I had the pleasure of staying at the Fontenay Terrace back in September while in town performing a wedding service. I met the owners, Paula & David, whom immediately felt like old friends. They carry the spirit of Aloha even up in Maine! The rooms are clean, and well kept. The grounds, gazebo, and dock area are nice little spaces... More

We enjoyed our 2 day stay. We chose room 8 for the view and weren't disappointed. Room felt a little tight and furniture and appointments were dated, but was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small but spotless. The room does need a bright light somewhere. We especially enjoyed the beautiful lawn - lunch from Portside Lobster al fresco; and... More

As always, I have enjoyed my stay here. Although it is a no frills motel, the Fontenay Terrace has everything you need...cleanliness, quietness, peacefulness, friendliness, and the perfect location, with pleasant, helpful and personable hosts. Easy walk to Kennebunkport Village, the beach within 100 yds, and a short walk to Walker's Point. I look forward to my visit every year.... More

It's difficult to find such an excellent value away from busy Route 1, let alone one within a stone's throw of an estuarine beach on Kennebunkport's geographically and architecturally sublime Ocean Avenue. All the rooms are set back from Ocean Avenue's already light traffic; noise is never an issue. Rooms with a higher number (8 is as high as it... More

This motel is in a very nice and quiet location, although it is a fair walk into Kennebunkport which we didn't mind. The rooms are dated but clean. I would recommend this motel as good value for money.

Returned to the Fontenay for our fifth year. We are never disappointed. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and so convenient to everything. Excellent value! See our review from years past. senicseeker

Overpriced. Too far from the shops in the port. Room felt tired and outdated. The refrigerator wasn't clean. Towels were rough and low quality. Skimped... one bar of soap for sink and shower. We chose this location to easily walk to and from the port area. They need a shuttle service because this was quite far.

Sorry you were disappointed. If you know much about Kennebunkport, we are one of the best values. Very few properties with rates under $200.00 to $250.00 More

I have over 33 years of hotel experience in large convention and smaller Four Diamond hotels and my wife and I loved our long weekend here. The location is perfect for the area. The price was very fair for the area. The room was very clean, large and very comfortable. The grounds were attractive and well-maintained. We lounged outside playing... More

David and Paula couldn't have done more to make me and other guests feel at home. I stayed for the month of July and then extended for another week!! The rooms are large, comfortable and spotless. The location couldn't be better with the beach and the Kennebunk River right across the street. This is really a wonderful Inn in the... More

We stayed at the Fontenay Terrace the first weekend of August . This little motel is in a perfect location, quiet and just a little bit outside of the main Kennebunkport area. We had a lovely weekend, enjoying the shopping and dining of Kennebunkport, along with long walks along Ocean Avenue. Everyone at the Fontenay is very nice. The rooms... More
