We decided on a last minute getaway to the Ogunquit area. I've been going to Maine for over 20 years so I know what to expect from many of the motels/hotels in the area. They may look nice on the outside but Beware. This is why I knew what I was getting when booking the Hampton Inn in Wells. First off, the location is not on the water but it is an easy 5-10 minutes to the beaches. Our favorite is Ogunquit Beach. We were quite surprised to find that beach parking is now $25 a day. There are other parking options that are cheaper if you don't mind walking a bit farther or just take the Trolley.
I had booked a queen suite for four people. When I arrived, we were put in a corner King suite and provided with a cot. There was also a sofa bed. We were also given the option to switch to another room the next day. This room was huge and worked out better for our family. It was the size of two hotel rooms. One room had the king bed and bath and the second room came with a living room area & kitchenette. It had two TVs and lots of storage. We probably could have fit 5 cots in that room and still had plenty of room to move around. It was huge. It also had two zone air-conditioning. We like it colder, the kids warmer.
It's not a 4 star hotel so we did encounter a few problems but nothing that was not easily fixable by the attentive staff.
Good points - free breakfast (it's not gourmet but you should be able to find something); free cookies at night; coffee offered throughout the day (nice to grab after returning from dinner). They have a pool & whirlpool. Parking is free and easy to find even when the hotel is full.. The beds weren't bad and the towels were nice quality. Housekeeping is good. There is an internet center. Hotel is accessible to everything - CVS, food store across the street, good restaurants, beaches. Trolley stop out front. For the most part quiet.
Bad points - very expensive in Summer; showing a little wear and tear in the rooms. We encountered a few maintenance issues with the room.
Overall the good outweigh the bad. If you are familiar with Hampton Inns then you'll know what to expect. I wish I could find a 4 or 5 star hotel in the area. This is the closest I've found for our family. It's a good, safe choice in the area.
