We stayed in room 27 which faces the hotel across the street, but also has a view of the ocean. I was looking for a place that was not two expensive during the off season. The room was basic & a bit small, but very cozy & clean. The staff was super nice at check in. It is directly across...

My husband and I had never been to Hampton Beach. I read the reviews until my head hurt and decided on the Kentville. We were looking for a terrific deck, great views and easy access to all there was to offer. We were not disappointed. Keep in mind this building is a piece of history. Small bathrooms and slanted floors...

We stayed here twice this year with our 3 year old daughter. When comparing this to the other places on the strip, it's the best up there. Yes the room is average and the bathroom is outdated but so isn't the other well overpriced places to stay nearby. The big competitor next door is ridiculous with their prices and staying...

Having stayed at a nearby competitor's hotel in years past, we always admired the grandeur of the Kentville. I granted my husband his wish to stay there this year and we will never return! Our room was tiny, the ability for both of us to fit in the bathroom at once was impossible (we are average sized people). Just enough...

The place is an absolute dump! Carpet black with dirt, bathroom mold, whole room smells like pee...completely disgusting! The entire hotel needs to be gutted and overhauled. The only sliver of anything good....is that it's on the beach. Unfortunately everything else will gross you out!
