right away. The rooms were spotless clean, fresh and the beds were very comfortable. This was the best hotel that we stayed at throught our travel. The breakfast was also excellent and the rooms were reasonably priced. I know where I staying next time I am in Bar Harbor. Thanks.......Dennis

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel was simply a wonderful experience. It's easy to find, reasonably priced, very clean. It's well located in town, a block or two away from the busier sections. Has ample parking. Has spacious rooms with comfortable beds and large bathroom with tub. Hotel is very quiet. Has in room climate control. Personnel were kind and helpful and clearly take great pride in the establishment. Check in and out were effortless. Breakfast is good.
Overall this is an amazing value and great place to stay in Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: Whole hotel seems very quiet, but I'd avoid rooms on Main Street just in case. In room climate c...

If you are going to Bar Harbor, Maine this is the place you should stay at. The rooms are wonderfully equiped, the service is excellent, and the location at the end of Main Street is walking distance to all the restaurants. Dennis the manager is wonderful.
