We booked into the Kentville on the Ocean for two night stay (August 7&8). We reserved a day ahead as we had read how busy it was in Hampton Beach at this time of year. They had one room available with a king size bed on the third floor. Parking was included with our hotel stay. You cannot beat the location and view from this hotel. We liked the fact that it is located in the quieter area and away from all the noise from the arcades and stores. The room is nothing to write home about. You pay for the location. The room was not clean and I slept in my clothes worried about the cleanliness of the mattress, carpet and dated furniture. This is a $50 room (at best) if it was not for the location. We had the corner deck and it was nice to have breakfast overlooking the beach. They did have a fridge with a freezer which was good as we purchased groceries at the neaby Hannafords. The internet service did not work from our room or deck. It worked in the lobby or front porch. They do provide coffee/tea in the morning. The beach is beautiful and we spent a full day enjoying the area. It is a full amusement park with a beach. They had music at the outside stage at night and we enjoyed the firework show on Wednesday night. The locals stated that the beach area is quieter when the younger crowds return to school. It is, however, a great experience to visit this beach and area. I never felt that I was in a crowded area eventhough there was sea of colourful umbrellas on the beach. I walked a good distance on the beach, the sand and water is great!
