5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent 8 days at the Kentville. The hotel is quaint and very comfortable. The staff is exceptional--including front desk and housekeeping. The location is excellent. We had a 3rd floor room with full ocean view, and a private deck for lounging. This is our fifth stay at this hotel, and we love it. The management and staff do everything... More

We got to the Kentville yesterday and there was a goof up on our room (it happens). We reserved a room with 2 full size beds and they put us in a room with one king. So they gave us a room on there basement level that had two full size beds. The floors had black mold all over them... More

Two night stay. First morning had no shower. But the maintenance man fixed it for us so the next morning was much better. Amazing view from our room on the top floor if you don't have a heart attack climbing the stairs. Very nice staff. Quiet place to stay. Will re-book when we visit Hampton Beach again. And you can't... More

It has the best location on the beach. Service is great, but the hotel needs a lot of work, lots. Nice fridge and a microwave in our room, but absolutely no table to even make a sandwich on or to put down our drinks. Carpets are very old, and it smells humidity a lot, so you can never stop the...

Noisy, filthy room, screen door broken, water in shower barely works, carpet filthy! They must have sprayed the room with a freshener or else it was a new air filter in the air conditioner. In any event, the smell was so strong we had to keep the door open and with the broken screen, the bugs came in. Drapes were... More

As with all real estate, it's location, location, location!! Kentville is a no frills place. On the strip, but enough north to not have the noise. Comfortable, but small. Definitely go with a room on the south side. The view from the 2nd floor is just as good as the 3rd....without the stairs! Rooms were quiet and had fridge and... More

We've been staying at the Kentville for 7 years and each year the rooms get worse, the pricing is higher and the parking is ridiculous. The hotel has beautiful "curb appeal" with vibrant flowers, a quaint front porch and nicely painted decks but beyond that - the rooms are old, the bathrooms are rusty and sliding glass doors & screens...

I reserved 2 rooms on June 26,2014. Spoke with the front desk specifically asked about any issues with reserving the room for 1 night and was told no problem. Gave them my credit card info and received 2 email confirmations. Took time off of work and arranged my family weekend. 2 weeks later I get a phone call from the... More
