For almost $300, including a $20 "resort fee", we were given a 10x10 room with a view of the front drive. Underwhelming. The staff was congenial but few in number and hard to find. The room was a real yawner. You can't provide a decent...More

Thank you so very much for choosing to stay with us. The Breakwater Inn & Spa is just about a mile away from Dock Square. This can be a benefit for some but not all. We do have cruiser bikes for our guests to use...More

Took a quick, last minute trip to Kennebunkport. Stayed at the Breakwater. It’s a nice hotel, but I don’t think it was worth the price we paid. Three flight walk up to room; no elevator. It’s okay, we needed the exercise. Room was spacious and...More

While I am happy to hear you may have had an enjoyable stay overall, it is unfortunate we missed some opportunities. The Breakwater Inn & Spa is comprised of two separate buildings. Each with its own personality, amenities and configurations. The historic Inn Building does...More

no pool or beach but just a short ride away is a beautiful beach full of sun worshippers, dogs and not too many seashells. Maine water is a bit cold but it sure does refresh.
