“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

We stayed here for two nights. Prior to leaving, I read all positive comments on this site. I was pleased to see that the comments were right on the mark. The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were very firm, but not uncomfortable. The grounds were immaculate and the staff was super friendly. The continental breakfast was very good. The hotel is located on busy Route 3, but you would never know it, as most of the rooms are set back, behind the main building. We were close to Acadia and minutes from downtown Bar Harbor. Mini golf was down the street. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go back!

for a motel. large, clean, well-equipped rooms, upscale beds and sheets as well as bathrooms with complete amenities. very friendly staff. generous breakfast buffet; although labelled "continental" includes hot egg dishes too. location good: practically next door is the
entrance to Acadia National Park; the town is a few minutes by car down the road.

Room Tip: motel: all rooms appear to be the same

My wife and I have stayed in the Bar Harbor area many times and this place is the best we've experienced. Don't know what was more impressive- the cleanliness of the room or the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The room was large and comfortable and extremely clean. The mattress appeared to be new and afforded a good night's sleep. One reviewer said to get a room in one of the back buildings, but we had one out front facing Route 3 and did not notice any noise at all. The staff was terrific. After overdosing on lobster rolls and crabmeat, I asked Judy at the desk if she could recommend a good pizza place. She steered us to Rosalie's in Bar Harbor and it was great. We also witnessed the groundskeeper helping out a guy who woke up to a flat tire from a slow leak. The groundskeeper hooked up a compressor and air pump and got the guy rolling again. I thought that was above and beyond. The whole staff was like that-helpful and friendly. Breakfast was okay. If you stay more than 2 or 3 nights ( we stayed 6), you'll end up eating the same things a couple of times because of the limited selections. But they had eggs and omelets and sausage and fruit and cereal and breads so that you can avoid getting in the car, driving somewhere, waiting and tipping at a restaurant. Best things: cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff. Worst: the sun likes to rise on Maine at 3 AM. Can't help that! Will stay there again on our next trip.

We stayed for three nights over fourth of July weekend. Room was large, very clean and well maintained. A minor thing, but this motel room was the best lit I think I have been in, making it easy to read and work on my computer. Staff was very friendly and gave us good advice on Acadia Park and also dining spots. We took advantage of their afternoon coffee and cookies, a nice treat. They also had $100 certificates for the spa at the Bar Harbor Hotel for $80 and we took advantage of the 20% discount.

Highly recommended and the Best Western brand very well. Will certainly stay there on future trips.

I was surprised to discover that the Hotel had been remodeled and updated in 2009.
Tastefully designed rooms to enhance your comfort. It was all about client comfort;
ie; Amenities; distinctive bed linens, flat screen TV, refrig.,safe, double sinks w/great lighting, etc.. Upon being greeted by the Staff we were offered freshly baked cookies
and a beverage. Carol served the Continental breakfast (hot ommlettes, sausage,muffins, fruit, etc.) was perfect to begin the day. Carol was a superior guide for the Bar Harbor area.

Room Tip: Request a room in the back facing the woods

What a great place to stay. Close to Acadia Park and to Bar Harbor. The staff was outstanding! We stayed for 4 nights, and everyone we dealt with in the front office (Cookie, Brandy, Lisa, and Joel) were so very friendly and helpful. Paula, part of the housekeeping staff was amazing. Cheerful, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Hotel was extremely clean and had a great free breakfast. Even had a small laundry for guest use. Would stay there again!!

Everything about our 3-night stay late June 2011 was great. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was fabulous! The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the linens were a good quality. We did not hear any noises from other rooms or parking areas. Enjoyed the frig and microwave, and it was great having an in-room safe.
The best part about the room was that it was clean!

Room Tip: Check for corporate discounts as well as AAA.
