“Why The Elmwood?”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

First of all rated #1 in Wells for the past several years.

Secondly, it is our "go to" place for the past several years (after trying several other venues in the area).

For us, that says it all. The folks at Elmwood are very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are all well-appointed and clean as can be. The pools are terrific.

Away from the resort are Wells Beach (our favorite), Marginal Way, Kennebunkport, Perkins Cove and many other great spots to visit. Plenty of excellent dining options are close by, as well.

Great resort! Very well situated to beaches and restaurants. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The kids loved swimming in the indoor and outdoor pools. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a week. Very clean rooms thanks to Carlton.very friendly staff. We felt right at home here!, It was convenient having a full kitchen and living room . The pool was clean . They had music and movies on the weekends.Our family was able to stay in rooms near each other. We sat out at night on the porch and enjoyed it very much. The only thing we would suggest is a line in bathtub to hang wet bathing suits. We will go back next year!

Stayed recently at the Elmwood for a couple of nights on a family trip. Accommodations were very spacious, clean and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the kitchen was stocked. We experienced some difficulties with the garbage disposal the first night and they immediately offered us a new room. We chose to stay and the issue was resolved very quickly. It was great to be able to use both indoor and outdoor pools. The only thing that could have been proved was the air conditioning unit. It was quite loud and we couldn't have it in at night when we slept due to the noise. Other than that, would definitely return. You can catch a trolley from right in front of the inn for only $2/adult that will take you right to Kennenbunk and Kennenbunkport.

Stayed at Elmwood to attend a family wedding in Kennebunkport. Our Unit (Two Bedroom Suite) was spotless, spacious, and quite comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped.

Other extended family members also stayed in a few One Bedroom Suites of their own and those were just as nice and clean as our unit.

The children enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools and the playground. The bathroom/shower/sauna in the indoor pool facility was immaculate.

We were pleasantly surprised by the complimentary fresh popcorn and freeze pops offered during our stay.

Did not have a chance to enjoy the Outdoor movie, BBQ grill area, or take advantage of DVD movies but was impressed that there were so many amenities offered.

Front desk and cleaning staff were very friendly and pleasant. We were so impressed by the level of detail and care shown throughout the resort during our stay.

Was not really sure what to expect being our first time staying at Elmwood, but hopefully it won't be our last.

My boyfriend and I are from Connecticut, we were just taking a day trip and were not planning on staying the night. We were just driving around and exploring and right off the bat Elmwood caught our eye. It is absolutely beautiful from the outside, very well manicured and taken care of. Needless to say we went to check it out. The hostess was very sweet, she even lent us a key to go look at one of the rooms. Apartment style room, very homey. Living room with flat screen tv, kitchen with working stove and fridge, dishwasher, dishes and eating utensils, bathroom, king sized bedroom with A/C and another flat screen tv, and accessible wifi. The room was a steal at only $99/night. After we payed, the hostess went on to tell us what was around the area, what places to eat, what places to shop, and where the nearest beaches, grocery stores, etc were. Extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgable. The facility is equipped with both an indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a sauna. There was plenty of parking and the property itself was very spacious. Kid friendly as well, I noticed a play area in the back. Another thing we really loved is that they were flexible with our check out time, as we are out of state they gave us an extra couple hours to depart. Not a single complaint, would absolutely come back!

Nancy at the front desk went above and beyond the call of customer service when we called her from another local hotel that was way below par. Her husband Kenny also went above the call for maintenance when my daughter threw her towel and wallet up on the roof accidentally. Will always go back to the Elmwood with no hesitation. Great people and great property!
