Great food but tiny rooms!

3.6 on July 05, 2016

We weren't expecting a suite and didn't plan to spend a lot of time in our room before we came. However, we didn't expect a room the size of some closets in a larger house. The expression "not enough room to change your mind" would be very apropos. But that is the only negative I can think of. The included breakfast they have is outstanding and my wife wants to come back just for that when we are in the area again. The service from maid to wait staff to general staff is exceptional. I must note a detail: my wife left a jacket there that at many hotels/inns would never have been reported. However, as we were driving home I got a call advising that it had been left. They expeditiously mailed it back to us. One more thing on dining: we ate dinner there one night. It is undeniably pricey - expect to pay three figures for dinner - but ecellent.


8 years and counting...love the Grand Vivtorian!

Very Nice B&B

Had a very nice stay here for a weekend. The bed was comfortable, the view fantastic, accommodations were overall very nice. The only semi-negative thing I would say is that the room was TINY! I am also going to rave about the free breakfast at the Black Trumpet restaurant. The food was delicious and much more than you would expect for a complimentary breakfast. Overall I would recommend this place highly!


Lovely place!

A girlfriend and I went on a quick overnight for our 50th birthdays to Spring Lake and stayed in one of the Grand Victorian's twin rooms. Room was lovely and very comfortable. We brought a bottle of wine and were hanging out on the sofas in the parlor and the restaurant was nice enough to give us wine glasses. The breakfast on the porch in the morning was delicious and with the weather nice enough to eat outside, it was so lovely and peaceful looking over at the ocean. We really hated to leave, and one night is definitely not enough. Nice people there :-)

The hotel is a little run down looking on the outside, but is very clean. Rooms were much smaller than expected. The bathroom is a decent size, but the shower was small. We also did not have a current flow of warm water during showers and would get 2-3 brief spurts of ice cold water. Showers were taken at off times, so I don't think it was due to toilets flushing. The area is very nice and the food in the restaurant downstairs is wonderful. Breakfast was included, so that was great. For a couple of days this hotel is nice, but I wouldn't stay more than 2 nights due to the size of rooms, etc.

This was a great value for a place right across the street from the beach. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating.


all went fine

right by the beach. Perfect spot


Will not come back

Cold air from air conditioner blowing directly on bed is bad. No refrigerator in room. Most important that there is no sitting space on the porch because it is all taken by the restaurant.


Terrific Location

My husband and I went to Spring Lake to celebrate our anniversary. The town and beach are every bit as lovely as was described to us by long-time vacationers. The Grand Victorian's location is perfect for those looking to spend as much time as possible at the beach. Having a terrific full breakfast included in the price of the stay is an added bonus.Although we didn't use them, they have beach towels and chairs there for guests to use, which is nice for those who don't want to drag their own from home. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. On the down side, the hot water in our shower was awful - it ran too hot and then ice cold no matter what time of the day you took a shower. The shower itself was clean but very old and small. The bath towels were cheap, nearly threadbare and small and the free bath amenities are tinsy tiny (enough shampoo for one person, one time) and they weren't replenished by the cleaning staff. The much talked about restaurant has good food, but on our first night there they insisted on seating us in a room in the back near the kitchen (after we asked to sit on the porch) when nearly the entire restaurant was empty. Needless to say, we did not eat there the next night. With a few minor changes the Grand Victorian could be truly unforgettable. As it stands, we will come back to Spring Lake, perhaps not the Grand Victorian.
