You may want to take a look at MEME http://www.sdsc.edu/MEME/meme/website/

HMMs can also be used to find and model motifs, but neither of the two
HMM packages (HMMer http://genome.wustl.edu/eddy/hmm.html  and
SAM http://www.cse.ucsc.edu/research/compbio/sam.html) is as highly
optimized for motif search.
