    Historical Traveler Reviews Nonantum Resort Kennebunkport

    Favorite Seacoast Village Inn

    from

    When traveling the Maine coast, I always look forward to a four or five day stay in Kennebunkport. I have been staying at the Nonantum for the last eight of those road trips.

    Why?

    I like the village and the location, and I like the staff at the Nonantum. I prefer to stay during the week and avoid the weekend hustle and bustle.

    Our favorite place....anywhere!

    from

    I was looking to make reservations for next year at the nonantum for my family when i stumbled across this site. The Nonantum has become my familys favorite place to stay. We have a 9 year old son who recently became bound to a wheel chair. The Nonantum Staff did everything that they possibly could to accomodate us and most importantly, make Joey(our son) feel comfortable. The staff there is top notch and never make us feel bad for asking questions. They even baked a birthday cake when they heard that it was our sons birthday. Things like that just dont happen at other places. We travel all over the place, but when we are making our travel plans, my husband and I just look at eachother and say "why dont we just go to the Nonantum" and then book our room.

    They've made long time guests out of us, so you should give them a look.

    Are some Nonantum competitors submitting bad revues?

    from

    I have stayed in many of the best hotels in the states, Hawaii, Europe, Asia etc. The Nonantum relects the aura of Kennebunkport - gracious, stylish, "New England" charm. It is an extremely respected and successful hotel run by a staff that wants nothing more than to provide their guests with superb service in every respect. It also happens to be one of the best places in New England to listen live jazz. The food is wonderful and creative, as are most of the other guests and staff.

    For my money, the Nonantum is a welcome change for travelers looking for a hotel where they are treated as a valued and respected participant in helping to create a memorable and pleasureable stay. It is NOT a posh big city cookie cutter hotel - it IS polished, professional, delicious and pleasant. I've stayed on many occassions and have never had a bad experience on any level, nor have I ever witnessed any guest that didn't seem to be thoroughly and genuinely happy.

    Our Families Favorite!

    from

    I just came across the reviews on The Nonantum Resort and feel I must respond. My well traveled family has been there many times and we LOVE the Nonantum. Each year it just keeps getting better! They have the nicest staff we have ever met! The restaurant (where there is wonderful music) has great food. Our only complaint is that they aren't open in the winter! Don't miss this unique place!

    Perfect!

    from

    My husband absolutely LOVED the Nonantum! I admit I was a bit frightened by some of the reviews I read here...and considered canceling our reservations...but decided to find out for myself and just go. We stayed in the Nonantum Portside rm 524 for 5 nights...What a view! a beautiful balcony view. The sound of the ocean we could hear from the room and it was a welcomed lullabye. The staff was warm, friendly, and helpful. I didnt find the 300 dollar a night price on the room to be too expensive .... to us it was well worth it. We are going back in Dec. for the prelude to Christmas celebration. This place was such a welcomed change for us. No one bothered us,,,at first we werent sure a staff even existed...they were so quiet. The staff we did encounter were pleasant. If we had questions about the area... the front dest staff in the main house were more than helpful. This is a truly wonderful place if what u are looking for is some peace and wonderful shops to visit. The ocean views along the cost are breath taking. We were very satisfied with the Nonantum and would recommend it to anyone.

    Thiefs at large!!!!!

    from

    During our stay, we notice rooms not up to par, but the worst experience by far had to be paying $300.00 a night for this hotel, only to be robbed!! And I do not mean the room rate. Our fishing equipment was left behind in the room. When we called, they said that they had it and would send it to us which cost us $80.00. Only to find that it was forked through and anything and everything of value of stoen from it before mailing to us. I'm talking about $700.00 worth of fishing Equipment. When I called the General Manager as well as the Comptroller of the Hotel, neither would take responsibility for this or even give me their insurance Co. phone # so I can place a claim for this theft.

    If you do insist on staying at this hotel, hold on to your belongings and beware!!!!!!!! No custumor service or satisfaction at all.......

    Already booked our room for next year!!!!

    from

    The Nonantum was the best experience in hospitality that i have had in a while. Greeted everywhere i went on grounds, the staff was enthusiastic and helpful, even when they seemed busy. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the view of the river was breathtaking. Dinner was excellent and the experience overall left nothing to be desired. The only complaint of the whole experience was the darn weather. Can't win them all!!!

    Beware

    from

    If it were not for the setting, this resort would have nothing to offer. We booked a 200pp social event and the director of sales did not want to talk with us once she had our money.... 4 calls from us and so far no response from her.

    Run for your lives! The ants are coming!

    from

    At first the Nonantum seemed like a great place to get away.....until we found our room infested with what looked like flying ants! It was absolutly disgusting. I have to say that the next time we make our annual summer visit to Kennebunkport, we will not be staying at the Nonantum.

    Nonantum Resort (not)

    from

    Although this is listed as 3 diamonds in AAA and were not expecting perfection, this so-called resort only looks good on the outside as you're passing by in your car at night. Inside the rooms were poorly maintained, chipped furniture, dirty carpet and an air conditioner that sounded like a jet taking off. So don't be fooled by the word "Resort" because it's far from that....

    And now from my girlfriend: Motel 6.

    "Take a wide berth when you turn left" A nice lie in until 8.30am was shattered by the banging of doors. It seems that to increase the diversity of Boston, the hotel we were staying in had invited half the population of china to stay! Yay! And they were all jet-lagged and awake really early! Yay! The first thing we did was pick up our car from the underground car park. The satnav wasn't syncing because we're underground, right? It'll ...

    ... all written in my mind. But really, they just keep selling parking passes to anyone and there is no limit on how many are sold. They could sell 10,000 when in actuality there are only 200 spots! We did manage to find a spot, sort of. It’s all a matter of interpretation. You're not allowed to park on the bridge. But where does the bridge REALLY start?. Is it where the fence starts? Where ...

    ... s summer home at Walker Point. This property has been in the Bush (Walker) family for years but security was amped up when Bush became president. A separate house was built on the property to accommodate the security personnel. It is on a small peninsula and totally visible from the public coastal road so we could get a good view from the slowly moving bus - no stopping is allowed opposite the property. The return trip to Boston along the highway was a much quicker ride - back by ...
