Best place in Bar Harbor. We loved the location over the harbor but walking distance from all the restaurants and shops. We loved the nicely decorated family suite. The food and service of hotel restaurant was one of the best in town. We enjoyed playing some board games at the lobby in front of the fireplace. It is the place to be in Bar Harbor!

Great hotel in the best location

We had reserved in another hotel, but for overbooking sent us to this hotel, that was much better and in the center of everything in Bar Harbor. Very good and large room, clean and with a balcony to Bar Island. Have its own parking. Excelent breakfast and dinner.

We had a lovely stay at Harborside. I preface hotel ratings by saying a scuffed hallway and things like that don’t ruin a hotel stay for me. That being said, overall the grounds were beautiful and well maintained. It was clean and the rooms were well appointed. We got a king bed with a fold out couch and there was plenty of room for the 3 of us adults. The location was excellent—walking distance of tons of cute restaurants and shops, plus on the waterfront and close to the meeting points for the cruises. All of the staff encountered were helpful and friendly, the food and drinks in the restaurant were excellent. The beds, linens and pillows were comfy and clean. One evening in the lobby they had warm apple cider in a dispenser, they had a fire going and games available on the tables. It was so cozy. They had room service available and I ordered hot chocolate to enjoy on our balcony overlooking the harbor. We loved hearing the fog horns. We absolutely plan to return. The only reason I gave it a 4/5 is the billing practice. I booked the room and thought it charged me, but they called a few days before saying they were trying to charge me for the deposit and my card wouldn’t work. I don’t understand why they wanted to charge for the deposit. They weren’t rude, but it resulted in me having to move some money around last minute when I thought it was taken care of. Just kind of frustrating but certainly not a reason to never stay again.

Beautiful stay

Our kids gifted us a stay at Harbor Side Hotel. It was our first time in Bar Harbor and we had a lovely stay. The service was very good! The room was clean and very nice, with an extremely comfortable bed. We would definitely recommend this hotel and location.

Great location!

This hotel is a great choice. Excellent location with amazing Bar Harbor views and right in the village, so you can walk to everything. We got a Premium Ocean Front view room (ask for room 333) and were not dissatisfied. The online images are accurate. Our views from our private balcony were awesome. The staff is fantastic, I like that you can text them anytime. Each floor has a little station with coffee, tea, bottled water, apples etc. The bed was very comfortable, quality bedding, with lots of pillows, nice modern shower. AND they have their own parking lot which is very important in Bar Harbor. Views from our balcony were great. Expensive but, a nice treat for a special occasion.
