Had a very pleasant 2 night stay this summer at the Bar Harbor Grand.
Check in was very quick and smooth. Stayed in a two bedroom unit on the last floor (4th). Accommodation was really great. Spacious, impeccably clean and in very good conditions. Main bedroom had two queen beds and an ample corner with a table and two chairs. Second bedroom had an additional queen bed. Bathroom was spacious too and had coffee maker. Room offered free wi-fi though connection was quite sketchy. Only minor complaint is that windows were not very sound-proofed and you could hear every single car or motorcycle passing at night, but Bar Harbour, though very crowded in summer, is not a metropolis and late at night it gets very quite anyway, so not a major issue for us. Maybe on the first or second floor this could be more of a nuisance.
Breakfast buffet was also quite good and offered very good selection. And it is included in the room price! In addition to the usual items they also have waffles. They are pre-made, you just heat them up and eat them. They were quite delicious I must say. Hotel has an outdoor pool but no restaurant. They have a very useful book with the menus of almost every restaurant in town in the lobby which you can consult before deciding where to dine.
The location is also very good, 2 minutes from the village green from where you can catch the free Acadia shuttle buses and everything is at walking distance : shops, restaurant, visitor info. Parking is also free and there is plenty of space.
To sum it up, it was a very pleasant stay and would definitely choose this hotel again should I visit Acadia again. Also the price for a two-bedroom suite was quite good taking into consideration that Bar Harbor is quite expensive in summer. Definitely good value for money.
