This was our third stay at The Grand Hotel and have yet to be disappointed. The stay was perfect and in a great location. Beached it everyday with the pass provided by the Hotel and simply loved it! Can't wait to return next summer!

The Grand Hotel is beautifully decorated, and the rooms were very quiet while right in the heart of the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area. Our room, 206 had comfortable seating. The bed was very comfy as well as the pillows. The closet was spacious, and there were two dressers for storing folded clothing. The bathroom was also quite spacious with a beautifully tiled...

Loved everything about our stay here! My husband and I visited for a few days at the beginning of August, and didn't really know anything about Kennebunkport. I was hoping I picked a good spot to stay and The Grand Hotel turned out to be just perfect. Personally, I was glad we stayed in town (this hotel has the perfect...

I read the reviews and decided this seemed like the place for us especially since we did not have a car and everything was within walking distance. No amenities except for bottled water and ice. There is no shuttle service, no breakfast and no refrigerator in the room. The chairs in the room were extremely uncomfortable. We opted for a...

The hotel outside was lovely. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked the street and a charming yard ornament store next door. The bed was big and comfortable, along with the pillows. The location was also nearby many restaurants. My only complaint was that we stayed on the 2nd floor and the huge utility closet was right across from...

Beautiful old home with plenty of rooms for this to be a hotel - bright, charming style. Plenty of space in rooms, with some that have patio's or balcony's. No true amenities but you don't need them given the hotel's location. Obviously more expensive during summer season, but that's Kennebunkport/Kennebunk for you! Just go, park your car and walk everywhere!
