Grand Victorian
Reviewed 8 August 2012

What a perfect week I spent with my 6 yr. old grand-daughter at the Grand Victorian #511. We took the 2 hr. train from Boston and arrived 3 blocks from the condo. My grand-daughter made friends at the pool and we invited them to front row seats for thursday night fireworks on our balcony. It rained one day, so we walked to a discount bookstore, bought a game at the toy store and some sweets at the candy shop. I can not imagine a more convenient location, on the beach and close to restaurants and stores. The condo was nicely decorated, clean and had everything we needed. I shall return.

The veiw was amazing and I loved it well worth the money had a great view of the fireworks can't wait to go back. You have everything in walking distance. Its very safe and clean. If you have children there lots for them to do and if you don't there tons of things to do for the adults. The condo has 24 hour secuity and its very safe.

Couldn't be closer to the beach or the pier/boardwalk. Very convenient to walk right on to the beach and grab some french fries. The front desk staff were excellent. Surprisingly not too loud. Only complaint was a very weak wireless internet signal.

Room Tip: It's more expensive to have an ocean view. We had a "side ocean view," which was fine...

The condo unit 411 was everything and more than we expected. We rented from Chris Kelley at Apex Luxury Rentals. She was excellent and quick to find us what we were looking for. We had 8 people in our party and we all had plenty of room. We didn't even use the pull out couch in one bedroom and the one in the living room. The kitchen has everything, fridge with water and ice maker, dishwasher, range top on counter, stove, quality coffee machine, disposal, toaster, etc; nice granite counter tops. Place was immaculate when we arrived. We came early to spend the day on the beach before we checked in at 4:00PM. To our surprise we asked the staff if there was a chance of early check-in and she informed us the room was ready at 11:30AM. The staff was courteous and always eager to help with everything from questions, vale ting the car or even helping us to our room with our groceries for the week. Had a few minor issues that were promptly fixed by the maintenance people within an hour. They were awesome as well. You can't get any closer to the heart of Old Orchard beach. Our balcony overlooked Palace Playland, along with spectacular views of the ocean. I think the biggest treat was watching the fireworks from our balcony. With the Ferris wheel as a backdrop, it looked like a postcard. It felt like our own private show. I've been coming to Old Orchard Beach for 30 years and this place will be home for me from now on. Already rented for next year.

We have just returned home from our annual trip to the Grand Victorian. My family lives in Tennessee and we have other family in Maine. We have picked Old Orchard Beach to have our reunion. We have stayed in different places, but have picked the Grand Victorian for the past five years! The staff is now like part of our family, too. Everyone is so kind and helpful during our stay. The condo is superb! Everything is so clean. We love being in the middle of all the activites of Old Orchard Beach. Plan on staying in the Grand Victorian if you want a carefree vacation!

Room Tip: Stay below the fifth floor if you want a covered balcony.

5 women in our 60s who have been friends since childhood rented a unit at the Grand Victorian for our annual "Goddess Week" together. 3 of the 5 of us actually met in OOB so it was a blast from the past for us. The staff was professional and very helpful, the place was spotless, there was ample sleeping space and bathroom space, we were able to do laundry en suite, had a great view from the balconey and we were just steps from the beach and everything else going on in town. We'll definitely go back. Yes, it was a bit noisy on the weekend evenings but not extremely late. Houligan's on the Pier has good food and do not miss J-J's around the corner on Old Orchard Street for very reasonably priced good meals any time of day. OOB has changed since we were kids....but we were able to be kids again!

We had an amazing stay at the Grand Victorian. My 9 year old loved the amusement park next door. How convenient. Our room was beautiful and really clean. I highly recommend Tim he was really helpful and gave great tips for things to do with our daughter.
