5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

I travel to Bar Harbor for business off season and this is the most comfortable place to stay in Bar harbor, especially the rooms facing the ocean. Be sure to eat in the bar too, the Lobster Bisque is the BEST I've ever had. Even off season, this place is very warm and friendly.

While visiting Bar Harbor before on a cruise stop, I saw the Bar Harbor Inn and thought it would be a lovely place to stay someday. Well, I finally got my chance and it was perfect. We stayed in the newer Lodge part of the Inn and it was a great choice for exploring the town and Acadia Natl. Park in depth. We booked a downstairs room, the very furthest one from the Inn and it was quiet, private, and the view of Frenchman's Bay was just spectacular. The continental breakfast was really amazing, the best of its kind I have seen, and it is served in a really nice central room in the middle of the lodge wing. The Inn itself is lovely and has a cozy bar (nice bartenders), and we had lovely dinners in the restaurant. Make reservations to sit by the windows in the restaurant for one of the best sunset and night time views anywhere, really beautiful. The lodge is actually just a nicer large motel attached to the Inn, the rooms are modern and comfortable and considering the spectacular setting and the very good breakfast the rates are really very reasonable. It is an all around good choice

Best location in Bar Harbor. 4th of July it's the place to be. Fireworks right off the pier in front of the Hotel grounds. The fireworks debris falls right on your head! Park here and walk everyplace in the village.

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour of Maine. We originally thought it might be too expensive but found the Lodge part (this is like two hotels in one; the Inn and the Lodge) and the rate was good, including continental breakfast.

The room was big enough for us and the beds were comfortable. The only down side was the bathroom which was very ordinary and more like a motel.

However, the great feature was the position right on the bay with fantastic views of the harbour and of the coast. It was magnificent to see the sunrise over the bay.

The Inn is well positioned for the town and the harbour. There was adequate parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the Lodge (100's or 200's) with a balcony overlooking the water. The view...

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Inn, Bar Harbor, Maine while visiting Acadia National Park. We absolutely loved this place. Our room with a private balcony had a spectacular view of the water. The complimentary breakfast was very nice, as were the dinners at the main dining room. Only a short drive to Acadia and a short walk to the town of Bar Harbor, the location is perfect.

Room Tip: Stay in the Lodge with a view of the ocean.
