The Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is centrally located and is within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly, and the room and common areas are well maintained and clean. They offer a complimentary continental breakfast with many breakfast items to choose from. We had a positive experience at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends.

Power went out during Arthur at an affiliated Bar Harbor hotel and would remain out for over 15 hours. The Bar Harbor Grand was very accomodating and we were able to continue our Bar Harbor stay for the remaining two nights at the same rate and in a great hotel. Thank You Bar Harbor Grand.

We recently stayed at Bar Harbor Hotel for 2 nights. The hotel was very clean, well-decorated and centrally located. Our room was very large with extra seating. The guest information in the room was very helpful. The staff was very friendly and eager to help and they had great recommendations for restaurants, etc. The free breakfast had a lot of variety and was very good. It was also a perk to have free parking. There is only one elevator which is an issue at busy times. We definitely recommend this hotel!

Thank you so much for your comments. We work hard at providing our guests with their needs and very happy when we accomplish this. Friendliness should always be the goal in the hospitality business. Thank you for your comments on the breakfast...pretty hard to go away hungry from our breakfast. We hope you will return.

This very spacious, very centrally located hotel is near all there is to see and do at Bar Harbor. The employees were very helpful and friendly. The lobster at Cherrystones was reasonable and very good.

This is our 5th time staying at the Grand, and we are never disappointed! Modern amenities, very clean rooms and very friendly/helpful staff! And the hotel is within walking distance to the harbor and all of our favorite restaurants! We usually visit over 4th of July- to see one of the best fireworks display around! We just love Acadia and Bar Harbor- and choose the Grand for a comfortable night sleep.

We spent 3 nights at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel and found it was perfectly located to explore Acadia National Park. We were able to drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain in 15 minutes one morning for sunrise (highly recommended). It is right in the heart of Bar Harbor so lunch/dinner is easy. The free breakfast was perfect each morning and the free parking was appreciated. We didn't take advantage of the pool and hot tub, but they seemed to be popular with other guests. The rooms were large and comfortable.

Thank you for commenting on our location. It truly is just a 15 minute drive to the summit of Cadillac Mountain. Location is very important. So difficult during the busy season to find parking. As mentioned our parking is free and you can easily walk the entire town from here and even catch a free shuttle at the Village Green to go to other parts of the Island. You'll have to come back and try out the pool and hot tub.
