We come to the Seaside every spring for our anniversary, and have just had another lovely four night stay. As always, the location is stunningly beautiful, with sea views that go on forever. Our room was immaculate, comfortable and looked to have some fresh updates. The staff is superb....caring, accommodating, knowledgeable, but never obtrusive. (They will clean room your room... More

It took my breath away when we pulled in to the drive, the setting is amazing. This is a classic seaside inn, the rooms are huge and spotless, two queen beds seating area and extra sink. We had a first floor Ocean View room that was perfect. I had my grandson and they don't allow children under 13 on the... More

It is always nice to have a guest want to return again. We tend not to look at the view as we are working but every once in a while we take a minute to look out the deck and the view gets us every time. Because of local ordinance we are not allowed to have cooking in the rooms.... More

Lovely inn with great staff and amazing views of the ocean. We got engaged on the beach at the Seaside and it was perfect. The staff was great and so helpful when recommending a restaurant to celebrate our engagement. Even in the off-season, it was a great weekend getaway. We loved Kennebunkport and look forward to staying at the Seaside... More

Congratulations on your engagement. I am actually performing a wedding on the beach today for some guests. If you decide on a small civil service come on up and we can perform the service. Thank you so much and we hope to see you after the wedding. More

Ocean view.......wonderful breakfast(muffins were amazing) historic and a skip to the gorgeous beach! Staff was friendly. Fridge in the room. Quiet neighborhood.The only draw back was thin walls dealing with neighbors.

I stay here every summer with my family, for my whole life, and I have never had a bad experience yet! The long strip of beach, that you can walk right out to in less than 2 minutes from your room, is one of the most beautiful on all of the New England coast. After a storm, you can find... More

It is so nice to hear that you found your stay relaxing. That is what we try for here at The Seaside. We want a very quiet atmosphere so our guests can come and get away. If you walk down the hall after 9pm it is silent and that is how we like it. Thank you so much for making... More

The inn has two floors but children are not allowed to stay in second floor rooms. But the rooms on the second floor have a much better ocean view. I've stayed on both floors and prefer the top floor. Rooms are spacious, bathroom is small but acceptable. Some aspects of the rooms are frayed a bit at the edges but... More

We stayed here in the dead of winter. Inn is very comfortable: while quaint, also some modern amenities. Breakfast was hearty and tasty, especially the freshly baked muffins and the good bowl of oatmeal. Given the season, it was also blissfully quiet, allowing time for reflection and rest. Staff is friendly and very efficient, and helpful about local restaurants and... More

We stayed here in the off season just before Thanksgiving. The hotel was mostly empty so we had a great rate for an premium oceanfront room. It's an older small boutique hotel that has been kept up and aged well and has a lot of character and history. The bath could use a remodel and it shows the wear of... More
