My husband and I stayed in the hotel part of Bar Harbor Manor this month and we definitely enjoyed our stay. The hotel itself is cute, our room on the third floor was spacious, and I enjoyed the terrace. When we checked in, the gentleman at the front desk was very helpful and spent a lot of time recommending places to go and restaurants to try, labeling everything on a handy map.
This may sound strange, but the one thing I didn't like about the hotel was that it seemed to be made entirely of plastic. The furniture seemed like it was laminate, the siding was vinyl and the terrace was mostly plastic, it was almost like a toy doll's house. That said, this was a minor thing and the hotel has a lovely appearance and is very clean.
The location was perfect for us as we wanted easy access to town and the buses to take us into Acadia. I didn't realize until a few days into our trip just how far a lot of the hotels are from town. If you're planning on using the buses to get around the island, or make trips into town for shopping or restaurants, staying closer to town is absolutely worth it as it will save you a lot of time and hassle.
All in all, I liked this hotel a lot, and I would likely recommend it to friends and stay there if I returned to Bar Harbor.
