We were on a beautiful vacation of Maine midcoast and we wanted to extend our stay there for a few more nights so we called days ahead to the Breakwater Inn and asked if we could kindly cancel our 2 night stay. We were not prepared to hear that they would refuse our request and we would be charged the... More

My daughter and I spent 2 wonderful nights here. We do not get to travel often, so I was happy this hotel was as nice as we had hoped. Upon check in, we were offered a little tour of the facilities and the offerings by the lovely woman at the front desk. Staff at breakfast and at the front desk... More

Booked in to stay here during a tour of New England and the only down side was that we did not stay longer. I booked a king water view with porch and was so glad that I had upgraded as the porch was well worth it. The location is great, the view is stunning and the staff were great. I... More

My husband and I had decided to randomly take a jaunt up the Maine coastline, and I found this on a last minute hotel booking site. It had an immensely bed and breakfast feel. Our room was gorgeously decorated, and incredibly small. The windows let in the smell of ocean air, though we didn't have an ocean view. The small... More

No elevator's here, but a great view of the Breakwater, and Lobster Boats, coming and going delivering their catch. You can be pampered at the spa, or just relax. They have a continental breakfast available with make your own waffles, in the Bar, Restaurant area. There are shops in the spa building and Mabel's restaurant across the street. The staff... More

We stayed at the Breakwater for 2 nights in early May on a driving tour of New England. We loved the hotel! It's actually 2 buildings. We were staying in the Spa building because it had an elevator and one of our group needed the accessibility. The room we had was a King bed and pull out twin bed. The... More

We spent a February weekend here and found it to be most relaxing! The room itself, except for the bathroom, is tired and in need of some updating. The carpets need to be replaced, the occasional stain on the chairs, the lampshades are chipped, the bed a bit soft, you would expect more for the price paid and location.......but, the... More

Spacious well kept rooms with comfy beds and furniture, but it is clearly intended that you not spend the day there as there are few additional amenities...like a desk. In walking weather you can reach nice parts of downtown with a short walk. Located very close to the water, it has good views nearby. As it is at the end... More

My husband and I visited Kennebunkport for Martin Luther King long weekend. The hotel was perfect. The room was very comfortable, bottle of water were provided. Breakfast was complimentary and there was a large variety of options from breads and bagels with preserves, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, pastries and muffins and a waffle station. Tea and coffee are avaliable all day... More
