My fiance and I are from Jersey and decided to take a weekend trip up to Bar harbor, Maine.... Long story short, the trip didn't turn out as planned, our car broke down in the Bar Harbor inns parking lot Saturday night. The timing couldn't of possibly been worse.. seeing that Sunday was Easter and we both had to be back in Jersey by Monday morning for work..After trying for a few hours to get the car running, we decided to call it a night and figure out how we were going to get home in the morning..Not only was the room clean and beautifully decorated the staff to say the least, were simply amazing..(maintenance, the GM, front Desk..all of them) The next morning, Will from the inns maintenance department went out of his way to help us..not only did he get the car running good enough to drive to the closest mechanic in town, he also offered to drive us to the airport so we could rent a car to get home..Seeing that it was Easter, Bangor Airport (about an 45 minutes from bar harbor) was the only one open...Will was such a genuinely nice guy who we cant thank enough...To say the staff there goes above and beyond for there customers is a understatement..I would & will recommend The Bar Harbor Inn to everyone..Cant say enough about this place & their staff.!!! Cant wait to visit again.."maybe just by plane next time" =]



Thanks again

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn and had a great experience. The view was beautiful overlooking the bay. The room was comfortable and the continental breakfast was a very good and had a good variety of things to eat. The staff were all very friendly and helpful even when we arrived at 2am to check in. We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a bay side view.

I took my husband to Bar Harbor Maine and this was both of our first time here and we absolutely loved it! The hotel was great and the service was too! Definitely will go back again! We went on the season opening weekend so we didn't have to deal with the large crowds that we heard about and it made the experience that much better. There still was quite a bit of people there but such a lovely place. Relaxing

LOVED this place!! It's very clean, beautiful grounds and surrounding, even if you don't have an oven view room, it's ok, you will still love it. The restaurant room is just so pretty. Eating breakfast is amazing, you have an amazing view of the ocean with cruise ships coming into dock, and great food! Best of all you just walk from your hotel to tour the town which is right there, and the hotel is just a hop skip jump from Acadia which is NOT to be missed.

Historic hotel in the town of Bar Harbor, Maine, it was fantastic to walk around and enjoy the breeze off the water, watching the boats come in, and all the specialties of the hotel. The dinner was fantastic in the hotel and we had the best lobster ever! We chose a package deal and got dinner free with our stay. The dessert selection was amazing and the cheesecake was fantastic! The hotel is a short drive from Acadia National Park and it is very interesting as so much to see there as well. The town of Bar Harbor has wonderful art shops and quaint stores to browse through also. The spa is invigorating and average in price for a spa and had a massage that really helped my back and shoulders after riding in the car for over twelve hours. Very nice place and very relaxing. Would visit again. Nice for families also. Free continental breakfast with wonderful fresh fruit!!!!!

Room Tip: Watch for advertised specials around the holidays. We got a package that included dinner and gift ca...

I performed at this Inn for a wedding ceremony & reception. It was a remarkable property with an amazing view, beautiful grounds, and very good service. This Inn is fully equipped through & through! I highly recommend this Inn to anyone honeymooning, or getting married (for their wedding & or reception).

We stayed at BHI in 2011, and in retrospect, I wish I had worked for companies that were as well-organized & efficient. Perfect location, very nice accommodations, a staff that you'd like to know in your own home town; complete lack of the "tourist hustle" that can and does ruin trips anywhere. We're booking again this summer for five days and are looking forward to arriving. Thank you.

P.S. Computer did not allow posting without the date stayed at the hotel - but did not offer "2011." So "February 2012" was selected under duress; disregard.

Room Tip: Marry a beautiful lady and it won't matter what room you're in.
