“Great Place for a Girl's Weekend”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This was my 4th stay here. It is a great place for the group of old friends I get together with for weekends. It is centrally located for shopping in both Portland or down in Kittery at the outlets. There are plenty of restaurants within quick driving distance. Bonus, there is a Dunkin Donuts right across the street! We love the fact we have plenty of space to just kick back and relax. The staff is very friendly and we've always been happy with the quality and cleaniness of the condo. I've only stayed in the off-season and during those periods, the rates are great.

I am a believer in tripadvisor and the reviews for the Elmwood were spot-on! We arrived late evening and found our check in information in its designated place. The suite was a one bedroom; livingroom, kitchen area (K-cup w/cups provided), bath and bedroom. There aren't necessarily "views" from the rooms but we spent our evenings there after exploring the area during the day. We did watch the snow from our livingroom window in the morning, which was nice! Room was extremely clean and the staff could not have been more accomodating or friendly.

We got a great rate on the room for the first weekend of Christmas Prelude. The drive to Christmas Prelude was no more than fifteen minutes and after experiencing the crowd I was grateful that we didn't stay in the middle of the madness!

Class act with great service and rates is hard to find these days and the Elmwood Resort Hotel has it all!

Came up to Maine for the Christmas Prelude and stayed here with my wife. The room was very homey and had everything we needed to be very comfortable. Rooms are very clean and housekeeping takes pride in making sure your room is kept up. We did't have a chance to try the pool or sauna but we wished they had a hot tub. All the rooms are owned by different people so no two are alike. Our room 123 has a journal of all the people that have stayed here that was put here by the owner. We thought it was a cool idea and enjoyed reading it. All in all I would recommend staying here ....you will be happy with your choice

We ordered a package from the Elmwood website which got us 2 nights in a 1-bedroom condo, a 50 dollar gift card to a choice of several restaurants in town for dinner, and a $12 gift card to a choice of several different restaurants for breakfast.

The condo was nice and homey. Everything was clean, the kitchen was very handy even though we did not cook, and the bedroom was comfortable. Even more impressive was the 50 inch flat screen television which was especially handy when it came time to watch football.


The front desk staff was also very friendly and helpful.

The only thing that was a little annoying was the housekeeping staff -- we left at about 8:30 AM after our first night staying and returned at about 3 PM for a little down time before dinner. Housekeeping knocked on our door about 30 minutes later and asked if we wanted them to do their services. That's something I would have expected to have been done in the 6 and half hours we were out.

We have been going up to Maine for 12 to 15 years now. We've probably stayed at the Elmwood 10 times. It's like renting a small apartment. Living room, full kitchen, one, two or even a three bedroom option. Very clean and well furnished. The people are very pleasant and helpfull. They also have weekend getaways that are very reasonable.
There is plenty to do in the area. Great restaurants. Lots of shopping and beautiful scenery.

Room Tip: None of my stays were unsatisfactory. Even the lower level units were quiet. Multible bedroom option...

The staff are so friendly, and accommodating. We have 2 birthday's in September. We decided to celebrate this event at the Elmwood Resort. It was so clean and the accommodations were exceptional that it has become a birthday event. I always look for forward to September and my time shared for our birthdays at the Elmwood Resort.

We have been staying here for a few years. It's got a nice location, convenient to a lot of stuff. I believe each unit is individually owned so the decor varies but so far each one has been clean and well cared for as well as comfortable. The staff is friendly and it's just an all around good place.
