What stood out to me most about Bluenose was the lack of professionalism the staff showed when a fire alarm went off in the middle of the night (approximately 1am). No staff was on-site when it initially went off and all guests - many of whom were senior citizens - were left outside in the cold without any update on what's going on. The bare… Read more
What stood out to me most about Bluenose was the lack of professionalism the staff showed when a fire alarm went off in the middle of the night (approximately 1am). No staff was on-site when it initially went off and all guests - many of whom were senior citizens - were left outside in the cold without any update on what's going on. The bare minimum I expected was to have an employee announce that "We're looking into it, most likely a false alarm, thank you for your patience". There was zero communication. A real disappointment for a property that received a 4-star rating. I don't recommend staying here. Read less

The Bluenose Inn is a beautiful lodging place to stay. It was our first time and we were impressed by its amenities. Unfortunately, we personally felt uncomfortable and out of place. We were given a room at the far end of the corridor (away from it all), the gentleman at check in seemed uneasy by our presence and when we attended the Piano event, other guests demonstrated their dislikes (dirty looks, ugly comments and just plain racist demeanor). Fortunately, the bar tender and pianist where pretty friendly and accommodating. Since we’re frequent travelers and stayed at other hotels of this caliber and better, we were surprised and saddened by how out of place we felt. Changes need to be made to make everyone feel welcome. Read less

We had a wonderful stay at the Bluenose Inn. The staff went out of their way to make this a memorable experience. We loved the Inn, the location and the magic of Bar Harbor. We will be back and recommend our family and friends to stay here.
