Once again, we stayed at the Grand on our way south, this time to Chincoteague NWR. There were three of us, so we stayed in the Oceanview Townhouse room, which has a pull out sofa, kitchen area and full bathroom on one level and a room with two queen beds and a 3/4 bathroom on a second level. The price... More

We came for a dance competition. The price was about average ($160 a night for a kitchenette off season) , the room was a little dingy and carpets could use a wash. The workout room doesn't open until 10 am on Sunday and I guess the was OK , lots of kids in there. The only real bummer was that... More

The hotel was just recently renovated. The hotel is about ¾ mile from the historic district. I booked one of the townhouse suites, they come with a pool and ocean view. It was out of season so the rates were much cheaper and the place was quieter. The room was very clean and comfortable. The suite had two levels. It... More

My daughter and I stayed 2 nights using a group rate for a local dance competition. The room we got was amazing for the price - kitchenette, 2 baths, and a loft with 2 double beds. We even had an oceanview. My daughter enjoyed the indoor pool for a swim one morning. It was a pleasure to stay here!

Upon driving up to the hotel, my husband and I saw the stairs leading up to the entrance for the hotel restaurant, and wondered where the front desk entrance was.
