“An exceptional experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

This hotel was conveniently located to Acadia National Park. The staff was courteous and helpful. The complimentary breakfast included a plethora of choices both hot & cold and homemade. The room was clean including a sanitized TV remote control! Bed pillows were plentiful. Water pressure in the shower was excellent. I highly recommend this hotel.

This quiet Best Western looks like a 50s motor court when you drive up, but appearances are deceiving. The rooms and bathrooms are completely remodeled to high standards. Our room included a fridge, a microwave, and a safe. The bed was very comfortable, the shower had great pressure, and the facility, maybe five miles outside of Bar Harbor, was quiet. We were about two miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park which was convenient for the purpose of our trip, yet we also found it an easy distance to the excellent restaurants in Bar Harbor. A full breakfast in a well maintained dining room is included with the cost of the room, which is quite reasonable for Bar Harbor. All in all, a perfect place to stay while exploring this wonderful national park.

Dear Joanne M
How nice of you to say that we are in a great location ,"Just far enough away but close enough to" is how we also feel about our serene setting here nestled among the floral and fauna and the Maine woods. We have remodeled all of our rooms to a great extent with more in the plans for this winters renovations . Thank you for such nice compliments. I do hope you are able to return next season again and spend some time with us. Regards, Jane

This is nice place to stay in Acadia Park. It is very clean and well run. The breakfast was good with a generous selection. The lobby puts out snacks in the evening and always has coffee, tea or hot chocolate. This Inn is not on the water front in Bar Harbor so those that are looking for a water front view they will have to go further in and pay about twice as much per night. This Inn is close enough to be anywhere you want to go in Bar Harbor without having to drive far. The front desk staff is of some of the most accommodating staff we have had to pleasure to deal with. The breakfast room can get very crowded so I would recommend arriving early to find a place to sit. We would use this Inn again if we were to return to Acadia.

Thank you for the charming review! Our new breakfast building seat up to 71 people so you can see how popular it is when we have a full house. (The former seated 42.) I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and certainly welcome you back as soon as you are able to make a return visit to Bar Harbor. Regards, Jane

The staff is simply the nicest. It's a wonderful location near the entrance to Acadia Park. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fine with a large selection. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This is a perfectly acceptable place but a bit expensive for what it is (although everything is on Mt Desert Island). The location is good, the place is quiet, the room were clean and the staff was helpful.

Thank you for your review. August is peak season in Bar Harbor so rates are somewhat higher than the pre-season in May and June and then again in September and late October, perhaps you will come again to visit us during that time? We are happy to hear that you feel our location is good and that our rooms are clean and staff helpful. Thank you for staying with us. Best wishes, Jane

We picked this hotel off of TripAdvisor and the reviews we read were right on. This hotel sits quietly away from the town of Bar Harbor but not too far. The room was neat and clean and the beds were nice too. The breakfast offered a wide variety of food selections along with seating. The staff was friendly and always willing to help with whatever questions we had. They also had available a variety of cookies and Whoopie Pie Wednesday which our son loved . We stayed in Bar Harbor for our honeymoon and decided to come back to celebrate 25 years of marriage. I am so glad we picked Best Western.

The Best Western appealed to us as soon as we drove into the parking lot. It is very convenient to Acadia National Park but far away from the "touristy" spots. Easy to come and go at any time. We left one morning at 4:45 to see the sunrise! Breakfast was wonderful. I also loved the blueberry coffee and homemade cookies in the lobby at all times of the day.

Dear Dorothy C
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. I think you two are among a "handful" who actually do get up extra early to go to the summit of Cadillac Mountain to see the sunrise! Many think they will but end up sleeping in instead.(smile) I am so happy you enjoyed the fresh baked cookies and variety of coffees in the lobby. I do hope you will pay us a return visit! Best wishes, Jane
