The best! Will definitely stay at Bayview again! A review of The Bayview
We stayed at the Bayview for three nights while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia. It was a great place to stay for a variety of reasons. The hotel has a great location. It is close enough to bike or walk to downtown Bar Harbor, and equally close to the entrance to Acadia National Park. The service at the hotel is outstanding (I could tell from the moment I called to book the reservation that it would be) the staff were all friendly and courteous. The room was very spacious and clean and had a fantastic view. All of the rooms have balconies overlooking Frenchman's Bay -- not a distant view, the water is very close. The hotel serves a nice breakfast with a different "main dish" each day. Every day there are cereals, fruit salad, breads, pastries, and juices, and coffee/tea out as an alternative or to supplement the breakfast. In the afternoons the hotel puts out fresh-baked cookies at the front desk. The hotel has a pool (not very large), but guests can use the pools and hot tub at the neigboring hotel. We did not use them, so I can't comment. We appreciated that the hotel has a computer set up (in the bar) that guests can use to access the internet free of charge. We will definitely stay at the Bayview again when we return to Bar Harbor, we will recommend it to others.
