Atlantic has been here forever. We stayed here in the 70's! Since than they've updated the rooms, but there are still things that need improvement. Very little space for parking. Don't bring an extra car!! There isn't an elevator, so be prepared to lug your suitcase up stairs which need to be revamped. The rooms are fine with nice toiletries....

My daughter and I spent a weekend here in August 2014. Our room was on the second floor with a balcony and an ocean view. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located a short walk from shops and a carry-out and eat-in restaurant which served the most delicious...

My husband and I have stayed here twice before. The location is great-right on the beach! It is also very close to everything in Wells-restaurants, mini golf, etc. the rooms are nice and basic-everything you need. There is an outdoor pool which is advertised as heated but I think that may be a relative term as it only seemed warm...

Right on the beach, you couldn't ask for a better location. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to restaurants and plenty of activities.Do yourself a favor and try a stay here. If I had to complain about something, it would be the shower head which is typical of most motels. The water just don't come out strong...

We had rented a cottage in Wells and after arriving we found it not to be suitable. We had to find a place to stay. We found the Atlantic Oceanfront Motel close by. The co-owner was very hospitable and gave us a very reasonable rate for a clean spacious room. She let us borrow two beach chairs and we were...

When booking this room I was told the room would be ocean front and ocean view...well it was technically ocean front but their was no view. The room had a balcony that overlooked sand and the people walking by (they literally could have just jumped on my balcony). Also, even though you have a balcony you cannot smoke on it....strange...

Booked a weekend getaway at the Atlantic Oceanfront Motel in Wells, ME based on reviews, availability and price. The rooms are updated, clean and comfortable. Prices are reduced now that summer season is over. The weather was not perfect, but we made the best of it. We will definitely stay here again.

Just returned from 5 nights and 6 days in Maine; stayed at this motel and have no complaints. The room was a little small, but the view more than made up for it. This place is literally right on the beach and our room had balcony that faced the water. Woke up the the sounds of the surf. We had...

Just returned from a long weekend at the Atlantic Motel right on the beach. We had never stayed there before and have already made reservations for next year's stay! The king suite was up to date, clean and comfortable. The heated pool was a nice bonus after a long day in the salt water. Location is quiet and centrally located...
