We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel during August, the busiest time of year in Bar Harbor, when it's nearly impossible to move around town in your car. The location was very convenient - it's right downtown, within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the harbor. However, since it's right on Main Street, the noise from traffic and neighboring establishments can be an issue, so it would be wise to request a room away from the street. Our room was near the back of the hotel, so the noise wasn't really an issue. Our room was quite large, and comfortable enough, but the furniture and the carpet have seen better days, so it seemed kind of tired. The lobby and the breakfast area look like they've been remodeled recently and were in much better shape.
Breakfast is included in the rate, and (despite what some other reviews have said) it's fine - comparable to what you'd find at any of the chain hotels that offer breakfast as part of their rate.
