“Beautiful hotel”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is a very clean, friendly hotel. Would like to have stayed longer. It's right across the street from the shore walk... a one mile path that leads back into the village, right along the coast, exquisite views. The Grand is very convenient to all restaurants and shopping, the staff is very accommodating and as I mentioned, the hotel is beautiful. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Ours was a 2 bed room, generous size, comfortable bath... just very good in all.

this is a three story property located on the edge of downtown Bar Harbor. Room was very nice and clean. Staff is very helpful and they have a computer available for personal use. It is an easy walk to all the downtown shops and place to eat. They have a very nice breakfast in the morning with plenty of places to sit. Pool and hot tub are a nice addition. Would definitely stay here again

No complaints at all, would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone that asked. The location was perfect; kinda-ish toward the edge of the downtown so great from a noise perspective and easily walkable to everywhere. The staff was friendly, courteous and kind - helpful with directions, activities and a recommendation to get a great burger. Didn't think the room was that large but it was ideal and clean clean clean (it passed my wife's white glove inspection (even the bathroom)). The breakfast buffet filled me up and had a decent assortment of food to eat. Like I said, would definitely pass along the word for the Bar Harbor grand Hotel ... didn't feel like a chain but the value surpassed one.

From the moment you are greeted by Dennis at the front desk, you know you will be well taken care of at Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. Dennis answers all your questions and gives great tips on visiting this charming town. The rooms were nicely decorated, and the linens were soft and elegant. Breakfast was delicious. The location is great! I would love to return.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. The rooms were large, clean and had plenty of draws for storing clothes. There was also a room safe. The location was a short walk to the harbor and restaurants. The staff was very friendly. The only negative was that there was noise caused by the plumbing/pipes in the morning when people were showering or using the bathrooms in other rooms. Unfortunately, we picked the wrong time to visit as we arrived late and Acadia National Park was closed down the next day by the government shutdown. But, the staff immediately provided us with a list of alternative things to do. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel appears to be new or newly renovated. It is a 10 minute walk from the harbor, hence more quiet from the tourist areas. Dennis and the ladies at reception were very helpful as it was the first day when all the US national parks were closed by the government. Dennis actually drove around the park perimeter so guests could be better advised on the use of the park. The small gift shop has some interesting souvenirs.

Went to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia and felt like the Grand Hotel was perfectly placed. Bar Harbor is small enough to easily walk all the shops from the hotel, yet the hotel location allowed for an easy exit to hike trails and visit the mountains of Acadia.
The hotel employees were very friendly and the service was first rate. The rooms were very nice, a perfect size, and very appealing. Got a great night sleep each day as well. Enjoyed the heated pool and the hot tub.
Our next visit will likely include a return to the Grand Hotel as well.
