Beautiful clean inn right across from the beach. Peaceful porch to relax and listen to the ocean. Clean rooms and common areas. Friendly staff Free breakfast was delicious, pancakes with fresh blueberries and roasted tomato omelet. Would definitely come back and recommend

The Tides Beach Club was just what we were looking for . It's a quaint Inn on the beach just a few minutes from Kennebunk Maine. Far enough away from town to really be relaxing, but close enough to go shopping or sailing whenever you want . It's an updated, clean, 25 room Inn that is across the street from... More

This past weekend was my second stay at TBC and it was truly a pleasure. The decor, the staff, the amenities (this resort is paired with Hidden Pond), the food/drinks and the location are all PERFECT. Staying here was truly a perfect weekend getaway.

While the rooms are small, this place is a first class experience in terms of service, the restaurant, the beach access and location. The house is so nice that it expands your living space. We absolutely plan on coming back and i recommend the lobster raviolo and the swordfish wrap.

Superbly located along the beach. Ample parking for hotel guests. Beach is not crowded at all. Breakfast is included and excellent. Lots of Gluten free options. GF bread and buns available. Lunch I the beach was fast and delicious. Rooms are solid- what you'd expect from an inn.

If you love the beach, great food and great service... This is ur spot. Very relaxed, yet high level of comfort, food, service. Beach is right across the street. Many comfy private nooks on the property to curl up with a good book or a cold cocktail. Highly recommend!!
