“VERY IMPRESSIVE - BEST OF EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We stayed here Nov. 7th - the room was immaculate and was newly renovated and was probably the nicest room for the price we have ever stayed in and we travel a lot. You will definitely not be disappointed. The breakfast was delicious and check in and check out was great. I encourage you to stay here if you are in the area!

Room Tip: Any room would be great - we stayed in a King efficiency.

I've spent many a night in a $200+ room that didn't come close to holding a candle to the Port Inn. The place looks new. Clean, tastefully decorated, with LOTS of room, desk, chair and good sized bathroom. Location was also good. This has been put on my "go-to" list when traveling in Maine.

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.
