10/10 Exceptional

Good place to stay near BH
Pictures don’t do this place justice. It is a really nice hotel with good amenities and friendly staff. The walk into town takes longer than you might think (when driving it feels like it’s right there) but as long as you aren’t dragging along kids it’s totally doable. It was kind of nice to be able to escape the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. We loved the view. The piano player in the hotel bar/great room was very good. The bed was a little lumpy but not uncomfortable.

Highest quality hotel in everything!
Stay was amazing. Room was very clean, neat, bed was extremely comfortable and bath was endlessly hot. If I ever return to this area on another trip I will pick this hotel always. It is a expensive, but worth it because of the quality in every aspect.

LOVEDDD the place
The stay was well worth the money! There's a pianist who plays on Saturday nights who was an absolute delight to watch and cap our night off with. The 2 pools to choose from were clean and beautiful. Our room was spacious,comfortable, well cleaned, and (oddly) smelt really good. The hotel itself is in a great location as well (although the turn to enter in is easy to miss).

Bluenose Inn was a great place to spend a few days in Bar Harbor that is convenient to town without being in the middle of a busy area. Beautiful view (beware if afraid of heights), both indoor & outdoor pool were well maintained and heated, and staff was super helpful with any questions.

Quiet and relaxing
My husband and I had a great stay. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and quiet. Convenient location to drive downtown, or walk if you’re up for it. We only wished they had dinner/food on site. But the Looking Glass for breakfast was a must!

Bluenose Trip
It was very nice, the piano bar in the lobby was nice, the breakfast at the Looking Glass restaurant was excellent, and though I'm a picky traveler, I can't find anything to complain about.
