Having lost power due to a snow/ice storm and not wanting to spend a 2nd night in a cold house, the Seaside Inn popped up on our internet search to find a place for the night. My husband called to be sure that they had power and was given an extremely reasonable rate for our visit. We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival and directed to our room on the 2nd floor. The Inn is fairly old but has been well maintained. Our room and what we saw of the Inn was very clean. The view from our balcony was fantastic and one can imagine how great it is to be there in the summer. Having breakfast included was a plus and the muffins and coffee were both really good. Had we not lost power, we would have never found this place. Looking forward to an off season weekend escape to the Inn sometime in the future.

This is the second time we have stayed here in the off season. We enjoy having a room on the second floor with a balcony so we can see and hear the ocean. The free breakfast is a nice touch. Their muffins are delicious. We look forward to staying at the Seaside Inn next year!

We were here 9 years ago in December and thought it was quaint. We stole away a week before Thanksgiving in 2023 and the prices are great and the views are superb. As noted by others, a simple breakfast is included which we always took advantage. It may look old but the quality of things like the door going out to the room patio is solid, new, and better than a large chain hotel that I stayed at in Virginia Beach. Very quaint hidden gem.

Walk to the beach. Borrow a bike. Relax in a lovely new spa overlooking the ocean! Minimal breakfast includes homemade muffins & oatmeal in a cozy breakfast parlor. Staff is very friendly and the older inn has been tastefully and comfortably updated. Highly recommend

Can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Seaside Inn! Our room was clean and cozy, the staff was super friendly and the breakfast (those muffins!) was a great way to start our day. The Inn itself is charming and the private beach access and hot tub overlooking the water...you can't beat it. We will absolutely be staying here again on our next trip to Kennebunk.

This is a lovely old inn, located on a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach. The beds were comfortable; the shower was good; the staff is friendly and helpful; and there was more than enough drawer and closet space. A second-floor room overlooking the ocean would have been nice, but we enjoyed our first-floor room facing the ocean, where we could just walk out the door to our patio and continue on to the beach. I gave a the inn four star rating rather than five only because -- unlike many reviewers -- I thought the breakfast should have included a few more items. For example, although the muffins are absolutely delicious, the only other bread choices are white English muffins or white bagels -- there are no whole grain choices at all. And some yogurt would have been good; after the first night, I bought my own. That being said, there was enough food, and the coffee was very good. I would stay there again.

We had booked a room at The Seaside for Valentines, but on the day of the trip I got demoted to friend. I decided to go solo anyway and I was not disappointed. The room was very clean and looked out over the ocean. They put out a nice breakfast spread. The staff was really wonderful and warm. I’m staying here again.

We loved this location! The rooms were dated, but very clean, cozy and spacious. We were on the first floor with sliding glass doors that lead right out on the patio and a walking path right to the beach. The staff serving breakfast was very nice and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!
