The Bar Harbor Inn offers a great location and terrific views of the harbor. The rooms are more hotel like than an Inn, and the breakfast is pretty Plain Jane. That said, it's hard to beat the location and the place was clean and the employees friendly. I stayed there in high season and the place bore it well. I'd...

Overall our stay was wonderful. We had room 304 in the Oceanfront Lodge with a beautiful view of the harbor. Staff was very friendly & knowledgeable, helping find ways to navigate Acadia, even though it was closed at the time. Rooms we're very clean & fairly up to date. Hotel is within walking distance to all downtown shops and restaurants,...

My wife and I enjoyed another October stay at the Bar Harbor Inn. Our room was in the original building and had two double beds, new furnishings and a large recently updated bathroom. The Historic Inn is located on the waterfront and only a five minute walk to downtown. The view of the harbor from our patio was spectacular. We...

We really enjoyed staying at the Bar Harbor Inn in September. We were in the area detached from the main building, right on the water. This is the very best water view in Bar Harbor, in my opinion. It is quiet there and you can hear the surf beating the rocks out your window. The balcony is to die for!!...

The rooms at the lodge have excellent views. I didn't see any hotels in the area that compared. The rooms were clean and the staff was amazing. They were there when we arrived to carry our bags up two flights in the rain. Acadia is beautiful and so are the views from Cadillac mountain. Lots of great places to eat...

We loved the location and the setting of this established hotel. The evening front desk staff were very helpful with our dinner reservations for the 4 days we were there. We could walk everywhere in town yet away from the crowded Main Street . They also have a very nice continental breakfast that is included . Be sure to have...

Admittedly the rooms could use an update,but they are sound-proof and clean. Beyond that the meals are outstanding, that's why I recommend the package deals. Staff is freindly, helpful and honest. Great location on shoreline in center of Bar Harbor.

Stayed one night during our visit to Acadia National Park. You cannot beat the location of this hotel but the rooms (at least in the Newport building) where we stayed the night are in serious need of updating. Their decor remains stuck in the 1970's or 1980's. For the price, I expect more. However, breakfast was nice and the ability...
