My wife, toddler, and I have spent our last two summer vacations in Wells and both times we stayed at The Garrison. Why? Because it is perfect! The suites are roomy, very affordable, and the cleaning service is impeccable! We are close to a variety of great restaurants as well as to a supermarket for those days when we want... More

I have been visiting the Wells beach area since birth. at least once a year (47 years). For the past 30 years I have been a guest at the Garrison. It was formally owned by another family and called Garrison Suites. The new owners Justin and Angela are very nice. We rent a deluxe cottage for two weeks but have... More

First time there! Rented one of their suites for 4 days. Owners Angela and Justin are friendly and will help you with everything. Great location, walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. Trolley stops right out front. Suite has everything you need toaster, microwave, fridge, stove. Nice deck to sit outside. Price was very reasonable. We will be making this... More

We just returned from a stay at The Garrison, and must say we were sad to leave. We had a great time at this comfortable and clean property. We stayed in a queen suite that more than exceeded our expectations (the pictures online didn't do it justice). The suite more than accommodated our needs. I was very happy to be... More

We had a queen suite and it was simply wonderful! It was very clean and more than enough room for up to six people. Complete with full kitchen and everything you need including a dishwasher. The staff was wonderful and the owners more than willing to make your stay memorable. Everyone was very courteous and professional always interested in our... More

Wow, I find it hard to believe that my husband and I actually stayed at the same motel as Peterbilt13 and at the same time last week! Apparently, we had two very different experiences! I'm sorry we missed the frat party! I do agree the noise level does increase around the pool area sometimes, whether it be from old friends... More

Owners Justin and Angela keep this property spotless. They were very accommodating to their guests needs. Great family atmosphere as well as a couples get away. The property is located within walking distance of many restaurants. You will not be disappointed.

We've stayed at the Garrison many times and have usually had a very enjoyable time, which is why we keep returning. The rooms are clean, rates reasonable and the location is perfect for our needs. Unfortunately, three things happened that kept this from being a great visit. The first was minor...after being gone for 4 hours our room had not... More

GMGarrison, Owner at The Garrison, responded to this review

Renee, Our housekeepers work very, very, hard and like every other hotel we have them clean checkouts first. This is the most efficient method of doing business as we have a 2 PM check in. They have a very limited amount of time to "flip"rooms. Unfortunately you found this inconvenient. I have just looked at the housekeeping hours from the... More

We have stayed at the Garrison several times over the past ten years and it continues to exceed our standards. It has always been fantastically clean and maintained. I have noticed several improvements over the years. The staff are all very nice. Two of us shared an efficiency room which was roomy and comfortable, and at $165 a night was... More
