The riverfront location and the fact they had kayaking available was a big draw for us. The location is great apart from some awkward (temporary) road construction in front which makes entering and exiting the parking area a bit dicey. The inn was just renovated and shows some updates, but some features definitely seemed dated and worn out. Our room clearly wasn't one of the best they had and our "sitting area" (as opposed to deck) was two vinyl chairs next to the parking area, not facing the water. Some rooms have a water-facing deck, but not us. No matter. The kayaks are only available during the "high tide cycle" and usually only once per day. There's a three to four hour window when you can rent them, but the attendant is also on call. The place was clean and overall fine. Skip the free breakfast. Even with "fresh" waffles made from a tasteless, disgusting mix, the whole event is a glorified continental breakfast at best. Better to head to Ogunquit to the various breakfast joints and get a real breakfast. Limited kayaking hours was a surprise to us but it made sense because the river is tidal. A bit overpriced for what you get, but I am sure the area commands the prices because of summer attractions and the beautiful beach at Ogunquit.
Check-In was at 3:00pm and we were not able to get into our rooms until almost 4:00pm
the location was great to everything in the area,the free breakfast was not to bad either the room had a stuffy odor to it
The location was perfect, i really enjoyed the shuttle to the beach which is a big plus. The breakfast could hace been a bit more elaborated, the room smelled like mold.
the room and river scenery
The view crom the hotel over the marsh, the proximity to a clean sandy beach with rolling breakers and the comfort of the room. The fact that the hotel was on a main road, but the rooms are sufficiently laid back for that not to be a nuisance
the view was nice the service was good rooms clean decent comp breakfast had to climb open outside stairs to get to room
Loved our stay! The view was beautiful from our room. Really enjoyed the breakfast too. Not your typical continental breakfast. We'll be back!
Stayed in King room with balcony Great room room were recently renovated which was great view was good Room was under main lobby and could hear everybody going to breakfast
The hotel was right down the road from everything! The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine, very comfortable beds! No complaints!
Its comfortable, quiet, even the grounds are well lit ! Nothing.
Staff was very polite Room was a little stuffy, AC was very loud
Clean, large rooms. Sauna was broken and hot tub was closed (although it wasn't mentioned online).
The staff were very friendly, it was exceptionally clean, close to town. No hot tub available only seasonal
It was quaint The shower ceiling was very sharply angled in my room
The rooms are very small
It was a good location at a good price with nice, friendly people running the place.
The manager was very nice. The room was very smal and old. The blanket has spot on it. The carpet was not clean. It was ok for me but I would not recommand this hotel to my mother.
Poor breakfast, hotel style motel, old bed, expensive price, picture false the condition of the hotel. not happy. two stars max
breakfast, pool,It was closed to stores,beach,well to everything The price compared to the other just across.The colonial is old,very old
Short walking distance from the beach. Nice building from outside. Room was small, not too clean and the bed was uncomfortable. Bathroom was also ridiculously small. I do not recommend this hotel for a romantic week-end.
There was a nice Continental Breakfast supplied for free. Too far from downtown area (have to drive; not a quick walk).
To get to the second floor I had to go up 2 flight of stares. I would requested a first floor room as I am a senior citizen climbing stares with luggage is a challenge
the room was very nice, clean and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and a ceiling fan. breakfast was blah!
Beautiful and spacious room with an incredibly comfortable bed! The pool and hot tub was great too! Nothing

Hotel location is awesome -within a mile of downtown. One can easily walk, take the trolley or even drive & park. This Motel is more like a Hotel - really clean, quiet, with beautiful rooms. no
The best part of the experience was the staff. Everyone from the Front Desk staff to the cleaning staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The exterior and outdoor space of the hotel were the best physical features of the hotel. The pool was beautiful The rooms felt extremely bare, somewhat stark. The toiletries were really minimal, something more than two bars of industrial soap slivers and two tubes of combined shampoo/condition would be nice.
Yes we had a jacuzzi tub in our room and when we went to use it the water was disgusting brown and dirty
I enjoyed the cornhole game and the location...very near town. Staff was nice! Breakfast was mostly carbs-muffins, toast, oatmeal. Needed some meat, not for me but my husband likes it. Also needed some eggs. Boiled eggs are easy and it's my favorite breakfast item. They had no milk! I don't like 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee and oatmeal.
It was convenient to the wedding we were attending It was outdated and very musty smelling. The pillows were flat like pancakes and we had 4 of them.
Rooms were not big but they were cozy, functional and clean. The access to the beach and the views were wonderful. We were there offl season and it was quiet. Very good room for the price paid. Enjoyable and the location is the best. The ocean view entry door and large ocean view window opened on to the access balcony so other guest are walking by your door and window. Definitely opt for the $ upcharge for the 2nd or 3rd floor; otherwise you will be looking directly into parked cars. But the ocean and beach are 100 yards away and that is where we wanted to be.
Perfect weekend getaway just a short drive from Boston. The ideal place to stay if you have kids. Pools, beaches, resteraunts, you name it! We had a blast and will definitely be back!!!
I loved being able to walk the beach without crowding of people and my balcony view was relaxing as I was able to hear the waves all night. I didn't like the fact I had to clean the refrigerator top as the ice tray was stuck to it and coffee was all over the ice tray. The toilet was sprayed but not cleaned. I wanted so badly to relax and take a bath, but the tub had not been cleaned and there was a white film ring around it. I am also glad I am not allergic to mold, as above the tub area there was an abundance of black mold. These areas may seem fine for others, however, I really needed some "Time off" from having to clean. Maybe if the hotel was busy and the cleaning crew was limited on time, but this was off season and not busy at all.
I liked the location and I prefer this resort during the winter. We were given a closer room to the indoor pool which was nice. employees were very nice and the room was very nice and clean, very comfortable. Great value for the money spent on the room. There were too many kids, and they were highly unsupervised jumping around, splashing us in the hot tub and horseplay. Apparently they only have one legal bartender and she was on maternity leave so none of the staff could sell us liquor so we went for beers only. Our room lock broke and we were locked out when we returned from the pool and it was snowing. We waited for the maintenance to open it which was fast and then we had to switch rooms around 9:30pm. All together I liked our visit but it was better the first time.
Location, price noisy rooms, thin walls.. Not good for sleeping in.
I booked this hotel online without seeing a room first, it turned out to be a big mistake. The room was very old and a bit smelly. the sheets were stained, the comforter smelled and there was blood on the mattress, need I say more? I brought my new girlfriend there and was quite mortified. I will never go back and would never recommend this place to anybody.
The location was good. I liked that the trolley car came and picked you up right at the hotel. I also liked that they have a lot of things for the kids to do and they have BBQs. The maids were also very accommodating and friendly. I didn't like getting there and seeing that they were charging $75 a night when I had paid $116 on Kayak. As we were leaving the price went to $49. :/ I also didn't like the damp carpet. It looked and felt like someone had mopped the carpet and it never dried...
Right next to the trolley stop! There was mold in the shower head, the bathtub was cracked, a weird gojo hand soap dispenser in the tub, and it smelled like bug spray after the housekeeper cleaned each day.
Lovely room, on the river, though view overlooks parking lot and only a bit of the river. The room was well decorated and amazingly comfortable. The hotel doesn't have room service or a full breakfast, so you have to walk a mile or more for breakfast. Disappointed that the front desk wasn't staffed at night and that numerous attempts to call the front desk throughout the trip went unanswered.
The breakfast room and breakfast selection was very good. Room nice. Room had nice view, but very dirty windows. A good 25 minute walk to downtown. No coffee in rooms.
All I can think of after reading these positive reviews, is that we definitely stayed in the wrong building. We stayed at the spa building, which DID have an elevator, but the rooms were awful. They were in desperate need of updating. The carpet was disgusting and dirty, the decor was straight from the 80's, our "viewing deck" consisted of a 2' wide roof area with two aluminum fishing chairs. This place could be fantastic and they could charge three times as much for the rooms if they would simply update the furniture and install hardwood floors. A little paint wouldn't hurt, and simple maintenance would make this place top notch. Right now, though, it's pretty pathetic.
Location was beautiful. I never received a receipt emailed to me as told upon checkout.
The location on the river is beautiful. The new owners are letting the rooms fall apart and are not clean like before. The breakfast was not good and the fresh fruit had mold on the pineapple. I'm sad that we have to find a new place to stay.
Place was great - overlooking the marina- walk to town Carpet in our room could use to be changed - but the place was great
Very clean facility. Very friendly staff. Right on the beach.
There are great views from the property and easy access to the beach...it's right there. Easy to get to town (1/2 mile) and a lot of great seafood. Continental breakfast were provided...bountiful. No coffee in the room.
Cleanest hotel we have stayed in. Very family friendly!!
It was clean the staff was very helpful the location was close to town and the beach.
It is clean, quiet and close by to many places. The owner, is very friendly and informative. no enough trash can through out the facility.
I had an excellent experience.The room was very clean and quiet. My room overlooked a pretty wooded area. The hotel was a 5-10 minute walk to the beach or center of town. Staff was friendly and enthusiastically pointed out places of interest. I wish they served fresh coffee in the morning. They have tiny pots in the room but I personally don't like drinking from something that spends its life in the bathroom. For this price this seems like an easy fix.
Walking distance to the beach The color on the tv was going in and out and the remote didn't work. They did take $20 off our stay for the inconvenience. The carpet cleaner smelled soooo strong it was hard to get used to
A very pleasent find. Nice, clean comfortable room. Designed to allow good privacy. What a wonderful view from our room.
The hotel is in an excellent location We would've preferred to be in the main hotel rather than an annexe
The inn was very clean and it was very quiet. The breakfast area was very nice and offered a nice selection of pastries and cereal. You could also get waffles which were nice. It just needs some updating but other than that it was great.
Hotel very handy for the town and staff very helpful.Room was comfortable and clean
It was very convenient to shopping, dining, whale watching, and other events. We were able to walk to almost everything. The continental breakfast was a little "better" than just continental, offering hot waffles as well as bagels, muffins, cereal, and fruit. We had a double queen room which was great except that the bathroom was very, very small. It appeared they gave up bathroom space to put in 2 queen size beds.
Convenient location a small dreary room not as represented by the hotel. The premium king room had two queen beds and hotel was overbooked
Excellent breakfast. Kindness of the staff. Charming village.
Friendliness of staff. Comfortable common spaces (breakfast room, lobby). Excellent breakfast (included in room price). No.
nothing room were very dark
great proximity to the action dated decor
The King's Port Inn was a convenient place for us to stay whilst we explored Kennebunkport - we were easily able to walk into the town for a meal in the evening.
Very quiet yet close to all activities
Reception was friendly and helpful and provided good recommendations and directions in to Kennebunk Port as well as a good place to eat near the hotel. The room was spacious and clean.
I was pleasantly surprised by the big room, and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on at a hotel. I ll be back for sure! Perfect experience overall.
The friendliness of your staff. They were very knowledgable about the area and provided a detailed map of points of interest, along with directions on how to get there.
Very friendly, helpful and informative staff gave us advice on where to eat, places of interest. Complementary use of telephone was very welcome tea and coffee making facillities in the room would have been an advantage
Breakfast was the usual American carb fest.
The owners were very accommodating to us..The hotel was very clean.the area was great! We will definitely be back in the near future. Room 36 There wasn't any thing to complain about.
This is a little family owned hotel, that is nothing terribly fancy, but is clean and friendly. They have a pool that the kids a few rooms over seemed to love. It was relatively inexpensive but we could quickly get to Kennebunkport and Kennebunk to enjoy our days.
Clear room, nice pool area Uncomfortable bed, the sink was pulling away from the wall, staff was a little abrasive
Mr. Charles R. Haeberle, General Manager of the Hotel, gave us all the information about the region from the tourist attractions as well as the gastronomic tour. Your information was extremely valuable in making our stay at The Lodge at Kennebunk very fruitful. The breakfast is also very good. We have no complaints.
Really clean, friendly, easy access. Will definitely be back to stay again. I would recommend it if you are looking for a place to stay. Our queen bed was either worn or really soft/cheap, made us roll to the center. Slept better in the full bed but was obviously smaller.
Nice staff, decent breakfast, big bed--what more could you want from an off-the-highway motel? It's my go-to place in Kennebunk.
Will stay again in our future Maine trips. Loved the location, Everything was on route 1. The hotel is right off route 1.
Nothing Rented out for pool parties, insanley loud, because it is so inexpensive, it brought all sorts of crowds there for hotel parties and just Not family friendly environment. Horrible stay
The control entail breakfast was really good, and the staff were very friendly! The rooms were modern looking and very comfortable! The walls were slightly thin, but there were no disturbances to prevent from sleeping, the TV in our room didn't work but we were too tired to care
Cookies at night,room was clean Could hear people in room next they were up all night,i didn't sleep at all,left hotel at6am.
Location, helpful staff and comfortable room. No.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I enjoyed the glider rocking chairs, the spacious room, quietness and the porch. The grounds were very lovely. Real cups, real glasses. Great place to stay. N/A
This is like an old fashioned motel: solid, clean, they have thought of everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.Best? The garden behind the motel and our little balcony. No, we really liked it.
Location was nice and place was clean Almost no Internet access
Very clean and pretty cozy. Our room was at the end and the wifi did not work at all.
Rooms were immaculately clean, comfortable - wonderful experience! Nothing to speak of.
Quaint. Nice, relaxing area out back. No
Extremely clean. Friendly staff. Nicely landscaped back yard. Nothing.
Clean, comfortable and adequate for a motel. Get a room on the back side where there is grass, a stream, BBQ, chairs and gazebos and is off the road. Hair dryer was broken and no one to fix it. Clerk let me use one in another unoccupied room, which was good, but the hairdryer was not repaired during our 2 day stay.
The staff was great as was the location. I enjoyed sitting in the gazebo.The room was clean. I would go back there again. The air conditioner froze and didn't work. It was too warm in the room.
Owners and staff were great. They accommodated any request without any hesitation. Price was right. Very quiet and peaceful location.
