The Bar Harbor Grand is in an excellent location close to shops & restaurants. It was very clean, staff extremely courteous & the free breakfast was great, very nicely laid out. Our room was huge (king bed room) & quite comfortable. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Bar Harbor.

I notice you are a frequent traveler and thus these words mean a lot. There is so much competition in Bar Harbor and when we meet the approval of a frequent traveler as yourselves, we know we are doing well. Thank you for your review and we look forward to your return.
Sincerely,
Dennis W. Clark, Manager

Our room had a ceiling fan! Clean and with a convenient location to downtown. You can leave you vehicle and walk to downtown and the docks. In addition to the 2 queen beds the room had a pullout bed which provided the perfect sleep arrangements for my family with three children. This was quite the step up from the roll-aways we had in other hotels on our trip. Very good breakfast choices. Overall a wonderful stay.

The room that you spoke of is one of our family rooms and are easily twice the size of the average hotel room. Thank you for commenting on how well it worked for your family. Our location is without a doubt a great benefit for our guests. Please bring your family back.

Stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of June. Hotel (room 308) in general and the room we stayed in were very clean. The bathroom had newer fixtures and was professionally done. The hotel is located on the main road where the majority of the Bar Harbor shops and restaurants are located. You can leave your car at the hotel and walk to restaurants within minutes. From the hotel you can walk down to the harbor within 5 minutes. The front porch on the hotel has a bunch of rocking chairs that were nice to use at night. The breakfast was complimentary and was well presented. The dining room area was large so there was no problem getting seats. The front desk personnel were extremely helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 308 which overlooks the main road.

I stayed here the week of June 22nd with my granddaughter. I was very pleased overall with the hotel. We had a room with 2 queen beds, the room was large, there was a table with 2 side chairs and it was spotless. The continental breakfast exceeded my expectations. There were many breakfast choices, eggs, bagels, sausage, bacon, English muffins, fruit and cold cereal. I know I didn't list everything that was offered. The outdoor pool was heated and a good size. Unfortunately during our visit they were putting in a new hot tub so we could not use it. The hotel location is downtown close to everything. Last but not least the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

I will start by saying thank you for staying with us and for your expressions. During the high season, the advantage of being in our location is great. Not having to look for a place to park downtown is a tremendous convenience, plus you can walk to everything from here. I am proud of my staff and how they treat our guest. Please return.

This is a great place to stay in Bar Harbor. I must express my greatest thanks to the kind woman at the front desk, who happened to be an EMT when we needed one! My soc cut his leg doing something dumb and she was there to save the day...and a trip to the ER. Excellent customer service above and beyond!!

The family recently visited Bar Harbor for the first time. We spent 3 nights at the Bar Harbor Grand. The hotel was located nicely and allowed for an easy walk to the water. The room was clean and allowed enough room for the three us to stay comfortably. The outdoor pool was a treat. A small hot tub was being installed. The front desk was friendly and helpful. We would book here again.
