I was impressed with the spacious, well-appointed room which included a comfortable living room area, gas fireplace, and a good-sized balcony overlooking a spectacular view. The double-sink vanity area was separated from the bathroom. A fridge, microwave and coffee maker came in handy too. Clean, comfortable beds, quiet surroundings, and good housekeeping services complete the package. Very good value.

It's a great hotel with the only complaint being the mattress was too soft for my liking. The staff was professional, the room was spacious and well equipped, and the amenities we're still available late in the season.

I was pretty amazed at his hotel. It is a large place. My room was huge with a gas fireplace and an ocean view!! I personally didn't care for the patterns they used for curtains and such but it worked for the overall atmosphere they were creating. It is a very short drive to the shops of Bar Harbor. Everything...

Our stay was late in the season (;ate Octpber) with many restaurants and other hotels/motels closed or about to close, but that meant a great room rate for us. Weather was cool (n the 40's and 50's) but good enough to take advantage of the nearby wonders of Acadia National Park (hiking and biking) and the Fall colors were still...

This is just a beautiful place to stay. We had a a beautiful view of the bay, there were a couple of cruise ships anchored in the bay and the rooms were just lovely. We will stay here again the next time we come to Maine. The service to incredible and the food was wonderful, especially the breakfast buffet.

Noisy rooms ("stenna nordica" house). Gym equipment in bad condition, partially broken, room smutched - no cleaning within 3 days of our stay. House keeping was only scratching the surfaces. Friendly staff on check in and out.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The view was more than we dreamed it would be. We arrived after dark and were thrilled when we awoke the next morning.

Our room had a nice view and at an affordable price. Room was large and bed comfortable. Clean hotel with nice amenities, including a lounge in evening, coffee throughout day and a free breakfast area. Only drawback was that we did not take into account the balconies outside rooms and the noise that would filter in from cars parking/leaving, their...

We had a great experience at the Bluenose Inn. We paid a bit extra to stay in Mizzentop (the name for their main building) on a higher floor with a view and it was SO worth it. We had a balcony with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The building is older but has all the modern updates to make...

The Bluenose is good but could use some improvements. The rooms were clean and spacious (we were upgraded to a better room after some issues with our check-in) and had excellent views. The location was great, about a 5 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor. Our room had a working fireplace in it and there is live piano music in...
