    This is a budget-conscious place to stay in Kennebunk. Very nice grounds to explore. Very helpful staff, with good restaurant recommendations. Room was nothing special but had all the necessities. Breakfast buffet generous--you could also pay $3 extra for hot entrees, but all the breads,...More

    Our room was very basic, clean and comfortable. This is truly a simple guest house. It is priced reasonably too. Not a hotel. Has the feel of a dorm or hostel. It is very close & easy to walk downtown. We enjoyed leaving the car...More

    Our group of about 16 quilters spent 3 days at the Franciscan House on a retreat. This is such a wonderful hotel within walking distance to town and the beach. We had a large, well equipped, well lighted room to use for our "quilt retreat"....More

    Great location, beautiful grounds, quiet, spotless and good breakfast. The room was big with a TV, dorm refrigerator, desk and chair. A full size bathroom. Outdated decor, but very clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful with the area. A nice place to relax....More

    This is a hidden jewel. Walking distance to downtown, very quiet and beautiful grounds. The prices are very reasonable and the rooms are spotless. 1970's decor (wood paneling, etc) but overall a small sacrifice for the price.
