Old fort building was dark and gloomy. The pool was filthy and not maintained. Disappointing because we made an effort to spend the day there and it was horrible.

Sst Among the Mansions

Posted Aug 25, 2015
Pros: Staff, people we met, food, large room, good amenities (pool, shuttle, snacks during the day)
Location: Walking, jogging, biking, swimming, shopping, restaurants, beaches
The Cape Arundel sits on a wonderful spot with views of the ocean and the Bush compound at Walker's point. The Old Fort Inn where we stayed is a short walk or golf cart ride away. The room, second floor, was spacious and included a fireplace. Breakfast each day overlooking the ocean at the Cape Arundel was excellent as was our dinner. The staff are extremely accommodating and make every effort to please their guests. There is a paved sidewalk along the coast for walks, jogs and bike rides and a walk into Kennebunk takes about 15 minutes with shops and restaurants along the way. There is a nightly shuttle that runs from 5PM to 10:30 PM which was very convenient and always on time. The homes near the Arundel are out of a movie - breathtaking to look at. The Arundel attracts very nice people, more couples than families and we would stay again without reservations. Great spot to tour Maine or just enjoy the surrounding Kennebunkport area. The people we met and the staff really make the place special. Maine has a certain hospitality that you find in all the staff at all of the restaurants and shops which makes each experience special.

Not to my liking

Posted Aug 22, 2015
Pros: The bed was comfortable. A nice breakfast was included. All staff were very nice.
Cons: Clean it up, brighten the rooms.
Location: It's an ocean town in Maine.
The address was on Ocean Ave in Kennebunkport but when we arrived, we were told that it was a different location. This was made not clear when I booked by phone. The hallway carpet looked worn & dirty. The room was dark with poor lighting & carpet was buckled. The window air conditioner was noisy. The bed was very comfortable & the heated bathroom floor tiles nice but overall not good value for the amount paid. I do not recommend this hotel. There are many hotels in this area, I will not stay in this one if I return to this location.

Be careful

Posted May 29, 2015
Pros: Main property has great views and good breakfast.
Cons: A little old.
Location: Its close to the village of Kennebunport but not really walkable there.
Be careful when booking this property. The main part of the hotel is right on the ocean with beautiful views and this is what is shown in all photos of the property. However, they also have a second part of the property (they call it a "sister property") that isn't disclosed when booking. This secondary location is back in the woods behind the main location. Its older and has no views whatsoever. And you have to go back to the main property for breakfast. This wouldn't be a huge deal if they actually presented the property this way and disclosed this at the time of booking. Seemed like a bait and switch.

beautifull location and friendly staff

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Cons: noise from the laundry facility can be tiresome at some times, we were staying at the Carriage House.
Location is amongst the best in the region, overlooks President Bush summer retreat. View from the Ocean restaurant is just gorgeous. We will definitely go back

Great Gatsby in Maine

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Cons: The only thing that could have been improved would be a better quality bike for guest use.
We were upgraded to a beautiful suite in the carriage house without asking. The breakfast was fantastic, totally included with very upscale choices. The porch is extremely wonderful facing the coastal waters and the Bush compound in the distance. Heated pool, pool table, shuttle to town in the evening. It was all very well done!

Endroit merveilleux.

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Tout est tres bien mais j'aimerais avoir une chambre au batiment adjacent au rez de chaussé avec vue sur la mer mais a ce prix ce n'est. pas possible
Cons: très bon rapport qualité prix...Nous sommes très satisfait.
Location: Pour marcher c'est agréable mais pour les restos et boutiques il faut prendre l'auto
La chambre est dans un pavillon derrière,au 2ieme étage sans ascenseur mais c'est le seul désagrement...merveilleuse chambre,très propre et assez luxueuse. La salle a manger de haute gamme et la vue sur la mer...Petit déjeuner excellent.Souper très bien mais dispendieux. Personnel très gentil.
