        • Older travelers

          The location, ocean view and belcony

          The extra $25.00 a day fee that we were not told about ahead of time.

        • Older travelers

          Beautiful hotel but quite pricey

          The $25.00 a day the hotel charged in addition to the room rate. I thought that was a little cheesy.

        • Older travelers

          Location is fabulous. We have not been to Bar Harbor for several years but love it.

          Our room was not much for a view etc. We booked online and didn't understand the options. It would have been nice to have been told about room options when we checked in.

        • Older travelers

          It was clean, staff was very helpful.

          I got a great deal from Booked.net but my final bill was much more than agreed upon. There were service fees and other fees for everyday we stayed making the total more than I expected. Next time I will comfirm with hotel for the correct amount.

        • Older travelers

          I loved all the options from an outdoor pool to being on the ocean. We are avid paddlers and hikers-so found the location for both activities remarkable. We also thought that the restaurant was fairly priced and the menue was superb!

          We would make sure that we did not stay in room 1018. There was some type of generator that went on in the middle of the night,and we were not able to sleep well. The room itself was spotless and well designed. We wd. Also request anything but overlooking the parking lot next time- not very private. However, there are many cafe to have early am coffee that we took advantage of.

          beautiful pool although the water was not really clean. The location is the best in town.

          The money spent for a backyard view room is absolutely not worth.

          -location -excellent service

          -the daily resort fee of $25 as I was not aware of it at the time of the booking

        • Older travelers

          We paid and reserved a standard room and after asking for a room change was changed the next day to a higher priced room without charge...the first room was basically in the parking lot and the second room had an amazing top floor view of the marina and pool.

          Beautiful location/lovely room/staff pleasant and helpful. Restaurant was also very good. Would definitely stay again. Not inexpensive but not over the top either.

          Location was great. You can park your and walk to everything.

          Requested a water view - almost every room has "some" kind of water view, you don't need to pay extra for it.

          The elegance and setting of the resort was lovely. The landscaping was beautiful and the rooms were inviting and clean. I appreciated the laundry service with complimentary detergent. I really liked the workout rooms and the hoist equipment too. We didn't get to enjoy the tennis courts but I was impressed with those as well.

          My room key wouldn't work in all the doors sometimes and I was forced to take the long way around the grounds to get into my room. I was also upset with the young lady at the fitness center who made my daughter feel unwelcome by stating she needed to be seventeen or older to use the facility. Even though she looks young for her age , she shouldn't have treated her that way, especially with her mother present.

        • Family with children

          Very nice room, conveniently located within downtown parking. Very nice bathroom with tub and separate shower area. We appreciated the refrigerator. The front desk staff was excellent. There was a problem with locating our reservation, but when we showed the confirmation, they fixed everything right away.

          The room was dark; inadequate lighting. We are a family that likes to read before retiring in the evening and there were not enough lamps for everyone to do so comfortably.

          3Rd visit..best location--much better than where the President chose to stay..in his trip to Bar Harbor..great location park the car and walk to restaurants if not dining within. Friendly staff as always -ocean location a big plus. Beds are extremely comfortable and very clean--I will stay there again or in their new hotel directly across the street with more dining services- Italian and Irish with sidewalk cafes.

          Love this hotel..but more attention to prior guests as old key card in the room in a bathrobe pocket--and air conditioner within room was apart but popped it back together--perhaps a quick inspection of all rooms by a service manager?

          Great location - righght on the waterfront. Room was nice - Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, clean and well stocked with toiletries. Pretty good fitness center. Good restaurant. Friendly staff.

          The room decor/colors were ugly and the rug was stained. It was a bit loud - right next to the Bar Harbor Club where there was a function with a band/DJ. Our room face the parking lot so a fair amount of pedestrian/car noise.
