Among all the Oceanside houses and hotels this inn and cottage had the best spot. Placed across from the ocean and located between Kennybunkport and Ongonquat made site seeing easy . We rented a 2 bedroom cottage. 2 twins in one room and a full size in another . Kitchen and living room combo and 1 bathroom . The place...

This was the best place we stayed on our entire trip. The person at the desk, (don't know her name, but she was of Indian descent) was one of the friendliest and most helpful people we met in our 10 days in Maine and Massachusetts. We weren't real impressed with the people in the area until we met her. The...

The cottage we rented was perfect for three women and a baby. very comfortable and just what we needed. I would go again. The staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly. The only thing was we had to get new towels on our own but that was fine too. Thank you Americas best value inn and cottages. Deb...

Good location and comfy beds, but rooms are small, the 2 double bed room we had certainly isn't a 'suite' as described and would be cramped with 4 adults. They have been recently decorated, not that the appliances in the kitchen were moved so you can see a lovely 2 tone paint job on the walls. Comes with a cooker...

d4vealex, It seems as though you were in Room 311. This is a small 2 bedroom suite, with a small living space, kitchenette and 2 medium sized bedrooms. It is advertised as a suite because it has a living room and kitchenette, which is correctly advertised on our website and each 3rd party booking agency, such as booking.com; where you...

Stayed Oct. 7-9. Very clean,well maintained grounds. Room clean and comfortable. Had everything you would need for week-end away-small fridge, microwave,small Keurig nd hair dryer. Plenty of towels and pillows. Owner extremely friendly and capable. Will definitely be back. Don't know what William A was talking about, our room had no odor or mold.

As we're always looking for a place with kitchen, we found this wonderful inn. We stayed one night and it was a nice and cozy, very clean and comfortable. We took one cottage for our family - 2 adults and 3 kids (7, 8.5, 16). It's really good value for money :)

We went up there to get away from the grind, and found a scrupulously clean hotel room with two queen sized extra firm beds, flat screen t.v., fridge & microwave.

Needed a room Oct. 1st. Found this one on line and booked the last room available. Price was very reasonable, almost too good to be true, for this time of year. (fall foliage season). The overall appearance looked pretty decent, and the staff was very friendly. The room located on 1st floor, looked tired. When we walked in, there was...

William A, I do want to thank you for providing us with feedback on your recent stay. Our rates are always low this time of year, even being fall foliage, as we are preparing to close for the season. We are only open from mid April-October and our peak time is July and August. It looks as though you stayed...

The rooms were clean and fresh. Leaving an extra roll of toilet tissue would be nice so you do not run out. Leaving a bath mat and extra towels would be nice.
