We have now gone to Ne'r Beach for a couple of years. We often go to Wells on a whim if the weather is good. We are able to get 1 or 2 nights during peak season. They are helpful in making sure our needs are met. Keep up the good work !!

Room Tip: They have many different rooms available. We were able to get the 2 room apt for a long weekend with...

We are more than happy to fit you in for one or two nights during the summer season when we have the availability. Its hard sometimes to get away for more than a day or two and we understand that. If you can only be here for a couple of days we want you to enjoy yourself the entire time your here. Glad to have you stay any time your in town.
Thank You

Stayed there for a second time recently and rate it somewhere between average and very good.
As for location it's very good, one half mile to beach and next to a good place for breakfast and sandwiches "Pine Tree Farm"
The grounds are very good, nice pool and sitting area with gas fireplaces and an outdoor kitchen area that is very clean and has everything one would need including large pots for lobster cooking.
Our room had a small table and two chairs, a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave.
Housekeeping and maintenance could have been just a little more thorough.
Everyone was very pleasant to deal with
We will stay there again.....CHIVE ON.

We booked this Motel last minute before a holiday weekend. when we got there our key was not on the office door as promised so I called the number on the door and the property manager was there in a few minutes and was very apologetic. He gave us an upgrade for our troubles....it was late and we were tired. the room was very clean and had updated carpeting and nice little fridge, toaster, coffee maker. the pool was fantastic and they had grills and tables for outdoor cooking. the landscaping was really beautiful and they even grow vegetables that the guests are welcome to pick.
there is a great cafe for breakfast right next door and its a 1/4mile walk to the beach. i would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms away from rt 1 are quieter

We went to Maine for the night and was initially going to camp,but because I forgot our tent poles I was out seeking a hotel room! This was the closest and with vacancies so as hesitant as I was I stopped and got a room. The pictures online make it look like a complete run down dive but to my suprise it wasnt that bad...or atleast room 8 wasnt!! While yes it could use some updating as far as rip wood paneling off the walls,and replace vents so it doesnt look nasty.Otherwise it was clean,the bed was comfortable,the bathroom clean,and the tv and rugs looked new.The grounds are nice and well kept and are only right down the street from the beach. My only real complaint was the ac was rattling!

Room Tip: Im not sure on other rooms but room 8 was decent!

Lovely lady at front desk! Great rate! But come bedtime and I drew back the coverlet, I found hair on sheets. Tried other bed and more hair on sheet. So no. Not giving this a recommendation. And it looks so nice from the road. And it stunk to high Heaven of cigarette smoke. I'm not a complainer so l put up with it. Won't be stopping here next year for sure.

We are now under new management. We as the management would like you to know that this type of situation is unacceptable to us. We value your opinion as our guests and want you to always feel that our rooms are clean. We hope you will try our motel during your next visit to our area.

Our family has been booking our 7-10 day summer vacations for over the past 6 years and could not be happier. We tried other places in Wells, and Ogunquit but found that they were missing the 'personal' touch. We weren't interested in a 'fast food' type hotel that didn't give us the time of day. Nancy and Mike O'Brien, the owners, are there to please their customers and to build lasting relationships. We have tried a variety of rooms at their motel, as our family grew, finally settling on one that is set back on the property allowing us both the privacy of our own space and close enough to others to make new acquaintaces, as we have built lasting friendships with many. Their pool and surrounding grounds is beautifully maintained, linen service is prompt, clean and courtious, the BBQ's, picnic tables, and all the utensils you will ever need, add another dimension that the chains do not have allowing for informal dining and relaxation. Not to mention the money you are saving not going out to restaurants every evening. The O'Briens have been more than helpful in directing us to places and services that they themselves use as locals. I travel the country regularly, have lots of frequent travel miles which I could use with the big name chains, but choose to part with my own money in staying at N'er Beach. If you want elevators, paved sitting areas instead of grass, the struggle to find chairs around the pool, and a 'business traveller' type atmoshpere, then stay at a major chain. If you want a 'homey' feel to your stay, with friendly guests, open grassy areas, and walking distance to local treats like ice cream and mini golf, then the N'er Beach is the best bet. The beach itself is within minutes walking distance or you can load up the car or van with the chairs, coolers, rafts, etc and take a short drive and park at the beach. I highly recommend N'er Beach. See you this August.
