Just used to shower and sleep while at the beach. 30-40 minutes from OOB, York, and Wells. Good location, continental breakfast was convenient, rooms were fine and pretty clean. Shower takes a while to warm up in the morning. I took my first shower completely cold, so let it run a few minutes first!
the view was nice the service was good rooms clean decent comp breakfast had to climb open outside stairs to get to room
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.
the room and river scenery
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.
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 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
Check-In was at 3:00pm and we were not able to get into our rooms until almost 4:00pm
Loved our stay! The view was beautiful from our room. Really enjoyed the breakfast too. Not your typical continental breakfast. We'll be back!
Staff was very polite Room was a little stuffy, AC was very loud
Its comfortable, quiet, even the grounds are well lit ! Nothing.
The hotel was right down the road from everything! The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were fine, very comfortable beds! No complaints!
It was quaint The shower ceiling was very sharply angled in my room
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
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
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.
It was a good location at a good price with nice, friendly people running the place.
Poor breakfast, hotel style motel, old bed, expensive price, picture false the condition of the hotel. not happy. two stars max
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.
The rooms are very small
Yes we had a jacuzzi tub in our room and when we went to use it the water was disgusting brown and dirty
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Beautiful and spacious room with an incredibly comfortable bed! The pool and hot tub was great too! Nothing
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.
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
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.
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
There was a nice Continental Breakfast supplied for free. Too far from downtown area (have to drive; not a quick walk).
the room was very nice, clean and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and a ceiling fan. breakfast was blah!
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.
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
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.
Location was beautiful. I never received a receipt emailed to me as told upon checkout.
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.
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.
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.
Very clean facility. Very friendly staff. Right on the beach.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Clear room, nice pool area Uncomfortable bed, the sink was pulling away from the wall, staff was a little abrasive
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
nothing room were very dark
Very quiet yet close to all activities
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
great proximity to the action dated decor
Friendliness of staff. Comfortable common spaces (breakfast room, lobby). Excellent breakfast (included in room price). No.
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.
The hotel is in an excellent location We would've preferred to be in the main hotel rather than an annexe
Excellent breakfast. Kindness of the staff. Charming village.
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
It was clean the staff was very helpful the location was close to town and the beach.
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
Cleanest hotel we have stayed in. Very family friendly!!
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.
A very pleasent find. Nice, clean comfortable room. Designed to allow good privacy. What a wonderful view from our room.
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.
Beautiful inn, nice breakfast, tea and coffee with fresh cookies in the afternoon, and then Wine and cheese and cracker in the late afternoon with beautiful views of the ocean. Beautiful bright ocean view room . Nice touches such as bottled water/ Nothing
The location on the beach, the free bicycles, the breakfast and teas and coffee all day. The bathroom was a little small but the room was comfortable. The price was a little high for post summer.
