Walking distance to restaurants. The owners were very sweet, kind and welcoming. Looking forward to our 2017 trip. (only complaint is I couldn't bring my...

My husband asked about the rates being lower on their website rather than what we got on hotel.com. Big mistake. The man behind the desk didn't want to discuss the discrepancy and accused my husband of being to trashed to have the conversation. Yes he did have a few drinks, but was asking in a respectful way why we were...

We had no reservation and just pulled in and got a room. The rooms were clean and comfortable but had no cell phone service and no WiFi. But the VIEW made up for all of that !!!! The moon over the ocean was breathtaking as was the sunrise the next morning. I would stay there again.

Pluses - the views; across the street from beach; friendly, helpful front desk; our bed was excellent; large balcony, pool, nice room overall. I would have given a higher rating, but the minuses mostly have to do with this being an older property. The shower blasts you with cold water if a nearby guest uses their water. No shelf or...

My husband and I spent 3 days and 2 nights at the Grand View Inn. We very much enjoyed the balcony overlooking the ocean; the fresh ocean breeze sweeping through our room and being just across the road from the beach. We watched fishing boats right outside our door. There is also a heated pool which I enjoyed. The fridge,...

The location is gorgeous. Directly across the street from the ocean. The sound of the ocean is fantastic ( for light sleepers, the road is very close). Sunrise views are incredible. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The local trolley (bus) stops right outside the motel. The room was clean. Clean towels were provided every day and housekeeping did...

I have visited Long Sands Beach in York, Maine for over 50 years! I often stay at the Grandview and have never had a disappointing time there. Staff are friendly and resourceful. Accommodations are clean and comfortable and include an indoor heated swimming pool, air conditioning, television, Free WiFi, and refrigerator.

Nice place overall, a bit dated ( to be expected at this price ). View is amazing, just be prepared for some road noise, but once again to be expected because of location. Office ( owners ) are super friendly and helpful. I can only speak for our room but the mattress absolutely murdered our backs, super mushy. Decks are...

The view was breathtaking. The people who work there are super nice and accommodating; even let us check in early. The hotel is older, the rooms are pretty plain but very clean. My biggest grip is the beds and pillows were not very comfortable... The beds seem a bit old.

The hotel was quaint, it had a nice pool, and a great view. There weren't many ammenities, but for one night wasn't bad. Parking was inconvenient as the management makes you park behind the hotel to "not block the view". If in the area I would look around before I chose this hotel again, but it's not out as an...

“2nd & 3rd floor best view”

“Excellent views from 2nd & 3rd floors, but have to deal with outside wooden stairs.”

“It looks like most every room has a great view.”
 of 5 bubbles linbatch, 4 Aug 2016 | Read review
“All rooms have ocean view. Corner rooms have additional window. Wooden stairs are tight and rickety if you are not agile.”
  • The ceiling is very dated and dingy looking.
  • A bed skirt to cover this would give the room a less dated feel
  • The view from a corner room
  • Sunrise from the balcony
