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 For the hotel itself -- very outdated.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

I would like to thank Kentville on the ocean staff for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The Room was ready earlier than check in time, they helped us to carry our luggage up to our room. The Room was clean and smelled fresh. The Lobby in Kentville is very big and convenient for many purposes(like toast in the morning!).... More

We stayed on the second floor side room in summer. The room had 9 ft ceilings, a fridge and microwave. The bed was clean and very comfortable. The service was polite and we checked in in about 3 mins. The bathroom really needed updating g but was clean with no mold. The price is compatible with other places on the... More

We've been coming here with our family for about 4 years now. The staff is very nice and quite helpful. The complimentary coffee is nice, and it feels like being at home (with the beach so close that you can touch it.) Highly recommended. Any time that there are issues, the staff takes care of it. The front porch provides... More

Last week I went with my friend to see the fireworks at Hampton Beach and we ended up staying in here. We went to the Ashworth first but it was crazy expensive! Like over 3 hundred per night! So we came here as like a last resort, but it ended up being so much fun! We got room 23 (... More
