My friend and I both had a few days off, and desperately wanted a scenery change. The Grand Hotel has an awesome midweek special offering a room, dinner and breakfast at an extremely reasonable rate. It sounded too good to be true. Sure enough, we had a room with two floors, queen beds, two bathrooms and an ocean view. Included with our package was breakfast each morning-a plate full of eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, pancake, potatoes and toast. The dinner offerings were abundant and delicious. We both enjoyed salad, seafood entrees and dessert. It was relaxing to sip a nightcap at the bar before strolling across the parking lot to settle in for the evening. All safety measures were in place and the entire staff was attentive and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our last minute escape and returned home rested and refreshed. Thank you to The Grand Hotel!

This was the first time I stayed at the Grand since the rooms in the main building were renovated. I was welcomed upon check in by Margie and Joanne -- both were friendly, helpful and professional! The room was beautiful, super clean, and the furnishings and decor are beachy chic (love the pretty and practical granite dresser top! ) The view from my deck was gorgeous! The Covid protocols in place made me feel very safe. I can't wait to come back and enjoy another quiet and comfortable stay!

This hotel met our needs and we would consider staying here again. Our room was #124. Pros: Location/beach front Heated outdoor pool Kitchenette includes fridge, microwave, sink, electric stove top and stocked with kitchen utensils. Cons: Parking; although it's on-site, it was limited. There were many cars without hotel parking tags. It appeared the 1 parking spot per room was not being enforced. Air conditioner too loud Shower/bathtub needs updating!

The hotel itself is slightly dated but very clean. The staff were all well trained and did their jobs efficiently. As part of the package we paid for we were supposed to get dinner, 3 breakfasts and a whale watching tour. The dinner we had was delicious. My wife had broiled seafood and I, crab cakes. They were both cooked to perfection and well seasoned. Unfortunately or meal had to be served on foam plates due to the current pandemic. We never saw a breakfast the entire time we stayed there. The 1st morning I called down at ten to nine and never spoke to a person until I called the front desk and they patched me through to the dining Room… still no person… no breakfast. The 2nd morning pretty much the same thing… I started calling at 7:30 but couldn't get through to a live person until I called the front desk and was told "They are probably busy, I'll put you through"… day to NO BREAKFAST! Day 3 I tried once at around 8:00, got the message and hung up. I was done. Again, the grand is a very nice hotel and I'm sure when things go back to normal they will get their act together with breakfast but in the meantime if you're basing your entire vacation I'm getting breakfast at the grand…i don't know what to tell you.

While our room was roomy and clean, the beds and pillows where not comfortable. The room was not as was shown on the booking,com website or here. The pool was a decent size. Parking was a little of a challenge. Located across the street from beach. Within a few minutes driving distance to restaurants. Since we were only there for 2 nights, it served its purpose.
