Rooms were very nice and very comfortable, large bathrooms, employees were pleasant and helpful, the breakfasts were delicious, and you can't beat the location and views. So glad they are located on the outskirts of the town, didn't have to deal with the crowds and traffic.

I was at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel for a conference. Despite the unusually cold and wet weather, I had an excellent trip. The room was huge with a balcony facing the ocean, and we got an excellent conference rate. We had a lot of space in the conference center for our work and it was really nice. The staff carefully...

We stayed two nights and wished we had booked a third but summer was busy so they were booked up and we couldn't stay and extra night. But we'll be back. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the water. Free breakfast was the best free breakfast I've ever seen. They even have a gluten free section! Close to...

Amazing visit! A few reasons we loved it here: - Views: Absolutely beautiful, scenic views from every room in the hotel. Amazing grounds right on the water with picturesque landscaping and gazebos. - Location: Easy access to Acadia and Bar Harbor, both of which are well worth the visit. Do not miss the sunrise at Cadillac Mountain! The staff will...

The room was nice and clean and the view was very good. Front desk workers were very nice and friendly. Have stayed in much nicer hotels in Bar Harbor and much worse. We stayed April 18-20 and a lot of the town shuts down for the winter and does not open back up until May. There was a lot of...

A bit too far to walk into town but that makes it quiet for a peaceful night. Great place to stay for a trip into Acardia National Park. We stayed here two nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. We were there before 1st May so lots of places were still closed for the season.

Nice facility, close to downtown. Small restaurant, what you see in photos is all you get, thought it would be larger. Very small bar with slow service since the bartender was also the waiter. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on 12 beautiful acres just one mile from downtown Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia National Park, the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel offers an ocean view from every room. Our brand new Atlantic View building offers everything you would expect from a modern hotel with fantastic views. Close enough to all the action of town, but just far enough away so you can relax. Our new rooms, friendly staff, and seasonal packages are the perfect combination of quality and value. Let us show you how beautiful the Maine coast can be.The AO is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its all new Bistro on Eden, a full service restaurant and bar.And with a great location comes great responsibility. The Bistro on Eden is a warm, lively restaurant and bar where people can be themselves and meet others in a friendly, comfortable setting. Overlooking Frenchman's Bay it offers smashing views and intimate outdoor seating, where every seat faces the Atlantic Ocean. We feature great tasting fresh, seasonal comfort cooking with ingredients that are primarily sourced from local, small scale vendors. Above all you can expect warm, genuine service. That is something upon which we pride ourselves.We are located inside the lobby of the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel, 119 Eden St. Bar Harbor, and Maine 04609. Open Wed. ~ Sat. 5Pm ~ 9pm ... more   less
