A coastal atmosphere with a social vibe

Steps from Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine, The Tides Beach Club offers guests a modern, coastal-themed atmosphere in a historic inn, which was built in 1899. The hotel is known for its social atmosphere – with a popular happy hour in its lobby bar and seasonal events like summer yoga stargazing. Bright, contemporary accommodations feature Frette linens, marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Some rooming options have ocean views, and suites add extra living space and Jonathan Adler furnishings. When it’s time to eat, there’s an on-site, modern seafood restaurant with cocktails serving lunch and dinner. Complimentary continental breakfast is also available. And when it’s time to venture out, the hotel offers free bike rentals and beach equipment, as well as sports rentals and beachside lunch (for a fee). Recent guests have loved the hotel’s location and beach vibe, but a few of them have warned that it can get busy and noisy.

Critic Reviews



The chic coastal interior with its beige toned walls, lots of mirrors, clear-glass bar stools and dark-wood floors will have guests second guessing what state they are in—the owner/designer spends his winters in South Beach Miami.


The Tides Beach Club in Kennebunkport was fully renovated in 2011, and the vibe evolved from cozy to South Beach-esque and trendy. Two suites designed by Jonathan Adler, spectacular ocean views, and a contemporary restaurant with a sophisticated menu are just some of the upgrades that came with the renovation.
