“A great find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2009

After the Waldo Emerson Inn double booked us, they found us a room at the Fontenay. We were greeted very warmly and shown to a room that was large and comfortable. While it was not the B&B that we had expected, it was less expensive and suited us just fine. The room had a small refrigerator, a coffeemaker, and a wonderful shower. The grounds were well kept and pleasant, and the motel was only a short drive into town. If I return to Kennebunkport, I will definitely stay at the Fontenay again.

I love the Fontenay. It is in a great location and very clean. It is a basic hotel room but on the large size. When we stayed we had a good size room with 2 double beds and a sitting area. The best part of all is the price...very reasonable. And like another reviewer said it is pretty quiet. It is adjacent to many great restaurants and beaches. We'll be back again next year!

The Fontenay is a great place to stay, especially when you're on a budget. The hotel owners, David and Paula are great people and can answer any questions you may have about the area. We stayed in room # 8, which overlooks the tidal inlet. It's great to wake up and see the water from your bed.

The hotel also provides areas where you can relax outside, including lawn chairs. There's even a small dock on the water where you can visit the ducks on the tidal inlet.

Location is nice. Right next store to the hotel is Mabel's Restaurant. If you've ever been to Kennebunkport or are planning to go to there, that's one restaurant you'll want to eat at.
From the hotel, you can walk along Ocean Ave to Walker's Point, and there's also a beach along the way.

The room itself provides 2 queen beds, TV, table and full bath. The amenities aren't luxurious by no means, but again, this is a budget hotel. The other rooms in the hotel have different sized beds.

  • Liked — Water View. Free wireless Internet.
  • Disliked — None.
