“Nice place”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We stayed here the third week of September. The weather was perfect. The Atlantic Oceanside Hotel is very convenient to the center of Bar Harbor. The room was very nice, clean, and spacious. Our anniversary was mid week and when we returned to our room the maid had left 2 towels shaped into 2 swans with fresh flowers on the bed. Very nice touch. My only complaint would be that our balcony had broken slats. They were rotted and the banister was loose. Not very safe. The safe in the room was unusable because there were no instructions on how to use it. The breakfast was very good. I think they are a little overpriced but I would recommend them to stay.

Many years ago we stayed at Atlantic Oceanside(then,Atlantic Oaks)We were very surprised at all the renovations and new name. We did not realize the new building was even part of Atlantic Oceanside.We would have preferred staying in the new rooms! Our room was okay but rather "worn". Next time I will request the new building. We wish over the phone we were offered newer rooms since they seemed available.

Beautiful view. Short drive to town. Breakfast buffet is expansive, but hot items (eggs, pancakes, meats) cost extra. Has a gluten free station at breakfast buffet. Great indoor pool for families & kids. Some areas (eg. stairways and hallways) are a bit worn.

Very pleasant, elegant, low-key stay based in the mansion (our family was there for a wedding). We were in the 3rd floor suite and enjoyed the view as well as the space. Having elegant living rooms on the 1st floor to use, as well as our lounge area, was absolutely wonderful.

It has an indoor pool and hot tub. Also, it has the best complimentary breakfast of any hotel we have stayed. The room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable.

Friday evening entertainment was pleasant.

Room Tip: We had a great room on the first floor by the elevator that was very convenient to the spa.

Had an enjoyable stay. Our room was in the building closest to the water so the view was wonderful, however, I would choose the new building a little further back. The rooms in our building were tired and the porch in poor condition. The air conditioner made loud noises. Thankfully, we didn't need it much. Ate at the restaurant one night and it was wonderful...highly recommend.

Room Tip: Choose the newest building - great rooms.

This hotel used to be Atlantic Oaks and we used to stay there every year when we went to Bar Harbor with our dog(s). They had a wing that allowed dogs. Then they stopped being dog friendly. Now it changed to Atlantic Oceanside and once again has a dog friendly wing, which is right by the ocean and offers a great view. The rooms have been renovated and have tiled floors. The room is clean and of a good size. The staff is friendly. When our tub had some problem with water draining, they came immediately and fixed the problem. Breakfast is complimentary with a good spread of items and choices. You can also order on your own. The hotel is on Rt 3, about 1+ mile walk from Bar Harbor town. We love this hotel. Note that it is not a 4 or 5-star hotel like the Marriott. The beds are comfortable but not luxurious. The towels are OK, a little stiff but by no means worn out. I wish they would have duvet covered bedding - they have the normal blanket wrapped with a sheet. I would have given them 5 stars if the bedding is more to my liking.
