Very nice place. Staff was nice, courteous and helpful. Room was a nice size and comfortable. The table and chairs were old and a little uncomfortable and that is why we gave it a 4 out of 5. We would insider coming back again.

We had a wonderful week at the Fontenay Terrace. Rooms are a good size, very clean, in room coffee and very quite. The grounds are lovely and the ocean breeze was very cooling even on the days when the temperature was in the 90s. The location is superb, a 1 mile walk in to town for shopping and meals and...

I feel a little guilty about taking so long to post a review of the Fontenay Terrace since Mr. Reid, the owner/manager was so helpful when we stayed there. We only allotted one night in Kennebunkport but wish we had stayed longer. This is what my recollection of 1960's motels look like, except this has been updated and is very...

My husband and I really enjoyed our relaxing time at Fontenay, bike riding, walking,etc. David was very helpful and pleasant. The area is wonderful. Close to town but far enough for quiet. We hope to visit again soon.

I always prefer mom and pop motels, but for some reason have never noticed the Fontenay Terrace in 45 years of Maine trips. As with almost all of the best of these types of accomodations, the room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, the furnishings were dated but not beaten up. Room rates seem reasonable considering the location, which...

We had a wonderful extended weekend at the Fontennay Terrace, from the warm welcome to the heartfelt goodbyes! The room was warm and comfortable with so many extra touches...a lit Christmas tree in the room when we arrived, a beautiful live poinsettia plant in the window, home made cookies in a china plate on our table, and wonderful hospitality from...

We enjoyed our stay and were made so very welcome. The room was large and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location was perfect - quiet and relaxing but close to all the amenities. Ideal for mature couples.

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...

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...

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,...
