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.

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.
