Fabulous location right on the harbor. Rooms were better then expected. Don't judge a book by it's cover, rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fabulous and service was exceptional. Free bike rentals. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the internet. For the price, internet should be fast and available in all rooms. They said... More

Don't judge a book by its cover! The outside isn't much but the interiors are well appointed. Rooms are large and comfortable. Love the deck and outdoor space, it's a great view to wake up to. Simple breakfast spread is available every morning. They're pet friendly! They had a pet bed, bowl and a treat setup for my pup upon... More

I booked a room during Christmas Prelude. I was not expecting such a phenomenal place. This place is great. There were two women I encountered who are running the place. Both were absolutely the best. I am horrible with names but a lady was in the breakfast room every morning making waffles, upon request, and she is retired coast guard.... More

Went to the Christmas Prelude and found this gem. From the outside it does not look like much (particularly in winter when the boats are not in the water behind it, the awnings are not up and it is dark). In fact it looks at first glance in the winter like some 50s strip hotel. Nothing could be further from... More

Friday, 11/21/2014... Lovely room with French doors leading to the deck and water. Linens new. Beautifully decorated. Friendly desk clerk. Port and red wine with cheese and crackers on arrival. What's not to like! Enjoy!

We stayed at Yachtsman Lodge in Kennebunkport, ME the first week in September. Was the first time we took a trip to the east coast and it was a really good vacation. We stayed 7 nights and the service was very good. The room was clean and bed was comfortable and always cleaned the room. This motel is very close... More

We were a bit limited on lodging since we prefer to have our yellow lab along with us whenever possible. That's how we found this absolute gem of a property. Each room is waterfront, and looking out to the marina and the boats is absolutely so peaceful. We even had the Secret Service yachts right outside our door. Rooms are... More

Fantastic location, the Lodge is just far enough away from Kennebunkport to be able to walk in and try the lobsters at the "Clam Shack". The view from the patio doors was stunning in the sunshine. The breakfast was as expected for the continental type, but the social hours of brandy, port and cheese and biscuits was super. Great value... More

This is an on the water, old fashioned Motor Inn style hotel. You park outside your room, it is all on one floor. The rooms are very clean, but fairly small. The best part is the 'open to the breakwater' sliding doors and sitting area outside each room. Nice to sit and have a cocktails and watch the boats go... More

We staid here on our trip through Vermont and Maine and enjoyed it for the most part. The location is nice, just a short distance outside of town and the marine on the back is a very nice backdrop. The issue we had is that we were placed in room 17 that shared a wall with the common area where... More
