The TBC is perfectly located across the street from gorgeous Goose Rocks Beach. The staff is phenomenal, going out of their way to make sure you are taken care of and happy. It is true that some of the rooms may be on the small side, but they are beautiful, comfortable, and clean. I read one negative review, and, frankly, could not believe it. My perspective... If you are not happy here, you might not be happy anywhere. Keep up the great work TBC team.

Travel agent found us this gem! Great staff, especially Joe L. at the desk, Ben at the bar and Jen, as manager. Room 207 perfect, clean crisp great bathroom. Only negative was that the room could have used better closet space and is a tad noisy due to the a/c unit for the restaurant being next to the window. Three nights and four days of pure rest and relaxation and being catered to. Great private beach right across the street with Ian to cater to every whim. See my review of the restaurant / dining room separately. Will surely return for another visit.

Room Tip: Get the low down on the area from Joe L at the desk.

Dear Penguinitis,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We at the Tides are extremely proud of our customer service and are delighted that our actions have paid off. We spent this past winter renovating the Inn and had to be extremely creative due to the age of the building, so we understand your frustration with the lack of closet space in the room. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay, the food and the staff and look forward to your future visits!

Best,
Jen

My wife and I, along with two close friends, recently experienced three very enjoyable days at the Tides Beach Club. The location on Goose Rocks Beach with its easy acccess to one of Maine's premier beaches cannot be topped. The Inn itself exhibits a casual elegance that is upscale yet not pretentious. The wide porch with comfortable rockers and sofas invites you to sit, relax and enjoy the view. The Inn provides towels, beach lounge chairs and umbrellas with a staff member to set them up, which is very convenient, but during peak times, you may find that all lounge chairs are in use if you arrive at the beach later in the morning.

The complimentary breakfast is adequate. The lunch menu, particularly if enjoyed beachside, is high quality. The dinner selection is limited and portions are small but again the food is of high quality.

All staff members were pleasant and very helpful, regardless of the question or request.

Along with our friends, we have already booked our 2012 return trip to the Tides Beach Club. We are very much looking forward to another special visit to this "Seaside Gem".

Room Tip: The Inn has 21 rooms in 11 categories. When booking, ask for the room category and amenities. Example: small rooms don't have closets.

The staff at Tides Beach Club in Kennebunkport Maine were wonderful, warm and friendly. We rarely get to take time off, (own our own business) so we really enjoyed our stay. The Tides is pricey but the service was wonderful. Goose Rocks Beach is a lovely beach. The food was excellent, the lobby was very pretty, relaxing and lively. A great service is the beach chairs and umbrellas already set up. Our room was small but very pretty. We look forward to coming back next year.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights and four days. We would definitely return. Although the rooms were a bit small for our liking, the lobby area and staff more than made up for the size.

The hotel was always spotless and the staff was always there when you needed something. The highlight of the hotel is definitely the beach. There was a beach attendendent who was there to set up chairs for you and bring you cold water and towels. They would even set up large umbrellas and provide lunch service from the restaraunt.

If you are looking for a quiet, family friendly luxurious new England getaway, I would highly suggest this hotel.
