This is a classic motel that reminds me of my childhood in New England -- only cleaner! There is nothing fancy about this place. It's not a 4-star hoity toity establishment. This is for people who want a clean, comfortable, quiet place to sleep, near the attractions they came to see. Even when we had loud neighbors talking boisterously outside,...

We were 3 adults who stayed at the Cape Porpoise Motel in August 2011. Quiet location, fabulous homemade breakfasts, warm and attentive hosts. Best quality/price deal in town. With only 7 units, we consider ourselves lucky to have stayed here. Thanks John and Deb for everything.

My wife and I just returned from our second stay at the Cape Porpoise Motel and once again, I cannot say enough good things about it. The accommodations were first-rate, very clean and comfortable, and John and Debra could not do enough for any of their guests. The breakfasts were excellent, all home-made breads and muffins, fresh-cut fruit salads, along...

My family has been coming to Kennebunkport for more than 35 years and always rented on Goose Rocks Beach. This was the first time we rented in Cape Porpoise. John offered one of the houses that he and his wife now manage along with their adorable motel. The house was WONDERFUL! Unlike many of the cottages on Goose Rocks Beach,...

John and Deb Morin are the hosts and owners of this great little gem hidden away at Cape Porposie Maine. Simple and comfortable with incredible hospitality is their standard. This is what visiting the new england coast should be like. Clean, comfortable (not plush) quiet. I like the "Cottage" which is an interesting combination of rooms ... and I've stayed...

My husband and I stayed here for a wonderful 9 evenings. We would definitely stay here again! John and Debra did everything in their power to provide the best hospitality ever and succeeded!

My husband, one year old and 3 year old shih tzu decided to go for a "ride' over Memorial day weekend. No destination planned and no reservations anywhere. We figured if we found a place that took pets then we would stay if not, we'd make the long trek home. We found the Cape Porpoise on our meandering travels and...

“Most of the rooms are in a strip. We were on one end and it was quiet. There's a larger unit separate from the motel strip.”

“We had the room on the end which gives you an extra window but also the sound of the occasional car.”

“Look at the Cape Porpoise Motel site and choose a standard room, kitchenette or apartment that is right for you. No deception here-what you see is what you get (in every case, a clean, comfortable lodging experience).”
