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.... More

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,... More

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.... More

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.

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. More

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,... More

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.

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)!

If one is looking for just a place to sleep, with no concerns about noise or quality of the room, then this would be an acceptable place. Given the expectations of the community and the website, then I would not recommend this location. The rooms need to be maintained or updated with better quality products.

On the pro side, this place had clean, comfortable beds and a low price point comparable to neighboring properties. But the old wallcoverings, furniture and especially the bad carpet makes it depressing and unattractive. NOT quaint, but tired. Location was out of town, but was OK. We would not go there again. I would rather spend more and stay in... More
