First off, it should be noted that Kennebunkport is an amazing place. Actually, Maine as a whole is a friendly, beautiful, inspiring destination.
Kennebunkport is filled with cute shops, restaurants, and scenic views. Its also filled with places to stay. One of them being the Grand.
Let's start with the good: The rooms are huge and perfectly appointed. Every inch of the hotel, was designed so well it was like you were walking through a magazine photo shoot. And lets talk about the cleanliness. I'ver never stayed in a hotel that was so clean. Beds were comfy to the max. The room had everything you needed and then some. And the location? Smack dab in the middle of everything! But if you want to explore they have bikes to borrow - at no chargw! The hotel was peaceful too - always a plus :)
Now, we get to the not so good. It should be noted that I'm being picky here, as there's nothing really that could be done about this. The hotel was really just a bunch of rooms...and not so much a hotel. There is zero "hotel experience". As a matter of fact, there's no one at the front desk after a certain hour and when we went to leave/checkout, we had to slide our keys under a door! There's no cozy lobby, no cool hotel restaurant, no grounds...nothing. Our family was staying down at the Kennebunkport Inn and were a little jealous because their hotel's lobby/bar scene was so cool and a total "experience". However, when we saw their rooms, we stopped being jealous, lol.
Overall, we would stay here again and are planning on it - because Kennebunkport was so incredible!
