My friend, Dog and I stayed in Room 14 in June and it was great. Room was very clean and you would never know this was a dog friendly motel. Check in was easy, staff was friendly, Bed is pretty comfortable, Shower was awesome, I wish I could bring that water pressure shower head home with me, I guess I need to come back. Our room had a kitchenette with a stove top and a microwave and coffee maker, they even supplied some coffee as well as dishes we could use and dish soap! It was a little small to sit in the kitchen but the table in the room area worked perfectly. The refrigerator was dorm room size, but immaculate. We even had ice cubes waiting for us :-) It is a little tight if you need to put a kennel in the room, so we did not set it up. There is only one area to walk your dog so, I recommend that you walk in the local park area or on the beach. When we were there in June, the time for dogs on the beach was before 8 and after 6. Great Location too, It's close to everything from Kennebunkport to York and all the beaches! I have been recommending The Beaches Motel & Cottages to my friends as well. Can you tell I enjoyed my stay? :-)

I spent three very enjoyable nights at The Beaches Motel. It was clean and convenient to shops, with a nice little pool, and just over a mile from Wells Beach. I brought my bicycle with me and was easily able to cycle to the beach every day. It is a small, family run motel, with a pleasantly old-fashioned feel to it. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It's on the main road (route 1) but traffic noise wasn't a problem. I had a room with a kitchenette which was nice as I was able to make my own food on a couple of nights. Eating out in the area can become expensive. Good value for the price.

Room Tip: The cottages are a bit more roomy, private and further from the road.

My wife and I were looking to get away up to Maine for a few nights, but we didn't want to board our dog Romeo who is our rescue from Aruba and just over a year old. I did some research on line and came across The Beaches, so I decided after reading all the great reviews to give it a shot. I have to say, if you are looking for a place to vacation and bring your dog, this is the best place! We rented one of the cottages for three nights and we will definitely be back. The owners Judy and Joe were over the top accommodating and Judy’s grandson Connor was working hard and awesome as well! We ended up staying a fourth night and enjoyed another beautiful day by the pool! Awesome place, awesome people...can’t wait to go back...thank you for an awesome time!!

We decided last minute to getaway for a few nights with our pup and choose this motel due to being dog friendly .We were thrilled with our choice super clean very quaint and most if all very dog friendly .We loved the pool and the swings to sit on in the evening .Property is so well kept , when I say room was spotless that's an understatement they do everything during Covid 19 to make check in safe and easy .I want to especially say I watched the owners son who I was told by his dad was responsible for cleaning the rooms never stop the whole time we were there what a work ethic this young man has that's says something about this establishment being a family run businesses .We can't wait to return and this time rent a cottage .

My folks recommended this place and we are loving it! The owner was very helpful regarding places to explore with our dogs. I love that they are dog friendly and that our dogs could experience this with us. It's so quaint and quiet too. The cottage is clean, and so is the pool. The owner has taken COVID precautions seriously which put our minds at ease during this pandemic. We have a kitchenette in our cottage that we've been utilizing. It's even stocked with utensils, pots and pans. The bed is super comfortable, and we have a nice tv too. We have a little screened in porch I've been loving, and also some lounge chairs outside. We are in the middle of so many fun things to do. This is an amazing place to relax, I highly recommend it.
