“Passing through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We spent two nights at the Carriage House, using Wells as a stopping point on our way further up the Maine coast, and as a base for exploring the highlights of this region. We were booked into the main house of this property - a second floor room that was clean and very comfortable. The innkeepers, Bob and Sally, we welcoming and helpful - even though Bob roots for the B' Sox! Take his suggestion for breakfast near the golf course and you won't be disappointed. Overall a ver nice stay.

We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Carriage House Motel. Rooms were clean, kids enjoyed the heated pool and location was perfect. Bob and Sally were very welcoming and the next time I visit Maine I know exactly where we'll be staying. Bob recommended Mike's Clam Shack and The Steak House both within 5 minutes from the motel and both restaurants were excellent. Thanks again Bob and Sally for making our stay in Maine a pleasant one.

We recently spent a night at this lovely spot in Wells. Tripped over it while driving up Route 1, and were warmly welcomed by Sally and Bob. Had a comfortable, clean room with a well-equipped kitchen unit - well-looked after grounds - nice pool and hot tub. Very reasonable rental and we had a lovely quiet night. Wished we had been staying longer - and will definitely go back.

Very clean, but dated. Well equipped for a week's stay, but we only stayed one night. Great location; felt very welcome at check-in. Would go back.

Imagine a beautiful room with a queen-sized bed, pretty chintz convertible queen sized sofa bed and lovely floral and wall print accents...this is what we received at the Carriage House during our September, 2011 stay....and wait the price is right at only $79.00 per night!!! Amazing...right on Rt. 1 and convenient to all restaurants, markets, gas stations, etc. Only about a mile off the ocean. Added to all the creature comforts our room also had a wood table with 4 chairs, draw curtains, a very bright and clean bathroom as well as a cooktop oven, fridge and full utensils, dishes, kitchen clothes...no stairs to climb; motels and rooms are scattered about property...hot tub and pool kept clean and heated nicely. Highly recommend the Carriage House Motel Cottages and Suites....

very clean,affordable ,good family place- only drawback is mattresses. They need to be updated,
it was sort of like sleeping on a slab of concrete.

This was our second year at Carriage House for a family vacation week, and we loved it! Quaint and immaculate cottages, each had a personality - housekeeping staff was friendly, and Sally (innkeeper) was always seen running between guest rooms attending to everyone's needs. Nice pool, small playground, gas grills and picnic tables. Trolleys stop in front of the inn, to take you to Kennebunk shops, Wells beach, and local shopping center. We highly recommend Carriage House! Vicki from PA
