The Grand Motel is a nice peice of history in Griffith. The rooms are huge with some of the highest ceilings I have seen. If you want to be in a quiet area but still close to all shops, stay at The Grand Motel.

The reception area is very modern with a great staircase but that is where it ended. Our room was very small with NO WINDOWS. there was a skylight but you cannot operate it yourself and the window with it in the roof is small so useless making the air in the room smell musty. The furniture is old and tattered....

Thank you for your review. I'd love to first address your concerns. we clearly advertise that a lot of our rooms have no windows and also make a point of explaining this to our guest on arrival.

Car parking is secure underground which is an added bonus...
