Kennebunk Inn
Ranked #10 of 14 Kennebunk B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We stayed here in July for one night as we made our way further up into Maine. We wanted to stay in Kennebunkport, but it was hard to find hotels in the area that don't have 2 night minimums, so this was a plus. The Inn is a very old Inn, and is in need of an update. The rooms are small, and the bathrooms even smaller. The bathrooms are very out-dated, and need a renovation. They have the old claw foot tubs that you have to step into, with a shower curtain that was a little moldy. The shower head was at an odd angle that would shoot horizontally into your face, and it couldn't be adjusted. The sink was really tiny. The beds were comfortable. We dined at the restaurant and although the food was good, it was all very heavy. The lobster pot pie, which is what they are known for, is good but not great. I think for a quick stopover, it's an ok place to stay. I'm not sure I would want to stay there much longer than 1 night.

We stayed here after a wedding at the Nonantum Resort. It was a clean and well kept property with comfortable beds. We liked it because they did NOT have a 2 night minimum, which is hard to come by in Kennebunk in the summer! Breakfast was not included but they did offer fresh coffee in the morning that was actually pretty good. There is no pool and it is about a 10-15 minute ride to the downtown Kennebunkport attractions.

For over $200 per night, and nothing included except coffee or juice, and a not so warm and fuzzy welcome, not worth the money, not very welcoming or accomodating, no management on hand in the wee hours of the night in case of compaints....which we had, were woken up at 1:00 am with the noise of a very roudy croud which went on until 4:00 am, on a positive note, the rooms are very clean

We dined there July 6th 2012 for your famous Lobster Pie and were very disapointed. There was 2 small pieces of Lobster, 2 pieces of potato, a few kernels of corn, and a couple of peas,all for 19.50 per person. I realize this is an appetizer but i could have had a Lobster pie any where with more in it than that. I don't know if it was because we were there at 4:00 on a friday and it was to early and you weren't ready for us or what. I would not recomend this to anyone especialy after all the hype about how wonderful the pie is.

Received incorrect info when booking. When we compalined, clerk infomred us that WE had made a mistake. Not informed until arrival that room was 20+ steps - no elevator. Front desk clerk rude, unhelpful. We ended up leaving and going elsewhere - and we were VERY glad that we did.

Not a great place to stay, wrongly indicates that breakfast is available - it isn't..... merely a nasty cup of watery coffee. Felt like we were short changed following our recent stay here and this left an unpleasant feeling.

These is nothing to see in Kennebunk - keep driving !!

Restaurant open in the evening but overpriced and not great.

Suspect many people are getting these two hotels confused.

Absolutlely average and would not reccommend.

Room Tip: Dont bother staying here

I got the two confused and there is no comparison between Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Some of these posted reviews are actually for the Kennebunkport Inn which is several miles away. When we checked in at the Kennebunk Inn, I was shocked. I told the clerk I was in the wrong place, but she refused to refund my money so we had to spend one night. It was dreadful. The Inn is very very old. We don't mind old and elegant but this place has not been updated. It isn't even Victorian. It is just old with old mismatched furniture, exposed pipes in the ceilings, along the walls, slanting floors. The rooms are tiny and very very shabby. The only plus was the clean comfortable bed. There were 3 locks on our door and not sure why because the door was so thin anyone could push it down. There were young people coming and going without luggage and I think part of the inn may be used as a boarding house. The high rated restaurant on the main floor is closed Sun & Mon so we didn't get to try it. The Wi-Fi service wouldn't work unless we took our computer down to the office. There is nothing to do in that part of Kennebunk! You can drive 10-15 minutes to the newer, nicer part of Kennebunk that is connected to the delightful town of Kennybunkport by a bridge. I am shocked by some of these reviews.

Room Tip: There isn't one.
