Our travel plans for Memorial Day had us staying at a couple of different places. We booked the Wishing Well for Sunday Night, we stayed in Yarmouth on Saturday Night. After leaving the motel we stayed at Saturday Night, with an indoor/outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, we were initially disappointed that the pool wasn't open when we arrived at the Wishing Well. So our first impression was "we will make the best of it."
Looking back I can not believe how wrong we would be. From that initial moment of disappointment everything went so right! We were immediately greeted by property manager John and the super sweet woman who cleans the rooms. They were so warm and welcoming. We immediately felt as though we were staying at a B&B or a friends house. There was no formal check in as the key was in the room and she was just finishing cleaning the room for us. We were early and it didn't matter to them they had the room all cleaned and ready by 1:00pm. John literally will bend over backwards to be of any assistance you need. He gave us a full property tour, even showing us some of the other styles of rooms and he allowed us to check out the cottage as it was vacant at the time. After looking at the cottage we are already planning on booking it for a few days this summer.
John gave us lunch and dinner recommendations and pointed us in the right direction for places to go and things to see. More importantly he allowed my girlfriend and I to stay in the room a little bit longer due to some rain showers that we didn't expect (we were on our motorcycle.) He was super accommodating and he made such a stress free day for us as we did not want to ride in the rain.
The rooms are clean and tidy. If you're looking for extravagant luxury go pay $450 a night. For what we paid we had very nice, very clean, well appointed rooms. Cozy is the word that I would use. The hardwood floors make the room feel clean and fresh. This place is perfect for the price. From what we saw in the cottage, this will be the perfect place for my girlfriend and I to bring our kids this summer. It has a full kitchen and a nice sized living room.
The common areas were neat and clean. John was outside working every day, pulling weeds, raking and sweeping. There is a really nice little bar-b-q area in the back with two charcoal grilles and some picnic tables. The pool looked nice, it's an original cement circa 1950's pool, but it is in great shape. It was empty at the time but John told us he is prepping it to open in the next couple of weeks. It was too cold to swim anyway. He did offer to pull out some chairs if we wanted to hang out by the pool.
Overall I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get a great deal on a motel that is located in a great area close to many attractions and beaches. It is centrally located with go-kart tracks, mini-golf, trampoline parks, beaches and restaurants all within a 5 minute or less drive.
We will be back!
