“Beautiful”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We went off-season which is suggested! Right on water and just outside of downtown. $5 cab ride - good deal. The grounds needed a little TLC. The outside bar was comfortable. We did not sample the on-premise restaurant instead choosing for the short ride to town. The fitness room was way too small for the size of the hotel. Overall, though, this hotel and its location are perfect for a quick getaway.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms make the accommodation. We upgraded from the parking lot side.

We had a great 3 day visit. All staff were very friendly, especially the gardener who took the time to discuss day lilies and hostas planting and propagation with us. King bed very comfortable and view of bay nice. Weather was cool during our stay so we greatly enjoyed the heated pool. We only ate our breakfast at the hotel which was a great value. Loved the free shuttle, enjoyed jaunts into town each night. Quaint village atmosphere, good variety of shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: We had a partial view. Faced the quiet side of the building. Though we didn't face the front, ba...

Room was clean & kids loved the bunk beds in the family suite. Loved swimming in heated pool despite the rain. Wished the convenience shop was open past 11 am. Would be nice in the evening. Liked free shuttle. Laundry $2.5/load/machine. Power outage at checkin & they handled very well.

We took a midweek trip to Bar Harbor for first time. about a 6 hour drive from Boston traveling on a Tuesday. We booked the room through Hotels.com thinking it was a pretty decent rate for the Summer. Pictures of the Hotel were a little bit different to what we saw when we got there. Hotel grounds were well laid out however the overall hotel looked like the upkeep went south for summer. Room was dirty. We were promised an Ocean View when we got to front desk the young clerk said they did not have an Ocean view but a partial Ocean view for the price we booked. The room over looked a parking lot....couldn't even see the ocean. Swimming pool was not cleaned in am as I got up at 5 and was at pool whole time and no one came out to do anything. The only good thing at this hotel was the Tiki Bar and staff there.

Room Tip: Be sure when you ask for Ocean view that is what you're getting!

Bar Harbor is crowded in the summer and crowded hotels are to be expected. We looked at two rooms before choosing and that was a good thing to do. There are 'ocean view' and 'standard' rooms with an obvious price differential. We chose the standard. But even in the standard rooms there is a difference. The room we finally took was on the parking-lot side of the main building. It was larger than the standard room on the ocean side and was actually quieter since we didn't hear the noise of the restaurant. The hotel's reception area was well furnished with couches and chairs, which was good because, with only 2 people working as receptionists, there is the possibility of a good wait.

In the room, the bed was excellent and the bathroom well appointed. The shower had plenty of hot water and good pressure. Room lighting was good and so was the air conditioning.

The housekeeping service was very efficient.

The receptionists were, probably, somewhat overworked and that led to a certain brusqueness in dealing with people and passing on information. Their friendliness seems forced rather than genuine.

There are two elevators but only one goes down to the ground level so you can get to the good outdoor pool and the exercise room.

One thing we did notice that should change: the entry to the hotel. The doors should be sliding, automatic doors. We noticed several elderly or disabled guests really struggle to get themselves and/or luggage out to a car.

I was not expecting this hotel to be as nice as it is due to the mixed reviews. We stayed in the main hotel in a room overlooking the pool/bay. The room was a bit dated but still very clean.
La Bella Vita restaurant is decent and we had a good meal there one evening. The breakfast buffet is the same every day but since we have kids it did not really bother us and worth the $10 extra per day. The only problem was the pool area needs more seating and/or has to be re-designed. There were alot of people just sitting at the pool not swimming. Both times I took my kids to the pool I was unable to find a place to put our towels/clothing.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a good view, you need to book an oceanfront room in the main building.
