This place was only 99.99 a night, and had ocean views. Staff was pleasant. The rooms are tidy and clean but nor modern or big. You get bathroom and beds no extra space for line dancing. This is a good find at a great price. It's not 5 star but what it is is clean value on comfortable beds

We stay here every Labor Day weekend for 3 nights and love it. We always get the same room up on 3rd floor and can see the Beach for miles. We can sit on on the deck and enjoy it just as much as going to the Beach for the day...The place is older but very clean and the cliental...

This was the 3rd time this summer I stayed at the Kentville on the ocean, all my stays have been enjoyable, the staff is very friendly, coffee is ready & free early in the lobby. Nothing fancy but clean and reasonable. If you get a chance stay on the top floor #6, the view is wonderful, so close, watched the...

Again, a fabulous stay and that's because the Staff is so gracious.... We will prob never stay anywhere else . Can't get closer to action while still feeling relaxed and happy on deck... Fireworks are just an added bonus ! Looking forward to going next year already ...

Great price! Very nice rooms. Clean, and it smelt fresh, the air conditioning and cable T.V worked great. The beds and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The service from everyone was delightful. Very accommodating! Our 2 Grandsons, (12 and 16) gave it a thumbs up! Our whole party agreed that we will be staying here in the future!

We had a great time as usual at the Kentville. (We've been coming for about 5 years.) We rent the second floor room with the balcony view facing the ocean. It is Sooo pretty when the sun comes up. For convenience and a view, you can't beat this place. Our party ranges from age 2-72 and it is pretty comfortable...

Needed a definite update but we could sit & watch the ocean & relax. Seems to be run by college girls who were very nice. Seemed overpriced, but again, we were on the ocean. Probably would not stay again unless it had a major renovation. Floor seemed to run downhill & we were on the third floor with only steep...

Loved the Kentville. Always wanted to stay here seeing it as we drove past. Finally made our one night stay with a Monkees concert downtown! So much character and charm to this hotel. Our room was very clean with AC and ocean view. Staff at the desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Coffee in the am was delicious. Parking included...

I stayed here for the first time 4th of July weekend and loved it! The front desk staff made check-in and check-out quick and easy. I stayed on the second floor facing the Ashworth and was very impressed with the view. Best part about my vacation. I enjoyed my coffee, courtesy of the hotel, every morning sitting on my balcony....

I just spent 4 nights at the Kentville. The young ladies at the front desk were very nice. I was happy to get the room location I had requested. I was surprised when she informed me the gravel parking lot next to the hotel does not have reserved spaces for the hotel. They rent them out to the public. At...
