My husband used to go to hampton beach every summer when he was younger. I had never been before, so we thought we would take the last week of July and come to stay. We decided on the Kentville because of their location as we both didn't want to be very far from the board walk area of the beach.... More

My husband and I along with 2 other couples stayed at the beautiful and wonderful Kentville on the ocean for 3 nights. The innkeepers are accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are good size, comfortable and clean with cable TV. Leave your car parked at the hotel the entire stay because everything is in walking distance from the... More

We stayed in Kentville on the ocean for four nights. It is close to all the amenities. When we checked in, we were given all sorts of tips and area map. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. Parking was for free and always available. I wanted to stay across from ocean, not spend a fortune and... More

Recently stayed at the Kentville and the best thing I can say about it that the parking was great and the location was as well. We had a room on the 2nd floor, the stairs were very steep and the door to the room was a slider. I did not feel safe in this room. The room was either too... More

We came to the Kentville to watch the Miss Hampton beach pageant. The weather on the beach was not great for the competition and the crowd was a little small but we had a great time anyway. All the girls did a great job! We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor facing Dave's garage the view was very... More

The Kentville has a great location convenient to the beach and on-site parking which made it nice to keep the beach gear in the car and have easy access. For the hotel itself -- very outdated. Do not expect more than the basics - our one disappointment was that access to the rooms are from the balcony walkway so you... More
