Spider webs, dirty linen and bedspread. Paid for 3 nights, left after one. NO REFUND! Probably the only way they make money. Certainly couldn't be by repeat business. One night there...and NO WAY a smart person would ever go back.

I spent two nights at this motel, two weeks apart. The first stay was very unplanned. I rang the bell after 11:00 PM. Sure enough, the clerk came through the door and didn't leave me waiting more than a minute, maybe two. I got room #20. It was a tiny bit chilly in the room, and I didn't have any... More

Have stayed at Tallwoods with my family several times. But have not been here in many years. Checked in on Sept. 24. After checking in, the owner told me that they had a leak and the water would be off for 20 min. We went to the room and found it to be filthy.The shower was black and the room... More

When in Wells, ME check out the Tallwood Motel. Friendly service, very clean, and a good location for exploring the Kennebunkport area. Excellent off season rates as well- for two, about $60 a night. Give the Tallwood motel a try!

This place is a poor excuse for a motel.The owner could care less about the appearance of the rooms. The rooms are dirty ,sheets and blankets have holes in them.Everything is outdated.Terrible smell in the room.The A/C unit is in the front window with a full length drape covering it. How stupid is that? I would never go back there!

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
