I booked 3 nights in Bar Harbor, because of its close proximity to Acadia National Park.
We arrived after dark and pulled in at the bright Holiday Inn sign, only to find out that it was NOT the entrance. The entrance was down a bit further. Once we found the lobby and checked in, we were being sent to a different building, for a room on the 3rd floor, with no elevator. We have 1 person with accessibility issues and can't climb stairs. The front desk personnel, had a hard time finding an accessible room and had to have help. The 'help' was rude and complained that I had booked that room. (It didn't say anything about no elevator while booking). She was very unpleasant about it. We were given an 'upgraded' room with a full ocean view. One that was over the restaurant and overlooking the AC units on the roof. A bit noisy too.
We also had a hard time finding a handicapped parking spot. There were only 2 spaces at the main building.
We didn't use the restaurant at all, but the laundry facilities were available, but expensive. The soap machine and change machine didn't work. Got change at the front desk and luckily, had my own soap. The driers didn't work too well.
The price of the 1 day was fairly reasonable, but the Friday & Saturday night $200/night was way over priced for what we got.
Pool & whirlpool were outdoors, which is great in the summer, but not October.
Next time, I think I will look for someplace else to stay.
