We stayed at the Cape Porpoise while on our way to Lubec Maine. It is less then 10 minutes from the center of Kennebunkport, situated on a dry, quiet road. This is a plain jane looking motel, and clearly the buildings were not made with amenities in mind, but the managers definitely put effort into making it a comfortable place... More

I attended a wedding and stayed at this motel which was close to the church and reception. The motel has 7 rooms and a cottage. It looks rundown on the outside but once you stepped into the room it was very clean and well taken care of. The bed was excellent. I would stay at this motel again as the... More

Wonderful property, great owners, VERY clean unit. We stayed in the one bedroom unit that allowed dogs. It was quite dated and very small, but spotless. Even though it was small, the unit had everything needed for a very nice stay. Restaurants, convenience stores arei within walking distance, along with great places to walk a dog. My dog is a...

this spot is perfect for unusual lengths of stay ie. very short, or something not simply in weeks (which is what you need to rent an ordinary cottage); its also very friendly and clean and well located; from here you can cycle quite a ways in any direction ... eg. to the beach or into Kennebunkport, or further ... v.easily...

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Cape Porpoise Motel. Having been to the Kennebunks before, and never having explored Cape Porpoise, this was the perfect home base. Close to everything! Clean, quiet, and had all the amenities we could need. And the hosts and their pets are lovely! This is our new go-to place for our stays any where... More

We've stayed at this simple, clean, nicely kept motel several times, and were always impressed by the friendly and personal touch that John and Debra provide. Despite being returning guests who always left our room in good shape, we were surprised to learn this year that our dog was not welcome. We had made reservations for later in the summer... More

As the owner John says this is the quiet side of Kennebunkport - and this is not to complain about. The home baked goodies at breakfast are delicious. It is not fancy but spotlessly clean. The Cape Porpoise Chowder House at the end of the pier is very good for lobster and other shell fish as recommended by John

Right in the heart of Cape Porpoise...a must stay..not overly fancy but super clean and the treatment is... More

This is an excellent mom and pop coastal motel. Basic, clean accommodations with an assortment of rooms within minutes of area beaches lighthouses, lobster shacks, restaurants and the Kennebunk region. John, the most personable owner of this nine unit establishment, can not do enough to make your stay enjoyable. We visited just before Memorial Day to avoid the crowds but... More
