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

Service... amazing..girl at front desk was very nice and efficient, took no more than 5 mins to check in. Check out 30... More

stayed at kentville many times in the past years. yes things are old and needs replacement, repaired and a fresh coat of paint. the husband and wife owners needs to invest back into their properties (2 others). it's an investment for the future should they decide to sell or retain customers. if it wasn't for the porch we would be...

The kentville is a excellent place to go if you want a quite restfull place imagine sitting on the frt porch in a old fashion rocker watching people walk to the beach frt. the rooms are clean, frt desk staff very helpful, and low price . Great place for the sea food fest close but away from noise

We just stayed at the Kentville last Wednesday and Thursday night and will not ever go there again. When we checked in the girl on the desk acted like we were bothering her. I am on crutches and our room was on the third floor. There is no elevator. They did not offer a first floor room. Every interaction we... More

Great location - okay rooms. Need to be updated for sure - but the staff was nice and it was right across the street from the beach. It is at the "quieter" end of the boardwalk, which was nice for our family. A little pricey for the outdated rooms.

I have stayed here before and given a great review. This last stay was awful. My husband and I stayed for one night in early August. The room was very dirty. I don't think the sheets had been changed and I felt like I had to wear my shoes in the room as the carpet was gross. There were stains... More

A room that is 300 per night should be a WHOLE lot better that what we got. Holes in the slider curtain that let in light. No screen in said slider so bugs just flew on in as they pleased. The dresser was missing a drawer. Bathroom was the size of a postage stamp and the shower head fell off... More
