If you need to a nice, quiet, gorgeous place to stay The Garrison is great. We had never been to Maine and booked a room "sight unseen". We held our breath as we drove in and we all were just blown away by the beautiful view. If you check out their website, the view of the ocean really does look...

We have stayed here for two weeks in May for years. It's quiet, the location is good, the rooms are clean, the owners friendly, and the maids efficient and so nice. Two restaurants are within easy walking distance. We enjoy sitting on the little porch with a glass of wine enjoying the view.

I stayed at the Garrison while in Maine for a wedding celebration. An unauthorized charge of $50 for burnt bedding was put on our credit card upon leaving. There was no one to greet us upon check in (a key was left in our open room) and no one made an effort to meet us during our stay. In an...

The weekend of June 4th and June 5th 2016 my husband and I went on a trip to Maine. It was a high school graduation for our niece my husband's side of the family. We stayed overnight at the Garrison Motel because we didn't want to drive home so tired and exhausted from attending the graduation. We had a wonderful...

Stayed in the 2 story part of the hotel. It had a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom. Located on the main road, which was very busy, but no traffic noise in unit. This was a week before Memorial day and it was really crowded. Can't imagine what it must be like in season. Everything worked properly in our unit...

Just returned from a Memorial Day Weekend stay at "The Garrison" in Wells, Maine. This is not our first stay here and it certainly will not be our last. The proprietors of The Garrison are always friendly and helpful in any and every way. The rooms are always immaculate and well maintained. The staff of capable maids are extremely friendly...

After a long flight across the country I arrived late at night to find my suite ready for me with the light on. The pool was still open this trip. It was very inviting, clean and attractive with the deep blue chairs. It was a lovely stay and as always everyone was so helpful and friendly.

Well another wonderful 2 weeks staying at The Garrison in 2015. Angela and Justine were as always very accommodating, and went out of their way to make our stay there a special one. We always feel like we have come back home when we go to stay on vacation. Its always sad and hard when its time to go.
