Your host, Lou, will make your stay always as comfortable as possible. The rooms are lovely and immaculate. Many rooms have hardwood floors which is a huge bonus for allergy suffers. The motel has a lovely view of Wilmington Mt. And conveniently located to restaurants and local attractions. This Is a great find.

The Grandview is a clean, quiet motel in a beautiful surrounding town. The owner was also very obliging and helpful. For example, when I stopped along the route, he provided me with directions and made sure that I knew where I was going (it can get slightly confusing to get to Wilmington from the Northway if you've never done it...

We stayed one night at the Grand View and were totally satisfied. Our reservation at another local motel had not been kept for us and Lou was happy to accommodate our needs for the night.
