“A great family spot!!”
Reviewed March 4, 2004

I cannot say enough about the Garrison. From it's historical front office to it's views of the wildlife preserve everything about it was fantastic. My family spent roughly 4 days in one of the Garrisons efficency suites and had a splendid time. There is so much to do in Wells and the hotel had many amenities that made staying "home" one of the days very pleasureable. There is both a pool and a hot tub as well as a playground and volleyball equipment. The staff were friendly and non obtrusive and we were so impressed that we will be bringing our extended family to the Garrison this summer (2004) and stayin for a week in one of the cottages. There is truly something for everyone at this wonderful establishment. From efficenciecs to suites to cottages-one place has "it all"!

Just came back from Columbus Day Weekend stay here - super clean, nice little white cottage perfect for one or two. Found this place at the last minute via my AAA tourbook, for a very low price-under $100 per night, after unsuccessfully trying to book a stay at my top choices ( which either were quoting me $ ranges in mid $100's-200 or had no availability). AAA gave it a 3 star rating& its well-deserved. No bugs, fresh & clean smell when you walk in,airy,white interior walls, clean carpet throughout LR & BR, ,soothing decoration w/rustic style,clean line furniture. Small but compact & comfortable. All their cottages have a front porch w/picnic table & extra chairs & flower boxes. Very well-maintained grounds. The Office-management people were the nicest I've encountered in these parts. The cottages are set back on the property from Route 1, down a sloping area w/ a view of the ocean far off & the Well Beach tidal basin on the foreground. There was a full moon during my stay & I got a beautiful view of it from my cottage. You don't get a sense at all that you're on a commercial area (Rt 1). I will definitely be returning-this time I may try their motel suites or other cottages-they have variously sized cottages & their motel suites appearted high end from the outside. Overall an excellent bargain.
