Wonderful hotel. It was clean, fairly priced and well run. The owners will do anything they can to insure that your stay will be enjoyable. The road is busy but it is close to everything. Lovely flowers and a very clean pool.

I recently spent a weekend getaway at The Beaches Motel & Cottages on the recommendation of my dad, who makes a point to stay here whenever he's in the area. Jess and Joe are simply brilliant! The rooms are comfortable and welcoming; the pool is cleaner than some of the 4-star properties I've travelled to; and the location is hard to beat unless you're swimming in coins à la Scrooge McDuck, and don't mind dropping a mint to stay on the waterfront during peak season.

They offer two types of accommodations; cottages, and motel rooms. We were a family of three, and the motel room was perfect, though we’d preferred the cottage layout, we were only staying two days and unable to secure one unless we spent the weekend. There’s plenty to do in the area. Between mini-golf, shops, restaurants, and the proximity to the beach, all the ingredients for a relaxing weekend getaway are right at your fingertips. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks for an amazing trip!

This is a Gem on the bustling road of ROUTE 1. A very nice young family running this small motel. Incredibly clean, and comfortable. You can not get a better price for the value. Beds comfortable and great shower. There was a small pool but I did not go in as I was at the beach most of the time. The owner Jessica could not have been nicer. She was incredibly welcoming and the best part is that you can bring your dog. Dogs are not allowed on the beach during the day but can go before 8 am and after 6pm which is a great time to walk the beach anyways...

Room Tip: there are small cottages that have kitchenettes and motel rooms

The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The cottage had everything except a phone.
There was plenty of hot water. The kitchenette was terrific and complete with everything we
needed. The room was spotless. Everything was clean, the bed was very comfy, no room
cleaning but we didn't need it. The dog was with us and it was only twenty five dollars extra
for the entire stay to have the dog. We stayed from Sunday to Saturday morning and loved it.
It is on Route 1 in the center of everything. We'd stay again if we go up again.

Room Tip: we had a cabin.

We make our annual trip to Maine every summer and a friend made a recommendation to this place last year and I am glad he did. We had a great room and very friendly staff. You can tell that the owner really cares about this property and the guests. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Maine and we will be back again for 2013!

I have been traveling to Wells, Maine for many years now, and this summer I tried something different, and I am ever so happy with that decision. Joe and Jess, the owners, make every aspect of the stay feel like a relaxing home. They very much so care about their guests far more than any other place I have ever stayed in the past. It seemed like there was no time in my stay that they did not have their door open to answer any of my questions, and they were constantly caring for the beautiful landscape surrounding the cottages. Their son was always so thrilled to be there and always ready to throw the football around with me for a while. I look forward to my visit next summer, Thanks again guys!

Room Tip: Be sure to make friends with the owners. They are delightfully personable people, and always have so...
