Stayed at the Kentville 4 times and have had a wonderful experience each time. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Well kept , with flowers everywhere!!! The front porch is relaxing, with rocking chairs, and a beautiful ocean view, directly across from the beach. Coffee is provided each morning, and the staff is more than accomodating, they really make... More

We fled from another hotel down the road (that would have gotten one star or less) so we were relieved that there was a vacancy at Kentville. The room was small and the furnishings dated, but you can't beat the view and the location. Our stay was during the famous Hampton Beach Seafood Festival in September and most of the... More

We booked this hotel sight unseen...and we are so glad. The location is perfect to enjoy the Boardwalk and Hampton Beach, yet it is far enough away to be private. The hotel is quaint, charming and very clean. There is an excellent staff, and they were more than ready to accomodate our needs. Some of the rooms are small and... More

That was the worst vacation for everyone in my family. We stayed for 2 nights and when we left, my back ached so so SO much. We found hairs, dead bugs, and even a used make-up brush... ON THE BED!!! We contacted the front desk about this and they said they would take care of it. They said they would... More

Our family stayed at The Kentville during fourth of July week and it was great. The room was clean, the hotel staff was extremely friendly, and the owner's daughter takes personal pride in this place. The location is right across from the beach which is very convenient. It's enough of a distance from the crowds but within easy walking distance... More

This is a standard beachfront hotel in a kind of tacky beach town in Maine -- but it's charming and homey, thanks to the very nice staff and great service. Rooms are small and just so so -- they've had a lot of use but are clean and tidy. Bathroom fixtures from the 60 in aqua blue! But everything works.... More

I stayed in the Kentville last summer because I have family in nearby Portsmouth, and wanted to stay on the beach. I will admit that when I was first planning my trip, I was a bit put off by the reviews online. But when I went to the website, and I called to talk to them, they were so friendly... More

This was the worst travel experience I have ever had! The room was tiny, filthy and smelled terrible. Nothing worked. the TV,AC and toilet were old and not in woking condition, when we complained to the front desk clerks we were told that it was the handyman's day off and there was nothing that could be done for us. We... More

My best friend and I just returned from a spur of the moment trip to Hampton to attend a concert and have a couple of "girls days at the beach". I own property at the Cape, and she owns property at Ogunquit, so when we travel we are practical yet still fussy. We stayed at Hampton many years as teens... More

Again a wonderful stay at the Kentville. The rooms are extremely small and the beds definitely need new mattresses!!!!!! But the location more than makes up for the rooms lol; it is true that were it not for the location right accross the ocean, the Kentville would not be so popular and would probably receive very bad comments from some...
