When we arrived, we were excited because of the pretty view, the fact that the hotel rooms were actually suites and each had a mini deck. However, the room smelled like an old pinesol scent. Granted, it was humid and the room was closed off. But, it smelled old and even though it obviously was cleaned, I felt dirty. We...

We spent september 5th to 12th in a deluxe cottage and we were delighted. Weather was very hot but the cottage remains cool and comfortable with the AC. It was pleasant to come back from the beach and relax at the immaculate clean pool. This is not our first time there and certainly not our last one either.

We had been booked into another cottage/motel and left, which is described in another review. This place was recommended by Hampton Inn and Suites which had no vacancies and I am so glad . We had a great stay, The...

The Garrison is set on a breathtaking hillside that overlooks the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge and Webhannet River, with the ocean in the far distance. The grounds have a direct view and the motel buildings themselves are set perpendicular to it, so you get the view of the waterfront by sitting outside of your room on the communal balconies. Unfortunately,...

Our annual vacation to Wells, Maine was awesome- thanks to The Garrison and the beautiful weather. The Garrison was very clean and the cottage was supplied with everything we needed for our stay. The view from our deck was amazing and peaceful. Justin, Angela, and staff made our vacation an memorable one!

We spent 4 wonderful days enjoying the food, ocean and sunshine in Maine. I have stayed at the Garrison before and although I didn't need a suite this time, the motel room was great. Lots of room, nice and clean and a great rate. I love being close enough to the beach, breakfast at Congdon's right across the street and...

We absolutely could not ask for a better place to stay! Clean, quiet, such a pleasure. The staff is so pleasant. They could not do enough to please us. We were close to everything, beach, shopping, and restaurants. We walked to the beach down Mile Road. We can not say enough. You will love it!

Have stayed here multiple times before and each time I am more impressed than the last. The views were fantastic. The rooms were wonderful and the cleanest ones I have ever seen. Everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff went out of their way to make our stay great. I would not hesitate to recommend this to everyone...
