My husband and I just returned from two nights at the Inn. We loved our room, which overlooked the water and was beautifully decorated. The room was immaculate and offered lots of storage and closet space. There were two chairs in front of the window, which we loved while we had our early morning coffee watching the morning fishermen go... More

The Kennebunkport Inn and Spa is a beautiful small inn. It has a full service spa in the Inn. The rooms are nice, the beds are plush and the location is perfect. It is a perfect place to escape the big city for a few days and is right across the street from the famous Mabels Lobster Claw Restaurant. A... More

Located right on the river just before it flows into the ocean. our first night we were booked in the newer building which has the spa. Surprisingly, the fitness center was small and the equipment was covered in dust as if it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. Our room was large and functional but lacking in charm. A bigger problem...

Wonderful views and the service was great. Rooms very clean and well maintained. Very good location to be far enough away from the bustle but close enough to easily get there. Breakfast was very good. Recommend!

I had a perfect reservation -- or so I thought -- at the Cape Arundel Inn. I arrived to find it was not at all what I was expecting. The Breakwater rescued me and I enjoyed a perfect and delightful stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The ambience was peaceful. I loved my water view room. The lawn... More

Well maintained older hotel with adjacent spa. Rooms are large, well appointed, and comfortable in a casual coastal style. Staff is excellent. Very convenient to walk into town. The restaurant is actually quite good but also many other local choices. Bar is available but closes at 10pm due to town regulations, and one must again go into town to one... More

I stayed at The Breakwater last week with a college friend. It was the first stop of an epic New England road trip and it couldn't have been better or more relaxing. Our room was gorgeous, spacious and comfortable, and after a long day of travel, we appreciated the complimentary water bottles, ample information about the area by way of... More

The hotel was amazing - very peaceful, quite and relaxing. Everything was perfect, from the water views, walking paths, outside seating areas to the amazing Stripers restaurant. I highly recommend room #14! We will definitely come back.
