“Grand Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had a wonderful time at the Grand Harbor. Although the weather was not very cooperative, we enjoyed ourselves. While all the staff members were great, two people stood out: Deb Davis and a young man, Radu Odangiu. We had great conversations with both of them, and they both made us feel "right at home." We had our Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Caitlin, with us. And, while some places tolerate pets, Grand Harbor actually welcomes them. That makes a big difference. We felt like Caitlin was the center of attention, anytime we would enter the lobby. Hope we can return. BTW, if you've never been to Camden during the Labor Day Week-End, stand by for crowds.

Room Tip: I think that all rooms are good, although I believe that Room #1 is best one, if you can even book i...

Fantastic!!! Look forward to returning next year. Will not even consider another place. Although no restaurant, there are plenty of eateries close by. Hospitality of the entire staff was flawless and morning breakfast delivered to the room and enjoying it on the balcony was a treat.

Camden is a charming Maine town on Penobscot Bay. The Grand Harbor Inn is right on the water in the heart of town. The rooms are spacious and plush. Ultra modern bath room. Breakfast is delivered to your room and is a delight. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The patio is a great place to relax.

Grand Harbor is a boutique and expensive lodging. It is a treat that unfortunately not everyone can indulge themselves with, but if you can spend the money, it is just about perfect. The Inn is on the harborfront. It is across the way from a few great restaurants. The rooms are nicely appointed. Deb and Radu made every effort to make our stay pleasant. Parking was at the door. The in room continental breakfast is a nice touch. We stayed in room 1 a few times and now are spoiled. It is clearly the best room in the house, but is mostly booked up these days. The only thing missing is a workout room, because total indulgence makes you feel decadent!

A recent trip to the Maine coast, we spent two night in Room #9 at the Grand Harbor Inn. It was perfect. The room was very comfortable, loved especially the cupola sitting room.

The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. The location was perfect.

Just a great. My only small issue was there was some mold on the shower heads but did not detract from the great stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9. A king with a pull out sofa bed in sitting room.

Our two day stay at this remarkable Inn was not enough. The room so impressive it made it very difficult to leave and explore the beauty of Camden. Everything about the Grand Harbor Inn was first class. The attention given to us by staff Deb and Rada, was superior and they became a large part of our vacation experience. Parking was just outside the door. We never moved the car as we walked to everything. Thank you Grand Harbor for a first class two day stay.

This is the second time we have stayed here and it was as special as we remember. The service is outstanding, the rooms have every amenity that you can think of and is so comfortable, you feel like you want to spend the day inside. Our room faced the water and had a sunroom which was lovely. Room 9 was ours but I'm sure all of the rooms are lovely. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, they gave us proseco as we arrived and each evening. Every morning as we left they gave us bottles of water for the drive. Breakfast is in the room and delicious. The bed is so comfortable we think we want to buy the same mattress.
I highly recommend the grand harbor inn!

Room Tip: Room 9 has a sun room
