Stayed here 2 nights for a conference. Easy check in, courteous staff, clean rooms and spectacular views from our patio of the water. The young man (Adam?) was very polite and gracious as we came in while he was cleaning. Great place for a nice run near the water and gym with ample equipment. Restaurant/bar had great food and pleasant...

This is one of the few high-end places to stay in Bar Harbor. There are lots of motels and B&Bs in the area, so if you prefer a full-service hotel, this is one of your only options. The location is great -- it's on the water and walking distance to everything. We enjoyed dining onsite at La Bella Vita, offering...

Great location, right downtown and waterfront. Rooms comfortable but plain, with small kitchenette. Lobby nice and inviting. Plenty of parking. Hotel layout its bit confusing and not well mapped with that said you can easily get lost and not all of the buildings connect, so you may end up at dead end. There are also areas that could use more...

We stayed here for 4 nights (2 families). Our room was a 2 bedroom oceanfront suite with a jacuzzi on the balcony for the kids.
