Rooms were very clean and bigger than expected, with individual window units. The staff was very helpful, full of good information on local hikes. Very comfy beds/pillows, great water pressure and deep bathtub with lots of hot water!!

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Rebecca B ! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. There is nothing like a comfortable bed / pillow and a deep bathtub that has lots of hot water when on a vacation! We hope to see you again soon! best wishes, Acadia Jane

Friendly front desk staff. Room had new carpet and was updated modern furniture. Has free continental breakfast and drinks. Clean bathroom. Has pool with deck chairs and tables. Playground for kids. Neighbors in next room were loud. Could hear people outside late at night. Nice hotel except for the noise.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your stay and this review. I apologize for the noisy neighbors! Please, at any hotel call the front desk to complain. No matter the hotel, they will address the noise level with the offending guests immediately. We are so happy that you enjoyed the new renovations and amenities we offer. best wishes, Jane

Clean, well maintained motel near the National Park and very convenient to the village of Bar Harbor and everything nearby. Staff was really helpful. Has a breakfast (very basic but more than enough).

Thank you Harris t for your stay and review! We do hope you will stay with us again when in this area. Best wishes, Jane

04/07/2018

On a major thoroughfare, close enough to Acadia NP but away from the crowds. Lovely grounds, very nice heated outdoor pool with umbrella covered tables and lounge chairs. With your door closed you cannot hear traffic noise??., Spacious room, clean, comfy bed and pillows. Pool towels in room. Our bathroom sink wasn't draining very well so we alerted the front desk. It was fixed in under 30 minutes??!!! Every afternoon there are fresh baked cookies: PB, oatmeal (my favorite) and chocolate chip (to die for my husband says). Laundry facilities on site; clean, efficient and affordable. Other amenities include playground, sandbox, picnic tables and grills. Excellent breakfast. Cannot go wrong here!!!

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much edieann for such a sweet review! I wish there were more than 5 stars today,too!! (smile) We are in a serene location and have lots of green spaces. We are happy that you appreciated all of that! Please stay with us again whenever you are in the area! Warm regards, Jane

"OK overnight stay"

3
30/06/2018

This Inn resembles a motel. We parked our car in front of the room which was close to end of the motel Room was comfortable. The Inn is located away from downtown so that you need to drive to any restaurants and shops. Inn does serve breakfast, which, while nothing memorable, was OK. From what we saw in the area, this is probably a good value. There were some major road repairs going on in area when we were there. The repairs were not directly by the Inn, but made getting back and forth between it and the Acadia Park a little tricky.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your stay and this review. Our hotel is located 4 1/2 miles from the downtown waterfront. Thankfully the construction is not near us but there is a one way coming back for everyone on Rt 3 and it takes you through a beautiful portion of the park called "Park Loop Road". The views are exhilarating! That to the entrance to the park and two miles from us. We would love to hear your suggestions on our breakfast. The menu does change daily and repeats every three days. Some days we offer bacon, or any of three types of sausage, always some type of egg, make your own waffles, fresh fruit, sweet rolls, an oatmeal station with a variety of toppings, and lots of cereals and juices. Even corned beef hash and sausage gravy and biscuits some days. We are always open to suggestions to improve it.

This hotel is reasonably priced and actually quite nice. The staff provided so much vital information when we checked in - very congenial and accommodating. The room appeared to have been recently updated, bathroom huge and very nice. The cleaning staff did a great job. Breakfast was the typical microwaved food, but convenient and a hot meal before starting the day. Not usually a Best Western fan, but the massive number of positive reviews convinced me to book and we were not disappointed.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
It is wonderful to know we met your expectations! Thank you for your awesome review and we look forward to your return! Best wishes, Jane

"Six night stay"

20/06/2018

We could. It have done better. Close proximity to Acadia National Park and only 3 miles to Bar Harbor. The room was very large . It was very clean and the bed was great. The folks at the front desk were great. Our refrigerator was not working and it was replaced promptly the next day. Very quiet and peaceful during the day and at night.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Don for staying with us for six nights! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found us to be clean, comfortable and quiet! We look forward to your next visit! warm wishes, Jane

"Great motel with a private "back yard""

5
18/06/2018

I stayed here recently on a midweek whirlwind trip to Acadia. Check in was quick and efficient, fresh cookies and coffee are waiting in the lobby. It was a dreary, wet day and a cheery fire was in the fireplace. The rooms are located in several adjacent buildings in the compound. Our room was clean, tidy, and welcoming. The interesting thing about this hotel is that they have a private "back yard" with a large grassy yard, playground for kids, and comfortable outdoor chairs for the adults. Nice touch! The complimentary breakfast had numerous hot and cold choices. My only complaint, the coffee comes from a push button machine and is awful......... Please, make provide real coffee (like you have in the lobby).

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Dear Deepwoods Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Our serene setting is away from construction and just a couple of miles to the Acadia National Park and visitors center. We do have plenty of green spaces to relax in for sure. We are happy you found them enjoyable. I agree that our lobby coffee is awesome!! The new one we have in our breakfast is desirable to many because you can choose your strength! We would love to have you back with us again and we hope that is possible. best wishes, Acadia Jane

Room was clean & looked remodeled. Nice breakfast spread. Located on the main highway into Bar Harbor & Acadia national park. Check in & check out were quick. Staff was friendly at front desk & at breakfast. We will stay here again when we return to the area.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Paul M, it is always wonderful to hear that one of our guests will stay again when back in the area. We have remodeled all of our rooms and this fall we will be working on our exterior. We are very excited to show it off next spring! Thank you for your stay and this wonderful review! Best wishes, Acadia Jane

"Surpasses expectations!"

01/06/2018

I chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and couldn't be happier! We stayed for 3 nights with my husband and 2 kids. The staff is friendly, accommodating, treat the guests like family. The room we stayed in seemed updated and very clean! The breakfast was great. The pool heated to 82 degrees allowing our 9 year old to comfortably swim while it was in the mid-50s outside. The playground was great to keep the kids occupied. The location is conveneint for visits to both Acadia and bar harbor. My husband, our kids and I truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone visiting the Acadia region with kids!

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
To have surpassed a guest's expectations is a dream come true! Thank you very much for your stay and we sure are happy that you all enjoyed and used the pool and playground, too. We look forward to your next stay! Mid-June we start our evening S'More's at the fir pit! Best wishes, Jane

Stayed 3 nights while visiting Acadia NP. Convenient to the park. Nice room. Nice breakfast. All buildings are one floor and you could park directly in front of your room door which was hugely convenient. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

26/05/2018

This motel was recently renovated, we stayed in a very nice and good sized room. Bed was very comfortable, nice to have a fridge and microwave. Breakfast was excellent, hot dishes varied some, but with some kind of eggs, meat, potatoes, vegetarian beans one morning, fruit, cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, breads. Gluten free bread and blueberry muffins on request, also the staff could look up other items on the buffet to check ingredients.Everyone was nice and helpful.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Lauren, We sincerely appreciate your staying with us and for this wonderful review. We do try to accommodate our guests with their specialty food needs. This fall once we close for the season, we begin exterior renovations. We hope you will come back and stay with us once again. Warm regards, Jane

"Great value and great location"

5
21/05/2018

Stayed for multiple nights in the spring in a single king bed room and was overall very pleased with the stay. Room: The room was overall very clean, and the staff did a great job during the day when we were gone. Coming home to a refreshed and clean room was appreciated. Microwave and fridge in the room allowed us to also save a bit on meals. The bathroom was bright and spacious. Only consideration is the bathroom door which was on a sliding rail and does not latch. It leaves about a 0.5 to 1 inch gap between the wall and the door which leaves some privacy to be desired. This was not an issues as my travel partner and I are close but this is something to be considered for others. TV had lots of channels and there is also a safe in the room. Property: The property is very nice and tends to be quiet. The building we were in was set back from the road quite a bit and we never had any issues with outside noise. The lobby building was welcoming and they had cookies, coffee, and tea every afternoon for guests. Ice and vending machines are also located throughout. Location: Right on route 3, about 5-10 minute drive from Acadia NP entrance and downtown bar harbor. When we visited, there was construction on route 3 which turned a portion of the highway into one way traffic. We didn't know it when we booked but this place was before all the construction so we didn't have to deal with the detours. We passed by other places we had considered and were happy we didn't choose those. Breakfast: Great variety with a rotating option of breakfast meat, eggs, and usually potatoes. Waffle makers everyday with lots of toppings. A variety of pastries, breads, muffins, and bagels. Fruit, yogurt, and granola too! And it's all free and included with the room. Overall a wonderful way to start the day. They do have some gluten free options. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and the spring rate proved to be a great value that beat out most other nearby options including Airbnbs. I would definitely recommend to others.

20/05/2018

Stayed here one night for a visit to MDI, wish we had booked longer. Our room was very comfortable, well decorated, and the beds are extremely comfortable. Very clean and the bathroom is huge, love the sliding barn door, nice touch, the only thing we noticed was there was no handle or hasp on the door, but it was minor compared to how well decorated the rooms are. We had a tasty breakfast with great, hot coffee, I mean very hot, be careful, but some of the best hotel coffee we've had. The selection and quality of the food offered was excellent and the staff super friendly and polite. Anyone who chooses to stay here would think they were staying in a much higher price point hotel. The property was very well maintained and this location will be at the top of our list for future visits.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We are all very pleased that will are at the top of your list for lodging when returning to the Bar Harbor area! Thank you very much for such a nice review and awesome score. Best wishes , Jane

"An excellent value in a great location"

18/05/2018

The motel is conveniently located on Mount Desert Island along the main highway to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The buildings are older, but the rooms have been remodeled, are up to date, air conditioned, and very comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast food selection was excellent. The only thing it does not have is an ocean view, but many opportunities for sightseeing, boating, hiking, shopping and dining are only a few miles away. Overall, an excellent value for the location.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
BillH Thank you for such a great review! We are very happy to have all of our rooms now renovated and this fall we will begin on the exterior renovations & lobby. We do hope you will come back again and see what we have done. Best wishes for a great rest of 2018! Jane

"A DIAMOND IN BAR HARBOR"

17/05/2018

My wife and I stayed for two nights at this property. We were very pleasantly surprised. By every metric, this hotel excelled. This is an old style motel layout, with several rows of rooms over a fairly large property. The grounds and building are immaculate. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large, clean and well equipped. The king bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet (except for some air conditioner noise). Parking was ample and internet was flawless. There is a large, purpose built breakfast room that is clean and very well maintained. There is a very good selection of items. Everyone that works at this property obviously cares. It is about 2 miles from Bar Harbor, with good access to the park and townsite. I would recommend this property for couples or families without reservation!! An excellent choice!!

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We are very pleased that you found The Best Western Acadia Park Inn to be an "excellent choice!!" Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We do hope you will stay with us again when in the Bar Harbor area! Regards, Jane

The staff were extremely friendly. clean room, comfy bed. The breakfast selection was awesome. Minus one star because of the thin wall. My neighbor was watching TV at 4:30 AM and it was super loud. It finally stopped when he went out at 6:30. Then the neighbor on the other side left their phone in the room. The alarm went off for an entire hour. I didn't sleep well at all.

Once or twice a year I come up from southern Maine and my friend comes down from New Brunswick to hike in Acadia National Park for two days. For the fourth time we stayed at the Acadia Park Inn. Rooms are clean. The TV remote is simple to use. Room enough to play Scrabble with my friend. And the breakfast! Let me start with the amazing oatmeal with raisins and walnuts. So good, I had a second bowl. Then mini-home fries patties that were stand along good by themselves.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
First let us thank you for your loyalty! We are delighted that you enjoy your stay enough to make the Best Western Acadia Park Inn your vacation getaway. We really appreciate your kind remarks and we look forward to your next stay with us! Best wishes, Acadia Jane

The property looks ordinary from the road, but the lobby, rooms, and breakfast area are very nice. Helpful staff at the front desk and a pleasant lobby that's actually inviting to hang out in (plus home baked cookies!). Not sure why the breakfast is labeled

Property condition is pristine. We stayed in late April which is just prior to the season start. There were only a few rooms occupied. We are exceptionally happy with the Kitchen. Although breakfast food selection is standard for a motel; provisions were generous. We notice the kitchen lady staff pay extra attention to ensure a clean environment. She was literally using scotch tape to clean up any sign of dust in the cutlery dispensers! Hats off to the staffs.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We love to have our property condition labeled "pristine"! We do try very hard to keep everything clean and fresh. So happy you enjoyed breakfast and I did get a chuckle our of the scotch tape trick. Whatever it takes! Thank you ! Best wishes, Jane

"Overall good but a couple of issues"

26/04/2018

All of the staff that we met at this hotel were extremely welcoming, helpful and efficient. The room was nicely decorated / furnished however the door to the bathroom was an external sliding door which did not provide the same privacy as a normal door would. The bathroom and bedroom surfaces were clean. We had a room with two beds and they seemed to have very different mattresses - one soft, one firm. There was a brown stain on one sheet and one of the beds had some small hairs, but the sheets did look fresh. The pillows could have been better. We heard quite a bit of noise from the parking lot and the road. The breakfast was extremely generous and everything pristine however it would have been nice (and healthy) to have fresh fruit for the oatmeal instead of fruit in thick syrup.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your stay and your review. Our beds are new and now I am curious why they seemed to be different in their firmness. We do apologize for the stained sheet. We definitely try to weed out any with stains. Our pillows are Best Western brand and required. We do however, keep some 50/50 feather and down for those that prefer something else. We do offer fresh fruit. Our apologizes that you did not see that. We are finishing-up the remodeling in a few rooms and evidently you were next to some. We am very sorry for the noise. Generally we do not have any issues with road or vehicle noises. Please come back and stay again, we would love to make your next stay a 5. Best wishes, Jane

The location is perfect- minutes from Acadia park and downtown Bar Habor. The staff is very friendly and gave us great recommendations for scenic driving and picture locations! There were even fresh baked cookies out when we checked in :) (which were delicious) The beds were incredibly comfortable. With the remodeled rooms it felt as if we were staying in a quaint little cottage. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends!

There in no full service restaurant on property, but the breakfast room was large, clean, and offered a wide variety of breakfast items. Rooms are all outside access, but noise was not an issue. The outdoor pool was pristine, and the onsite laundry facilities were welcomed toward the end of our stay. An EXCELLENT value! I would definitely return!

"Excellent Hotel"

22/01/2018

We stayed at The Best Western Acadia Park Inn at Mount Desert Island, Maine in late June, 2017. The rooms had been newly renovated and are very comfortable, beautiful, spacious, clean, with an awesome bathroom complete with a nightlight feature. The layout of the property is barrack style, so you park your car in close proximity to your room. No steps to navigate other than on onto the sidewalk. Back your car into your parking spot and your suitcase is practically at your door. No noise from the room upstairs, since everything is ground level. It reminded me of what it must be like to be away "at camp". Our room faced a beautifully landscaped area with a playground, fire pit, and comfy wooden chairs for outdoor relaxation. Their pool is well maintained and looks pristine. The weather was a tad chilly for me, but next trip, I'll take a dip! The breakfast room is staffed up and the employees are on the job in every way. They anticipate your needs, clearing and wiping down tables as people leave, and are very hospitable. They replenish the food seamlessly. Delicious coffee! Oh, and beans...baked beans, a traditional food in Maine, make an appearance at breakfast. There's a first time for everything, including eggs and beans! Lots of cereal options, oatmeal, hot entrees, fruit, yogurt. If you need gluten free, they're ready for you! Just talk to the gals working there and...voila! This Best Western is the BEST! This was our first trip to Acadia, and we are planning to return in summer of 2018. We'll definitely book here again!

We enjoyed our stay at Bar Harbor Best Western. It is close to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. We had been away for over a week and were pleased that the laundry facilities (new and clean) were near our room, so we could do laundry in the evening. Staff went out of their way to find us an extension cord so that we could plug our camera's battery charger (which we'd forgotten to charge) into the car outlet, when we left our first morning to sightsee and take pictures.

"Second visit just as great as the first"

5
02/11/2017

This was the second time I have stayed at the Best Western Acadia and my opinion has not changed – this is a fantastic place and a wonderful place to stay. There is plenty of parking on-site, and I still like the fact that it is not in Bar Harbor itself so it is nice and quiet (yet only a quick drive to Acadia NP or Bar Harbor). Because they were doing road-works on Route 3, the reception staff provided a map of the detour required to return to the property when coming from Bar Harbor/Acadia. The (included) breakfast is amazing, and a great way to start a morning before a busy and long day of hiking in Acadia. Highlights remain the DIY waffles, but the hot food changed each day and included eggs, bacon, sausages or hash brown among other things. There are several cereal options, yoghurt and fresh fruit also. Other facilities at the property include swimming pool, ice machines, laundry, and vending machines for drinks/snacks. Don't forget the free cookies in reception! Reception staff are super friendly and helpful. Free wifi! The room was spacious so there was plenty of space to spread out maps and luggage items. There was a desk and chair as well as an arm chair with a sofa component. The bathroom has a huge storage area for clothes (great for airing and drying after hiking), although it was a little weird to stand on carpet when using the sink. I liked how they actually followed their green/environmentally friendly policy by NOT replacing towels that were hung up on rails daily. (I often find many hotels have these policies but still insist on replacing all the towels daily). Other features; ironing board, mini fridge, tea/coffee making facilities in the room. As wish my previous visit, this was an easy 5/5 for me and if I find myself back in Acadia NP, I'll make it a third time staying here!

The other lady at the front desk was definately NOT having a good evening!

Best Western Acadia in Bar Harbor Maine is just exceptional having recently undergone quite a renovation. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the baths luxurious. Clean smart décor with comfy pillow top beds and crispy linens. Bravo, it was always a good place but now it is quite outstanding.

we stayed here prior to driving into the Acadia National Park. the hotel was nice, had good coffee, and the next morning had a fine breakfast for everyone. beds were good along with a nice room and bath facilities. big room at a reasonable price. had a couch and chair in the room. good location.

one of the most consistent BW. Over the years I visited Bar Harbor for business, always staying 1 night, this BW is the most reliable in regards to quality, appearance. Public spaces and room amenities are always updated. Congratulations to the owners, I love to see when part of the room night funds are reinvested into keeping the property of high BW quality

Best Western Clean just few miles from the harbor heated pool and breakfast close to a lot of places to eat. The park is out standing when up on Cadillac Mt. you get a beautiful view of the harbor. If you like to hike they have good trales

18/10/2017

Nice park-like location, extra large room for a chain motel, reasonable rate, good breakfast. Only problem we had was the strange bathroom door which was attached to some kind of sliding bar and impossible to completely close. Don't know if it was temporary or permanent.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We have remodeled our guest rooms and added the barn door to the bathrooms as a swinging door would not work in the space allowed. The pocket style is not approved by Best Western. I apologize for the issues you had and thank you for the comments. As we learn more about them, we try to improve their functionality. Thank you for the feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay otherwise. We hope to see you next year! Best wishes, Jane

Overall very good stay experience. Would definitely stay here again on my trip to bar harbor. Room was big with high ceilings, one floor only, donno disturbance from top. Breakfast was superb, staff was superb. Problem with wifi connection but on ur trip to bar harbor, you probably won't care.

Thank you very much for your review. We are happy to know you will return to us for your lodging needs next time you are here in the Bar Harbor area.

"Don't understand the other reviews — lipstick on a pig here"

16/10/2017

If what you want is an old fashioned property to stay at that has rooms renovated somewhat, then maybe this place is for you. It wasn't for us. The place is a MOTEL — park in front of your room. The room, although renovated somewhat, smelled and seemed damp. The separate room for bathtub and toilet was extremely small. Furniture seemed old. Could hear every noise from road, other motel guests outside, every car door closing and every sound from the next room. They seem to keep up the property well and the breakfast was decent, but this whole place was merely lipstick on a pig! I prefer newer places with good furnishings and clean.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
I apologize for your unhappiness with your stay. We take pride in our cleanliness and have won awards for it. We are definitely not a Best Western Plus or Premier. We are a Core property that fits in with the local décor as far as renovated "motels" go. We are happy to say we are in the top 20% nationwide. Our renovations continue this fall into spring and all of our rooms will be completely new. We have sister properties that may suit your needs and wants better and we would be happy to suggest one for your next stay. Thank you. best wishes, Jane

11/10/2017

Clean, comfy bed, friendly people! A great location for the park and Bar Harbor. The detour is probably more inconvenient for the staff explaining the detour 50 times a day than the guests driving it! It's really not a big deal! The facility could use a few updates, but we visited at the very end of the season, before improvement season. This facility is very family friendly-we had other places we had to be but otherwise would have attended the evening events happening there. They have a lovely kid's & family area outdoors with grills, kid's stuff, chairs & a fire pit. The breakfast buffet area is equal to some restaurants I've visited and has a nice variety of selections. The safe in our room was different than a lot-our wider laptop actually fit inside! The attention to detail shows and that makes a difference. Hint-if you're in the lobby in the afternoon when the cookies are out...eat one! They are really yummy!

"Nice property, nice staff and most of all, nice and quiet"

11/10/2017

This was really a pleasant surprise. On the outside it appears to be an old-school motel with parking at your door. However, my wife and our son and I found our room to be completely updated with new carpet, furnishings and bed - just like a new hotel. The free breakfast is in an attractive separate building with a good selection of food. The staff were professional and very helpful. The property is spread out next to a forest which means it is very quiet which I greatly appreciated as I am a light sleeper. Although it is several miles into the town of Bar Harbor, I think it is actually a positive. The Bar Harbor town center is a bit of a zoo and I suspect that hotels there would be noisier and a lot more expensive. This was a great choice.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We are so happy that you tried staying at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn! Our serene location does set us apart for those in town and our breakfast is deluxe with several hot items included and is free with your stay.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and we thank you for that and this wonderful review! warm wishes, Jane

04/10/2017

I can't believe this place. Made reservations months ago and when I had to cancel they would not refund my money saying it was a nonrefundable booking. Ok but in talking to the people they very blasé about taking my money for nothing. Said just accept it as a life lesson! And I know that months in advance they were sure to rebook the rooms. Beware!

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
I apologize for your confusion with reserving with a third party. The one you chose offers a special rate and it was non-refundable. If you book directly with us or through Best Western.com, you would not have any issue canceling within 48 hours of arrival. No one here would tell you it was a life lesson. That would be rude. I have asked that this be removed. It is not accurate to our property.

"Outstanding Value"

04/10/2017

This was the BEST Best Western experience that I have ever had. It was an outstanding value for our 5 night stay. Our room was a king bed (not a suite) and the bedroom and bathroom were very spacious, modern, and comfortable. We were extremely pleased with the layout of the hotel which consisted of several one story buildings with parking directly in front of our unit. Each building was a few minutes walk from the hotel lobby and breakfast room. Our experiences with all hotel staff and services were excellent. The location is about 15 minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park which was our daily destination. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to the island's free shuttle service that travels Acadia Park and Mt. Desert Island. We took the shuttle to Bar Harbor to avoid dealing with parking there. We had mountain and ocean views inside and outside of the Park and opted not to pay lots of money to have a hotel with a view as well. We decided on this hotel after looking at numerous reviews for several hotels. We were thrilled with our choice and grateful for the reviews that helped us make it.

We stayed for 3 nights. We always try to stay at Best Western when there is one available on our route as we know we will have consistent quality. This Hotel's accommodations were average. The Breakfast however was one of the best complementary breakfasts that we have experienced. The location was convenient for us as it was easy to get to most parts of Mt. Desert Island without having to deal with downtown Bar Harbor congestion. This is not a place to stay if you are looking for a Ocean or Water view from the hotel.

AAA found this hotel for me. It looked a little boxy from the outside, but I didn't care since I had plans pretty tightly scheduled all day, and would be out of the room. I got back to the hotel on my first night there around 7:15. I noticed people gathered out in a grassy field outside my room. So I went to check it out. The hotel sponsors a s'mores bbq every night around a fire pit. They provide everything you need, all you can eat. The kids were running around barefoot on the lawn, the adults were chatting with each other about where we were from. Great time had by all. My room was spotless, the bathroom gorgeous, the bed comfortable! The next morning I decided to check out the "Continental Breakfast!" It is misnamed! It was a full breakfast buffet with all you could possibly want to eat, and delicious! The folks behind the desk in the lobby were helpful, and suggested a sing-a-long in Bar Harbor town square, that was delightful. The swimming pool was just the perfect temp between warm and cool, and the surrounding area was clean, with plenty of tables and chairs. As you float on your back, you look up at the most beautiful canopy of trees gently bustling in the breeze. I had a wonderful time! Give it a try! You won't be sorry!

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
What a wonderful review!! Thank you very much and we are so pleased that you found the S'More's fire pit!

There is also the make- it -yourself waffle station with various possible toppings. We are so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you and please do come again! Best wishes, Jane

We stayed at the Acadia Park Inn for two nights this month. It's a spread-out motel-type establishment with all single-story buildings with outside doors. Parking was ample, the room was nicely furnished and clean with plenty of towels, etc. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, with many recommendations for restaurants, activities, etc. Delicious coffee, tea and cookies are provided in the check-in area all day long. The hotel is located a couple of miles outside of Bar Harbor along a quiet highway. While it isn't as close to town as many other hotels, it also doesn't have to put up with all the noise and traffic of town.

The full breakfast has many options and was always delicious. Room was always clean and the beds were perfect. Reception desk was friendly and helpful, their recommendations for dining and parking were spot on. Affordable prices, I felt this was well worth every penny. HIGHLY recommended for your stay.

07/09/2017

We stayed for 4 nights at this Best Western. It is on a very nice property and easy access to Acadia and 12 minute ride to Bar Harbor. The price was reasonable for this area as hotels tend to be very expensive. The staff was nice enough to upgrade us for a suite. It was nice and roomy. You could tell the bathroom and room were remodeled. Bathroom very large. Nice separate TV area with refrig. The pool area was nice and included a hot breakfast. There were usually eggs and bacon, but could also make your own waffles and had plenty of breads and cold cereals to choose from. There were lots of kids in the breakfast area so could get a little chaotic. The ladies did their best to keep things stocked and keep the chaos minimal. There was enough to get us ready for our day of exploring at Acadia. There was road construction on the way to Bar Harbor. You could get into town but had to take a detour to return. As it turned out the detour did not affect us much, just the hotels that were closer to Bar Harbor. It turns out we made a good choice without even knowing about the construction. Would recommend if visiting Acadia.

28/08/2017

We stayed with a family of 4 in one room. The rooms are of OK size and every comfort (tv, fridge, safe, airco,...) is available. The pool is not that big but as there were only a couple of other people, even on a sunny day, it was large enough. The breakfast area is of limited size. If a lot of couples are occupying bigger tables for 4 or 6 it can be limited. The large map of the world where you can pin where you come from is very sympathetic. We are the Belgian pin. The breakfast itself was of good quality, with enough choice. Our 13 years old son especially liked the waffle iron so he could make his own. We prefer scrambled eggs but on the second day the choice was more of an omelette which clearly was less popular (so why bother). The staff is friendly and effective. Rooms are well cleaned. We liked the late afternoon campfire with 'smores' to get to know someone of the staff (a very friendly young local of maintenance) and other tourists. The town is a ten minute drive away. The fact that we had to do a detour on returning due to roadworks was not that annoying. It could have been if we would have chosen an eating option on the one way to town as you would have to do the same detour to get back. But that's rather a minor problem. The only thing I would try to arrange is asking people with loud vehicles (like a Harley Davidson) to park away from the buildings and certainly not letting their engine run for a long time in the evening or early morning (but you would think that people could think of that by themselves). The rooms are well isolated, so we didn't hear any noise from neighbours but isolating against a loud motorcycle is naturally something else. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful part of the country.

Thank you very much Michael for this lovely review. We are finishing our room renovations over this winter then on to the exterior. We are delighted to know that you would not hesitate to stay again and we look forward to it! Best wishes, Jane

My wife and I enjoyed our stay near Bar Harbor/ Acadia National Park. The exterior of the place (rustic, maybe) did not do justice to the room. Everything was perfect for us. The bed was wonderfully comfortable; the room was clean and fresh smelling; the staff was friendly and very helpful. We want to visit the area again, and stay longer. This hotel will be where we stay!

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Dear Gregory S Thank you for your wonderful review. We are renovating the remaining guest rooms over this fall and winter ... then we will move on to the "rustic" exterior of the buildings. (That would describe it pretty well. ) Thank you for saying that it "does no justice to the interior". We certainly welcome you to stay as long as you can next time! We look forward to it. Warm regards, Jane

"Good hotel...a little pricey"

21/08/2017

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is shaped like a motel meaning that there are separate buildings and you drive up to your room and enter into your room from the outside versus from a hallway. The room was not that big and the bathroom was small. There were a few marks on the walls and some marks around the shower. I also felt like it was expensive for what it is. There is also a charge for a cot..this was the only hotel that has ever charged us for a cot. On the positive side the pool was very nice and clean. The playground and the Adirondack chairs are very nice to have. The laundry facility was easy to use. The breakfast area was clean and the staff working the breakfast area were very helpful and hardworking. And the cookies at check in were a nice touch. It was very convenient to get to Acadia from here.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
I thank you for staying with us an for this review. We do have some rooms that are a little smaller than others and have two queen beds. When you add a cot and it is even smaller. I am pleased that you used the laundry facilities and enjoyed the pool and breakfast which is included with your room rate. The remaining non-renovated rooms will be totally redone over this fall and winter. All of our rooms are outside entry, keeping with the historic ,original building. We hope to see you again! Regards, Jane

Nice location,good access,friendly staff more than adequate breakfast w/ huge seating area. Rooms were large enough w/ standard upscale BW furnishings. Bath area was more than adequate. All in all one of the nicer places I've stayed in. One problem they had bedbugs. In fairness I'm sure they didn't know. I will say they were cooperative,immediately refunded my money. And I have been told they have sanitized the room. Would I stay there again. I'm not sure, I would have to think about it.

The hotel was nice. It had a large grassy area where my grandson was able to kick a soccer ball around and eat a "smores". The pool was nice. The check in staff seemed very "cold". I did not find them very friendly. The hotel is close to Acadia Park and to Bar Harbor. It also is close to a fun miniature golf course.

acadiajane, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
I apologize for the feeling you received from the check-in staff. That is certainly not our norm. We are happy that your grandson enjoyed the evening S'mores and the vast area of green space on which to play. I do hope you will come back and stay with us again. Please know that we truly appreciate your business and your company. Warm wishes, Jane

16/08/2017

We spent just one night at this hotel during a two day trip to Acadia. The price was higher than the national average but reasonable for the area. The room we had was newly renovated and clean and well furnished. Breakfast was excellent and better then most places I have stayed. The staff from the front desk to the kitchen to the housekeepers were all friendly, courteous and went out of their way to be helpful. I would highly recommend this place and will stay there again. It is not luxurious but is clean, well appointed and reasonable priced with a welcoming staff. The hotel location is outside of Bar Harbor a few miles so it isn't walking distance to many places but it fit the bill for us. Easy driving distance to Bar Harbor and Acadia.

This facility was clean and the staff very friendly. The breakfast room was the best! There were many choices...hot or cold. The staff even provided a camp fire in which we made s'mores and talked with other guests. The grounds were nicely groomed . A nice area to sit under the trees and relax. A shuttle bus picks you up and brings you into town...complimentary.. Would definitely recommend.

10/08/2017

This hotel is very different from others I've stayed at. Usually hotels go upwards, but this is a big property with one floor sections so the rooms are pretty big and spacious. the lobby area is nicely decorated and there's coffee and cookies at check in. the staff is very friendly. The rooms are all very different. I know because I came with friends and we had 4 rooms total and none of the rooms are exactly the same, similar but not the same. I like the shower. Good water pressure and a lot of shower head options. It was also a short drive to town for restaurants and souvenir shopping. Overall, it was a great stay. I would recommend it.

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor, we stayed here for two nights. The people who work here are very helpful and knowledgeable about their neighborhood. They pointed us in the direction of great tours and sites, and delicious local restaurants. The ladies in the breakfast area are constantly working, cleaning tables, and making sure all the food is filled. Everyone made us feel welcomed. They also do s'mores around a campfire every evening, weather permitting. I don't want to forget about the cleaning people either, they did an exceptional job cleaning our room. I highly recommend staying here. It's very convenient to downtown BH, and Acadia National Park.

We stayed two nights at the BW on a trip to Acadia National Park. I would highly recommend the hotel. When we checked in the Desk Clerk had recommendations for dining (based on our questions), which was helpful. We are Best Western Rewards Club Members. That gave us a gift bag (or points) and an upgraded room. The room was the largest non-suite motel room I've ever stayed in - very spacious and nice. The pillow-top king mattress was really comfortable. The Breakfast area was the nicest self-serve I've ever experienced. The ladies working the breakfast were friendly and kept everything stocked and clean. The selection was very nice and the dining room quite comfortable. The grounds for the hotel are pretty and they have numerous benches where you can sit and enjoy the quiet. The price was a bit high - but I'm sure comparable for the timing of our stay.

We stayed here for two nights as we visited Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. What a gem! The property is very tidy and we'll maintained. There are a set of 4 or 5 single story buildings. There was a nice grassy area with several seats in the middle of this grouping of buildings. There was also a playground and a fire pit on the other side of the buildings. Apparently they offer s'mores in the evening. We weren't able to take part in this. We did enjoy the pool and hot tub area. There were laundry facilities too. Our room and beds were comfortable. The complementary breakfast offered here is the best we've had. Many choices, including sugar free condiments. They clearly go out of their way to make travelers comfortable.

We all thank you very much for staying with us and we are very happy that you enjoyed your yourselves!

27/07/2017

My family stayed here 5 years ago on our trip to Acadia. Our second time was even better. The staff is still very helpful and friendly, the grounds are impeccably kept and the pool area is still smallish but clean. The big improvement to me was the new dining area. There are more tables and seating area, and the food area is separated from the eating area. There's still a great selection of breakfast foods, and the 2 ladies keep everything stocked and clean. The lobby is spacious and offers free popcorn and cookies (the best is Whoopie-pie Wednesday!) They supply everything for smores on the campfire every night at the playground; they will even make them for you if you want. The location is away from the bustle of Bar Harbor, and if you are looking to go there all you have to do is catch the free LL Bean shuttle that stops at the front of the hotel. We had a great 6-day stay this time, and we're glad we came back.

"Acadia - Best Choice!!!"

5
26/07/2017

This motel was the ABSOLUTE best choice that we could have made for our 5 day/4night getaway to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park! Only a couple of miles away from the main entrance to Acadia and maybe a 15 / 20 minute drive to Bar Harbor. Quiet, lovely setting on Route 3. Set back from the main road so any room location is just fine. One of the highlights is that it is only a one story motel....therefore no noise from an upper level!!! An older property that has upgraded its mattresses, linens, etc. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms were spotless. The front desk staff was knowledgable about the area and always available to answer any questions. The grounds were well maintained. The pool area (heated pool!) was also a nice amenity. Pool towels were provided in each guest room. Each guest room also had a coffee machine, small refrigerator and a microwave. A full breakfast was included each morning - a nice selection of eggs, sausages, breads, waffles, cereals, juice and coffee or tea. The breakfast was served in a separate building that had sufficient seating for everyone. The women who cooked and served the breakfast were delightful! We traveled over to the Schoodic peninsula as well as Bass Harbor/Southwest Harbor areas by car and again I have to say that this was by far the best location. No dealing with downtown Bar Harbor traffic. We did eat in Bar Harbor all 4 nights - some great restaurants (other reviews) but I would not want to stay in town. Way too touristy, crowded and noisy. I would highly recommend this property.

We hesitate to stay inside busy tourist towns. We came to see Acadia NP, not to buy souvenirs. This was a great location. The room was spotless, the facility well maintained. The bed, linens and toiletries were top shelf. Their were several warm touches, like making s'mores in the evening over a fire and fresh baked cookies. We left before breakfast, so no comment. The front desk was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They went out of their way to make sure our visit was exceptional. This isn't the Ritz, but it is a great place to stay.

My family and I had a great time at the hotel. Our room was clean and the staff did a great job maintaining it while we were there. The breakfast was excellent each morning and the ladies who staff the breakfast room are very nice. There's some construction on Route 3 towards Bar Harbor but the local free bus service was excellent too. One minor complaint: The walls are thin so it can be noisy depending on who your neighbors are. First night was loud but the other two were fine.

First off, this hotel was a perfect distance from the park and downtown Bar Harbor. Area is quiet and peaceful. Free breakfast is good and the building/room it is in is really nice! Room was clean and nice. Staff were very friendly. Prices were reasonable. Convenient to park right outside your room, but doesn't have the creepy vibe that hotels laid out this way normally have. Definitely suggest staying here for a more reasonable rate, especially since you will be driving to get to the park no matter what.

We stayed at this hotel in a pinch. Originally, we had booked another hotel but due schedules changing and wanting to add another traveler we had to rebook elsewhere. Thankfully we were able to reserve a room here. The room was very clean. Perhaps the cleanest I have ever stayed in. The beds and pillows are awesome. The staff were very nice and attentive. The pool is in great shape. The breakfast were much better than I anticipated. Delicious and ample amounts of food. Very close to all touristy areas but also allows to pass little hidden gems you might not see if staying in the hub. When I get back to Bar Harbor I will be reserving a room here once again.

I thought the hotel was more pricey than in other areas of Maine (other Best Western hotels). I really liked that you can park right in front of your hotel room which made it easy to move luggages into the room. They had a nice swing set in the front which was relaxing to go on before bed. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was great. They have a very spacious breakfast area.

Short drive to Hulls Cove visitor center at Acadia National Park. Rates are competitive with hotels in Bar Harbor village. Our room was large, a little outdated, but very comfortable with armchair, desk and sofa. Bathroom was large and looked to be recently updated. No problems with hot water or low water pressure. The buffet breakfast, served in its own building, is substantial. Scrambled eggs some of the best I've eaten at a buffet. Sausages, fruit, large variety of breads, waffles, yogurt, juices, etc. are also provided. The room is large and seating was never a problem, even during busy times. Extremely friendly and efficient staff taking care of everything and everyone. WiFi worked well in our room and public areas. We would definitely stay here again.

We just returned home last night from our trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia. While there we took part in activities such as exploring the park, enjoying the views, taking boat rides, seeing lighthouses, and visiting many shops and restaurants too. Our 'home base' for our time there was the Best Western Acadia Park Inn. It's located only a short and easy ride from the Bar Harbor waterfront and Acadia Park. When originally doing my research on TA I had planned for us to stay in Bar Harbor near the waterfront. But since this trip got arranged at the last minute many places were either sold out or the remaining rooms were priced too high for the four of us. So after reading reviews on TA we chose the better value at the Best Western. I'm glad we did. The property looks nicer than in the photos which looked fine as it was. It is a motel and not a hotel and you do park in front of your room. Don't let that dissuade you for a minute. The property is nicely landscaped and maintained and better than expected. Upon checking in we were greeted by two friendly ladies at the front desk who made check in easy and provided some answers to our questions on the area. Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. While on property we enjoyed the breakfast every morning that's included in the price of your stay as well as cookies and hot popped popcorn in the lobby every night. There's also a coffee set up in the lobby and a computer and printer for your use. We missed the s'mores each night because we kept getting back too late. Our kids made it into the pool once and enjoyed it but people were using it daily and it was never too crowded. At night we slept well with little to no noise from adjacent rooms or the parking lot. It truly was a great experience. When we checked out on Monday morning my wife went in to compliment them on their friendliness and on the property overall. In hindsight I am glad the places in town did not have availability to our liking as we would have missed this great value and great experience. There are numerous places to stay in the Bar Harbor area of different design and price points. That being said, if after reviewing different options you are considering staying at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn then I can say that we highly recommend it.

I recently stayed at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn for a visit to Acadia National Park and Bark Harbor, Maine. The hotel is located just a few miles from the park entrance and about 5 miles to downtown Bar Harbor. So the location is in a great spot as long as you are OK with not being in downtown Bar Harbor. It is easy enough to get into town and can walk around once you get there. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast had a good selection of your typical hotel breakfast options. There is a pool, though I didn't use it. There is also plenty of free parking at the hotel. You can certainly pay more to be in town, but if you have a car it isn't a problem. I would stay here again.

We visited the Best Western Acadia Park Inn in late May for business reasons. They could not have been better to work with. They worked with me ahead of time and assured me they would be able to accommodate our needs. Our check in was efficient and friendly. The staff gave good advice on where we might find services since we were late and ahead of the tourist season. Our room was spacious,with plenty of room to set up a computer and printer. It was also quiet which was very much appreciated. The staff was always friendly and helpful in answering our questions and giving advice. To our delight,they always had cookies available in the evening. They had one of the best Best Western breakfast areas we have ever experienced. Overall, it was wonderful and we will gladly return again.

Only 2 miles from Acadia which was a huge perk for us. The outside is adorable and quaint so we were excited as soon as we pulled in. Rooms are cute. Bathtub and shower were a bit out of date but I didn't really care too much. Bed was comfortable enough. Breakfast was free and plentiful. Worth noting the lobby was very nice and the people that worked there were top notch. We ended up chatting a bit with Karen and her coworker (wish I'd caught her name) and they were warm, funny women. Seriously Best Western-you have two shining stars there-do what you can to keep them happy so they don't bring their magic somewhere else! Downtown Bar Harbor is pricey and packed. Do yourself a favor and stay here-it's out of the way just enough.

"Average rooms but convenient location and super breakfast"

26/06/2017

The rooms seem a little out of date with the furniture giving that feeling. It feels rather dark inside the rooms as well. , I wish they'd modernize the room some, and brighten it up so it appears more inviting. This is not the 70s and 80s anymore. The hotel though is rather convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. Not going to lie about that. 15 min. perhaps. It's a great price for the location. I'm not a breakfast person, but I fell into temptation and ate. The breakfast was awesome and filling. They have a huge selection, not just your waffle, egg, cereal and drink station. The breakfast staff was nice and friendly. They have a fairly large dining area for breakfast. The hotel has a pool, but I cannot comment on it as I didn't use it. The hotel leaves a reusable water bottle as your gift on the table by the window when you first come into your room.

Thank you David for your review. While we have updated the décor in half of the rooms, your room was not one of them...yet.

All of our guests do not get water bottles but we do try to give our frequent guests, longer duration guests and obvious hikers those or other items. Glad you liked them! Best wishes, Jane

Friendly staff, clean rooms and easy access to Acadia NP. Visited end of June, so it was busy and the hotel accommodated all our needs. Super warm welcome and information about getting around the area with the ongoing detours.

"Updated and Clean with Awesome Staff"

We booked a short three-day getaway in Bar Harbor and decided to stay at the Best Western. Several years ago, we had stayed here and remembered it as being a good, basic place with reasonable pricing. Our arrival was much later than expected but the check-in was very efficient with some incredibly helpful staff. Much to our surprise, the rooms had been updated and were beautiful. It was all very modern, clean and larger than we had remembered. The bathroom is huge for Best Western and had a marble vanity and a shower that made you not want to get out. The bed was incredibly comfortable, so much so we got up much later than we expected. Aside from the road construction going on for the drive into Bar Harbor (minor annoyance), we couldn't have been happier with our stay. We plan on a late summer trip back and will stay at the Best Western Acadia Inn again.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We are very happy to hear that you have been a prior guest and enjoyed our recent renovations. (Not all of our rooms are completed yet but will be by next spring.)We do look forward to having you return in late summer. I believe the rooms have been updated since your initial stay years ago but the most current updates were done over the winter into this spring. Thank you for your loyalty! Warm regards, Jane

Honestly one of the better stays I have ever had at a hotel. Clean, staff was fantastic. Free breakfast had so many choices and all of it was fresh and delicious. Details I appreciate that I wish more hotels did, night lights in the bathroom, lighted wall switches in the room by the door, soap dish by the bathroom sink, nice spa soaps, lotion, shampoo and conditioner all made by Bath and Body Works. Bathroom was so roomy and had a quite exhaust fan that actually worked and room AC/Heat unit was also much quiter than other hotels I have been too.

"Good value and location"

04/06/2017

When we visit Bar Harbor, we are going hiking in Acadia NP therefore we are looking for a lodging which is reasonably priced, well maintained and close to the park entrance. This motel fits all 3 requirements. It is on Route 3 which is the main road to Bar Harbor so it is easy to find. It is about a 10 minute drive to the visitor center. Acadia has no lodging inside the park nor any concession lodging near the park so this is about as close as you can get. The free breakfast was excellent even providing gluten free options which was a wonderful treat for our daughter who is GF. The entire staff was friendly and willing to provide information or service.

I stayed at this hotel due to it's great reviews on TripAdvisor, the price, and it's proximity to Acadia. The staff is super nice, my room was clean and breakfast was perfect. Compared to other hotels in the area, I got a great place to stay for a very reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again.

Great value compared to similar level competitors , but let down compared to other BW hotels. I am regular at BW as i a costco member and used that discount. I was expecting the regular BW style for this property, but its more like a motel style property. But no complaints as i could all the similar graded hotels in bar harbor areas are motel style. Stay and breakfast great just like any BW property.

JaneK473, General Manager at Best Western Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for using your Costco discount card to stay with us! We are not an interior corridor hotel and you are correct that the area has mostly that type of lodging. Many of our rooms have undergone a complete transition and the remainder will follow this winter for next spring. We appreciate your staying with us and hope you will return soon! Regards, Jane

I am not normally a fan of motels. That being said, there are many positives about this Best Western branded inn.This BW is surrounded by woods, in a quiet location, immediately off the road to Bar Harbor, but not within walking distance. It has obviously been renovated to a higher standard than a traditional motel, with granite countertops and marble transitions between the carpet in the bedroom and the ceramic tile in the bathroom. We had one of two available king efficiencies, complete with a full size fridge, stove, microwave, and a coffeemaker (no dishwasher), and dishes, silverware, and cooking utensils. There was a large dresser and large closet, complete with beach towels. We arrived a week before Memorial Day, so the outdoor pool was not yet open. There is a small playground for children. Parking is right outside your motel room door. While convenient, you do hear horns honk as car locks are secured. Every staff member we encountered provided excellent service and shared suggestions for sights to see (including maps) and restaurants to enjoy. Fresh baked cookies every day at the front desk. Breakfast is in a separate building and provided ample choices: small cheese omelettes, meat, hash browns, waffle maker, cereals, yoghurts, juices, fruit. Due to construction on the road into Bar Harbor, there was a detour. Front desk provided a map to show us a shortcut. I still can't believe the value!

Much better then we expected. The pictures on the web site are right on the money. King room was spacious, clean and well stocked. Plenty of room. Refrigerator, microwave and safe. About a 2o minute drive to Bar Harbor depending on traffic. !0 minutes to Arcadia Park. Lots of restaurants nearby. Wonderful breakfast room with many different choices. Very convenient and much more reasonable then down town hotels. Lovely grounds with outdoor pool, children's play are.

The room was very nice. Minor point, but the soap, lotion and shampoo was wonderful. Town was not fully open, we knew we were early in the season, but we had plans after our departure. Thunder hole was great, the storms the day before left the waves crashing and splashing! Been to Bar Harbor before, it is a nice town, getting a little run down from 10 years ago. But again the Best Western was totally comfortable, clean and breakfast was terrific.

What a great hotel. We spent 4 days here and it was so close to everything, but far enough away so you weren't in congestion. Acadia is 2 miles away, and downtown is a few more. The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful and they even left us an anniversary card signed by many of the people who work there and some sparkling cider in our room for our anniversary, what a thoughtful thing to do Jill, in the breakfast room, was such a sweetheart. She was always so pleasant and greeted you with a smile when you came to eat breakfast. she did a great job getting all the breakfast items out and keeping them full. What a sweet sweet lady The rooms are very large, clean, and quiet. We stayed in the back area so it was away from the road. the rooms have been renovated and are very nice with a mini fridge and microwave, and also a small table and a couple chairs. Not sure if they added any sound proofing during the renovation but we couldn't hear the people on either side of us, which was great. We will definitely stay here again!

Very close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. We were there just at peak leaf time, but sadly the lobster pounds had closed by then. Still had wonderful fish and lobster rolls.

Hotel in general is dated, but the bathroom was renovated. Front desk staff & cleaning crew were very friendly. My only grievances are that the bed & pillows were uncomfortable & the walls are paper thin. We could hear TVs and the bathroom activities of other guests at all hours of the night. My wife also did not like that they didn't have FS1 in their channel lineup, but we know that's minor in the grand scheme of things. The breakfast building was clean & breakfast was very good every morning. They switch it up a little each day & they were doing a great job at keeping things stocked & fresh. This BW is one of the few reasonably affordable places open this late in the year & it was an easy drive to/from Bar Harbor & Acadia.

Very close to Acadia Park entrance. Close to good restaurants, and town of Bar Harbor. Staff super friendly and helpful. Rooms not spectacular but clean and well maintained. Breakfast is listed as continental, but is much more substantial than a usual continental breakfast. Free goodies in the front desk area in the afternoon. Motel like configuration allows you to park in front of your door. Very nice and FREE ! Couldn't be happier with our stay. Excellent value. Better book EARLY, it was full every day.

The bedding was so comfy. The breakfast had so much to choose from and even had eggs and sausage and waffles! It was conveniently close to Acadia National Park. We liked that it was single level and we could park right in front of our door. It was quiet and had a fan in the bathroom. The shower was hot and had a great shower head. The employees were very helpful and sent us to great restaurants in Bar Harbour. The cost to stay here was inexpensive and the location was convenient. They had a nice pool but it was too cold outside to swim. The television worked great. We loved our stay here and will come back!

We were looking for a hotel to spend one night on our road trip through New England. Since we typically stop around dinner time and are just spending one night, we are always looking for good value, but do not want to sacrifice cleanliness and comfort. This hotel hit the mark. A bonus was the wonderful breakfast- the largest selection of breakfast items we found on our trip. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Definitely would recommend this hotel.

Beds were extra comfy and plenty of pillows. Definitely not a high end facility, but at a very reasonable price for the area. It was there last night of the season, so I was really skeptical of what the continental breakfast would have. Fear not the breakfast facility was super clean and unbelievably filled with all kinds of food from breads, oatmeal, fruit, kielbasa, scrambled eggs, hash browns, make your own waffles - juice and really good coffee. Room was plenty full sized, bathroom was older but super clean - towels were plentiful and actually dried. Location was advantageous to the park.

24/10/2016

This facility is about 8 km ( 5 mi) from the town of Bar Harbor and the nearest restaurant is about 3 km, but do not let that discourage you from choosing this location. The BW Acadia has several buildings and most rooms are at ground level ( a plus in my mind). We had a king bed room which was very roomy, very clean and well appointed. One thing I really noticed and liked is that the electrical outlets are located at about waist level making them very accessible. The breakfast room is located in a separate building, it is quite large with the seating area separated from the food area. Everything was clean, and bright. The food offerings are varied and well stocked. Cold cereals, waffles, eggs, corned beef hash , a variety of breads and pastries and fruit. If your visit to Bar Harbour is to include a big night on the town with having several " sociables" and you do not have a designated driver, then this may not be the place for you, otherwise this is a great place. We will return.

This property is an excellent value while visiting Acadia National Park. It is within a few minutes of one entrance to the park. The rooms are basic but well maintained. The fan in the bathroom was a little loud but everything else worked well and was clean. The full breakfast made this an outstanding value. The dedicated breakfast room was inviting and well maintained. The breakfast is worth $15 per person considering the full fare and no tip required.

I was very pleasantly surprised with this motel, given the price we paid. Rooms were comfortable (though not perfect - more on that later), and staff (everyone from housekeeping to dining room staff to front desk) were very friendly and helpful. The outdoor pool is heated to 82 degrees, so it was still open when we were there in early Oct, though we didn't get a chance to use it. There is also some grassy areas and a toddler playground. What stood out for us was the breakfast. We were expecting a very minimal continental breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised with a fairly large smorgasbord of selections, both hot and cold. The dining "room" is in it's own separate building next to the office, and has ample seating, and like I said, lots of selection. Hot foods consisted of a different potato, meat, and egg selection each of the three days we were there, as well as a DIY waffle station with about 6 different toppings. Cold foods consisted of a large variety of breads/ bagels, pastries, and cereals, hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, and fruit (though that was minimal). Coffee, milk and juice of course, too. Filled us up with energy every day to tackle nearby Acadia, which is about a 5 minute drive from the hotel. Nearby (walking distance) also is Pirates Cove, a really awesome looking miniature golf place that were didn't get to try, but really want to! Rooms - not be best, but I really can't deduct any stars for this, given the price and the other excellent qualities of this motel. The rooms were small but clean, and well maintained. The toiletries were of a better quality than expected. Only real flaw was that where were only two drawers to place your clothes in, which is just not enough for 4 people! And there is no coat closet - just a hanging rack in the sink area. which is the other end of the room from the door. So yes, I'm sure you can find a better room for twice the price, and maybe even a slightly better breakfast and location if you're willing to pay even more than twice the price. For us, we'll happily return to the Best Western.

Thank you very much for your generous review! We are always happy to hear from our guests.

"Lost our reservation, not going back "

17/10/2016

When we got to the hotel they had no record of our reservation. I showed them the confirmation email and they said they couldn't do anything about it because they were fully booked and blamed it on the computers. We booked it on booking.com and apparently they were having troubles with the website. They treated it as a "oh well not our fault" situation that the computers lost our reservation. Eventually they were able to find us an extra room that was available and charged us more than what we would have paid for the original room we booked. No price reduction or anything complimentary for the hassle of them losing our reservation. Also, the pictures on booking.com are of the Best Western in downtown bar harbor. Other than that we had a nice stay. The complimentary breakfast was really good and room was clean. Probably wouldn't stay again though.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
I do apologize for this situation. Looking at the reservation history, it looks like the reservation was cancelled shortly after it was made on line. I am happy we were able to accommodate you after all. The room rate charged was matched to that of the cancelled booking. I truly am sorry for the confusion but happy you had a room and all worked out well. Best wishes, Jane

"Great Value, Awesome Breakfast, and Friendly Staff"

16/10/2016

Stayed in this hotel for 8 days on a vacation to Acadia National Park. I wanted something affordable, but convenient to the park and this property fit the bill perfectly. While I generally like Best Western as a brand, I am always a little nervous about properties with external rooms. This property was clean and well maintained. The breakfast was served from 6:30 to 10:00 am and was one of the best hotel breakfasts I have experiences for it's variety and the size of the breakfast area. It was typical hotel breakfast fair, but items did rotate throughout my stay. I was traveling with 4 other family members and everyone found something they wanted from eggs to oatmeal to sausage and hashbrowns. There was even almond milk, which was a first for me at a motel. Even better was that the breakfast staff was courteous and efficient keeping everything well stocked and maintained. There were also newspapers in the breakfast area, including the weekly Acadia paper that highlighted events at the park. Our rooms were cleaned as expected and kept stocked with soaps and shampoos. Beds were comfortable and rooms had a refrigerator and microwave. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and fresh baked cookies brought some of my party back a few days. The laundry facilities were just a bit odd in that that were outside, but we were fortunate in that our room was pretty close. I guess when the rooms are all external there isn't a place for laundry inside, but if the property were to ever be renovated I would recommend enclosing the laundry - it was a bit cold doing laundry at night, not to mention my Dad dropping items in the parking lot on his way to the washing machines. The front desk provided change for use of the machines and everything worked so aside from the fact it was outside, there were no issues. The property had smores nightly in a campfire area. We joked about it each night, but never made it to having smores, but I thought that was a cute idea that kids may like. Overall, everyone in my party enjoyed their stay at this motel and it turned out to be a great value. Yes, you could stay at the expensive and beautiful resorts in the area, but if you are like my family and only spend time in your room to sleep, why spend more money when you can get everything you want and need at a more affordable price? It was also nice to see that the staff seemed happy and we didn't note a grumpy employee in the lot.

"Great Place to Stay When Visiting the Park"

14/10/2016

This hotel is located near the entrance to Acadia National Park so it is a great place to stay if you are visiting there. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms were great , and there is a good breakfast, which they call "continental" but is more than just cereal and toasted bread. It has hot and cold items and one morning the staff passed out warm scones that were delicious! The staff knows the area and can give good recommendations for places to visit and to eat. The only drawback is the distance from Bar Harbor itself makes it not walkable. You definitely have to drive in if you want to shop or eat in the town. We always managed to find a parking spot even in the middle of the October tourist season but it was crowded! We would definitely stay here again. The price is reasonable even in the tourist season and it is a great place to be for visiting everything in the area.

We checked in and went to our room expecting one comparable to a mom and pop roadside motel. Were we surprised. The room was large, modern and clean. You would have thought that you were staying at a Best Western Plus or better. The nice thing about a one story building is that there is no one walking above your head making it a nice quiet place to stay. As one reviewer says, "a nice alternative to busy Bar Harbor." The staff is very professional and helpful. Yes, parking is outside your front door. No need to remember where you parked your car. Even though the motel has a Bar Harbor address, it is six miles out of town.

"Perfect location for a Bar Harbor / Acadia visit."

This is a great place to stay for a Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park visit! The rooms were large, very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Their continental breakfast was much better than normally experienced. Give a try—you will be happy that you did!

This was a first visit to the area and chose the Best Western because of it proximity to Acadia National Park and also because it had good reviews on trip advisor. The room was nice and very clean. The staff was always very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast every morning was great! And I can't forget to mention Jill on the breakfast staff, she was such a sweetheart. All in all a nice place to stay.

"Nice Alternative to BUSY Bar Harbor"

10/10/2016

Great location if you're looking to avoid the "chaos" of Bar Harbor. Quieter setting tucked into and area with some nice wooded and green space to enjoy in the evening. I spent most of my time in Acadia National Park, so the location was perfect - just a few miles from Hull's Cove entrance and easier access to Highway 1 if you're heading to the Schoodic side of the park (highly recommended) Just over 2 miles from a beautiful Frenchman's Bay Sunrise. Venturing into Bar Harbor is still easy if you want to take in a tour, kayak, or check out the Bar Island Path - but beware parking can be tricky. Better continental breakfast than I'm used to seeing in comparable hotels. I'm not a B&B or Luxury hotel gal, and was unsure about renting a cottage (being a solo traveler) - A little more than I would normally spend on a room (but hotels here seemed pricier than other national park destinations - and my room was more spacious than anticipated) This turned out to be the perfect place for my Acadia Park vacation.

Though a little old, this Inn is maintained up to date. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The cleaning crew is excellent and truly take pride in their work. In addition, the staff that prepare and care for the breakfast is wonderful. They provide a buffet style breakfast, not a continental one with excellent food.

This is my third visit to this property in the course of 25 years. To me it reflects what Mt. Desert Island is all about, natural but modern with all the convinces. The hotel has kept up with all modern deco trnds and technologies, and now they have a all new Breakfast room. You can park right in-front of your room. Staff is super friendly.

Good location for visiting the Park. Overpriced for the quality. Was clean and with easy access. When checking out, I noticed being charged a higher price for the second night. Since I reserved both nights at the same time and with a credit card, it was disconcerting to discover they had changed my rate without telling me in advance. Only after much complaining did they change it back to what it should have been to start with.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for staying with us. I apologize that during the course of extending your stay by one night , you encountered the rate increase that occurs during the Columbus Day Weekend. Rates change various times throughout our summer season and many times they occur during a stay. We are happy your found our hotel to be clean and with easy access. Please stay again! Regards, Jane

"Wonderful, Park By the Door Inn"

06/10/2016

First of all, we're spoiled. We're used to staying at the The Bayview Inn, a gorgeous inn that's about as good as it gets. The 5 stars I'm giving to the Best Western takes in consideration other motels in its price range and in that category, this motel was perfect for us - lots of room, comfy beds, a modern room safe, great service, much better than average free breakfast, plenty of towels and just about anything you'd need. The only complaint might be the fact that if you're used to a nice desk for your computer, you'll get a table instead, and I'd suggest bringing your own power strip to hook it into. We had to unplug the microwave, so this isn't a business motel but a very nice family/traveler motel. Someone complained also that the 2 washers and 2 dryers are located outside with just a bit of overhead cover, but with the weather warm enough, I just didn't mind that. In fact, the fresh air was nicer than being in a cramped laundry area reeking of perfumed detergent. We didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. Our room was very quiet. We were in the farthest building back, in an end room, so really, VERY little noise and parking next to the door is great, especially when you're older and are a bit handicapped. We had 2 queen beds - very roomy. Some people might complain that the decor isn't modern, but we found it much more appealing and comfortable than a stark room with very modern furnishings where we stayed two nights of our trip. We missed the ocean view but then again, we were on the ocean or by it almost every day anyway, so not a huge loss. So, save some money and give the Best Western Acadia Park Inn a try. Its very close to a park entrance, which is nice too and we didn't mind the drive into town. If you need a taxi, we recommend Point 2 Point, very reasonable rates, I think about $12.50 plus tip to take us downtown.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much for these lovely comments! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and we do hope you will stay with us again. Our décor is getting an facelift this year and we intend to keep it cozy and comfortable. Best wishes to you, Jane

I recently stayed there for 3 nights and I absolutely loved it! The front desk staff was friendly, kind and helpful.The room was spotless and had everything you would need- coffee maker, safe, microwave,and fridge.The bathroom was clean and the shower had great water pressure. The bed was so comfortable and was dressed with 4 pillows and warm linens. The free breakfast offered everything from make- your- own Belgian waffles to oatmeal, cereal, omelettes, sausage patties, corned beef hash, toast, bagels, muffins, juice, coffee, tea and fresh fruit. All in all , I found it to be a wonderful place to stay and look forward visiting again.

The room was comfortable with a microwave and fridge. The bathroom was really large, clean and modern. It was about 10 minutes from Bar Harbor and the price was right. It had an awesome complimentary breakfast which made the price worth it. They also take AARP and AAA discounts which help with the overall stay. They also serve s'mores by the common outside area in the evening. A nice place.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. At first I was worried that this motel might be too far from town but it turns out this was PERFECTLY located. Very close to the entrance to Acadia and just minutes from the bustling downtown of Bar Harbor. Hotel front desk exceedingly friendly and helpful. The rooms large and very clean. Beds comfy and bathroom clean with plenty of towels.Breakfast was the typical hotel fare but plentiful and the breakfast area clean and well run by two very friendly and also very helpful ladies who are great sources of info about the area. We had to leave early due to a medical emergency in our family back home or we would have stayed several days longer. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Everyone was friendly and helpful. breakfast was good, room was great and clean. other guests were friendly also. had an outdoor grill for our use and also a fire pit where we were able to make smores and sit around and get to know the other guests as we did.

This hotel is decent, especially for the price. Very friendly staff, helpful to find a local restaurant and hints about things to do. Breakfast is a little better and more variety than most chain hotels. About 10-15m from the town proper of Bar Harbor, but a lot less crazy out here. Rooms are clean and a little plain, but we didn't spend much time in the room so did not care at all. Queen bed was comfortable enough. Fresh warm cookies on arrival, a nice touch after a 13h drive. We would stay here again.

28/09/2016

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Acadia National Park. This hotel is just just outside the town of Bar Harbor. It is far enough away to escape the crowds, but a short ten-minute drive takes you to the town and Acadia National Park was even closer. The room was clean and had everything you need, and breakfast was adequate. Coffee and tea are available all day, and there are cookies available in the evening. The hotel is set back from the road, so rooms towards the back are very quiet.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review

Very clean rooms, quiet atmosphere. Hike or bike in the Park and get a good night's sleep here. The breakfast is very good, with eggs, waffles, yogurts, cereals, muffins, coffee, juices all available. Staying here you're able to avoid the traffic and crowds of downtown Bar Harbor, as you can enter the Park on the NE side at the Hulls Cove entrance just a few miles from the Best Western.

This hotel has clean, comfortable rooms. The beds are great and the refrigerator and microwave were nice to have during our stay. The staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was clean and very welcome on hot days especially. The reason I didn't rate this a 5 was due solely to the breakfast that is included with the room. The food was what you would expect but the staff simply was unable to keep up with the demand. There were just 2 people working the breakfast area both mornings and they were completely overwhelmed and unable to put food out fast enough. The hotel was sold out both nights we were there but that isn't a surprise to the management and they should increase staffing on days the hotel is full. Overall a good stay but maybe we should have had breakfast in town.

The room is so-so. Our first day we were greeted with fruit flies. They would hover over the sink. The night manager was unhelpful "it is a natural occurrence" and "the winter hasn't killed the bugs yet" but the day manager was on the ball and had maintenance empty the drain finding a bucket full of flies. Nice guy. Internet is spotty. We had to restart our kindles over and over. The rooms are clean and the entire facility is clean. Standard breakfast with frozen eggs, make your own waffles, etc. Wouldn't stay here again.

In the context of the very expensive Mount Desert Island/Acadia market, the Best Western was a good value and a pleasant property. It was extremely clean and the staff was especially pleasant and helpful. Its principal drawback is its distance from the primary attractions on the Island, and that probably is reflected in the price.

We started our hotel stay with a warm reception by hotel employees. After checking us in and answering our questions, we were directed to our room (FYI - it is a Motel) and they invited us to participate in their nightly s'mores campfire. The room was nice - roomy but dated. There were a few repairs that needed to be made to the room, including a break in the shower wall where the handle meets the wall, some stains in the grout work, and an odor in the room. We overlooked these minor issues because the price was right - and the room was clean. The big sell to us was the included breakfast - they described it to us as "deluxe", and deluxe it was! There were many options to choose from, including hot breakfast items including a waffle station.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review

This is a ‘single floor' location with convenient drive up parking right at your room door. It is a few miles (approx 10 minutes) drive into downtown Bar Harbor. Front desk associates were very helpful with area information upon our check in. LL Bean sponsored area Free Island Explorer Shuttle bus will stop at the roadway area for trips into downtown Bar Harbor---lots of traffic during the summer and finding available parking in the downtown area can be an adventure of its own. Hotel Lobby area has coffee/tea available round the clock and cookies offered at 3PM…note there is a special on Wednesday's –“ whoopee pies”, which went quickly on our rainy Wednesday afternoon. Lobby area offered special ‘blueberry' coffee which was delicious. There is a small playground area (tot lot) in the back of the property. Outdoor pool, but we didn't have an opportunity to include that during our stay. Our room was clean and very adequate for our family of 4 with 2 young adult boys. Enough linens, towels for all and toiletries provided. Bathroom sink (with shelf below) is outside of the door area of the shower/toilet area, which was very helpful for our family. Comfortable A/C, TV, Microwave, frig, hairdryer, coffee/tea maker, ironing board/iron in the room; WIFI worked fine. Full breakfast is provided in a separate building very near the rooms. There was absolutely everything(!!) you could think of (hot and cold) available for breakfast that was kept supplied and all was very good, but not in this area was the specialty blueberry coffee..? There were enough tables and chairs to accommodate small and large groups, as well as trays to take out back to your room. There is a very clean, well stocked Hannaford Supermarket in downtown Bar Harbor area with an adequate parking area. There are many things to do in the Bar Harbor area---see other Trip Advisor reviews for attractions in Acadia National Park, Abbe Museum, Atlantic Brewery, Bar Harbor Cellars Winery, Agamont Park, Shore Path, Village Green, shopping, restaurants (Mainely BBQ, Peppers pizza, West Street Café) in the area.

We thank you Mary for this informative and lovely review. I think you have caught on to our specialty coffee placement. We love to have our guests visit the lobby and that is a sure fire way to get you in so we are able to say hello and ask how your stay is going! Blueberry is a favorite in the summer as the pumpkin is in the fall. (So pleased that you enjoyed it! )We hope your family enjoyed the S'Mores at least one of the evenings at the S'mores fire pit near the playground? We look forward to seeing you all again. Thank you for this review! Best wishes, Jane

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Best Western Acadia. It was VERY clean, spacious and comfortable. It was honestly one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed at. They offer complimentary breakfast which was decent and in a nice facility. Your room includes toiletries from Bath&Body Works, a microwave, a safe and a small fridge. The staff was friendly and professional. It is a short drive (maybe 8 minutes?) from the Acadia Park and downtown Bar Harbor. Not walking distance, but we liked being in a quieter location and away from the commotion in town. For being a more affordable hotel, this really impressed us. Thank you Best Western Acadia!

Thank you for this great review. Our housekeeping staff is very happy to know their hard work is truly appreciated. We hope you will be able to stay with us again soon! Best wishes, Jane

The room was clean and spacious, but if you stay hear, you better hope you don't have anyone staying in the adjoining rooms. You hear everything...I mean everything, from doors slamming to showers, to toilets flushing, to voices. Yes, you can hear every word that is uttered. So if lack of privacy iis what you strive for, stay here.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Gina and Mike, I apologize for the noisy night you experienced! It is rare l that we get a noise complaint and I will definitely will be looking into what we can do to prevent this from happening again. I may e-mail you privately through Tripadvisor if I am unable to identify what room you were in. Please know that we want all of our guests to have a restful night and we wish you had mentioned this while you were here at the property .We might have been able to remedy the situation at that time. Warm regards, Jane

Second time we've chosen this spot as our Acadia home base. Quite adequate. Nothing fancy but spacious rooms, clean, working air conditioning, easy parking, and very cordial staff. Breakfast is just fine if you choose well. Will stay again.

My family and I stayed here during the last full week of August and it exceeded our expectations! Room was extremely clean, the staff was helpful and friendly, and contrary to what some others have said I thought the continental breakfast was great! Very broad selection that changed slightly everyday.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We sure do appreciate your staying with us for the week and happy that we exceeded your expectations! That is our goal. We try to vary the breakfast daily so those who do stay longer than two or three days will not be bored with the same menu. We hope you will stay with us again. Best wishes, Jane

We loved staying at the Acadia Park Inn, Bar Harbor, ME! It had every amenity to make us comfortable. A very clean, large, comfortable room with new pillow-top mattress, micro, fridge, safe, Wi-Fi , color flat screen TV with cable. The bathroom facilities had all the conveniences and a fantastic Sunbeam shower head! It was about 4 miles to the Acadia Park Main Entrance and access to the free buss that travels throughout the Island.

Everything about this hotel worked well for my husband and me: the king size bed was comfortable and had just the right bedding, the shower/toilet were separated from the sink area, parking was directly in front of our unit, there was a pool, play space for kids and a fire pit outside for families, the AC was quiet and didn't blow on us, and the room was clean. The breakfasts consisted of many choices and there was lots of seating available.

"Best Motel"

30/08/2016

We were initially booked at the Bar Harbor Motel and when we arrived, we were told that an "emergency" developed and our room was not available. (Over booked?) They did make arrangements for us at the Best Western prior to our arrival and created a smooth ,but nerve racking stressful event. To our surprise, the Bar Harbor Motel did us a great favor. The Best Western was really great. The room was super clean, the service was impeccable and the included breakfast was truly varied and co plete for anyone's taste. A definite gem!

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much Walter for such a nice review and we are happy things turned out well. I do believe it was a plumbing issue with the other hotel and I am happy we had availability here for you. Please stay with us again! Warm regards, Jane

"Nice Motel But Skip the Free Breakfast."

4
29/08/2016

This motel is located about 5 miles outside Bar Harbor. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The pillow top king bed in our room was especially comfortable. Rooms come with refrigerators and microwaves. There is a heated outside pool as well as access to a washer and dryer for laundry. Rooms all have outside access. The continental breakfast tried but was lacking. Corned beef hash tasted like it came from a can without being cooked. The hash brown potatoes were barely thawed let alone cooked. Waffles were good but the line was long. They had two four slice tasters that either didn't toast or burnt your toast. Disappointing given the cost and effort they put into providing what could have been a nice breakfast. Breakfast tip: if there is no line make a waffle, get some sausage, grab a cup of coffee. The butter is chilled so it won't melt on the waffles. Avoid toasting anything. Breakfast is free, so I probably shouldn't complain at all. It is terrible that you stay at what really is a nice motel and all you can remember is the disaster at breakfast.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We apologize that our free deluxe breakfast did not meet your expectations. We hope you will stay with us again. We are happy you liked your stay otherwise. Best wishes, Jane

Excellent service, very nice staff, very clean room, perfect for the tour of Acadia State Park. This hotel exceeds the usual breakfast and friendly way of Best Western. The rooms are very nice and spacious. Pool is available. You need a car to go around, especially when you wish to go to Bar Harbor. Little hint, do not forget to go to Bridge Street and walk the sand bar to the Island when there is low tide. The near by Charter house restaurant is great for dinner.

We had gone with low expectations but really liked the place. Our 5 year old had a great time with their fireplace and smores The place is a little bit away from bar harbor so you need to be ready for a 20 minute drive in and out of town We would highly recommend this to others

25/08/2016

The place was perfect. We did not spend much time in the room so we were not after a five star room. The outside of the buildings look older but the inside of the rooms were definitely updated. They were very clean everyday. We had a room with two queen beds. The hotel was out of the way of the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor and very close to the park entrance. The breakfast was great. Lots of hot choices and lots of food. Definitely more than a continental breakfast. The pool was small but we were not there for the pool. Very close to the miniature golf course, one restaurant and an ice cream place.

25/08/2016

We stayed at the Best Western because of it's value and location to the Park entrance. The grounds were beautiful. The breakfast area was very large and the serving area was walled off from the dining area. Our room was perfect for our stay and was very clean. The staff were extremely professional helpful and very professional. They have a discount on a harbor tour which we took. It was fantastic. You can pay twice or more as much for a place with an ocean view, or you can stay here and enjoy great service and spend your savings on your hearts desire.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
How well put! Even though Bar Harbor is located on an island, there are not many places that actually have a water view. Those that do generally do cost more for that benefit. We are happy to hear that you found us to be perfect for your needs and we look forward to seeing you again. Warm regards, Jane

Just enjoyed a 4 day stay in Bar Harbor and this hotel was perfect. Abit off the busy chaos of Bar Harbor yet close to everything. Very clean, very pleasant and helpful staff, great linens....all the things we like in a place to stay. Has an old fashioned "motel -motor lodge" feel which was perfect for our stay. Enjoyable outside spaces ro relax, awesome breakfast, and quiet. Will recommend AND will choose again when we return.

"Pleasant motel style accommodation - a drive away from the action"

17/08/2016

This is a motel style accommodation on the edge of Acadia national park. Rooms are spacious and clean with good air con. There is a small gated pool, a playground for small children, a laundry and free tea, coffee and cookies throughout the day. The hotel is around a 15 min drive from Bar Harbour - which can be difficult to park in and easy to get a ticket if you do. There is a shuttle bus (provided by the park) that stops outside the hotel. It runs every 30 to 60 mins depending on the time of day and stops at all of the hotels along the way. I found this a pain to be honest as we were not in control of when we went into the town/came home. The buses were crowded and over warm ( heating on full blast in mid August) and you need to be at the bus stop 20 mins before it left to guarantee getting on. Breakfast was of average standard and there was free wi-fi - always useful. A good base to explore the area but it isn't in the heart of the action

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We appreciate your review and for your staying with us . We are not in the "middle of the action" but about 4 1/2 miles from downtown. Our setting is serene and popular to those who wish to partake of the downtown but not stay there overnight. We appreciate being called a good base. Thank you and we hope you enjoyed your vacation here in Bar Harbor! All our best to you, Jane

We loved the Acadia Best Western! Our check-in was very quick and easy because the staff had our room key and information already printed out. We found our room to be very clean with quite a bit of room. This hotel is about 13 miles from Bar Harbor and we were thankful that is was. After the noise and congestion in downtown Bar Harbor, it was nice to relax at the hotel with peace and quiet. There is a heated outdoor pool and a play area for children. At night the hotel has a smores party. We would stay here again in a heart beat. There are several good restaurants not far away.

The room at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn was a great price alternative to the pricier hotels in the Bar Harbor area. If you don't mind staying a short driving distance away from the downtown area, this is for you. When we arrived, the front desk staff were friendly. They gave our children each a moose stuffed animal and a book. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. There is a pool on location that is a great option when you have kids. We would definitely recommend this hotel and return there in the future.

This is a large motel located 2 miles from the national park entrance and 4 miles from downtown Bar Harbor. We had no trouble finding parking downtown but did, on the advice of hotel staff, always grab the first spot we saw. There really isn't anything in walking distance of the hotel but there are a couple of restaurants on the way into town. The breakfast selection was extensive. The room was a bit musty at first but the smell dissipated as the A/C ran. The room was clean and large. The beds were comfortable. We would stay again.

Best Western is about 15 min from Bar Harbor but is nicely located to visit the park and town. We spent a week here, it was a great motel, super value and very well kept. The rooms have been renovated and have a fridge, microwave, dinette, and good linens with comfortable beds. The breakfast is awesome, cereal, oatmeal, waffles, eggs, pastries, they have everything and the dining room is nice, but can get busy at 8am so go early or wait until after 8:30. The owners were super nice, they gave our kids a stuffed moose each and a book about Maine, and gave us a coffee mug. There is smores every night 630 to 730pm at the firepit, there is a heated pool, laundry facility, a renovated playground for kids, and it is close to mini golf, the brewery, the winery and several restaurants. Highly recommended for families.

Free breakfast every morning was very good. Place was quiet and close to main entrance to Acadia National Park and not too far from Bar Harbor shops. We enjoyed our stay there although beds were too hard for us. We should have spoke up since we found out afterwards they have double pillow top beds which would have been more suitable for us. Regardless the stay was great and we would stay there again if we are in the area.

This hotel was a great place to stay for our annual get-away. In a quiet spot, there was no need to worry about heavy traffic noises interrupting the quiet. The Continental breakfast is good for those who are breakfast "eaters" with a good selection of "eats" Since we are 2nd shifters, it was a bit difficult for us to get up that early. [but, none of us are big breakfast eaters anyway] however the times we did make it over, there was plenty to choose from, and the staff was very friendly. This is a great location that is really close to Acadia National Park which was our vacation destination this year, Would definitely recommend this spot to others, and we are planning on a return trip in the future.

I have stayed in a few Best Westerns and this one is by far the best. From a distance, it gives off an appearance of a very basic place, but once you come closer you realize how clean and inviting the place is. Rooms are much more comfortable than the outside of the building suggests, bathrooms are new and everything else is spotless. Pool is heated and clean and most importantly not over chlorinated like most hotel pools are. Fresh coffee and cookies at the front desk all the time, staff is as friendly as you can imagine. Picnic area around the back with chairs and tables, good place to wind down before going to bed. If I'm ever in Bar Harbor again, I'm coming straight back here, not even going to look for another place.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The property is very clean and the owners are putting alot of money into renovating the rooms and the grounds. The breakfast was amazing! Fresh, home-cooked food with a great selection. And warm cookies are at the office every evening. There is a brand new playground and grilling area. The outdoor pool and deck area was also very nice. We would definitely stay again if we ever visit Maine again.

Robin We all thank you for such a glowing review of our property. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and used the free Island Explorer bus service, too! The owners do renovations every off-season and we do listen to guests comments, hence the brand new breakfast house! Thanks so much ! Please come back again ! Regards, Jane

Will definitely stay at this Best Western when returning to Bar Harbor! Room was extremely clean, breakfast was way beyond what I ever expected, many choices to choose from in a dining room that was as big as a restaurant!

This hotel has a great location to intown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park ! The room was spacious enough for 2 ( had a King bed room ) , very clean. The free continental breakfast is a nice added bonus. We had a room on back side away from main road, it was VERY quiet there.

I work in the Hospitality business so new what I would be looking for when I checked in. The Front Desk Staff were friendly and efficient, the breakfast room Staff were exceptional...there was never an empty food item, the Housekeeper kept my room spotless and the Management was beyond professional and always there to assist with any issues. I would definitely stay there again. This is what you are looking for when you go on vacation with your family. There is even s'mores by the playground at night and fresh hot cookies all day long in the Lobby. Breakfast has a great variety.

This place really surprised me and my wife. Everything in the Bar Harbor area is so overpriced but I actually felt I got my $$ worth here. Sure its not downtown BH, or right around the corner, but it is close enough for sure, and very close to Acadia National Park entrance. The rooms were nice and large, old school motel style, park right in front of your own room. The bathrooms have recently been renovated so it made the room feel nice and refreshed. The bed was comfortable, and the a/c worked well considering the heat and humidity that was going on when we visited. Fridge, micro, and coffee maker in the room. The breakfast was in a building right next to the lobby building, and had everything you'd want to get your day started. Oh, and if you check in during evening hours, you get some fresh cookies waiting for you, oh yeah! Just don't arrive too late, they close up (call for hours). This is right in line what you hope for when you book a 2.5 star hotel, best we've stayed at in this category in a long long time.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us! We do have a late arrival box for those that arrive after the office closes and also someone on 24/7 . Thank you for writing such a nice review and please come again! Best wishes, Jane

Pleasantly surprised at this Best Western...great location near Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor; extremely clean; personable, professional and friendly staff in all areas; fine breakfast included in price; nice pool, very comfortable room! The outside of the hotel is fairly standard for the area, but room was nicely appointed, comfortable and immaculate. Will stay again!

"Very good place to stay"

28/07/2016

This is a good place to stay on Desert Island. The rooms and the grounds are kept very clean, rooms are big (we had plenty of space for a family of 4), the price is much better comparing with staying in Bar Harbor proper, and it has a great location less than 5 minutes from the Acadia National Park visitor center. We found it a great base of operations for exploring the island and the various sections of the national park, including Schoonic on the mainland, which was 50 minutes away. Also Bar Harbor is only 10 minutes away by car and we never had any problems with parking the car in the streets for free. You can also take the free Island Explorer bus to/from Bar Harbor and the national park. We didn't realize this but this hotel is not a high-rise. It's a motel, really. We did not find that a problem (you can park your car right in front of your room), but to us the pictures of the hotel did not make that clear. The free breakfast options are great: the waffle makers were a great hit with our children. While we were there the place was very busy and the breakfast room, which is in a separate building, was very busy but eventually we found a place to sit. All in all a great place to stay on the island itself. I can recommend this place.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
We are delighted with your review! Thank you so much for it and for staying with us. We are 2 1/2 miles to the visitor's center and Hull's Cove entrance to the Acadia National Park. It sounds as though you had a great vacation here in Bar Harbor. We hope you will stay with us again soon! Best wishes, Jane

Highly recommend! Stayed for 4 nights. Extremely clean, the beds were fabulous, and the breakfast from 6:30-10:00 is excellent! The staff is helpful and professional. You can tell from the top down, excellence is expected. They even offered a cooking of smores at their fire pit for children one evening. Nice frill. Our room came with a safe, microwave, and refrigerator. Only minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your loyalty to the Acadia Park Inn! We are delighted that you found the new mattresses to be so comfy and the S'mores each evening to be a nice frill. We have also added a Bocce court! We thank you for staying with us for four nights and for this awesome review. We agree, Go Sox! Best wishes, Jane

23/07/2016

Room was very clean and in great condition. The breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts that I have had recently. I liked that it was in a separate building and had plenty of seating. Pool was clean and there was a playground and an area with a fire pit if you wanted to spend time at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful by providing literature about Bar Harbor and things to do. The only down side was there was not a fitness center but we walked outside and I guess when you are close to Acadia National Park they do not think a fitness center is necessary.

JaneK473, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for this great review. We do not have many requests for a fitness center, I guess due to the park being so handy with hiking and biking trails etc. We apologize for not having that for you. We are very pleased that you discovered our new playground and evening S'Mores fire pit. Our housekeeping staff relishes in your comments on the room condition and cleanliness. We hope to see you again soon! Regards, Jane

We've chosen to stay here due to the price since this is Bar Harbor the room rates are pretty steep. I was very impressed with the room size and spotless bathroom I mean for the price you can't go wrong. Check-in was a breeze they also have the schedule for the shuttle bus that takes you around the park for free which conveniently stops right outside the hotel. Breakfast selection was good and service was excellent. Also happy with the wifi strength. I'd definitely come back and stay with them again!

I'm often hesitant to stay in best westerns, unless I'm out west. This one is beautiful, exactly as they are out west. Spacious rooms. Microwave, fridge, nice large tv. Pristine. Honestly the cleanliness of the hotel is outstanding, coming from a bit of a germaphobe that's saying something. New bathrooms as of July 2016, huge tubs. Excellent toiletries. Staff was so kind, knowledgable of the area, absolutely perfect. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It was such a great stay, I'd love to live there. Will gladly work to stay, lol!

While the rooms are clean and satisfactory, the location is fantastic for any visit to Acadia and Bar Harbor! Most of the staff was quite friendly. Breakfast was awesome once again!!! Roughly a 5 minute drive to park entrance and under 10 minutes to reach the town of Bar Harbor. Stayed at the same hotel last year...this year I feel our room was cleaner and in better condition. My kids loved the free cookies and tea during the day.

23/07/2016

I stayed here for 2 nights on a trip to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Not to far from the Acadia Park visitor center but a little far from Bar Harbor (about a 15min drive). Room was clean with parking right outside your door. Lots of variety to choose from with the free breakfast(including 3 waffle makers and different choices of toppings available) and plenty of seating in the breakfast area. The lady at the front desk was very helpful in highlighting different points of interest in the area on a map. I'd probably get a hotel closer to Bar Harbor(some of them have shuttles to downtown) if I visited the area in the future. Parking in downtown Bar Harbor is very difficult and it's a bit of drive to the Best Western. Overall a good value for the area.

Okay location. About a 13 minute drive to bar harbor or anywhere else. Nothing special about the room or pool. Breakfast was bland and tasteless. Staff was extremely nice and helpful at the front desk. Pretty decent but nothing to write home about.

Loved Bar Harbor Maine!

We had a great stay at Best Western Acadia Park Inn. The hotel is convenient to Acadia National Park and the village of Bar Harbor (which is extremely cool!!!!). We traveled with our 12 year old son so the pool was a priority-lovely heated temp and very well maintained pool and patio area-both hotel and pool in sunny location unlike some of the cabin-style accommodations in the area. Free Island Explorer shuttle is great and picks you up right at the front of the hotel. Staff is wonderful-very friendly and knowledgeable, housekeeping does an excellent job. Hotel is quiet and family-oriented, met many others traveling and enjoying Acadia. Rooms simple but clean and in great shape-our bathroom must have been recently remodeled and was super-very clean and nice one-piece tub/shower with lots of shelves. FUN FUN FUN-we have already recommended it to a friend and would definitely stay here again!

Very large, clean, comfortable rooms with small refrigerator and microwave, nice swimming pool, great breakfeast (more than just continental as advertised). Staff all very friendly and courteous. Front desk very helpful with recommendations and helping to navigate the area. Hotel is not in the downtown area and you have to drive or take the free island shuttle, there is a stop right out front, to Acadia National Park or the downtown area. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Rooms are motel style, single floor, drive up rooms. Pay self-service Washer & Dryer available. Downtown Bar Harbor very crowded, mostly restaurants, bars, and tourist shops. Lots of good seafood restaurants with nice water views outside of the downtown area. Acadaia National Park is magnificent. Lots of little parking spots to explore different areas. The 4:30 summer sunrise happening at the top of Cadillac Mountain draws a big crown and parking can be tight. We did one of the horse drawn carriage rides in the park, to be honest a bit boring, on gravel roads under the canopy the whole time, not much views, no wildlife.

I absolutely loved my stay over here. Rooms were super clean, the location was perfect, and the place was priced right. The breakfast was incredible. They had eggs, different kinds of meat every day, waffles, a host of breads and cereal. The breakfast area was quite spacious and looked like it was recently furnished. The staff was great as well. In addition to being extremely gracious, I saw them helping other guests out at several points during my stay. As an example, I witnessed a couple that walked in looking for a room on a sold out night. Rather than this being the end of the story, the front desk volunteered to find them a room at another hotel. Not only did the front desk call a competitor hotel to look for a room, they also helped the couple make the reservation (and then provided directions so they could get there). Now that's first class service. I was there on vacation, and found the place to be very family-friendly. I would absolutely stay here again.

WOW! Thank you! Sometimes people don't see what goes on behind the desk and I am so pleased that you witnessed what happens when we are sold out! Our Best Western staff really are "people who care".

We were extremely satisfied with our stay at the Best Western in Bar Harbor. The comfort level of the bed was superb. They provide a breakfast with a great variety of breakfasts items to choose from and each morning they change the items they offer for breakfast. It is also very convenient to Acadia NP and a shuttle bus runs from their driveway to the NP's visitor's center.

18/07/2016

I recently stayed at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn along with my husband and two boys (12 and 15). What a nice place to stay while visiting Acadia NP. The motel is nestled in a wooded lot and is nicely landscaped. The rooms are clean and well appointed with a microwave, fridge, ironing board and iron (not that I ironed anything!!) Beds and pillows were very comfortable. The daily breakfast included with the room had many choices including hot items (eggs, sausage, home fries, etc,), prepared oatmeal with a variety of toppings, Belgian waffles, cereals and a variety of breads, bagels and pastries. The pool is clean but on the small side. If you are looking for a resort to hang out at all day, this is probably not the right place for you. However, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to sleep with a hearty breakfast included while visiting beautiful Aacadia, this is a great choice! I would definitely go back and would recommend it to friends and family.

We had a recently held our family reunion on Mount Desert Island and stayed at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn. We worked with Janet Koehling (GM) to make the arrangements for 40 of us. Working with Jane, we were able to secure rooms for everyone at a reasonable rate and made use of the breakfast room to hold our nightly meals and gatherings. I and everyone in my family were extremely pleased. The motel rooms were a good size (we were in the 500's unit) and very clean. The rooms include breakfast for 2 with an additional charge for extra persons. The breakfast was plentiful and similar to what you might find at a Hampton Inn. The breakfast area for our nightly gatherings was a wonderful room, large enough for our family and very comfortable. The Jane, Teenia, and the rest of staff were great. They went out of their way to welcome us and ensure we had everything we needed. The hotel is also in a great location with easy access to all the different activities MDI has to offer. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The BW Acadia is located a few miles out of town which turns out to be a plus,,,and you can still easily access the Nat'l Park,Bar Harbour downtown, the other side of the island [quiet side, bays, lobster pounds, and less tourist], or venture downtown to Bar Harbour. Staff was mature, smiling, and helpful! Price I thought was a little high for no frills BW- but then again it's tourist season and probably similar for area and time of year.

This was our third time in Bar Harbor and we were so thrilled to find this hotel. The price is much less than the ones closer to town but it's only a 5 minute ride by car and definitely worth it. We were greeted by Joel, the friendliest man you'll ever meet. The first thing he told us was to help ourselves to the never ending supply of cookies and hot beverages! He even went so far as to pour my husband a cup of coffee while he was sitting in the lobby using the computer! He really made us feel like we were company visiting his house! Jane and Mary were also so helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. The free breakfast had much more than most hotels offer. Make your own waffles, eggs, sausages, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruits, yogurts, muffins, bagels, hard boiled eggs, etc. Really surprising for a small hotel. Heated pool and playground for children. You won't be disappointed with this hotel. It's not a fancy hotel but I'd still rate it 5 stars!!!!!!!! We really felt so welcome and comfortable here!

This is the place to stay in Bar Harbor if you want reasonable rates and a clean place to stay. We stayed for 3 nights and were extremely satisfied. The hotel is much less expensive than other hotels in town. It's a 5 mile drive from the main part of town but well worth the 5 minutes it takes to get there. The staff is the friendliest you will ever encounter. They all go out of their way to make sure you're happy and have everything you need. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. Free breakfast was excellent and included make your own waffles, sausages, fruit, eggs, muffins, oatmeal, cereals, potatoes, hash, hard boiled eggs and much more. Outdoor pool was heated and very clean. Free cookies and hot beverages greet you in the lobby! Really a great place to stay. Make sure to see Joel behind the desk. The friendliest person you'll ever meet. My husband was using the computer in the lobby and Joel came over and poured him a cup of coffee! Jane the manager and Mary also aimed to please. Can't say enough about this place. Don't waste your money on the pricier fancy hotels in town. This place is great!

We planned a night stay at Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor and found that the Best Western had rooms available, and offered AAA discount. The lobby of the hotel is very inviting and beautifully decorated. The front desk staff at check-in were very friendly. We booked two separate rooms with king beds. Our room was newly renovated, and my daughter's room was nice but didn't look like it was as updated as ours yet. Bed was very comfortable which is always a plus! The bathroom area was wonderful...I liked the sink being separated area from the toilet and shower. This hotel offers continental breakfast...this is more than the typical continental breakfast. The breakfast seating area was very nice, and the food selection was great! The two staff members working the morning of our stay kept the area very clean, and will stocked with food. The front desk staff during our check-out were very friendly, and made it easy to check-out. Will come back again, and hopefully try out the pool and sit at the tables near the pool (which looked like a nice area to relax).

This motel is old fashioned but it was a great place to stay at a good rate. The rooms are actually quite large. The cable has a lot of channels (including TVMonde - it was nice to have French tv for my vacation!). The pool is nice and decent temperature. The breakfast was good - they had scrambled eggs and meat, and then a variety of pastries, muffins, etc. The front desk staff during the morning/day were very friendly and offered great advice. The explorer bus that goes around the island actually will stop in front of the hotel. Definitely would stay here again!

Because I travel frequently for business, I often stay at very fancy hotels. I stay at many other hotels because I travel often for pleasure too. Best Western Acadia Park puts many very many fancy hotels to shame. The staff is terrific (they gave me many good location suggestions), the room is spacious and maintained very well, and the continental breakfast is actually a lot more than just continental. It included eggs, meat, waffles, and lots of other stuff too. The free coffee and cookies is a nice addition too. Oh yes, the rates are very reasonable too! Best Western Acadia Park is located very close to the Hulls Cove entrance to Acadia, and conveniently on ME 3 which leads right into Bar Harbor and many other good locations.

First of all, was extremely happy that I was able to get a room a days before the 4th of July weekend, I had stayed at the Acadia location before and was just as happy with the service this time too. Lots had improved, such as the breakfast hall, with lot more food, Make your own waffles!!!! the lobby offered many different refreshments too. I definitely will stay here again next time too, so close to all the area attractions.

"Clean & Comfortable"

03/07/2016

We stayed here for 3 nights while we visited the Bar Harbor area and Acadia National Park. Very clean and comfortable accommodations. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. Only 5 min drive from the park entrance and about a 10 min drive to Bar Harbor. The continental breakfast was great. A separate building just for breakfast. They had pastries, yogurt, boiled eggs, cereal, coffee, juice, biscuits and gravy, eggs, self make waffles, bagels, toast, oatmeal, etc...very good selection. The staff was friendly and courteous. They even called us to make sure we were on our way. There was a heated pool but we never used it. The hotel looked a bit deceiving when we pulled up because its an older property and we were not sure what to expect when we got to our room but we were pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and spacious. It had a coffee maker, coffee, microwave and a refrigerator. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if ever back in the area.

So glad we found this wonderful Best Western. It's in the old style of "motels", single stories sprawling around a large property and could stand some exterior updates. But the rooms are spacious, clean, and the free breakfast is the best we've had in a long time! This is about a 8 minute drive from the Visitor's Center at Acadia and the perfect home base for a trip there. Nice looking pool and the staff was exceptionally friendly. Free tea, coffee, and cocoa in the evenings. We would definitely stay here again!

The room has a disaster smell, I don't recommend. I wanted to run a way. The staff is great and very helpful. The beds are comfortable for us and for the children but the room is very sad and stiffing. The bathroom is not so bad but I need shoes to go inside

We stayed at this Best Western (BW) for 3 nites while visiting the sites in Bar Harbor. This property is the best BW we have stayed in throughout our travels. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. They accommodated early check-in without issue, and offered coffee/tea all day with cookies in the afternoon. Upon request, the staff will make fresh popcorn in the evening. This BW has a separate, spacious breakfast room. The breakfast offered a range of options - cereals, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, etc. The staff also brought around warm scones or freshly baked goods. The property is an easy drive into town ... ~ 10 mins from the center of town and 5 minutes from the entrance of Acadia Park. The Best Western Acadia Park Inn offers the full package - good locations, wonderful property, and welcoming staff!

Great place to stay! Very welcoming & helpful staff. Free Breakfast has something for everyone: eggs, waffle station, fruit, variety of breads/muffins, yogurt...cannot leave hungry! While the property is older, they have done a nice job updating it. Laundry facilities, pool, playground, fridge & microwave in room. It's nice & quiet.. Minus is that it's away from town...few restaurant to choose from nearby so had to go into town for dinner & parking can be tough to find at popular times. Definitely recommend this place!

B W Bar Harbor was up to usual B W standard. Only criticism, which can be easily corrected by altering layout, was the waffle maker being located in a corner, where only one person could get access to it and associated ingredients at a time.

"Fabulous place to stay when visiting Acadia NP"

5
27/06/2016

We found a great deal for a room with 2 queen beds and were totally happy with our 2-night stay. Location: It is right on State Hwy 3 on Mount Desert Island heading into Bar Harbor but it isn't in Bar Harbor itself – this meant there was no crazy traffic or difficulty parking! Plenty of car parking on site. Reception: The staff were friendly and helpful, and the reception lobby had some couches to relax, newspapers, a computer terminal, and free coffee/tea and cookies! There were plenty of brochures to browse with ideas for activities in Acadia NP. What a warm welcome! Facilities: Free wifi was fantastic! There was a swimming pool but we didn't use it. There are vending machines around the site selling snacks and drinks, as well as ice machines. Breakfast was included, and boy, we were impressed! There was enormous variety: hot savory food (eg. eggs, sausages, oats where you can add your own toppings), hot sweet food (eg. make-your-own waffles with your own toppings), different cereal varieties, sweet pastries, fresh fruit or fruit salad, muffins and different breads for toasting, and an assortment of drinks. It was awesome – a great way to stock up before a day of hiking in Acadia NP! Room: Really spacious with plenty of storage, a bar fridge, in-room safe, and a microwave – extremely handy and convenient for late night snacks and keeping drinks cool for our hikes. The desk and chairs were great, and there were plenty of charging points. They even had a “welcome kit” upon arrival including important maps and tourist activity suggestions. The bed was super comfortable. Bathroom: The toilet and shower were in a separate room. Plenty of towels and great amenities including a make-up remover towel! The hand basin, ironing board, more spare towels, and a hanging area for clothes were in an ante-room before the toilet and shower. This meant that someone could be using the sink or putting clothes away whilst someone else was in the shower/toilet. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at BW Acadia Inn and would have no hesitation in recommending it as a great place to stay if you are visiting Acadia NP!

So glad we stayed here instead of staying in the midst of the frenetic, overly-crowded center of Bar Harbor. Hotel is clearly CAREFULLY maintained which is always reassuring. There is no ocean view, but the hotel is surrounded by forest and because the hotel wings are all one-story, there is no bad room in the place. Breakfasts were a bit better than I've come to expect from most 'continental breakfasts' and the all staff (desk, reception, housekeeping) were friendly and willing to help by offering answers to any questions.

I loved it here. Not too expensive. We had a continental breakfast of eggs and other choices everyday - better choices than dessert breads and muffins. I told someone we were on our honeymoon, and so we came back to find sparking cider with wine glasses and a card signed by the hotel staff. Wow, the more expensive hotel we stayed at earlier didn't even do that.

Since my wife had to work we were very pleased that the Wifi connectivity was excellent! Breakfast was very good and the facility was neat and clean.

This location is conveniently close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. We had a King Bed with Refrigerator and Microwave. The bed was comfortable and the room size was excellent - we were able to store our bikes inside with plenty of room to move around. It was surprisingly quiet even though the room faced the road. The only complaint was the lighting, it was dim and hard to see in the main area. The bathroom and sink area was nicely lit. The check in was easy and they always have coffee available. They also had cookies around 3 pm. Breakfast was very good - I would say better than a Holiday Inn Express. Different choices daily and tasty! The staff was very friendly. The weather was nice enough that we enjoyed the outdoor pool which was clean. Also used the laundry facility which was conveniently on site. Parking was in front of the room. Highly recommend staying here!

We really enjoyed staying here last summer. We were travelling with a 13 and 15 yr. old so the pool was nice and the breakfast each morning saved us a bunch of $. Was it gourmet? No, but certainly adequate enough for my not so picky eaters. We enjoyed Acadia, the towns, mini golf and ice cream all within a very short drive. We would stay here again. The only reason it does not get 5 stars is the internet, which is iffy to non existant in the rooms but usable in the main office. We like our internet for posting pics at night, talking to friends back home etc.

02/06/2016

We booked this Motel for a 30 year anniversary get away. We did get a good price but I was for a moment taken aback when I say this place. It was not what I expected to see from a Best Western.. has the look of one of the roadside Motor Lodges of a bygone era. upon checking in, coffee, Tea and cookies were laid out in the lobby. We reserved a room with a king side bed which was very comfortable. The quilt was wrapped between to sheet making a duvet like cover which I really appreciate and wish more motels would do that. The one negatives the rooms were scented with Febreze, which I did not care for but upon mentioning it they stopped it for the duration of our stay. The front desk also so told me that on future visits just tell them in advance and they will not spray the room Breakfast comes with the room. It was a nice offering coffee, tea . several juices, cereals, muffins and breads, waffles, fruit cocktail, eggs, sausage and another hot dish such as sausage gravy and biscuits. I did not care for the quality of the yogurts or egg dishes but I was still able to select breakfast items to satisfy me. My husband needs Gluten Free and the staff was most helpful. If you ask they may even come up with a GF muffin or two. They try hard to please.

We stayed one night in early May on the way home from College visits. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We knew we were getting a good deal on the cost of the room so we only expected an average hotel stay. What we got was a good hotel stay, and great service from the front staff. Upon our arrival we were greeted with cookies and hot chocolate which was perfect because the temperature had dropped and it was in the 50's. The hotel staff was great in recommending a restaurant in Bar Harbor to go to as well as directions to Cadillac Mountain. The room we had was over by the pool and was very clean and roomy. The bathroom was large, had a very large shower. Towels were plentiful and the heat worked great. Breakfast was good in the morning and even included some hot items as well as typical continental items. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again in the future.

This beautifully renovated facility is led by a terrific staff and people who care. Important staff members most definitely include the maintenance,cleaning and breakfast "managers."

The fridge,microwave,iron,hair dryer,safe and ample space along with the coffee maker were excellent amenities.. The grounds were very well maintained and pleasant. The location was actually quite good,being a couple miles or so above the Hull's Cove entrance to Acadia and within a few miles of the dining places we visited. We stayed for three nights and we shall return!

25/05/2016

An out-of-the way motel - not a "real" Best Western. I thought I'd booked a good hotel, in Bar Harbor, but found this "motel" miles outside the city/town/village. There are so many other options in and around Bar Harbor, that I would never, ever stay at this place again. Not that it was bad, just way out of town, and disappointing. The actual room was fine, and the bed extremely comfortable. However the "delicious continental breakfast" wasn't that delicious... Yes there were small cheese omlettes, but not good. Tiny sausage patties, but cheap, cheap cheap, and bad hash brown patties. Plus the coffee had a strange taste. The actual breakfast facility was quite good. There was also an ice machine not working. So, building appearance and location were not worth the money.

We went to Mount Desert Island last weekend. We chose Best Western Acadia Park Inn basically because of the brand. We were more than happy with our choice. Although the outside of the property is not glamorous (as are some of the other newer hotels), the rooms, location, grounds, service, staff, breakfast, are all great. We are a family of four and the room (2 queen beds) was more than adequate. Very comfortable beds with nice bedding, nice towels and toiletries. Bathroom itself is a little dated, however it was spotless and spacious enough for it's purpose. (sink-vanity is in a separate area allowing 2 people to use the "bathroom" at the same time). Fridge/Microwave/Mini-safe are all standard. We were allocated room #411 which is to the rear of the (all ground level-motel style) property. There is a brand new swing-set across the lawn from this block of rooms, so if you have kids that would enjoy that, then this room would be great. Breakfast is in a dedicated building near the lobby and central to all rooms. Breakfast served until 10 and there are lots of options. It was very busy, but we enjoyed all the breakfast choices, which vary from day-to-day. Front desk staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. Check in and out was easy. Coffee/tea and hot chocolate are available in the lobby. (and cookies too!) Apparently front desk is closed overnight (and a number is provided in case of emergencies). Not an issue for us. What was an issue (for our teenage kids) was the wifi-signal was not strong. It may have been because of the distance from our room to the lobby. If you need WIFI, you might want to enquire about a room closer to the router! The outdoor pool is small (and I imagine it gets very crowded). It opens next weekend (memorial day) for the season. The hotel is about 4 or 5 miles from Bar Harbor itself. Not within walking distance for sure, but it was nice to be away from the crowded streets/parking lots of BH. We would certainly recommend this Acadia Park Inn.

What a delight to read your review , especially first thing in the morning! We are pleased to say that our Wi-Fi has been strengthened by a new system installed on May 17th to go along with the only system available to the island. The upload and download is awesome now. Just to clarify for any potential guests reading this, there is someone on duty 24/7 with just a dial "0" away or doorbell at the front entrance. Our new playground will be completed within a week or two and we are excited to offer it!It seems your experience was overall very good and we appreciate your recommendation to others. We hope you will come back again this summer. Thank you so much! Best wishes to you all, Jane

Spent 4 nights at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn and I will most definitely stay there again in the future. The staff were welcoming, the room was clean & the bed quite comfortable! The 1st night I had difficulty with a loud, inconsiderate trio in the next room of which I had to report to the manager. Although the manager (I believe her name was Jane) extended her apologies, the most impressive part was she wasted no time in addressing the issue. The next 3 nights I could hear a pin drop :) The continental breakfast was nice as well- it offered a nice variety of foods which served well as fuel before hitting the trails in Acadia!

I am so pleased that you brought the noise issue directly to me so that I could remedy the situation immediately. Our guests have 24/7 help whenever needed.

Fantastic experience, hotel staff is courteous and helpful. Hotel itself is clean and fresh. Breakfast was great with many options. Check-in was smooth and suggestions were offered for what to do at Acadia. Check out was extra special since I wanted to add a night but they were booked, Mary helped us find a place near and got them to honor the rate we had at Best Western. A fantastic experience overall.

One of the Best Check-ins that I have experienced. All the paperwork was ready and received a thank you letter from the Manager. The room was clean and inviting and everything worked as expected. We had a king size bed that was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious each morning with plenty of room in the kitchen area and dining area. Check out was as easy as the check-in. I had shipped a package to me in advance of the stay and it was waiting for me and one of the clerks even brought it out to the car for me. Only a couple of miles to the downtown Bar Harbor area or about a dozen miles back to the mainland city of Ellsworth. Overall a great place to spend the night or a week.

I often travel with an elderly relative. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. The value is good, the location handy to the entrance to Acadia, good breakfasts served by lovely people, and clean, comfy rooms. The decor is a bit dated but I can forgive that for the rest of the amenities the hotel offers. And, most importantly, everyone I interacted with who was connected to the hotel was really nice, helpful, and went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of.

Beds were comfy and rooms were well taken care of.

Decided to make an off season stop at Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor ME as a side trip to see our daughter's graduation from UMaine. Let me just say that the staff really puts the Best in Best Western. They are incredible. They take pride in what they do and they are certainly professional. When we arrived I ask the reception attendant, Emilia if she could recommend a few local restaurants, Emilia immediately recommended three based on her personal experience and knowledge of the Bar Harbor area and during our stay we made sure to visit all of them and all three were excellent. The rooms were comfortable, clean and modern. The grounds were well maintained and the complimentary breakfast was better than anything you would be served in restaurant setting. I must say this again, the staff here is truly interested in you and making your stay the best it can be. We will be back

"A good choice near the park..."

18/05/2016

First off, the staff at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn is maybe the nicest, most helpful, most gracious staff I've experienced anywhere. From check in to check out, the front desk people and breakfast staff were uniformly helpful and... just nice. In a remarkable way. With that said, this is a pretty standard Best Western. It's a motel, not a hotel. Pull up to your front door. Typical shoebox room layout with the hanging bar, sink and shower at the far end of the room. Beds were fine. Not great. But fine. No pillow top. No deluxe sheets. In fact, my sheets were nearing the end of their life, pilling a bit. But again, the bed was fine. The shower head was good. Water pressure was good. WiFi worked fine. The complementary breakfast each morning had lots of options, including three fruit topping options for the waffles. Nice touch (next time, add a can of whipped cream). Round, McMuffin style scrambled egg thing if you wanted to make your own sausage sandwich. They have worked hard to make the breakfast better than average, and have succeeded. Did I mention the people were really nice? The rooms are dated but clean and well kept. The TV is a flat panel with full cable. Bottom line, the property is not where the bigger chains are in terms of the beds, sheets and pillows. But you're not checking in here to spend time in the room. It's a place to sleep after a day full of fun in the park or in Bar Harbor. And for that, it works just fine. Oh, and the people....

Located just outside of Bar Harbor on plenty of acreage. The motel has several buildings and the it's a traditional motel with the doors on the outside of the building. The check in was quick and the ladies had plenty of info if you wanted it. The room was clean and the bed was big and high with lots of pillows. Our TV wouldn't work so they came down right away and fixed quickly. Quiet place with a breakfast in the am. Free Wi-fi

We made a spontaneous trip to Acadia this past weekend and stayed at the Best Western. It was only 2 miles from the entrance of the park which was super convenient and only about a 5 mile drive to downtown Bar Harbor. Warm welcome and great directions about the area. Rooms were nice and big, bathroom was great, enough hot water and great water pressure. Breakfast was included which was excellent. Great value for a great weekend!

25/04/2016

The weather looked really great for this past weekend, and I thought I'd head up to Bar Harbor/Acadia before the tourists descend upon the beauty and wonder of my home state :) Since I intended to trailer my motorcycle up, I was looking for lodging with adequate parking, yet still close enough to the Village and Acadia. This place was great for what I needed. The staff was super friendly and accommodating - they had just recently opened for the season so I wasn't quite sure what to expect of the room - would it be musty, dusty, damp? None of the above - I had a very comfortable room that was nicely appointed and included a microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator and an in-room safe. The bathroom had a fan (a big plus with me, as I have encountered so many newer or renovated rooms with no bathroom fan!) and was spit-spot clean. They offered free wi-fi and it worked like a charm. This place does not have an ocean view, but it does have a pool, laundry facilities, vending machines and a brand new building where they serve the included continental breakfast. There are picnic tables and grills in the back and it is very well-lit at night. I didn't care that it didn't have the view, as I knew I would be out and riding around in Acadia all day - and there is where you will get the views of a lifetime...it never disappoints...what a wonder!

"Huge room with inconvenient access"

3
25/01/2016

This is a very particular review, as it's related to an annex where the rooms (and the access) are different from the main building. All rooms in the main building are the classic motel type, where you park in front of your door. This separate area has around 10 rooms you can't park in front and one of its sides faces the pool (mine, of course) – Here it's even worst as there's a pool deck and you have to climb two steps with your luggage. As soon as I checked in I complained about all that but I was told those were the best rooms (king size) and the clerk also pointed me to a ramp that made easier to bring the luggage in. All that said I have to admit the room was in fact big with a full size sofa, plus a single seat couch, a big TV, fridge, microwave, a computer table and, of course, the king size bed. The bathroom is also huge. There's a real warning here though: I was there at the last week of October and it was cold, so nobody used the pool that was right in front of my door (and window). It's probably not too wise to stay in this section in July. In the end I was ready to admit I was cranky at the check-in as pushing the luggage through the ramp wasn't so bad and the room was nice. Too bad Karma kicked in and two days after leaving I found out they charged my CC for the entire stay, even though it was confirmed by the clerk it was all paid for through Expedia and that she wanted my CC just for incidentals (normal procedure). I would love to believe this was a coincidence but I think someone decided to ‘give me a lesson' – theory reinforced by the fact my complaint about the room was noted on my file and read back to me by the person I've contacted to handle my reimbursement.

acadiajane, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I apologize for the personal inconveniences that you have described. We are please that you found the room to your liking with a queen sized sofa, lounge chair, large TV, fridge, microwave, computer table and, of course, the king size bed and the large bathroom. We do hope to se you again in 2016. Regards, Jane

05/01/2016

We have stayed at this hotel twice now (in the autumn both times), and thoroughly enjoyed both visits. Its setting among the pines was what attracted our attention initially, so we gave it a try (in previous years we stayed in Bangor or Ellsworth). The included breakfast is unusually good for an American hotel, with many items to choose from. The dining area is pleasant, even when busy. At least one of the breakfast staff members is very helpful for visitors of the nearby national park (Acadia). The hotel office has interesting books/magazines, and extra coffee/tea/hot chocolate. The location of the hotel makes it great for being able to get to Acadia N. P. or Bar Harbor quickly, but without the hassle of Bar Harbor traffic at the hotel. Then only downsides, and they're not much, are that the rooms are somewhat dated, and the laundry "room" is outdoors.

acadiajane, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for being a loyal guest of Best Western! We very much appreciate that you have stayed multiple times with us here at the Acadia Park Inn. We are indeed very close to the Acadia National Park entrance and visitors center and only four and one half miles to the downtown waterfront. Our serene setting affords our guests a relaxing atmosphere after they have explored the park and downtown with the hustle and bustle. We are always updating our rooms and this year is no exception! We look forward to having you visit with us again! Thank you. Best wishes, Jane

This hotel is way out of Bar Harbor and has no ocean views. If you want to drive 5 miles to get into town and be located amongst trees, it is probably fine. We checked out the rooms and found them a time warp. We decided not to stay and found many hotels with vacancies and ocean views for the same price much closer to town.

Quiet location a few miles out of town away from the crowds in Bar Harbor. Met my request for a quiet room, at the back of the complex, with a great selection of maps on the bed when I checked in so I didn't have to search them out elsewhere. Breakfast was good with lots of choices and changing hot items each day, including corned beef and hash with poached eggs one morning. Friendly, helpful staff, at the front desk and in the breakfast room. Carole gave me some good suggestions for walks on the "quiet side" of the island that were very helpful for my last day of exploring. I liked the big sink in my room, with shelf underneath for toiletries. (I stayed here three nights in mid-September. Missed my chance to do the Best Western review so doing it on Trip Advisor instead.)

The inn is not in a bad location and not too far from downtown Bar Harbor, but I was disappointed in our room. It was clean, but not well furnished for a Best Western. Our room was back (not facing the highway) and to the side of the complex and very quiet. The breakfast was adequate. The staff could not have been friendlier and helpful and took time to give us information on the area and even the times cruise ships were expected as that can make a huge difference to the crowds on the island.

We were very satisfied and comfortable at this facility. Helpful and friendly staff: welcoming reception and their breakfast hostess, Carole T. was wonderful. Started each day with a hearty breakfast in a separate single building, nicely set up and decorated. Breakfast was beautifully displayed and varied each day. We had scrambled, boiled, cheese omelet eggs, maple syrup sausages, breakfast patties, biscuits and gravy, home fries, cold and hot cereal, fresh fruits, fruit salad, assorted pastries, bagels, and breads, yogurt, waffle, hash browns, oatmeal, coffee, assorted juices and teas. Homemade, delicious cookies after 3:00 p.m. in the lobby area. This hotel is a quiet, rustic and expansive property: single story facility, so no elevator is needed. Grounds are kept clean. Excellent location to use as a hub to visit Bar Harbor town and Acadia National Forest. *Nice touch: a night light in the bathroom is provided for our convenience and safety.

My husband and I just got back from a road trip to New England. Our main destination was to visit Acadia National Park. I chose the Best Western Acadia based on TripAdvisor reviews. I am so glad we did!!! It was so close to the park just a few miles. It was clean, staff was very courteous and friendly and the breakfast buffet was great. Carole who worked in the breakfast area was fantastic. Not only was she such a friendly person but she gave great advice on places to visit in the park. We would definasterly recommend stsayi g at this location. Close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor town. We were lucky to get here just days before everything closed for the season. If you go into Bar Harbor check out the Sides Street Cafe. Great lobster rolls and soups!

When I first booked this hotel I was disappointed because the hotels I wanted to stay at in Bar Harbor were full. That turned out to be fortunate for me. From my arrival in the late afternoon I was very impressed with the property. The two ladies working the front desk were very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure to inform me that hot cookies would be out in a few minutes. I then checked into my room in the back which was quite large and had a very comfortable bed and a large bathroom. After dropping off my items and picking up a couple of cookies I headed off for Acadia National Park. This is where I really liked where the hotel was located. You didn't have to go all the way into Bar Harbor to take the roads into the park. It is only about 5-10 minutes to reach the park entrance or downtown Bar Harbor from the hotel. This way you can avoid a lot of the traffic if you just want to go into the park. I was also very impressed with the breakfast they served. A lot of different foods were available. One of the best I have ever seen put on by a hotel. I think if you stay here you will be really pleased.

We stayed at the Acadia Park Inn several years ago and it was such a good experience we choose it again! And --- were not disappointed! We like the privacy and the ability to park right outside the door of our room. The too was clean and sparkling! The bed was very comfortable. Coffee and cookies in the lobby were an afternoon treat! The breakfast was full of variety and seemed a step above other hotel free breakfasts! I am always happy if I can make a waffle! Good protein choices including hard boiled eggs. The maple sausage the second day was delicious! We really enjoyed the breakfast room which was new since out last stay. The best part about breakfast was the wonderful woman who not only kept things going on the food side, but was a wonderful hostess for her guests! We felt that we were guests in her home! Just Great! We will return! Although we didn't use them, we did notice washers and dryers were available for guest use. A bonus for many travelers!

The Best Western Acadia Park Inn might look a little old-fashioned from the outside. It is all one story and nestled off the road like a motel of the past. But inside, this is a terrific place to stay. The lighting in the room was bright without being harsh. I could finally see into my suitcase! The room was fresh and clean with a comfortable, not stuffy, feel to the place. The breakfast room is amazing! You will love to eat there each morning. We did. Clean, efficient, and like a small restaurant in design. The food service is in a separate area of the building. Everyone was knowledgeable, efficient, and very friendly. Stay here when you visit Acadia National Park.

Large clean room with everything you need. Stayed three nights only had a neighbour on one night but could easily hear their voices. Otherwise very quiet comfy bed lots of choice for breakfast (inluding Carols gorgeous coffee cake one morning) Great situation for Arcadia Park a day not too far from Bar HarBournemouth for evening meal

Conveniently located off of Highway 3 on the edge of Bar Harbor and a few miles from Acadia Nat'l Park. Staff was very friendly and nice. Breakfast was free and had the typical continental fare but also had hot food (eggs, sausages, potatoes and waffles). Downtown Bar Harbor was close enough if you wanted to get out for breakfast as well as for any other meal. Rooms were relatively clean and in working order. Staff was very friendly.

It's obvious that this is a well managed hotel. Every aspect of our stay was excellent. A pleasant experience from check in to check out. Room and bathroom were immaculate. Coffee and Popcorn were available in the lobby in the evening. The complimentary breakfast was above average, but Carole, who runs the kitchen, goes above and beyond to ensure everything is perfect and every guest has exactly what they need. Carole also informed us of the cruise ships' schedules so we could plan our time in Bar Harbor to avoid the mad rush of the cruise passengers. Don't forget to "pin" your hometown on their maps in the dining room. All the staff is friendly and helpful. This was the finest Best Western we've ever visited.

Good experience, from the Front Desk staff, Breakfast Room staff Caroline's helpful hints, cookies to snack on at the end of the day and so on. Room was quiet and has all amenities you need. Mini-fridge (froze everything), microwave, wifi signal was strong. Bed a little soft for my preference. All Good! Would stay again.

"Great Location"

21/10/2015

Stayed here from Sept 23 to 25. Location was great for Acadia and even to get into Bar Harbor. Breakfast was typical Best Western food with a selection of cereals, oatmeal, teas, coffee, some potatoes, etc. It was nice they switched the foods up. However no gluten free options. It was a little disappointing that they are still using paper plates as well. Rooms were decent size and clean. Could hear the person in the room next to us snoring...

"Stick a pin in it..."

We enjoyed our three night stay here. Check in was uneventful, the room was standard, but had everything we needed. The fridge made it easy to store extra drinks and food. Breakfast was great with rotating hot items so we had something new each day. Be sure and meet "Carole". She made everyone feel welcome each morning and was able to offer great advice on seeing the sights. You could tell she loved the area and meeting people from all over the world! She will encourage you to stick a pin in the wall map denoting your home. Would go back just to see her!

Check in was pleasant and prompt. Room was exactly what we needed for the 3 of us. Beds were comfortable and had nice duvets instead of the old hairy horse blankets of the past. Microwave, small fridge and safe were good. The only concern was the TV, which was a nice flat screen but the programming was not in HD so the picture was distorted and fuzzy. Resetting it to "set by program" put the picture back to its original form, but was much smaller than the TV and even less clear. But then, we didn't come there for the TV. The breakfast was very good with very attentive and pleasant staff that kept the food coming. The eating area appeared to be built specifically for that purpose and was very well setup and maintained. I would stay there again

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay for us on Tripadvisor! I apologize for your issues with the TV and I will look into that. Generally we do not have any fuzzy channels but of course, it can happen I do hope you will come back and stay with us again. Thank you! Best wishes, Jane

This is well located just outside Bar Harbor township and offers very satisfactory motel accommodation, with friendly service. Don't raise your expectations too high however: the bathrooms are tiny and plasticky and the buffet breakfast not very good (in our opinion - maybe we're too fussy!).

acadiajane, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Dear Tim Thank you for your review. I am sorry that we did not meet or exceed your expectations. Some bathrooms are larger than others.

A nice stay at this motel. Clean enough room, would have preferred the bathroom and sink area to be the same. It is hard to wash up without disturbing your partner. Also like every other hotel or motel we stayed at on this trip there is is no make-up mirror in the room. The cleaning staff forgot to replace toiletries on occasion. Nice Lobby with cookies, hot drinks and a fireplace in the afternoon.

Dear Debbie J Thank you for your honest review and I appreciate your letting me know of your dislikes.

Very knowledgeable, service-minded staff, especially Amanda at the front desk. Rooms were very clean, easily accessible, comfortable, and quiet, even though our room faced the highway.Well-maintained/landscaped property under good management. Well-stocked and clean complimentary breakfast bar was fitting way to start the day before our hike in Acadia National Park, which was just a few miles down the road. The evening we checked in and asked about places to eat, Amanda recommended that we consider the Chart Room. We did, and were not disappointed.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in October. Decor was a little dated, but it didn't bother us as the room was very clean and bed was super comfortable. Parking was directly out the door of your room. Breakfast offerings were varied from day to day with certainly enough choices. The hotel is located outside of the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor so it made for a nice place to retreat to after a day of touring and hiking. It was certainly was a great choice for the area and the value. Kudos to ALL the staff as everyone is friendly and helpful.

Best Western Acadia Park Inn is a very nice Inn to stay if you are in the area. It is a typical Best Western hotel, but has nice grounds and has a hot and cold continental breakfast. It is very close to the entrance to Acadia National Park, which is nice. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. They have a laundry area to do laundry if needed. We enjoyed our stay there, it was quiet and the room was nice.

I have never taken the time to write a review, but we had such great service at this hotel I wanted to take time to give them kudos. We visited the first of Aug 2015 and it was just as nice as all the great reviews I has read previously. First of all, it is out of the downtown hustle and bustle and traffic of Bar Harbor, but just by approx 5 miles. The hotel offers the best breakfast I have ever had at a hotel. The menu changes daily, but we had eggs, sausage, waffles, corned beef hash, breakfast potatoes, fruit, yogurt, toast, etc. The staff is completely wonderful. Teenia was so helpful with making the reservations and helping us in person when we arrived. You can tell she loves people and her job. The hotel room was clean and quaint. You can tell it is an older hotel, but we experienced no problems during our stay. Each afternoon cookies and popcorn were made which was a treat after a long day hiking in Acadia National Park. We would definitely stay here again. The price was reasonable and the service was great.

acadiajane, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Dear Kimberly B It is always music to our ears to hear that a former guests enjoyed their stay so much that they plan to stay with us again when in the area! Teenia is awesome with all guests and she loves meeting the public. I am very pleased you mentioned her by name. Thank you for this super review and for taking the time to make an exception for us and making us your first! We sure do appreciate all the “kudos”!!! My best to you, Jane

"A nice place close to the the Park"

13/10/2015

At about 2.5 miles from the Visitor center, this is close to the Park. Also it is on State Highway 3 so you don't need to get into the crowded area of the town. That for me is a bug plus. The room was clean and had all the regular trappings. I liked having a microwave in the room as it gave me the independence from having to go to a restaurant every single time. I've also liked the breakfast they provide in the morning. They have a pretty good spread and it certainly is filling. I was able to park right in front of my room and this was an added bonus. It helped me well when it rained. Also all the staff was very pleasant and helpful That said, this place does have a dated feel and I did not enjoy the decor of the room. Also it had an old air conditioner which was felt a little dusty. I must say having a better room would have improved the rating of this place further.

"Large motel style inn, with dark rooms"

3
13/10/2015

As a previous reviewer said, this is basically a large motel, slightly dated. In the block we stayed in, all the rooms are long and thin, with only a single small window. But that doesn't matter as you would want to keep your curtains drawn, being at ground level with the walkway immediately outside the window. It was clean and pleasant inside, nothing objectionable. Walls are thin, and there was a lot of noise from the one next door, even though they weren't being particularly raucous. Breakfasts were terrible! Day one's egg was scrambled - a solid homogenous lump! Day two's egg was a strange perfect flat semicircle, completely hard, with a yellow blob in the middle. Add in the paper plates and plastic cutlery and ... well ... yuk.

"Average Best Western"

12/10/2015

The outside of the hotel does look dated, but the grounds are kept up very nicely. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very average, exactly what you may expect from an older Best Western. The property is "motel" style, (the door opens to the parking lot) which I usually do not like as single female traveler, but I did feel safe at the hotel. The location is farther out than I had hoped and although it is only a short drive into the little town of Bar Harbor, parking is very, very difficult, so it was a bummer to have to drive in each day. The location of this hotel was also very close in proximity to Acadia National Park.

acadiajane, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Acadia Park Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for posting a review and for being our guest. Thank you for the many compliments. I am happy you felt safe here, because you were.

Thank you. Best wishes, Jane

Best Western is not exactly in town and the outside might look a little dated, but it is an excellent place to stay when visiting Bar Harbor. It is a quality hotel/motel with great internet, breakfast, and accommodations. I love a bath that has the sink area separate from the tub/shower area and also a bathroom exhaust so that the shower steam doesn't haunt me when trying to put on make-up/do hair/etc. Breakfast was outstanding!!! I would most definitely stay here again when visiting Bar Harbor.

"Fantastic Breakfast Bar"

10/10/2015

We stayed here for three nights during a trip to Acadia National Park. The motel is conveniently located right off Highway 3 near Bar Harbor. It was clean, nicely landscaped and in a quiet location. It is a large facility with several one story buildings. Guest parking is located in front of the rooms. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast bar seemed more like a buffet restaurant with food in one room and a large seating seating area in another. The lady in charge of the breakfast did a fantastic job. The menu changed slightly each day and included biscuits & gravy, hash browns, omelettes, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. Salsa and catsup were offered on the side. The breakfast bar also included cereals, muffins, bagels, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. Truly, something for everyone. There is a large outdoor swimming pool and free wi-fi. We would definitely stay there again.

Outstanding in every aspect! Very large room. Great people with lots of personal knowledge of Acadia Park, local food spots, etc. Different breakfast menu each morning. Something you don't often see. Older buildings with outside entries, but in perfect shape. These people are spending the time/money on the ongoing maintenance needed to keep a place up to date.

"Thin walls but nice staff"

10/10/2015

We did wonder about staying so far from the town but the location of this hotel actually was very convenient for the park and for getting to the quieter side of the island. Its a series of one storey blocks just off the main (and at night quiet) road but the accommodation does show signs of its age. We had people next door who were by no means noisy but we could still hear everything through the walls. And as we are quiet sleepers that was irritating. The desk staff did kindly look at options for us but none really suited us so we decided to stick it out. Sleep wasnt helped by the biker on the other side going for a sunrise trip up Cadillac mountain but I guess thats always a possibility here! Breakfast staff were friendly and cheerful and breakfast itself was decent. Desk staff were extremely helpful and even managed to get a message through to the dentist I had had to visit just before arrival.

First and foremost, the staff at this motel are national treasures, friendly, helpful, nothing too much trouble, they are to be commended and should be awarded for their efforts. Our room was spotless, a good size, bed amazingly comfortable, soooo many pillows ! The room was warm, able to open windows for some fresh air was a boon as so many places have 'locked' Windows. The entrance and grounds are so well kept, sitting at the pool relaxing in the late afternoon fall sunshine was such a pleasure. We would certainly visit again. Oh yes, the included breakfast is exceptional as are the staff attending it. The location is great for visiting Acadia NP, Bar Harbor and surrounds.

Stayed here for 3 nights on our trip to Acadia. We had a comfortable king-sized bed in a clean well-equipped room with microwave, frig and coffeemaker. It had free wifi which worked well. Our room was in the back of the building and we were able to park in front of it, making it easy to unload the car. There was a large grassy area in the back with adirondack chairs for lounging. The room was very quiet - no traffic noise. The free breakfast was wonderful with a waffle-maker, yogurt, cereals, pastries, eggs, sausage, juice, coffee, etc. It was manned every morning by two wonderful ladies who kept it well supplied and made us feel like we were eating in their kitchen. They were a treasure - I hope the manager knows what an asset they are to his business. The rest of the staff was equally friendly though we had not as much contact with them as our stay was trouble-free. If you are staying in the Acadia area, you should seriously consider staying here - you won't regret it.

We recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at this complex and were very satisfied with the rooms, the staff and the continental breakfast. The rooms were comfy and very clean- (the staff person who cleaned our room even left us a pleasant note!) They were well equipped with all the amenities- refrig, microwave, coffee maker, wi- fi, etc. The staff was extremely helpful with info on Acadia ( how best to see it, a few options) and Bar Harbor downtown (where to eat, where to park, when to go- not when a cruise ship is in harbor and they keep a schedule!). We enjoyed the continental breakfast and the large room it was located in. Laundry on site that was outside under a roof type cover and seemed to be quite busy except in the early morning. The location was a few miles outside downtown Bar Harbor and very near the Visitors entrance to Acadia Nat'l Park. Would recommend this place to other travelers.

This motel was a little further from downtown Bar Harbor than we expected. The rooms are basic, but we slept well and other patrons were respectful and quiet. The breakfast room is very nice. They serve some form of hot eggs and meat each day. You can make your own waffle and they are quite good compared to some hotels. The coffee is very good and Carol will give you great advice on where to go and what to do in Acadia. The price was high for a motel with outdoor entrances but it is Bar Harbor. Basically the rooms are average and the breakfast and staff are very good.

"More of a motel than Inn"

05/10/2015

Not far from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor Maine, this property consists of one level, motel type rooms. The property is older but well maintained and clean. Both the room and bathroom were decent sized although the tub/shower seemed to be rather narrow. This would be a good value at half the price, but understanding the close location to the Park and town with its very high priced properties, perhaps this is not so expensive. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast typical.
