I found a great place on the quieter, less-touristy side of the beautiful Kennebunkport region. My room was very clean and comfortable-I slept soundly-the bed was more comfortable than my own! Goose Rocks Beach is only a half-mile away-stunning vistas...walkable or they rent bikes. The surrounding countryside is superb for biking or a car ride. Most of the week, there is a pub open upstairs...the food is well-prepared and you can tell the entire staff is happy to be here. Also, they have nice pool area w/ a hot tub as well!

Room Tip: Rooms on east side have nicer view

I had great stay at Ocean Woods, near my favorite beach, Goose Rocks Beach. My room was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast included in the room rate was sufficient. The beach was a ten minute walk away. After a great day at the beach, I enjoyed a cocktail and lobster at the pub's outside deck. The service was great and the prices reasonable. Ocean Woods is a great value in an increasingly expensive Kennebunkport area. I enjoy supporting a family owed place. My wife enjoyed the local shopping and the nice decor at Ocean Woods.

Room Tip: I love the wooded side with a view of the pond and pretty gardens.

The room was very musty smelling and very damp. Ideal location though and cheap. The curtains kept absolutely none of the 5:40 am light into the room. Up bright and early every morning. Kathleen did change the curtain when I complained, but it did nothing. Two shear panels don't keep out light. Awful look to the room - red lampshades and red shears. Needs a makeover desperately. A few dollars would go a long way. Would not be going back but the owner was very nice!

I was looking for an affordable lodging close to Goose Rocks Beach. The only hotel by the beach, the Tides, was way too expensive. This is an excellent compromise, less than 10 min WALK to the gorgeous goose rocks beach ( you do not need then the 12$ praking sticker) and 10 min drive to Kennenbunkport.
Very homey feel. The rooms may seem outdated, but they are large and clean. We chose a king size bed and it was fantastic, very comfy! We slept like babies.
There is also a mid-size pool and jacuzzi outdoors. I was the only person using the pool, it was nice to be able to swim as the ocean was too cold to go deeper than knees.
A small breakfast buffet is included in the price ( toast, coffee, yaourt, jam, cheese, juice...)

Room Tip: On the forest side, rather than parking side. Choose a room with King size bed: it is super comfy.

Although the room interiors are somewhat outdated (Formica counters, linoleum floors in bathrooms, etc.), this resort is close to a great sandy beach, has a nice, if not plain, lounge area, and the owners went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and easy. This resort is about 12 minutes from downtown kennebunkport, where lodging is much higher and not necessarily any better. Give this place a try.

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Ocean Woods. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The grounds are beautiful. The location is an easy walk to beautiful Goose Rocks Beach. Kathy was very helpful and we look forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: Take a room facing the front grounds.

Last minute decision to spend a few days in gbr and the ocean woods had a room that suited us perfectly. A short drive to the beach it is ideally located and has all the amenities needed. Good for families because they are so in tune to parents needs. Thank you owr staff!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are best.
