The Bluenose Inn has a good location with views of Frenchman’s Bay, and is only a mile from Bar Harbor’s town center and an easy drive in the opposite direction to the Hulls Cove entrance to Acadia National Park. The inn is very dated but seems to be well maintained. I would describe the décor as 1980’s Best Western –... More

We loved our room with its incredible view of the water! No complaints at all, and especially enjoyed the piano entertainment in the evening. We were able to walk downtown (about a mile each way) and enjoy all Bar Harbor has to offer.

The Bluenose wasn't bade, just it was truly average. For a place like Bar Harbor, we felt in retrospect there would be nice place to stay. We did use the laundry facilities which were nice, but the breakfast was below average and the room pretty much like a Best Western

This was a beautiful hotel with gorgeous views! The room was very large and exceptionally clean! We had a beautiful room with a view of the water and a nice outdoor patio area. I would absolutely stay there again if I ever got back to Bar Harbor!

The Bluenose Inn was a perfect place to stay while visiting Maine. The large room with fridge, microwave, lovely fireplace and well-sized balcony with an amazing view was added enjoyment as we checked Maine from our fall visit "bucket list". Another added plus was proximity to Acadia National Park which is a true treasure. We were traveling near the end... More

Pleasantly surprised at the size and deluxe amenities in the room, Nice fireplace and balcony had beautiful views of the water. Staff were very helpful and piano player in the evening in the bar area was a very pleasant entertainment surprise. Only downside was the very mediocre (but free) breakfast which didn't matter too much because the lobby had apples... More

We went late in the season, so we enjoyed a luxurious room with a stunning view at a remarkable price. Nice people, very clean. Breakfast a bit weak but free. And no traffic downtown or in the Park! Yay! Acadia was great, but nearby Schoodic Pt. was almost as good.

A one night stay in Bar Harbor for a business meeting. The Bluenose Inn has a great location, built around late 1990s and the decor show it. But it's well maintained, the views are terrific, the indoor pool great and service friendly. My king room with refrigerator and microwave was huge and very comfortable.

I was impressed with the spacious, well-appointed room which included a comfortable living room area, gas fireplace, and a good-sized balcony overlooking a spectacular view. The double-sink vanity area was separated from the bathroom. A fridge, microwave and coffee maker came in handy too. Clean, comfortable beds, quiet surroundings, and good housekeeping services complete the package. Very good value.

It's a great hotel with the only complaint being the mattress was too soft for my liking. The staff was professional, the room was spacious and well equipped, and the amenities we're still available late in the season.
