“Very nice hotel, everything you need from rooms to a bar,game room, pool, gym they have evrything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I stayed here with my parents to take them on a weekend getaway for festival of lights. Room was very, very nice and had a great view from the 9th floor. Room had everything you'd wnat or need. Hotel had anything and everything you'd wnagt and more. This hotel is very nice butm a little much for my blood to stay at during the season but, If I had a place where I'd wanna splurg a bit I'd pick THE GRAND HOTEL. Thanks for a enjoyful time when I stayed here.

Thank you very much for your positive feedback regarding your most recent stay! We are overjoyed you enjoyed your “weekend getaway” and the hotel’s amenities. The prices during the summer are much higher than the off season; however we would love to have you back to visit us again should you ever want to splurge!

I have just returned from my fourth annual weekend at the Grand. I coordinate scrapbook retreats, booking 20-25 guest rooms at a time. We love the location of the Grand, the beautiful room views, and the fabulous ballroom. The sales department and maintenance staff have been very helpful and proactive. We can't wait to get back there!

Love staying at the Grand...great location, clean rooms and, especially for the winter getaways..the spa. The service has always been good, the room comfortable and have never had a bad experience here. The heater in the room was a little noisy, but other than that, it was a good experience.

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms have a great view!

This is my favorite place to stay down the ocean. We came down for a girls weekend. The room was great and beds comfy as always. We had a problem with our toilet flushing, but we called down and they fixed it right away. The staff was very friendly.

Understanding it was a just a few weeks past Hurricane Sandy, there appeared to be water damage to the rooms and walls. The pool was nice and there was plenty of stuff to do to keep the kids occupied. The rooms were basic, but for the price and being on the boardwalk even in the offseason, it was ok for a quick trip to the beach.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay; however I do apologize that you encountered water damage in your room. As you said, this was from Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, the damages were minor and we have since repaired them. We are also pleased that your children were able to stay occupied with the amenities we have in the hotel! It’s nice to have the game room and pool for the off-season when the boardwalk shops are not open. We hope to see you again during your next visit to Ocean City!

Went on an escape package which included a $60 voucher for dinner at 1 of 4 restaurants. Only one of the 4 (BJ's) was open and had a bad experience there before so our romantic dinner turned into pizza and a soda at the Dough Roller which was quite good. Hotel refused to credit me for the voucher and would only change the expiration date to next Jan. lot of good that will do since we probably won't be back to OC for a couple years.

Also had a massage at the spa. The table was wobbly and felt like I was going to fall off when she applied side pressure, told them at beginning of message and could not relax the entire time. No offer was made for another service or credit for the poor one.

Had a king suite on the 12th floor. Room was sparsely furnished with no comfortable seating and mattress pad and mattress were stained.

Will never go back.
