4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We booked 2 nights last minute here after our weekly cottage rental ended and we wanted to extend our stay in Kennebunkport, and were pleased to discover this place. While it needs some updating, our room was clean and comfortable and the free breakfast was a great bonus. The pool area and outside bar/grill also provided a fun place to... More

The woman in charge, presumably the manager, was very rude and unwelcoming. We all felt uncomfortable, and would never recommend staying there. Room was dirty, musty and dated. WiFi didn't work. The pool was nice, but hot tub was dirty. The unfriendly and miserable employees ruined the experience. Overpriced.....staying at any other place would be an improvement.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. This really surprises me as the Manager is always complimented on her helpfulness and congeniality. We are in the process of upgrading all rooms and, as a matter of fact, eight more rooms are being done this week. I do understand about the WiFi. The system we have been using... More

We just returned from a pleasant stay at the Rhumb Line Resort , and felt we had a good experience overall. We had a young child with us and he loved the pool just outside our room, where he met and played with other young folks. We in turn liked having a casual open air resto just outside our room,...

We were sorely disappointed in this "Resort" that we were looking forward to. Musty smell greeted us in basement room.....stains on mattress, paint falling off balcony and mouldy chairs. Indoor pool closed....exercise room closed. Really we asked for an up-grade and it was not much better. My suggestion....spend some extra money and stay over at the Yachtsman lodge......on Kennebunkport River....where... More

A nice place to stay close to the town of Kennebunkport. It was reasonably priced and was only a few minutes to the beach which was great! Rooms were clean and staff was pleasant. The resort also included an indoor and outdoor pool which were nice options at the end of the day.

We just returned from a short vacation to Kennebunkport, Maine. Stayed at the Rhumb Line Resort. This resort is a short drive to Kennebunkport. Four family members stayed in 2 queen rooms, ground level, pool side. Mom, dad, adult son and his fiancé. Rooms were next door to each other. We spent early mornings and evenings sitting outside these rooms... More

I grew up coming to the Rhumb Line with my little brother & family during our school April vacations. Have been many times since and introduced my wife's family here. We got engaged on goose rocks beach so this area & the rhumb line have a special place in our hearts. Melony & Kate are very accommodating at reception desk... More

This is going to be a long review. But the short version is that we were given a room we clearly did not book and told that it WAS the room when we pointed out the differences. We were charged for the room we did not get and the place is dated and overpriced overall. We booked a room in... More

I am so sorry you did not have a good experience here. I don't know why a desk attendant would tell you that you could have a king facing the woods. We don't have any king rooms that are on the wooded side. All those rooms have double queen beds. We also don't have a fourth floor. The renovated rooms... More

The stay was just alright for the price that we had to pay. It was clean and decent but my wife had some issues with the service but not about the physical aspects of the hotel itself. I'm not going to go into details in this post and will keep it short and sweet.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and overall had a good stay. The midweek special price included breakfast as well as a gift certificate for their restaurant. Our room was a little outdated but they were trying to make some updates and overall it was quiet and clean. There was a small balcony which overlooked the pool/restuarant area. It is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. I do know that our Admiral's Table gets a bit busy at certain times, especially when orders for our Downeast Feast Lobster Bakes are added to the mix. Because we serve everything fresh, including our great fries, it takes more time. Sorry you... More
