Stayed 4 nights in mid May. Had a room in the Newport Buildings which doesn't have a sea view. Room fine and had everything you would expect, but no character. Probably unfair, but really an above average motel room. Common areas in the main building nice. Best things about hotel were the location, right in the centre but in a...

My wife and I stayed at the BHI last month during Memorial Day Weekend. This oceanside resort exudes an understated, easygoing elegance in all respects. We particularly enjoyed the warm and welcoming lobby, the comfortable, spacious room (we were in the main building), the shoreside walking trail, the fitness center, and the easy access to Acadia National Park, which is...

WE stayed here in May 2014. The hotel lobby and location are awsome. However, the rooms were not good. We stayed at a garden view room away from the maine building, the carptes were gross and the room smelt musty. May the rooms with an ocean view are nicer

Although we didn't stay at the Inn, we toured the grounds, rooms and actually used the spa. The spa staff were very nice and friendly. The prices for their services were pretty good.

You cannot beat this location - we looked at several options and kept coming back to two criteria: 1) want to be as close to the water as possible and 2) don't want to have to drive to dinner/town. BHI fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in the Oceanfront Lodge which was right on the walking path. Our luck did...

We were here for 5 nights in May around memorial day. Nice rooms, big but not too modern. Good continental breakfast - great personell there but they try to sell you the breakfast specials in another restaurant. Much too expensive for what you get but still ok. Check in ok
