“Can't beat the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

This hotel is a gem. Rooms are nicely decorated, our suite had two rooms and one bath. Large first bedroom with two large queen sized beds, second room medium size with queen size bed, shared bathroom. Immaculate rooms, TV's in both rooms.
Continental breakfast everyday. The hotel also has a heated swimming pool outside. Loved our stay there, would go back again.

Room Tip: No restaurant on the premises.

Green Features: The hotel is non-smoking. They have an area outside the hotel to smoke. They ask that you reuse your towels if necessary.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. Stayed there 3 years ago. Helpful and friendly staff. Nicely furnished and clean rooms. Free Wi-Fi. Continental breakfast is satisfactory but there are several good places within walking distance that serve a good breakfast.

We read many reviews before choosing a hotel in Bar Harbor and finally chose the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. This was an excellent choice. The location was perfect - walking distance to everything in town, free bus shuttles to the Arcadia National Park, very close to many fine restaurants. The hotel was very clean, rooms were large and new, and the service was excellent. The bedding was great. The continental breakfast had everything you could want and the food was constantly restocked. I would highly recommend this hotel.

After vacating the Quality Inn which didn't hold true to its name, we went on a morning quest to find a better place to relocate for our remaining stay in Maine. Norman the manager greeted us warmly and proceeded to book us an excellent room at his hotel for later that day. He even provided us with advanced parking passes so we could move immediately. Breakfasts had plenty of hot and cold healthy choices. Rooms were quiet and clean. Beds were comfortable. the staff made sure that the rollwaway bed was more agreeable to us. Nice touches with rocking chairs on front of property. Easy walk to heart of town and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

We recently spent two nights in Bar Harbour. It was our first visit to this area of Maine. We chose the Grand Hotel for it's close proximity to the harbour as it is within easy walking distance to everything that this lovely town has to offer. The hotel was lovely and the staff was great. Highly recommend the package deal of a two night stay, breakfast, dinner for two and a harbour cruise on the Margaret Todd.

This hotel was absolutely the best. From the location, to the comfy bed and yummy breakfast... I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. The room was very spacious and exceptionally clean. I don't have a single complaint. It was quiet and the staff was so welcoming. The breakfast selection was amazing. Great waffles, french toast, fruit... It is right next to fabulous shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel to couples, families and business travelers alike.

This is truly a beautiful place to stay. Very comfortable and clean and the staff are very kind and helpful. My only complaint would be the complimentary breakfast. They would be better off not offering it at all! Considering the cost of our stay, we thought something more than oatmeal and cold cereal would have been appropriate.

Green Features: Excellent environmentally-friendly practices. They recycle any soap left by visitors and donate to foreign countries. They have recycling cans in every room. They only change the bed everyday if you request it as well as towels.
