“Quiet & comfortable in busy Kennebunkport”
Reviewed June 2, 2011

The Fontenay Terrace Motel is an economical and very comfortable accommodation in busy and somewhat expensive Kennebunkport, ME. The rooms are clean, large and well equipped with fridge, microwave, tv, fan. It makes a very quiet retreat from a day in the shops or on the water. There's a river running at the back with occasional ducks; excellent location for couples or small family.

This is a neat little place, with good prices. There are no swimming pools and things like that, but the rooms are spotless and every little detail is thought out. They even have heavenly Turkish towels in the bathroom. The yard was mounds of snow, but we heard that the yards are beautifully kept and a nice place to lounge.

My in-laws needed some extra rooms over Christmas, and the owners were flexible and so gracious about last-minute changes, and dealt with many different personalities in these arrangements. The location is a 2 minute walk to the edge of the ocean and the Kennebunk River, and a 10-15 stroll into the quaint downtown for shopping or dining.

Beautiful spot, clean room, comfortable bed, lots of charisma and great owners and staff made me feel as if I had my own cabin near the ocean.

We were greeted with cookies and our own mini christmas tree at our arrival, great way to start off our 2 night stay. The owners were very nice and the rooms were well maintained and clean. Will stay here again when we are in the area, and will reccomend to others as it was to us.

My wife and I enjoy the excellent location in Kennebunkport. We expecially like the proximity to the scenic ocean walk. (Which is adjacent to a roadway.)
