Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and Event Center

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2012

My three sisters and I recently stayed at the Oceanside in a spacious suite with 2 rooms and 3 queen sized beds. We also ordered a cot and there was still plenty of room for all of us. The hotel was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and appeared to be brand new. The balcony provided a spectacular view of the bay. The complimentary breakfast included cereals and breads with beverages. We all agreed that this was a bargain and was more than we had expected. The fact that it was so close to Acadia was a bonus! The people there were pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay.

we stayed here, in the new building, on the top floor. Our son had appointments at the College of The Atlantic next door, plus we wanted to explore Acadia National Park. We reserved a two bedroom suite so everyone would have plenty of room and privacy.

We found the room to be immaculate upon entering it, and the second day after housekeeping had been in.

The room was very spacious. The furniture in the sitting area and the second bedroom was comfortable and in terrific condition. The beds were very comfortable. The two tvs are great. The weather was hot and the air conditioning was effective and amazingly efficient.

The complimentary breakfast was very good with a variety of cereals including a crockpot full of hot oatmeal. The fruitbowl full of a variety of fruits was wonderful. There is also a menu for specialty items cooked in the adjacent kitchen.

The view from the spacious deck is postcard. There are two excursion and fishing boats that depart from right in front of the hotel, throughout the day for scenic, and nature, and mackeral fishing trips. Our only comment, a minor one, is we were wondering why the decks aren't constructed to be more private? A full piece of wall material rather than the angular cut piece would have totally blocked the neighboring deck. But that's all.

Room Tip: dog rooms available on ground floor which also have the same beautiful view and open onto a lawn are...

This Hotel is beautiful, clean, relaxing, staff is friendly, and just what the doctor ordered after loss of my parents last year. The beds are so comfortable and you can see a view of the ocean from them. I actualy took a nap for two hours and slept so deep thought it was the next day.

My husband and I needed to stay at place like this, the view is beautiful from your balcaney room. This Hotel is waking distance from town, and the area around it is beautiful. We would reccomend this hotel to anyone and we will be back.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balconey

Ended up staying here for one night on our travels out east. Right on the water! We had a dog with us and they have a set of rooms right at the water with a grassed area for dogs. They also have doggy bags and a garbage area which was smart! These rooms were a little dated but it could be because of the dogs. I believe there were newer rooms and I understand why they keep dogs down there. It was great for us to be able to walk out to take the dog to washroom. The guy at front desk was friendly and answered our questions. He recommended restaurants (jack russels across the street was great!). We enjoyed our stay there even though it was short.

I must say that I was very reluctant to stay in the Main building since its the oldest but I was pleasantly surprised.

The room is spacious and kept very clean. The decor is dark which I was surprised about given the Oceanside location but overall very good.

Other reviews complained about thin walls but for the four nights we stayed we didn't hear anything through the walls and we were the first room from the lobby.

The continental breakfast was fine. A selection of breads, muffins, donuts, cereals, and fruits. You could also order off the menu if you choose.

The location was fine. A short drive to the downtown Bar Harbor area. You can walk but if you're like my family, we walked a lot downtown so the walk back would be a bit much.

I would recommend this place to anyone coming to the Bar Harbor area.

Loving our stay in the new building. Oceanfront,close to town, and a view to remember. Shuttle to town although it is a pretty walk. Bar Harbor is a blast on the 4th of July, a nice, New England
experience.
