We had a great stay at Mainsail. The rooms are immaculate, service was excellent. Kara, Dave, and (of course) Clarence do an amazing job running the Mainsail. They are very friendly and would do anything to suit your needs! We loved our stay and we are definitely going back next summer! The Mainsail is very quiet and family oriented. They... More

We stayed in Hampton NH for the celebration of my daughter's wedding. The staff at the Mainsail was very accommodating to us. From the ease of booking our room to the kind friendly check in we felt welcome and at home. The rooms are very clean and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Would highly recommend a stay... More

Won't repeat every other reviewer, but for Hampton you just can't beat the Mainsail. Owners are super pleasant and helpful. Clean, quiet room that was big enough for five. Being one block over from all the action, but not in all the craziness is perfect for families.

Awesome place to stay in Hampton Beach. It will be even nicer after the upcoming updates (better Wi-Fi and tv's). My family and I only stayed for 3 nights but are already planning a week long trip here next summer! We stayed in a standard motel room but are hoping to stay in a cottage next year. The owner even... More

This was our second year going there, only spending 2 nights, but what a great place. It's not right on the water but it's a very short walk to the beach. The rooms are spotless as is the parking lot. The pool area is very well maintained. The staff will go out of their way to right any wrongs quickly.... More

Thank for taking the time to write a review. We are fortunate to have quite a few great dining establishements and and amazing beach wiihin a very short walking distance. Having a clean facility and a happy, helpful staff are priorities for us, so we are glad that shows. As for the TV and internet, they are on our update... More

The room was spacious and well kept. Very clean. The room was close to the beach and all the action and the staff was very helpful. As others stated, the wi-fi was weak and the tvs could stand to be upgraded. We had someone above us who seemed to be stomping and dragging furniture (why? idk...) for an hour until... More

We hope you get to enjoy the heated pool on your next visit! New TV's in the motel and upgraded wifi are on the agenda for the upcoming winter season, so by next summer all rooms and cottages will be equipped with new flat screens and we will have expanded internet access. More

A nice hotel with an extraordinary helpful and cordial staff. Some rooms are being renovated and the swimming pool is perfect for kids. It is very conveniently located. Wifi is slow and TVs need some upgrades but who wants to watch Tv when you are on a beach vacation?

Our wonderful staff is truly the backbone of the Mainsail, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. More renovations, new TV's and upgraded Comcast service are all in the plans for the 2016 summer season! More

The Mainsail was clean, reasonably priced, great staff, and only one short block to the beach. What more can you ask for? Wi-Fi was a little weak but I was not there to spend my time on the computer. We only spent a few hours one day at the pool but everything was clean and functional with a lot of... More
