Stayed here May 12th-15th. Chose this hotel because of location and on site amenities. Location fine but the hotel restaurant and pizza place they talk up on website are only open on weekends right now which we were not informed of prior to booking. Should at least be clearly stated on website. Front desk gave no help when called to ask questions. No room service available except on weekends. Their 24 hr coffee shop's espresso machine was broken the whole time we were there so we could only get regular coffee or tea. Balconies not private-rod iron railing between you and your neighbor. They put up tacky lattice on one side and a sheer screen on the other so you will get to know your neighbors if you both sit outside. A real shame but hotel far from up to par. Stay somewhere else. « less

Was in town this weekend for a volleyball tournament and stayed at the Grand for the 2nd consecutive year. Was given an upper floor room as requested which was a good start. When trying to venture onto the balcony, I soon discovered that I had to be as strong as atlas to open the sliding glass door. Don't know if it was off the track, but definitely a challenge. The glass on the door is in need of a cleaning or replacement as it is very "foggy'. Overall the Grand is an ok place to stay. but a weekend is enough for me. The only "real " issue I had was the price. It's not even memorial day weekend, and we payed $130 and $124 for the 2 nights. Way too much for early may when the town is hardly inhabited. Btw, our room # was 703. « less

The Grand hosted my family reunion for two years. We had a wonderful time! The rooms were clean, the view was great and room service was very accommodating and fast. The beach was close, and the activities were also close, but far enough away that the noise did not disturb us after dark. After returning home in both instances, the family stated they would not mind staying there again. If I had to pick a down side, the food would be it. While good, It took a bit too long arriving to our table. Because there were so many of us, it would serve better to have more than one wait staff. Aside from that the Grand Hotel is one of the best in Ocean City. (We're going back in 2014). « less

I reserved this hotel room a few weeks prior to our trip. Upon arrival, I noticed that the hotel lobby was pretty worn and definitely not a 4 star or even really a 3 star. We checked in and the front desk staff was not really pleasant. We were given our keys to our room. We got into the elevator and that was kind of scary. Sounded like it was going to break down at any minute. So we get to our room. I run my key through the electronic door lock and it opens. So I open the door and find that there are other peoples' belongings in the room!!!! I was stunned. Surely, we couldn't have been given keys to someone else's room upon check in. So we went back downstairs and told the front desk manager what happened. She confirmed that we were assigned to someone else's room. I promptly asked for a refund and went to another hotel. There was no way that I could feel safe in a hotel that just checked me in to someone else's hotel room!!! I would never, ever suggest to anyone to stay here. For the money, you could definitely find many other better places to stay. « less

Management response from Michelle Gentry, Front Office Manager
I would like to sincerely apologize for the situation that occurred during your recent check in with us. As I explained to you while you were here, there was a temporary glitch in our computer system that allowed the staff to check you into that room. This is certainly not something that is a common occurrence at the hotel; in fact, our computer system is extremely reliable and it is rare that we experience any technical issues. Despite the circumstances, we have failed you, and for this I am truly sorry. It is not our intention to ever make our guests feel as if they are not safe when staying with us, and as I mentioned, this is not the norm of the hotel.
Please contact me directly so we can discuss this matter further. We would love to invite you back so we can prove to you why we are considered Ocean City’s premier hotel on the boardwalk, and show you that this situation is not the typical behavior of the hotel. I look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards, Michelle Gentry Front Office Manager

I have stayed here several times and have not had any complaints from those visits. The hotel is not new but they do well to try and keep it clean and looking up to date. The best thing about the hotel is the location....right on the beach and near a lot of attractions. I come here about once a year for meetings and the main ballroom/event room is average as well. I don't recall having any negative (or overly positive) contact with the staff. « less
