I just came back from a 1 night stay. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff very helpful. The location was perfect. Breakfast was good, though not fancy. (One improvement would be to upgrade from the plastic silverware!)

we stayed one night in a large front corner room.the room was very well appointed and clean. The location was excellent; right on the main quaint street right on the main street lined with shops and restaurants and near to the waterfront. the free hot breakfast was very nice adding to the value of this charming hotel. the hotel also had its own large parking area which, in peak travel times,would come in very handy.

The first time we stayed here 3 years ago was off-season, and we were lured to this hotel 1.) because it was open and 2.) because it offered a great dining deal at The Reading Room if we stayed several nights, which we did. This time we had our choice of dozens of hotels and (alas) there was no Reading Room offer, but we chose it because we had been very pleased the first time. Second time visit was also excellent, and we hope we can stay here many more times.

Room Tip: The sun rises on the street side, and in June the sun rises early!

After arriving from Boston it was hilarious to see that at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel we received twice the room that we could find in Boston for half the price.

Rooms were clean, comfortable, and offered a great location - not too close to the busy shoreline, but close enough to the action that everything we wanted to see was a short walk away.

Having both WiFi and breakfast included were an extra bonus.

The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel was excellent - great room, great staff, great location, and the free breakfast saved us tons of time each morning! We couldn't have asked for much more for the price. Would definitely recommend staying here while in Bar Harbor. They were very accommodating when we asked to stay in the same room for our entire stay (we decided to stay an extra night after we had already booked so had to make a second booking).

This hotel has an ideal location and is within easy walking distance to everything. The rooms were very clean and modern, the breakfast had great choices and staff were very friendly.
Great view from our room and although it was not pool weather, the pool looked clean and inviting. This was a great base and we would definitely return.

Nice clean room, good breakfast. Make sure you take advantage of the manager's special for dinner at the excellent Reading Room on the Harbor. The front desk requested window seats for us on two evenings and we got them. Saved an average of $30 each night.
