4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, amenities
A quaint country inn, except with pools, hot tubs and outdoor bars. No, it isn't the lap of luxury, but you're in Kennebunkport! If you want a luxury hotel, stay in Portland. This place gave you a taste of the region and culture, surrounded by trees and forests. It is a half-hour walk to town, but a pleasant walk. The staff here --- mainly only one person --- was extremely attentive, personal and helpful --- directing me what to do for transportation (very few Uber or Lyft drivers in the area) The rooms are dated, but in a good way with an old country feel. Two enormous swimming pools and oversized hot tubs --- outdoors in the winter was awesome and they stayed hot. I'd love to come back when the Outdoor Bar and cafe is open.

Stuck in the 1970’s. Stained carpet, comforter, rusty heating units. We checked in and left without an overnight. So sorry.

Spent two nights here while in the area for a funeral. Reception person was very pleasant and helpful. Checked us in right away (and a bit early). Room on first floor - easy access. Room was big enough and suitable for our purposes. Water pressure in bath fine. Fan in bathroom was attached to the only light and it super noisy - so impossible to keep a light on in the night in order to get to the bathroom safely. Pillows were comfortable. Bed was a bit hard for our liking. TV worked fine -- and there was wifi though I kept getting a message from my laptop that it wasn't safe and they recommended I not use it. Since I had to do some work, this was not an option. Breakfast choices (included) were adequate -- hard boiled eggs, yogurt, instant oatmeal, some dry cereal, bagels, English muffins, some muffins -- so good enough for a night or two though if we stayed longer we would have ventured out for other options. Coffee was good. It felt like we were the only ones staying there. Super quiet. Looks like it might have been really nice resort in the past but had a bit of a run-down feel to it -- grass growing through cracks in concrete where the pool was, evidence of ceiling leaks in the dining area, stains on carpeting and drapes. Price was pretty good for off-season. Pretty area and close to the Port, though not walkable. It served our purposes.
