We visit Acadia every year and always stay on the Quiet Side of MDI bc we prefer to be away from the crowds and closer to hiking, biking and kayaking trails. This year, we decided to extend our trip by staying at a hotel on Saturday night and choose the Bar Harbor Regency/Holiday Inn for our stay. We selected this hotel bc we knew it was in a good location, had an Ocean front pool and had availability for Saturday night. The rate was $279, which we considered reasonable for the high season. The hotel was an older property showing significant signs of age in the hallway, room and balcony and outdoor common areas. The only sign of any recent upgrade was in the bathroom, it was clear ours has been redone within the last five years. The pool area has potential to be gorgeous - however - threadbare pool towels and a poorly maintained pool area suggested the property owners did not have much interest in upkeep. In addition, although we had an ocean view room - the view was diminished by the roof of the restaurant, which was visually pretty darn ugly. We were only staying one night, so it wasn't a big deal for us. That said, I would not stay here again unless the owners invest in a complete renovation. Until then, we'll look to extend our annual stay in Acadia at a property that is newer and/or maintained better.
