“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

I got a gift certificate for my 40th birthday to the Inn from family members and was finally able to use it. The inn was in a great location. We walked to all of the stores, galleries and dinner both nights. The renovations downstairs were very nice. Our room was decent. The decor of the bedroom and sitting area worked well w/ the house and the gas fireplace was great. The bathroom was disappointing. It didn't match anything else and felt less than luxurious. It's very small, the fixtures are dated, the cold faucet turned backwards, the toilet seat slides off when you sit on it, and the towels were tiny. Didn't feel comforting. On the second day of our stay I noticed the stools under the bed to help you get up onto the bed. I'm 5'7" and had a hard timing getting up onto it. And the mattress was really bad. I couldn't wait to get up each morning... not how you want to feel when staying at an inn. I actually enjoyed the noise from the room, it felt like we were in the middle of everything. The singing and cheering in the bar could get loud, but everyone seemed to be having a good time. The breakfast was okay, there was a good variety of foods out to pick from.

The Inn was superb - bar and dining areas had been refurbished and looked fabulous. Cosy bar with the ability to have a meal without going into the main restaurant was a bonus.

The room on the first floor was beautiful with gas fireplace and comfortable bed. We were at the rear of the building. If we stayed here again we would definitely insist on an upstairs room. The occupants of the room above us had a late night and then checked out at 4am. The noise of footsteps was also accompanied by an even more annoying squeaky floor. This took a slight edge off an otherwise excellent stay.

Thank you dingle58 for taking the time to review the Kennebunkport Inn. We
are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in our newly renovated
restaurant and pub. It is quite the happening place! Our chef has some
fantastic items on the new menu. I apologize that your room was noisy and
will endeavor to determine if we can solve some of that sqeakiness.. We
understand this can be tricky when trying to get a good night's sleep.
Please let us know in the future and we would be happy to accommodate you
on the 2nd floor.

This inn is in downtown Kennebunkport, close to all the sights. We chose the less expensive room with a king bed and the room was quite small though they did say on their web site that these rooms were 1/3 smaller than the more expensive rooms so no complaint there. Breakfast was quite good. Room was spotless. We would stay here again.

We stayed the weekend after Easter and had a fabulous time. Hotel was redone over the winter and it looks terrific! Bar and drink are now the type of place you actually want to drink and meet in instead with a white leather/blue Ralph Lauren sort of nautical look. Appetizers were terrifice - can't wait for summer small plates on the pation. Stayed in a small queen room it was fine but very small. Normally stay in King Suite over the pation but no need this time as hubby was home. New guy at desk this year very nice and friendly.

Thank you talkingtalent for your review! The new renovations have certainly changed the look of the Inn. We have an exciting season planned with entertainment in the pub and on the patio as well. The chef has prepared a fantastic new menu and we are delighted that you were able to enjoy some appetizers. We look forward to seeing you on the patio in late June!

I loved this place. The room -- very much a New England type Inn -- was comfortable and well done. Although the a/c didn't seem to work very well, it was cool enough to put a fan in the window and sleep comfortably all night. The entire hotel was well done, with beautifully well-done rooms and close proximity to shops and nightlife. Laura (sorry if she didn't want her name displayed) even opened the "closed" lounge to let us have a nightcap before bed. The entire hotel is immaculate beyond belief. This is certainly one of the best hotels in which I have ever stayed, and I cannot wait to go back.
