“Great service”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

The place feels rather cheap - both the common areas and the rooms. However, this is more than made up in wonderful service the hotel offers. The staff go out of their way to provide guests wit everything they may need. For example, when I inquired about a microwave, one was brought to my room the next morning. Extras such as beach chairs and beach towels are a nice extra for such a simple place. One thing I found annoying was that room was flooded with light in the morning due to lack of decent light-blocking curtains.

We had a very enjoyable stay at this inn - helped by good weather and the fact that we were in the States for a family party. Our king room was lovely, with a pleasant outlook over the pond and woods. We wish we could have stayed longer than the two days we had there.

If you are looking for a quiet, restfull vacation with spectacular views, this is the place to be!
Kathleen and Peter will bend over backwards to please you and the atmosphere is the casual, comfortable, down home Maine hospitality everyone loves, not to mention all the great
seafood and ocean views in the area.
My husband and I have been coming here for over 12 years and there is always more to
discover!
We have introduced many friends to this place and all of them get "hooked" being here.

Room Tip: Ask for room 210 or 212. They have king beds that are very comfy and double sinks with a large coun...

On Sunday, August 4th. 2013, we stayed at the Ocean Woods Resort at 17 Dyke Road in Kennebunkport, Maine. It was just an overnight, as it was arranged as a family gathering -dropped off our bag and joined the family reunion.
Later that evening about 10PM we returned to our room for the evening and engaged the dead bolt lock for the night. We awoke in the morning to see our ceiling covered with water stains. Other findings included the insulated drapes' hem was hanging and signs of mildew along the edge of the drapes. The shower turn off was so difficult a wrench would have helpful. HERE IS THE KICKER. At 6:45AM, we tried to leave the room and we could not unlock the dead bolt. Taking turns with dry and damp cloths we still unable to release the dead
bolt . We were unable to get a reply calling the desk. After a couple of attempts of calling the office and trying to release the dead bolt to know avail. We checked the windows and found that was not an exit option.
We called a family member in the next room and she went down to the office but could not gain access through the hall entrance as that was locked. She took a number off the door, called in our behalf. Kathleen the owner was walking the beach. She said she would call the maintenance man upon her return. Upon her return, she informed me the maintenance man was in route. She told me that no one has complained of a problem. I TOLD HER I BEG TO DIFFER, BECAUSE to the right of the deadbolt area on the wood door trim was a hole chiseled out previously by someone in order to release the dead bolt. The maintenance man in order to gain access to our room had to climb a ladder and come through our window. He immediately tried the dead unsuccessfully and immediately inserted his screwdriver into the chiseled hole making three attempts with extreme pressure before it finally released. Talk about a horrific experience. We never got a call from the desk asking us to stop by the office, in fact in checking out we never received as much as an apology.

We liked this place being just outside the craziness and congestion of the downtown Kennebunkport area. It was quiet and a few minute walk from the beach. It was a much better price point, as long as you don't mind having to walk a few minutes to the beach.

the breakfast that was included is very basic (Yogurt, Cereal, breads, fruit) but is fine.

The owner was pleasant, helpful and the rooms were very clean.

We have been enjoying beautiful Goose Rocks Beach for over 30 years, and our favorite accomadation by far is the Ocean Woods Resort.It's owners, Kathleen, and her husband Peter, always make our stay a most enjoyable experience, and we look forward to our next visit.They go out of their way to accomadate any request their guests may have, and make them feel at home at the Ocean Woods.
The Ocean Woods Resort is a short 10 minute walk to the fabulous, always clean, white sandy Goose Rocks Beach, a 3 mile long stretch of beauty.Thereare a variety of different rooms, and all the ones we have stayed in have been very clean, comfortable, and well-equipped.
On the grounds are a large swimming pool, hot tub, basketball court, and spacious lawn with pond, where one can relax after a day at the Beach.
Every morning, Kathleen sets out a varied, healthy breakfast, which includes fresh juices and coffee/tea, bagels, muffins, yogurt, cereals, and often home-made scones and muffins. A perfect way to start the day !
Kayaks and bicycles are available to rent.
PJ's pub is located on site, with an outdoor terrace on which to enjoy a fresh, home cooked supper. The staff here is helpful and very friendly.
If you are visiting the area, and looking for an ideal place to stay, the Ocean Woods Resort is it!!
