My husband and I just got home from our stay at the Marina Grand and we were so impressed! We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and this was the perfect place for us. The room was so clean and we loved sitting on the patio in the morning, enjoying the complimentary coffee from Joe's. The staff was also so friendly and accommodating! Our first day there, they let us check in early before we started our wine tour. When we arrived back to our room, they had a bottle of wine and caramel corn waiting for us to celebrate. The restaurant in the hotel was also very good and when the waiter found out we were there for our anniversary, he didn't charge us for our dessert! On the day of checkout, we decided to take advantage of the free bikes. The front desk not only suggested a great path for our ride, but allowed us a later check out, so we could come back and change before we headed home. Great service around every corner! I would definitely recommend the Marina Grand!!

Room Tip: Although I loved my room close to Joe's coffee shop, it was a little noisy being close to the of...

My wife and I were very impressed with the marina grand resort - and very glad we chose to stay at the property. Everyone was extremely friendly, we were suprised with a bottle of wine and sweet popcorn upon entering our room as compliments for our one year anniversary - very thoughtful and a nice touch, also, we were offered free tickets to wineries for free tastings - (it was a last minute trip and all the wine tours were booked). If you go, you can easily drive to all the wineries and you aren't stuck staying at any of them longer than you like - we wouldn't rec. the tours for that reason. The rooms were amazing, very large, clean, comfortable beds - great view of the boats , the bathrooms were very modern- very nice. the hotel had a very nice restaurant as well, reasonably priced. Very impressed -We plan on coming back another time with more family and friends.

Room Tip: all the rooms are great

We just got back today from The Marina Grand. We stayed there 5/28/14 - 5/30/14. I highly recommend this gem of a hotel. The service and staff are top notch. The restaurant in the hotel is awesome and the restaurant at the sister hotel the Harbor is fantastic. We had a wonderful time and since it's only an hour away we can't wait to stay there again!

Was thrilled to get a great price over the phone, much lower than the website prices. Called around 10:00 am to see if early check in was ok, was told yes so we finished our drive & upon arrival at resort we were told another 1-1/2 hour wait. They call our cell phone 4 hours later to tell us the room was ready. Didn't get to the pool because we wasted the day & sunshine waiting for the room.
Room was right above outdoor eating area, too loud. No other room available for us to move to. Later that night discovered a few spots in the shower,mold. Ov wouldn't stay lit so room kept smelling of gas. Front desk said thanks for letting us know, someone will check things tomorrow after you check out.

Too bad our first experience to this resort was not great. Spent a lot of money for unsatisfactory service

Room Tip: Request a room on 3rd floor, towards the middle of the resort. The balconies on the ends are at an a...

We did not know what to expect when we opened the door to our suite. Wow!!!!! This is truly a
home away from home. We walked into a lovely living/dining room with a fully equipped kitchen.
The separate bedroom & bath were top notch. Each of the rooms has windows you can open
and overlooks the harbor. Lots of nesting birds and country smells can be enjoyed from the comfortable seating on the balcony. There is a fabulous restaurant on site and complimentary
coffee in a lobby cafe. If you want more they'll fix you an egg or a breakfast sandwich which you can take with you.Another choice is to go out for breakfast a short drive away or buy some goodies and have breakfast on your terrace. Close to the beach and to a sister property Harbor Grand.Other pluses;powder room,dishwasher,shower & tub. Truly top notch.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are great but the ones above the 1st floor probably give you more privacy.

We drove a little over an hour from Chicago and this was the perfect break from city life. The hotel is right on the harbor, beautiful views, a short pleasant walk to the main street and the stray dog, complimentary bikes to explore the area and primo coffee also complimentary in the lobby cafe. Our room was like an apartment with a full kitchen, full bath plus powder room, and a balcony to sit and sip the evening away.
