Love staying at the Grand...great location, clean rooms and, especially for the winter getaways..the spa. The service has always been good, the room comfortable and have never had a bad experience here. The heater in the room was a little noisy, but other than that, it was a good experience.

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms have a great view!

This is my favorite place to stay down the ocean. We came down for a girls weekend. The room was great and beds comfy as always. We had a problem with our toilet flushing, but we called down and they fixed it right away. The staff was very friendly.

Understanding it was a just a few weeks past Hurricane Sandy, there appeared to be water damage to the rooms and walls. The pool was nice and there was plenty of stuff to do to keep the kids occupied. The rooms were basic, but for the price and being on the boardwalk even in the offseason, it was ok for a quick trip to the beach.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay; however I do apologize that you encountered water damage in your room. As you said, this was from Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, the damages were minor and we have since repaired them. We are also pleased that your children were able to stay occupied with the amenities we have in the hotel! It’s nice to have the game room and pool for the off-season when the boardwalk shops are not open. We hope to see you again during your next visit to Ocean City!

Went on an escape package which included a $60 voucher for dinner at 1 of 4 restaurants. Only one of the 4 (BJ's) was open and had a bad experience there before so our romantic dinner turned into pizza and a soda at the Dough Roller which was quite good. Hotel refused to credit me for the voucher and would only change the expiration date to next Jan. lot of good that will do since we probably won't be back to OC for a couple years.

Also had a massage at the spa. The table was wobbly and felt like I was going to fall off when she applied side pressure, told them at beginning of message and could not relax the entire time. No offer was made for another service or credit for the poor one.

Had a king suite on the 12th floor. Room was sparsely furnished with no comfortable seating and mattress pad and mattress were stained.

Will never go back.

Rooms are poorly decorated and the beds very uncomfortable. Heating/cooling system in the room was very loud and made for a difficult night of sleep. The staff didn't make any effort to be friendly or helpful (especially the coffee shop staff). I was considering using the spa services, but didn't want to spend the extra money to experience more unhappy employees. I am glad I stayed at an "off-season" price because the room is not worth "in-season" rate. Hotel location and view of the ocean from the room was great, but didn't "make-up" for the poor experience.
