We had a great experience from start to finish! The front desk attendees were all friendly and helpful. They eagerly provided restaurant recommendations and always greeted us whenever we walked past. The room was great: clean, big (we had a king bed room) and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on! The location was perfect--it...

Hotel was within short distance to all restaurants, shops and waterfront. Parking is included and that is key. Friendly front desk, comfy bed and super generous continental breakfast. Can't do better.

Hotel is located in the downtown of bar harbor, it's in walking distance to most of the restaurants, gift shops and close to Acadia national park. The lobby smelled musty the day we check-in, good our room didn't have that smell. Not sure how often they clean/wash the carpets because the one in our room looked dark and stained. Mattress...

We did have...

I would recommend this hotel. The rooms were decent size and clean. The breakfast was just OK. It was standard free breakfast fare. I stayed three days but ate out the final day to get something better. The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is in a perfect spot -- an easy walk to all the shops...

Stayed two nights here while hiking in Arcadia. The Main Street location made walking to dinner, etc. easy. The complementary breakfast is more than adequate. Our two queen bed room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Perfect for our need!

Im delighted that I read reviews on Grand Hotel. I had stayed right down the street last year and while it was nice, this was outstanding. We were greeted by Patricia and another very friendly woman. The lobby is very clean, and the fruit infused water is a major bonus. The rooms were very clean, spacious, comfortable and no strange...
