Best Western Acadia Park Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We made a good choice when we decided to book rooms here. It's a few miles away from the craziness of downtown Bar Harbor which is really nice. There is a pool and a separate building for breakfast. The breakfast was more than adequate with omelets, hard boiled eggs, sausage, breads (really, really good rye bread!), bagels, muffins, waffles, juices, fruit salad, whole fresh fruit, cereal - the list just seemed endless. The staff was very nice and gave us a couple good suggestions for dinner. The room was good size. The bathroom had a folding door to separate the sink and then a more private room for the tub and toilet. That was nice for two people getting ready at the same time. There were free USA Today papers. They also have laundry facilities on site. It was a little strange to see them sitting outside but it was a warm evening when we were there so it wasn't a problem. They seemed to have thought of everything to make a travelers stay more enjoyable. We recommend this to anyone staying in the area who wants a clean room away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor.

I expected a pretty basic experience at this hotel but my expectations were pleasantly exceeded! The location is very convenient to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor, while avoiding the crowds and traffic in town. The staff was outstanding, helpful and friendly, and the rooms, facilities and grounds were spotless! The breakfast WAY better than average - I was concerned about this because you really need a great breakfast if you are going to hike, bike, kayak all day. Lots of choices, hot and cold, fresh fruit, everything you needed to start your day. The place is very family friendly and our room was spacious enough for all our outdoor gear. I loved the picnic tables outside so I could get my coffee and check my email while the family slept in! We will definately choose the Best Western Acadia for our return trip!

Room Tip: Back wing rooms are really quiet with a little more privacy than the front - ask for one of these if...

It is always awesome to hear that we have exceeded people’s expectations! Thank you for the compliments concerning breakfast, too. We offer many items, trying to offer as many choices as there are differences in people’s tastes. It sounds as though you really took advantage of all the Acadia National Park has to offer and had a delightful time. We appreciate that you chose BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn as your lodging choice with so many to choose from. Please come see us again. Warmest regards, Jane

Great location if you plan is to spend the day in Acadia National Park, not a bad location if you want to spend the day in Bar Harbor. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, and the rooms were nice, clean, and had all the accomodations you would need for a comfortable stay (fridge, microwave, etc.).

Thank you for your review and for stating what a good value we are. We are very close to the entrance to Acadia National Park and the short ride downtown to Bar Harbor is picturesque. We hope you will return for another visit. Regards, Jane

Beautiful location, outstanding appearance of the facility. Everything looks new and the staff are very nice. The location is a few miles from Bar Harbor, but is a nice alternative to downtown. Preferable to being squeezed into Bar Harbor's pricier locations. Absolutely nothing to complain about, and would definitely return on a future visit.

Clean, quiet, well kept, good sized rooms. Comfortable beds. The toilet/shower is in a closed door room,and the sink is outside in an alcove. This is especially helpful for a family of four sharing one bathroom. It speeds up toothbrushing and cleaning up. The breakfast was good mix of hot/cold items. The real gem is Carole, the breakfast lady. She is friendly and informative. Tell her what your plans are and she'll give local, knowing advice. She pulled out Acadia travel reference books and maps to share with us. When I mentioned a hike to Bar Island, she pointed out a picture decorating the wall in the dining room and pointed out the hidden trails that only a skilled eye could see. The hotel is about 5 to 10 minutes away from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center at Acadia National Park. It is a one floor motel where you park your car in front of the door. The pool was heated and we swam in it one afternoon. It is about 15 yards long. Cookies are available at 3pm and popcorn is available at 7pm. Coffee/tea is 24 hours in the office-regular,decafe,blueberry,vanilla, and hazelnut.. We'd return in a heartbeat!

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
