Great views of the sand bar and Bar Island with the right room. Ask for a room in the building behind the main building on the third floor. These rooms are more affordable. Washer and dryer on each floor. Looking Glass Restaurant on property has fantastic food and the best views on the entire property.

Forget It!!

On arrival room 112 smelt damp and floor was covered with dead moths!!! Plus a few still flying - not what you want to see on arrival. Coffee machine was very dusty! My mistake looking under the beds - it was filthy!!!!! Clearly not cleaned in a long while. The fridge was no better. Dust in and all around the wardrobe. I did go to report to reception regarding the moths and while the girl on the desk was trying to be helpful the blonde bob (she didn't introduce herself) was less sympathetic stating yes they had noticed a few moths too!! After clearing the moths myself we ended up staying in room given (no alternative was even offered). Bed seems like an old mattress that needs replaced. Walls so thin you could join in the conversations with your neighbours. Breakfast=Paper bowls, paper plates, plastic cutlery. Not environmentally friendly and so low standard. Something one might expect at a budget hotel and this is not. Breakfast edible but basic. Oh bread still frozen on one occasion. The positives were a beautiful view, access to indoor/outdoor pools, steam/sauna. The main building had a pleasant lounge/bar area.. Perhaps facilities in the main building are better.
However Bar Harbor was beautiful and we'll worth the visit.

Great hotel with a view

Great room and view. Beds comfortable. Wonderful view of the bay. Rooms had microwave and refrigerator. This is also close to town and Acadia National Park. The room was decorated to look historical as this is on millionaire's row that burnt down in 1947. Some might consider dated but the room was clean and carpet was all new.

We had a great time. Room was immaculate and the staff made sure it was maintained every day of our stay.
Staff was very helpful, assisting us with transportation issues and general information about the area.

Very clean

We had a great few night stay at the Bluenose Inn. The room was immaculate. We especially liked the pool/hot tub. The continental breakfast wasn't anything special, but was good. My only complaints would be that our in room fridge was stinky and the room was completely out of date. It has the feel of a 4 star hotel but looks like grandma's house.
