We stayed a week at the Bar Harbour Inn and it suited our needs very well. The Inn was well situated for our needs in a convenient location on a main artery and with convenient access to the LIRR station and local shopping mall(s).. It was only about seven miles from our destination so it worked well in this area where there are limited hotel facilities. Although there is no restaurant on site, numerous restaurants are close by.
The Staff, both the Desk Staff, Housekeeping and the Breakfast Attendants were all very friendly and cordial and welcoming.
The room furnishings were adequate and satisfactory, but seemed a little tired and dated - but they were fine for us. The room had two full-sized beds but only a single night stand and lamp between the two beds (making it awkward for the person on the wall side of the bed. There was a small desk with a lamp (that did not work)that took up a lot of the surface of the desk and a chair (the only chair in the room). There was a large TV in a cabinet at the foot of the bed that worked well with a remote specifically designed to be easily sanitized.There was a luggage carrier and a bench that was suitably sized to carry a second suitcase - a nice touch for the second person in the room. Two wall sconces and the single light over the night stand were the only lights in the bedroom which lacked an overhead light. The first floor room's window opened onto the walkway and parking lot requiring the window shades to be drawn all day and night for privacy. There was a coffee maker on the desk with coffee and tea (regular and decaf) and fixin's available.
The bathroom, though a bit tight was nicely arranged with a tub/shower combo and a corner sink. Although counter space was limited, the lighting in the bathroom was better than any we've encountered on our last several trips. A nice selection of toiletries and three sets of towels were provided along with my three basics: Bar soap, face cloths, and facial tissues.
The breakfast buffet (just off the lobby) was pretty standard with waffles and scrambled eggs every day and sausage and turkey bacon alternating. The eggs were OK but not great. Again, service from the buffet attendants was exceptional. Coffee and tea, regular and decaf is available 24 hours in the lobby.
The first floor room in the back building avoided the stairs to the 2nd floor (only the few rooms in the front/main building have an elevator to the 2nd floor) and was very convenient to the parking lot but was subject to noise, particularly early AM, from the parking lot and service and housekeeping staff.
A card/sign in the room states that room housekeeping is available from 0900 until late morning, but on the weekend, the maid arrived before 9 AM and couldn't or wouldn't return later to make up the room.
We will return on our next trip. less
