Spent three nights at the Mainsail this past weekend and loved the motel! Not only were the grounds and pool spotless, but the room was wonderfully cared for and had all the amenities we needed! The owners, Kara and David, were helpful, friendly and so welcoming! They went above and beyond to meet our every request. Would definitely recommend this... More

Very clean, very friendly... pool was a little too warm - not "refreshing" for the sunburn we got sitting on the beach all day. I wish one building could be an adults only side, families on the other side. Waking up to crying babies and little runners up and down the outside decking was a little irritating but, I don't...

Stayed for one night after a show at the Casino Ballroom (which incidentally is not an actual casino- I did not know this LOL!). We literally only slept here but it was very clean and comfortable for our stay. Looks like a lot up updating/upgrading is being done. Nice to have a designated parking spot. I also liked that there... More

Stayed at this clean well taken care of motel to see a show at the casino. The new owners are proud and have put a great bit of sweat and money into this newly updated property. Stay at this you wont regret it I promise!

This review is a bit late. I promised them I'd review them when I got home but forgot. I had a few requirements when booking this hotel. I have 3 young kids ages 3,5,7 so we needed something that is within manageable walking distance to beach and boardwalk. We were in Hampton Beach for a day long visit in 2013... More

So many places haven't been updated in HB without prices going way up. Here they are remodeling and updating several rentals. Prices have remained competitive even with updates to rooms. Best of all was how clean the rooms were. New towel and sheets was soo nice. Did have trouble with shower head and maintenance quickly replaced with a nice adjustable... More

I recently stayed here for one night after the Reach the Beach relay race that ended in the Hampton Beach area. I highly recommend this place! To start, when I was shopping around for places to say, I sent Mainsail an inquiry email and they were one of the first places to get back to me with a price and... More

Park your car and forget about it. Walking distance to beach, boardwalk, and restaurants. The room was dated, as are most of the others in the area, but clean. Owners could not have been more pleasant, great food suggestion and more than helpful. Nice heated pool, value for the money was ok at best. Wifi was weak and iffy. Will... More

We attended the 25th seafood festival this year and stayed at this same motel. We have had a long standing relationship with the previous owners and I must say the new owners are more than friendly. They really did go out of there way to make sure everyone was comfortable and happy in their stay. Some rooms have been updated... More
