This is the 3rd time staying at the Grand. Just as good as the first time. Perfect location, beautiful, immaculate rooms and great location. Went to Old Fort Inn their sister property to use the pool. Their lunch menu needs to be improved. Great staff, one of the best in Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area.

We chose to stay at The Grand Hotel based in part on other reviews (and we did not want to stay at a Bed and Breakfast). It is located just across the bridge from Kennebunkport's Dock Square, so it is perfect for walking. I usually associate the description "Grand" with a historic large hotel. This is neither - it is... More

Everything about this hotel was perfect- location, staff, and information! Everything we needed was at our fingertips. The beds were so comfortable with excellent amenities, from shower needs to coffee and teas at hand. The desk staff made suggestions about restaurants, shopping, and points of interest that were perfect for the two of us. We will definitely be back!

Beautifully decorated. Fresh and new and good location in the middle of town. Very comfortable bed and linens. Front desk staff are very pleasant and helpful and there are nice extra touches like a bag of cookies at check out. Excellent value for the money. But, considering that it is called a "hotel," they really should have a desk that... More

Dear NewYorkTravelor, Thank you for your excellent review. We enjoy being able to offer extra special touches for our guests like the welcome whoopie pies and the good bye bags of cookies and water for the ride home. We are a boutique hotel and like many other hotels in this area we do close down the front desk, however, we... More

This like-new boutique hotel is bright and shiny and located in the heart of the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area. Walking distance to great restaurants and shoppes. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast at the general store right across the street or partake of the "bagged" breakfast provided by the hotel on your own balcony. Bicycles are available at no cost by the hotel. Wonderful... More

First stay at The Grand Hotel and we were not disappointed. Very casual feel and unobtrusive service. The beds were incredibly comfortable too. We highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here on our next visit to Kennebunkport.

This is the second time my husband & I stayed at The Grand & we love it. The location is perfect for the restaurants & stores... It's about a mile to the beach but we enjoy the walk everyday there & back. The rooms are very updated & beautiful. The service is outstanding! Will keep staying there for sure!

This is a very clean hotel in a great location in Kennebunkport right on the main strip. The hotel staff are very nice and accommodating. They have bikes available for free for guests to use. Around Kennebunkport is a great place to go biking (pedal up Ocean Ave by Pres Bush's estate). The reason I am only giving this hotel... More

Clean, smells great....like a spa. Good quality linens, Spacious well designed rooms, nice balcony overlooking downtown/art gallery. Bag of goodies at checkout. No negatives that I can see. There are really no services to speak of although the front desk person was very helpful. Everything you could possibly want is right outside the door, very short walk to harbor .
