Overpriced and overrated

Pros: Good location
Cons: The hotel is dated, specially the lobby, bar and restaurant. They could use some redecorating.
Location: Lots of corny "shoppes" and overpriced restaurants downtown, however a few minutes away there are some really good and simple seafood restaurants
We had expected more for the price of the room, the hotel also bills itself as a resort but really had no resort like facilities or services and the photos in their advertising leads you to believe they are on the water. Upon arrival the young lady at the front desk "upgraded" us to a room with water view, but this was just nonsense, all room with a very few exceptions had water views, if you consider water a small lagoon. It needs to be noted that the hotel only has a tiny employee operated elevator, so if one has trouble going up the stairs it may be a serious isssue. There is a second elevator at the other end of the building from the lobby but that area was under construction so that elevator was out of service.

Great 4th of July!

Pros: See comments above
Cons: updated rooms and baths
Location: Town is nearby and there is free shuttle that will take you anywhere within a five mile radius.
We have never stayed in Kennebunkport or the hotel before and we found the area beautiful and the hotel beyond our expectations. To be clear this is not the Four Seasons. This is lovely beach resort in a central location with an amazing view of the river, beautiful grounds and pool area and we enjoyed all. Great buffet breakfast, pool bar, restaurant, etc. Good service staff. We are going back next year.

Nice hotel away from hustle bustle of town

Pros: Walking distance to town, shuttle.
Cons: Rooms on 4th floor were not good. The slanted ceilings left many bumps on heads.
Location: Location and Shuttle Service was excellent. Mabel's for lunch was an awesome find. Walking distance.
Had a good time, three days plenty of time to explore Kennebunkport.

Great For All Ages

Nonantum Resort is one of the best places we've stayed. Wonderful for an adult getaway. Outstanding for children. Simply the best children's activity program we've encountered. My grandson can't wait to go back.
