It really was all about the location. Good things: free parking, walk to everything, free hot and cold buffet breakfast Bad things: No pool, no view of water and very hard king bed. The price was fairly reasonable. The hotel is in the little town of Kennebunk not near the beach. The beach is 1 mile away. I would definitely... More

Great accommodations in the heart of Kennebunkport. For being on the main road the Inn was totally quiet. Large room, very clean with an older inn feel. Good continental type breakfast with homemade waffles & very friendly staff. The front desk staff also friendly & helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

How do you beat walking distance to shops and restaurants in town? Stay at King's Port Inn. Never had to look for a parking space when my family wanted to go downtown.

This hotel is within walking distance of the commercial center of Kbunkport saving you the hassle of finding parking during the busy season. However our room was very worn and dated. A renovation is needed both to rooms and in the rather dark breakfast room.

The package of jam I opened was old and unspreadable, so was the peanut butter. They bake waffles upon request . The rooms were a bit outdated for the price, however the location... More

The King's Port Inn is conveniently located in the center of Kennebunkport near the downtown area. It is a very busy area from April to October.

Great location near downtown Kennebunkport and beach. Awesome jacuzzi tub and shower in room. Breakfast was ok. You can get a waffle if you request it. Yogurt, muffins, hard boiled eggs ,juice , coffee etc. lots of shopping and food nearby. Try the Wine bar down the street for their happy hour 5-6.

Wonderful service, excellent location, walk to downtown Kennebunk. Clean and friendly. Fresh baked cookies at reception as well as knowledgeable, friendly front desk help. Continental breakfast with made to order waffles that were hot and delicious with plenty of available toppings. Would recommend a stay here. The Inn is a little dated but totally enjoyable
