My husband and I were visiting from Tennessee and found this place through Tripadvisor. We could not have been more pleased; clean rooms, amazing view, manicured grounds, delicious breakfast, friendly staff and casual atmosphere. Just what we were looking for.

My husband and I stayed at Bass Rocks after flying all day from Seattle to Boston. We stayed one night before traveling to Kennebunkport for a family wedding. The rooms are clean and all face and the Atlantic Ocean. Comfortable beds and I slept like a rock. They have a nice pool and sitting area with a gas fire pit.... More

Got room with two doubles and a sofa pull-out for husband, self, teen and tween. Was a bit crowded, but we made it work. Kids loved having pool with view, while husband and I enjoyed the shared balcony seating. Would have been perfect if others sharing the balcony had been mindful of noise levels after dark, but everyone was generally... More

We just left after a one night stay. We've stayed in 4 other places up the coast this past week and this was the one place I had extremely high expectations for. We arrived in the evening and immediately went to the pool. It was refreshing, the grounds are beautiful. The staff very friendly. The pool area was not crowded... More

The location and view are wonderful. But this is definitely a 3 star hotel that is very overpriced. The room was small and clean, but needs updating. The room also has a damp smell. The bathroom was the smallest hotel bath I've ever seen. There is a sink, but no counter and no fan. The entire bath is 3ft x... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights. Not only was the location absolutely beautiful but the staff who worked here were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially in helping us find the best local places to dine. It was my birthday and we came in to celebrate and go whale watching. If I had to do it over again... More

Pros: everything is in excellent condition and working order; room and grounds were exceptionally clean and tidy, including the pool and outdoor jacuzzi (large). The breakfast buffet is ample, with a wide range of offerings-fresh baked goods, quiche, fresh fruit, bagels, cereal, yogurt. Big plus for us-Starbucks coffee in the room and in the main building all day long. Sound-proofing... More
