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.

Try this place you will not be disappointed. Whether you prefer a single room for two or a fully equipped cottage for your family this is the place for you. Justin and Angela are the best owners I have ever come across. Very attentive to our needs, extremely clean, and very accommodating to their guests. If you see him on... More

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

My family has been going to Wells, Maine on vacation since long before I was born. I have been staying at The Garrison on and off for years. The new owners are wonderful, the renovations amazing. I've been 3 times so far this year and will be back again at least 2 more times this summer. I love the new... More

Stayed here in June for a 2nd visit. Had a 2nd floor suite room, same vicinity as last year, and was just as happy. The accommodations (suite rooms) are always very clean, modern and comfortable. Although the property is on Route One, I found it pretty quiet, with amazing views of the salt marsh and beyond. Staff is very friendly... More

My family has been coming to Wells for 25+ years, and coming to the Garrison for a few years now. We've stayed in the luxury suites as well as the cottages. We have also had family with us that have stayed in the motel rooms, so we have the property pretty well covered. The Garrison is centrally located in Wells,... More

We have always enjoyed the Maine coast, and vacation there several times during the summer. My wife and I recently just jumped in the car and winged it ( no reservations) We came across the Garrison Suites. Even before we pulled in the place looked amazing with a lovely view of the ocean and the flats. The staff was great,... More

I think this place is a gem. Our second floor suite was perfect for our leisurely getaway. Usually we are on-the-go, so a room is all we need (and we did stay in one of their motel rooms on a previous trip), but this visit we were more about taking our time and appreciated having the extra room to relax...

We love to stay at The Garrison. The suites are clean, comfortable and well equipped. They're close to attractions, beaches, shops, and lots of wonderful restaurants. The kitchen enables us to eat in if we choose. The hospitality of those at the front desk as well as other staff members has always been friendly and helpful. We highly recommend it.
