Grant Hotel Stay

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: The view.
Cons: Repair the peeling wall covering in the room and modernize the rooms more.
Location: The boardwalk and beach are in good low traffic areas. We had to travel north several blocks or more to find good restaurants.
The room was okay and the view was good. Their coffee shop was subpar, the coffee was watered down and the food was overpriced. We couldn't get a wrap or Panini for lunch because they ran out of food. The pool was okay and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Overall this was an average hotel stay with nothing outstanding.

On the beach but no luxury....

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Lobby just didn't do anything for us. It may have been nice when it was built but it was just okay. I guess there is nothing in OC that doesn't get trashed all summer. We did enjoy hearing the ocean and the view and that is what I feel I paid for....no breakfast, no umbrella included, tiny towels to use at the beach or pool. Staff seemed fine.

Not impressed

Posted Aug 26, 2014
While this hotel wasn't horrible, it for sure wasn't grand. The balconies had no privacy. The outdoor pool was tiny and dirty. The hotel staff had no idea where the sauna was located when we called to ask (it was a small wooden box hidden in a bathroom that we accidentally found on our last day). The beds were very uncomfortable and squeaky and our room had a musty smell. Only positive about this hotel was the location. Right on the beach and within walking distance to some food places and bars.

Not worth the money

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Check in was very unfriendly and rude. no one to take bags up to room. Had room cleaned and they didn't even change the sheets. They didn't replace paper cups hot and cold that we used. And didn't replace same amount of towels and wash clothes used. Had to ask for replacment cups. Carpet had 2 inches of dust along the walls and corners.

Bathroom was dirty with hair all over the tub, the room didnt look clean especially the carpet and the furniture. We had to call and complain for them to properly clean it. The staff was not too friendly, seemed very out of it and had attitude when we asked for late check out.

Pros: Location, view, staff.
Cons: Would have been a great stay with more comfortable seating and bed - these would not be difficult to remedy.
Great location and view. Room was very spacious. D├ęcor was attractive but furnishings (chairs, bed) were quite uncomfortable. I understand the reason for the ceramic tile floor but it did give the room a 'pedestrian' feel that wasn't appealing for a sleeping area.

Noisy room

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: Good location.
Cons: Need to make the rooms quieter.
Location: The boardwalk and access to the beach.
The room was incredibly noisy during the nights from some mechanical equipment. I called the front desk and they sent someone up. He did something somewhere and got the noise down for about half an hour, but then the noise came back loud as ever. We did not have good sleep for two nights.
