This was an Interval International timeshare swap. However it also rents rooms. It looks like a plain motel from the street but the reason I rated it so high is because as simple as it is, it's perfect. The unit is a bedroom with a comfortable queen sized bed, a full Jacuzzi bathroom and a large living room/kitchen. There is... More

Stayed at the Nautical Mile Resort during Labour Day week-end. Hadn't booked anything before heading down to Wells and decided to call around the night before our stay. Pleasantly surprised, my husband and I called and got a 1 bedroom unit on the ground floor. Very clean, comfortable and cozy (double bed) and is a fully functional unit! Nothing needed... More

I really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very attentive. The property was clean and well maintained. They were doing small repairs while we were there. The pool area was small but nice and they also had tennis and basketball courts. The one bedroom was perfect for two people. It had a fully equipped kitchen with a table tv pull... More

If your used to spacious accommodations in a resort, you will be disappointed with this one. Facilities show there age and the lack of investment back into the property. Warped boards as hand rails, cook stoves that are ancient. Although it was clean, the decorator clearly lacks modern taste and experience in the resort industry. Rebuilt motel yes, resort probably...

We spent the last week at the Nautical Mile Resort in Wells, as a timeshare exchange from a previous year. I had read all of the previous reviews and there seemed to be a lot of trouble with the word 'Resort' in their name. What is a resort? Its different for each person, but I think for most people, you... More

Although a bit tired and very basic as suites go (the kitchenette doubles as the dining room which doubles as the living room which doubles as a second bedroom with a fold out couch) this is a perfectly adequate place to sleep while touring south coastal Maine, especially if the price is right. Resort? I'm not so sure. There are... More

Our first clue that we had a problem was that this location was the room available during the month of Sept or October. The location was perfect for day trips, but that was the only plus. The room was so cramped we had to store our travel bags in the car. The spread on the bed had such a bad... More

The place is well maintained and the staff is courteous and willing to help. The pool area is large and clean...the week we stayed the water was green but they worked hard at restoring it and by Thursday the green was gone. It is convenient to local restaurants, the beach and other sites

We stayed in unit 134 on the backside of the property (and VERY convenient to Congdon's!). The unit was very clean and well stocked. The location is so convenient to many popular destinations, restaurants and beaches. There is a Hannafords just 2 minutes down the road that was very well staffed and stocked also. The staff at The Nautical Mile... More
