The Garrison is set on a breathtaking hillside that overlooks the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge and Webhannet River, with the ocean in the far distance. The grounds have a direct view and the motel buildings themselves are set perpendicular to it, so you get the view of the waterfront by sitting outside of your room on the communal balconies.

Our annual vacation to Wells, Maine was awesome- thanks to The Garrison and the beautiful weather. The Garrison was very clean and the cottage was supplied with everything we needed for our stay. The view from our deck was amazing and peaceful. Justin, Angela, and staff made our vacation an memorable one!

Have stayed at the Garrison on and off for long family weekends over the years. Nicely run motel. Clean, BEAUTIFUL view of the shore, well kept grounds and a very friendly staff. Rooms are spotless, well taken care of. Great Value. right on the main drag in Wells Maine. Beaches, food, etc. minutes away.

We spent 4 wonderful days enjoying the food, ocean and sunshine in Maine. I have stayed at the Garrison before and although I didn't need a suite this time, the motel room was great. Lots of room, nice and clean and a great rate. I love being close enough to the beach, breakfast at Congdon's right across the street and... More

We absolutely could not ask for a better place to stay! Clean, quiet, such a pleasure. The staff is so pleasant. They could not do enough to please us. We were close to everything, beach, shopping, and restaurants. We walked to the beach down Mile Road. We can not say enough. You will love it!

Have stayed here multiple times before and each time I am more impressed than the last. The views were fantastic. The rooms were wonderful and the cleanest ones I have ever seen. Everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff went out of their way to make our stay great. I would not hesitate to recommend this to everyone... More

Had friends recommend The Garrison as I needed to spend 3 days in Wells-Ogunquit area and didn't want to spend the exorbitant prices on water or in Perkins Cove area. Couldn't have been more pleased with my suite. My wife and I loved the cleanliness and roominess of the suite as well as the mattress and shower (not at the... More

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.
