We had a great stay for 2 nights at the bar harbor grand hotel. Comfy and spacious room, clean, nice people at the reception, free newspaper. Breakfast was included: fruit, bagels, toast, yoghurt,.... Hotel is situated at main street, great location for a visit to Acadia National Park, 15min drive to the Visitor center and the park loop road. We would definitely go back!

The hotel was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and it was convenient to have a mini fridge. The bathroom was large and we had plenty of towels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and lots of spaces to sit and eat. Although the off season, I didn't see anyone else on our floor. Great hotel for the price and it was a nice place to stay on our honeymoon road trip.

For the past several years, we've made an annual trip to this hotel for fall foliage. It's one of our favorites. The service is excellent and very friendly. Rooms are always clean. It's hard to ask for more.

On 3/8/13, I spoke to Dennis, the manager to reserve a two bedroom unit for my family of 5. I was quoted $315.00/night. Imagine our surprise and disappointment in late August when we arrived after a 6 hr ride to find our room had been given to another tourist. We thought we had guaranteed the room, but we were told that we were mistaken, that in fact, we had only reserved the room. The difference being, that they could let the room go. While we find this a questionable business practice, we trusted they were right.

There were no other vacancies in Bar Harbor. So, we had no option but to accept their offer of a second room at $195.00/night.

Now, months later, I am making reservations on Cape Cod for August, 2014 and was told that by the cape Cod hotel that by paying the one night deposit, I was GUARANTEEING my chosen accommodations. In fact, she was shocked when I told her of our experience in Maine.

So, in fact by paying the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel the deposit of $315.00, I WAS guaranteeing the room. Hence, I should not have been charged an additional $625.95 for three nights lodging in a second room and a better accommodation should have been made.

We were lied to. Plain and simple. Buyer beware.

Quiet, clean, nice hotel. It is located in the center of town. We walked to the beach and through the quaint town. Walked to restaurant for a nice lobster dinner. A standard continental breakfast was prepared. Dining area was clean.
