“Great stay by the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2010

I have just returned from Wells Beach, ME and a 4 day stay at the Atlantic Motor Inn. Great location right on the beach and wonderful staff. Our oceanfront room with balcony was spotless. I especially appreciated the double sheeted comforter on my bed. My family had two other rooms, a corner king with very large balcony and a suite. Both were spacious and comfortable, and yes, very clean! They also provide free WiFi. Watched the sun rise in the morning, and looked out over a glorious, star studded sky at night with a bonus of a full moon. All in all, an outstanding stay!

We had a fantastic two days at the beach. Nothing better than being able to listen to the waves all night long. Get up in the morning walk 10 steps to the sand and go for a walk! We sat on the beach and when we got hot we enjoyed the inn's clean, warm pool! Had a great time!!!

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.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2009

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.
