Honestly, many hotels with "Grand" in their name are not. But this one comes pretty close. Located a block off the center of town it is within easy reach of everything.

I love the comments on the design of our hotel. I get great enjoyment in explaining to our guests about the original "boarding house" the exterior was designed after.
