I usually don't leave bad reviews but this place was terrible with terrible customer service. I felt like i was "bothering" them.The bed was extremely uncomfortable and the place was dirty. I won't return.

Never again! When we checked in, the first room he gave us the a/c never got cold. His response when told this was "What do you want? Its almost 100 degrees!" I wanted an a/c that worked. When we were going to check into another motel down the road, we were told there would be a $129 cancellation fee if...

This motel is nicely located but we will not be back. The bed was terribly uncomfortable and the pillows were the worst! The towels were barely big enough to be called bath towels. Bad TV too. The pool is nice and enjoyable.

Two nights at Tallwood on a 14 day bike trip. Room was small, no breakfast, far from the beach but then every motel in Wells is far form the beach. Pool is ok and there a a few good restaurants around (Maine Dinner is worth it). When we arrived the toilet was not working and the faucet was clogged. We...

The room was old and nothing worked. No light on the wall, no outlet in the bathroom. AC made a terrible noise. 4 stations on the outdated TV. I had to ask for towels. My ice bucket was full of dirt. And no coffee, even though they advertise there is. I was in tears. It was very depressing. And they...

Spider webs, dirty linen and bedspread. Paid for 3 nights, left after one. NO REFUND! Probably the only way they make money. Certainly couldn't be by repeat business. One night there...and NO WAY a smart person would ever go back.

I spent two nights at this motel, two weeks apart. The first stay was very unplanned. I rang the bell after 11:00 PM. Sure enough, the clerk came through the door and didn't leave me waiting more than a minute, maybe two. I got room #20. It was a tiny bit chilly in the room, and I didn't have any...

Have stayed at Tallwoods with my family several times. But have not been here in many years. Checked in on Sept. 24. After checking in, the owner told me that they had a leak and the water would be off for 20 min. We went to the room and found it to be filthy.The shower was black and the room...
