Having read a few of the reviews here, I can agree that the decor of the Tallwood could use an update. However if that was the only issue, I could have easily given it a better rating. Old doesn't equal poor in my opinion. However it's the details, like the malfunctioning plumbing, missing shelves in the fridge, the soda machine... More

Where to begin... Their "rustic" cabin are just dirty shacks...with ants and other creepy crawlers... If you can get the door open to your porch... You will find a nasty, dirty table and chairs... Ripped screens and dirty, stained carpet. TV remote doesn't work noisy sliding bathroom door and the very loud train that blows it's horn several times during... More

We arrived and checked into our room. The curtain rod holder was barely hanging on the wall. The room smelled a bit of stale smoke even though it was a non smoking room. The phone and clock radio did not work. I called the office to notify them of the items so we did not get blamed for it at... More

No hot water when we arrived. we'd already unpacked and were told we could move to another room of the night. No WiFi in room. Had to sit in a smoke filled garage to use. Stayed for 5 days. Room was not cleaned nor were beds made or changed. Had to ask for towels and toilet paper. One time towels... More

I stayed at this hotel recently. I paid a very low amount compared to other hotels in the area. this hotel is also located within a reasonable walking distance of one of the best places to eat in Maine, the Maine diner. the pool was very clean but was vacant and had a slightly unwelcoming atmosphere. Bedding was very fresh... More

I checked in around 4:00 PM on 8/20/2014, dumped my luggage and went to the beach and then dinner. Arrived back at the room around 10 PM and discovered the box spring was broken and the frame was separated. No one was at the desk so I attempted to repair the bed to no avail. I slept on the floor... More

Yes, the cost of the motel is a value for where you are at, but that's about it. The owners are working very hard to upgrade the motel, but they have a ways to go - they didn't seem to plan ahead to have the rooms assigned to reservations open and ready to go. Our room was clean enough, but... More

If you don't want to pay over $150 for a room in Wells then this place will surprise you. its not a Hilton but it had what we needed. Nice clean room and a huge pool. For 94 bucks on a Saturday... I won't complain.

Tallwood is old style, family owned motel. Rooms are dated but clean. Staff is freindly and accomodating. Had trouble getting towels and other supplies replaced as there was a language problem with the housekeeping staff. Centerally located and close to some fantastic restaurants. I would rather spend money on a lobster than a fancy room.

I was disappointed with this place. Pictures looked good and are similar to what you get but you can't see how dark and humid the place is. Descriptions talked about BBQs but no gaz tanks. kitchen area but no dishes, wifi but signal was too low to get emails, we ended up going to McDonalds in the mornings for coffee... More
