Very large rooms and helpful staff. Easy walk to anywhere in town which is great since finding parking places is difficult during the day. Have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed.

Loved the hotel's location in relation to the town, Acadia, and island. Staff was superb! Kids LOVED the pool, they were in it every day. I hope the hot tub is installed for the parents when we come back. Room was great, we have 4 kids and loved the 2 bedroom. There was plenty of room for all of us.

This is our third consecutive year at the Grand. After extensive searches, we always come back for the following reasons: 1. The manager (Dennis) lives on-site, is personable and has high standards for customer service and cleanliness. 2. A very good complimentary continental breakfast with many choices for everyone. This saves money over other hotels that charge as much or more without offering some sort of breakfast. 3. AARP discount. 4. Quiet rooms with quiet air-conditioning. 5. Location - very convenient on the upper end of the main street. Everything is with-in walking distance lessening the use of our car and parking. 6. Rooms are well appointed, clean, with a comfortable bed. 7. Staff is pleasant and speaks to you. All told, we believe this is a very good value for the money. If you have never been, we'd strongly recommend that you give this hotel a try.

Room Tip: We have not been in a bad room. Specify your requirements and I am sure the staff will happily comp...

We had a 2 bedroom with a shared bath and it was very nice. The price was good, the location was wonderful and it was clean and very comfortable. The pool hours need to be extended. It should open earlier and close later. But the continental breakfast was sub-par. I have stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn and the continental breakfast there is far better. Also I stay at Hampton Inns quite frequently and even their continental breakfast is better.

Very convenient location on Main Street in Bar Harbor, very clean rooms but they are in dire need of an update and they are only 10 years old. Staff was generally friendly but certainly didn't knock our socks off. The outside of this hotel is quite 'grand', inside tells the story. I paid $200/night, don't think it was quite worth that just ahead of busy season (July 4th).

After thoroughly enjoying a stay a the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel last August, I stayed with my wife and two kids again for a full week from June 14, 2014 to June 22, 2014. Having stayed at many other hotels/motels in the area, I can easily say this is the best by far. The location is absolutely perfect, in Bar Harbor itself, but far enough away from the busiest section of town to ensure a peaceful and quite stay. Yet only a few blocks walk and you have a multitude of restaurants and activities to choose from. Hop in your car and head the other direction and you are minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park. Another plus is the excellent included continental breakfast (improved this year with a hot egg and meat choice each morning). This gets each day off to an excellent start. In addition, the hotel is beyond clean, and the rooms and bathrooms are very large. Finally, being able to leave your car in the parking lot instead of looking for a spot each time you come into town is a Godsend. Overall, this is an outstanding hotel and I will definitely be staying here every time I visit Bar Harbor in the future.
