Very clean hotel offering a gorgeous view of Kennebunk Beach. Staff was very accommodating and helpful during Covid-19. The homemade muffins every morning were something we looked forward to. Different flavor each of the three mornings we were there.

We had the oceanfront room and spend many hours sitting on the balcony. Beautiful peaceful location even though the hotel is in a busy town. Lovely grounds. Older but well maintained hotel with a lot of history! The beach is immaculate and 50 yards from the hotel . The room was large with very comfortable beds and pillows. The bathroom a little small but very clean. Loved the hot tub overlooking the ocean!! The owners did a good job working with all the new regulations. Thoughtfull bags of linnen and some breakfast items ready to be picked up in the morning. Easy communication by phone and email . Hope to be back!

A perfect Valentine’s weekend! Super friendly staff starting the second we arrived. I called months previous to travel dates to reserve, (as this was a surprise gift trip to my husband whom has never been to the ocean in New England) and asked for oceanfront room and got a perfectly located room (2nd floor) and there was even a large box of Valentine chocolates on the table when we entered our room! We got to use the out door hot tub which was wonderful. This is the cleanest Inn I’ve ever stayed in. It’s obvious the owners work very hard at maintaining this (many generations) owned gem. Even though it was winter and “off season”, there was plenty to explore and do. Winter beach walking, and meeting all the friendly dogs (and people!) on the beach was a highlight of our trip. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful, with plenty of choices and good coffee. Very relaxing atmosphere. We even got to meet the chocolate lab canine greeter! We loved looking at all the pictures of the property and people from the past on the walls. I read many reviews and a lot of people have stayed there multiple times- and I see why. We will definitely be back.

A great place for a quiet get-away. Summers are busy and off season is special too. You can't beat the breakfast that is included. This place is warm and inviting. It's authentic, not commercialized and "tacky." We've stayed many times and will return. They have thought of everything!!

We found Seaside Inn accidently; walked in, got a great rate; meant to stay only one night but stayed two. Oceanview room, laundry facilities close by, nice continental breakfast with delicious muffins. Hot tub available. Short walk to the beach. Can't say enough good things and would highly recommend!
