The motel is centrally located in a park-like setting next to a river and across the street from the ocean. The owners were very helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do in the area as we arrived just as the seasonal restaurants were shutting down for the winter. The room was clean and quiet. It's not fancy, but has... More

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

This is a small motel, out of the village and we loved it. Close to the beach and on a lake. It was end of October so very quiet everywhere. The room was perfect, with a very comfortable bed, table, chairs, fridge etc. Friendly owners. Loved watching the birds on the feeders. Thoroughly recommended.

We have stayed at the Fontenay in the past. It is such a great place to stay. Great location, clean, comfortable rooms. Near the Bush compound with great ocean views. Rooms are reasonably priced - best deal in town.

Short walk to beach, short drive or 14-15 minute walk to town center. I was in town for a wedding at The Colony. This was a great less expensive option. It is literally right across the street, super convenient.

We stayed one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The property was beautiful and relaxing. The room was cute and clean. This motel was fairly close to the shops and restaurants in town. We walked from the hotel to the main shopping area.

I had two nice visits at the Fontenay this summer. The location is great. Almost next door to the beach and an easy drive or morning walk to the center. Restaurants right there. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. It is a simple, no fuss, spotlessly clean place with lovely grounds. I love this place!

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!
