Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Diane L. Room Charges
I would have given my review a better rating, but I had a signficiant problem with my room bill. I paid cash upon arrival for my whole stay, but someone put a hold on my credit card for every night. This caused a large hold on my credit card, thus reducing my available credit significantly for any other purchases throughout my stay. It took two days and many many calls to straighten it out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xs2alex Its a good place to stay.
The location and the scenic view from the ocean view room was really great. Overall it was a good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VeeTee Awesome view, great location, slept great
SO close to Acadia National Park. I had brought my bike with me and biked right over.
So much to do in the area - it would've been nice to have had the time to stay another day or two. The folks at the front desk were very friendly and helped me figure out things to do. As an aside: the roses in Bar Harbor smell SO nice!
I used points to stay, so maybe others would rate the "value" differently.
I described to the bartender what I was feeling and he made the perfect drink - it's weird to say, but I felt understood ;)
There isn't a spa at this location - but there is apparently one at a nearby sister location.
I didn't realize Bar Harbor doesn't have many beaches - there's no beach, here. But there IS a pier you can walk a little out on and it had a neat view. The one day, there were folks learning to kayak or something - it was fun to watch.
They have a nice-looking pool, but I didn't swim in it, so I can't comment on that aspect - but it's next to the ocean so I did sit there one morning to read a book: that was nice and relaxing.
