Located at the scenic Ocean Ave. this small motel is a short drive and a 20 min. walk from the centre of town. The room with King Size bed looked newly decorated and was need and spacious - quite cozy for a motel actually. And the rates makes it very good value. The staff is both friendly and helpful. At...

August is high season in Maine, and since we were only going to be in Kennebunkport for two days and one night, we didn't want to spend a fortune on lodging. Lucky for us we found the Fontenay Terrace while searching online. This "motel" has large, clean rooms that are airy and bright. The property is gorgeous...a mini botanical garden... More

We stayed here at the suggestion of friends who have a house in Cape Porpoise. We were attending a wedding at the Colony which is right next door. Delightful find and I would return. Small, neat, clean, nice location, and lovely people plus the added attraction of having some resident cats who were very attractive.

We stayed at the Fontenay Terrace Motel for 2 nights. It was a wonderful place. It's in a great location. Close to downtown about a mile easy walk. You can also walk up to Walker's Point too. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.

The closeness to the other 5 rooms that were occupied by our family members made this a very enjoyable gathering for a Saturday wedding in St.Ann's Church in Kennebunkport. We were very close to everything - other hotels and restaurants.

This is one of the few hotels that I have stayed in, where I was happy to spend time in my room. We were lucky enough to get #8, which faced a lovely waterway. We had a little table in front of the window where we could eat breakfast, or go out the door to our little garden area with... More

Fontenay is exactly what it seems to be - clean, comfortable, virtually on the beach (which their web site does not say!). Nice to find a fridge in the room, and a real pleasure to be in such a small facility (8 rooms) - nothing anonymous or corporate here! One small negative - nowhere to have breakfast within close walking... More
