We once again visited Bar Harbor and we were not disappointed! Stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand for the second time. We were there two years ago and it had not changed a bit. Rooms are very comfy and clean and the breakfast is good. Front desk is very accommodating! Dennis and Norm were very helpful with making reservations for us for dinners and trip to Acadia National ParK. We ate at the Reading Room at The Bar Harbor Inn both nights for our dinners, which were included in our package. Excellent, that all I can say! Best 2 meals I have had in a while and our four friends agree! We will definitely be back to Bar harbor and will stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. Hot coffee and tea 24 hours and free umbrellas to borrow if it is raining outside!

The hotel has a good location, we stayed with our two children. The rooms were comfortable but I would have expected more effort regarding the environment. The breakfast was terrible. Styrofoam cups and plates, plastic cutlery. Not matching the quality of the hotel at all.

A wonderful place to stay when visiting Bar Harbor. Rooms were spacious, bathrooms were very clean, and the bed was comfy. It was priced right and from what I could gather from the other reviews, it was very well located in the town. Once we arrived and went out and about, we found this to be very true. We parked our car at the hotel (free) and walked everywhere for 3 days. The manager asked us to comment on our stay on Tripadvisor and to make any suggestions for improvement. The only things that I would change would be the continental breakfast (but we knew about this before booking, so no biggie) and the bathroom products were not replenished daily and the shampoo was a shampoo/conditioner in one-YUK. The front desk gal was not from Bar Harbor and could not reccommend any places to eat-what?? But, these were minor, minor things. We would definitely recommend and stay there again!

Stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The location is in just right location as it is just outside the hustle & bustle of the main part of the town. An easy walk anywhere for restaurants and bars. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms spacious and clean. Breakfast was also enjoyable.
Good coffee.
Good price.
Recommended.

Average sums it up, you could do better or worse. The best thing is the 3 day package where 2 very fine and otherwise expensive meals are included. Hotel is in a great location but the walls are thin and it is noisy from both the interior and exterior. Staff was just ok, seemed burned out. Breakfast, a hot button subject for this hotel, was adequate for us since we are just coffee and muffin people. Rooms are spacious, especially the bathroom, great water pressure. Would I go back? Probably not since we saw many other fine properties in the area.

Room Tip: Stay in wing away from the front desk and on top 2 floors facing away from the street. I imagine the...

I would have rated it five stars but for the wi-fi problem. We were on the 3rd floor and had no wi-fi access during our stay. Four trips to the front desk finally revealed the problem. Wi-fi doesn't work for tablets, iphones and kindles except on the first floor. They have a different server for the first floor than they do for the rest of the hotel. I had to sit in the lobby to gain access, which was a real pain. Other than that, they came up roses in every department (although I'm not a fan of continental breakfasts, I knew that when I reserved a room).

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good - plenty of food and a lot of variety. The location is great for exploring Bar Harbor and catching the buses to MDI.
