Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoveAcadia Excellent Location
We liked the location of hotel and the property in general.
We got a room next to dumpster, when we asked the front desk staff to change the room they offered to change it the next day. But we did not bother because we were anyway out of the hotel, exploring Acadia during most part of our stay, so it did not matter much. But I would say, room was okay, not very good.
We loved the breakfast buffet and view from restaurant. We will definitely stay at this property next time we visit Acadia but will make sure to book "Ocean View" room.
Also, the shuttle service is very convenient.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tricia31 Great view would come again
I would highly recommend spending extra for the ocean view. The view out the back and by the pool is amazing. We had purchased the breakfast package which I would not recommend. We purchased it based on other recommendations viewed on this site but the over all service and quality of the food and coffee was very poor not worth 15.95.
I would also recommend not using the facility for dinner, again the overall service from the wait staff was very poor and the food was ok but not worth the price. The Harbor Bay in town which is affiliated is much better.
I would recommend coming again as the view and pool side view was amazing and it is away from the busy down town but close enough that you can visit it quickly.

Holiday Inn Bar Harbor is very conveniently located. About 5 minutes from the town and 5 minutes from the entrance to Arcadia Park.
Staff is very pleasant and accommodating. The grounds are very laid back with beautiful views.
One wish or suggestions I would provide to the hotel is - since the evenings are so beautiful from the weather temperature standpoint, it would be great to sleep with windows and balcony doors openned instead of the AC - however, because there are not sliding nets on the windows or doors, its hard to keep mosquitos out.
Otherwise, pleasantly surprised and would stay there again,
