“Cute Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We got a great deal on this place, because we went in the off season for a three day weekend. Apparently,it can get to about 500/a night during the high season.( this information was from a store owner in the area), we paid about 95. The staff was exceptionally friendly, besides the bartenders. The bartenders were a bit curt and the bar was not fully stocked by any means. The cocktails were watered down but still tasty.

We stayed in room 103..there was an issue with the bathroom's cleanliness when we first checked in (the toliet was not flushed and it was very dirty). My boyfriend spoke to the front desk and they were extremely apologetic and offered us a free drink. The breakfast was "continental deluxe" , it was very good and the morning staff was very kind.

Overall a nice place to stay.

Thank you Neha3187 for your review. You certainly picked the right time to travel. The rates are less expensive in the off season. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the rate we were able to offer. We pride ourselves in our friendly and courteous staff. I am very disappointed that this was not what you experienced in the bar. Please accept our apologies for this and know that it will be addressed. As for your room, the uncleanliness in the bathroom is certainly unacceptable. This will be addressed as well. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. We will take the appropriate measures to see that they do not happen again in the future! We hope we can welcome you back in the near future!

We wanted to change up our New Year’s Eve.
We found the Kennebunkport Inn, and they had put together an evening with a very fine diner and wine experience that lead to their own piano bar for the evening. It was just what we wanted. (The diner was really fantastic!)

The Inn, is an older-historic Inn, plenty of history. The building design itself was from an older era – but kept up very well. The staff was second to none. They were constantly trying to make our experience better. The entire complex was decorated for the entire holiday season – and with our recent snow – looked beautiful. The inside of the Inn – was ready for New Year’s Eve – right down to the staff wearing party hats – as we checked in.

I am very familiar with New England and we had been by this Inn many times – now I know what is behind the big front door. Our New Years Eve was just what we wanted – something special, yet not crazy.
Thank You – Kennebunkport Inn – for a magical 24 hours -

Well we've stayed in Maine quite often, but we have never stayed in Kennebunkport. The Kennebunkport Inn itself is right in a beautiful little town and it is within walking distance of all the great little shops. When we checked in the front desk person was very informative and even upgraded us to a nicer room with no upgrade fee. They even have breakfast that is included with your room rate how great is that. They also have a restaurant, but we didn't have a chance to check it out I do hope that we will next time. So if your ever in Maine give the Kennebunkport Inn a try it's worth a visit.

Room Tip: I would try to stay in the main part of the Inn.

Thank you DBG1010 for your review. Kennebunkport is a lovely little town and we are so happy that you decided to vacation with us! The Inn is located right in the center of town, walking distance to all that Kennebunkport has to offer. We are delighted that you enjoyed your complimentary upgrade. Next time you are here, you will have to have dinner at our on sight restaurant, One Dock. The food is delicious and creative. We also have entertainment in the pub on weekends! We hope we can welcome you back soon.

The inn was so comfortable and the service was great with very nice and happy people. We had dinner there and was treated with the delightfully talented pianist Dennis ( failed to get his last name) who is referred to as their savant. He doesn't read music but blew us away with his talent.

Stayed 2 nights as part of a New England tour and on arrival you think this is going to be great. Hotel well decorated and inviting.
Welcome was good with cookies, cake and coffee provided, pleasantly surprised to find that breakfast was included in the room rate.
We were told that evening meals here were exceptional and highly rated but they were not anything special in our mind and selection not brilliant. Had lobster one night as it came highly recommended but thought it was over rated and expensive at over $35 each.
Our room was excellent except it overlooked the outside seating area and you could hear all the conversations from below and the noise from those folks who stayed out there until late (after 11.00pm), would advise ask for a room not overlooking this veranda especially if staying in summer months.

Thank you Robert W for your review. We are very sorry to learn that you were not happy with your dinner at One Dock nor the location of your guest room. Our chef strives to create meals that are creative, delicious and affordable. Our lobster dishes are competitively priced for the area. We are disappointed to hear that you weren't fond of the menu selection. Guest feedback is very important to us. We will certainly take this into consideration when we are preparing our winter menu. We would also like to apologize for the noise on the sundeck. We do our best to combat outside noise later in the evening. Sometimes, with our intown location, noise can be challenging. We are aware that this can be an issue and are taking all appropriate steps so other guests aren't bothered in the future. We do have a variety of rooms to offer. If you ever return to Kennebunkport, we would be happy to reserve you a quieter room in the main house.
