“Summer Overnight”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Very nice hotel. Nice location and very clean. Wait staff was courteous. Breakfast was basic but good and they didn't run out of anything. Would stay again. I don't know what else I can say to get to 200 characters but you should stay here.

My wife and I were very well cared for during our two night stay. The location was not with a view of the ocean but it was only a two minute walk to shopping eating and that great ocean park. The staff was always courteous and helpful with all our "tourist" questions. Will be back soon.

We always strive to meet our guests needs and very happy we accomplished this for you. The location is awesome, especially in the summer when it is very difficult to find a parking spot downtown. You can walk to everything as mentioned. We look forward to your return.

Very good alternative to Bar Harbor Inn. Well located in town. Close to restaurants. 5 minutes from Acadia NP. We walked everywhere. Staff is very helpful. Great breakfast. Rooms are well appointed. Very clean. We'll come back.

Room Tip: Avoid the ice machine

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel the third week in July which is busy in Bar Harbor. We arrived mid day to find our room already prepared for us. Parking is a major issue in Bar Harbor during the summer and it was nice to have this included in our room. The hotel is clean, staff are friendly and outgoing. The free breakfast is adequate but limited to the normal heat and serve stuff but that is not why we booked into this hotel so it is not a deal breaker. It was a good, clean,affordable, friendly place to stay and solved the problem with more than we expected. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: We were just off the lobby and had no problems with noise except for the kids next door and that was...

Green Features: Hotel had the normal practice of reserving linen. Only spent one night so I do not know if they ignored their own policy.

Just spent 7 days at this hotel for our July vacation . The service is wonderful, rooms are clean and large. Staff couldn't be nicer and the location is perfect to escape the crowds. Pool is heated and they just installed a new hottub. Family friendly. We have been staying here since it opened and wouldn't go anywhere else. Can't wait to book next years trip!

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor. Had searched on trip advisor for the right hotel. This was the perfect pick. The hotel is within walking distance to all the shops. We only stayed one night but we were very impressed with the room and the hotel itself. When checking in, the girl at the desk was very polite and very helpful. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. They offer a free breakfast which works very well when traveling. When we return, we will be booking this hotel again. We had burgers at the Beerworks restaurant which were cooked to perfection and tasted great. We ate at the bar and Lon was our bartender. He gave excellent service and drink suggestions. He is an asset to Beerworks. Hope you find this helpful.

This is my first review on TripAdvisor, and this hotel definitely deserves an excellent review. This was our first visit to Bar Harbor and the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel, and it was delightful! Each interaction with the staff was pleasant and informative. We booked a 3-night package, which turned out to be an excellent value. Our family of two adults and two teenagers found the room to be spacious, quiet, relaxing, and, most importantly to me, very clean. The housekeeping staff does an excellent job! There was a good amount of closet space and also ample room on the vanity in the bathroom for everyone's toiletries. The common areas in the hotel were all very clean and relaxing, and the complimentary continental breakfast provided choices for everyone in our family. The hotel is located on the main street and offers free parking (definitely a plus!) and an outdoor pool and hot tub. It has an excellent location just outside the noisiest part of town with a leisurely stroll to the shops, restaurants, and harbor. We also found easy access to the beautiful shore path. Acadia National Park is only a short drive away. Our family highly recommends this hotel. We hope to return again next summer.
