We stayed here for one night to visit Bentleys. The hotel was easy access to route 95 and wasn’t too far from Bentleys. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and we paid a lot less than the other hotels. The only complaint I have is the awful smell in the front lobby. It was overwhelming and unpleasant. If...

For such a inexpensive rate, in the Kennebunks, I was very skeptical about what I would get for a room and I must say, I was most pleasantly surprised! The woman at the reception desk was very friendly and helpful. I do travel often and usually stay at well known hotels and so am savvy about room security. I was... More

We were lucky to get a room on Labor Day Weekend, we were there only one night but our stay was very nice. The room was very clean and the women at the front desk spoke broken English but we managed to communicate just fine, she also gave us a choice of rooms which I liked. I would stay there... More

I was driving to catch a ferry very early in the morning, when I realized I forgot a towel, with no stores open before the ferry left I thought to stop in a hotel and ask if I could buy one. Sally gave it to me, with a smile on her face. That kindness meant alot to me, Thanks Sally.

I stayed here for one night. The room they gave me was nicely done, the bathroom was outdated but who cares, everything worked fine. I can tell they have done a lot of remodeling recently, so I wouldn't rely to much on older reviews! Beds were comfy and the room was really clean. AC worked great!! The room also had... More

We were there one night and that was one too many. The room was so musty smelling, it was horrible. The phone kept ringing with no one there, we had to unplug it. The bathroom window screen was full of holes, so bugs were getting in. Then we lose power in the middle of the night.. no A/C on a... More

I stayed in the first unit which may have been a handicapped accessible unit. it had obviously been updated and was very pleasant. I'm surprised at the other reviews. Yes, the woman was from another country but we had no trouble communicating and she couldn't have been more helpful. It IS right off the interstate which is why I was... More

This place is disgusting, stinks, and nobody could pay me to stay here! I have stayed in some questionable hotels before, but this place tops them all. The shower floor bubbled up, I couldn't even stand straight in there. The sheets had body hair on them, and the electrical outlet didn't even have a cover. My child could have gotten... More
