We loved staying here on our honeymoon. Rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and helpful and the whole Inn is very charming. Breakfast was included and delicious and the whole place had a bit of a bed and breakfast feel. The beach is beautiful and sandy. Highly Recommend.

My husband and I married here by Ken and it was wonderful! Everyone was helpful and courteous, rooms were clean and so lovely. Stunning views of the beach. Picture perfect way to wake up in the morning. Very quaint and captured the county inn feel of Maine. Breakfast was homemade and delicious. We are making a tradition of staying here... More

We had a second floor room. (If you have an elderly person in your group, be aware that the inn has no elevator.) The beds were supportive; the best we had slept on during our two week trip! The room was spacious with two beds, a small table and two chairs, and a semi-private balcony. The AC worked well. For... More

The Seaside has been our Kennebunk Beach tradition for decades. In fact we have seen the owners' family get larger and larger. We should not praise this place too much because we may not be able to get the rooms we like the next time. A bit old style, yes, but charming and a few steps from the beach. The... More

Let me first say that this place is located in a spectacular part of Kennebunk, just yards from the beach. The beach itself and the houses located on it and near it are just beautiful. There is ample opportunity to take a stroll on the beach or on the sidewalks located along the beach. We loved having it so accessible... More

The Seaside Inn is a quiet beautiful place to get away from it all. The view from the balcony of the 2nd floor rooms is amazing. You can walk the beach or soak in the sun from your balcony. The breakfast always includes some special homemade item. This morning it was stuffed French toast! We try to go before the... More

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
