My family and I stay here every December for a few days. The off season price is perfect, the room is just right, the breakfast is what you would expect but the staff? AMAZING!! They go out of their way to make your stay even more enjoyable then it already is. The rooms are small, but fine for my husband...

Stayed here in June with my wife, my parents, and my in-laws for a weekend in Maine. Location in Kennebunkport was ideal for exploring the southern Maine coastline and the service was very nice, however the rooms themselves were a bit run down and the particular building we stayed in had a pervasive "fishy" odor that was present throughout the...

I am so sorry you did not totally enjoy your stay with us. Your comment about the halls and odors is a bit surprising as I had not heard that from anyone. We are upgrading our rooms a section at a time and will continue until all is completed. We just installed all LG flat screen TV's in every room....

The hotel was ok but although the room was cleaned to a reasonable standard, the condition of the carpet was stained and marked especially where you got in to the bed which a little off putting. The hallways had a stale smell and were messy. Breakfast was pretty much as you would expect fairly well equipped. The location was good...

We do have some newly completed updated rooms and are in the process of refurbishing rooms a floor at a time. I'm wondering if the refurbished rooms were all booked as you should have been given the option. I hope that next time you stay with us, you will ask for one of our updated rooms with new carpeting, linens,...

We first found their ad in a local NH paper. We were looking for a new escape that we could depend on for regular stays any time of year. We found it ! Year round, the Rhumb Line offers a comfortable, clean,tidy,relaxing, and friendly atmosphere. Rates are reasonable and always include what they say they offer. Nothing is ever "out...

The staff was very friendly during the check in, offering to help with dinner recommendations, beach outings, etc. The layout is great (center courtyard pool/bar area) for families and those who want to meet as a group at the outdoor pool or bar. However, the rooms and common areas of the property are dated and worn. Our AC could not...

or nostalgic about the interior design that went out of fashion 30, 40, may be 50 years ago. Their mini-suite would not be such a bad idea, if you travel with kids and need a fridge and microwave, but if all you need is nice and relaxing vacation that “spacious” room will not do. Windows are so dirty that you...
