We stayed two nights at the Grand Hotel. Everything was terrific. The elegantly furnished room, luxurious linens ( which smelled so fresh as if they had been hung on a line!) and a parting gift of water and a snack for the road makes a stay here worthwhile. The only downside for us was the din of motorcycles and delivery...

Dear Oakleaf, Thank you for your forthright review of the Grand Hotel. We realize the summertime hustle and bustle of town is not for everyone and are sorry the activity intruded on your stay. We're glad you enjoyed your room, the linens, and the other thoughtful appointments. The departure bag of water and gummy lobsters is always something with which...

The Grand Hotel is really well located with easy parking and wonderful staff. The room we stayed in overlooked town and looked newly decorated. It was immaculate and so well cared for. This hotel doesnt have amenities but is a pleasure to have stayed in. Will definitely return!

Our room was beautiful and nice taken care of. They have a hospitality bar on the 2nd floor that includes a few games, sweet and savory treats, ice and a few other things. Any time we needed recommendations or help at the front desk they were more than accommodating.

This hotel is great. From check in to check out we were very comfortable here and sad to leave.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at The Grand, so much so that we decided to extend our stay an extra night.

We stayed in a King room at The Grand Hotel and had a lovely night.
