If you're not willing to spend the bucks or can't get reservations downtown, this is a very nice hotel. It's about a 5-minute car or shuttle ride to downtown Bar Harbor. The rooms were clean, spacious, quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The grounds and views of Frenchman Bay are beautiful. Sadly, wifi access was pretty much non-existent (we were in the middle of the 3rd floor) and there were insufficient outlets in the room for standard electronics. There's no free breakfast, although the breakfast buffet at La Bella Vita had many decent food choices and was very good for $14.95. Unfortunately, the other 2 restaurants on site had closed for the season after Labor Day (we were there in late September). Aside from the aforementioned drawbacks, we had a very nice and comfortable stay.
