We went for a long weekend getaway. From check-in to check-out everyone was very helpful. Our room had a great view of the Ocean and River, Every morning the manager made homemade waffles for breakfast and a great assortment of breakfast foods. This was more that what they advertised. The have loaner bike at no charge so we could ride... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding. Our room was at the "inn" property on the third floor. Spacious room, nice view out the window to the river and ocean. Comfy bed. Bathroom was a bit small but updated. We enjoyed sitting in the chairs watching the water and the boats go by. Very convenient location to... More

This is our 3 rd stay at this property and all have been in the spa building, which is more contemporary than the inn. I might add that there was no recognition given to the fact that we we were repeat customers Previously, we stayed in water view king rooms, which were spacious and had a sofa and chairs for...

My husband and I were celebrating our 35th anniversary for a 3 night stay in Maine. After reading a lot of the favorable reviews we booked at the Breakwater. Our room was a perfect size for us, clean and decorated beautifully to fit a waterside inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. We were served drinks... More

Enjoyed a 2 day stay in a King water view room in the original building.Upscale however the bathrooms need to be renovated. Great location on Ocean Drive in a quiet and peaceful area. Walk to beach and watch boat traffic in and out of marina. The inclusive continental breakfast is bountiful and nicely presented. I would definitely return

To begin, there are 2 buildings on the property which is located on the harbor. We stood in the northern building and it seemed old and not up-to-date. The other building seemed newer and maybe more recently updated. The complementary breakfast was wonderful and the staff was working hard to make us happy especially Bethany. The room was small so...

My husband, daughter and I decided to take a nice relaxing family trip to Kennebunkport. From the amazing pictures on their website we decided to stay at the Breakwater Inn and Spa and splurge for the insanely expensive "waterside cottage" .. for "privacy & luxury" as stated on the site. Well, what a joke! First of all, you are literally... More

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
