We stayed for two nights. Michelle at the front desk during the day was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms do need some updating but were very clean, large and comfortable. The continental breakfast was adequate. Yogurt and fruit would have been a nice addition. Our last morning we met Mrs. Barbara Bush in the lobby. Made our day! This... More

My father,a hotel industry executive, first discovered the Rhumb Line 25 years ago. He recognized the Rhumb Line as a classic,unpretentious Maine gem. Not surprisingly,my family has been coming to the Rhumb Line ever since. This is not unusual at the Rhumb Line;many guests at the Rhumb Line have been longstanding visitors. In fact, "How many years have YOU been... More

First off check in was seamless. We shared a two bedroom suite with our daughter, son in law, and 16 month old grandson. The rooms were clean, neat, and comfortable. The hotel was laid out nicely. The pools and hot tubs were awesome and clean. The continental breakfast was very good and was held in a large room overlooking the... More

We've been going to the Rhumb Line for a few decades now and have consistently found it a nice casual family place with great amenities. Rooms are a good size, comfortable and clean. Food and drinks at the poolside restaurant are very good. Great for families with kids, but now that our kids are grown we still enjoy it and... More

My husband and I happened upon the Rhumb Line, on an impromptu trip to Kennebunkport. The service was great, and the rooms were very clean and comfortable...and the price was right. We were delighted when we arrived, to find the staff so helpful and the beds so comfortable. We will return again.

Family friends and I decided to stay at the Rhumb Line last weekend, because we were attending a charity event being held there. We had a wonderful experience during our stay. The staff did a great job anticipating our needs and making us feel welcomed. Our room faced a large courtyard area, which I loved because it provided easy access... More

This will be a fairly long review, but hang in there, we've got pictures! We stayed the last week in July for 2 nights, 3 days. We booked through a daily deal site, and its a crapshoot we've found, usually you know you'll get the worst room in the place, however this one specifically said the room was 'updated' and... More

First of all I want to warn hardworking people to think twice about spending hard earned dollars to stay here for a vacation.Standing in the lobby looking at the old outdated leather furniture,dirty old rugs, messy disorganized front desk,and curt disheveled,unprofessional looking receptionist,I knew this wasn't going to be good.Well it was worse than that.Upon entering the room my daughter...

SMBull, Owner at Rhumb Line Resort, responded to this review

We are sorry your weekend was not to your liking. All I can say is that the room you reserved has been in use every day this summer before you came and occupied every day since you checked out. We have not had one complaint. We have almost 60 rooms and the consensus has been enjoyment, comfort, and fun. Having... More

This was a one night stop for us passing through and was fine. Chose it because of the pool and used it evening and morning. Food by the outdoor pool was good. Breakfast could have been a bit more enticing - no hot food. One night was fine, not sure about a week.
