Stayed there twice now and both times we were very happy. Nice view from the second floor suites. Rooms are set up nicely. I like the Murphy bed queen better than a pull out sofa any day. My dad was real comfy and happy. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Prices were very reasonable. This will continue to be a regular place for us. Congdon's doughnuts is right across the street for breakfast.

Room Tip: They are putting in new A/C's, the old ones worked great but were noisy. Suites upstairs have go...

Thank you for your nice comments. The Murphy beds are very comfortable. We have 10 brand new La-Z-Boy queen sleeper sofas being delivered this week and the rest are on order.

2011 was the first year we stayed at the Garrison Suites and we're planning a return this year. The property is immaculate and the location is great, too. Close to Rachel Carson Refuge, has a view of the beach, and pretty much anything else you'd want to do is within a short drive. We highly recommend this location.

We rented a beach cottage end of Summer 2011. From the moment we paid the full amount of location (one month prior our arrival) and an extra 500 $ deposit, the owner establishes all kind of restrictions: if you cook lobster in the house and the odor remains after your departure you loose your deposit. The deposit has been returned 2 weeks after the end of vacation. The owner kept a part of it, even if the house has been perfectly cleaned.

All furniture was very old in the cottage. No air condition.
We had to evacuate beacause of Irene storm. No help at all from the owner. Very mean attitude.

This review is not related to the Garrison Suites.
The Garrison Suites does not rent beach cottages, does not take security deposits, has never, ever been evacuated due to a storm and all of our vacation cottages have great air conditioning.
The person who wrote this review was referred to someone else who rented beach cottages because we did not have what she wanted.
According to the people she rented from, there was a hurricane at sea during her stay. There was no evacuation. She asked the owners for her money back because she was concerned, and they refused. She was returned $400 of her $500 deposit because they said, she left the place filthy.
She was unable to get satisfaction from them so she is taking out her frustrations on us because we referred her to them. This review does not belong here.

We took a shot when driving by, and were very pleasently suprised. Great variety of accomidations, from single rooms, suites and 1 & 2 bedroon cottages. Rates were very reasonable, which was a bonus.

We stayed at the Garrison Suites over the Columbus Day weekend in one of the efficiences. The location is delightful, and the accomodation has all that is needed for two people with the added plus of a daily supply of excellent coffee for the perculator. We brought all our own food, and were able to cook it either in the microwave oven or on the heater rings. The view is excellent over the inlet and out to the homes at Wells Beach, a great sight either first thing in the monning with the rising sun over the water, or the glow that seemed to hang in the sky from the reflective glow of the setting sun. A great place for a get away weekend.

My wife and I just stayed at the Garrison Suites from Sept 17th till The 24th we stayed in the suites they are beautiful and what a view of the salt marsh and the ocean in the distants.Ours had a king bed with a great kitchen to do some lite cooking with a full refrigerator. The whole complex is immaculate finally manicured grounds with a brand new pool area. The staff there are wonderful and make you feel right at home.
