This hotel is in a great location in downtown Bar Harbor. We stayed in the Dorr Mountain Suite with friends - the suite was spacious with a seating area and a dining table for 4 people - and a lovely (sunny) balcony. The bedrooms were not huge and little hanging space, but the beds were comfortable and it was very...

Stayed here for a week in October. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms. A bonus for us was the 40A Tesla charging point at the side of the hotel, with its own reserved parking spot. Lots of small extras provided that we did not use such as loaner bikes, hot tub, etc. Not cheap, but a good stay.

This hotel makes you feel at home. There was a fire pit burning on the wrap around porch along with heaters and comfy wicker furniture. The front door was always open and there was a water and lemonade station set up on the porch for guests. The location of the hotel is perfect, right in downtown Bar Harbor and also...

I can't say enough good things about Acadia Hotel. My girlfriend and I stayed there for 2 nights in mid September. First off, we were fortunate to receive an upgrade to the Cadillac Mountain suite which had 2 enormous rooms and had a large balcony. Peter checked us in and gave us his recommendations for restaurants in Bar Harbor and...

We stayed here for a couple of nights in October to enjoy the Fall and explore Acadia National Park. It's an excellent hotel in a superb location almost exactly opposite the village green with all Bar Harbor has to offer right on the door step. The room was clean, tidy and very well presented. The bed was particularly comfortable.

Lovely stay overall! Rooms well appointed however the issue unfortunately was noise. The old window mounted unit was horribly noisy and with the windows open one could hear the tour buses driving past. Good off-street parking and close to the town centre which was great being able to walk to everything. Overall a pleasant stay.

Wonderful greeting from the staff! So helpful, even moved my car for me. Husband enjoyed the hot tub in back very much after a busy day. Rooms were immaculate, beds were soft and comfortable. Location is handy for the free shuttle. I was only sorry we could not stay longer!

My wife and I loved our time at the Acadia hotel. The staff was accommodating, rooms were clean and the location was excellent. Couldn't recommend highly enough. The free bus the the park was less than 2 blocks away which made things very easy to get to the best part.
