“Good Value with Nice View”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We took advantage of the Tripadvisor special and stayed in this hotel for three nights. We were in the original building but still had a nice view of the water. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator. We loved the balcony. Wifi was intermittent but not a big deal. Location was convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We took the Bar Harbor Maine Puffin, Seabird and Lighthouse Cruise which leaves from the hotel - highly recommend it. I would definitely stay here at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel & Event Center again.

My wife and I spent 4 nights here recently. It is a beautiful location a few minutes outside Bar Harbor. Our room wart right on the water, near the cruise dock. Our room had a balcony, which had two wicker chairs, and a footrest. The beds were comfortable, the mattresses firm but surprisingly soft. The room had a refrigerator, very good free wi-fi, microwave, coffee maker, ceiling fan (nice touch) and safe. The bathroom was large, with a nice sink and a walk-in shower. The restaurant serves only dinner, but we found the food was very good and the prices reasonable. The menu is fixed, offering a variety of dishes from lobster to hamburgers. A continental breakfast is included with the room fee. There is no room service. The staff, housekeepers, waiters, and chef are all very respectful, helpful, and accommodating.

There are a couple of downsides.

1. The TV is impossible to operate without a guide to the stations which was not provided. I had to ask at the front desk, and was given 3 Xeroxed pages.

2. The walls and ceilings are not as soundproof as one wold expect. A family with kids came into the room above us on our second to last night. The kids seemed to be running around from about 7:00 to 10:00 PM and the noise comes right through the ceiling. Also a lot of moving of chairs on the balcony above makes for an annoying experience. Not much can be done.

It is pricey, but a great location . The noise of the disrespectful guests is the only real downer, but it cannot be wished away.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor. Less noise from kids that way.

Thank you for the great review and taking time to point out the things that we need to work on to make your stay perfect. I would like to make you aware that our new guest directory's with television channel guides are going in the rooms this week. I also have created signage for all the rooms with my direct line as well as my cell phone, instructing the guest to call me anytime if there is excessive noise, so I may come and do my best to correct the problem.

I am glad you had a good stay and for your feed back on these items. It is our goal to become the number one service hotel in Bar Harbor and your feed back will help achieve that goal. I hope the next time you are in bar harbor you will call me directly so that I may take care of you personally.

Again thanks for taking time out to write this review,

This was an excellent place to stay in relation to Bar Harbor. Both Acadia and Bar Harbor were very convenient to the location of this hotel. We were so impressed by the apparent new, fresh feeling of the building. Everything was in good shape and very comfortable. The best part was the view out our patio! We stayed on the first floor and could walk right down to the water. Loved sitting outside and looking at the water. All of the hotel staff were really helpful with any questions we had about the area. The complementary breakfast was great and we loved sitting outside chatting with other hotel guests.

We stayed there for two nights. We couldn't ask for better. This was a great experience. Our room was on the top floor as requested. We had a beautiful ocean view. Very nice and clean room. Breakfast was outstanding. Huge variety of pastry, delicious breads and cheeses, pretty good coffee. Snacks, cereals, lots of fruits. We purchased an upgrade and ordered off the menu. We had a lobster omelet special that was with dill cheese. Just amazing. High Quality breakfast.

We stayed for a weekend getaway and were very happy with the hotel and the service. The room was large and modern with a nice balcony with ocean view. A continental breakfast was included in the room price and had a nice selection. If you want more than what is included you can order off the menu for an additional cost. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely book this hotel again and have no problem recommending it to others.

We traveled with my daughter's class on their trip and needed a place to stay but still wanted to experience the coast. Brad assisted with our reservations and made sure there county kids were able to have the most amazing rooms with an amazing view. Amber at the front desk made sure that all of our needs were met. Amazing view, great hospitality, beautiful accommodations...I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Thank you for a great stay~

Room Tip: The new building, second floor = amazing view!
