VBTS offers a great provision of a fully stocked apartment so you can cook your own meals with either one or two bedrooms/ baths for the perfect getaway. We even had a washer and dryer in our apartment! VBTS sits back from the business of Route 1 so traffic noise is not an issue. We've stayed twice over the years... More

My husband and I spent three nights here for a mini-honeymoon. As it was off season, the hotel offered a generous special, pay for one night, and get the second and third night for 50% off. How could we pass that up? We stayed in a one bedroom, two bath unit on the bottom floor, which sort of feels like... More

Village by the Sea is the only place we stay, when we visit Wells every year. The suites are always clean and comfortable. They are spacious and welcoming for our entire family. It is great having a dining room, full kitchen and laundry facilities right in the suite. We forgot our beach chairs and the suite had 3 chairs in... More

Spent 1 night here and wouldn't go back. We were on the third floor, no elevator. Room wasn't clean enough...found Cheerios underneath the air conditioning unit in the living room. Crumbs on a couch. The blanket was old and worn, pilled. Although it may have been clean, it didn't look it. I wouldn't have a blanket like that in my... More

This was our first stay at VBTS and we really enjoyed our accommodations and the location of the resort. We used both the indoor and outdoor pools when we returned home from our day at the beach. Our seven year old son loved being able to swim even though we had a few rainy afternoons. I would prefer to be... More

Centrally located, a feeling of having your own private condo rather than just a hotel room. Enjoyed the two reclining chairs as my husband sleeps in a chair part of each night and its hard to find recliners in motel rooms. Could be a bit noisy if you did have people upstairs making a lot of noise .

I just returned from a mini vacation last week and as always, hated to leave. First of all, I have no idea where you could find such accommodations for the price. Secondly, we visited Kennebunk and York, etc.. and VBTS is in the perfect, central location. Some units may not be decorated to modern codes, but who cares! We don't... More

I took my 2 kids here on a mommy/kids weekend getaway and we loved it! It was our first time here and wont be our last. The unit we stayed was so roomy and nice, and very clean! The pool was also very clean and perfect for the kids, while I lounged in the hot tub. I will certainly be... More
