Mainsail Motel & Cottages

Reviewed 29 June 2014

Called to book an overnight during peak season with hardly any cell reception and Kara was extremely accommodating and sweet. Told me not to worry and to call back when I could secure the room with a credit card though she still held it for us. Next day husband took vehicle to play golf and kids and I were without a car and she even moved a room around so that we could checkout later and enjoy the pool in the morning. Dave was so nice as well offering to hold an extra bag for me and even charge my cell phone when my battery died. The Mainsail is in heart of Hampton Beach. Walking distance to the beach,restaurants, shops and arcades. So perfect for after a great day at the beach!
It is neat, clean very well kept and the landscaping is attractive as well. The pool is awesome also. At night we felt very safe as a nice helpful person even told me I had left my DVD player on in in the car. They take the extra step to ensure their guests are happy. I would recommend the Mainsail Motel and Cottages as a vacation destination.

My family has been staying at the Mainsail for over 20 years. When we heard that Chet and Diane sold we were concerned if the place would not be the same. Kara and Dan, the new owners, have breathed new life into the hotel. They painted the hotel and they have started renovating the cottages. After seeing the fresh new look of the cottages my husband and I booked one for a week in July. They have new flooring, they replaced the dark paneling with fresh paint walls and updated artwork. They have have landscape the grounds with beautiful flowers and everywhere you look there are maintenance people tending to the grounds and building. Best of all the new owners are committed to keeping a "family resort" and not turn the property into condo's. We highly recommend the Mainsail and the new owners.

Room Tip: If you are thinking about staying in a cottage treat yourself to the newly renovated buildings. Well...

Have stayed here in the past and stayed again last weekend. The new ownership is great, as are the new improvements! The hotel overall seems clean, well maintained and accommodating. I appreciate the location, easy to get in/out by car and beat the traffic, easy to walk to all of the bars, restaurants, shops etc on the strip, but it is on the back strip so it isn't as loud as some of the hotels up front can be. Parking and pool onsite is a huge bonus! Overall, a good value for the money. Excited to see what the new owners do over the next few years! Would highly recommend

Room Tip: They have cottage units too, for bigger groups!

The Mainsail Motel and cottages is located right in the heart of Hampton Beach. Walking distance to the beach,restaurants, shops and arcades.
It is neat, clean very well kept. The cottages have been newly painted and decorated andupdated. They are perfect for your next family vacation.
it was nice sitting on the porch at night after a day at the beach.
The pool is awesome it was nice coming back from the beach and taking a dip and even swimming at night.
The new oweners are very friendly and accomodating. They live on property and available if needed.
