The timeshare units are just as advertised--a small hotel room with small kitchenette. It's nice to be near south Maine coast, but realize it is a short drive to any beach or hiking area, and traffic on the U.S. 1 entrance is heavy. We selected because it is one of the very few timeshares that permit pets, which is appreciated. The pet fee was not appropriate. It is certainly OK to charge a pet fee, but the $25/week + $20/day for daily cleaning is not appropriate when the resort will NOT provide daily cleaning because of Covid. I asked for and was denied not being charged for a daily fee for cleaning when the cleaning is not provided. Ridiculous.

An RCI property. It’s not fancy or a mega resort, but if your touring the Maine coast and an RCI member it’s fine to stay at. It was clean, towel exchange was easy. Your located real close to all the quaint towns to visit. Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, and many others. It’s an easy drive from Boston Logan Airport If you want to come in that way to go to Salem, Gloucester and those great Massachusetts towns. Some really good restaurants and ice cream places in Wells. The beach area is not great for those looking to have “beach day” Go to Ogunquit for sandy beaches. My only suggestion would be to add a table, or hooks or shelves on the wall by the bathroom area so that there is something to place your toiletries on. Bathroom is small so that extra space would be great.

When I first saw the ratings and the price, I booked the hotel. When we got there the grounds were very nice but the room was old, smelly and dark. It was clean, but it was so old, it almost didn't matter. The beds were the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept in and I lived in a college dorm. There were only 3 of us but there was no room. I felt like I was jumping over the beds. We ended up having to leave early because of the hurricane. I understand that they can't refund you, but it would have been nice if they offered something as it is completely out of our control.

831jaclyna, Very sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with your visit. We consider Sea Mist to be an economy class motel and we price it accordingly. We strive to offer value for dollar by providing a few extras and clean accommodations. Bedding is always subjective, we receive just as many compliments as complaints. We have completed a number of upgrades in recent years including a new pool, hot tub, sun patio and playground. We have once again turned our main focus to the rooms (unfortunately we can not do much about their size...that was dictated by the Town of Wells planning board). We have completed sixteen rooms to date with new furniture & flooring but were handed a set back with Covid. We are hoping to complete another fifteen rooms next year. We are sorry that you needed to cut your stay short. You did reserve the room and we held it for your use. Most people stayed and weathered the storm here.
