We made last minute travel arrangments for Bar Harbor and needed room for five. As I wanted to avoid paying for two rooms or the mega buck suites in town, we ended up at the Wonder View. As other reviews have pointed out it is dated but generally clean and I would agree with that assessment. What other reviewers may not have been exposed to is that at least in the Hillcrest building, which includes the only suites, it is obviously a frame building and there is no insulation between the floors.
I realize that Mt Desert Island is an outdoor activity oriented destination but the five AM cattle stampede of the family upstairs leaving to see the sunrise and the six AM return stomping was not appreciated.
I am not a light sleeper and I usually can't be bothered to complain about rooming issues figuring I simply won't return. But when I politely expressed my displeasure and the staff member at the front desk spent the whole time playing with their computer I figured I'd go on record for those of you who care because obviously they don't.
