Pros: view from our room was spectacular, balcony to sit outside and watch the harbor, spacious guest room, you can access free breakfast/indoor pool/spa at Bluenose Inn next door, friendly customer service, and it is very close to the town of Bar Harbor. Cons: rooms need updating, parking lot is a bit of a maze, and more space is needed... More

We stayed in an inexpensive room in the annex for one night. The room was basic but clean and comfortable. It was all we needed for one night in Bar Harbor. The check in was easy and the desk person gave us a good suggestion for a restaurant that nigh. We would consider staying there again.

The double king room was great for us - comfortable beds,. Good view of harbor from balcony. Nice coffee service with microwave and refrigerator in room. Large TV and good WiFi reception. The office was located at the Bluenose Inn and that was a little inconvenient when coming in late at night.

Not fancy but affordable and perfect for us and our dog. It pairs with a higher end hotel (Blue nose) but you can use the Blue Nose facilities/breakfast, etc. Lots of areas to walk your dog. Liked it a lot

We were booked for one night at Wonder View Inn by the Holiday Inn down the road. Holiday Inn express had a booking issue and gave our room to someone else (but that's for another review lol). We did not get in until midnight and the person who took care of Holiday Inn's mistake waited up for us. She was... More

Great setting. Beautiful views. Large rooms. Close to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The Looking Glass restaurant was delish and accommodating to dietary needs. Definitely would go back. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Stayed in Room 62, which I *highly* recommend--stunning views of the harbor, great balcony, and two bedrooms for families or people traveling together. There was also a full-size refrigerator in the room, perfect for saving leftovers or making meals more affordable.

This facility was no doubt outstanding in the 1950's and 1960's but by today's standards for first class accommodations Wonder View Inn falls way short. The facility needs major updating especially with bathrooms.
