“A True Grand Hotel”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I booked this hotel for a weekend with friends. The staff was polite and the manager was overly friendly.

My room was spotless! The room was beautiful and the bathroom spotless. My friend's room had an issue with unsanitary washcloths. The manager issued them a gift shop certificate for $20.00 for the "inconvenience."

This hotel is nice and (mostly) clean. The breakfast was better than most continental's and has a clean area. It was a bit out of town and not close to the water. It was not my favorite but it definitely is a nice place to stay and the history is great!

We recently stayed at the Grand as part of a roadtrip across New England. It was the nicest hotel that we stayed in. The rooms were large and well furnished (modern but in a period style), clean and the service throughout was excellent. Good location just 5 minutes walk from the harbour, would definitely return.

Very comfortable, very clean, large bathroom, comfortable bed but needed extra/better pillows. The included breakfast was ok. We understood this was an off-time for the area so possibly more breakfast options when the hotel is full during the busy season.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor near the elevator. You could hear elevator traffic.

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.
