My husband and I needed a weekend away. I wanted a nice room to relax in and my husband prefers the outdoors (he loves to camp!) This place was the perfect place for us. We bought wood from the front desk for $4 and it lasted us all night. We spent Saturday night sitting by the firepit which was relaxing....

We often spend the night here traveling from MA to northern Maine. The rooms are always immaculate, the people friendly, and the atmosphere inviting. Someday, we need to spend the whole week! This is a great place for just a couple, or for a whole family.

I have been going to Wells Maine for 30 years. We were lucky enough to stay in a family house on ocean ave for 24 years. After it was sold we were on our own to try new places. I feel I can give a good review because we have tried everything. My family and I decided to try the...

We stayed in a cute 2 bedroom cottage. Very comfortable accommodations and wonderful owners who were attentive to our needs! The location is perfect for visits to Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. Right off 95. Liz and Bob gave us great suggestions for walking paths, restaurants, and beaches. We also discovered the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve which has wonderful walking trails...

There are so many choices of places to stay and we couldn't have been happier with our pick to stay at the Seahorse Resort. It was our first time to the area and the Seahorse was a great find. It is close to all the attractions (Kennebunkport, Wells, beaches, etc,) but when you drive into the property you instantly feel...

The Seahorse resort has come a very long way. With it changing ownership 2+ years ago, the transformation is just unbelievable. The environment is so welcoming and cozy!

The motel rooms are really confortable and affordable, we really liked to have the option of bringing our lunch outside and eat on a picnic table by the pond, there's also a shared fireplace with wood available at the office. It kinda feel like a camping site, but with the confort of a hotel room! :) The Owner is nice...

Our family of 4 stayed in one of the cabins at the Seahorse Resort. Having the 2 bedrooms, in addition to the sitting room, kitchen and porch gave us plenty of space. Unlike being in a small hotel room, we were able to put the kids to bed in their room and then stay up without worrying about waking them...

We had a great time at the Seahorse Resort ... Rooms are clean, location is perfect and service is above and beyond.

Well my wife got to re-live a happy memory from 45+ years ago. My wife had stayed there as a child when it was called "Sleepytown" with her family several times.
