Visited the Best Western from 9/19/2020 to 9/26/2020, staying in room 303 (2 Queen bed room) which was on the front side of the hotel very close to the office area and a short walk to the breakfast room and pool-area ice machine. The room was very nice, clean, modern and up-to-date, had plenty of electrical outlets for my devices (a great perk), and a great HVAC unit. I supposed many folks would be running heat at the time of my visit, but I love a cold room, so I ran the A/C or at least the fan most of the time. Due to Covid, no room service was happening at the time, but that was fine. I simply sat the trash bags out whenever they needed emptying, and new bags were furnished upon request. Whenever I needed new towels or linens, I simply called the front desk and they hung new ones on the door in a bag, and I bagged up the dirty ones and sat them outside the door as well. Bathroom was good, with lots of counter space on the sink area, an overhead light inside the shower stall (a real plus). I'm used to a "grab bar" inside the shower, so was disappointed there wasn't one inside. Room had a mini-fridge and microwave which I made good use of during the visit. My only real complaint was the lack of a hot breakfast, as all they were having due to Covid was "grab and go" items. I had to buy my "hot food items" elsewhere, then heat it up in the room in the mornings. I felt that an equivalent discount per night was in order due to the fact I had to spend extra money elsewhere to get a hot breakfast each morning. Considering my stay was for a full week, this added up to around $70, and a discount on the room rate would've been very handy. Perhaps this and all other hotels which offer a hot breakfast normally should consider daily gift cards to local restaurants to replace that meal most folks would get at the hotel instead of offering these "grab and go" items, as they just don't do the job a hot breakfast would do in getting one going in the morning. The staff was excellent to deal with during the visit, however. Everyone was friendly and helpful; it was nice seeing the same faces each day. Each evening, I went to the lobby to collect the "complementary cookies" offered, and it was always a pleasure to do so. There was even a "welcome gift" awaiting my arrival at the front desk upon check-in. I received a gift basket with some local food and drink items which I enjoyed a lot, and a nice wooden cutting board. While the location of this hotel isn't "right in" downtown Bar Harbor, it wasn't too far a drive, and traffic was never an issue between the hotel and town during our stay. It was very convenient to the Mainely Meats BBQ location just a short distance down the road, which I frequented during my visit. All in all, I would highly recommend a stay at the Best Western Acadia Inn while visiting the area. Hoping to return again someday in "non-Covid" times when things are much more "normal" in circumstances.

We thank you very much for your stay and this great review. We also wish to have our breakfast buffet back to normal. Our offerings did include heated breakfast sandwiches and offered hot oatmeal as a cereal choice. I am happy you chose to visit our neighboring restaurant to enjoy a larger, hotter meal. We do hope you will stay again in the non-Covid times ahead and see just how great our breakfast is under usual circumstances. Stay well and thank you again! Acadia Jane

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed here for several nights while visiting Acadia. I called the desk ahead, informing them of our late arrival. They gladly made arrangements to leave our room key in a disclosed location . We found our envelope with key, and all important information. The room was very clean and very spacious. The breakfast offered plenty of prepacked foods, as cereal, yogurt, bagel, muffin, and more along with bananas and drinks. The kitchen staff person serving the food was very welcoming and warm. The front desk staff was very eager to suggest nearby places for dinner and directions. They replenished out towels, toiletries and more by dropping them off in a plastic bag by the door inside your room. We left our used towels and trash outside of our door and it was collected immediately. The heater/AC in the room worked very well but was a bit noisy at times. Internet was great . This hotel is very close to the national park entrance and downtown. Great find. We will certainly return.

A fairly last-minute covid vacation -- I booked about a week before our early Oct trip, and was surprised to find this hotel (and just about everything else we drove past) to be fully booked when we arrived. We spent five nights here, and found this to be a great base for exploring Acadia. We were happy not to have stayed in downtown Bar Harbor. It was easy enough (and quick enough) to drive into town for dinners, and this was a good location to explore main Park Loop area, SW Harbor area, and Schoodic Peninsula. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with good layout and microwave/fridge. Didn't have many interactions with staff, but those we did encounter were extremely pleasant and helpful. Packaged grab-and-go breakfast items didn't do it for me -- but the hotel gets points for trying to keep everyone safe. All in all, a really good experience.

Lisa, thank you for taking the time to post this review. We hope to see you again when the Covid virus is history so that you can enjoy our usual awesome breakfast buffet as well as the extras we place in rooms. Unfortunately we have had to remove many items for safety's sake this year. Pre-packaged items for our breakfast is a law and also requested by Best Western. Unfortunately we are not a restaurant and cannot do as they do. We appreciate the compliments on the cleanliness and comfortable accommodations we provide. Warm wishes , Acadia Jane

This is our second stay at this hotel. The rooms are clean, no evidence of bedbugs, and you exit your room to your parking space which is convenient if you have bikes or things you want from the car. Staff is present until 9pm and you recognize the same faces that staff the dining area, front desk, cleaning crew. Everyone is very polite and it appears that they reinforce physical distancing and masking. Breakfast offerings are prepackaged and processed, but there are hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, , oranges and bananas if you favor unprocessed.

We are happy that you found us following the specific safety guidelines set out for our guest and staff' sake. We appreciate your stay and your lovely review. We try to have as many offerings as possible on our pre-packaged breakfast. We are grateful bananas and oranges already come that way. Thankfully we have not had issues with any bed bugs for years and pray it stays that way. Thank you. Best wishes , Acadia Jane

Check-in was flawlessly efficient, contact free, and pleasant. The express check-out made things effortless when leaving, and the amenities offered in the room were clean and pleasant. The Grab-and-go breakfast was an outstanding value, safely individually packaged and offering a wonderful selection of food options both hot and cold. The bed was spacious, clean, and amazingly comfortable.
