“Very Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

The Port Inn came up on our GPS as and Econolodge. We were very pleasantly surprised to find this instead. It was recently renovated and the furnishings are top of the line. It was like walking into an expensive hotel. The rooms were very clean and spacious, the beds comfortable and quiet. We couldn't hear any noise at all. Lots of pillows and thick, soft bath towels. A full continental breakfast is provided in the morning.This is a great place to stay.

My girlfriends and I just stayed at The Port Inn, Kennebunk this past weekend and our experience was fantastic! The rooms, lobby and grounds were all nicely done and spotless. The beds are beautiful and comfortable. The staff were all very pleasant and answered all questions we had and we're also happy to investigate transportation arrangements for us. The continental breakfast didn't stop at bagels and cereal. A satisfying spread of fresh muffins, pastries and hot Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, compete with an array of cold juices and hot coffee waited for us in the lobby dining area. Everything was great and we can't wait to visit again.

Room Tip: The ground level makes it super easy to come and go.

Our family of 4 stayed here for one night labor day weekend (2 adults, 2 teens). We were last minute and paid the price (close to $300) but the 4 of us slept comfortably and the room was very nice and spotless. We did have a room on the first floor facing the road, but we were not bothered by street noise like some other reviewers have mentioned. Free breakfast was plentiful but all packaged food. Can't complain as the 4 of us at as much as we wanted. We will be back!

I stayed at the Port Inn recently and really enjoyed it. It was renovated this summer and the re-designed hotel is more appealing than some big chain hotels I’ve seen in major cities. There’s no old New England shabby chic anywhere; this hotel is clean, contemporary and easy to find. It’s right off one of the main roads for the town but I was never disturbed by the traffic. The staff was friendly and helpful and the price couldn’t be better. If you want something modern rather than the typical Maine hotel with rooms that look like something from an episode of Murder She Wrote or a Laura Ashley catalog from the 1980s, this is the place for you. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay in Kennebunk.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a non-smoking room as they allow smoking in some rooms.

This recently renovated motel is a true find. The rooms are spacious with ample desk and closet space. One of the features I liked best was all the shelves near the basin where there was room to store all of your toiletries, razors, etc. Nice, thick, soft towels await you in the bath. The beds are very comfortable. There is even a place to charge your iPhone on the clock radio. This place is incredibly clean. The staff here obviously takes pride in their work. A continental breakfast is served in the mornings and includes all the standard fare. You will enjoy your stay at the Port Inn. It will exceed your expectations.

Port Inn was a wonderful little inn to spend out first night in Maine. This was a very clean, updated establishment and I would definitely stay here again. The staff was very welcoming and gave us excellent dinner recommendation. We were in room 120, and I would definitely suggest requesting a second floor room due to noise. Other than the noise issue, there was no other negatives about this stay. The breakfast was adequate, but nothing remarkable. Close to town and a great location for taking a morning walk or jog!

Room Tip: Second Floor room recommended to reduce noise level from those above you.

I was surprised to read the Port Inn was one time an Econo Lodge. I have stayed in only one Econo Lodge in Mystic, CT. It was a dump. The Port Inn has been beautifully redone. I stayed in room 106 which is to the back of the property. A beautiful room. The continental breakfast included bagels, donuts, excellent muffins, hot breakfast sandwiches, juices etc. My only criticism with the Port Inn is the chambermaid who was cleaning rooms was enjoying her music a little too much. I took advantage of a 30% off fall deal so the value of my room was excellent.

Room Tip: During heavy traffic in summer, rooms overlooking the road may notice the traffic noise.
