“We only wish our stay was longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2011

We were so pleased with our accommodations. We didn't expect a living room, full sized kitchen, full bath and a large bedroom. It was like a small apartment. It was one of the cleanest places we've stayed. We used the indoor pool, which was nice. On one night of our stay, a movie was played outside on the lawn. The hotel is very close to some good restaurants and a grocery store.

Every year in November my friends and I book the Elmwood around Veterans day for a girls shopping weekend - the package they offer is great! You CANNOT beat this deal! We love the Elmwood so much that we just went in March just for another getaway - the staff is great & the cleaning people are soooo friendly!

So so glad we ended up stumbling on the Elmwood! We drove up to Maine on a whim and decided to stay in Wells. The two bedroom condo was perfect, the price was incredible and both front desk clerks were super friendly. If I would have booked online elsewhere, we would have ended up with half the accommodations at a higher price. We didn't use the pool or sauna, but I checked them out and they looked clean and inviting. I wanted to take a cup of coffee down to the water, but found you couldn't really get there with the big piles of snow. I bet in the summer, it wouldn't be a problem.

This is the third time that we have stayed at this resort on Route 1 in Maine. It is very handy to Kennebunk, Wells, Ogunquit and even Kittery. Accomodations are condo units and ours was a 1 bedroom. The unit was well equipped (even down to the Lobster cooker), clean and adequately appointed. I wish their welcome supplies included paper towels and coffee filters but the wonderful lady at the office is more than willing to help with whatever she can. The package includes a $50 dinner certificate and a $12 breakfast certificate. Many restaurants are included but we went to the Maine diner for both meals...both excellent as always here. Elmwood is a great spot to use as a base for exploring the area and be sure to get some clams and lobsters to bring home and enjoy. As was recommended, we went to Herb's up the street where the prices were reasonable and the service great. As always, we enjoyed our stay at the Elmwood...not real pricey but very pleasant.

My wife and I have been visiting Wells for years. We usually are there in late June and right after Labor Day (those times are a little less crowded, but still good weather).

After trying several different places, we found Elmwood two years ago and haven't stayed anywhere else since then. Take advantage of the two-day packages. Great deal plus the dinner/breakfast certificates.

The accomodations are first-rate, the staff is friendly and attentive, the pools are terrific and it could only be improved by moving the entire complex next to the ocean (it's only a short drive to get there however).

We stayed in a deluxe 2 bedroom, which has a 2nd bedroom upstairs with a full bath and a 1/2 bath and bedroom on the 1st floor. We had to switch units during our stay since the same unit was not available for the full week. that was fine with us. The 1st unit, while decorated very nicely, smelled overpoweringly of mildew, which is the reason we kept the air conditioning on high the entire time. Problem was the a/c was only in the living room, no windows in either bedroom, so we had to keep both bedroom doors open all the time. 2nd unit also had a mildew problem but at least had windows in each bedroom.
also, beware - their cancellation policy is terrible. If you leave early and they rent the unit again you are still charged the full rate. In effect, they are getting paid twice for that unit. Never heard of any place else doing anything like this.
Stay away.
