Reviewed June 4, 2013

Absolutely brilliant value for money but the one thing that surprised me was John and Cynthia. Both are brilliant hosts who made sure that we were comfortable. They were friendly to talk to and knowledgeable and most of all were more than happy to help. They went above and beyond for me and I am really grateful for what they have done for me. When I needed help with emails and calling internationally about my job, they helped me out. They gave me a ride to the Library to use the computers, and also helped out with sorting out arrangements to call the UK. If I stayed in a branded hotel I would not have got the help I needed that day. So advice to potential travellers. You get your value on the hotel rooms, but the main aspect of the stay was John and Cynthia. I wish them every success in their business.

A young chap with an old soul. You were a sheer pleasure to have as a guest. I miss your charming accent already. It's nice to meet folks who are on a new journey, as we are. We are putting our all into our guests experiences in making sure their needs are met. We are happy to assist even if it takes us momentarily off our regular path. Keep us in mind if you travel back this way again! Until then, happy trails to you...

Staff were very friendly on arrival. Excellent value for money. The room was clean and had everything we required. except perhaps a kettle and coffee/tea making facilities would have been nice.Exactly what we expected. Great place for a stop over.

Thank you for your tripadvisor reivew. One way we keep our rates low is to 'combine our efforts'. Rather than placing coffee/tea pots in all rooms, we offer complimentary coffee, tea and hot cocoa in the lobby during morning hours. Some of our accommodations (housekeeping cottages and most suites do have full kitchen facilities ... including coffee/tea pots :-) Thank you for choosing to stay with us when travelling through Wells, Maine!

Very clean was the first thing we noticed. People were very friendly and knowledgeable. Close to eneything you could want, or need. We did some antique shopping, some beach time, eating, and even a movie. We found a Flea Market in Arrundel, which is not a far ride, and that was
a great time. Lots of friendly people and treasures.

We have allready talked about a return trip.

Room Tip: Higher floor was perfect. We stayed in # 29, and it was just right.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on tripadvisor. It is nice for our housekeeping staff to hear when guests take notice and appreciate the cleanliness of our rooms. Nice to know that hard work pays off. Wells, Maine is certainly a great place to visit spring, summer or fall. We are open until October 20th and hope to see you again soon.

My son had a golf tournament at Old Marsh CC in Wells. It only 4 files from Coast Village Inn and Cottages to Old Marsh CC. We stayed for 2 nights, it was nice and quiet and relaxing. The place was very clean and neat.The rates are very affordable comparing other hotels nearby. The owners were very friendly and were there if you needed anything. This place is also close to a lot of restaurants , stores. and beach's. We definitely will go back

As new owners to The Coast Village Inn, it is music to our ears to here "We definitely will go back." We appreciate you taking time to let other families know of our convenient location within Wells, Maine. Nestled between both Kennebunk and Ogunquit gives our guests and even larger 'playing field.' We hope your son enjoyed his time playing golf at Old Marsh CC. We look forward to seeing you again!

One of the main attractions in deciding to purchase The Coast Village Inn in Wells, Maine was the fact that it offers such a beautiful landscape. There is plenty of inviting, outdoor space behind our accommodations for our guests to relax and unwind. It's not something you can see from the road; but it's our best kept secret! We do have some rooms which are 'pet friendly' so for guests looking to travel with ALL their loved one's - this might be the right fit for them. Thank you for staying with us!

This Inn is classic Maine. The ambiance is great, very relaxing. The rooms are cute. We look forward to booking a cottage for the family next summer. Great location! My husband and I enjoy antique shopping and there are several unique shoppes within walking distance of the Inn. Lastly the Inn is affordable, clean and a friendly staff.

We stayed one night in one of the rooms this past weekend. The price? INCREDIBLE! The room was very clean, and not at all cramped (which I expected because of the price). Check in was pleasant and easy, and the location was great for us (we wanted to be an easy drive from Ogunquit). Coffee in the lobby was fresh and hot at 6:30 am, and was half way decent. And the WiFi signal was strong. Grounds were pretty, and well maintained.

The only negative? The bathroom. It really could use an update. The sink was 70's pink. No regulator on the shower so water temps were inconsistent, and the spray was one of those 70's mists as well. The toilet stuck when I flushed (more than once) and I had to open the tank to jiggle it back into working order. I'd still stay here again, because of the rates and cleanliness, but I do hope a little modernization is in the plans for the bathrooms.
