“One of the best BW inns”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We spent a night in BW Acadia and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
It might look expensive, but that's the price level in Acadia, so you get what you pay for.
The room was great and clean and the bed was comfortable.
Breakfast was good too with standard BW choices - omelet, sausage, waffles ...
They also have heated pool, but we didn't have time to check it out.

Thank you very much for the great recommendation. Bar Harbor is a seasonal area and we all l do have higher rates at peak season. Early spring and fall offer some very good rates everywhere. I am happy that you found our lodging to be clean and comfortable and the breakfast good as well. Perhaps you will have a chance to enjoy our heated outdoor pool on your next visit to Bar Harbor. Please stay with us again. Warm Regards, Jane

A Very Excellent Experience. This is a nice hotel, easy to find, and close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor without being in the traffic of it. The room was clean, fresh and solid, the service excellent , and all at a good value. The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate and dining poolside with the morning paper was nice bonus.

It does feel more like a vacation when you can enjoy your breakfast and paper pool side, doesn't it? It is pleasant listening to the birds chirping or even observing an occasional deer strolling by. I am happy that you consider your stay to have been an “Excellent Experience and a good value”. We try very hard to make everyone’s stay an enjoyable one by providing them with clean, comfortable rooms, information about the area, and a great breakfast with a smile. Best wishes, Jane

My family and I had a great experience at the Best Western Acadia. The staff is phenomenal, the rooms are very clean, breakfast is very nice, and the location is good, though not walking distance from Bar Harbor. For an affordable option, this is absolutely the way to go!

Thank you very much for this awesome review of the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn. It is so nice to hear that you and your family appreciated our staff so much that you call them “phenomenal”. That is priceless to us! Our rooms are clean and we are in tune with the rates of others in this area that offer the same amenities as we do. We are located 5 miles from downtown Bar Harbor and 2 miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park. We are a little out of the busy downtown area but in a clean, quiet and serene setting among the lovely Maine trees. We so appreciate your sharing with others how much you enjoyed your stay with us! Best wishes, Jane

My family and I recently returned from our first trip to Maine and the Acadia National Park area. We wanted a safe, clean, and family-budget-friendly place to stay that was also near Bar Harbor and Acadia - Best Western Acadia fit all our needs. The rooms were comfortable and as promised, the grounds were well-kept, the staff was professional and helpful, and the proximity to all the major points of interest (without being too close to the noise) was wonderful! The (included) breakfast was just right and we really appreciated the fresh-baked cookies each afternoon! Would stay here again if back in the area!

Thank you very much for the superb review! We are very happy that you found us to be all that you were expecting us to be and that you enjoyed your very first visit to Maine and Acadia National Park. Our awesome free breakfast does fill the bill for a nourishing and satisfying start to any day, especially one filled with hiking and sightseeing. Fresh baked cookies to finish the day just seem to be the” right thing to do.” We hope your next visit to Maine will include us, too. Regards, Jane

This Best Western is a fairly large one level facility a few miles from Bar Harbor. We would consider it average based on having stayed at numerous BWs. We stayed here a week and simply used it as a base to go out and about. Room service declined after a day or so, clogged sink was fixed on request, shower drain ran slow and water accumulated during shower. Food service was a challenge because the dining area is too small for the number of people served. Quality was okay but bland. If you plan to stay more than a couple of days, we'd recommend B&Bs or vacation rental with more atmosphere.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are spread out into five separate buildings, all with its own decor. Each has been updated over the past three years or is slated for additional updates this winter. We are always making improvements such as adding a refrigerator, microwave, and a safe in each room. We have so many glowing reviews regarding our breakfasts that it is surprising to us that you found the food bland. (We offer many types of condiments too, so that each can spice things up to their personal tastes.) While breakfast can get very crowded at times, we have more seats than what is required by Best Western. However, due to its popularity we do have plans to enlarge it over the winter months. I have addressed the housekeeping issue with our executive housekeeper to see why you did not get top-notch service. I do apologize for the inconveniences that you experienced. We believe every stay-over deserves to be treated as well as any incoming guest. We have an average stay of three nights per guest according to Trip Advisor however; many stay up to two weeks at a time. I hope you will give us another chance to give you the superior customer service that you deserve. Sincerely, Jane

We chose this motel for its reasonable rates and its location just outside of town close to the entrance to Acadia National Park. The free breakfasts were great and our room in this older motel was freshly decorated,clean, and very pleasant. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you like a quiet room,ask for one away from the outdoor pool.

Nice clean motel, good amenities. Situated close to Acadia national park. Poor flexibility, can be noisy at night. Breakfast quality ok but served in paper and plastic dishes, could be more ecologically minded.

Thank you for stating that our BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn is a nice clean motel with good amenities. We are within two miles of the Hull’s Cove entrance to Acadia National Park and Visitor’s Center. I am not sure what you mean by poor flexibility. We try very hard to be flexible with all guests if at all possible by doing room moves, checking in or out before or beyond the set times. Many times we are a full house and unable to do any of those things but when we can, we do. Most motels do have a guest or two on occasion that makes noise .When we are made aware, we ask them to quiet down as in this case. I am sorry for that disruption. Concerning the breakfast ware, we have stopped using any Styrofoam in any form as a brand decision. We are not a fully equipped kitchen; hence the plastic forks and spoons. Our cups are bio-degradable. We do recycle whenever possible. Thank you for your review and for choosing to make us your choice for vacation lodging. Jane
