We stayed here for two nights but hadn't made prior reservations, or we would have stayed longer. Hotel is Extremely Clean! It sits right on the ocean, just walk down the steps. Pool area was very nice and pool and patio area was very clean! There were lots of great restaurants close by to drive to and a few shops... More

We have been coming to the motel for years & consider it our Maine home away from home. The location is perfect...right on the beach, close to restaurants & shopping & just a short drive to Portland or the outlets in Kittery. We always get an oceanfront room which is worth the extra money. You can't beat the beautiful view... More

We had the best time! The beach is right down the stairs. The hotel has only 35 rooms so it never feels crowded. The beach is awesome. A few souvenir shops, a playground and an arcade are within walking distance. The room was 100% clean. The pool was heated and very comfortable. The mini fridge and microwave oven were nice... More

Booked a 4 night stay. Was immediately pleased upon arrival to see how close to the ocean our room was and high tide brings it even closer. Beach is nice and convenient. Swam in the pool which was refreshing. We were in a lower level room with a view of the ocean. With the windows open at night you could... More

Booked a one night stay again here at the Atlantic Oceanfront Motel. We stayed in a king suite - merely fifty steps to the ocean. Room is clean, and very comfortable. On site parking is great. Not quite peak season yet, but Wells was very busy this weekend with warm temperatures and nothing but sunshine.

First time here and it was off season so the rate was fantastic for the room we had. At high tide, the water comes up to the sand beneath your balcony! The beds were a bit too soft for me but I didn't care...I couldn't stop staring out the sliding doors at the ocean.

We had room 110, third floor, corner King facing out to the beach and ocean. Wow is all I can say! It was perfect, with a balcony and all, not many people staying there at this time, so it was quite quite.

Not out-of-this-world fancy, but clean, comfortable and relaxing. A great value for the price. On-site parking was helpful, staff was friendly. No elevator, so keep this in mind if you have a problem with stairs.

We liked this small motel. No snack machines or dining area. No elevators so have to use stairs. The location is near several shops. Not like the bigger hotels but offers enough to make us want to come back.

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight to celebrate our anniversary. The staff was friendly and accommodating. You couldn't ask for a better oceanfront view. The balcony was right over the water at high tide. Super clean and well maintained. Walk down the stairs to the sandy beach. Centrally located. Great parking in the ground-level garage. We will...
