God I love this place so much. I’m hesitant to even post this because as it is, it’s getting more and more booked up. My husband and I first stumbled upon The Tides 7 Summers ago on our first trip to Maine. I booked 1 night here at the end of a road trip to break up the drive

This hotel is fabulously situated on the beach at Goose Rocks. The rooms are well equipped and the restaurant is great.
However

Dear Travelling_Col: Thank you for sharing your feedback and your review on TripAdvisor. We are pleased to see you enjoyed our enviable location on Goose Rocks Beach! Our ocean view king rooms are described as having a "limited ocean view", as you are correct that there is not a direct view of the ocean from the room. We offer other accommodations with direct ocean views, like our oceanfront king accommodations and our Jonathan Adler oceanfront suites. I appreciate your feedback regarding the service in both the hotel and the restaurant. It sounds like you may not have experienced the best our team has to offer and I apologize for that. We hope to welcome you back to the Tides again next time you're in Kennebunkport! Warm regards, Emily Nelson General Manager Tides Beach Club

This is an older property with smallish rooms. Nice, sort of like a bed and breakfast.
Seemed to be fully occupied when we visited. I judge there are many repeat customers.
Just steps from the beach. A nice breakfast is included.
The restaurant and bar serve a good selection.

My husband and I loved our stay at The Tides! Quaint little Inn with direct access and views of the Atlantic Ocean. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

We would like to book but our only concern is the reviews on small rooms with nowhere to hang clothes. Any suggestions on room selection? Thanks! Looks beautiful.
Hi taec548 -- While some of our rooms are on the petite side, all do offer clothing storage for our visitors. Please give us a call at the hotel and we would be happy to assist in securing the right room for your beach vacation!

Can we bring our pet an older small sized declawed cat that is quiet and sleeps most of day and does not shed any hair?
Hello! I do apologize for the delayed response! Unfortunately, our property is not pet friendly! Please us know if we can be of any further assistance! The Team at TBC

Hello! I was reading about the Tides Beach Club and just wanted to ask a question. It sounds like children can stay at the hotel, but when I tried online booking and when I read the site it says only 2 adults per room. It appears they're closed right now and I'm looking at summer, so thought I'd ask the question. We have one son and one room works just fine for us on vacation. : ) Thanks! Tracy
When we stayed children were there with their parents. I think it is geared more toward adults though.

How baby friendly is this place? Good idea/bad idea?
It depends. I agree that the staff would go out of their way to help you. I also agree with bob that given how much of a social scene The Tides is, and how noisy it is, it might be a problem if your baby is a light sleeper. It is near the beach and very comfortable so it is kind of a toss up. Also, there are no elevators so you have to haul the baby and baby stuff up and down the stairs.

"no elevators, so if you have trouble with stairs, may want to request first level"
"We could barely see the ocean from our oceanview room. You need to be in the rooms directly over the front porch for the best ocean views."
"If you don't like climbing stairs, choose a room on the 2nd floor because I didn't see an elevator."
"There is a handicap room on the first floor"
"the two ocean front suites are well worth the extra charge"
