Great location, free breakfast with good coffee, free wifi and excellent customer service! We had requested a quiet, corner room on the top floor and that's exactly what we had! When we arrived and were settling in, we heard some construction going on outside; this was late afternoon however wanting a nap before dinner, that would have been out of the question with hammering going on. We called the front desk and Dennis said he had no idea there was any construction but he'd go over and find out. And he walked right over and came back to report that the worker would be stopping soon to go pick up his son. Problem solved. We found out later that Dennis is the hotel manager so we felt we received some extra special attention there.

We would return to this hotel in a heartbeat. One suggestion for any late sleepers; during this time of the year (late June) the sun rises before 5:00am and it came streaming in our windows (there are blinds but no blackout curtains) and was so bright we thought we'd over-slept. On the good side of this, being up so early got us out of the hotel earlier so we drove in to Acadia to find gorgeous morning light for photos plus no one else on the Park Loop Rd but us!

Room Tip: Note to any late sleepers: request a room on the back side of the hotel.

We recently stayed at Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. The hotel is excellent and the room that we stayed in was very spacious (two bed room suite) and most importantly nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast selection (scrambled eggs, cheese omelets, oat meal, cereals etc.) was excellent and overall a very pleasant stay. Will stay here again if we ever visit Bar Harbor. Overall an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Try to stay in two bed room suite.

We came here for a short visit with family from different parts of the world and a lot of small children. The rooms are spacious and clean with nice decor. The location is great too. The staff is friendly and helpful. It was nice to have breakfast included too, especially with the little ones. Definitely staying here when we come back to Bar Harbor!

And we definitely want you to stay with us again and again. I so enjoy little ones staying at my hotel. I often walk around the breakfast room to meet our little ones and so enjoyable to see them enjoying themselves. There is something at breakfast that will satisfy all. Thank you for your comments.

This was our second stay at the Bar harbor Grand and I plan on going back in August. It is always clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.
My favorite thing though is the location. It is right in town without being RIGHT in town and is an easy walk to the stores and restaurants.

Our most common comment on our property and the location is so beneficial. The fact that you can park your car on the property (free) and walk the town is a tremendous asset as parking downtown is very difficult as the season gets busy. We look forward to seeing you again in August.

we loved the hotel and people....would definitely stay again. Within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor yet just far enough away to be quiet and cozy. everyone was very helpful. the getaway package was WELL worth the price.
