We stayed at the King's Port Inn just for one evening for a getaway to Kennebunkport. As others have said, the location is perfect and we had a very large, clean, and comfortable room for a great price since it is off-season. If it hadn't snowed so hard, we would have been able to walk everywhere we wanted to go.... More

We chose the Kind's Port Inn because of the reasonable price, great location, and jacuzzi bath tub. I had read several reviews that made the hotel and rooms sound run down, which could not have been further from what we experienced. Although the room was small, the decor fit with historic Kennebunkport charm. The four post bed was large, beautiful,... More

This old colonial motel has tried to make the best of a building more suited to hotels of yesteryear. Our third floor room was clean and comfortable but in need of a little TLC. Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice and a very helpful member of staff who worked hard to keep everything well stocked and tidy. The reception... More

We stayed at The Kings Port Inn as a one night stopover on the way to Bar Harbor, and this motel style accommodation was perfectly located for both the beach and the gorgeous little town of Kennebunkport. We had the end ground floor unit, which was great for just parking up outside, but there was a musty chemical smell when... More

We chose this inn for the location en route up the coast of Maine. It was very affordable and included a modest buffet breakfast. The room was very spacious and had all the amenities you would need. It was a bit worn, but very clean. The inn was located just across the bridge from the cute little town of Kennebunkport.... More

This is a modest Inn in Kennebunk. It is a at the end of a drag that leads into to Kennebunkport, so you can walk to shops and restaurants nearby. It is not next to the beaches, which is probably what makes the rates so affordable. Our room was small but comfortable and very clean. The carpet was a bit... More
