The parking is terrible, one space per room and very tight spots. No elevators and the room was on the 3rd floor. No mini fridge in the rooms. The location was very convenient, but would not stay here again.

HI M_Heather29 Thank you for the review! If you require an elevator, the hotel building has one, and rooms with a refrigerator are located at the Yachtsman and that is all one level so each room is very easy to access.

We had a delicious experience at the Boathouse! They have a unique menu that’s sort of has a bit of an Asian fusion flare in some of the dishes, And it’s amazing. It just works. The lobster fried rice was completely delicious, the scallops and shrimp were amazing, the oysters were as fresh as could be, The fish sandwich with light and crispy, The drinks were great and the blueberry crisp for dessert was awesome. We got to sit outside and had a great view which was just icing on the cake. Not sure if they take reservations, I’m pretty sure they don’t, so get there and put your name in and then you can walk around Dock Square until they text you. We only had to wait about 20 to 25 minutes at around 6 o’clock on a Saturday night ( which isn’t bad) and we just went for a walk and popped into some of the shops while we waited. Highly recommend!

Best location, walk to everything, enjoy a great view and excellent food. If you visit Kennebunk and want to be right in the middle of the action and enjoy good food and a great atmosphere, then this is the place for you.

Very charming hotel. Our room was at the wharf house, which is a separate building from the main hotel (but a 5 second walk to the main building). The staff were very helpful and the location of the hotel was so convenient to the town...just steps away from the shops and restaurants and an easy walk down Ocean Avenue to explore the rest of the area and water front.

The hotel is in a perfect location but when booking, please be aware that not all rooms have a water view. Hotel is pricey and room amenities are not consistent with the price. The on-site restaurant was excellent.
