We used the package with two nights, one dinner meal, a cruise, and $20 credit at the hotel store. Everything was very good. Front desk was friendly, the meal at the BH Inn was excellent, room accomodations were excellent, the cruise was fun.....no complaints..... would recommend and we would go back. I was even impressed with the heating/cooling system in the room which worked well and was quiet. Breakfast was average, but coffee was good and available all day.

Thanks and you are so right about the meals with our packages. We find that even though there is coffee in the rooms, a majority come down for the the "liquid coffee" in the breakfast room. It is available 24/7. We look forward to your return.
Sincerely,
Dennis W. Clark, Manager

Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is the most exquisite hotel experience. The staff are so friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Our room was beautiful, extremely comfortable and clean. Continental breakfast was great. We enjoyed the workout room, and the pool. The location is perfect and we had access to many shops, restaurants, and everything we needed. From the time we checked in and all throughout our stay, we felt right at home. This was our first trip to Maine and WE LOVE YOU MAINE !!! We cannot imagine a better hotel experience anywhere. Thank you Bar Harbor Grand Hotel for your amazing hospitality and for making this vacation one of our best ever !!! We would most definitely stay there again.

We just arrived home from a vacation in Bar Harbor. We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. The hotel is beautiful! The location couldn't be better with shopping, restaurants and the harbor within walking distance. Everyone was so friendly and the price is right! When we return to the area, we'll be sure to stay at Bar Harbor Grand Hotel again!

We had our first stay at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel in June of this year and was very impressed with the accommodations: Neat, clean, whisper quiet a/c, quiet overall (great soundproofing), great employees and a very good breakfast. Parking is great so we could walk most everywhere downtown. We had an opportunity to return in September during a busy tourist week-end. We were having difficulty making reservations on-line for the accommodations we wanted so I placed a call to the hotel. The manager, Dennis, answered the phone (a rarity in many places). Dennis gladly and very happily I might add made arrangements for us to our complete satisfaction! He (along with the rest of his staff) is most pleasant and genuinely appears to be appreciative of his guests. Each time I checked to try and thank him, he was assisting another customer with a big smile. We had a great week-end overall and are very appreciative of Dennis and his staff to help make it all happen. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: This hotel offers rooms with handicapped accessibility.

We stayed here on the last night of our trip to Bar Harbor. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to check in early and made sure we had whatever we needed. The pool was warm and great for our toddler. I'd definitely stay here again.

We chose the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel initially because it was more affordable than the Bar Harbor Inn for our wedding party accommodations, although both locations are owned by the same company. I would chose it again for the friendly, helpful staff, not to mention a great location, comfortable rooms, and a better than usual complimentary breakfast. Norman and Dennis were both awesome! Dennis is the manager and went out of his way to call a friend to get our large group into a restaurant the night before the wedding. Everyone here was great during the entire weekend, and helped us with little last minute details during a potentially stressful time for us. Next time I am in Bar Harbor, I am staying here.

We've been to the Bar Harbor Grand many times over the year and are never disappointed. There is one thing we've learned to make the stay better. If you can, request a room on the back side of the hotel. Rooms on the front side can be subjected to street noise, especially early in the morning when all the delivery trucks are rumbling by.

But other than that we're always happy with our stays. The continental breakfast is basic but good. We feel it's just the right food to start a day of hiking or biking in Acadia. A bagel, muffin, and yogurt works just right.

The rooms are spacious enough and in the last couple of years they finally upgraded the room TV's to flat screen. But best of all they've got site wide wifi in the hotel (good work!). In today's mobile society having wifi is a big plus.

Every staff member we met was very friendly and helpful. That goes for the cleaning people over to the reception staff. We were always met with smiles from everyone.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the back of the hotel to avoid added street noise.
