This was a stop gap on way to Bar Harbor. Kennebunkport is gorgeous and we all loved it & wished we had a longer stay. The Inn is a bit out dated & unglamorous but spotlessly clean, in a great position & super reasonable and even offered waffles made to order as part of their complementary breakfast offer!

The address for this motel is Kennebunk, but it is 100 yards from Kennebunkport, which is great. The motel is very well maintained, not too expensive. The small town of Kennebunk is a few miles inland from here and is not the beautiful port town of Kennebunkport. The rooms are good and clean although old-fashioned. Free breakfast is good.

I stayed here two nights with my husband and two children (5 and 6). My husband, who can be a tough critic, was impressed by the value we got here. The King's Port Inn is easy walking distance from Dock Square and is less than a mile from the Kennebunk beaches. Our room was very clean. The building is older... More

This hotel is a good value; it has a great location with an easy walk across the small bridge into Kennebunkport and the shops and restaurants in Dock Square. They do have a complimentary continental breakfast with homemade waffles. The rooms could use some updating but were spacious with very comfortable beds. The pub shown on the website didn't appear...

Great location, great price, and friendly staff. The only thing keeping them from 5 star is the dated condition of the rugs and décor. We came for the Tour de Cure and were lucky to find this inn. The complimentary breakfast was also above-average.

This hotel is in the best spot for walking around and seeing all that the city has to offer. The rooms are outdated, but cozy and clean. The staff was very friendly and were so nice about giving us a double room instead of a king bed. They helped out with recommendations and everything around was walkable. I would definitely... More
