We truly enjoyed our stay at the Cape Porpoise Motel. Having been to the Kennebunks before, and never having explored Cape Porpoise, this was the perfect home base. Close to everything! Clean, quiet, and had all the amenities we could need.
And the hosts and their pets are lovely!
This is our new go-to place for our stays any where near by.

We've stayed at this simple, clean, nicely kept motel several times, and were always impressed by the friendly and personal touch that John and Debra provide. Despite being returning guests who always left our room in good shape, we were surprised to learn this year that our dog was not welcome. We had made reservations for later in the summer and it was too late to find another place, so we were quite inconvenienced by having to keep the dog in the car overnight for two nights on our next visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same, include fridge and coffee maker. Clean, attractive and simply furnished.

As the owner John says this is the quiet side of Kennebunkport - and this is not to complain about. The home baked goodies at breakfast are delicious. It is not fancy but spotlessly clean.
The Cape Porpoise Chowder House at the end of the pier is very good for lobster and other shell fish as recommended by John

Always drove by but thought it would be out of price range..the pricing for what you get can only be described as great value for the money.clean newly painted rooms..The owners treat you like family..sent us home with homemade corn muffin tops. Right in the heart of Cape Porpoise...a must stay..not overly fancy but super clean and the treatment is top notch.

This is an excellent mom and pop coastal motel. Basic, clean accommodations with an assortment of rooms within minutes of area beaches lighthouses, lobster shacks, restaurants and the Kennebunk region. John, the most personable owner of this nine unit establishment, can not do enough to make your stay enjoyable. We visited just before Memorial Day to avoid the crowds but most area attractions and local restaurants were open. If you are looking for a great off season and/or laid back Maine experience, away from the bustle of Route 1, look no further!

Very nice and simple motel unit made especially pleasant by a) lovely owners b) home baked breakfast goodies and c) it's location. Although only a couple of miles physically away from the touristy Kennebunks, metaphorically it is miles and miles away - and all the better for it. Lovely quiet location next to some fantastic and simple food options.

The units are somewhat small but functional. Clean and presentable are the name of the day. No noise could be heard from other units and looking at the other clientele they seemed a discerning bunch.

A little gem - plain, simple & honest.
