This used to be the fanciest place in town. Now it is run down. The floor in our room was so stained and dirty that we had to wear shoes the whole time. The bed was clean. The bathroom was classic with nice products. Hot tub jets didn't work but pool was fine. If you want a fridge, ask for... More

This was a great place for us to stay before taking the early morning ferry. Everyone was accommodating, the location was perfect for walking to restaurants in Yarmouth, and best of all, dogs are allowed. We would stay there again the next time we take the ferry to Maine from Yarmouth.

We recently attended a terrific dinner theater here. The show was called Gold Rush - oldies performed by local musicians. The hotel managed the buffet meal well. The food was good quality banquet food, including a very good rappie pie.

Booked a suite, that turned out to be a room with the door knocked out to the next room,that had a sofa, two chairs, and a TV. This room was not worth the amount paid!!!

We booked this hotel as part of the Portland to Yarmouth Ferry crossing. I was disappointed that the package rate was higher than other discount rates that were available. The room was clean and comfortable but the hotel was a little tired and dated. Nothing "Grand" here other than it is located on Grand Street. Parking is a problem. We... More

Hello Peter M, Thank you for letting us and other know about your stay. It is a little harder to find parking at the time the ferry arrives. With 400 cars coming off spots are few and far between. I'm happy you like our location and hope we get to see you again very soon. More

First off, we chose to stay here due to is close proximity to the CAT ferry to Portland, Maine. Secondly, we were very disappointed. The hotel is dated. Our bathroom was old and needed to be desperately updated. There was paint chipping and falling from the bathroom ceiling. Do not order room service breakfast. Breakfast arrived later than we requested... More

When you are coming off the ferry or getting an early start for the morning ferry the Rodd Grand is the place to stay. The time without the ferry really hurt the city of Yarmouth. Now they are coming back and the Rodd is trying to come back too. It still has a way to go. Our room was quite... More

For late night arrival after a long ride on the ferry from Portland, Maine this hotel is all that you need. Parking is a little challenging, but they are swift to get everyone to a room. I gather this place is also popular with locals; they were wrapping up a ladies night as I arrived. The room was comfortable if... More
