If you want a good location in Wells yet peaceful, this is the place. Close to the supermarket and the beach. BBQs are available. The pool is warm ;-) But, if you NEED Internet access, this is not a good choice (as of summer 2016). WiFi is slow, inconsistent and frustrating.

The Garrison is a nice smaller motel, located centrally in Wells. We stayed in a king luxury suite. It was very spacious and more than adequate. The grounds are very nice, and the staff is very helpful. The rates are definitely reasonable. We will stay there again.

Stayed in a cottage on the property for a week. The place is well-kept, very quiet, and has a lovely view down toward Wells Beach and across a nature preserve. Lot of food options nearby. I was warned by the owner when making my reservation that the wi-fi in the cabins is not great if I planned to do anything...

They didn't have a room available in the motel part so we ended up taking an efficiency. We are now glad that we paid the extra money. The desk person was very friendly. I loved sitting out on our private deck having breakfast or coffee at night with the great views of the refuge and ocean. It was very quiet...

Great seaside hotel with both single rooms and suites. We stayed in a suite which was absolutely spotless. There was a small, but well-equipped kitchen, a great pool that didn't seem to get much use when I was there and plenty of views of the ocean. Very friendly staff! Can't recommend it enough.

I have been vacationing in Wells, Maine with my family for many years. We have looked at places up and down the coast off and on to compare them to The Garrison and none come close.

The location is great right across the street from Congdon's Donuts [YUM]. Beautiful scenery,nice clean pool but our room smelled! Shower slippery and floors uneven. Maybe a little remodel due. That being said, great location, great view,good parking.

If you are looking for a family friendly place that is convenient and close to the beach then the Garrison is the place for you. The rooms are large enough for 6 people. It is clean, has cable tv and a kitchen equipped with a stove, full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, bread toaster and coffee maker. The grounds are well...
