“Very classy and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Staff was friendly and accommodating. The new renovation looks great- very tastefully done. We were disappointed that our off-season Mon-Tues stay meant that the restaurant and bar would be closed though. In season, I'm sure the bar, outdoor deck with ample seating, and restaurant are hopping. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable.

Thank you snochou for your review. We are glad to hear that you like the new look of the Inn after our renovations! I do apologize that our off season restaurant hours were not communicated to you at time of booking. We do our very best to make sure each guest knows what days and times we serve. I hope our friendly and accomodating staff were able to assist you with making reservations elsewhere. Please come visit us again in season and enjoy some of our nightly entertainment in the pub or a refreshing cocktail out on the patio!

When we arrived we were told we had been upgraded! Wish it hadn't been right next to the bar and public restroom. It was noisy until ten. Other than that. What a great place to stay. Right in the heart of the village. Rooms ate quite nice. Gas fireplace. Would stay again but not on first floor.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us. We would like
to extend our sincere apologies to you regarding the noise from the pub. We
do our very best to ensure that the entertainment in the pub is contained
only to the pub, however in this case, it obviously spilled over. With our
renovations we are still learning to live in our new space and we appreciate
learning of the noise overflow. We apologize and will endeavor to resolve
this moving forward. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your
stay and our new look and that you would return in the future. Thank you
again for the comments as we can only get better by knowing the areas of
improvement.

We had our wedding in the inn and many family members stayed he night. We had the BEST personal service throughout! We finished the evening with live music in the bar. This is a quaint New England inn with lots of history and a great restaurant, One Dock. We highly recommend.

This is the 13th year of coming to prelude and the 12th year we stayed at the Inn. We love the Inn and its central location. The staff are always friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the family suites that sleeps 6 and having stayed there before we knew the pull out couch is not comfortable so we brought our air mattresses.

Second year going to K Port at Xmas time. The whole town is so festive it puts one in a great mood. The Inn and it's staff are very helpful and not overbearing. The location is matchless. Charming and friendly and a great get away.

Room Tip: Room facing the center of town are preferable.

First time in Kennebunkport, the Inn was exactly what I had in mind. Above average decor and attention to detail with "home" feel. Daybed in room for third person. Gas fireplace puts out a lot of heat, but I missed the crackling aroma of burning wood. Two armchairs in the King room provided a comfortable place for my sister and I to have a glass a wine before dining on lobster pasta and some of the freshest ahi this far east of Honolulu at Dock One, ground floor at the Inn. Service, attentiveness, and general vibe of staff? From the desk to dining room to housekeeping—beyond 5 stars for staff. Good value. Would recommend and return.

Room Tip: Room 303 is on the street corner and, though our evening was quiet, our view was parked cars and we...

Celebrating Christmas Prelude is the best way to begin the holiday season. As it was our 15th
year or so, we very much enjoyed the Kennebunkport Inn. The rooms are very nice (we were so glad to see that "our room" had been freshly painted and new bed linens had been chosen)

The location can not be beat, once you park your car (and during Prelude weekends it is truly a major pain) you can walk to everything! I liked the breakfast but thought that there could have been more of a choice as far as the hot items. Nonetheless, its always a great time!

We will be back next year!!
