Reviewed 27 May 2014

The hotel is well located and you can walk to many shops and restaurants. Our room was large, clean and very attractively furnished. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size although the bathtub was very narrow. Buffet breakfast is included in the rate. Dennis, the manager, was very friendly and went out of his way to be helpful - advising us about tours, restaurants, etc. The staff at the front desk was also friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay at this hotel again on our next visit.

We stayed overnight and were very pleased with the throw back feel of the Grand hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast area has a nice flow to it with plenty of seating. The Grand is a great place to stay if you want to be close enough to walk to all the shops and restaurants. We will be back!

We stayed one night in May this year and I wanted to share what a great hotel this is. The room was large, very clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were great and helpful. Excellent breakfast in a bright and well laid out breakfast room. All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel. It is at the quiet end of the street and an easy walk to all the main areas of interest. Lots of good restaurants and shops are close by.

Room Tip: We asked for a room at the back which faces the pool and parking lot as opposed to the street.

We were very pleased with the great value. Facility & rooms were cleaner than norm. The location is ideal - short walk into shopping area and close to the National Park. Very friendly and helpful staff. Loved the fact that smoking on the grounds is limited to a small "hut" in the parking lot. This will be our first choice next time we visit the area.

Once again it was "coming home." We stay at the Grand twice a year and love it. The staff is very caring and helpful ... and respond to all our needs. The rooms are large and spotless and the location is perfect... we walked to dinner each night. The addition to the breakast was a nice surprise.. We will be home again in the Fall !!!

We recognize that the title of this review seems contradictory, but that is beacuse when we booked our stay, we thought it was an old hotel that was located in downtown Bar Harbor. When we arrived, we were really impressed with how they fixed the hotel up with all new windows, doors, molding, etc. Until we went to dinner the first night, we were convinced that it was a remodeled old hotel, but some locals told us that the hotel was actually designed to mimic the "Rodick House Hotel" a famous Bar Harbor Hotel from the late 1800's. Apparently, the original Rodick House had 400 rooms and seating for 1000 people in the dining room. After dinner, when we went back to the hotel, upon closer examination, sure enough, it is a modern hotel (about 10 years old) that is built to look like it's predecessor. The hallways are wide, the ceilings are high and the rooms have windows that actually side up and down! We had a corner room that was HUGE, it had 7 windows in it. The front desk staff were always very helpful and courteous. It is located within easy walking distance of the main activities in Bar Harbor. We walked to dinner every night. It is about a 10 minute drive to Acadia National Park. Breakfast room was huge and comfortable with more or less standard breakfast fare, that is perhpas a step up from a Hampton Inn. The only dissappointment was a very limited choice of teabags at the breakfast area. We would absolutely stay there again if we return to Bar Harbor. A very good choice!

Room Tip: Our room was a corner room, number 421. If you can get a corner room, ask for it!

I'm sure you enjoyed your research on the history of the Rodick House and were obviously pleased to learn that the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel is a new modern hotel. We are so pleased you enjoyed you stay with us. Our location is repeatedly mentioned and very beneficial. Please come back.

We were spending Easter week in Ogunquit and decided to go up to Bar Harbor for a couple of nights just to break up our trip. We chose this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disapointed. Not only are the rooms spacious and beautifully decorated, the bathroom was comfortable and clean as a whistle. The front desk couldn't be nicer and the breakfast was quite good for a hotel lobby meal. I would have to say the the Town of Bar Harbor wasn't quite "awake" at this time of year although several really good restaurants were open and serving. Loved the fact that this hotel is a short walk to everything in town and parking is ample.
