Beautiful views of the water!

Posted Aug 11, 2017
This hotel is comfortable with a big plus being the close proximity to the water. We had a porch on the first floor that looked right out to the water. We enjoyed the breakfast and being right by Acadia. Downtown Bar Harbor is not far away and there are TONS of great restaurants and shops there. Rent bikes and bike through Bar Harbor if you get a chance also...beautiful!

Great location and staff

Posted Aug 8, 2017
Amazing view of the ocean. People aboard the free shuttle to and from Bar Harbor commented that they wished they would've stayed at our hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was older and had we stayed in the newer buildings may have given more 5's. We did enjoy the patio on the lower floor. The breakfast could've been better but the view while you were eating surely helped.

Okay visit

I wasn't impressed by housekeeping or the breakfast crew. Housekeeping did a poor job cleaning the room, replenishing towels, etc. Breakfast was a zoo and not very good. The only positive thing about our stay was the view.

Great hotel and location

Posted Jul 30, 2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: I had no issues and have no complaints.
Location: 1 mile from Bar Harbor village. Sidewalks the entire way if you want to walk. Acadia National Park was about 2 miles away.
We stayed in the Atlantic house and had a wonderful view of the water. It was fun to watch the people boarding/unboarding the 2 boats docked there for fishing trips and sight-seeing. The room was large, with 2 queen beds and a 3-speed ceiling fan which was great for those of us not wanting the AC on all night. Continental breakfast included a hot meal option as well as the usual offerings. The walk to town was just a mile and and there were sidewalks the entire way. Buses to/from town ran continuously, but we chose to walk. I would definitely stay there again.

Good room, great view, strange policies

Posted Jul 21, 2017
The room that we stayed in was beautiful. The view from our balcony was just gorgeous. My only complaint is that they had a strange policy. We tried to prepay our two nights about 6 months ago only to find that they only charged the first night to our account and we're planning on charging the second night upon check-in. We didn't realize that the money hadn't been pulled from our account because we were planning a rather large trip and had a lot of money going in and out. It was unfortunate because we didn't budget to spend $400+ upon arrival. How do we been expecting that, this day would have been absolutely perfect!

Thank you for your feedback. Upon making the reservation we just take a one night deposit to hold the room for you. The whole stay can be paid up front, if you call in and let us know. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope we can better serve you in the future. -Norma

Right on the bay

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Nice hotel convenient to everything! Island Explorer stops here. Breakfast was so so. Patios were unkept with many spider webs all about. Check in was kind of cold as staff did not smile, did not thank me for staying there, kept interaction to a bare minimum. Rooms are too small for 4 people. We had 5 and got charged 15.00 a night for a cot. Also charged 30.00 for fifth person.

Great ocean views. Having your own balcony afforded you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the sea air and view. Would definitely stay there again.
