“Good choice”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent location for touring the park, and Bar Harbor. We spent four days and although the interior of the park was closed because of the govt. shutdown, there was plenty to see and do, in and around. A friendly staff was very helpful with good instructions on what to see and how to get there. And where to eat. This is lobster territory and there was an abundance of choice. Bar Harbor is a jewel.

I certainly want to thank you for choosing the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn as your choice for lodging while in Bar Harbor. I am pleased that the front desk staff was able to assist you in ways to still enjoy the park regardless of the government shutdown. Those that chose to keep their reservations valid and brave the trip did not seem to be unhappy with that choice. Bar Harbor, as a whole ,chose not to let her visitors go without great directions and many choices. Again, thank you and we hope to see you again. Regards, Jane

I spent 5 nights at this Best Western in Bar Harbor in August 2013. It was a great value. The room was clean and comfortable size and the staff were very nice. I was traveling with my husband and 2 year old son. The beds were very comfortable. Its a little drive down to town or to the park but worth the money you save, although it is difficult to find parking in town. The rooms are set up to all open to the outside, where your car is parked right outside your room. The breakfast was very good and had alot of options, eggs, waffles, cereals. They did have a high chair avaliable most of the time. the pool was clean and heated the air temp was quite cold for August but it is Maine. If you are looking for a clean comfortable place to stay at a good price this is the place. If you are looking for more luxurious accomodations this may not work for you.

The only negative experiance we had with our stay was the first night a scam artist called the room at 1AM saying they were the front desk and needed to verify our credit card information. We notified the front desk the next morning and they said it should not have gone through to the room if the scam artist talked to the operator, but probably they dialed any extension to try to get someone. That was a hiccup and didnt happen again while we were there thank goodness.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I would like to apologize for the phone call issue. We have since, changed our protocol in dealing with outside calls. Happily, we have had no more issues, either. We look forward to having you and your family return for another visit and we will be sure to have a high chair available for you all of the time. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Warm wishes, Jane

We were apprehensive about visiting Bar Harbor since Acadia is officially closed. However, the great staff at Best Western Acadia Park made it easy for us to really experience the park. We were able to walk and enjoy the beautiful sights without all the traffic. This is the second stay at Best Western Acadia Park Inn and we look forward to our third visit.

We are very happy that you were able to return and visit with us again! My front desk staff each took the government shutdown as a personal challenge to see how many alternative ways they could suggest for our guests to still enjoy THEIR national park. We look forward to your third visit! Thank you very much for this great review! Regards, Jane

I stayed at this Best Western in Bar Harbor for 4 nights last week. The hotel is a few miles from town, but is a great place to stay and the staff is wonderful. The room was very clean and spacious and included a small fridge,microwave, and coffee maker. The continental breakfast was extensive and this Texas girl was happy to find salsa for the omlets! The front desk staff provided great information on local restaurants. The breakfast staff assisted us with directions to the sights on the island and in Acadia during the park shutdown. This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend!

We spent 3 nights here while traveling around the New England States. We had a very clean, well furnished room with a nice comfortable bed. There was an excellent complimentary breakfast with eggs, sausage, cereal, waffles, muffins, etc., and there was coffee, cookies, and popcorn available in the evening. Every staff member with which we had contact was very friendly and helpful. The motel is located outside the busy Bar Harbor tourist area, but close enough to the attractions for convenience. I would recommend this motel for anyone traveling in the area.
