Currently here on vacation with family. We have 4 first floor rooms right next door to each other. Kara and Dave are wonderful hosts, going out of their way to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy. The rooms are clean and neat. Of course, the location is fantastic, just 1 block away from the beach. We highly recommend staying... More

The Mainsail has all the goodies that you and your family search for. Nothing wrong with a heated pool and front door BBQ's. A block to the beach and when you arrive it's one of the first motels to turn right into after a long drive. Hospitality plus from owners Dave and Kara who go to the top of making... More

Our 1st visit to Mainsail was this past wk-end, 5 of us ladies went for lots of fun in the sun. We had the best time. It is in the best spot. Block away from the main attractions/ocean, what could be better than that. Well kept, very clean, love the landscaping. Friendly staff. Looking forward to our next visit.

Just got back from a few days at Hampton Beach and staying at the Mainsail. There was 9 of us (5 adults and 2 children) and we had 2 rooms with 2 queen size beds. This is the ideal place to stay with kids. It is mostly all families and very clean. The staff goes out of their way to... More

I have been staying at the Main Sail for the last 20 years on and off when I am lucky enough to call and get a room on a days notice...the staff is always accommodating, the rooms are spotless and the outside of building and pool is constantly being refreshed...it is just a minutes walk to the beach...in my opinion...

We spent 3 nights, everything was great. We went with another family and wished we had booked at the same time so we were closer together. We were overlooking the pool which was great since we were close to it we could watch the kids in the pool. The only downfall which was on my part, I should have asked... More

We had an excellent trip to Hampton Beach. We were in a little cottage in the back. We had two bedrooms, a separate kitchen and a living room. Everything was very clean and recently renovated. No rug, which was excellent for us. Less allergy and easy going when back from the beach. Only thing missing were hooks in bedroom and... More

From our check-in to our check-out it was an amazing stay! Friendly on site owners. We stayed in a cabin that was immaculately clean. The grounds and pool are well cared for. It is our new family vacation spot for Memorial Day Weekend! Can't wait until next year.

We were fortunate enough to be the first to stay in two of the renovated cottages (8A & 10A). They were right next to each other so perfect for our large family. The cottages were clean and comfortable with plenty of space to set up shop for a couple of days (we stayed 3 nights). The kitchens had plenty of... More
