Good place to stay. Price was very reasonable and John, the owner/host was such a nice man. He made sure we were taken care of. He even upgraded our room since the original room we were booked for was having some changes made. The room did not come with a coffee maker, but when we expressed how we like our... More

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review of our property. We are more than happy when we can accommodate for guests with personal requests. In order to keep our rates low we do not offer as many in room amenities (coffee pots, hair dryers, etc) but we do have them available for guests to use upon request.... More

Not the most luxurious, but I had no complaints. Everything worked, the room was large and clean, and the shower was extra large. The area is nice and quiet, except for the odd truck using its engine brakes. I would definitely stay again. A big Hannafords grocery store is right across the street.

Thank you for your review and your appreciation of its simplicity. It sounds as if you stayed in one of our single king or queen rooms with the newly renovated bathrooms (since you commented on the shower size - they can pretty much shower a small pony). They are certainly spacious and with the low step-in design it makes for... More

Second time staying. We thought the first time was awesome, this time even better. Updates have been made to the motel that do nothing but make it even better. The bathroom area is now large and inviting. My only complaint is the mattress. Not the greatest. Owners are friendly, helpful and very accommodating. I would recommend this motel to anyone....

We recently spent the night here in one of the motel rooms. The new memory foam mattresses were soooo comfortable! Great TV, everything was very clean! The staff were all very accommodating and helpful to any request! The price was very reasonable- a great value!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful to hear of your comfortable stay. Our rooms with 2 queen beds house the memory foam mattresses and most guests find them relaxing. Since we are family run, my husband will be glad to hear that you enjoyed the television! He upgraded all TVs (and programming) for this season (a guy thing :-) Our trained housekeeping staff...

John and Cynthia have made some very important updates to the grounds. The hot and cold water issue in the cabins is fixed and works wonderfully! The old 1980 square TV's have been updated. They have added a propane fire ring which is oh so nice. If you haven't returned since your last visit because it was a little dated.... More

WOW - right back at 'cha. Thank you for your kind words and testament that our property is a 'work in progress'. We are small, family run, and we care very much about guest experience. If we fall short in any way we will do our best to turn things around. I too didn't realize how much enjoyment guests would... More

We had a little problem with smell, as probably previous tenants had animals with them. As soon as we told it to the owners, they immediatly came and checked and... More

NEVER A NUMBER! There are a lot of things that are subjective when it comes to hospitality experiences (the comfort of the beds, pillows, etc); however customer service is never subjective! We are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay but also THANK YOU for allowing us to fix the problem (placing you in a more suitable cabin... More

This was our first time at this hotel. We enjoyed our time here. Its in a perfect location. Close to everything. We had a king room right in the front. The room was comfortable and nicely updated. They have a nice pool in the back and plenty of room for kids to play outside of the pool area.

We just happened to stay here one night back in June on a last minute decision to go to Maine. We were pleasantly surprised that the room was very clean, and the beds had memory foam so were comfortable. We decided to stay again when we wanted to go back recently for a week.

We spent one night at Coastal Village Inn this past weekend. I have always wanted to stay at a cottage in Maine. Had no idea what it would be like. We stayed in Cottage #5. I think it was being renovated and still needs a few things. I believe when the renovation is complete, it will be a nice place... More

We travel to the Ogunquit/Wells area every year and tend to stay in different locations based on price and when we book. This year my wife found The Coast Village Inn & Cottages and shared the reviews with me, we took a gamble that paid back greatly. We booked the Sand Dollar Suite, which was plenty large enough for our... More
