We rented to of the 2 floor town house style rooms. We had 14 people including small children. We absolutley did not regret our choice to stay here. There was so much to do for all ages. The playgound was great for the littles (under 6 probobly) as it was small. There was fire pits, and corn hole. Ping Pong tables and yeard Jenga. The teens loved that as did the adults. There is 2 pools one indoors and 1 out, however outside one was empty for repairs. We were granted access to the pool outside at the resort next door and went to use it a couple times but it was way too crowded with poeple from both resorts. The inside pool was nice but we did see a lot of people turn and leave due to our group being so large in it. I think once the outside pool opens this will be better. The staff was super nice and accomodating. We used the grills by the play area. They are clean and nice. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again !

We’ve been visiting this area every year for 25 years or more and never stayed here until now. In our opinion it is a hidden gem! It’s refreshingly clean, has everything you need away from home and is in a very good location for a home base. People are very friendly and it’s tucked back off the road so it’s very quiet as well. Beds are comfortable and NO chance of bed bugs with layers of protection as well as encased in a zippered bed bug proof case! Very comfortable atmosphere…home a way from home.

We had reservations at a different place, but had to leave, it was a slum hotel...The Elmwood came to the rescue in a pinch....Thank you for all that you did for me. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and quiet. We have stayed there many years in the past it felt like going home.

We booked a King suite. The apartment was clean, spacious and well-equipped. The king bed was very comfortable, with plenty of pillows, blankets. The bathroom was a bit small but fine with a typical tub/shower. It was cool (October) so we didn't need to use the A/C but appreciated the quick warm-up of the electric baseboard heat. With front and back windows open we got a nice breeze. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and utensils, and we could have done some serious cooking it we chose. Full-size fridge, Mr Coffee, microwave, K-cup. Some minor downsides: The first floor units are pretty dark due to the balcony and shrubs. The living room area doesn't have enough lighting for comfortable reading Have to essentially do your own housekeeping. Maybe a pandemic thing but annoying. Location issues: The location is right on a very busy highway, which is hard to cross on foot to get to the Dunkin or anything else on the other side. Annoying drive battling traffic to get anywhere (though it's a short walk to the IGA).

Our impromptu trip to the ocean was really incredible. The Elmwood was clean, great for our family, and knocked it out of the park with live music. Our son loved both pools, the bed felt like we were sleeping on clouds, and having the trolley stop out front was super convenient.

Hotel resort was overall very nice. Apartment was clean and well stocked. Location was good and outside of busy downtown Kennebunkport. Only gave 3 stars since these units are typically built very cheaply and not very well insulated. Had people in upstairs unit walking nonstop till 1am then resume again at sunrise at 4:55am!! Totally rude! I would suggest that hotels/resorts place family’s on ground floor! Also all units seem to have big wall AC units in bedroom, way too noisy to sleep with this even on low speed. This unit is meant to cool the whole apartment and should be located elsewhere. For the price charged you should not be required to strip the beds and place all linens, towels and garbage outside the door! This is why you have housekeeping!

This motel worked well for us and our family. It is a motel — so don’t expect a full service hotel. However, the staff was helpful and they had lots of good COVID policies in place. The rooms themselves are dated — like the furniture, a d they bed itself was moderately comfortable, but overall the place was clean and my kids loved both pools — indoor and out. We went with another family, so it was nice to have the small play area with a swing set. I did not love that we were right next the the area where people could smoke, but honestly, it was not a big deal. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and more affordable than lots of other options!!

Excellent place to stay. In the center of everything there is to see and do along this area of the beautiful Maine Coast. Lighthouses, beaches, shops and wonderful places to just relax and enjoy.Would go again any time of the year.
