The Grand View Motel is the place to stay for any family looking to spend hours of fun in the sun, sand and waves of Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. The motel is just steps away from the beach, while not being influenced by the hustle and bustle of the main strip. This combination provides the perfect place for any family looking to have a relaxing vacation. However, for the nights that you do feel an itch to get out on the town, downtown is only a short walk away. In this downtown area, you can find fun shopping, food and even mini-golf! If you’re feeling even more adventurous, the great town of Portsmouth is only a short drive away. Portsmouth contains quaint shops, great seafood and historic sites. All of these great attractions, along with great service and accommodations, will help ensure that everyone has a wonderful time while staying at the Grand View Motel.

It's not a 5 star because they're still working on updating a variety of things, but it was clean and everything worked and the staff were very attentive and responsive. Unless you want to pay the big bucks, you won't find too many better options high season at Hampton Beach,

Well, we thought the recent TripAdvisor reviews were an indication that the rooms here have been renovated but our room (#5) was anything but. First time at Hampton Beach - staying 3 nights for Labor Day weekend. Beds are creaky and oldish, as are the linens. Very old dresser, nightstand, bathroom sink. Tiny TV about the size of my computer monitor - can’t even see the tennis ball in the US Open matches. Towels are so worn they’re like sandpaper - worse than rags you can buy at Ocean State. Everything metal was rusty and paints peeling. Paper thin walls means the thumping from upstairs are like they’re bowling above our heads. Worst thing is there’s no shade or blind on the frosted glass door so as soon as the sun comes up, the whole room explodes with bright light. We complained and the guy just nailed up a sheet on the door! We stayed 3 nights and not a single day have the linens or towels been changed. Even though we asked for no housekeeping the first day because we were in and out, they just didn’t bother the rest of the time. Not recommended!
