Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stumbled upon this newly-renovated, little gem of a place with accomodations to meet everyone's needs either in with one of the rooms which is very comfortable (ours had the BEST water pressure ever and a super-comfy bed!!!) or one of the little cottages for a throw-back to vacationing in Maine during the 1950s (but with modern conveniences like big, new, flat-screen TVs and great AC!). This is truly a wonderful, family-owned business being run by people who take tremendous pride in their new venture. I would recommend this place hands down!!! It's a real bargain and we will be back but with friends next time!

You can tell the people who took over this place put a ton of time and effort into making this a top quality hotel. Our room was new/clean and the staff was excellent. We utilized the outdoor space to bbq and hang out side and we were minutes from the beach. All in all a great time!

this motel was right on the main road close to all restaurants shops and beaches. the room was a standard double room. it was very clean and pleasant in appearance. it had a mini fridge,coffee maker and microwave. The pool was clean and easily accessible and the front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing to consider when booking is that there are 2 levels and being on the first floor you can definitely hear those staying above. I would stay here again. The price was good and accomodations were clean and convenient.

Room Tip: second floor rooms will not have overhead noise from other guests.

America's Best Value Inn & Cottages in Wells, ME was a great stay for my family, friends and I. First the owners and staff are very friendly and accomodating. Second, due to recent renovations (complete I believe) the place looks brand new and does not have any unpleasant motel odors. Friends, family, and I stayed for 3 days and the Inn was one of the highlights of our vacation. Great Place. Very Affordable. I will definitely recommend and stay there again!

Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Have been staying here for many years when it was the Midway and the new owners have done a wonderful job with the renovations and are very pleasant. From the time I called to make a reservation to checking out, it was nothing but a pleasant stay and a great value.

Well... Felt a little like bates motel. One of the cheaper ones on border of ogunquit. Some of the aspects of the rooms have been updated. Carpet beds tv etc... My wive blew out electric with hairdryer!! Get to use old fashion lock and key locks! Nice pool on premises, most of staff also lives on premises. You can BBQ as there are several grills to use. The breakfast place across the street gives a discount and the food is really well prepared with a clean dining room with a very country
feel. Overall descent hotel with a bunch of little annoyances that I can tolerate for a 3 night stay.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our competitive prices. We try to be reasonable especially during the summer months.

We do realize because the property is a little bit older structurally wise, that things like blowing the circuit may occur. We appreciate that you allowed our staff to handle the little annoyances over your 3 night stay!

Thank you for taking your time to share your feedback. I am surprised and disappointed to hear that the staff was rude to you. If you'd like to share more details on what specifically happened, I would be more than happy to look into it.

Regarding getting your towels at front desk: There are times where the front office is extremely busy. Since we are a family owned/operated business it is difficult to leave the office unattended outside of houskeeping hours. We apologize for the inconvenience but if we were not as busy we would have walked and delivered them to your door.

We do not advertise that we have wi-fi in our rooms. Wi-fi is available in the office area. Our property is fairly large, and although we have some access points around the property we understand that the signal is not strong. We have plans in the near future to invest in the equipment and installation for network coverage over the 45,000 square feet area.
