They claim to be accessible and are not very dangerous for a handicapped person. Dirty carpets. No roll in showers very old and dirty. Drunks in the halls at night no security. Poor poor quality. Third World countries had better access ability that this hotrl

I'll say that for the price we paid, the Grand was a decent value. It was clean enough and quiet enough; the breakfast was Ok. Our room did not seem like it had been recently redecorated however--perhaps some have not been done yet?

I just stayed for one night and was really happy to see the changes since visiting before. The new ferry is really helping the whole town come alive and perk up. The renovations at the Grand look really good. New carpets, paint, beds (very comfy) etc. All the amenities add to a great value stay. Nice pool and exercise room.... More

Our experience was very good, beyond expectations knowing it is an old hotel. It was clean, the room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. Walking distance to the ferry and good dining. Everything worked well. Breakfast service fast and cheerful. We would return gladly.

Stayed in July while touring the area with family. Met at front desk on our arrival by a very cheerful Amy. when asked if we could view the room before booking she was more than helpful and very informative making us aware the hotel was undergoing extensive renovations. Although our room had not been renovated yet it was presentable and... More

Very dated hotel. Rooms and lobby is very tired looking. Staff is indifferent at best. Beds are not comfy, very old. Some rooms smell musty. Not much to do at the hotel. The room heater was terribly noisy and kept us awake. We found it got rowdy and noisy in the hallway late at night. Stains on towels and blankets.

I have never stayed in a hotel like this in North America. I have traveled extensively and have had similar experiences in rural Ecuador and such, but I was paying $5/day and expected to wear my slippers in the shower and for the rooms to be less than optimal. This room was disgusting. The carpet was so stained that there... More
