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 offerings they have from simple hotel rooms to suites to full cottages will serve the varying needs of any vacationer. The view from... More

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 need to a nice, quiet, gorgeous place to stay The Garrison is great. We had never been to Maine and booked a room "sight unseen". We held our breath as we drove in and we all were just blown away by the beautiful view. If you check out their website, the view of the ocean really does look... More

We have stayed here for two weeks in May for years. It's quiet, the location is good, the rooms are clean, the owners friendly, and the maids efficient and so nice. Two restaurants are within easy walking distance. We enjoy sitting on the little porch with a glass of wine enjoying the view.

I stayed at the Garrison while in Maine for a wedding celebration. An unauthorized charge of $50 for burnt bedding was put on our credit card upon leaving. There was no one to greet us upon check in (a key was left in our open room) and no one made an effort to meet us during our stay. In an... More
