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...

Dear snowfall1, Thank you for the excellent review of your spring stay with us and for choosing the Bar Harbor Inn. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your room in the Oceanfront Lodge building and all of the activities that are just a short walk or drive from our property.

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...

Great hotel, we grabbed a room with balcony and ocean view. Slept with the windows open, so nice. This hotel was close to everything, can't beat the location. The room was decent and clean, looks like it was renovated within the last few years. A very historic property, stunning views. Make sure you make it to Acadia state park and...

Took parents to Bar Harbor for an early Mothers & Fathers Day treat. Everything in walking distance, elegant dining & breath taking views . The services match the $$$, Reading Room restaurant is a must.

We stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights and it was so wonderful. After reading other TripAdvisor reviews we found out that the 1st and 2nd floors have been renovated so we selected the 2nd floor ocean view. Jaw dropping views! We were blown away upon arrival. Made a phone call a few days prior to add an additional...
