Fantastic room for the price granted this was before Memorial Day, so the crowds have not arrived yet. Quality of room furnishing was well above the standard chain hotel decor. The seating area with gas fireplace was an unexpected but welcome feature. Comfortable deck with excellent ocean view.

Great view

Cons: The rooms could be updated.
Location: The location is great. You are not far from Acadia or down town Bar Harbor.
The hotel has an amazing view of the ocean. The room was very comfy and as expected. They staff was very friendly and helpful. They made sure to provide you with maps of the area and help with trails if needed. I would stay here again anytime.

Hotel near Bar Harbor

Pros: I answered this question at the beginning of the survey.
Cons: How about a better location for an elevator?
Location: Bar Harbor shops and the national park.
Earlier in this survey the same questions were asked and I answered them. I find answering the same questions twice irritating.

Not bad...

Decent hotel. Nice pool and sauna. 5 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor. If you're a smoker this is not the hotel for you. Even with a private balcony, you can't smoke. The hotel manager was very stern while talking to me about this at check-in. I felt like a criminal.

Hotel staff was very welcoming and accommodating!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking Frenchman Bay. The beds were extremely comfortable. There was entertainment in the lounge both nights we were there. The Looking Glass restaurant was superb. They even offered to drive us to the restaurant which was up the hill from the hotel. Views from both the room and restaurant were fantastic. The pools and fitness center were very nice. Can't wait to go back!
