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

The owners are friendly and very helpful, my wife needed new heels on her boots and Paula took them in the morning and returned them that evening repaired, brilliant! The rooms are very clean and tidy with fridge, microwave, coffee maker and tv. It's a pleasant stroll to Dock Square. President Bush's summer home in just up the road. Very... More

We have stayed at the Fontenay during previous visits to Kennebunkport. This time we returned with 6 friends and we booked 4 of the 8 rooms for one night. The Fontenay does not change -- and that is a good thing. Clean, comfortable, quiet and a real value given other lodging options thereabouts. Plus it is very close to one... More

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
