We returned to this property after two years. They have made some nice upgrades. The floors have been done over in a laminate which lend to an overall cleaner feeling. The balconies have been done over with a very nice looking synthetic floor and the wooden dividers have been replaced with vinyl panels. The staff were quick to respond to loud music coming from a room. I don't mind if people enjoy their music but it shouldn't shake MY room. The ocean views from this hotel are unbeatable.

The first week in August, we had a pool-side room with a king bed, which was first door off stairs on the 2nd floor. With that being said, it was the best room to move into! Wish there was an elevator. Room was large and just a few steps away from the ocean. Beach was spacious compared to Long Island NY beaches. We lucked out with weather. Room service was "as needed" and perfect. Billy's Chowder House and Hobbs Harborside in Wells Beach and The Lobster Pound in Olgunquit were our favs. The Pool was large but wished it was heated as the nights were in the 50-60s. Relatives have been coming for 30 years. We bring pop-ups for the beach. High tides almost to the steps. We were there for a full moon which was cool!

Great basic hotel just steps from the Atlantic. The pool and pool area was wonderful and well kept. Bedding was very comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly and cordial. The hotel is a short walk from Forbes Restaurant and Take out. It was perfect for a 2-day getaway. Just pack a small cooler and go. Quintessential Maine!

This cute hotel is all about location!! We were lucky enough to book a king corner ocean front room the night OF our arrival in July no less! I called and booked it directly with hotel since it was 7:30pm and we wouldn't be arriving until 9:30pm. The nice woman on the phone just asked if we would be there before 10pm which wasn't an issue for us. Our room felt like we were on the beach. No need to bring chairs or umbrellas down. We could enjoy swimming in the ocean and walking, and then could sit on our balcony above all of the people on the beach! It truly was amazing! Having check out be at 11am was such a added bonus! We had plenty of time to walk and swim in the ocean and in the lovely pool on site. The room was surprisingly recently updated. I can't say enough about this place! It was wonderful. If we get to come back, I would absolutely book the same room hopefully on the 3rd floor. We were on the 2nd floor and it was just a bit noisy in the AM with the folks above us, but we were early risers, so not a big deal. There were so many seals to see at Wells Beach.

My family has vacationed at this motel for many years. You have the choice of using the pool or walking down the stairs onto the beach! The rooms are kept immaculate, the staff is very friendly & helpful! There are great restaurants only minutes away.

We loved everything about our stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms, located right on the beach with a pool as an alternative. Walking distance to restaurants and a short drive to get groceries and other stuff. This was our 4th year coming and we will be back next year!!

The Atlantic Oceanfront Motel offers everything you need for a beachfront stay! Each room has not only a Keurig coffee maker, but a good size mini fridge and microwave. (We love the option of not having to clean up and leave the beach just to eat.) It's clean and comfy with plenty of space. The staff are very friendly and helpful!

Staff was friendly but the motel was quite expensive for what you received. No elevators, three stories, balconies were small with limited seating. Pool water was at a good temperature but area lacked extra towels. Bothered by the fact that they seemed to wonder why I wanted a receipt when we checked out, Thought at least one of the people at the desk would have inquired how our stay was but neither of them seemed to be concerned. Our previous stay was a better experience. May look for a different place for next year that values a repeat customer. Just not a "gotta go back there" place for me after this time there. Perhaps they have so much business they do not value repeat customers. I hope not.
