My wife and I spent two nights here on a road trip through New England. During the trip we stayed in a variety of hotels, B&Bs and inns. Here, we had a motel type room which suited us down to the ground. We liked the wee fridge which chilled the water and drinks. We availed ourselves of the coffee in... More

We stayed for one night at the King's Port Inn. It's a motel style accommodation and our expectations were met. The room was quiet and clean and the beds were quite comfortable. Wifi worked well, the shower was ok (decent water pressure, shower curtain smelled) and we did not have breakfast in the Inn.

We booked the Kingsport Inn assuming from the website description and photos that this was a traditional Cape Cod style B and B Instead we found it to be a budget run motel accommodation. The amenities in the room were very sparse and did not include coffee or bottled water. The breakfast was only a sparse continental breakfast of a... More

Friendly and comfortable Inn near the bridge into Kennebunkport. Host was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a great size and in very good condition. Breakfast pancakes were very good. We enjoyed our stay and would stay at Kings Port again.

Fast but brusque check in. Second floor rooms WARNING - NO ELEVATOR. We had two rooms, king and a double queen. Large rooms, but old and in poor repair. Peeling wallpaper, water stained ceiling, broken blinds, cheap mattress and bedding. Fresh made waffles and local coffee along with other standard continental breakfast fare. Great location, walking distance to dining and... More

The Kingsport Inn is in a great location right next to all of the major restaurants and shops of Kennebunkport. Their staff is very polite and professional. The rooms are reasonably priced and are very comfortable. We try to visit at least once a year.

You really can't beat the location of the King's Port Inn. It's convenient to almost everything! Our room was comfortable and clean, although dated. The whirlpool tub and dual shower were a nice touch. The free breakfast was the usual "free breakfast hotel fare," but good. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Downside: The hotel could really use a facelift.... More
