It may not be by the ocean and is on a busy road. But it is a great place that my family and I stayed at for yrs and yrs. The service is wonderful and you just feel like you are at home. I have many many wonderful memories staying here. Recommend it to anyone going to the area.

We are a family of six and it's very hard for us to find accommodations for all of us. We had a two-bedroom suite. Two actually. We had to switch rooms after the first night, which we knew we would have to do because we booked so late. The staff moved all of our stuff for us. We were not... More

We have been coming to the Elmwood for about 10 years and we have not found another place quite like it. The kids beg to come to the Elmwood every chance they get. We have stayed in both the one bedroom and two bedrooms and have never been disappointed. You have everything you need right in your room. There are... More

My family and I had a very nice stay here for 2 nights. It was a last-minute, mid-week getaway and the price was completely reasonable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The outdoor pool was heated perfectly for my 4 year old. (There was also an indoor pool that we didn't use.). They showed outdoor movies during the week,... More

Condo type hotel with excellent service, very clean. Outdoor and indoor pools were a hit with my 2 kids. Close to the beach and some wonderful restaurants. Front desk sold discount tokens to the beach, and had an area map to help acclimate us.

This is the second year in a row we've stayed at Elmwood. This year we took our daughter and two grand daughters with us, so rented a two bedroom unit. We were not disappointed! Very pretty unit, very well equipped kitchen, and quiet. The beds were comfortable - we enjoyed our stay.

This place is very clean, from the rooms to the grounds, spotless! They have both a indoor and outdoor pool which is a nice amenity. They have live entertainment on the weekends, they also had mario kart tournaments for the kids. You are in close proximity to Wells, Drakes Island and Ogunquit beaches.

Rooms weren't bad and had plenty of space in them and the pools were warm, but besides that there wasn't much to do there. Good location kept it central to everything from Kennebunk to Ogunquit, and the trolley stops right out front.

Joe, It looks like we may not have impressed you as much as we may have hoped! Although we admittedly don't have acres upon acres of grounds here at the Elmwood, we are very proud of our grounds and work very hard to maintain our landscaped areas. We hope to see you again in the future. Scott DeFelice More
