Clean, neat and accomodating!

The Grande is a very clean, relaxing hotel. There was some inconvenience when a storm knocked out the electricity for several hours on Saturday afternoon. The ad offerred internet and wifi access but it is only available in the lobby. In the room there was only one premium movie channel, HBO. There was no pay-per-view or dvd player. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We would stay here again.

Wet Weekend

Disappointed with the upkeep of the hotel. Our room had apparent water damage to one wall with the wallpaper and cove base pealing off the wall, and looked like mold behind these areas. The first morning we did not have any hot water in the bath. Very attractive hotel which is beginning to show signs of wear.

Could have been better.

The room really needs to be updated. The sliding glass doors were very noisy and difficult to open and close. The bathroom had limited space for toiletries. The kitchenette lacked any useful supplies (paper towels)so why waste the space with cabinets. The beds were uncomfortable. On the good side, the check-in and out was quick and easy. The ocean view was great, even though it wasn't ocean front - it was close enough to be.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

The Car Show was very good and the hotel is right on the boardwalk where the cars drive past on the boards.

Grand Hotel Ocean City Deficencies

Unable to use balcony because of adjoining rooms using theirs for smoking purposes, we were to have non-smoking room. Awaken at 1:30AM Sept 7, 2009 with intoxicated room neighbors using balcony for smoking. Hotel needs to place walls to make each balcony private. You can stand on your balcony and look into the adjoining rooms.

Grand Hotel is not so grand

This may have been a grand hotel in a past life but that was years ago. This hotel is rundown and in need of renovation. Carpets were worn, wall paper was peeling in places, the curtain rods in my room were pulling loose from the wall. My "ocean view" room afforded a view of the parking garage and a sliver of ocean. The trash dumpster was under my room leading to an unrequested 6 AM "wakeup call" when the garbage truck picked up the dumpster. I could go on but you get the point....

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Best dining options are on the board walk in either direction from the hotel. Our best pick was Da Vinci's by the Sea, about two blocks south on the board walk.

Good Trip

Very good. Nice location on the boardwalk. The hotel itself is very clean inside and the staff was very helpful. The location is in a spot that makes many attractions easily accessible. Unfortunately it was bike week and there was alot of noise outside, but this was unrelated to the hotel itself.
