Loved staying here this past weekend. Kate at the front desk was incredible helpful in finding and reserving dinner plans, and our room was clean and spacious. The internet didn't work in our room but they have a computer in the lobby, and we loved being so close to the ocean without being stuck in the town traffic.

The Rhumb Line is a throwback to the 1950's style resort, and outwardly nothing much has changed since then. It is definitely not Marriott quality, but it does have a rustic charm that we came to enjoy. The facilities and rooms are clean,and the beds were particularly comfortable. Sleeping was excellent with the cool Maine air. The outdoor area caters...

We enjoyed our stay for the price. There was free Internet and free parking. Lack of an elevator was a problem with luggage because we were on the third floor. Ask for the newer rooms when checking in, the older ones are very dated. The best thing about the resort was the lobster bake. It was so tasty and reasonably...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Rhumb Line on our first visit to Kennebunkport, ME. Although it is a little bit out of town, it was very easy to find our way to town and several good restaurants recommended by Katie. From our first contact with Katie we knew we had found our own personal concierge who happily...

My family recently stayed at the Rhumb Line and were very happy with the accommodations! The room was spacious and very clean. Although we had one of the older rooms, the beds were comfortable and everything was in perfect working order. We had direct access to the beautiful pool area, via a back door in our room. There was a...

We had a lovely stay at the Rhumb Line Resort. I think we had one of the refurbished rooms and it was lovely. The bed was great, the linens very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is one of the trolley stops which made it easy to get around Kennebunkport

Unfortunately this is not worth the money. Things started off poorly upon check in. The person at the Front Desk had us waiting at the front desk for 15 minutes while she took a phone call to book a room. There was no AC and it was in the middle of a heat wave. The rooms smell of urine and...

Just stayed at Rhumb Line for 5 days. I must say it was one of the best motels I have ever stayed at. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The kids love the indoor and outdoor pools. Us adults loved the hot tubs. The food outside was so tasty and affordable. Our rooms were spotless and when our air...

This is a quintessential Maine family resort with a large, beautifully landscaped grounds, beautiful pools and a convenient outdoor, canopied bar/restaurant serving lobster bakes and other traditional Summer fare. It's on the quiet side of town and strategically located between Dock Square and Gooserocks Beach. We have two small kids and the Rhumbline is a happy, clean, safe place for...

I have been travelling for a long time and usually stay at national hotel chains. I decided on this hotel because there was no national chain in Kennepunkport and we were invited to a wedding. The hotel charged me $189 per night on a "best rate package deal" but when I got to the hotel I saw that the rack...
