“Great location, great value”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We made the Coachman Inn our home base for 5 days in mid July 2013 for a family vacation, taking in the beaches of Maine and some outlet shopping.

The location can't be beat. We were able to hit Kennebunkport and Old Orchard Beach in 30 mins to the north, and Hampton Beach in NH 30 mins to the south. We also spent some time in nearby York, Wells & Ogunquit for beaches and dining.

Yes, the hotel is on the side of old US1, but it is not noisy at all. The nice outdoor swimming pool was directly across from our room, and was a nice inviting dip at the end of each day.

The rooms are basic, the beds so-so, good TV package. We had a "family suite" with a bedroom with 2 beds & bathroom for the kids, and a second room & bathroom for us.

We found the staff helpful & pleasant, and the included breakfast was nice to have in the morning for the basics to get you going.

Great value, great location in the Kittery, Maine area, especially during the high season when some hotels charge insane amounts. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Coachman Inn again.....

Room Tip: Forgot what an old school "motel" was like. So nice to park right in front of your room...

We are so pleased you chose the Coachman Inn to call home on your recent visit to Maine.

We take pride in our central yet 'quieter' location to the Kittery Outlets and many nearby beaches. We appreciate your reference to the room front parking. This is a great feature of the Coachman Inn. After a long day of driving or shopping, it is nice to walk right in to your room.

Thank you for your nice review of our property. We look forward to seeing you again!

My wife and I stayed at the Coachman Inn in Kittery while on our way to a fishing spot upstate in the Belgrades. We really like the place and will definitely stay there again on our next Maine trip. The Inn was very welcoming and they held our reservation when we needed to arrive late on a sweltering hot day. Our room was blessedly cool with great AC and the shower was wonderful. Our bed was comfortable and the room as a whole was well-laid out and spotlessly clean. We were able to park right outside our door and moving our luggage to and from the car was a breeze. The breakfast next day was very good and once again the people at the main desk were helpful and friendly. A nice way to start the day, we thought. An additional plus are the several comfortable common rooms. All in all, a great stay and we'll be back.

Nice hotel a little old fashioned. The staff were very friendly. Close to the highway and close to the outlet stores. Great value for your dollar. Second time here almost went somewhere else but the price was about the same and the staff were so good why chance another place.

We stayed at this hotel over the 4th of July. The room was quite large but very dark because of the 80's dark green wall paper. We had a jacuzzi tub so that was nice. The front desk staff was not the greatest as everytime we asked them for information about the area or where we could see fireworks they had a slight attitude. I also wante to make a reservation on line for a harbor cruise but the guest computer did not have a printer. I asked the front desk to help me print my tickets and they refused. Very limited breakfast. Pool is very nice. Best location if you want to shop at the outlets. Only 5 mins from downtown Portsmouth, NH which is a must.

I am happy to hear you were able to enjoy our heated, outdoor pool. This summer has been a hot one and I know how nice it feels to cool off with a swim. I am sorry that you were not satisfied with our Front Desk staff. Each member of our team tries their very best to make each guest feel like they are coming home. Our staff thanks you for your review as we use this information to continue providing quality service so that we may be the best we can.

The Coachman is the place to stay if you are headed to Maine for some beach time combined with super shopping. Very close to my favorite beach, York Beach, but the price beats staying at rentals on the beach by a long shot! The pool is terrific, the outlet malls are just across Rte.1. If beaching and shopping are your thing, this is the place! The breakfast was certainly all I needed with hot and cold cereal, muffins, rolls, yogurt, and fruit available. There are several restaurants nearby, if you require a big breakfast. My room was very clean, the bed comfortable. There is a gameroom with a big screen TV, game table, and a computer. Very family oriented. The staff... all of them... could not be friendlier or more accommodating. Great stay!

Room Tip: My room was on the first floor. I had 2 access doors, one led into the hotel hallway with access to...

Nice clean place and great location. The decor is from the 1980's but it's clean and comfortable.
It has a heated outdoor pool that was nice
Continental breakfast was ok.
Bathroom was clean but could use more towels especially if you use the pool.
Free morning paper too.

We stopped here last year (July 2012) for one night and our room was really nice. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was excellent, but simple. It was perfect for what we wanted. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: They took AARP discount.
