With the anticipation of spending a couple days on beach in Wells, ME, I became extremely disappointed in the Atlantic Motor Inn....
First: they didn't have any elevators..I wish I had known this when I made the reservation. We climbed 3 flights of stairs to get to our room that was overlooking the pool. Lugging our suitcases. The receptionist didn't offer an employee to help us with all our baggages.
Second: We had a room without a view of the ocean. It was very small and cramped. The bathroom was extremely tiny. The closet was small and the view of the ocean was peeking out of a slated window by the sink or the bathroom.
Third: We couldn't view the pool, if we opened our curtains people going by would look into our room. We had to keep the drapes closed and the lights on......
Fourth: The amenities were minimal. We had a half bottle of shampoo sitting on the back of the toilet seat when we arrived.
Fifth and final: My sister asked to have our room made up and the maid said they only make up the suites not the regular rooms. I did ask a maid to bring us clean towels. They were on our made up beds when we returned from our day in the sun.
My final final summation is if you are going to rent a room at The Atlantic Motor Inn, rent a suite. The suites are roomy with a lovely sitting area and a view of the ocean. Pay the extra dollars and enjoy the view.
