Majestic Regency
Ranked #17 of 28 Hotels in Wells
Reviewed August 16, 2009

I've been going to the Majestic Regency for years. Staff is friendly and the rooms are more than adequate. We're not talking luxury but we are talking good value, clean rooms, lots of cable channels, well-maintained grounds, free continental breakfast (great apple fritters BTW), and a very good pool. We keep going back because the motel has a tennis court right next to the pool...we play tennis all day, go for a swim, and catch the trolley into town for dinner. The MR is not the newest, nor is it the most luxurious. But it has a great vibe, friendly staff, great facilities, and it's family friendly (as well as welcoming to those without families). Stay here - you won't be disappointed.

" . . . and pulled out a plumb." That's how we felt about our 2 night stay at the MR. We happened upon it after pricing other rooms a little south. Was a little skeptical at first, but front desk personnel (Jessie, I think) allayed our fears with her gregarious personality, and allowing us to look at room before booking. MR was everything we needed and more. We discovered that the trolleys make their turnaround in the horseshoe - one headed north and other headed south. It was great!!! The trolley drivers were a wealth of info as well!

Small, dirty room with so many makeshift fixes that you didn't really trust anything or want to touch anything. The bathroom was a disaster that made noises and leaked all night. Lots of cosmetic issues that made it feel even less inviting. I didn't even want to take a bath and my elderly parents felt so unsafe they barely slept. Noisy with next to no amenities--even the tiny TV was bad!

Basically a bait and switch. "Seven Acre Resort" might somehow be literally true, but it was a measly pool with a terrible breakfast and unappealing grounds. The "free wireless internet" turned out to be "only if your room is close enough to the main office". The staff person that checked us in played clueless so nothing felt like it could be dealt with, even getting another room.

We reserved online at $147 but the same room would have been available walk-in for $99 and no adjustment could be made (though the price was advertised on a billboard).

Towels smelled funny, coverlet on bed was scary. It was just horrible!

Not a bad location, but no better than a dozen others nearby. Save yourself the trouble!

The room was simple, clean and roomy. We loved having a fridge, table and chairs and a coffeemaker. What little service we needed was great. We loved the grounds. The pool looked inviting, but we didn't get there. The location was excellent; between Ogunquit and Wells, but not too far from York ... and near several places to shop!

The thing we liked least was the smell of the room initially. The cleaner had a strong odor, which we did not appreciate. It was, however, a clean smell. The toasters in the eating room, were too slow!

The breakfast was fine, fresh goodies from a local place; cereal, bagels, toast and English muffins! Coffee, milk and juice!

Certainly not luxury but when looking for somethng affordable, it's great!

My husband and I and our 3 boys needed a weekend away. We found the MR online and we're not usually too picky about things but I don't think we'd ever stay here again. We rented the 2-bedroom suite with kitchenette. $110.oo plus tax. Way too much $$ for what we got! The refrigerator was nice to have. There was food in the sink when we got there (gross!!!), the "living room" has an old couch and a tiny 19 inch t.v. not facing the couch. We had to pull the kitchen chairs over to all watch t.v. Not very "homey" or comfortable. (it was raining most of our stay). One very dim light in each room and that's it for lighting.
The bathroom is TINY! And no outlets for hair dryers, etc. No space to get ready. Shower was clean but had holes in the wall where the plumbing is connected. scary.
Walls are very thin, at night we could hear everything going on in rooms on both sides. Until late...11:00. (that's late for those of us with kids!) People out on the tennis court until very late also. Too loud to sleep. Basket ball is just a backyard hoop. Tennis was nice. picnic area is nice. Pool is ok.
Locks on doors didn't work in rooms. AC was very noisy!
Breakfast was good. Fresh fruit and/or oatmeal would make it nicer. Bagels, english muffins, toast....but if you want butter or jelly on them it's a big jar that everyone has been dipping into. Not individual packets. Pretty unsanitary. Same with sugar for coffee. yuck.
The kids had fun with all the outdoor stuff there was to do, nice grassy area where they could play catch. We didn't use the trolley but lots of people do. The office staff was pleasant and helpful.
I agree with others...the photos make it look WAY nicer than it actually is. It doesn't even look like the same place when you drive up.
We'll pay the extra $ and look for a nicer place next time.

This was the third time we have stayed here, so obviously we enjoyed. Going back in two more weeks. If you are looking for a clean, safe friendly place this is where to go. It is not fancy but a home like atmosphere. a bit run down -yes- but not in a bad way and again I have always found it clean. the trolly stop is another major incentive.

We decided to make a spur of the moment trip to Ogunquit for the weekend. Tried calling this place all evening/night to make a reservation over the phone but kept getting a busy signal. Made our reservations online instead and hoped that they were still in business when we got there since we couldn't get through by phone.

Upon pulling into the place I looked at my wife and said "it looks like a throwback to the 1950's...like something from Dirty Dancing". We entered the office where the owners were apologizing to an elderly couple for the condition/smell of the room they had rented them and offered them another room. We gave them our internet reservation form and something came over my wife and she asked to see the room first before we paid for it.
We had reserved the "Deluxe King Suite" because we wanted a bigger room with a couch to sit on at night while watching TV (the same room pictured on their website).

Upon entering the room we both looked at each other and just laughed. Deluxe King Suite?? I said. What a joke!! The room was very dingy and immediately gave me a dirty feeling (like it should be rented by the hour)....wallpaper was peeling off the walls, spiderwebs with live spiders in them on the ceilings, nasty bathroom, that nasty, hair standing up on the back of my neck, red velvet couch and an odor that we just could not describe. Now don't get me wrong here, we are not some snooty, highclass people; we just wanted a nice clean room for two nights, a place to sleep after being a tourist all day. Well, this was NOT the place. They hired a wonderful trick photographer to take the pictures for their website.

If you are looking for a place to crash after partying all day/night and don't care about the condition of your room, just the price, than this is the place for you. If you are looking for a room that your wife and kids won't be afraid to sleep in, then I suggest you try one of the other hotels/motels/B&B's down the road.
