5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Arrived via the Cat Ferry from US and this hotel is only 1/2 mile from customs! Rooms are very nice and clean. Bedding is very comfortable - occasionally hear voices and or a dog barking - but overall pretty quiet for being on a main road thru town. Free parking in several lots. Nice to have a bar, though dated,... More

Stayed here in order to take the ferry to Portland. The hotel is very dated , which is okay but we found the room not to be particularly clean. The bathtub was very dirty in the bottom,which is not a nice feeling. The sheets were clean and the bed was okay. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Old and dated, only stayed over nite in order to catch the ferry back to Portland. They work in conjunction with The Cat. Would never stay for any length of time, the carpet hasn't been changed or cleaned in years.. On the other hand, you don't have much to choose from in Yarmouth.

We picked the Rodd Grand because of the location. The only hotel downtown Yarmouth very close to the ferry. We got there late evening so did all the other cars getting off the ferry. The line up at the desk was big but the staff did an amazing job checking everyone in. Despite the line up in front of us... More

The hotel is old and has been updated to some extent. Two double beds are fine for two people but would not work if you have any kids. Pool water was chilly but spa was very comfortable. No free breakfast but free parking.

We wanted to get the most out of our last day on Nova Scotia, so we chose this hotel on our last night as it's less than 5 minutes to the boat. As others have mentioned, it's nothing special, but it was the perfect spot for us. Quick check in and check out, they have a pool and a restaurant.... More

Late check-in was easy, room was comfortable, we got 2 queen size beds, we were moved from the 7th to 6th floor due to a wedding reception as we were told, maybe we could have seen better views on 7th floor.

This is an average hotel. It's only upside is that it is the only hotel/motel in Yarmouth that has a pool. At one time(30) years ago it was in the middle of a small bustling town, but now it's just the tallest building in Yarmouth with the lousiest food a hotel has ever served. Breakfast is not included and at... More

Comfortable rooms, great views, reasonably priced breakfast, helpful staff. The air conditioning in our room was defective and they changed our room apologizing that the new one did not have harbor views. We can still see the water.
