Definitely do not skip this place! It is so clean, smells fresh and inviting, has a year round hot tub that is huge, and each room has its own balcony or outside access! It feels like a home away from home! Breakfast is cheesy and free (continental) simple bagels and yogurt with juice or coffee, there is no restaurant on-site,...

My fiance' and I have stayed here three times in the last three months! Beautiful setting, comfortable beds and cozy rooms, great continental breakfast! Can't wait to stay here in the Summer, as they have an outdoor pool, as well as an indoor and have a small outdoor restaurant near the pool, serving hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks! Family oriented!...

We stayed in Mid-October and found the hotel to be very nice. It was clean and had all the necessities we were looking for. As opposed to one of the comments I found the front desk to be very nice. Understand it is an upgrade over a budget hotel, and comparable to older Holiday Inns etc. As to comments on...

This was our first time back to Kennebunkport in quite a while. We booked this resort on line and they were kind enough to delay our arrival for one week because of weather at our home. A hurricane delayed our arrive. After checking in we found the hallway to be a little "used" with fading paint and traffic worn carpeting....

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Being a large establishment, we are upgrading portions of the building each year and continue with upgrades during the off season. Next spring the halls and common areas will see fresh paint and carpeting, as will the lobby and breakfast room. The continental breakfast is simple, I agree, but does contain fruits,...

The location is good and the grounds are kept up. However, our room and the common areas were in need of a lot of work. The carpets were stained, the linoleum floors in the bathroom were peeling and worn. Just didn't have a clean feel. Breakfast is downstairs and hardly worth the trip- nothing fresh. Staff was okay- but inexperienced....

The motel was out dated and run down but it was clean and the location was good. It was convenient to town and easy to find. The price was ok for the location in comparison to others. I would stay again if only staying for one night.

SMBull, Manager at Rhumb Line Resort, responded to this review

We have just completed updating all the rooms around the perimeter of the pool and plan on doing the common areas next spring. We know that touching up the paint and replacing carpeting is important. We have a fairly large facility and try to work on projects yearly. I hope we see you again.

Read all reviews this place then decide! The staff is just rude and unattentive to issues! Breakfast....forget it. Cleaning crew never threw any empty paper coffee cups out.....never leaned coffee maker! On top of that they state you will be charged $1.50 per person in room per day for a gratitude! We complained and were not charged that fee. Really,...

Fantastic! (Sep 15-18 2016) 50 years from our first day. Great place, we had the anniversary of our 1st day at Nasson College their last weekend, and it was PERFECT. The place, the Losbta Bake, and meeting areas. 47 people attended and all agreed the next one will be there! Great clean rooms, no problems and Melony was so attentive.

If it wasn't for a family members shirt engagement, I would have researched and stayed at a different hotel. While the pictures on the website look fresh and bright, the hotel rooms are dated and stained. The carpets need to be replaced as well as the curtains. Both were stained beyond any cleaning. There was loud banging next to my...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. I cannot address the noise situation. I do know that some people like to leave early for the next leg of their vacation or head home before traffic gets heavy. All of our hours are posted and there is a manual in each room with information about the hotel. Our desk hours are...

Only reason we stayed here was due to a wedding. I really wish we had stayed somewhere else. Our bedroom had 2 queen beds that were very low to the floor and the beds were uneven and extremely uncomfortable. I almost rolled off during the night (room 215 awful)!
