“Excellent Hotel, Great Value, Great Location”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We stayed at the Inn following this year's Boston Marathon. We found the hotel be a wonderful place to spend some quality R&R time.
The hotel is very clean. Our room felt very clean and modern. Probably just remodeled. The staff was very nice and helpful with directions around the area and amenities we needed.
One of the best parts was the breakfast they served. It went from 7-10'ish each morning. It had a wide variety of things to eat. They even put out a crock pot of soup each day in the later afternoon that we found very delicious. Also, they keep the beverage machines on the whole day, so you can help yourself to juices, milk, etc.
The location is top notch. We got up several mornings to watch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. It was only a 15 minute drive from the hotel to the summit.
Overall, we could not have been happier with our stay there. Highly recommend this place to anyone spending time in Bar Harbor.

We stayed there for easter 2014, some rooms (including ours) were freshly renovated. The room was clean, staff was very helpfull and nice. The internet was a bit slow. The heater/cooler fan was a bit noisy at night.

We stayed here for two nights when in town for the Mount Desert Island Marathon. The price was right, and the rooms were very nice. Perhaps the only problem was the elevator was extremely slow (so we only used it when we had our luggage).

The staff was extremely customer service oriented. When we needed some way to attach bag check tags to our drop bags for the race, the front desk clerk went through the tool box until we found a solution! I had expected to be turned away immediately. They also served breakfast starting at 5 AM so that race participants could eat. Obviously, this was a special event, but I have to imagine they have this attitude at other times during the year as well.

Acadia Inn is a great place to stay. The hotel staff was quite knowledeable, and the facilities were very nice. And, despite the best efforts of the federal government to ruin our vacation (i.e. - the 'shutdown'), we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days in Bar Harbor. If/when we return, we will be staying with you again!

We really enjoyed our stay (two nights) at the Acadia Inn. The staff was very helpful and the place is an excellent bargain in a town with a lot of overpriced hotels. I also really appreciated that they boxed and mailed a couple of expensive shirts that we had left in a closet in the room. Many hotels won't take that extra effort. While the hotel is on the outskirts of Bar Harbor, its only a short drive to the town center. Most of the hotels are located in that area.

Great Hotel! I'll be back to run the marathon again in a couple of years and will stay again.

I really appreciated the restaurant being open early for the race participants.

The only thing that would make it better is if you had a late check out for people participating in the marathon!

Acadia Inn is in a great location. The staff was friendly. The rooms / inn were clean and affordable. Breakfast was free and there was a large variety of foods to choose from. This inn was one of the only ones that did not require us to pay for two rooms because we have four boys. The only complaint we would have is the heated outdoor pool was freezing!
