This reminds me of the type of place we used to stay at when I was a kid. You park in the parking lot out front, climb the steps to your room (no elevator), look at the pool out front, and then unlock the room with your little key and walk into a nice size room with a balcony. You... More

Best location - right on the beach. We stayed in a King Corner room and had a balcony right over the sand. Very family friendly but also quiet for couples. Very clean and comfortable rooms and pristine bathroom. Our room had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, and free wifi. Parking is tight but we found a... More

Perfect location great place for families with children. Ocean front and a pool! Close to trolley stop, arcade, ice cream and a few gifts shops. Motel itself is spotless! Kudos to the housekeeping staff! This motel is very nicely run

Our room was clean and everything worked as it should. We... More

Can't imagine staying anywhere else when we go to Maine :). It's quaint, not big. The view on the balcony is perfect and the location... well. You're right on the beach! The parking is awful, but who cares? The place is clean and everyone is friendly. ...have I mentioned you're on the beach?

This motel is right on the beach. The owner is not the type of person that you want working with the public. The rooms are nice, the list of rules is extensive. It was uncomfortable to be here as we were always looking out to make sure we went by all the rules. We were most comfortable when we left.

Atlantic has been here forever. We stayed here in the 70's! Since than they've updated the rooms, but there are still things that need improvement. Very little space for parking. Don't bring an extra car!! There isn't an elevator, so be prepared to lug your suitcase up stairs which need to be revamped. The rooms are fine with nice toiletries.... More

My daughter and I spent a weekend here in August 2014. Our room was on the second floor with a balcony and an ocean view. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located a short walk from shops and a carry-out and eat-in restaurant which served the most delicious...

My husband and I have stayed here twice before. The location is great-right on the beach! It is also very close to everything in Wells-restaurants, mini golf, etc. the rooms are nice and basic-everything you need. There is an outdoor pool which is advertised as heated but I think that may be a relative term as it only seemed warm... More

Right on the beach, you couldn't ask for a better location. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and plenty of activities.Do yourself a favor and try a stay here. If I had to complain about something, it would be the shower head which is typical of most motels. The water just don't come out strong... More
