Very nice. Wish we could have spent more time at the hotel. When you book a room be sure to ask for a room in the main hotel. They also have an adjoining part of the hotel behind the main hotel which is slightly less desirable.

Wife and I stayed here because we wanted a great view. Yes, we had read about the outdated rooms and the need for some serious deep cleaning, but from the information we saw, we though the views would compensate. We were wrong. The glaring issues is that the view is out the window where you enter. So if the curtains are open to enjoy the view,… Read more
Wife and I stayed here because we wanted a great view. Yes, we had read about the outdated rooms and the need for some serious deep cleaning, but from the information we saw, we though the views would compensate. We were wrong. The glaring issues is that the view is out the window where you enter. So if the curtains are open to enjoy the view, then everyone walking by also has a view of you in your room. Pic # 1 is the view. Pic # 2 is what you actually have if you don’t want folk looking in your room. For the price, I can only give a 2. And yes, the breakfast is very basic. Read less

This was our 3rd hotel in our pre paid New England trip. It was easily positioned for all to do. Bar Harbour turn itself was great lots of shops and whale watching trips if needed. It was something I definitely wanted to do but I think it was still out of season to guarantee a sighting. Would def recommend to visit there especially if you are a… Read more

It was something I definitely wanted to do but I think it was still out of season to guarantee a sighting. Would def recommend to visit there especially if you are a petrol head like me as it was the Corvette convention and must have been over 80 corvettes of all ages ......awesome Read less

What a truly lovely, charming place! Our room was huge, had a king sized bed with five pillows, large sitting area with artificial fireplace, recliner that gave massages, desk and chair, bureau, large wallscreen TV, air conditioning, microwave and keurig, large double sink area and private toilet and shower..... and a sitting balcony with a nice view. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. The elevator is large and fast. Reception has a small sitting area, the staff was always friendly and helpful. There is a recessed lounge area that is very nice for sitting with friends or just enjoying the excellent piano player at night. Excellent facility all around although restaurant falls a bit short. (See separate review.) Would love to return. Read less
