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! less
