Our early April visit limited our options, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great rate, superb view and helpful staff made this an unexpected plus. Simple breakfast was included and a short drive to the township provided just enough dining options for the time of year.

We stayed in the Main Building and found our room simple, but functional and the balcony was postioned to enjoy the cool breezes of the early Spring mornings and evenings.

Stayed here two nights last August and was very disppointed. The website boasted of an indoor and outdoor pool and a beach, but there was only an indoor pool which was heavily chlorinated (due to the kids?!). The main building is sorely in need of some updating. The rooms were fine, with OK beds and a decent sitting area but the walls are paper thin - we could clearly overhear our neighbour's conversation. Breakfast was included in the price but was very basic. Expensive for what you get.

Thank you for your comments. I apologize that your stay was not up to your expectations and that the outdoor pool was not available during your visit. I regret that we did not meet our goal of providing quality accommodations during your stay.
We have been in the process of working on property wide upgrades, most of which have now been completed. Part of this upgrade was the completion of our brand new Atlantic View Building which sits just 100 feet from the shore. This building also features our brand new oversize outdoor pool and hot tub.
We have upgraded our breakfast offerings since you stayed with us last year. We now offer a complimentary continental breakfast. This year we also have a full service breakfast menu available in season for guests that prefer a more complete breakfast option. Our full breakfast menu will include items such as locally made sausage, berries and cheeses as well as free range eggs. Another choice is our popular vacations packages which include the full service breakfast option as well as dinner at the Bar Harbor Inn and great activity choices.
Our desire is to make every guest’s stay in Bar Harbor a positive experience. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that you can experience our sincere efforts to improve our quality of service and accommodations.

Atlantic Oceanside was lovely. We stayed in the new building. I went for business and brought the family.

The staff is amazing. Tim, Deedee, and Taylor at the front desk were thoughtful, kind, considerate and resourceful.

The room was spotless! The bed was soft with plenty of pillows and the sheets were great. I like rooms that have a safe and a small fridge. And the view - oh the view was divine! Hubby and I had a nice cold local brew on the balcony enjoyed the view a perfect end to a lot of hard work.

The pool where my little one spent several hours was also clean and heated to a just right temperature. There were also plenty of clean towels and the wifi at the pool and a lounger did the trick for me to catch up on news and email.

I had to also arrange travel for several other people to stay at the Atlantic Oceanside and they thought is was great too.

Thank you Atlantic Oceanside! You all did a great job and our family will be coming back!

Have loved his place for years but not so much of a fan of all the trees and buildings they removed. They used to be the perfect place to go with your dog but those buildings were removed. We stayed last June during construction of the new building. It really does not blend well and care was not taken to preserve the trees and secluded atmosphere. We have been staying here for 22 years about I-2 times per year. We enjoyed the view, atmosphere and balcony. Good beds, pool, breakfast, and friendly. Their reservations are a bit of a hassle when staying with dogs. We were told no dog rooms then there were dog rooms. I know they now accept pets on a limited basis.

The staff is great but I really liked the old hotel without the new building. We have even stayed off season( December). I guess if you did not see and know the before, the after is a good reliable bet in BarHarbor.

Room Tip: Trythemainbuilding for wifi but waters edge is very secluded and beautiful.

We were looking for a winter getaway that was economical but still nice and we found it at the Atlantic Oceanside! Our 4th floor king room was very nice and the view was amazing. This alone was worth the cost of our Wine and Dine special. The seawater pool was fun and the hot tub had great jets. The facility was exceptionally clean and the people were very friendly. We were equally impressed with Mama Diamateo's for dinner. This was everything we hoped for in our winter getaway and the price was perfect! We will go back again!
