“Great location in Dock Square”
Reviewed May 30, 2011

Though not the poshest rooms in town, we made our selection based on location. We enjoy walking out of a hotel and being right next to the shops and restaurants. It was definitely worth the trade off. We were upgraded to a mansion room with fireplace on the first floor and it was perfectly adequate for a 3 night stay. The continental breakfast was included and there was entertainment in the lounge in the evening. Kennebunkport made a great base for exploring the area--Ogunquit, Portland, Kittery. We plan to return to the Kennebunkport Inn.

My daughter & I recently spent 3 nights at the Kennebunkport Inn. It was the perfect choice for the Kennebunkport area, which is so quaint & such a great destination for a weekend getaway or a vacation! The entire K-Inn staff was so accommodating & pleasant. We loved the room decor, plus it is very spacious, comfortable, clean & the plumbing, fixtures, etc. are refreshingly new & all in great condition. We spent one night & enjoyed it so much that we returned a few days later & spent 2 additional nights The location is so convenient--just off Dock Square--easy access to absolutely everything, yet quiet & relaxing. We saw various age-range of guests. Not one negative point about our K-Inn stay. We were so happy to discover this great B&B & have already referred it to others! Some of our friends in the northeast are already planning to book a stay!

Room Tip: We booked last minute during low season.

My husband & I had stayed at the Kennebunkport Inn a few years ago, and stayed in a regular room, which was very nice. We fell in love with the area, so for our 10th anniversary, I surprised him with a reservation at the same place, but opted for a deluxe room and ordered the "Romance Pkg" of champagn & choc-covered strawberries. When we registered, we were upgraded to The Captain's room - a beautiful king room with a fireplace and two cozy chairs. After having an early dinner at The Clam Shack (not to be missed!), we returned to relax by the fire and enjoyed our treat! The bed was SO comfortable - pillows, too! The shower was the best, and with a Keurig coffee maker, I was very happy. We'll be back!

My husband and I decided on a quick getaway and wanted something close to home (live just north of Boston), on the water (preferably ocean) and was a good value. After researching many locations, we decided on Kennebunkport due to the location. The Kennebunkport Inn had availability and gave us a great rate (including a deluxe Continental Breakfast).

Upon check-in (we arrived on a Friday night) after 8:00 and were greeted by a wonderfully warm and witty woman. She checked us in and we went up to our room. Based on our reservation, we were supposed to stay in the Riverhouse in a King room but we were placed in the Main Inn in an absolutely gorgeous room with an electric fireplace and incredible decor. It was on the 3rd floor and we felt like we were in the penthouse!

That evening we went down to the bar/pub for a drink and were greeted by a piano player (who we found out was named Flash) and the average age was MUCH older than we are (we're in our 40s) and we had a great time with the entertainment (both musical and guests)!

The next night we had a lovely evening at the pub with an acoustic guitar player who took requests!

The deluxe continental breakfast was good (although the omelets were not what I expected) and the homemade granola and bakery items were very yummy!

Upon checkout, I asked if we had been upgraded and the woman said "yes" and explained that we had put something in our rooming request that prompted them to do that (we stated that we wanted a room up high and away from noise and that we were looking for a romantic getaway from our children!)

All in all, we would definitely go back and take advantage of the wonderful staff, service and ambiance.

We visited Kennebunkport during Mother's Day weekend and the Kennebunkport Inn was the perfect getaway spot. Right in the center of town, all we had to do was park and then walk to wherever we wanted to go. We reserved a room across the pool deck and it was the perfect size for our one-night stay, though the shower had difficulty draining. The Inn is charming and the bar area cozy. The complimentary continental breakfast was vast and had many options - including quiche and their homemade granola. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely come back for another visit.

I booked the wrong Inn twice. The first time I was aware of it, however the second time I wasn't but I was very happy that I did find the Kennebunkport Inn. Everything was great fromt he check-in to the check-out - it was perfect. The staff was "pleasantly old fashion" with outstanding service. I love a place that people welcome you before you have to speak to them first. I have worked in the hospitality service for almost 20 years and this was a great place to relax. Miles at the front desk was very helpful. He was always willing to go the extra mile. If I asked where the ice machine was, he would tell me and offer to go and get it for me as well. Very nice associate. Thank you.

We've been coming to the inn for the last 5 years for this weekend either in February or March. We've had between 10 and 20 friends from Mass, New Hampshire, Maine and Pennsylvania share in this weekend and have always had a great time. The staff is very accommodating and the Inn is comfortable and homey. The food is fantastic and the town is lovely, fun to walk around in and explore. We've never been disappointed even in the weather. Tina, Marianne, Elaine, Fronie, Nancy, Julia, Cheryl, etc, etc, etc
