Fontenay provides wonderful accommodations in a beautifully landscaped, quiet section of Kennebunkport. It is located a short walk to a beach and within walking distance or short drive (<1 mi) to the tourist attractions and crowds in Kennebunk & Kennebunkport. Also, excellent restaurants and shops are essentially next door or across the street. The proprietors, David and Paula Reid are... More

Fun motel with a good location ! Comfortable beds and clean accommodations. Landscaping was beautiful done and very well maintained. Nothing fancy, needs some updating inside. But overall, a good experience!

Friends got married at the Colony...we opted to stay somewhere a bit smaller..perfect choice! Clean, inviting room, beautiful grounds to enjoy and relax in. Hosts were friendly and more than helpful. We loved our stay and would highly recommend.

from start to finish our visit to Kennebunkport was perfect. This motel is clean, close to everything, and the owners are warm, welcoming and very accommodating. Cute shops right across the street, along with a beach and larger hotels with wonderful dining. The center of town with great shops, restaurants and boat trips is 5 minutes away at most. There's...

Thank you for making our visit perfect. A spotlessly kept room to return to after enjoying the Prelude, always completed our day Nothing is better than a clean, friendly, independent motel where not only to you get to meet the owners, but other guest, also. Jan and I certainly hope that you have totally recovered from your fall and that... More

Our friend's wedding was next door and we lucked out by getting a room at the Fontenay Terrace. Less expensive and so charming. Love these small family run motels that still grace the Maine coast. We requested an early check in due to the wedding being that day at 3pm which we found was difficult to confirm and we ended... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Fontenay Terrace and have been very pleased both times. The room was spotless and the location is near shops, restaurants, etc. but is in a quiet area. Will definitely book again!

This was my first time staying at this motel. it was clean and nice. As a single mom I traveled with two children under 10 and felt extremely safe. It was walking distance to the beach and two eateries. I would definitely come back again!
