Located right downtown Kennebunkport within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. Well maintained, with a nice restaurant and bar area. Our room was very small and the AC unit was half hidden in the closet. It's a window unit that also tends to be loud. I might stay here again but would look for a larger room.

Thank you TheTravelerDC for your review. You cannot beat our central location, walking distance from the beautiful shops and restaurants of downtown Kennebunkport. I am glad you found the inn to be well maintained. We have a maintenance and housekeeping team that works very hard to make the inn sparkle! You must have stayed in a newly renovated Riverhouse room.... More

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at the Kennebunkport Inn for our first anniversary weekend and it could not have been better! We had a King Riverhouse room that was just beautiful. Clean, comfortable, plenty of space. From the moment we arrived until we regretfully left, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the deck... More

My husband and I enjoyed the Inn with a newly renovated room (cute decor), great food at the restaurant and convenience being right in town. Used bikes (cruisers) from the Inn for a nice ride around town. Go to The Clam Shack for the best lobster rolls!

Thank you gaucho1987 for your review. We are so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The Riverhouse rooms are brand new, and they've been a hit with our guests so far! You cannot beat our central location and assortment of amenities. There's nothing like biking around Kennebunkport in the summertime. When a guest asks me about lobster rolls,... More

My Wife & I spent 4 nights here, it is a well maintained "New England Inn". The only complaint is the room size. There was a king size bed and barely enough room to walk around it. Very little storage space so with the luggage, it was extremely cramped. The bathroom was also tiny, there was a toilet, pedestal sink... More

Thank you Mark G. for your review. We have a wonderful housekeeping and maintenance team that keep the inn in tip-top condition! I am sorry that you were uncomfortable in your Riverhouse room. These rooms are most definitely our "coziest" room type on property. We do have larger rooms, with about 1/3 more space. These rooms are scheduled to be... More

We loved our stay at the Inn. We stayed in the Riverhouse and enjoyed the cleanliness of the room. The king size bed with all it's pillows, was so comfortable and with plenty of amenities. We enjoyed a bottle of wine in the afternoon on the back deck. The staff are very accommodating. The only small glitch, was an error... More

I've now stayed here three times and shame on me. First, the staff are lovely and the restaurant is well worth it. But the investment these owners are making stops there...and why should they invest a dime when they can sell out every summer night. Fix the mold/mildew problem? Nah and yes, they have serious one. In my room it... More

Lovely surprise to find a bottle of Prosecco on ice in the room with a handwritten welcome note from the staff. This is a beautiful hotel decorated in classic New England coastal colours. It's centrally located in the very busy resort but there was minimal road noise. It advertises a Continental breakfast, but actually that included a full cooked breakfast... More

Because I was so impressed with the Kennebunkport Inn during our two-night stay there in July, I'm doing something I never do -- writing a review. One thing that seemed exceptional to me was the combination of very efficient management of the inn with an very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere inside the inn. That can't be easy to do. The...

We booked the Peddle and Paddle package which included 2 night's accommodations, breakfast each morning, bike rentals, kayak rentals, a four course dinner at One Dock and a picnic lunch. Everything was excellent! There are so may little unexpected extras that were complimentary, such as: beach parking passes, beach chairs and towels. It made our stay so much more enjoyable... More
