Stayed two nights at the Grand Summit in a hotel room with kids. The hotel rooms don't have a fridge or a microwave and our heater was a little loud, but we had a private deck and could see the trail and chairlift from our deck. Otherwise the stay was nice, the location is great, the pool and hot tub... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week. The location is great for ski in/ski out. The staff is fabulous and are eager to help. The prices for simple items are Disney prices so bring lots of money. The hotel is very dated and needs a good overhaul.

Just finished our annual stay at the Grand Summit. We have been coming here from the UK for the past 8 years and we love the place. As ever the service has been really good and the snow was fab. However, whilst it has been great to see the investment in snow making and extra ski area, it really is... More

Grand Summit hotel at Sunday River is great. We stayed in a Studio Supreme on the first floor and it could not have been better. We had a kitchen where we made lunch and dinner, and a door and small deck where we could see skiers. The ski in and out is perfect, you are literally 50 feet from the... More

I spent a week at the grand summit hotel for a scientific conference. The place is very remote (4 hours from Boston airport), in the mountains. The rooms are big but the beds could be better. For a conference hotel, I would have expected a bigger desk in the room. The table was very small and used for the cups,... More

I attended a scientific conference here last week. A bit remote for an international conference, but that's not the fault of the Grand Summit. As I have limited walking mobility, I asked for a room that was convenient to the elevator, the restaurant and the conference room. Since the restaurant and conference room were at opposite ends of the very... More

We stayed a week at Grand Summit at Sunday River through an RCI exchange. Keep in mind...RCI members pay for their maintenance fees at their home resort, pay for the exchange itself...and then I was informed at check in that we would pay a $244 HOUSEKEEPING FEE. I have never had to do such a thing in all the time... More

I'm rating this Very Good as it is a great location to the mountain, clean with a decent restaurant. Ski lift is right outside the back door with an indoor/outdoor pool for year long swimming. One thing I did not like is having to pay for internet.

We stayed here during MLK weekend this past January. It's a pretty decent hotel. The rooms seemed new and nice- similar to a new Holiday Inn or something like that. The lobby had a good ambience with a fire going and lots of ski decor. The hotel is ski in/ski out, but it's on what is probably a less popular... More
