The location and type of accommodations obviously has to be just right for the holiday. The top choice is obviously a big vacation rental or luxury hotel right on the beach or as close to the lakeshore as possible. Of course, this may not always be possible for those who have to think about the budget first.
That said, there are still a huge number of options available for people with all kinds of budgets. Main Street and the streets close to it have quite a few rentals. Many offer partial lake views, and they are close to the waterfront while being easy to reach for travelers. This is just as true for people driving in towards the center of town using Ontario Street or the Bluewater Highway.
People driving in on Ontario Street will find plenty of inns, motels, hotels and B&Bs lined up along the road. There are some more on the other side, while driving towards the center of town on the Bluewater Hwy. Any of these establishments will do just fine for visitors who want to stay for a few days or a week and explore the whole region.
Speaking of attractions, one of the main things that draws people here is the Motorplex. The Grand Bend Motorplex hosts Canada's oldest and largest drag race, and it draws huge crowds too. People who are in town for this may want to find campsites, RV parks and budget lodging within easy reach.
But the biggest tourist attraction here is Lake Huron. People throng on the beaches, go fishing and hiking, and enjoy boating, water sports and other waterfront activities. For all these visitors, the best choice would be a place to stay with a lake view and fast access to the water.
To take it one step further, a private vacation home close to the lakeshore is an ideal choice for families and large groups. So this family with kids could book a home with three bedrooms. It would provide a lot more space, comfort and amenities as compared to a hotel room, and it would be quite economical too.
Look for places that offer all the standard amenities including a fully equipped kitchen and parking spots for at least two vehicles. High-speed or Wi-Fi Internet is quite common, as are cable, DVD players, music systems, refrigerators, microwaves, etc. A pullout couch would be helpful for groups that need more than three bedrooms. Some properties also have cooks, maids, drivers and other help on call for guests who need them.
Such places need to be booked a good 3-4 months ahead of time for summer holiday stays. If not, it will be almost impossible to find suitable accommodation at the last minute for a stay in Grand Bend. Booking it in advance also helps ensure that the holiday will be enjoyable and hassle-free.
