After we had our reservation, I checked reviews on here and was worried how our room would be. We stayed for a Saturday and Sunday night. Our room was not filthy dirty. There were a couple of dark spots on the carpet in front of the sink which is obviously a high traffic area. Our sink stopped did not work... More

We went to the Island for a one night getaway. We walked into the lobby of the hotel and all we could hear was the loud bass of the nightclub upstairs. The guy at the front desk had to yell just so that we could hear him. We went to our room and it was DISGUSTING!! There was things all... More

As promised when I made my last minute reservation . . . it was clean. Put In Bay is a party place and this was a good place to rest your head after all the partying. It is centrally located to the bars and boardwalk. Don't come looking for luxury or amenities.

This place is disgusting. I could talk about the mold on the shower curtain, the broken A/C unit, or the dirty sheets. Maybe i could talk about the dampness of the hallways and the overall stench of the place. instead, I'd like to mention that I had to plunge my own toilet. It kept clogging and they sent someone the... More

This is definitely an over priced hotel but because there are only a few hotels on the island they can get away with charging this much ($289 a night), I think they are booked up every weekend in the summer. If you are bringing kids or want a quiet night during the weekend, this is definitely not the place for... More

The Grand Islander is a crash spot for young party goers. There is a night club on the top floor at the front of the main building. The music can be heard in some rooms, with at the least a bump being heard in the others. The rooms themselves are cheap motel level, but admittedly spacious with a pullout sofa... More

We stayed here from August 1-3, 2013. There were 4 couples who had rooms here. We are couples in our mid to late fifties. Our reasons for not recommending this place: 1) They claim to have the largest swim up bar. Well, the main pool is never open, or even unlocked to enjoy sitting by the pool in the morning.... More

Grand islander was so much worse than expected.  And we did not expect much in this so called party town. (The town was awesome)   This islanders' sister hotel is Hidden and has a hard to find entrance don't expect help if your handicapped.  The staff will just watch you struggle and continue to text on her personal phone (Chelsea).  No...

That is the only good thing I can say about this hotel. It was hot, the room was small and not exceptionally clean. There is not a restaurant and no free breakfast. It is good place to drink and be in the water.
