I stayed here in the winter and I think I was the only guest, which means my experience may have been abnormal. Keep in mind that my expectations were based on the 89$/night rate for the winter. Here's a few notes about my stay and regarding other concerns from other reviews: 1. Not doing renovations/updating. The comforters, sheets, and furniture...

This is our second year visiting on Valentines Day and we surely plan to make it a yearly event. The rooms are charming and the staff is very accommodating. We enjoyed a romantic evening with dinner in our room by the fireplace. It was a perfect night.

For some reason, this place attracted poor reviews on Yelp. Please ignore! It's a quaint, family-run, hotel that is a few feet from a non-public, quiet beach. They give you passes for the beach, and beach chairs! It's clean, and with a friendly staff. The breakfast in the morning wasn't that great. Which is fine, because there are great brunch...

What happened? We stayed at The Grenville approximately 10 years ago and had a wonderful stay, it didn't occur to me to read the reviews when I booked it this time. I wish I did. The reviews were spot on. A lovely hotel, at one time, that has not had ANY attention in a very long time. Everything about the...

This hotel needs a lot of everything. Services were nothing the room was not clean. The room was never done when we were there. The restaurant is a joke. The place needs management. The only good thing is the location. Someone should buy it they would make a fortune.

Location! The two stars or for the location and kind service. This is a wonderful place if you're looking for a beach stay. They provide beach towels and chairs and access to the beautiful sandy beach one block away. Lots of surfers and great place for swimming. Rooms - The whole place seems to need a serious scrub. The sheets...

Went there to spend weekend with family. I over paid big time. The only perk about this place is that it is located close to the beach and the surrounding area and houses are beautiful. This place is run down and poorly ran. They said it was booked but we never saw anyone. I had clothes thrown away in garbage,...

I wanted to get away for a few days by myself and this was perfect. Everyone was so friendly when I arrived for my stay.... Explaining the free continental breakfast ( till 11 am, so you could sleep late ), and free use of beach badges, chairs and towels.. The beach was only around the corner and one block away....

Perfect for a weekend getaway. Right off the beach with a great restaurant. Great location. Point Pleasant a short drive away. Everything you could need within walking distance. Perfect for couples or families.

We remember the Grenville as a beautiful place. What happened?? Our room was dirty. The futon was covered in sand and stains. The bathroom was dirty with hair all over the floor and in the shower. We ate dinner in the restaurant hoping the food would be what we remembered. Nope. Food was awful. Service was terrible. For the price...
