“Comfortable and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We stayed here for two nights, arriving direct from Boston. Reception was friendly and efficient. Our room was spotless and spacious, with a huge roof terrace, which we couldn't use because of the rain. Bathroom a bit small and dated, but perfectly adequate.
Breakfast is buffet style in the lobby, and we, like many, ended up taking it back to our room. Not a fan personally of paper plates... Hotel is in easy walking distance of Perkins cove and Ogunquit, so convenient for dining etc.
Overall good value for money.

Room Tip: We had a King suite, which was very spacious.

Our first visit to New England from old England, and what a wonderful find. We had been stayn n big impersonal hotels, but this is a little gem. The staff are so friendly , and there is such a happy atmosphere here, they are obviously a close knit team. Our rooms were big, comfortable, and very well cleaned. The breakfast was very welcome, and of good quality. Nice to have fresh fruit, choice f cereals, eggs etc. we really enjoyed our stay, and particularly enjoyed the fantastic restaurant next doo ROOTS which was so good we went back every night ! Well done.

The end of September, we decided to spend my husband's birthday in Ogunquit, Maine. By following the advice on trip advisor, we booked a stay at the Grand Hotel on Shore Road. We could not have been happier with our choice of hotels. We were warmly greeted and given our room keys as soon as we arrived. The desk clerk, Phillip actually remembered that we were celebrating a birthday (I booked the room with him over a month ago) so I was very impressed. Our very spacious room was a lot more then we expected. Large living room area, micro fridge, microwave & separate large bedroom with a nice deck off it made it very comfortable. You can bring your continental breakfast into your living room as there is also a table & chairs. An added plus for us was two TV's, one in each room so we could watch our own programs. I must also mentioned that the housekeeping staff did a great job each day.
A huge plus for us was that we were located half way between the start of the Marginal Way path and Perkins Cove. It was such an easy walk that we did it three times. For us not to drive around and search for parking certainly made it more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Our room was on the main floor, near the indoor pool. It was Very Quiet. As in other hotels, we ne...

We have been coming to Ogunquit for at least 15 times in the past 35 years, and after staying at several other hotels, tried "THE GRAND" and now it is the only place we have stayed in the past 12 years.

Once again our 5 night visit was perfect with friendly caring staff and this year we were also favored with excellent weather. The room was very clean and received prompt cleaning every day.

We will return again many times in future years.

One of the best places in Ogunquit! The rooms are well furnished and the location is very quiet and restful. We would recommend this hotel highly for a delightful vacation.The parking garage makes moving in and out easy in bad weather and the elevator is right there.

The Grand Hotel lived up to our expectations. The location was perfect, an easy walk to the town, Perkins Cove and the Marginal Way. Parking at Perkins Cove is expensive so being able to leave your car at the hotel makes touring the area much more convenient. Our room was a suite, which is particularly helpful for us since I get up early and enjoyed being able to read while my husband slept in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Continental breakfast offered many different options including fresh fruit (bananas, apples & oranges when we were there).
