My husband and I were so dissatisfied with the Kennebunk Inn we left after seeing our room. The room was tiny, some of the furniture in the Inn had peeling paint and there was a musty order. The Inn was not was a dump! Even knowing our money would not be refunded, we left and found another motel. We simply could not stay there! We were especially upset because the only reason we drove to Kennebunk was to stay there and eat in their restaurant. The restaurant was closed on Sunday and Monday so no meal ( that’s my fault for not reading carefully) the Inn was a dump (that’s Travelocity’s fault for recommending it).

Thank you for taking an interest in our restaurant. I am sorry you did not realize our restaurant was closed Sunday and Monday, we try very hard to have that information up to date and accurate on all the websites that advertise our business. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, our staff and owners have worked tirelessly over 17 years investing their lives and money into this building. We all take great pride in our jobs in the hospitality world and your "dump" review is not very helpful for future guests.

When I asked about breakfast spots, no one recommended a very nice place right on the next block. Found it on my last morning. Would have liked pastries offered with the coffee. Would have saved me a lot of time in the morning

Super cute historical hotel

We were only in Kennebunk for the evening and I wish we could have stayed longer! This hotel was super cute and in a good location. Clean and comfortable.

Beautiful old Inn

Pros: It is quaint and cozy.
Cons: Bathrooms are very small.
Location: The inn is on Main Street with shops and restaurants, a weekend Farmers' Market next door and a short ride to Kennebunk Beach.
Our stay at the Inn was very pleasant. Don't expect the luxury of a Hilton or Hyatt. The rooms are sparce but clean and comfortable. The sitting area on the second floor is a great place to meet instead of cramming into someone's room.. The food at the restaurant is delicious ( the chef is a "chopped" champion) and the bar is a nice gathering place. There is an outside courtyard to relax in weather permitting Behind the inn is a wonderful pastry shop for breakfast. I would highly recommend this inn for a quaint New England experience.

Nothing Quaint Here

I had a difficult time finding a hotel over the Labor Day weekend that would book for just one night (most had a two night minimum) and that is how we ended up at the Kennebunk Inn. When we arrived, we were led up two steep sets of stairs to a tiny room on the third floor. The room was terrible. It even had a free-standing room air conditioner taking up a corner of the tiny space. The worst part of the room was the bathroom. It had a very old and dirty looking floor with a small shower stall and the smallest sink I've ever seen. The other endearing feature was the sprinkler pipe that ran along the bathroom and bedroom ceiling. This poor little inn would need a lot of love and remodeling to make it somewhere I would want to stay. If our stay had been for more than one night, I would have handed in my key and gone elsewhere. We would have been much better off in a National chain hotel.

Attractive older renovated hotel

Pleasant and helpful staff. Older hotel, thus no refrigerator or coffee pot in room and creaky floors.  My husband and I are early risers so enjoy the room coffee pot idea.  Hotel restaurant was not open while we were here. Digital TV and great King size bed.  Wifi did not work in room, but did in nearby lobby on 2nd floor.

Mixed Review #2

I stayed at the Inn in November 2008. There were no amenities that you would expect to find at an Inn---no coffee/teas, etc and cookies set out at night. No continental breakfast in the AM. They offered coffee, tea, or milk in the AM only. Also, when I checked out, the bill was more than the online agency guaranteed. Since I had read the previous reviews, I was aware that they might do this. The Inn-keeper told me that it was a gratuity for their staff. I simply told her that I would prefer to pay the guaranteed rate and she removed it from my bill. (I did not have any staff do anything for me--so why should I pay a blanket gratuity). The bed was very comfortable--I had read in their Bio, which they have in each room, that they had recently purchased nice pillow top mattresses. They are quite proud of themselves as their bio goes on and on about their pedigrees---but good service is lacking. Also, very limited channels on TV---and when the neighbor's alarm clock went off at 5AM, it woke me---he kept pushing the snooze button (reminded me of our kids). :) But I was up!! So just remember that when you are at an Inn---its like being at home--except nothing is free here---no snacks, no breakfast---but you get added charges.
