“Just Ok, maybe a bit better than that.”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Nice place, not near the KBP beach.

The KBP Trolly will take you about, but again, not near the beach.

The "Lobsta Bakes" are only avil. to those with a bunch of people attending.

Nice people, and almost worth the long way to the beach ;-)

We've had a couple College reunions there, with mixed reviews by the Alumni.

SMBull, Owner at Rhumb Line Resort, responded to this review, 17 April 2012
We like to say that we are on the quiet side of the five-mile Ocean Avenue Loop in Kennebunkport. Whether you take a right or left out of our drive way, you will wind up in Dock Square. We are a short drive to both Kennebunk Beach and Goose Rocks Beach. Normally, if someone indicates to us that they want to be only a short WALK to the ocean, we suggest other lodgings in the area as we want everyone to have a good vacation experience. What we do have are both an indoor and outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, the only hotel in the area to have them all.

We are in the process of upgrading some rooms and will continue to renovate until the entire hotel is done. Our lobster bakes are served daily from the Admiral's Table, our outdoor seasonal restaurant that is open from June to September.

Thank you for your comments. We take each one seriously and act upon them all.

From the moment we checked in, a charming lady at the front desk/lobby welcomed us. Melony was so sweet to our nine year old and made us feel like we were the only guests in the hotel. The recommendations for dinners and sightseeing were just right.

The room was clean and comfortable with a nice private deck, the indoor pool was great and the hot tub was paradise. A short scenic walk to a shell covered beach made our three day, two night get away from Pennsylvania one that we'll always remember and keep coming back to the Rhumb Line. Wish we had more time to spend but we only had short time.

PS The complimentary breakfast and the area was very nice!

Room Tip: Check out Walkers Point for pictures and Allison's Rest in town for great seafood (but go by wha...

From the first minute to the last this was a great place to be. The staff is wonderful, helpful and
interested in making our visit the best. Recommendations and reservations for dinner were made by the evening desk manager. Photos were taken and shopping tips were given by the morning manager. My wife and the couple traveling with us were are in love with the Rhumb Line. We've already booked our room for August 2012. See you soon.

We've become regular customers at least twice a year, (always during the off season because we vacation in Rhode Island with our camper in the summer) but always get very excited about a weekend at the Rhumb Line Resort. Melony is a very familiar and very friendly person (I believe she is the Manager who lives on site there.) She is very accomodating and is always helpful if you need help on where to go to eat, etc. Our favorite spot in the evening is in the outdoor hot tub. It stays open until 10pm so we always have time to enjoy it after we go out for dinner. Our children who are grown now still talk about the great memories of us spending a weekend away at the Rhumb Line! My husband made me smile when I woke up at home getting ready to go back to work when I saw a note that said he was ready to go back for another weekend there; I wish we could have both called out for a few more days and headed back up to Kennebunkport to stay at The Rhumb Line Resort!

I stayed with a coupon the yanks take this things very seriously the man behind us at the desk was asked to pay anouther $50 and did! just becouse he had failed to pick up a free coupon book but even at full price this is good value place to stay although a little way from the town you get to drive past the home of the older bush on the way in or out. Rooms are large and a little dated avoid 'food' staff very friendly although somewhat over worked at the time I stayed

Room Tip: some rooms face pool good for long stays
