I booked this hotel for a weekend with friends. The staff was polite and the manager was overly friendly. My room was spotless! The room was beautiful and the bathroom spotless. My friend's room had an issue with unsanitary washcloths. The manager issued them a gift shop certificate for $20.00 for the "inconvenience." This hotel is nice and (mostly) clean.... More

We recently stayed at the Grand as part of a roadtrip across New England. It was the nicest hotel that we stayed in. The rooms were large and well furnished (modern but in a period style), clean and the service throughout was excellent. Good location just 5 minutes walk from the harbour, would definitely return.

Very comfortable, very clean, large bathroom, comfortable bed but needed extra/better pillows. The included breakfast was ok. We understood this was an off-time for the area so possibly more breakfast options when the hotel is full during the busy season.

The hotel was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and it was convenient to have a mini fridge. The bathroom was large and we had plenty of towels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and lots of spaces to sit and eat. Although the off season, I didn't see anyone else on our floor. Great hotel for... More

For the past several years, we've made an annual trip to this hotel for fall foliage. It's one of our favorites. The service is excellent and very friendly. Rooms are always clean. It's hard to ask for more.

On 3/8/13, I spoke to Dennis, the manager to reserve a two bedroom unit for my family of 5. I was quoted $315.00/night. Imagine our surprise and disappointment in late August when we arrived after a 6 hr ride to find our room had been given to another tourist. We thought we had guaranteed the room, but we were told...

Quiet, clean, nice hotel. It is located in the center of town. We walked to the beach and through the quaint town. Walked to restaurant for a nice lobster dinner. A standard continental breakfast was prepared. Dining area was clean.
