Moody's Motel & Cottages

Traveler (5)
Room & Suite (12)
Pool & Beach (10)


Located just 175 feet from Wells Beach (a short 1 minute walk), we're situated on a quiet seaside street, off the beaten path, but close to area restaurants and shops. You have all the convenience, but without the bustle. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Crescent Beach is immediately across the street and the property borders beautiful salt marshlands to the west. The grounds are quiet and safe for children. Lounge chairs and picnic tables are located all around our grassy lawns. There are nice views in all directions, and the air is cool and breezy. You can watch the birds and deer, sunsets over the marsh and sunrises over the ocean. At night you can hear the ocean. We have chairs for the beach, outside showers for rinsing off when you return from the beach, and coin operated laundry. Most days are breezy from the ocean, but we have fans in each room.

Is it possible to rent a room or cottage for less than a week during the summer?
Hello! Thanks for your question. Yes, during any part of the summer, you can book a motel room for any amount of nights except the following weekends are three night minimum stays (May 15, 16, 17), (May 22, 23, 24) and (September 4, 5, 6). As far as cottages, we rent only Saturday to Saturday beginning May 23rd and ending September 12th. You may rent a cottage for a lesser amount of nights from April to May 23rd, and again from September 12th through our closing on October 12th. If you're interested in coming during the summer months, I think a motel room would be your best option. For any further questions, please let me know. You can also look at our website for more information if you google Moody's Cottages. Thank you, Lindsey

is it a swimmable beach outside or do you have to walk?
You just have to walk across the street about 200 feet to get to the main entrance of Wells Beach. It's a quick 1-2 minute walk and you can swim in the ocean.

"2nd floor is usually quieter. Decks have tables and chairs to enjoy if you want to just sit outside for a spell to relax."
"Room 13 has great views"
"There is no air conditioning. Rooms in the back face a beautiful marsh."
"Very comfortable house. So great for a family, each bedroom has their own bathroom and the open concept kitchen-dining-living area is conducive to family time to prepare meals and playing games, and just plain sitting around to visit."
"Handicap rooms are available"
$99 - $210 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
