4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We were looking for a hotel with nice amenities for a 5 day beach town vacation with our infant. The positives: We appreciated that all rooms had balconies overlooking the marina (so no bad views), the coffee shop (great free coffee or paid espresso drinks) that also sells bottles of beer or wine (that we could take to our room...

We stayed at Marine Grand Resort for 4 nights (early August 2014). We came to the area for the wineries and Casino. We were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are more like a condo than hotel. We had a complete kitchen, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, utensils, etc. along with a dining table and living room with fold out sofa.... More

We stayed for three nights as a couple. It is definitely the best location on the harbor as compared to other resorts, however, we expected a lot more for $379/night. That was for just a basic room. The fireplace didn't work, no microwave, the mini fridge barely fit a few bottles of water (forget leftover containers) and it was very... More

I had a brief one-night stay, but I was impressed with the decor, the friendly staff, and the bar and restaurant. It also had a nice little deli type convenience store. Loved the access to the hotel bikes, as well as the furnished deck off from the room. The workout room was minimal and the hours started later in the... More

This was our first time at this resort. I expected more for the price. The staff was exceptional, but the hotel was mediocre at best. The halls are dingy, no artwork, nothing more than a Super 8 feel. The rooms are plain and undecorated. The Marina was a beautiful view. It was nice to have the bikes, beach chairs and... More

Decided to splurge-paid much more for the Marina Grand than any other hotel I've ever stayed in, so was really expecting an elaborate resort. Pros: Very comfortable bedding/bedding; beautiful lobby; responsive staff Cons: Beyond the lobby, the hotel is really unremarkable--no artwork, scuffed paint, stained carpet in the elevator, indoor pool is fine but the room is literally bare of...

A girls getaway, we had a blast. This resort is amazing. We had a one bedroom with loft suite and the adjoining room with 2 beds. We had plenty of room to sleep 7 women along with 2.5 baths. Kitchen was sufficient with everything we needed except for no corkscrew. The dining room table along with couch and 2 chairs... More

I have stayed at this resort for the past 3 summers, somehow always getting the same exact room: 332, a loft suite with one bedroom. The view of the bay is beautiful. The unit has reupholstered 2 of the chairs and changed some side tables, and it was neat and clean as always. My kids, a teen and a college... More

Wonderful location, excellent amenities, and super clean! We loved our stay and plan to come back! We used most of the facilities and everything was top notch! Be sure to use the beach cruiser bikes! Fun and a quick ride to the beach. Loved the view!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Can't really say anything negative about our experience other than a noisy family next door to our room...no fault of the hotel though. We did enjoy our room...nice view of the marina with a private balcony. Room and property were clean. We liked the rooftop deck! Property was pretty quiet even though... More
