Reviewed 7 June 2012

I stayed here long term and had a good long term stay in a standard one room studio. The room when I first moved in had a little bit of mold but that was taken care of in a few days with some bleach and paint. I was greeted was a gorgeous view of the ocean each day. This place is relatively nice for students and who's expectations aren't as high as a vacationer. I was happy as there was twice weekly cleaning, adequate A/C and hot water. Cons: kitchen was tiny w/ no microwave and sink could hold only a few plates. Walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbors from every side and above you as well as down from the beach when they play music. Invest in some earplugs. Sometimes requests for things to be done (i.e. refill on the propane for the stove/oven, another light bulb etc) take many many tries, really depends on who is behind the counter at the time. There seems to be poor communication among the staff. Either that or many of the staff members don't want to take care of a lot of the problems or know how to.

The medium sized pool gets cleaned once a week and was a nice break from the studying. There are lounge chairs but the cushions are torn and old. The patio sitting area is dirty and doesn't get much cleaning. Major remodeling needs to be done here as this place is falling apart but efforts are made to patch it up as much as possible. There are only 2 washing machines and 2 dryers for the entire hotel that we prayed wouldn't breakdown. The dryers only seem to blow out cold air because nothing seems to get dry at a reasonable time. Even then, I had to do laundry at the oddest hours because they are in constant use for these 70+ units.

Restaurant: More like a deli and nothing too special in terms of food and quality. The setting is nice however - in a cave-like design with gorgeous views. The restaurant seems to be always empty - staff and patrons. No one is there to seat you when you arrive, you have to go looking for the staff. Had few strands of chef's hair on my meal that I had taken to go-last time I ate there. Has potential to be great but far from it now.

Room Tip: Requesting a room on the left, you may get a nice view of the famous Grand Anse Beach. Getting a roo...

The view of Grand Anse Beach and the beautiful atmosphere were fantastic.The food was great.The building environment was poor with rats and snakes and other crawling creatures.The workers are friendly,makes you feel at home but I think the supervisor works them too hard as if they are slaves. It's sad to say ...

The rooms at Grand View Inn were awful and poorly maintained. The food was good but the hotel was short staffed. The internet service was spotty at best. Security was lax on the site and someone broke into one of the rooms and attacked one of the guests. It has turned me off the country for the rest of the year at the very least. Be very careful when going there. Check the rooms to ensure that the security chain is present and lock your doors at all times.

The view of Grand Anse Beach, bay, and "Town" is priceless. Room rate was reasonable - the facilities were clean and staff friendly but room and grounds could use some sprucing up. We didn't find that there was a restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until last day of our 3 night stay - no signage, no recommendation from staff. For view and price, would definitely stay there again.

I had the privilege of being a long-term guest at the Grandview while studying medicine at SGU. The facilities were among the best on the island: clean, spacious rooms, with unmatched views of Grand Anse Beach, St. George's Bay, and Morne Rouge Beach. The sand of Grand Anse beach, as well as the Dive Grenada scuba operation are a two minute walk down the hill. The best supermarket on the island is a ten minute walk from the Inn, as is a first class gym (Body and Soul), both located at the Spiceland Mall.

We made frequent use of the pool, which overlooks Morne Rouge, as well as the internet lounge, located above the lobby. Laundry facilities are located on-site, and the Inn has laundry service available. We rented a car from the on-site agency which was trouble-free and well-kept.

The staff is incredibly helpful, friendly, and professional. They genuinely made us feel like family. Everyone, from the housekeepers to the waitress at the restaurant (which has the best view of any restaurant on the island!), to the desk staff, to the owners, made us feel at home. The hotel has a mix of long-term residents, students at SGU, as well as short-term guests. Both experience the same high level of service and wonderful accommodations. I brought my wife, kids, and other relatives in several times for holiday, which we all immensely enjoyed. I look forward to returning on holiday when I complete my medical degree!

This was my first visit, and the hotel has a great location and the staff is very friendly. However, the room was not to my expectation. A lot could be done in terms of decor to be in line with its location and view from the balcony. The food at the restaurant was excellent, and the view from the restaurant's balcony...... magnificent.

A lot of maintainance needs to be done to the buildings.
