Fodor's Expert Review The Seaside

80 Beach Ave., Kennebunk, Maine, 04043, USA

This handsome seaside property has been in the hands of the Severance family since 1667. Modern motel units, all with sliding-glass doors that open onto private decks or patios (half with ocean views), are great for families. The inn supplies beach chairs on a first-come, first-served basis, which you can take to nearby Gooch's Beach; step into the outdoor shower to wash off the salt and the sand.

PROS

  • great ocean views from upper-floor rooms
  • tasty breakfast
  • rates drop significantly in winter

CONS

  • motel-style rooms
  • not an in-town location
