For a last minute place to sleep it was fine. I am not one to be all concerned about modern decor. The room was clean however I found the beds too soft for my personal taste. However the manager, who I never met in person, left me a nasty voice mail saying I had snuck a dog into my room... More

nothing special at all. but the room was clean with a refrigerator, microwave, sufficient hot water, and a quiet environment. if you need to stay in Sanford, this works fine. otherwise, spend a few dollars more and stay on the coast for a more pleasant environment

My family booked this hotel with three adults and two kids. The hotel room is spacious, with enough room for the extra cot that we had needed. The room itself was very clean, but the decor itself was very outdated. The staff was friendly enough but the continental breakfast was not impressive. Will most likely try to book elsewhere first,... More

Location is close to Wells.Motel is very clean and the size of our corner room was very unexpected. The owners are very friendly and accommodating . We were a family of four spending a weekend at the ocean and the Sanford Inn met our needs very well. We will return next year.

We booked a room at this motel because the town has limited dhoices for hotels. This is not a hotel that we care to use again. It is an old motel, worn, and tired. The decor has not been changes since it was built in the '50s. The room was marginally clean with the entry located near the parking space.... More

We needed a place to stay while visiting for my nephews graduation. We stayed a couple of nights. The staff was so kind & friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. The Sanford Inn was perfect for what we needed. :)

I've stayed many nights here! Everyone is very nice and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and homey. It's not the Ritz nor do they try to be it. You will find the room clean, fresh, comfortable beds and pillows. Free wifi and a small refrigerator make this place enjoyable. And the price won't break the bank.

I loved this place. A throwback to a 1950's motel. The only thing missing was metal motel chairs outside the room. We were in town briefly for a marathon and stayed one night. It was convenient. More so, it was roomy. Rooms were large. I loved the ability to park outside the room. And the AC worked well and offered... More

Friendly and helpful management. Very clean and comfortable room with mini refrigerator and a microwave and a large new TV. The rooms are typical 1970's style. Some may feel it needs to be updated but as an old guy, I felt nostalgia for years past. I usually travel on business for a major multinational and usually in expensive, upscale hotels... More
