Wanted to spend the day at Arcadia and not have to worry about driving afterwards, Atlantic Oceanside Hotel had plenty of room with a view of the Frenchman Bay from the Atlantic View portion of the facility. There are 6 different buildings providing different levels of accommodations. The Atlantic View room made for quite comfortable stay, with a smaller private balcony with seating which gave a full view of the bay right out our door. Location was close enough for a short drive to downtown Bar Harbor. Many Resort Amenities are available.

We stayed here with our high school trip for the Regional One Act Play Competition at Mount Desert High School. Dede and Brittany and Rene made the stay absolutely wonderful. They were so accommodating and very welcoming. They made the reservation process so easy and fluid. The rooms are gorgeous!! They are not outdated at all. Each one of our rooms had a beautiful ocean view that helped us relax and enjoy the competition. The buildings are all gorgeous and the pool is wonderful! I cannot wait to stay here again. The restaurant was wonderful. I had one parent thank me for booking our school trip at a hotel with a restaurant. It made their lives easier knowing that they could sit down and enjoy a nice meal while their children were be taken care of. There is plenty of parking and the grounds have excellent lighting at night. It's in walking distance of Bar Harbor, which in the summer months is nice because parking in Bar Harbor is really tough. There is a sidewalk taking you down to West Street which leads you right into downtown Bar Harbor. They also have free shuttles to Bar Harbor in case of inclement weather. I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our time here. I will be bringing my husband back here to stay. It's wonderful!

We just stayed here and really enjoyed it! My daughter had basketball tournament games in the area so this was very convenient. Clean spacious room with nice balcony. Very friendly staff! The pool area was good size with a jacuzzi and work out area near by. Will definitely come stay here during the summer so I can enjoy the balcony and beautiful view!!!

Rooms are ok, bit dated. My companion and I decided to eat in one night. I noticed the waitress that was serving us was suffering from resting b!tc|-| face syndrome. Not once during our entire meal did she even try to fake a smile. We both ordered the same dish and waited. One meal arrived before other, even though we had both ordered the exact same meal. When I asked her where my food was, she said it's on its way; I still had to wait for almost 10 minutes before my meal arrived. The food I honestly don't know if there's something wrong with my taste buds but the whole dish was mediocre at best. Also, beakfast is nothing mentionable.

Mixed feelings

First and foremost, all of the people we dealt with (waiters, front desk, maid) were fabulous. Our room was clean and comfortable with an ocean view. The heating unit was very loud and had a weird cycle. On the first night we ate in the restaurant. My wife sent back her lobster bisque because she said it had no lobster in it and tasted more like tomato soup. I sent back my clam chowder because it had no flavor - almost like they dumped a can of clams into some milk. They comped us both of these. My last chicken wing was not cooked all the way through. We did not go back for another dinner there. The breakfast was very blah. The couple of hot dishes were not impressive at all. On the last day they had something they called country fried steak that looked more like a cow turd. The pastries looked store bought. Doubt as we’ll be back.
