Rooms are okay for the price but nothing out standing. Breakfast is good. The weakest element is house keeping. In that area, Acadia inn would be much better hotel if you can get a good deal there. One of the room we got was full with lobster odour. After a long conversation with the hotel manager she took 50% off from my room rate. Breakfast was good. Front desk manager was very hardworking and she treid to resolve the odor problem, but there was no support from house keeping.

Thank you for your positive comments about our complimentary breakfast and that our rates were in line with your expectations.
I am sorry that there was a problem with an odor in your room when you arrived. It seems it must have been a residual food odor that we had not completely eliminated. We did try to alleviate the situation by arranging for a move to a larger, upgraded room at no extra charge. I am sorry that you preferred not to move since I am sure that would have made your stay more enjoyable.
I do hope that you will consider staying with us again and allow us an opportunity to make it up to you.
Regards, Jane

We visited Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor this fall. We stayed three nights at this Best Western. Location is great for those visiting the park during the day and going into Bar Harbor at night. Room was comfortable, breakfast was good (although the serving area is small). The staff there is very knowledgeable about the area and willing to share information. We would gladly stay here again if we were vacationing in Maine.

Acadia Park was on my 85 year-old Mom's bucket list. Reservations were made and the government shut-down subsequently closed the park before our arrival. Long story short - we went anyway - not expecting much. This very reasonably priced hotel was unequivocally the best I have ever experienced. Every staff member we encountered bent over backwards to insure we knew how to see the park from afar since my Mom could not walk in. The front desk staff, an amazing breakfast lady, and a super sweet cleaning person made this visit the best! Their recommendations for dining and other activities in the area saved the day. The room was immaculate and the cleaning person checked in with us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. Everyone was just so darn nice, it could not have been better! The front desk staff made arrangements for us to stay close to the airport in Boston on the first floor because of my Mom's mobility issues. This was a really professional team. They stepped up to the challenge of disappointed guests and turned it around. Can we get them to run for congress?

It was certainly a pleasure to assist you and your mother with your sightseeing plans and all aspects of your stay (and even your next stay in Boston!). I believe visiting Acadia National Park is a great item to have on one’s bucket list. I am very happy that your Mom can scratch that one off and enjoyed it even though it was during the government shutdown. I do not believe that anyone here will be running for Congress, although it might not hurt! (Smile). We so appreciate your wonderful review and compliments! Please stay with us again. Regards, Jane

We spent 5 nights during the Government shut down! Almost cancelled because our primary reason to visit the area was to hike in Acadia National Park. We read online that there was plenty of things to do in the area despite the shut down so we decided to go anyway. The first morning we were there we found out (in the breakfast room) that we could hike or ride bikes in the park but just could not drive in so we were very excited about that news. We had to park along the roads and walk in.

The hotel is located about 1 mile from the Hull Cove park entrance so very convenient. However, it is about 4-5 miles from the town of Bar Harbor. Not really a problem though because parking in town was not a problem and if you visit before Columbus Day weekend there is a shuttle you can take from the hotel into town (the shuttle stops after that).

Carol in the breakfast room is amazing. She will get you started with ideas for your day. There is a very nice grocery store in town on Cottage Street so we stocked up on water and some sandwich supplies for our hikes along with a good map of the Mount Desert Island & Acadia National Park hiking trails & carriage roads by Map Parkman(well worth the $6).

We are so happy that you decided to come to Bar Harbor in spite of the government shutdown. Five nights with us is awesome. Thank you for choosing the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn as your lodging choice. Carole in breakfast and the front desk staff were able to help most guests access the park for biking and hiking. They all have terrific knowledge of the area and they are always happy to pass it along to our guests. Thank you and please come back and see us again. Regards, Jane

The hotel staff and environment overall were outstanding. The front desk staff were extremely patient, friendly and very informative about the area from restaurants the locals love to the best routes for getting around and places to avoid. We could not have been luckier to have them!

We came during the government shut down! The front desk and breakfast room staff were so helpful with directions on how to get to hiking trails in Acadia National Park during this time! The rooms were clean! The hotel was well situated. We liked being outside of the busy part of Bar Harbor!!!! It was quiet and relaxing at the end of the day! Especially with the fresh coffee and cookies in the lobby each afternoon! The cookies were the best ever!!! I wish they could send me a dozen of the chocolate chip each month!!! :-)
