We stayed here for two nights just after Thanksgiving. The room had a great view and everything was very clean. The hotel is in walking distance to Main St, Bar Harbor and is close to Acadia National Park. The breakfast was nice - we were offered eggs any style cooked fresh on the second morning we were there. I would...

This hotel is located on the shore of Frenchman's Bay. The views from the rooms are beautiful and add serenity to an already comfortable hotel. Our room had a balcony and chairs for relaxing. The weather was cold but we were still able to enjoy the views. Complimentary coffee, tea and cookies are available throughout the day in the lobby...

We were off to a bumpy start at this Hotel when while traveling to the area I received a phone call and Staff wondered why we had not checked in the night before. After I told the woman that it was ridiculous and I wouldn't be paying for that night as I called and changed the reservation months ago... she...

This was a great off-season Acadia stay. The family suite was perfect. It was large, not cramped. Being on the ground level allowed us all to go out by the water, see the stars and just have more space. Hotel employees were helpful and nice. The coffee and snacks when we arrived were delicious. Everyone would have liked to stsy...

Good rooms in a good location for business (College of the Atlantic, MDI Biological Labs) with attractive water views. But when visited in November 2016 the pool was closed, the Bistro was closed for private parties, and the front desk staff appear not to have much sense of what 'hospitality' means. A request for a 1 pm late checkout was...

OH MY GOD. I am still staying here (for work) and I am absolutely in love with this hotel. I travel often for work, but I am blown away with this hotel and the staff. The rooms are clean, gorgeous, and come equipped with a big balcony and an even better view. I attached a couple of pictures I took...

The Atlantic is a large, updated ocean front hotel just outside of downtown Bar Harbor so it's close to restaurants, shops, Acadia National Park & more. Friendly, efficient staff, clean, stylish, comfortable rooms, many of which have balconies overlooking the ocean. A full buffet breakfast gave us a great start to each day. Very impressed with the gluten free dedicated...

Everything was perfect, rooms are immaculate & pretty, view was spectacular, staff, was very nice, continental breakfast, excellent. Only improvement, I could see would be pillow toppers for the beds, after a long day of hiking, a good nights sleep is a necessity, but.....difficult with the extra firm beds!

Great place to stay. Very Friendly Staff, clean rooms, nice continental breakfast and an Excellent Chef in their Bistro. Highly recommend. A Great view of the Ocean, quiet surroundings. Close to Town with a Great Events Center. Really enjoyed the Quilt Retreat and all the Excellent Meals they served while there.

We stayed at Atlantic Oceanside for two nights this past week. It's a fairly slow time of the year for Acadia and Bar Harbor but this hotel was fairly busy. Room was nicely appointed and clean with a view of the bay. An included breakfast buffet was fairly extensive. We also had dinner the evening of our arrival. It was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on 12 beautiful acres just one mile from downtown Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia National Park, the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel offers an ocean view from every room. Our brand new Atlantic View building offers everything you would expect from a modern hotel with fantastic views. Close enough to all the action of town, but just far enough away so you can relax. Our new rooms, friendly staff, and seasonal packages are the perfect combination of quality and value. Let us show you how beautiful the Maine coast can be.The AO is proud to announce the Grand Opening of its all new Bistro on Eden, a full service restaurant and bar.And with a great location comes great responsibility. The Bistro on Eden is a warm, lively restaurant and bar where people can be themselves and meet others in a friendly, comfortable setting. Overlooking Frenchman's Bay it offers smashing views and intimate outdoor seating, where every seat faces the Atlantic Ocean. We feature great tasting fresh, seasonal comfort cooking with ingredients that are primarily sourced from local, small scale vendors. Above all you can expect warm, genuine service. That is something upon which we pride ourselves.We are located inside the lobby of the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel, 119 Eden St. Bar Harbor, and Maine 04609. Open Wed. ~ Sat. 5Pm ~ 9pm ... more   less
