"Comfortable Historic Inn."
Nice historic pet friendly hotel. Good location to shopping and tourist attractions. Unfortunately the highly rated hotel restaurant was not open the time we were staying there. Our room was in the back of the hotel convenient to parking and we didnt need to enter/exit through the main lobby. Nice big comfortable bed, huge closet, fun bathtub. I would […] recommend staying at the inn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what we expected"
When we booked our room, we were not told their restaurant is not open Sun & Mon. We were told days later there was plenty of restaurants close there isn't. Also told there were plenty of taxi's, there is but in other towns. So it cost $25 to get to Dock Square one way, not including tip. The Inn needs updates and pictures on the wall, there was none […] in our room. Maybe if the restaurant and bar was open, or it was summer it would have been better. Disappointed! Not terrible, but we will not be staying there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very OLD Hotel"
Hotel is Very old ,with your door closed people passing down hall can see into rooms .the walls are paper thin ,need I say more !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Small town charm"
I have read many negative reviews on this Inn. I found that it had a small town charm to it. An Inn that built in 1800s. Yes the wallpaper was outdated, the bathroom was small - but it was expected. Staff was friendly & I would definitely stay there again. Oh, no worries about the Inn being haunted, was not much activity while we were there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not as website shows"
We like old. We like antiques. This was run down old. Would not recommend to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
I lovely place to stay with friendly staff. It's a lot cheaper than staying in kennebunkport itself and easy to get to.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel we have ever stayed in."
This hotel is just plain nasty. I paid $235.00 for the smallest, dirtiest room ever. One bed and one dresser and barely enough room to walk around the bed. Not even a chair to sit and put your shoes on. You had to watch the tiny TV while lying on the bed only. The bathroom was a joke. It was so tiny and so dirty, we wouldn't even shower there. Thank […] goodness we only stayed for one night. The sink was only about 12 inches wide. I didn't think anyone even made such small sinks. There was no place to rest your toothbrush or hair brush or to put any of your toiletries. The shower was so small and dirty. The doors were difficult to close, so as you tried to sleep, all you heard was slamming doors everywhere. The bathroom looks like it hasn't been painted since the Inn was built in the 1700's. The bathroom and bedroom had paint chipped everywhere. Since it was built so long ago, there was probably lead paint under all of those chips. I don't think this is a very healthy place to visit. On top of everything, it was dusty as hell. There was probably 1/2 inch of dust on top of the lampshades and along the woodwork in the bathroom. The a/c smelled badly and the filter was probably clogged. They did not even serve any breakfast at all. For that price, it was certainly a rip off. I told the young lady at the desk that she needed to be sure the owners were made aware of the condition of this Inn. Nasty, nasty, nasty!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Charming Village Inn"
Very nice Inn with a superb restaurant. The room was charming and not a chain-type fell. They gave us a choice of rooms. The inn allowed us to bring outer Lab Retreiver as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next to noisy construction site"
This property is in serious need of a major overhaul. The bathroom was small and uncomfortable, small sink with no counter space not even a shelf. Toiletries had to go on the floor. The mirror was slanted so guests would have to bend down to look into it. The room was uninviting although the bed was comfortable. Steps were steep making it difficult […] to get luggage upstairs. No help offered by the one staff member. Coffee was not offered till 7:30. Overall, I would not recommend this property to anyone. I can't rate service because there was none.

"An pleasant inn run by "foodies""
The Kennebunk Inn offers pleasant, but unsophisticated lodging, with a very nice restaurant in a quiet small town setting. It served the needs of my wife and me well as we traveled overnight to pick up our daughter who spent the summer as a camp counselor in Maine. The owners are a husband and wife team who met as students at the Culinary Institute […] of America. As might be expected the dining room is more impressive than the guest rooms. Our room was adequate but sparse with nowhere to sit other than the bed and not so much as a shelf to rest a toilet bag on in the bathroom. I ended up putting mine on the floor as I shaved and brushed my teeth. The Kennebunk is recommended for those who rather endure a few minor quirks than spend another night in a generic chain hotel room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Old and Dirty"
I frequently like older hotels with charm, this had none. The town location is great. Be aware that if you are on the third floor you may be lugging suitcases up several flights of stairs. Porch was still littered with bar classes at 9 AM the next morning left from the night before,Genuine Expedia guest review
Came with very young kids - not the best inn for this situation. Though our room/suite was perfect for our group, we were on the third floor and since kids will be kids, you really can't stop them from crying, screaming and stomping after sleeping or being stuck in a car ride to come to Maine. Not even the best parents or babysitters can stop this. […] So aside from being sorry for the other guests, it was not restful at all. Maybe the idea of staying here would have been better for just a couple or a group of adult friends or families with older children. Other then that, the place was okay. I just do not understand why the front desk wasn't staffed and we were on our own from the time we arrived before 9PM and when we checked out at 7AM. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice & Well Priced"
This was a nice hotel/inn . Rooms are a little dated but quaint and charming. Our room was #5 on the first floor at the back of the building. It is a nice room that accommodated us and our two kids with its 2nd room daybed. Very nice. However, the room as window ac units and everyone smokes behind the building and our window units seem to be sucking […] that air into the room. So our room smelled like smoke. It wasn't unbearable but if you don't like smoke this is not the room for you. Bring some bottled water as there is none in the room. Staff was wonderful and bed comfortable. Bathroom had all the amenities you need. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint and cozy stay!"
The staff was absolutely charming! Even though this Inn was built in 1799, it had all the updated amenities and I can't say enough about our wonderful and relaxing stay! We just loved it and will definitely be back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a good room."
The "family suite" had two bedrooms connected together with no door and no common area. You had to walk through someone else's bedroom to get to the bathroom. Bad shower, old tub with a shower head that could not be adjusted down, would spray directly at your face with water jetting out over the shower curtain onto the floor. It was a quaint Inn in […] a very nice town with old shops along the street, but the rooms need to be worked on. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Make sure it is the Hotel you are looking for."
The hotel is older and not updated. There was peeling paint, water marks on the ceiling, Hot water took a while to get warm in the morning and there was construction going on literally 10 feet from my window. The check in lady was not very friendly. The hotel is very similar in name to the Hotel I actually researched and was trying to book. Kennebunk […] Inn vs. Kennebunkport Inn. Price was about the same and I was rushing to purchase the room and booked the wrong hotel. So be careful and make sure this is what you want. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"No Stars Needed"
we booked this room through expedia, who rated the hotel 3.5. This room was dirty, thread bare sheets, wallpaper peeling off the wall, moldy air conditioning. It was not 3.5 quality. I would not recommend this Inn. The manager called me back a week later and said they had better rooms and it was my fault for not asking for one. What was not to understand, […] we told them we were not happy with the quality of the Inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ok place to stay"
The inn needs major updating. While it is understood the age and to maintain the history, things like: calcified shower heads, extremely hard mattresses, no curtains only white blinds which let in early am light and street light, no "vanity" stand in bathroom make this a hard sell at $150 night. $5 off food purchase in restaurant is not very generous […] considering the food prices. The woman at the desk was not overly friendly and pretty much left you to the brochures by the door .. Basically here is your key and room, I'm busy. I would not not recommend this place to a friend.

"Wait until construction is finished next door!"
The Kennebunk Inn has a certain charm, but is a little run-down in places, too. However, as of late June 2014 there is major construction of a new Town Pavilion going on RIGHT NEXT DOOR. They start at 7 AM with earth movers, crane work, etc. There were literally men bolting girders with a plain view into our 3rd story windows. The Inn did not warn us […] that this would be happening when we made our reservation. You don't really want to stay here until the construction is finished ... perhaps by end of July, 2014? Check with hotel staff. Food in the Academe restaurant is very good (but note they are closed Mondays). Hotel was retrofitted with sprinkler pipes that run in and out of rooms just above head height. I couldn't raise my arms in the shower to rinse without hitting a pipe. Madison family suites are roomy, and have a full kitchen (not just a kitchenette), but no pots, pans, or staples ... so you'll be shopping. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was in a great location, also had very good customer service. It was your old typical inn located in the heart of one of New England's hidden gem towns. I was extremely happy with my stay until about 5:00am on the morning after I stayed......loud construction going on right outside of my window, impossible for me to sleep. I had to get up […] at 5:00am to locate my car and then go park in a neighborhood to sleep for another few hours. If sleeping in my car was in my plans I would have stayed at another hotel. The least they could have done was give me a warning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"old but nice"
This is a very old building, built as a doctor's office and home in 1799. There is an outdoor patio in the back (not very clean) and a porch with white, wooden rocking chairs on the front. We stayed in the Jefferson Room. It was a bit smallish but very nice and clean. The old wooden floors creak and the bath that was added to the room was very small […] but functional. No shelves for toiletries or anything. Nothing special. No coffee pot in the room. You have to get up and get dressed and go downstairs for a cup of coffee. The location of this hotel is not handy to restaurants. We took a taxi down to the Hurricane Restaurant and the food was excellent. If you require an elevator, this is not the hotel for you. We stayed here for the history not the luxury. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our weekend away"
We had dinner in the inn on a Saturday evening. We were very disappointed with the meal. I had the lobster pie which is supposed to be their signature dish. It consisted of a small shallow dish with exactly 1 small lobster claw in it and a few tiny pieces of knuckle meat from that one claw in a chowder base. It came with a giant piece of puff pastry […] on top of it and nothing else. I was still starving after eating it. My dinner companion had fish and chips which looked a lot more filling for less money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room 14 is to avoid at all cost. I felt I was sleeping on the yellow line of the main street. Traffic stopped around midnight and started again at 6 am. The traffic noise pollution mainly came through the AC. This hotel -at least the room I was in needs a little TC. No glass of water in the room. This was overly priced for what it offers. The room at […] regular price is $160!!! However, the food and staff at the bar were both extremely nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I absolutely loved the Kennebunk Inn! I called the Inn a few days before my check in (because I would be arriving after their front desk person left), the lady I spoke with told me she'd leave my keys on the desk and I could come in through the patio entrance of the Inn. When I got there, the keys were exactly where she said they'd be, with a note telling […] me to enjoy my stay. And I did. The room was adorable. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We stayed in a Jefferson Room that had a view of Main St in Kennebunk. The only reason I rated the staff as "okay" is because we arrived after the staff had left and left in the morning before any staff had arrived. My only regret staying here is that we didn't stay longer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room very small bathroom very smallGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked a dog friendly room and paid extra for the "Jefferson Room" on the first floor with access to the patio. When I arrived, I was brought to a room on the second floor that was not what I had expected. I did ask about changing to the room that I had originally received confirmation for when I booked it online. They very pleasantly transferred […] me to the "right" room. Room was full of character. View was the parking lot but there was easy access to the outside for my dog, if necessary. There were no special amenities offered such as listed on their website, i.e. coupons to local restaurants, welcome gift basket, etc. Overall, it was pleasant, staff were welcoming and polite. I came on a Monday so I missed the opportunity to dine at Academe but found other great options nearby as well as a local dog park that was great. I had to find out where to take my dog through a local pizza shop server Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Comfortable inn with restaurant."
When we arrived, the reservation was ready and the head clerk was expecting us. Check-in was swift and friendly. We had coffee and desert in the restaurant. This was a very restful time.

Food was delicious. The staff we helpful and accommodating. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We pictured a historic old inn, a warm welcome, and cozy romantic room,. but were disappointed. It is a big old place, with much potential from the outside, but the rooms looked liked the place had been hastily furnished on a shoestring budget without an eye to aesthetics or color. We arrived in the evening, the inn was empty and we were 1 of 2 cars […] in the lot all night. By the time found our way to the front desk (the front door was locked), there was a young woman who give us papers, but was not particularly welcoming or helpful. There was an assortment of very mundane yard sale-type furniture in the numerous open rooms we saw upstairs. Overall, our room décor left much to be desired and I was surprised that I did not notice fireplaces in any of the many rooms I saw. Only 2 rooms offered a king sized bed and both were disappointing. The wall to wall carpet in our room was dated, worn and looked like it needed a shampoo. The room was clean but the carpet had an old dusty smell, but none of the charm and character you'd expect. The furnishings were a mishmash of random pieces - certainly no antiques or reproductions, nor chosen with any thought to a color scheme or the 1800's time period of the building. The headboard was broken. We were 1 of 2 guests in that huge place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Expecting hilton, this is not for you"
After reading the reviews and already having booked this place I was very nervous... What I care about is cleanliness and I saw no reviews that even mentioned anything negative about that. The negative reviews were about people's expectations of a high end hotel. This is an inn from the 1799 that was refurbished for hotel use. Floors creak, yes, small […] rooms, yes. Very clean and well kept, quaint. Either you love it or you hate it. We personally enjoyed it. From the reviews we learned to leave our luggage in the car and just brought in our amenities for a one night stay. There was no room for 2 bags of luggage, and yes the bathroom small, but clean.

"Average but nice"
/This property is located in a great location in the middle of Kennebunk. The building is over 200 years old with retro fitted plumbing, electricity, etc, It does have very steep and narrow stairs so be prepared and pack light for your stay. The check in clerk also is host to the on sight restaurant and was pleasant as were all the staff we encountered. […] The room was smaller than average but probably considered quite spacious when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were president and the king bed took up much of the room space. Fixtures are older but typical for a restoration and the bed met our comfort expectation. The room was clean but not spotless. Our room was in the back of the building and very quiet. Overall the stay was pleasant enough. The room rate was higher than one would expect for the time of year and there are dozens of other lodging options available in the area. No breakfast was offered but coffee and juice were available in the lobby. There are an abundance of restaurants within close walking distance. If you want the ambiance of a 200 ;year old building this is a great option but be prepared for the trappings that go with it.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay in Kennybunk"
The Kennybunk Inn is a decent old hotel in "downtown" Kennybunk. There's a restaurant in the hotel as well as a great restaurant right across the street. Our room was spare, but clean and the bed was great. The hotel provides a discount coupon for breakfast at a cafe a few doors away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"warning not where you want to stay"
The room was the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in. The bathroom was even smaller and wasn't well kept. The window ac unit was so loud we couldn't keep it on even though it was hot. I would never recommend this Inn and I would never stay there again. It was more like a boarding house than an Inn and it was way overpriced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great, historic building with lots of charm"
Great amenities for such an old building, everything felt very comfortable. The charm of the creaky wood floors in the hallway were never a bother once inside the room. Never hear a peep from outside our room. The only downside was the restaurant was closed the 2 days we were there (Sunday & Monday).Genuine Expedia guest review
