You don't have the view that you would have at a place like the Bar Harbor Inn (down the road), but the location is still great because it is on the main road downtown Bar Harbor.

This place was great. We went the last weekend before the off season and the help was great. First floor rooms had new mattresses and they where very clean. Breakfast was decent and great for a quick bite. A great great place for a weekend !

Authentic, professional customer service from beginning to end. Location terrific. Clean room. Nostalgic view of "Maine" street in a small town with lots to offer. Would I do it again? Just say when. I would recommend Bar Harbor Hotel in a heartbeat.

Beautifully clean room, helpful and friendly staff, and let me tell ya about breakfast... I wish I had such a variety at my house each day!

This is a great hotel when you decide to visit the beautiful Mount Desert Island. Located on Main Street in downtown Bar Harbor, it is within easy walking distance of numerous shops, restaurants, and quaint (or should I say quirky) movie theaters. We went in the off-season (early November), so many of the places were closed. However, there's still plenty...
