I stayed there for 2 nights. The woman that checked me in was very nice. I found the room to be very clean. The bed was comfortable. It was a good size room with a small refrigerator. In the morning, at the Office building there is a room to enjoy a Continental Breakfast. I would stay there again.

We stayed there for a week in early September while waiting to check in to our vacation rental in Wells. This hotel was very clean with very spacious rooms. We stayed in the back section in a king room and were very pleased with the peace and quiet. This hotel was convenient to Walmart and Dunkin Donuts, among other places....

Not much to look at from the street, but is one of the cleanest well-kept motels I've stayed in. Other buildings in the back keep you away from street noise. Room had fridge, microwave, big screen tv. Lots of hot water. Comfortable bed. I would stay here again. Not really near any attractions that I know of; we were visiting...

For a last minute place to sleep it was fine. I am not one to be all concerned about modern decor. The room was clean however I found the beds too soft for my personal taste. However the manager, who I never met in person, left me a nasty voice mail saying I had snuck a dog into my room...

nothing special at all. but the room was clean with a refrigerator, microwave, sufficient hot water, and a quiet environment. if you need to stay in Sanford, this works fine. otherwise, spend a few dollars more and stay on the coast for a more pleasant environment

My family booked this hotel with three adults and two kids. The hotel room is spacious, with enough room for the extra cot that we had needed. The room itself was very clean, but the decor itself was very outdated. The staff was friendly enough but the continental breakfast was not impressive. Will most likely try to book elsewhere first,...

Location is close to Wells.Motel is very clean and the size of our corner room was very unexpected. The owners are very friendly and accommodating . We were a family of four spending a weekend at the ocean and the Sanford Inn met our needs very well. We will return next year.

We booked a room at this motel because the town has limited dhoices for hotels. This is not a hotel that we care to use again. It is an old motel, worn, and tired. The decor has not been changes since it was built in the '50s. The room was marginally clean with the entry located near the parking space....

We needed a place to stay while visiting for my nephews graduation. We stayed a couple of nights. The staff was so kind & friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. The Sanford Inn was perfect for what we needed. :)
