“Great Value & Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Girlfriend get away to Boston and the Maine coast brought us to Wells. My friend is always on a budget for our annual trips, so we picked this lodging facility. The value cannot be beat. Sally and Bob were wonderful hosts with great information on restaurants, getting around, etc. The location was great as it is so close to beaches and quaint little towns along the coast. We were there for four nights and every night was peaceful and quiet. We stayed in cottage #3 which was very clean. The only complaint I would have is that there were no mattress pads on the beds, so you could feel the mattress below and the bathroom was a bit difficult to maneuver around due to where the vanity and towel racks were located. Would definately stay again but might pick one of the motel rooms.

Found Sally and Bob's Carriage House Motel on the internet and was very pleased with my experience there. I stayed in a two bedroom 1 1/2 bath cottage with a HUGE backyard and cooking grill with a picnic table. the beds were perfect for me (firm) and the stay was very easy going. everyone left you alone but were there for you if you needed something. This is a relaxed property and is great for someone who just wants a mini home to 'chill' in on vacation. if you want a comfortable,clean friendly place that's located in the heart of town and very near the beaches this is the place for you. I would go back every time I visit Maine. it was perfect for me and my friends. -kurt wieting NYC

Room Tip: I picked cottage 8. there were three of us. two twin beds and a big bed in a master bedroom. living...

I was driving home after a week in the Maine woods when I happened on this lovely place. Innkeepers Bob and Sally were terrific, and the room was outstanding: immaculate and beautifully decorated. I swam laps in the pool, and followed Bob's advice and walked to Wells Beach for exercise. Don't pass it up!

Been coming to Maine for 50 years and this was our first try at the Carriage House. I didnt think family owned motels like this existed anymore. The place is a throw back to what motels in Maine used to be, a strip of rooms with a few cabins, a nice clean pool, basketball court and shuffle board for the kids, a nice little hot tub, on site laundry.

The big plus? It is QUIET. Second big plus? The rooms and service were perfect and spotless. If you want a nice, quiet place that is not over crowded and cost you an arm and a leg, this is the place.

The owners live on site and are extremely nice and helpful. They always have a smile and a hello for you when they see you. The girls doing housekeeping are great.

If you want a high end resort with the associated costs, this is not the place. Think.....casual, relaxed, QUIET.....

We are already booking a cabin for a year from now, thats how much the Carriage House impressed us.

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.
