“The little perks make it nice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Although it is not, it feels like a national chain in its decor. I was there on the last day of operation for the season. They had free hot soup, crackers, cookies, fruit available in the evening. coffee & tea available all the of the time. The breakfast was standard fair, with ample chooses. The location is very near the park entrance, and the off season rate was a deal.

Our children gave us a trip of our choice for our 50th Anniversary. We chose Acadia Inn in Bar Harbor, We had a great time and enjoyed staying at the Acadia Inn. We would definitely recommend it. The staff was very gracious and helpful. We had a 3 night package and would do it again. Dinner at the Bar Harbor Inn was part of our package and I must say the food and atmosphere was wonderful. The Inn was nice, the room clean and the staff so nice. If given the chance we will be back soon!

We would definitely recommend the Acadia Inn in Bar Harbor, ME. We were immediately greeted by the warm and friendly staff at the front desk and had a problem-free check-in. We were then very pleased to see that our room was very clean and spacious. Our room was cleaned each day and the towels were always plentifully re-stocked. We started each day with a delicious breakfast, especially the blueberry muffins. My children could not get enough of these muffins. We also enjoyed the french toast and the different assortments of both hot and cold cereals, as well as the always fresh coffee and the choices of different juices. The breakfast staff was always very attentive during the hours that breakfast was being served and they were always very friendly, warm and welcoming. We are wholeheartedly looking forward to our next stay at the Acadia Inn.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor, which was nice, because we didn't have anyone above us (in the event...

This is a great place to stay! I was here to run the MDI marathon, so a quiet room was a priority. Our room was clean, comfortable, and most importantly QUIET. The hotel is very close to downtown and the park. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was free/substantial. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Signed up for "Get away package" that included three days and stayed 6 days.
Accommodations (I am handicapped) were excellent, as well were the continental breakfasts.
Staff was extremely professional and helpful. Pretty setting, with great access to downtown Bar Harbour. (Shuttle bus stops at front door of Inn)
Bar Harbour has a REAL PARKING PROBLEM downtown, so shuttle was way to visit downtown.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Acadia Inn, crossed off viewing the sunrise at Cadillac Mt., took a coastal tour of the Bar Harbour lighthouses, enjoyed a great meal at the Bar Harbour Hotel,
(part of our package) and finally would recommend this Inn as a great place to stay when visiting the Bar Harbour area.

This place had the most comfortable beds we slept in throughout our trip. it is in a great location for access to Acadia National Park and it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk into the heart of Bar Harbor. The only downside for us was that out room was separated from our neighbours by a door and as they were smokers the room filled up with the smell a couple of times which was a bit annoying. But the room was a good size and very clean. Breakfast was good and there was complimentary cheese and biscuits every day as well as free access to coffee all day. But there is no doubt that the best thing was after a day exploring the Park it was fantastic to come back to a really comfortable night's sleep. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Don't have a room with an adjoining door.

Thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers on Trip Advisor. I am so glad that you found our beds to be comfortable, that is such an important amenity in a hotel. I am sorry to hear that your neighbor was smoking in their room. The Acadia Inn is a 100% Non-Smoking hotel and had the desk been notified while you were still here, we would have contacted that guest and made them aware of our non-smoking policies. I hope that this will not change your plans to stay with us in the future. Thank you for you review.

A wonderful place to stay very friendly, helpful, convienant to everything the park is amazing, restaurants in bar harbor are very pricey. We got some end of season deal at hotel saved us some money, went out of town for lobster much cheaper. Went sailing on the Margret Todd schooner beautiful seen bald eagles.
