This was our second time at this property. Wonderful location. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and you can't beat the price. We will definitely come back. Owners are very nice and friendly. Facility is a few short steps away from the ocean. Great quality at a great price = great value. Quiet, peaceful and a better deal than... More

This is our 6th year of returning to the Fontenay Terrace Motel. This is a clean comfortable independent motel that is consistent in all categories.Although this may not be the best choice for families with young children or infants due to having no pool, playground etc, it is an excellent choice for couples. It is comfortable and quiet. We are... More

Once again, a restful, peaceful and inspiring trip to the Fontenay Terrace. It proves itself a gem each time I go, and as always, the Fontenay offers clean, comfortable and accomodating rooms. Although, to it's advantage, it is out of the way of all the hustle and bustle, it is only a short walk to the village for shopping, restaurants,... More

I've stayed at four other lodgings in Kennebunkport over the last 20 years and Fontenay Terrace has become my favorite. It's far enough from Dock Square so you're away from the hustle and bustle of those on bus tours, but close enough that you can walk there for a meal, whale watching, or shopping. In the other direction is the... More

This is a perfect place to stay in Kennebunkport. It is close enough to walk to town and only a block from the beach. We were lucky enough to get room number 8 which has a picture window overlooking the inlet. I did not see the other rooms, but we were glad to spend a little extra to have the... More

The Fontenay Terrace Motel was a wonderful place to stay in Kennebunkport, Maine. It's located near the great shopping and just a short walk to the water. It's right next door to Mabel's (which is just an ok restaurant). The room was very clean. The owners and staff are friendly, accessible and helpful. It was super quiet at night so... More

Nice, clean, quiet and relaxing little motel. I would recommend this if you are looking for a quiet inexpensive motel down the strret from Kennebunkport. It is within walking distance to a small beach by the jetty, which is fun to watch the boats come and go. There is also a walking path by the ocean that takes you up... More
