“Solid Value - No Frills”
Reviewed 22 July 2010

In a market where room prices run high (in my opinon), The Acadia Inn delivered everything we expected. Our comments: A clean large room with comfortable bed; quiet (but could hear people moving about in the room above us); clean large bathroom; refrigerator (but no freezer section); wide screen TV (but not HD); good air conditioning unit, plenty of parking, decent outdoor pool and spa (spa out of order during our visit), close to National Park entrance, free shuttle bus to town, fine (free) continental breakfast. Not a destination resort, but a reliable, clean hotel that we could recommend to family and freinds.

We were please with ou stay at the Acadia Inn. The rooms were clean and spacious, staff very very helpful. This hotel offered a comfortable stay without any frills, but yet you aren't paying for those frills either. Location is a little pursue of downtown but we never encountered a parking problem. Would stay here in the future!

The whole hotel needs updating and looks a little tired. I booked for 3 nights based on the trip advisor reviews, and was sadly disappointed. The room was spacious, but the decor was outdated. Our bedspreads were faded and tattered and the carpet was stained. The laundry area was hot and expensive and cost $10 for two loads of clothes.
The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was ok, but had the same things every day. It was such a disappointment when compared to the Hilton Garden Inn we stayed in the night before and for less money.

My stay at Acadia Inn was wonderful. The room was clean,roomey and comfortable. The bathroom was very bright. I really liked the fact that I was on the third floor and able to open the windows. The staff were friendly,helpful and very professional. I went to watch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain in the morning and really enjoyed the continental breakfast that awaited me when I got back to the hotel. The Getaway Package was great. I can not wait until next Oct. so I can do it all again. Thank you Acadia Inn for a WONDERFUL vacation experience. The dinner at Bar Harbor Inn was very,very good and the wait staff was so much fun.

The Adacia Inn was a nice basic, older hotel. It was comfortable and clean and included a refridgerator, free Internet, and a basic breakfast. Driving is required to get to restaurants, Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Park. The staff was very friendly. It was a good overnight stop on a long driving trip, with a nice clean laundry facility. Next time we will spend more time in Bar Harbor and will stay in town to enjoy walking to cute stores and nice restaurants.

We stayed at the Acadia Inn for three nights during August. We found nothing outstandingly good about the hotel but, on the other hand, there was nothing to complain about. There were lots of parking bays. Our room was fairly large, well equipped, clean and functional. The staff were friendly and responsive. The continental breakfast was adequate.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone seeking a base from to which to explore Bar Harbour and the surrounding area.

Pros: room was clean, we could control temp., the hotel-to-town shuttle was free and easy to use, the microfridge, mini gift shop and board games were nice touches; the kids enjoyed the pool and the breakfast, which was better than a continental breakfast.
Cons: stairwell smelled dirty, desk staff disengaged, room walls a bit thin, no scenic view from hotel, the walk to Bar Harbor is on a busy road.
