My husband and I got away sans kids for the first time since they were born....11 years ago! We were quite excited. The day before we went up to KBPT my husband found out he had Lyme's disease. So a romantic weekend became one of rest and recovery. The hotel was comforting and relaxing. Everything was spotless, the staff were...

We were celebrating a special anniversary as well as our 60th birthday. We were greeted with glasses of prosecco. There was a whoopie pie waiting for us in the room! The room was clean, comfortable, elegant and had a balcony. When we left, we were given a bag with water, cookies and other niceties for the ride home. I hope...

Our travel agent highly recommended The Grand Hotel. We stayed for three nights and loved every minute. The Grand has the luxurious feel of a five star hotel withe the quaintness of a B & B.

The Grand Hotel is perfectly situated for never having to use your car -- just walk everywhere and enjoy! The hotel is so very clean and has a crisp feel to it. We have also stayed in the other hotels in the Kennebunkport Resort Collection, and each of them offer wonderful amenities!

We just stayed for the long Labor Day weekend at the Grand Hotel. It was wonderful! We live outside Portland and I grew up in the Kenenbunk area and this was a wonderful treat. And we will go again!! It is a wonderful hotel and in the best location. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need.

The Grand Hotel is beautifully decorated, and the rooms were very quiet while right in the heart of the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area. Our room, 206 had comfortable seating.

I read the reviews and decided this seemed like the place for us especially since we did not have a car and everything was within walking distance. No amenities except for bottled water and ice. There is no shuttle service, no breakfast and no refrigerator in the room. The chairs in the room were extremely uncomfortable. We opted for a...

The hotel outside was lovely. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked the street and a charming yard ornament store next door. The bed was big and comfortable, along with the pillows.
