Our room at Bar Harbor Inn was excellent. We were on the end of the building with a porch and a spectacular view. The door man at the Inn was a stand out for friendliness and welcoming assistance. The doorman and the helpful, friendly girl at the newspaper/gift shop were exceptional and standout staff members. We had one lunch and...

We were in Bar Harbor to visit with family for Thanksgiving. We always visit for the 4th of July but never have to stay in a hotel. We had the pleasure of being guests at the Bar Harbor Inn for the Thanksgiving holiday. The grounds are beautiful and there is so much history to the Inn. You can feel it...

Stayed here for the second time in October of 2016 at the tail end of the season. The leaves were vibrant. This trip was a last minute adventure, but we were still able to get a room on the second floor (albeit, sans balcony, but still a great view) of the old building which I highly recommend (...old, original building...

Just returned from a night at the Bar Harbor Inn and absolutely loved it. The reception was warm and inviting, with a large crackling fire and friendly desk staff. Our room in the Oceanview Lodge was spectacular. The views were wonderful and the room was large and comfortable. We had a hard time connecting to the wifi and the beds...

I've been visiting this establishment for approximately 12 years and the service, staff and hotel are fantastic. The staff are always friendly and very helpful from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. The views are so spectacular. The Reading Room for dining is great.

This Hotel is well worth the price of stay. My wife and I used it as a base for our excursions into Acadia National Park and we loved just about everything about the place. The continental breakfast is an excellent perk. The staff is attentive and friendly from the moment you arrive. You get luxury-quality hotel for mid-range prices. I...

Very welcoming place. Breakfast in main dining area cannot be beat for the food quality and efficient and very friendly service. It was so conveniently located --- right in the apex of why you visit there in the first place. We would definitely go back.

Amazing hotel - you can't beat the location, both within Bar Harbor and in terms of proximity to Acadia National Park. Friendly and welcome staff, delicious food, onsite bar, places to walk, comfortable and large rooms, etc. I cannot say enough. Breakfast is included. Easy walk to many shops and restaurants. I'll definitely be back!
