Seaside Inn KennebunkportKennebunk Hotels And Motels

 

Even seasonal visitors to the Kennebunks believe they are vacationing in Kennebunkport when in fact, they are in Kennebunk. Indeed, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are two famous seaside towns often regarded as synonymous. While Kennebunkport gets more accolades, it's Kennebunk that has the most beaches, and there are a plethora of great lodging properties and plenty of fun restaurants and shops in both downtown Kennebunk and Lower Village just across the Kennebunk River from the more famous Kennebunkport. Lodging in Kennebunk is just as varied as you'll find in the neighboring Port, from b&bs, cottage rentals, hotels and motels offering something for families and friends and couples. Some Kennebunk hotels are waterfront, or near the Kennebunk River, some are conveniently located on Route 1 or out near the turnpike.

 

Kennebunk BeachWhen staying at a hotel or motel in Kennebunk, visitors can enjoy amenities like outdoor pool areas, easy access to main highways, play areas for the kids, or gas grills for bbq and outdoor dining, some even offer waterfront locale with views of the Kennebunk River or the Ocean. For those on a vacation budget, staying in a motel or motor inn in Kennebunk is certainly a more affordable lodging option. If you are traveling with kids and larger parties, staying in a Kennebunk hotel or motel can be more accommodating than an inn or bnb.

 

Kennebunk is a family friendly town, endowed with many nearby parks and amusements, horse drawn carriage rides, blueberry picking at the Nature Conservancy Blueberry Barrens, and 3 beaches including Mother's Beach, Middle Beach and Gooch's Beach—Mother's Beach being a family favorite for its kid-friendly gentle surf and beachfront playground. The Seaside Inn is located directly on Kennebunk Beach with motel style lodging, direct beach access and an outdoor hot tub with ocean views making this a special place that has been in the same family for nine generations. You can even stay at the Franciscan Guest House on the Kennebunk River; this affordable lodge offers modest guest rooms on the monastery grounds.

 

Kayaking Kennebunk RiverThere are more options for historic hotels and modern resorts in Kennebunkport, however hotels in Kennebunk are well-located and appointed. The Grand Hotel, for example, is located just before the bridge crossing over to Kennebunkport and within walking distance to the popular shopping of Dock Square, as well as quaint shops, art galleries and restaurants within Kennebunk's Lower Village. The Lower Village is an ideal place to find lodgings with close proximity to the ocean and beach, and usually walking distance to wine bars, pubs, upscale and casual dining, and shopping. Vacationers interested in remaining close to downtown Kennebunk's shops and restaurants may also consider lodging on Rt 1, like Kennebunk Gallery Motel & Cottages where there are a plethora of antique shops, cafes, and several art galleries, and while being just a few miles from the beach.

 

If you are looking for a quieter Kennebunk atmosphere away from the hubbub of town, motels like Shorelands Guest Resort, near the Wells Wildlife Reserve on Rt 9 or the Lodge at Kennebunk on Rt 35 should suit the bill and your budget. Both are situated toward the outskirts of town away from market places, but still located on main highways.
