Sadly I really wanted to give this inn a great review. I use to live in Kennebunk and have driven past this place so many times. My room was suppose to be a queen bed and NOT on the 3rd floor. Instead I got a full size bed (Room 36) and had to climb many stairs. It was exhausting for me as I am disabled due to covid. It is not a handicap accessible property at all. The room had got to be the smallest room I have ever stayed in. I am a professional reviewer and it reminded me more of a hostel. The bathroom equally small and strangely bi level. Water pressure is awful. The rest of the inn is pretty and staff is very nice. The area is downtown Kennebunk. The parking is in the back of the building and so there was a lot of walking involved, I decided to try the Resturant around 7 pm for dinner. Very short staffed. Adrian the bartender/server was awesome and for him I give 5 star service. The meal was delicious but everything took forever. I saw many upset patrons and people just leave. They could do so much better. Would I stay there again? No, to be quite honest…I would never. Would I dine there? Yes,

The Kennebunk Inn is Beautiful. All staff that I had interaction with was very knowledgeable, Friendly, and helpful with any questions our group had. There was a group of 10 women and the accommodations were wonderful for our group. The house is just what you would expect it to be. It is an old house that was renovated but not lost the old house feel. The floors, staircases, all the small details make the house really beautiful. I would recommend the Kennebunk Inn to anyone. The one thing our group enjoyed, was the big front porch with the rocking chairs. Being able to sit on the porch in the morning and have a cup of coffee without sweating was wonderful.

Very nice hotel. It may be important to note that there are 3 floors but no elevator (this was not a problem for me). Also the bathroom is a bit cramped (like I've found in many historic hotels). Again, not a problem but just something to be aware of.

I wasn’t expecting much based off previous reviews, however the cleanliness was an issue. Our bath towels were dirty when we arrived and our bed sheets has large, old wet stains on them. The staff was very nice about replacing the towels. Just feel like you could probably stay somewhere a bit nicer for a similar price.

Beautiful home and amenities were great. Only recommendation would be to add a colored stripe to the last step of each set of stairs. I missed it a couple of times during our stay. Other than that, all was great!!

Charming old inn, interesting rooms and decor definitely fit with the history of the place. I was not a fan of the unstaffed check-in when we arrived, particularly when we had been issued keys for a room that was already occupied.
