We stayed at Marine Grand Resort for 4 nights (early August 2014). We came to the area for the wineries and Casino. We were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are more like a condo than hotel. We had a complete kitchen, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, utensils, etc. along with a dining table and living room with fold out sofa. Also had an electric fireplace & our room, being an end room had 2 balconies with chairs - nice for overlooking the harbor. Our room was on the 2nd floor at the very end of the building - furthest from the lobby, restaurant/bar, coffee shop, but nice & quiet end overlooking the harbor. There was a separate large bedroom with a very comfortable king bed & a huge bathroom with double sinks, shower and separate deep tub. Although there was a small coffee maker in the kitchen which was supplied daily with coffee, etc. There is also the coffee shop - Joe's just off the lobby. Standard coffee is free & very good. They have pastries & snacks & 24-hr a day ice cream is available. They will bring it to your room if you wish after the coffee shop hours. There is a nice bar and tavern (Bentwood Tavern) there. We did not eat there but the food smelled wonderful. We were not there on a weekend so the bar on the rooftop deck was not opened. We did take our drinks from the Bentwood Tavern with us up to the rooftop deck a couple of nights - very nice view & comfortable seating - not a huge deck though. The only thing that would have been nice to have was a toaster in the kitchen. The space between the one wall & the bed was a little narrow...but overall it was really a nice place to stay. Hotel staff were all very nice & accommodating. We called the front desk for something & they delivered it within minutes. There are also indoor & outdoor pools and an indoor hot tub. Towels are supplied & are large. If you want to go down the street a bit to the beach they provide towels & beach chairs. Bicycles are also free to ride.
