Great in-town location, minutes away from all of Bar Harbor restaurants, shopping etc, extremely friendly and helpful staff, couldn't have been nicer. Room was very nice at the price. Loved having the breakfast available every morning and coffee or tea all day/night long. Didn't use the pool but saw several families with little ones cooling off every day.

Would definitely return.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough as everything was above average. From making a phone reservation and checking in, to just walking through the doors after a day of sight-seeing, the front desk service was helpful and courteous. The room was immaculate, which is usually the first thing I check for and the only thing I am really a stickler about. The rooms were also spacious and comfortable and provided the usual ammenites - a bonus was the New England Coffee Company packets included each morning. I also liked the soap/lotion dispenser by the sink and the shampoo/body wash dispenser in the shower. A nice continental breakfast was included and offered in a large, comfortable dining room.

The location was also a huge bonus, as the Bar Harbor streets were busy and parking was difficult to find, so it was a relief to be able to park at the hotel and walk everywhere in town. I will absolutely look to stay here first when we go back to Bar Harbor!

Our visit to Bar Harbor was a wonderful vacation. We started our vacation going four-wheeling close to Moosehead lake. A wonderful experience. Then we arrived in Bar Harbor for a several night stay. The Grand Hotel was a wonderful place to stay. We had a two bedroom suite which was very pretty and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We walked everywhere from the hotel. And just a block or so away was the oceanrfront walking path. After dinner, we would walk back to the hotel and enjoy the evening sitting in the rockers on the front porch.

I had the job of booking a hotel for my daughters wedding. We were a rather large family, needing over 8 rooms, several with special needs, arriving and departing on different day. Registering this many rooms was a breeze and we had no problems upon arrival. We were all very pleased with our rooms and the easy accesibility to town.
Having the breakfast bar was truly helpful and the large room was great for a gathering place in the evenings to play cards, make plans for the next day, etc. We even brought the wedding cake there and had cake and champagne. The staff was extremely helpful in letting us use the refrigerator. Stepping outside the front door and you strolled down main street. We checked out the other hotels while we were here and all voted we stayed at the very best location! Great dining on all sides, shopping, free parking and an easy walk to the shore. Staff was terrific when asking for advice on sight seeing suggestions, extra towels, and several "special requests" we made. Big thanks to all.

Stayed for two nights as part of a tour package. The room was spacious, clean and very nicely furnished. The en-suite bathroom was also quite large. I did note a strong smell of disinfectant when I first entered the room, which later dissipated leaving a very feint residual foul odour. However, this wasn’t at all noticeable the next day.

The hotel is well located only a few minutes’ walk from the main part of Bar Harbor, and there are plenty of nearby dining choices. It’s only a few minutes’ walk also to the coastal footpath.

The hotel provides a complimentary self-service “continental” breakfast which included various fruit, cereal, bread, muffins and so on, and a conveyor-toaster with bread and a selection of French Toast, Waffles and accompanying syrup. The breakfast area is nicely furnished and provides plenty of seating. Disposable crockery and cutlery are used. Guests can also use the beverage station here to make beverages at any time of the day or night. The hotel does not offer a dining room or dinner service.

This was my first trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia. Hotel was comfortable, and the room was a good size. Loved the mini-fridge in the room and the high-speed internet. The included self-service breakfast had a good variety of food. We stayed two nights, and while the same choices were available both days, it was easy to find something different for each breakfast. There was only one elevator for two wings, and it was very slow. The hotel was within walking distance to the town and the waterfront. Staff was very helpful in suggesting places for dinner that proved to be delicious.
