Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Thin walls, poor internet, petty management, nice staff
The rooms were clean, and the maids were very nice and efficient, as were most of the staff.
However, the internet barely worked, the phones dropped calls all the time, and the walls allowed us to hear ALL of the activity in the next room very clearly (so I assume they could hear us also).
Loud pool parties were permitted right below our room after 1 a.m., despite the in-room literature saying pool closed at 11 pm.
No medicines were available, and when a helpful staffer offered me an antacid from the first-aid kit, a management type took it out of my hands, explaining his fear of a lawsuit if there was a bad reaction to -- an antacid! I drove to the next hotel, explained my situation, and got a sleeve of Pepto-Bismol for free.
Bottom line: there's way better hotel values available in Bar Harbor, probably places that put your comfort ahead of their unreasonable liability fears -- and Acadia is awesome!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulofConnecticut Relaxing with great views at sunset
We visited Arcadia and Bar Harbor for our anniversary so we booked this HI property. When we arrived the staff informed us that we were upgraded to a partial ocean view room which was very nice. The atmosphere was great, it was quiet even though the property was filled with guests. We watched the lobster boat harvest their traps in the morning from our balcony. The bed was comfortable and room AC worked well.
The only negative was our door in the room was very heavy and hard to open

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kjh17 Extremely Clean and comfortable
View was very pleasant, looking out at Bar Harbor. Room was very clean and roomy. Small frig and safe provided in room. Lighting in bathroom was best ever in any hotel I've ever stayed in. Temperature in room was perfect (in late June). Access to small balcony outside of room on Harbor side was nice extra feature. Front desk personnel were very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMcKinley Holiday Inn Resort is five stars!!
Being from Seattle, Washington, we didn't think any place could compare to that but we were wrong. Bar Harbor is amazing. The Holiday Inn Resort at Acadia National Park was was like staying at home but with all the amenities. The beauty of the pool overlooking the water, the restaurants with the best views possible, and a room with views of all that. The food at the Lobster Bar was our favorite. The staff in the parts of the Inn were fantastic. Everyone seemed to love their jobs and it showed in their kindness to customers. Thank you for a wonderful time spent in your beautiful state and at your fantastic hotel and park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UPStechME Nice location - Beautiful grounds
We recently stayed 2 nights at the Bar Harbor Regency / Holiday Inn. When we first arrived, we were promptly greeted and welcomed by the doorman who brought all of our things to our room, which you could tell had recently been updated. The front desk staff was pleasant and knowledgable. We enjoyed some time by the pool and had some great cocktails at the Tiki Bar (although a little pricey, everything was delicious). We had dinner that night at Stewman's Lobster Pound on site, and the lobster roll was very generous compared to other places. The grounds at the hotel are meticulously maintained. Breakfast in La Bella Vita was nice. The waitstaff were very friendly. The resort is centrally located between downtown Bar Harbor and the Hull's Cove entrance to Acadia National Park. Easy to get to with public transportation, your own vehicle, or on a bicycle if you so choose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lizwim great experience
Loved our stay at this hotel, everything was well taken care off. Beautiful gardens with heated pool and hot-tub
The lobby is classy and the food in the restaurant is really good. you cannot skip their breakfast buffet!
This is one of the few hotel that really has comfortable beds, mostly I wake up with sore hips and painful shoulders, not here! We are planning to go back to this area more often and our stay will definitely be at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spobow Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff
We had a wonderful stay at the resort as we visited Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The staff genuinely made us feel special, from the front desk to restaurant and bar staff to housekeeping. Would definitely recommend this resort to anyone visiting Bar Harbor. I only wish I could have stayed longer.
