I have been staying at Village By The Sea for at least 15 years. The suites are large with great views of the Rachel Carson wildlife preserve and the ocean. Staff is friendly and location is great right on US 1 in Wells.

From arrival to departure, it was a great pleasure to stay there. My unit was really clean upon arrival and employees are friendly. By the time we stay (middle of may) the price are really affordable with the Habitat for Humanity special. All the family loved to stay there. And less then 10 minutes away from the sea (Wells) and... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. We asked for a seafood restaurant and they guided us to a terrific restaurant. Our condo was clean as clean can be. Very spacious. We loved the porch off the bedroom. They had everything in the room that I needed. It is close to shopping, beaches, and restaurants. Didn't have to drive far... More

A colleague of mine recommended this place for an extended stay on business and he was right. The rooms are quite large and well appointed. Off season rates are very reasonable. Once you have stayed here, you will learn where in the many buildings and floors you would prefer. Overall a good value.

We only stayed for one night as our trip had a very specific purpose but the room was perfect and the staff lovely. We had a beautiful view of the marsh from the second floor with lots of bird activity to enjoy. The accommodations were comfortable and spotless. We also received a tremendous deal on the room as a promotional... More

This is the first time staying at this resort. We vacation in Wells a lot during the summer and decided to go there for Valentine's day. The place we usually stay at is not open in the winter so friends suggested Village by the Sea. We booked the place and then due to a snow storm could not make the... More

The grounds are well landscaped and maintained, the rooms are always clean and pretty. We love having all the comforts of home, while we are away from home. Large dinning area, huge living room and a decent size kitchen. The area is perfect and the staff is great. What more does anyone need?

Village By the Sea is our favorite place to stay in Wells, ME. We love the large suites in which there is plenty of room to hang out, relax, cook, and watch TV or a DVD. Not like most places where there is only one small room to stay in. Love the full size kitchens. The decor in most of... More

Great place to get away from home and still feel like you're home. Very comfortable and very clean. Great sized suites with an awesome view. We will definitely return. Good location, close to a lot of things.

Very nice room and the staff was exceptionally nice. My kids loved the patio where they could draw with chalk and run in the grass. The pool was great and much deeper than the normal hotel room. We would stay again as it accommodated our larger family.
