This was my first time staying at this motel. it was clean and nice. As a single mom I traveled with two children under 10 and felt extremely safe. It was walking distance to the beach and two eateries. I would definitely come back again!

The Fontenay's location across from Colony Beach is such a perk for our family. We have easy access to the beach, Dock Square restaurants, and a couple of walk-up food establishments for great beach eats.

The motel has a beautiful yard full of flowers with a table and chairs set up overlooking the river. The room was clean and had 2 double beds, microwave, refrigerator and a coffee maker with complimentary coffee. The location is great as you can walk to the beach and downtown Kennebunkport. The owners and staff were very friendly.

My wife and I stayed at Fontenay Terrace for our 4th Anniversary, and really enjoyed it. The room was clean, and the location is great. Easy walking distance to Kennebunkport shops and restaurants, and an especially easy walk to the beach and St. Ann's Church. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great stay in Maine!

Looking to return. We stayed at The Fontenay to attend a family wedding. The weather wasn't the greatest by the Fontenay was clean, pleasant, quaint and fairly priced. Close enough to walk everywhere.

We loved the Fontenay, and wished we had more time to stay and enjoy it. We were only in Kennebunkport for one night. We stayed in Room 2, and it was a clean, spacious room. As I said, we were unable to take advantage of all it had to offer simply because we were there for such a short time.

We were looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend in Maine. The room was a good size, very clean, and had everything we needed! The price was fantastic for a room so close to the ocean! The beach within walking distance is disappointing. It's small and rocky. Dock Square was an easy walk down a beautiful street, but it is about... More

My husband and I stayed in Rm 8 (the end Unit) in early May, and found it to be quite comfortable, and convenient to everything we wanted to do. Even though Spring was a little late this year, the landscaping and early flowers were lovely. Lots of charming places outside to sit and enjoy the birds, the view of the... More
