"The Kennebunk Inn stay"
It was a nice stay. There are, however, nicer places with comparable prices closer to the beach. It was nonetheless a good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"old fashioned but not portrayed in ads that way..."
Wifi was intermittant. Not near the beach. Restaurant and bar are good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint historic hotel"
Very clean hotel, very nice staff, bathrooms need major updating. Hotel is located in the middle of the town of kennebunk, lots of parking. Good food at the restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's an old, historic inn, which has both positives and negatives. The negatives: The floors creak anytime anyone walks by. If you don't have your AC on full blast, you constantly hear noises outside your room. Watch where you place things; don't place valuables on the night table; the floors are uneven so anything will slide off it onto the floor, […] and perhaps, get lost in between the floor boards. Unless you have a family suite or a special room, the regular rooms are extremely small and sparse. Lighting is an issue. The TV remote didn't work well. Positives: The Inn has a lot of character. The owners are terrific and the staff is friendly and helpful. You can get beach passes for free (with a deposit). It's in a great location. They have an agreement with a wonderful deli two doors down, and you get a discount. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I stayed at the Inn for three nights during the July 4 holiday weekend. The Inn is centrally located in the heart of downtown Kennebunk where there are delightful shops, restaurants and historical sites. On Saturdays, there is a farmers market right next door with locally grown produce. The Inn gave us a beach pass to use at the local […] beaches. We went to Mother's Beach and Parsons Beach. Parsons Beach was by far the nicer beach and it is right in the middle of the Rachel Carson estuary. Our room was clean and cozy with a very comfortable king size bed. Amenities included a fantastic covered porch complete with wonderful rocking chairs and a large patio in the back of the Inn where you can sit at tables with umbrellas and sip your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine from the dining room bar. The dining experience at the Inn is NOT to be missed. They served a special on the Saturday: New England clam chowder. I ordered it at lunch and then again at dinner. The chowder was one of the best things I ever ate. The Lobster pot pie is not to be missed either. The Inn owners are CIA (Culinary Institute of America) grads and one can not go wrong dining at the Inn. Management and staff are friendly, pleasant, helpful, and competent. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Inn was friendly and in a good location for nearby shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
A nice quaint inn. Quiet. Away from the tourist area. But on a busy street, even at 6 in the morning. The room was on the smallish side. Their restaurant was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel room very clean"
We were on third floor. Room was very hot. Otherwise no complaintsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location with a shuttle bus close to hotel"
Old building but pretty well kept. 3 levels of rooms. We had the lowest and it was a bit small, but we enjoyed the stay. Great restaurant. very nice people. No elevator, so steps might be a problem for some.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel at the center of a charming Maine town"
Had a pleasant one night stay. Hotel more like a B & B atmosphere. Quiet town with nice amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Diesel truck wake up"
This hotel is quaint, has great service staff and is antique. The down side is that all the trucks passing through Kennebunk go right by this property. OMG! I hardly got any sleep after 5am due to truck noise even while wearing heavy duty ear plugs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was charming. The hostess and breakfast were great! The setting on the water was very relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place puts much more effort and attention on the restaurant than the inn. TV and style is out of date & we would have liked a bathtub. Hot tea, juice, and coffee in the morning was very nice. The town is adorable- sweet little Farmer's Market right next to the Inn on Saturdays.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful location close to where you want to be"
The Inn was clean and comfortable. We checked in on New Year's Eve and Kennebunk was busy! We were 10 minutes from Kennebunkport where we were having dinner. Room was small but sufficient, bathroom small...but shower was good. The next room's bathroom was a bit close and wall maybe a bit thin :-) ...Yes, I would stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were extremely disappointed with the Kennebunk Inn. The room was so small it was difficult for 2 people to move around. There was a queen mattress on a king frame, which made getting in and out of bed on one side rather awkward. The bathtub was a quaint claw foot tub, very high sides and hard to get in and out. The shower was added later and you […] are totally surrounded by a heavy shower curtain. We are petite ladies, If you consider yourself larger than average, the bathing experience will be frustrating. Our room was on the second floor over the restaurant/bar and it was extremely noisy. The stairs to the second and third floor were directly in from of our room and were quite noisy; as well as squeaky floors above. We have stayed in hostels on the east and west coasts that were much more commodious at a much more reasonable rate. For you coffee addicts, you can buy it down the street at 6AM weekdays and 7AM weekends or wait till the hotel brings coffee at 7:30!! We would recommend the restaurant...the food was delightful!

"Clean Quirky inn"
It is an old house and its very quirky. Floors aren't level and creak, bathrooms are sometimes old fixtures, etc. The doors and as a result, patrons, can be loud. It is however one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in and the staff is very friendly. I sleep there with ear plugs and its very comfortable. They are currently updating the heating […] as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Exceed our expectations!"
I booked a room at this inn with a little reluctance because the ratings and reviews are very polarizing. Upon arrival, we were immediately put at ease. The hotel was extremely easy to find on a main street and there was ample parking. We were able to check in immediately and were given recommendations on where to eat. Our room was not considered "modern" […] because of the period charm wall paper, but was very clean and spacious. This did not at all make us unhappy (as some of the other reviewers were) because the quality of the building and room had the characteristic New England B&B style we have come to enjoy for the charm and history. The in-house restaurant was accomodating (brought us wine to sip while we briefly waited in the hotel lobby) and the food was excellent. The only negative of our particular room was it was next to the stairs on the 3rd floor so we heard a lot of stair traffic throughout the night. Overall, we were very pleased considering all the negative reviews and would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor quality room for rate charged."
Staff were very helpful and food excellent but hotel Is "beyond tired"! If the attention to detail addressed to the food and staff striving to provide a good service was applied throughout the hotel - then it would be well worth the rates charged. Unfortunately, this is not the case.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet New England getaway"

"close to beach"
Old Inn that is well maintained with excellent food and beverage service. The Inn is located in the old downtown area with interesting shops. The staff is very friendly and very knowledgable about the sites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are tiny, but we expected that. What we didn't expect was that the bathroomshaven't been revoated in decades. Claw foot tubs surrounded by a not so clean shower curtain, old porcelain wall hung sinks with separate hot and cold water spouts and absolutely no place to spread personal hygience / make up products. Noisy window mounted air condtioner […] that barely kept the room comfortable, plus when I looked at the vents saw some nice green mold. For the cost we would have thought that there would have been at least a continental breakfeast- instead, just coffee and juice, despite the fact that the Inn's restaurant is right there. Would never recommend this place to anyone Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room we stayed in was at the top of stairs adjacent to an entry onto a patio dining area. The door constantly was slamming as wait staff served guests on the patio. We were hoping to get some rest.. The room was on the small side and the bathroom was tiny and very dated. the room could have had a better feel with walpaper and some mainenance treatments. […] The bed, however, was comfortable and it appears that much of the rest of the hotel has been updated. The staff was very friendly. The two things that would bring us back is that the Hotel is located close to Kennebunkport and the rate is half the cost of the more expensive hotels in Kennebunkport.

"Small but comfortable"
The rooms are very small. The first part of our trip we stayed in a small room, this room, was even smaller, so don't expect too much space. I think for the money it was a little tiny. The bathroom, since it was added was a bit small and awkward. East access to the rooms though, and everything was clean. We thought about enjoying the restaurant, especially […] after hearing about the lobster pot pie, but after looking at the menu, was very dissapointed. Nothing really stood out and the pot pie was on the appetizer menu and cost way way more than it should. Overall, it was nice to be away from the beach crowd, but I don't think I would want to pay those rates again for such a small space when down the street was what looked like a cottage type room for less.

"Not what we expected"
When walking into the hotel it was really pretty and looked very inviting, however when we got to our room there was a shade pinned over the window that we couldn't take down, paint peeling off the floor and when we took a shower in the old bathtub, the water didn't drain and withing 30 seconds we were ankle deep which didn't make for an enjoyable start […] to the day. The bathroom door was old and didn't even shut all the way. The Inn is old so don't expect to sleep in because you can hear the creaky floors and people slam their doors in the morning. I'm usually not too hard to please, but this is probably the worst place I've stayed. We expected breakfast in the morning, but all we got was coffee and juice. Some positives were the location, it's on a nice little street, we felt safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"dont stay here"
tiny room, out-of-date but not historic furnishings, noisy.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Kennebunk Inn was a great spot to relax, enjoy a lovely lobster pie dinner and fresh baked cookies daily! With old New England charm, the Inn was a perfect location to get to surrounding sites of Kennebunkport, York and Ogunquit. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We will recommend this spot to friends and family!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were not aware there would be no elevator and 20 steps to our room. My friends has a bad hip and struggled to climb the stairs. Room was tiny filled with the queen bed and furniture. Could barely walk around it. The bathroom was so small you had to enter the door sideways. Claw tub was impossible for my friend to navigateThere was an extra locked […] door in our room that obviously entered into our neighbors bathroom. Heard bathroom flush, shower, hair dryer and more . I will say the staff was always kind and helpful but couldn't help us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean room, friendly staff. Floors were squeaky, room was very small for the price... Maybe out of season its not as bad but I feel I was overcharged. No fridge, bathroom was tiny. Can't say I would go there again but only because of over price for small roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
we were taken to the third floor fire trap suite with the old filthy carpet. when I practically panicked being asthmatic, we were given a first floor room with windows that did not even open. that was the one thing on the third floor, the windows had been replaced. Had lunch at historic hotel on the water, with pool, beautiful rooms and view for less […] $$ checked out three other properties for the next visit to the area. this facility is WAY WAY overpriced compared to other properties. Maintenance of the building is very poor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quaint inn conveniently located"
Our room was comfortable but sometimes a bit noisey from the bar below. However, service was great and the food superb.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have to keep in mind that as an inn, it comes with personality, creaky floors, slamming doors. and beautiful ambiance. All was lovely with the inn, but unfortunately there was a young soccer team staying in the room above us and they were rarin' to go with cleats and all about 6:45am - for about an hour. Yes, I was ready to visit them, but what can […] you do with young children? Maybe put them on the first floor next time? Thanks again for a nice stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kennebunk Inn October 2011"
Stayed here one night October 2011. Drove up from Boston, arrived about 10:30 p.m. Nobody at front desk but my key was laid out on the counter for me. Nicely furnished room with antiques and creaky floorboards! Small desk but no chair for writing or computing. Wireless access worked fine. Bathroom was small (to be expected in a building of that age), […] no shelf for toothbrush or glass. Comfortable bed, good towels and toiletries. Room was chilly - no individual controls for heat. Extra blanket provided (and used). Radiator came on in the morning. Not much in the way of restaurants in the neighborhood - one in the hotel and one across the street, coffee shop on same side of street. I only tried the latter. I might have felt a little cramped during a longer stay; still,I found this to be a charming example of a New England inn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet location with excellent food"
We had a two night stay in during the Harvest Fest at Kennebunk,the location was excellent,bustling during the feat and quiet at other times. Food was excellent, and service was good. This is an old building and it does come across as a little under the weather but all considered it's still quite a good place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad, not great"
We booked this hotel because we thought the price seemed reasonable. The hotel was OK. It is a very old building. The floors creak and the walls seem quite thin. That said, we did not hear much noise throughout the night. It was very quiet. But that may have had more to do with the guests staying there at the time. I imagine if the hotel had some loud […] guests you would easily hear it. The bed was decent. The bathroom was not very nice. It was small and old. The shower was tiny and old, wasn't nice. The staff were courteous. There was no breakfast. Just coffee and juice. There are a couple of breakfast places nearby (Perfectos has good bagels). Overall the location is decent. It is close to a few restaraunts and pubs. The lady at the front desk was really pushing the hotel restaurant on us. So on our second night there we decided to give it a try. I'll admit, the food was pretty good, but the portion sizes were quite small, especially for the price. I ordered the lobster pot-pie. Again, it was very good, but the portion size is small. I got a lot more lobster in a $6 lobster roll I bought at a local grocery store. My finance ordered a crab-cake salad. The crab cake was good, although you only get one, and I wouldn't be advertising it as a "salad" since the amount of vegentables that came with it was minuscule. It was definitely apetizer-size. Note: there are no walk-out balconies on this hotel, despite expedia advertising so. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not close from Kenneybunkport"
Just ok, could have been much better with more creativity.....the hotel is not located close to Kenneybunkport and they could have done the difference with the service with flowers in the hotel, with free bottle of water in the room, with small chocolates....In the morning they serve coffee and juice and the tables were not well clean and they could […] have make some efforts there to compensate for the location....

For the price this is a great place to stay. Quiet, very friendly staff, and clean and comfortable beds. The place is a little run down, but who cares for the atmosphere and comfort. Highly recommended for families as you can get a reasonable suite.Genuine Expedia guest review
Man sollte bedenken, dass der Atlantik ca. 8 km entfernt ist. Saubere Zimmer, in der die Klimaanlage in Höhe der Betten angebrachte ist, und zwar in einer Entfernung von nicht mehr als einem Meter.

Une vaste chambre agréable, ancienne, mais avec une réception WiFi problématique pour ne pas dire impossible à utiliser dans la chambre. Des indications erronées pour se brancher.

"Vieux bâtiment beaucoup trop bruyant.."
Pas bonne car chambres séparées par une seule vielle porte, certes fermée à clé, mais impression de partager la même chambre que les voisins car on entend "tous" les bruits de la chambre d'à-côté. Pas de petit déjeuner : seulement tasse de café sans aucune viennoiserie.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Description non représentative"
La description de la chambre ne correspondait pas à celle que nous avons eu. Il n'y avait pas de lit Queen à cet hotel, seulement une base de lit queen avec un matelas double par dessus(très ordinaire). Il n'y a pas non plus de balcon comme dans la description(il n'y en a aucun dans tout l'hotel). Le tout était tout de même propre.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
