Excellent Hotel. Better and elegant dining room. Shame to see at dinner man wearing Bermuda short. Friendly staff and crew serving at the Restaurants. Nice spa. Good treatments. Bar Harbor and Acadia national park both beautifully and worthwhile

My wife & I stayed at The Bar Harbor Inn (BHI) for four nights twice during the summer of 2016 -- July & September. In July, we stayed in the Oceanfront lodge on the second level, and then in September we had two different rooms, one in the Oceanfront Lodge on the first floor and then a room on the...

The ocean or harbor facing rooms have great views and the location is very central to Bar Harbor. The rooms are not very well noise insulated, which is an issue with high occupancy in season. The continental breakfast included in the package in the oceanfront rooms is basic and the breakfast room is bare bones. The main restaurant (Reading Room),...

This was our first stay at the Bar Harbor Inn, and we will definitely return. I didn't know what to expect when told to drive to the back parking lot, and realized there is an additional building to the hotel. The outside stair carpeting appeared to be worn, but once we opened the door to the room, it was plain...

First, know that the rates in April are excellent for the Bar Harbor Inn and quite affordable for the view alone, so this review is not intended for those staying in summer at triple the rate of what we paid. We stayed in the Oceanview, first floor,which is a separate building from where you check in and you should definitely...

Fantastic location right in Bar Harbor Village; walking distance to restaurants and shops. Only a couple of miles from Acadia National Park, which is great for hiking, bicycling or driving with gorgeous vistas. Hotel is beautiful with awesome views if you stay in an ocean front room.

I stayed 3 nights at the Inn, we had a beautiful room with a view of the bay. We were treated to a rainbow upon arrival. The staff was incredible. My luggage did not arrive and they fixed me up with everything I needed. We had a beautiful meal in the hotel restaurant. We arrived prior to season so some...

We stayed in a room facing the harbor with our own balcony (219). The room had a gas fireplace and a wall ac unit. The bed was a large king and comfortable. The room was very clean and the shower pressure was strong. When we checked in to the hotel we were offered a dinner deal for $43/person in their...

Staff very unfriendly. Got here just before nine and then tried to get a bite to eat but they said all the restaurants were closed when it was not even 9:30. Rooms are dated. Overall not a great experience.

Dear Michael G, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. We are truly disappointed to hear about your experience with finding an option to dine after 9:00pm and the way it was presented by our staff. Although most dining options stop serving at 9:00pm this time of year we should have been able to...

We have been staying at the Bar Harbor Inn for at least 15 years, probably more. We always try to stay in the Oceanfront Lodge. Our most recent visit was a long weekend trip in April. We feel immediately relaxed when we open our door and see the beautiful view of Frenchman Bay. The entire staff is so friendly and...
