Best Western Acadia Park Inn
Ranked #8 of 42 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, before the peak season at Acadia National Park, as a base for several days of hiking. The room was clean and adequate for the purpose. The most impressive aspect was the breakfast, one of the best we've had in a hotel at this (reasonable) price range. They have a separate building which houses what is essentially a small cafeteria with a selection of hot foods (eggs, sausages, etc), fresh fruits, the usual cereals and waffle machine. Highly recommend this place if you aren't looking to stay right in town. You need to drive to get to restaurants. (This is several miles from the town of Bar Harbor and the park.)

Room Tip: All rooms are on the ground floor.

Thank you for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we hope your hiking was very satisfying. We are four and a half miles from downtown Bar Harbor but we do have several restaurants within two miles, one just next door and two others just two tenths of a mile away. (I am sorry that we did not point them out to you.) We are so excited to offer our guests the new continental breakfast building with amped up breakfast. Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you will come back soon. Best wishes, Jane

Lots of places to charge devices at the bedside. Lots of pillows and a comfortable bed. Tons of toiletries and lovely soap. They were even serving popcorn when we arrived. Breakfast was great and everyone was very friendly. We added a pin to their visitor's map in the breakfast area.

Best Western Arcadia is a quiet, clean, well maintained hotel with excellent service, a few miles away from the bustle of Bar Harbor and near the Park entrance. Comfortable outdoor seating near the swimming pool and also a deck a bit removed from it. Breakfast area is new, spacious and provides a good meal. We have been here many times and it is always our go to place when we visit Mt. Desert.

Thank you for the awesome review and recommendation! I am so happy that you were pleasantly surprised with how clean and comfortable our rooms are. We do offer outside entry and parking to all of our rooms. I guess the "old-fashioned" way is not so bad. No toting luggage inside and down a hallway or crowding into an elevator. Our staff is awesome and thank you for complimenting them! Please stay with us again. Regards, Jane

Upon arrival we were surprised. Didn't look like any Best Western we had ever stayed at (single story, outside entrance to room). but we were pleasantly surprised upon check-in. The friendliest staff I've ever encountered. Very helpful with directions, restaurants, etc. The room was the same quality of any Best Western with very comfortable beds & pillows, very clean. Very close to Acadia National Park. Our stay was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend staying here.

The staff takes great pride in this hotel, which is evident from the moment you arrive through the breakfast experience to the departure. Nothing is too much trouble. The accommodations are well maintained, the new breakfast building is an excellent addition, and it's all good value. We will definitely be back!

The Best Western Acadia offers a very pleasant lodging experience. Upon check in, the clerk was very helpful in providing information about the resort, including where the breakfast facility was located. Although we did not avail ourselves of the pool, the area was located in a very sunny area and the pool was very clean. The employee in the breakfast room was very pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable about the area and what was happening in the town at any given time.

Great room, service and breakfast for very good price. Good access to Acadia but not in walking distance to center of Bar Harbor. The service was exceptional. The room and and the bathroom were large and in great condition.

How nice to hear that you found the staff to provide “exceptional” service. That is our goal! Our rooms are always being improved and it is good to know that it is really noticed. We are about four and a half miles from downtown Bar Harbor but it is an enjoyable drive with awesome scenery. Although some brave souls have walked it, I would not recommend it. We hope you are able to come back soon and spend more time with us. Best wishes, Jane
