This hotel has cottages adjacent to the main property. My husband relocated to Maine (we are from Oklahoma) and wanted to surprise him for Thanksgiving. I spoke with the general manager on the phone initially, he was very nice. He said their largest cottage . The Captains Cottage would be available that week, and even offered to let us rent... More

It's disappointing to find owners that over price the property during the summer months, then neglect to make improvements during the off season. I guess the Canadians will keep paying for the location and not worry about the conditions. The staff the hire tries to put on a good face but without support from the owner, they tend not to...

The beds needed some repairs and the wifi was nonexistent. Wifi is really needed when you don't have a usa cell phone with data. The towels weren't changed daily and facecloths and hand towels were not included. The rooms and grounds were otherwise clean and tidy.

Well, let me begin by saying I never got a chance to see inside. My flight was a mess that day and I was to arrive very late. I called ahead and spoke with staff, they assured me that someone was available 24 hours a day and I would have no problem checking in. This was an hour and half... More

The price was decent compared to other places in the area, but you get what you pay for. I didn't have a good feeling from the start; even though it was early in the summer season everything was dinged up - scuff marks and holes on the walls, grimy carpets - clearly no offseason maintenance had been done. The room... More

This place bites the big one! Outdated, the room had a very noisy fridge, the toilet flushed loudly, and I had to choose which electronic to plug in- the tv or the heater! It took several minutes to reroute the only extension cord. The place had cheasy and cheap furniture, the beds needed to be thrown out and the noisy... More

I've been staying at the Grand Beach Inn since it first opened. We usually stay here in the spring, and ocean front at The Royal Anchor Resort in the fall. The first 10 years were quite nice, but since then the place has been declining steadily. If the owners were more concerned about putting money into their establishment and keeping... More

Visited in beginning of September 2014. Rooms filthy and bland. General manager (Dade Vincent) was rude, arrogant, and unprofessional. This property has a long way to go before it gets anything above a 1 star rating. Definitely needs a management overhaul.

Made reservations online & were very disappointed when we arrived. The rooms were awful just could not stay.. Not clean & the smell was pretty bad. The staff and management were unbelievably nice tho! Went to the Howard Johnson instead! They are under new management though and re-doing the rooms soon .. So hopefully things will be better next year.
