First let me say that the staff is almost without exception friendly helpful and enthusiastic. Close to all CBD amenities and the ferry terminal it is a logical stop for Portland ferry passengers. There is an on site mid range restaurant which also does takeaways and room service. Not all rooms have a fridge. Apparently you are meant to know... More

Will stay here again if i come back out this way again. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced in the restaurant. Advise that if... More

I have stayed at the Grand may times. It is easy to criticize. I got a 3rd floor updated room. Very nice and the service is good. You need to remember this town is at the end of North America. Times are tough and this hotel is dependant on the ferry and government business. Good luck to them and I... More

Good location in town. Can easily walk to waterfront and restaurants Even numbered rooms on higher floors 5-6-7 (?) have a nice view of harbour. Odd numbered rooms look inland across the water to the hospital. Staff were all friendly - from the front desk to house maids to waitresses to maintenance staff. Reasonable amount of free hotel parking, no... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Rodd Grand. It had good, clean rooms, a nice pool and sauna and a good restaurant. It was well located in town and the people were friendly and tried to make our stay as pleasant as they could. We had some noise next door in the middle of the night and the front desk... More

My parents are in their 80's and my dad came home to Yarmouth one last time and he reserved a room on the 5th floor but ended up on the second floor. He found staff very unhelpful. They told him he asked for double beds but the first room they gave us had a King bed so that seems untrue.... More

We stayed here on the last night of a motorcycle tour of Nova Scotia. First off let me say that "Yes, the carpets are worn." OK? There is a letter in each room explaining that they are in the process of improving the place, and personally I would rather have a nice new bed over a new rug. Now, as... More

It appears that this 1960's hotel has had some minor upgrades within the past ten years but the quality of the facility does not come close to modern mid priced hotels. The problem is it's about the only game in town. We were there to take the Nova Star Ferry the next morning to Portland, ME. The beds were worn... More

This is an older hotel that has been somewhat renovated. It looks just a bit tired on the outside, but the lobby is nice enough. The room appeared to have been recently renovated, but the bathtub and shower were still from the 70's. The shower handle fell off in my hand, but the shower itself was fine. The doorknob on...
