We stayed in the Stenna Nordica building, a more modest building than their Mizzentop building where each room has their own balcony. Our balcony was the main corridor for the building. Our room had good views of Frenchman Bay but if privacy is an issue you have to close the curtains.
The room was good size, comfortable and clean although the bathroom was fairly small. Two comfortable chairs, a table, a desk and desk chair are provided. They also have a small refrigerator and safe in each room. The building has a coin operated laundry room.
The building is made of wood and you can hear the people walking in the room above you and the TV on each side of you. If you want to have the windows open, people walking by on the corridor can be annoying. Possible this can be avoided by staying at the more expensive Mizzentop building
The hotel restaurants are very good although priced much higher than you'd expect in a moderately priced hotel. The staff is very nice and there was a very good piano player in the bar. The location is very convenient for Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor's stores and restaurant.
People complaining about the price apparently have no understanding of the prices of a well maintained resort hotel.
