“Excellent hotel and lovely staff”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We arrived at Bar Harbor at 8.40 pm without a booking and very hungry. The two lovely ladies on reception sorted us out really quickly and also recommended a place to eat near by that closed at 9.00 pm but thanks to the efficiency of the Best Western reception staff we made it with time to spare. Outside the Best Western looks quite low key but, as the lady that checked us in said, our room was lovely. It was well furnished and well equipped, and everything was immaculate - we had an extremely comfortable 4 night stay. The breakfast in the morning was also very good and the lady who looked after things was so nice - she helped my husband to cope with the waffle machine - something you don't see in English hotels - and we had lovely waffles for breakfast.

Room Tip: We were at the back of the hotel and heard no noise at all from the road.

Just returned home from a 4-day stay at this Best Western, what a relaxing & fun vacation. Set among the pines, all on one floor, you just want to sit out front on a wooden chair in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee. The hotel room was convenient to our car, just a step away from the front door. Peaceful, super clean each day (the elves must come in to clean, super perfect job !) , comfortable night's rest, and the breakfast included with the room rate was a selection of foods to remember - hot eggs and home fries, biscuits & gravy, diced tropical fruit, variety of cold juices, baked tasty little treats, and waffle-making machines, and enough changes daily to make breakfast an event! The employees are all so joyful & friendly, it's like visiting with family. This inn is just a few minutes from the entrance to the Acadia Nat'l Park, real handy for that 4:00 a.m. run up Cadillac Mtn for sunrise! Just up the road from the Lobster Pond (best fresh lobster without all those expensive add-ons), miniature golf, 2 other restaurants, why go anywhere else? Will return here again, Best Western Acadia Park Inn is THE place to stay.

Room Tip: South Side end unit was perfect for us!

Dear Carol H
Thank you for choosing to spend your four vacation days here with us at the BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn. Our “elves” are tickled pink to be called that and also for the kudos on their cleaning abilities! We thought this year it would be a good idea to change the menu daily so that our guests that are with us longer than two days won’t tire from a repetitious breakfast. To have it called an “event” is super special to us. We look forward to your return stay!! Jane

This hotel is on the main road to Acadia NP and Bar Harbor but it sits back off the road and my stay was quiet and trouble-free. The free breakfast is very good and the choice of food is as good as it gets. The staff is very friendly and had great advice for enjoying the area and Acadia NP. I definitely would stay here again when I visit the Bar Harbor area.

Room Tip: Request a room off the back parking area to get a quiet room that is great for sleeping

It is always gratifying to hear from a former guest that they will definitely be staying with us again. Our breakfast this year is the best we have ever presented and in the largest room possible so we are very happy that you found it to be “as good as it gets.” That is music to our ears!!

We stay at Best Western on many vacations near the National Parks and are never disappointed. The consistency in the quality of the accommodations and the right price make this an easy choice. In Acadia Park Inn we found the staff to be truly interested (not in an overbearing way) in making our stay exceed our expectations, and were very helpful with everything we asked. After seeing so many visitors come and go, their refreshing sincerity was something special.

The location of the hotel is fairly convenient. There's a mini-golf place and lobster pound pretty close by, but we drove to downtown Bar Harbor mostly, which is about 10-15 min away by car. The exterior is pleasant and well-groomed, but nothing to rave about. The interior of our room was excellent! It was very clean (which was the most important to us) and came with nice amenities (iron, ironing board, mini fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, separate toilet/bath from sink, hair dryer, body care items). The beds and blankets were comfortable, better than most standard hotels. Size of the room (2 queen beds) was also quite good; we did not feel cramped for space. The complimentary continental breakfast was among the best we've ever had -- good selection of hot and cold items and nice presentation. The dining area was relaxing and comfortable. The staff was friendly, eager to help, and just pleasant to talk to (especially breakfast hostess Carole Jean!). There was complimentary coffee, cookie and popcorn in the lobby also. All in all, this was an excellent hotel for the value, although not fancy or luxurious, but they really went out of the way to make you comfortable and happy during your stay. We loved our time here and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. I hope if you're considering a stay in the Mount Desert Island or Bar Harbor area that you consider this place -- you won't regret it!
