Stayed at the Atlantic for two days and nights.Ocean side,top floor,corner room.Fabulous.Although it was warm days,never needed tha air conditioner.The cooling,continuous sweet smelling aroma of the ocean did it's job.King size bed was comfortible and the nights were very peacefull.Left the screen door to the balconey open and the constant sound of the waves lapping the shore will surely put you to sleep.Courteous and helpfull staff and very clean room.Although there are no elevators,the Atlantic was definetley worth the stay.Will return!

We have stayed at The Atlantic Motor Inn several times and each time we've stayed we've been delighted. From the pleasant owners to the friendly staff to the fabulous "on the beach" location this is a superb vacation spot! Can't wait to return this coming season.

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.

Just returned from a girlfriend weekend at the Atlantic Motor Inn. We had a wonderful experience. I loved being just steps from the sand, as well as our private balcony.

Immaculate throughout, from the rooms to the heated pool. The staff was exceptional, especially Ruby in Housekeeping. She took such good care of us.

I would recommend this hotel, without reservation, for a perfect family vacation. While the hotel does not offer a restaurant, there are plenty of great choices within walking distance. Our room offered an apartment sized refrigerator, as well as a microwave and coffee maker with coffee provided. That was perfect, as we could have breakfast on our balcony and then hit the beach; literally steps away.

Stay here -you will not be disappointed.

We stayed for three nights at the Atlantic Motor Inn, at the end of July. Husband, myself, and 9 year old daughter. It was very clean, and the staff was very pleasant. The room is not fancy, but the cleanliness makes up for it.
Do your best to get a room with a balcony and ocean view, we didn't get one, but could see how nice they were.
There is plenty to do in the area, (for kids also).
It was not as close to Ogunquit as I thought it would be, although it was a quick trip down route 1. The beach was beautiful, and the sand soft. You can walk for what seems like miles up the beach, or just relax by the water.
Bring your own beach chair, and or blanket.

This hotel was fantastic. I only stayed one night but it was great, I'll defintely be heading back. The room and hotel overall is very clean. Its not like the usual outdated nasty beach motels its pretty nice. The main reason I stayed was for the balcony with the best view. Wells Beach is beautiful and I could have sat on the deck all day. Expensive, and a pain because you can not park in the lot until 12pm and there are no early check ins. Check in is 2pm. Check out is 11am, and there is not much parking in the area so it can be difficult. There are a few stores but not much around the area besides homes.

Staff very accommodating , carrying our suitcases, beach chairs, etc both to(at arrival) and from(when leaving)our room. Super clean rooms, with daily maid service, by caring personnel. Many extra in-room amenities(check them out on Atlantic Motor Inn site). We love the ocean view 24/7 from both our room and private balcony, with the beach just a flight of steps away. Many thanks from two older ladies. Booked for next year, before leaving for home.
