My wife and I decided to spend a night in Yarmouth and we were glad to stay the the Rodd Grand Yarmouth. It is right downtown which was convenient for our leisure activities. We stayed in a double queen room that face the harbour and gave us a nice view. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed for... More

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.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Yarmouth Rodd Grand on our return trip back home from a vacation on Prince Edward Island.

I really thought that Rodd would have spent some money on this property since my last visit. I returned to The Rodd Grand in Sept 2014, my room was #520. The bed was a king size bed and it was comfortable. The sheets and towels were nice, however the furniture was very dated, and really needs replaced. There is really... More

Not sure about the quality of the other hotels. This hotel was my priciest. For the rates, they should have at least a free continental breakfast. You had to buy breakfast ($5.99 without a drink) per person. You had to park on the street. The hotel could use a face lift.

We arrived in Yarmouth a day ahead of ourselves and had to cancel a reservation at the Comfort Inn. Unfortunately, they had nothing for the night we needed and all that was left was the Rodd Grand. There oughta be a law about naming something Grand when it is far from it. The first room we were assigned looked tired,... More

We decided to have dinner at the restaurant inside the Rodd. We did not stay at the hotel. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. The bar and the restaurant are not connected, so ordering a mixed drink or draft beer was not an option. The food was as good as you would expect in a hotel restaurant. The atmosphere... More
