Reviewed 12 October 2013

We stayed at the Acadia Hotel October 8th-10th. This was a perfect time to visit Bar Harbor. The leaves were beautiful.
The hotel couldn't have been in a better location to the all the sites. In a short walk you can be anywhere in Bar Harbor.
We stayed in the lower level room, it has slightly lower ceilings which wasn't a problem since my boyfriend and I aren't tall, but this could be a problem for tall people.
The staff was very friendly.
Overall, our stay was very nice.

Location couldn't be better. You can leave your car parked at the hotel and walk to the shops and restaurants. The room was very comfortable and clean. We were fortunate to get a free room upgrade too. Having free wifi and a refrigerator was a nice convenience. The website photos accurately show the hotel and rooms. The price of the rooms is a good value. Bar Harbor is a wonderful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Acadia Hotel.

Acadia Hotel is a very warm and inviting hotel. The room was very comfortable, clean and pleasant. We loved the small balcony right outside the room. A nice place to sit and relax after a long day. The location is excellent - walking distance to everything in the Bar Harbor downtown area. The cost of the room was an average price for the location and well worth every penny. If we ever travel to this area again, Acadia Hotel will be our choice.

Very nice hotel that is cozy, charming, and in a great location. In the heart if downtown bar harbor within walking distance from restaurants and shops. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Staff are helpful and friendly and made great local recommendations. Price is a little high but overall worth it!

Stayed on 2nd leg of our road trip, after a long drive it was good to arrive and experience a smooth, well organised and efficient check in ... Location of the hotel is great for bar harbor, close to everything and east to leave the car on the car park and walk to all food and drink establishments ... A good solid performance in a great location

I booked the Acadia because of great reviews for the hotel and went top-of-the line with the Cadillac Mountain Suite to end our week-long trip to Maine in style. There isn't much here that warrants the designation as a "suite". It's certainly big - two large rooms both with sleeping lofts - but it really is for large families. The bedroom has a nice king-size bed - and right next to it (blocking the view to the balcony) is an old treadmill !??! While the main hotel is 1800's décor, this is 1950's mountain cabin with wood paneling, wood ceilings and a musty smell. The bathroom had a nice Jacuzzi tub (broken hot water faucet) and the amenities were less than you get at a Hampton Inn - 2 people, 2 nights, one tiny shampoo and a soap sliver (quarter-size soap). Overall, it just doesn't live up to the term "suite" (and it's not cheap, either). So book it if you need a lot of room - otherwise find something else for décor and amenities.
