The hotel was in a great location. We were able to walk everywhere but they even had bikes you could borrow. The hotel was also super clean and very nicely decorated. The staff was super nice and accommodating.

For our first Maine/Kennebunk experience, we could not be more delighted with our choice of the Grand Hotel. What a perfect spot for use as a base for a 4 day stay. You are spoiled by the beauty of the area and all Kennebunkport has to offer during daily excursions and continue being spoiled when returning to the Grand. It is the perfect location with easy walks to the village for restaurant and shops or just gawking at the beauty of the area. In addition to accommodations being a great value, the staff at the Grand add to the experience. Providing suggestions and options for sight seeing, food, shopping and the overall southern coastal Maine experience were invaluable. You don't get that everywhere and based on our experience, the Grand will be the spot we come to when we schedule our next visit. In addition, our daughter wanted to provide us with an early anniversary gift during our stay. Marlene was instrumental in helping the daughter arrange the surprise we discovered when returning to our room. Thank you for a great experience!!

Clean, comfortable, good value, great service and a wonderful location (so many things very easily walkable) made this the best birthday weekend ever. There was a lot of attention to detail and it shows. I can't wait to go back.

We travel a lot and this Grand Hotel is the best place we have found in years for the location, value, service, class and the beds are wonderful with a perfect view. We recommend this place very highly! We will be back Thank you. We could not find much marketing on it but so glad we drove into town to find this gem! Don't miss out on the best place to stay in Kennebunkport Maine.

First off, it should be noted that Kennebunkport is an amazing place. Actually, Maine as a whole is a friendly, beautiful, inspiring destination.

Kennebunkport is filled with cute shops, restaurants, and scenic views. Its also filled with places to stay. One of them being the Grand.

Let's start with the good: The rooms are huge and perfectly appointed. Every inch of the hotel, was designed so well it was like you were walking through a magazine photo shoot. And lets talk about the cleanliness. I'ver never stayed in a hotel that was so clean. Beds were comfy to the max. The room had everything you needed and then some. And the location? Smack dab in the middle of everything! But if you want to explore they have bikes to borrow - at no chargw! The hotel was peaceful too - always a plus :)

Now, we get to the not so good. It should be noted that I'm being picky here, as there's nothing really that could be done about this. The hotel was really just a bunch of rooms...and not so much a hotel. There is zero "hotel experience". As a matter of fact, there's no one at the front desk after a certain hour and when we went to leave/checkout, we had to slide our keys under a door! There's no cozy lobby, no cool hotel restaurant, no grounds...nothing. Our family was staying down at the Kennebunkport Inn and were a little jealous because their hotel's lobby/bar scene was so cool and a total "experience". However, when we saw their rooms, we stopped being jealous, lol.

Overall, we would stay here again and are planning on it - because Kennebunkport was so incredible!

When I pulled up the trip advisor to leave a review, our room we stayed in popped up and I almost cried...We miss it so much. My husband and I came to Kennebunkport from Texas for our 20th anniversary. I can't say enough about this hotel. I am a CLEAN freak and I didn't feel like there was one inch of that room that needed to be touched. We were in a corner room so we had a wonderful view out both windows. I'd definitely ask for the very same room! The front desk staff was so helpful. We borrowed the bikes one day and my chain came off (Not a big deal - I Was able to put it back on) but we received champagne and chocolates as an apology. We want to buy the bed we slept on...so comfortable! We traveled all over Kennebunkport area on foot and bike and there is no better place than The Grand! Hands down best place to stay for a couple!

Room Tip: Make sure you are on the front or corner facing dock square...best views here.

The Grande Hotel is perfectly situated in the middle of Kennebunk. We could walk everywhere and didn't use our car the whole weekend!
Even better, the hotel is just beautiful! Our room was small (queen bed), but perfectly appointed with a huge shower and lovely linens. The staff went above and beyond to answer all our questions and make sure all our needs were met. We're so looking forward to returning!
