It's nice to feel right at home while vacationing! This property is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owners are often seen chatting with guests-they are so friendly and really care about their property and their guests. The location is perfect! I'll never stay anywhere else in Hampton Beach!

We enjoyed our recent stay at one of the Mainsail cottages (and we did get an extra room for one night that was beautifully renovated and clean!). We can't say enough good things about the resort...clean, friendly and accommodating staff (owners on site and super friendly, including Clarence the resident dog), good location and a pool!!! The cottages are super...

Well I booked the room months in advance for an overnight stay to see a show at Casino for the first time. I was really expecting a "Motel 6" experience just a place to crash for a night. Well it was far from that! Our room was beautiful the furniture alone made a real statement and it was just remodeled,...

My husband and I stayed at the Mainsail for Memorial Day weekend. We were in town to see a show at the Casino Ballroom and the Mainsail, although was not on the main road in town, was in a perfect location. The beach was just a block a away, but we didn't have the crowds from the main road. The...

Ballston Lake, NY
Reviewed 17 February 2016

Enjoyed two night in hotel room after spending a week in a cottage a few years back. New ownership has made many improvements. Spacious room with basic amenities including small fridge, microwave and sink. Love the close proximity to beach, main shopping and dining strip and even a water slide. Staff are on premises working hard all day long.

Nice rooms, great staff. Wi-Fi could be a little better but we were on the beach so who cares....only a short walk to the Boardwalk and Beach. There is also several cottages to rent for a larger group. Will be back......

We had a fantastic time and the staff was so friendly. The rooms were very clean and the location was nice. We also love having the pool to relax at when we are done with the beach. Our only bad complaint was that we had another family upstairs with children and the children were running so early in the morning,...

We were pleased with our stay at the Mainsail. The room was nice and the location was very convenient to the beach. Kara was very friendly and it was clear that their focus is to maintain and improve the motel. In contrast, many motels in beach areas, especially Hampton Beach, become run-down and poorly maintained. Each room has a designated...
