My husband and I have long wanted to kayak at Kennebunkport and the weather and waves co-operated recently, allowing us to have a wonderful paddle on the river and for a little way along the coast. What made it extra special was to be able to stay at the charming Fontenay Terrace Motel.It is rather quaint and reasonably priced for... More

WOW !! What a value compared to others in the area. This was the last leg of our week long tour of Maine. This small hotel is truly a diamond in the rough. Very clean and the king size bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in. Very satisfied during our three night stay. If we are ever... More

We stopped there on our way back form Bar Harbor. It was just what we needed, a rest from our long ride back to Ct. on the motorcycle. The price was very reasonable for everything they provide, Location, comfortable bed, Clean room and friendly people. We will be back on our next ride through Kennebunkport.

I never stayed at a motel style hotel and admit I was concerned to pick the right one. I booked several months ago and am sure I used the Trip Advisor ratings to help me. We were very satisfied. The place is furnished basically which we expected in this style/class. But it was clean and well maintained. The walls might... More

We lived in Kennebunk for 14 years and this is where we stay when we come back. It's clean, quiet, and very reasonable. And what a great location! Mabel's next door and the Colony Hotel up the hill. We're heading up there next weekend for a wedding. This will be the third time this summer that we have stayed there!... More

Everything about the Fontenay Terrace is wonderful. Location, especially for the fireworks on the 4th of July, rooms are large and clean, grounds are lovely and there is always a wonderful ocean breeze even on the most humid days! Convenient to walk to town to shop and eat or down Ocean Ave and to the beach. Paula and David make... More

Stayed here two nights for a wedding in Kennebunkport. Very happy we did! The other recommended hotels were nearly double the price, and this one was private, had a comfortable king-size bed, and was very clean. The owners were friendly and low-key (for example they didn't have a problem with us leaving our car parked there for a few hours... More

I think, if you want to get away from the chaos of the main town area, this is a great place to take residence. The rooms are rather large while the bathrooms are a bit small, but it's not a big deal unless you need a lot of bath area. There is a microwave, coffee maker and refrig. along with... More

Clean and simple with a private feel. Well maintained but it's a trip back to the 70s. If you want a estuary view you can request room 8 for a small additional fee. Pleasant folks at the front desk that were quite helpful. Nice change from the spendy B&B's.
