Just spent a long weekend at this downhome inn by the sea. While not completely disappointed, we found the Inn lacking in many aspects. The rooms though spotless, are dated and need some TLC. The breakfast was a fairly standard continental breakfast---cereals, hard-boiled eggs, fruit and toast with excellent fresh muffins. Although the staff was helpful and accommodating, we had... More

We are so sorry for the issue with the hot water. We did make several calls to local plumbers to come and fix the issue. We finally were able to have a plumber change a water pump Sunday morning. We try to fix every issue as fast as we can get a contractor to respond. We hope you will give... More

We love staying at Seaside Inn! As others have said, it is comfortable, extremely clean, and spectacular because of the ocean view and the proximity to a gorgeous beach. The breakfasts are special, with homemade, hot items in a lovely dining room. We especially like going off-season, taking advantage of special pricing. We plan to go back again and again.

We spent one delightful night while in town for an event. Where do I start? It is rare to find such a friendly, family owned, charming place to stay. The Inn has an incredible history but the friendly staff make it great. We were in a 2nd floor terrace view room and found the bed comfortable and the room spotlessly... More

Just got back from a too short wkend and loved it. Great location w the ocean 100 yards from your sliding glass door. Spend the extra bucks for oceanside rooms...its worth it. Half mile to downtown village. All in all the best location and overall hotel experience iv had in coastal Maine. Friendly staff and many "regular guests" it appeared... More

My sister and her husband chose this hotel as a place for friends and family to stay for their wedding this past August. We booked many rooms, and stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is great, clean rooms, great grounds and amenities. But it was the staff that really made it a wonderful stay! They were beyond accommodating to us,... More

The Seaside Inn is a delight in the off season. Ocean views and sitting in the hot tub while the snow is falling. I can't think of any other place where this can happen. Service and hospitality does not take a vacation in the off season and the staff makes you feel at home. We return every year in November... More

Our entire staff would like to thank you for your kind words. We really do look forward to all of our guests returning each year. You are right about the view from the hot tub. During a winter storm it is the best place to sit and watch the surf. We look forward to welcoming you back in November. More

My family has been visiting the Seaside Inn for the past four summers. Every year just gets better and better. What had originally been planned as a one time trip to Kennebunkport has turned into four consecutive summers which in large part is due to the Seaside. We love seeing Nancy and Neil and the rest of staff year after... More

It is so nice that you have made The Seaside a summer tradition. Each year we look at the guests returning and we always recognize the names and the staff remembers their preferences and we do our best to accomodate them. Nancy is amazing with recalling guest's birthdays and anniversaries. Neil can always be counted on to know which rooms... More

Just visited Seaside with my sister's. it was a 2 night "sisters get away." Had never been to Kennebunkport just Orgunquit. One thing I learned is in this area you either have "beach" location OR shopping/restaurants. Hard to find both in one location like Ogunquit. Seaside was the perfect beach location as the motel is located right on the ocean... More

First I would like to thank you for choicing The Seaside for your girls getaway. We don't just cater to any one specific group. We try to make everyone feel at home when you are here. If we get a comment of a room being a little loud we feel it is more gentle to leave a note than go... More

I have been staying at this hotel for 25 years, and it keeps getting better. I was there this past July and enjoyed a beautifully refreshed second floor ocean view room.
