Just returned from 5 nights and 6 days in Maine; stayed at this motel and have no complaints. The room was a little small, but the view more than made up for it. This place is literally right on the beach and our room had balcony that faced the water. Woke up the the sounds of the surf. We had... More

Just returned from a long weekend at the Atlantic Motel right on the beach. We had never stayed there before and have already made reservations for next year's stay! The king suite was up to date, clean and comfortable. The heated pool was a nice bonus after a long day in the salt water. Location is quiet and centrally located... More

Ii have always been pleased with my stays but on my last visit, I really felt like one member of your stafff went beyond the call of duty. And because of this I just felt like I had to pose something.... More

Stayed here over the weekend and really enjoyed the stay. We had a oceanfront room, you are basically on the beach. Room was clean, not really up to date, had a big deck, two lounge chairs, enjoyed sitting out there. Parking for 1 car. The room wasn't cheap 300 a night, which was the only negative

Booked an oceanfront room for two nights and left within 20 minutes. Parking is very limited (an understatement). The carpeting in the hallways was filthy, the pool water was dirty, the room was extremely hot (and the carpets in the room were not clean, either). The lady in the office was rude and while she seemed surprised (shocked, actually) that... More

The hotel was fine; not fancy, but clean. The pool area and the exterior could use some updating. I have been in Cape Cod water with no problem, so I was unprepared for the extreme cold of the ocean at Wells Beach. Fortunately, there were nearby woodland walks and other diversions; swimming in the ocean was just not possible for... More

This is my family's second stay at the Atlantic Oceanfront on Wells Beach. We love it here because it is right on the beach. Small hotel with heated pool, family oriented and clean. Staff is friendly. Rates are comparable to other places in Wells. The only thing missing is that it is not a pet-friendly hotel so if you have... More

We just got back from a wonderful weekend away at this hotel. I can't figure out how it's not rated higher on hotels in Wells. We walked the beach and saw the locations of others and this one was by far the best. The room was clean and nice, the lady at check in was very helpful and the rates... More
