This hotel is older but has all the necessary amenities and a location right on the water that you cannot beat. "Pros" include the location, the staff (exceptionally helpful), the complimentary breakfast, the free shuttle into town and the ocean views from each room. Very conveniently located close to town and the entrance of Acadia National Park. The only "con"...

The hotel offers some of the best views around, very clean and very close to Bar Harbor and the park. The free shuttle service is great especially in the busy peak time season. The breakfast is fantastic with lots of options. All the staff is very friendly and very helpful for recommendations about the area.

We normally stay at the other famous Bar Harbor hotel. Our first time staying here. Absolutely loved it. Wouldn't change a thing. Ever hear of. "Continental" breakfast with eggs and sausage. They have it. View is spectacular. And it's very quit. 5 minutes to town. Perfect. Booked same room for next year.

We had visited the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel the end of July and would return in a heartbeat!

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
