It is so great when you make last minute reservation and at arrival you discover it was a good choice. It is a perfect little hotel, clean, comfortable, perfect location right on Main Street. We relaxed, walked right from the hotel to shops and restaurants. We will definitely go back. Loved it.

Growing up in Northern MA, we have done many trips up the Maine coast, but never to Kennebunkport. We took a shot for my boyfriends birthday and we were blown away. The Grand was absolutely amazing. Perfect little boutique hotel so close to everything!!!! We had a late check-in due to a terrible car wreck on 95, but the hotel...

The Grand Hotel is the place for a weekend get away. This hotel is not only beautiful, charming, and pristine, but it is also conveniently located right downtown. Amazing restaurant or drink options are just a few minutes walk away across the beautiful bridge. We were treated exceptionally the entire weekend, including a warm welcome at the reception and in...

If you like being in the center of things then this is an ideal location. It's an easy walk to restaurants and shops. The staff was eager to help and responsive. The room was clean, well maintained and comfortable. We will definitely return to the Grand Hotel in the future.

Lovely clean hotel with excellent front desk help. Very modern rooms and heated tile in bathroom made getting up early a joy! The hotel has an excellent location to walk downtown to visit shops and eat dinner.

Don't let the address fool you, this property is only a couple hundred yards from the small river and bridge which is officially Kennebunkport. If it could call itself in Kennebunkport, this hotel would be even more well known (and expensive I suspect). We only stayed here one night on our whirlwind tour of New England, but it was everything...

Based on all the glowing reviews, we booked a King Grand room at this hotel. A bit pricey at $347.71, but we thought we'd treat ourselves to some luxury. Upon entering the hotel near the check-in counter, there were food crumbs all over the floor. In the elevator, there were more food crumbs. This, though disappointing, was not the height...

The moment we walked into the hotel we received the friendliest greeting, like we would upon arrival at friends' home...and we were offered Prosecco at the front desk!

Lovely, clean and in a perfect location. The staff is friendly and accommodating. While there is not a restaurant on site, it really doesn't matter as there are options to dine within steps of the hotel. We would stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here on our Road Trip in New England. The Hotel is immaculately clean and spacious with Large Rooms more like Suites in any ordinary Hotel. The staff were very helpful, my only criticism is that they don't provide any meals. But all that said it is a Hotel not to be missed if you are staying in Kennebunkport.
