Great military discount!!! Room was. Rey clean and orderly. Hotel motif is simple but elegant at the same time. Staff was Texas friendly! Breakfast is plentiful and better than most continental breakfast offerings. Right downtown close to everything. Parking could be limited during peak times, but street parking is very convenient. Will absolutely stay again.

My husband and I came up to the Bar Harbor area after he ran the Boston marathon. The city was mostly still shut down for the season, but we were immensely happy with the Bar Harbor Grand Hotel. The receptionists were friendly and welcoming and everything you would want in a hotel staff. The room was clean, well-kept, and nice....

You stayed here several times during the off-season. Always clean always quiet. Breakfast is offered including fruit cereal muffins eggs yogurt and breads. Hotel is always clean. Great location in downtown within walking distance of many restaurants and stores and some trails. A pleasant bonus is the bath and bodyworks products in the bathroom including shampoo conditioner and soap. Parking...

The hotel was great, staff was friendly. Easy parking. Located centrally. Everything was perfect about the hotel. We had people in the next room partying pretty late, so that was kind of a bummer, but at 11:30PM the hotel staff told them to quiet down. So all in all, it was a good place to stay.

We stayed here for four nights in mid-April, and it was the perfect base for exploring the island. The location is great, at the edge of "downtown" Bar Harbor. You won't have the view of the bay, but you aren't paying for it, either. The hotel is right across from a street that leads to the shore walk, and about...

We stayed in April so we got a great price and missed the crowds. The staff was very friendly. We stayed in a 2 queen room, very roomy with a small fridge. Even though our room was next to the elevator it was very quiet. Beds were nice and firm. The continental breakfast included eggs ( cheese omelets one morning...

We occupied 3 rooms for 3 families with 9 members. Overall, we are satisfied with our stay. What we expect for the price we pay. The staff are cheerful, helpful and truly accommodating. The included continental breakfast are satisfying enough. Sausage links and scrambled eggs on the first day and bacon & cheese omelet as main fare on the 2nd...

Great Bar Harbor location with good service and amenities. Comfy beds and clean bathrooms. We were here in the off season, so the price was heavily discounted. A great value in a charming town. We hope to return in the summer.

The hotel is right on the main street and has a great location. Walking distance to most local attractions including the Shore Path. Rooms are lovely and a great size. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable about local area and hiking routes.
