Sorry to say the the Breakwater Inn and Spa does not live up to its name. The hotel rooms while spacious had very small bathroom and vanity area. The massage was good my wife said but they offered nothing in the way of real spa services other than a Nice locker room. The steam room in both locker rooms where... More

My sweetheart and I came across The Breakwater by mistake and we are so grateful we did. This quaint Inn in Kennebunkport appeared to be off the beaten track of the busy downtown. The view was second to anything we have ever seen anywhere. We had dinner that night and the food was fabulous. The room we so comfortable we... More

We arrived to be greeted by a very attentive and friendly staff member. Our room was very large for an Inn. It seemed even larger since it was sparsely furnished. We had a water view. The room was very clean. The bathroom was small and only partially updated. But that didn't matter to us. Each morning we were greeted by... More

Comfortable and clean facilities. Modern amenities. Stayed with husband and 3 children (ages 13, 10, 7). There are two buildings, we stayed in the Spa building which seems to be newer. Loved that they had complementary bikes (adult size only), beach chairs and towels and canoes for our use. Made for a great weekend trip. We also took advantage of... More

My wife and I stayed in Kennebunkport a few times and decided to try a different hotel for this visit. We booked online through their own website and not through one of the many travel discount sites. I can best describe the experience at the Breakwater Inn & Spa as a man who had one hand in the oven and... More

The location is outstanding, with a inclibed lawn leading to the main canal into the port, us the place ti sit and see all the water activity of the city. Very good bar and dining hall, very courteous staff and nicely appointed rooms. Try to get a first floor room with a terrace, the view and afternoon sun make it... More

Large window view of river. Towels and toiletries top quality. Staff friendly and extremely helpful.. Overall didn't want to depart from this property. A top flight experience. Looking... More

My family and I stayed here for 1 night with a Jetsetter deal. We loved the location of this Inn and the view from our room was amazing. We loved sitting in our room and just watched the boats go by. Our room was large and perfect for the 4 of us. We would most definitely stay here again. It... More

We have stayed in the Kennebunkport area many times so we were familiar with the Inn. Our usual hotel did not have any rooms we were interested in for the Memorial Day weekend so we decided to give this inn a try. We were not disappointed. From the reservation to check-out the staff made everything smooth sailing. When I called... More

We were traveling to the area over the Memorial Day weekend for a family funeral, and only wanted to stay one night. It was impossible to find anything that did not have a minimum stay requirement. I found this Inn on the Chamber of Commerce website, and they were so accommodating. The Inn itself is lovely, updated nicely with plenty... More
