My husband, myself and my 5 yr old grand daughter stayed here for my birthday last year. We had a delightful stay. The suite we stayed in was impeccably clean, and the room was very comfortable. My family and I are excited to stay here again and I would absolutely recommend this place to everyone who's looking for excellent accomodations.

We had a wonderful stay at the Garrison. The deluxe cottage was a good size for the 4 of us. The front deck was a great place to relax and enjoy the view. The kids really enjoyed the pool after a day at the beach. Unfortunately, we were there for only one week, next time we;ll make sure to go... More

We have been here twice now and can't wait to go back. The most important thing on my list - service! They appreciate your business, keep the place spotless, the owners are so helpful. The rooms are clean, the property well kept. My family loves Maine, and so we go every year, There is no doubt in our minds this... More

Room was clean and very comfortable. Beds were comfy, parking right outside the door. Nice area and close enough to drive into Kennebunkport without the hassle of the congestion there. Plenty to do right in Wells. Be sure to venture over to Congdon's donuts for a great breakfast. And Mikes Clam shack for lunch/dinner. Both right close by.

The suite was nicely furnished, comfortable and clean. It was perfect for a two week stay while catching up with friends and relatives back home. I checked out the cottages, the efficiencies and the rooms for future visits. All were freshly painted, nice furnishings and very clean. The views are amazing. Angela, Justin and the people working there are so... More

Am completely puzzled by all the rave reviews. Our room was definitely sparkling clean, with plenty of hot water in the shower, but otherwise, darned uncomfortable. The beds were like sleeping on a plank, with two foam pillows apiece (and one extra), sheets that would charitably be described as "coarse," and a pilled acrylic blanket. The climate control was so... More

Travveller, Sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Please keep in mind that upon checkin you were offered a suite but decided to downgrade to a lesser room type. There is nothing the hotel could have done about this. Unfortunately it seems you have taken your anger towards the Hampton Inn out on us by giving both properties a... More

Angela: Just wanted to give you a quick note to say "thank you" for a wonderful long weekend. My husband and I spoke all weekend about the suite, the grounds, and the staff. Everything was excellent. Your staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating whenever we asked for something. They were right there ready to assist us. The... More

The Garrison has something for everyone, Rooms, Suites, and Efficiencies. It has a pool and is near the Ocean. It is family friendly and quite reasonable and spacious. There are nearby restaurants and it has a great view of the River.
