“Excellent last minute stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This hotel was wonderful all around. The front desk staff was very helpful and energetic. The common areas and the room was amazing! Everything from the bikes we were able to take out to the heated bathroom floors, we enjoyed our stay and would reccommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kennebunk. The location was great as well!

A beautifully apportioned hotel, right in he middle of idyllic kennebunkport. Gorgeous interior decoration, comfortable beds, fantastic bathroom/shower and so incredibly clean and high standard of amenities; even had a Keurig coffee maker in the room! Friendly staff, and free of charge bikes and beach/ parking. Could not have been better. I would thoroughly recommend it. (No night porter/reception service and no restaurant or bfst but really no need for it)

We stayed at The Grand Hotel last month during our trip up to Boston and Maine and we were extremely pleased with everything. From comfort to location, this place was fabulous. The hotel provided us with a complimentary upgrade and we LOVED the free bike rentals. Most of our time was spent exploring Kennebunk/Kennebunkport and riding thru town. It was so much fun! We weren't at all bothered by the fact that the front desk closes early and overall we had a wonderful experience. Not a single complaint about The Grand Hotel.

I absolutely loved walking into this hotel. After a long drive, it was a delight to have such a wonderful place to stay. First of all, it was VERY clean, it even met my cleanliness standards (which is saying a lot) The room was beautiful. Looks like it was decorated by a professional. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was very nice.I could have stayed there for a week!

Dear lovestoexplore28

Thank you for your wonderful review. We were thrilled to see that you loved everything about The Grand. It was designed by a very talented local interior designer called Louise Hurlbutt.

We do hope you manage to stay with us for a whole week next time you visit.

Would definitely stay here again. The room was nice, location excellent, and the attached cafe "kitchen chicks" was perfect for a quick breakfast with nice view. Staff was very helpful with recommendations for restaurants.

What a little gem this hotel is. Smack in the middle of the whole Kennebunkport scene
it is cozy, IMMACULATE, charming and SOOOOO close to a great little bar and deli and steps from Kayaking/golfing/shopping/beach/art galleries...

Laura at the check in desk was so nice and our room was small but perfect small and bright and sunny.

WE PLAN TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR WITH OUR FRIENDS-HURRAY
