“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

I would highly reccomend Sea Mist Motel. I can not find a bad thing to say, price was great, staff was very understanding r/t a medical emergency. I was only booked Sun thru Wed and the staff went out of their way to accomadate my stay for 7 days. I felt very comfy in the room with a couch, flat screen tv, kitchenette and 1 bed. It was my "home away from home". Very clean rooms and grounds. What can I say about the hot tub and pool? "Just what the doctor ordered". My husband and I will return again and again. Thanks to ALL the staff for making my stay wonderful.
KC Ct.

We have just checked out of the Sea Mist in Wells Maine after a week of not so bad.. reading the reviews up until our arrival made us check in with an "it is what it is"attitude.. that served us well... the kitchenette is a fridge, microwave from the 1980's and a toaster.. We came prepared... hot plate.. fry pan and eggs.. omelettes in the morning and with the offering of charcoal barbecues on the property for use..(you provide the charcoal) we enjoyed steak, swordfish and lobster on the grill... cheaper then eating out and much more intimate.. would we return... well yes we would.. the traffic and tourist traps are a whole other story, however the hotel did us just fine.. (bring a mattress pad, the bed is a little uneven).. to end this review.. the room was clean, well placed in the midst of the activity and you could smell the ocean air.. what more do you want from a trip to maine other then a moose to serve you a cocktail..

We rented one of the oen bedroom cottages. Small, but more than enough for two plus one kid. Nice heated indoor pool, and a lot of place for our toddler to run around. With all the restaurants around, you don't really need the kitchenette, so you could settle for a motel room. Wifi did not always work.

Wells Beach was to be our anchor point to tour the coastline and towns of Southern Maine with an RCI week at the Sea Mist "Resort" Motel in a studio unit. We exchanged a 2 bedroom unit at Myrtle Beach, SC for this unit. Do not bother visiting here if you have any expectations for a comfortable, relaxing, accomdating room. It is by far the worst unit we have ever had. We stayed one night and left to head south to Philadelphia. If you plan to visit this area, do a longer search and find a better place. No matter what you think you save here, it is a waste of your money.

Room Tip: Read reviews of previous visitors.

DerryD, Manager at Sea Mist Resort Motel, responded to this review, August 1, 2011
The Sea Mist sincerely regrets the disappointment you felt upon arriving at our humble facility. You being an RCI exchange guests, we fully understand why you might have elevated expectations; some of the properties available through RCI are gorgeous, expansive and have many amenities! RCI also has several properties like ours, where the vacation is more about the destination rather than the motel room or lodging facility.
We work hard to ensure our guests have a comfortable stay; those efforts include trying to make sure our guests are informed of what they can expect from our facility. We offer a well maintained website full of pictures and information about our motel. Have an expanded description detailed under “Additional Information” on our RCI listing and for all our RCI guests we go a step further and mail/ or e-mail a confirmation with a detailed description of the facility.
It is true, our studio rooms are a bit small and our facility offers only a few Bells & Whistles (indoor pool, hot tub & free Wi-Fi). But to those that have explored the Southern Maine Coastal area we believe Sea Mist still offers great value as a clean and wholesome home base with enough facilities to save you from having to eat every meal out.
Thank you for sharing your opinion.

Had a great stay at this hotel in Maine for Columbus Day weekend. Simple clean hotel in a good location. Nice indoor pool during the cool weather.

Stayed over the Fourth of July weekend with my sister. Room was very small, beds hard and pillows flat! Everthing looked as if corners were cut drastically to save a buck. Bathroom very small and the tub so narrow ,it's fine for a baby. The $25.00 charge for not washing your dishes beats all. Do you really expect guests to eat from dishes washed by other guests> REALLY. SOme system could be worked out to have dirty dishes run through a dishwasher and returned to rooms.
The entrance into the area is a DANGER - absolutely no illumination to show the driveway to parking area. There is a tiny sign with perhalps a 60 watt for lighting, hidden by bushes , no street lights, nothing to assist in making the turn off busy Route 1. One evening, Neither my sister or I could find the motel driveway and I ended up on the front lawn. Definitely a precarious situation. Police take notice.
I found more negative than positives, so would never recommend this place.
