The hotel is not a 'grand' hotel and it is showing it's age. On the plus side the beds were comfortable. The room was very clean. And the service was friendly and polite. It is a good place to stay in this corner of the province. The parking lots are small and rough but easy to access.

Stayed night before taking the ferry back to Maine. Convenient, clean, and reasonable. Also accepts pets. Handy to ferry. Restaurant was ok, but not many choices in the area. Best bet for the money in the area.

We stayed at this hotel Nov 8 and, as always, it didn't disappoint. The hotel is spotless and the linens/bed are top quality. The view is breathtaking overlooking the harbour. It is conveniently located within walking distance to nearby watering holes. This morning, we enjoyed a delicious and hot breakfast in the hotels' restaurant, Gale's.

My spouse and I stayed at the Rodd "Grand" hotel in Feb of this year. I had posted a review, along with pictures, both of which seem to be gone. I've noticed over the last little while there have been a lot of reviews, so did the previous general manager someone delete the truthful ones about how bad the stay... More

We stayed here one night in August before taking the fairy across to Portland Maine. Not much choice of hotels. The rooms were old. The doors didn't even close tight there are cracks you can see through, not sure how that is to fire code? We did have a nice view from the 7th floor.

We loved the 'genteel' quality of this hotel. Aside from not having a mini-fridge, it had everything else we wanted. Staff were quick to respond when needed and were very friendly and helpful. We've been on a two-week vacation from Ontario and this was our favorite place.
