Spa propeety is dated and uninviting. Rooms are drab with no real view. Lobby is dark with no sitting area. Parking lot separates the sea from the hotel. Way too expensive for a luxury hotel which is trait The bright spot is the Inn which is next door. Lovely place for breakfast on the shore. Very inviting.

Dear HardeeTraveler, Thank you for staying with us and for your compliments regarding the quality of our breakfast. Our parking lot at this location is behind the building but views of the water are still visible. We do invite all of our guests to venture out to visit the beach behind the Spa building as well as the other spectacular... More

My girlfriend and I have been to The Breakwater Inn for two years now in June and plan on making it an annual trip. The Inn is great with very classic New England decor, great service, great Spa services and a great view to enjoy drinks in the evening while sitting in Adirondack chairs. We love going to Kennebunkport to... More

Stayed here during the Fourth of July holiday & was pleasantly surprised. Our room was modern & very clean. Bathroom was a little dated but very clean. Great location to downtown KTP. Great lobster bake & reasonably priced. Complimentary breakfast was a plus! However, only complaint no elevator. Overall would stay here again!

Dear ite2016, The views from the Historic Inn building are amazing and the Lobster Bake occurs right on the lawn with this as the backdrop. Thank you for having a great visit and we hope to see you again soon. Oh, look for a room in the Spa Building when you return for elevator access. Naz Jenulevich Director of Operations More

Stayed here for an anniversary trip and could not have been more pleased. The setting is incredible. It is located right at the end of the Kennebunk River as it opens out to the Ocean. The views from many rooms, the grounds and the restaurant are nearly unmatched. We stayed in one of the Waterview Patio rooms, Room 11. The... More

Tip - no elevators in the inn. Continental breakfast included. We got a residential view (which I regretted as the waterfront view was beautiful). Check in - 5/5 - the man checking us in was fantastic. Helpful, informative, professional and friendly - a breath of fresh air after all the other hotels we stayed in. Thanks for helping us upstairs... More

The room was spacious and comfortable. The view was spectacular and we had a balcony we could sit outside and enjoy the boats sailing off. The lawn was also a wonderfully peaceful place to sit and relax. However, the restaurant was not at all good. Breakfast was adequate but the quiche was served cold and the fruit was a bit... More

Our room was comfortable, had a wonderful deck looking over the river/ocean. The staff was kind and helpful. We love eating at Stripers - food is delicious! They have a canoe that can be used while you are staying there and we loved paddling on the river!

Our room was three flights up of stairs and not quite worth the view. Yes, my fault, when I saw that there was no elevator, and how steep the stairs were, I should never have accepted the room.
