Terrible do not go…..
We stayed at the Inn for five days in August for our honeymoon. Upon arrival, I found out that the honeymoon package I spend 300.00 on was not put into my reservation package. There were no apologies and there was no attempt to make up for the mistake. When we arrived in the room, which I was told by the reservation staff was large and had a Jacuzzi and fireplace and private balcony, I saw a room that was cramped, sans fireplace and had a small cramped patio that had hedges so overgrown in front, you could not see the beautiful view of the ocean in front!
We promptly switched to another mediocre room with a fireplace. The Jacuzzi was so loud it actually vibrated the bathroom and we had to literally yell at each other in the tub. Needless to say the Jacuzzi was not usable. Money down the drain. It took two days and several requests to receive the champagne and strawberries as part of our honeymoon package (it was supposed to be in the room on arrival). When we finally received the strawberries, room service went into our room while I was in the bathroom to put the strawberries down. They just entered the room without our permission during our honeymoon I was beside myself. Housekeeping knocked on our door repeatedly despite do not disturb signs because they “had” to replace out bathrobes in our room. The dinners included in our package were mediocre at best. The steaks were overcooked and tough both nights. At $36.00 a steak, I do expect it to be cooked correctly and to melt in my mouth. Breakfasts were very good and delivered within twenty minutes of ordering. The spa was wonderful and my massage was out of this world. We did communicate our complaints to hotel management and no response was given. I am not one of those people who are never satisfied and it takes a lot for me to complain. This hotel is not worth the money it costs to stay there.
The hotel has a spectacular view but the rooms are as nice as any Holiday Inns I have stayed in…nothing more. For the prices we spent, and for what we received, it was not even close. I will defiantly visit Bar Harbor again but will stay somewhere different. I am just sad our honeymoon there was not what we had hoped. We did have a wonderful time in Bar Harbor nonetheless.
