Atlantic Oceanside Hotel and Event Center
Ranked #12 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 November 2017

Staff is friendly and helpful. Slightly dated with some updates, but comfortable and I can tell they have made improvements to cater to a new generation of travelers. If you're in Bar Harbor for hiking and spending most of your day outside, this is a good place to stay. Free breakfast is well intentioned and staff is very polite and picked up my dirty dishes. I stay occasionally for overnight work travels.

Room Tip: Pretty ocean views and sunrise

The hotel was average. Comfortable rooms and a normal continental breakfast. Very helpful staff and well maintained grounds. Small restaurant for dining with good food. Outside of busy downtown area but quick access to town.

Buckle up. Many aspects to discuss in this review.
Value as compared to other available options during our stay was off the chart. In some cases as much as half.

We were fortunate to get a waterfront room with walkout patio. Spectacular view. But the layout and design of the disjointed buildings on the property offered a little challenge to find our room and they didn’t even have a property map. Parking for this building was limited to about 6 spaces for about a dozen rooms. I could see how parking could be a nightmare on a fully booked stay. There are plenty of on site parking, they will just be a little further from your room.

The room was your typical aging hotel but that kind of adds to the “feel” of timeless vacations. After all, this is not a place to spend your time in a hotel room. There are so many beautiful outdoor vistas and numerous activities to keep you busy from well before sunrise atop Cadillac Mtn. to well after dark dining and shopping in town.

But where it failed in one of the most critical aspects of our stay, this was by far the most uncomfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. It was noted at checkout and we didn’t request restitution as we felt the view and cost outweighed the discomfort. Perhaps this was one room or building that hasn’t had an upgrade yet. Maybe it just wasn’t in our comfort zone but you may be tired enough after your daily excursions that you don’t even notice.

For the value we would stay here again.

While the hotel was nice, I have stayed in nicer hotels for less money. The view from the room/balcony was great but there was no room service, breakfast was buffet and the restaurant was not open for lunch.

The room/facilities were clean and all of the staff were very polite.

Just stayed there for the weekend and can't say anything bad about this property. Fantastic location about a 5 min drive from Bar Harbor. The staff were all exceptionally friendly, the room was spacious and clean and we lucked out by getting an oceanside room. It's not a 5 star resort with all the bells and whistles, but if you're looking for a really nice property with convenient access to town and Acadia National Park, you really can't go wrong here. I'd stay here again for sure. One suggestion. If you see the white chocolate chip/macadamia nut cookies by the front desk, take 2. Or three if nobody is looking!
