We rented one of the oen bedroom cottages. Small, but more than enough for two plus one kid. Nice heated indoor pool, and a lot of place for our toddler to run around. With all the restaurants around, you don't really need the kitchenette, so you could settle for a motel room. Wifi did not always work.

Wells Beach was to be our anchor point to tour the coastline and towns of Southern Maine with an RCI week at the Sea Mist "Resort" Motel in a studio unit. We exchanged a 2 bedroom unit at Myrtle Beach, SC for this unit. Do not bother visiting here if you have any expectations for a comfortable, relaxing, accomdating room. It is by far the worst unit we have ever had. We stayed one night and left to head south to Philadelphia. If you plan to visit this area, do a longer search and find a better place. No matter what you think you save here, it is a waste of your money.

Room Tip: Read reviews of previous visitors.

DerryD, Manager at Sea Mist Resort Motel, responded to this reviewResponded August 1, 2011

The Sea Mist sincerely regrets the disappointment you felt upon arriving at our humble facility. You being an RCI exchange guests, we fully understand why you might have elevated expectations; some of the properties available through RCI are gorgeous, expansive and have many amenities! RCI also has several properties like ours, where the vacation is more about the destination rather than the motel room or lodging facility.
We work hard to ensure our guests have a comfortable stay; those efforts include trying to make sure our guests are informed of what they can expect from our facility. We offer a well maintained website full of pictures and information about our motel. Have an expanded description detailed under “Additional Information” on our RCI listing and for all our RCI guests we go a step further and mail/ or e-mail a confirmation with a detailed description of the facility.
It is true, our studio rooms are a bit small and our facility offers only a few Bells & Whistles (indoor pool, hot tub & free Wi-Fi). But to those that have explored the Southern Maine Coastal area we believe Sea Mist still offers great value as a clean and wholesome home base with enough facilities to save you from having to eat every meal out.
Thank you for sharing your opinion.
Sea Mist Management

Had a great stay at this hotel in Maine for Columbus Day weekend. Simple clean hotel in a good location. Nice indoor pool during the cool weather.

Stayed over the Fourth of July weekend with my sister. Room was very small, beds hard and pillows flat! Everthing looked as if corners were cut drastically to save a buck. Bathroom very small and the tub so narrow ,it's fine for a baby. The $25.00 charge for not washing your dishes beats all. Do you really expect guests to eat from dishes washed by other guests> REALLY. SOme system could be worked out to have dirty dishes run through a dishwasher and returned to rooms.
The entrance into the area is a DANGER - absolutely no illumination to show the driveway to parking area. There is a tiny sign with perhalps a 60 watt for lighting, hidden by bushes , no street lights, nothing to assist in making the turn off busy Route 1. One evening, Neither my sister or I could find the motel driveway and I ended up on the front lawn. Definitely a precarious situation. Police take notice.
I found more negative than positives, so would never recommend this place.

My husband and I just returned from our week (6 nights) stay at the Sea Mist Motel Resort in Wells Beach, Maine. We made the arrangements for the rental through RCI.

The pros of the motel are that it is a great location- right in the middle between Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. It's a 5 minute drive to the beautiful beach (would be probably a 15 minute bike ride). There are a ton of restaurants and shops a short drive away. There is a CVS and large grocery store with a wine shop less than 5 minutes drive away, which was very convenient. The room was clean and the housekeeping staff was very friendly and thorough. The air conditioner worked great - it was nice and cool. We also could open the windows for fresh air. The internet WiFi service was super convenient and a huge plus. Cable TV was good and they have upgraded to have a VCR/DVD player in the rooms. The cost of the room was a good price for a week's stay. The grounds are well taken care of and the staff was helpful.

The cons of the motel are that it is small. For my husband and I, who are average sized individuals, it was fine. I would caution anyone who is larger or a family, because it may be a bit cramped. The other issue is the bed. It is hard. After the first night on it, I had that stiff neck thing where you can't turn your head and that didn't go away until the 2nd to last day. My husband felt fine though. (I would also suggest bringing your own blanket, the motel blankets were a little worn). The last con is that there is no emergency number to call if there is an issue in the middle of the night (that we were aware of).

It is not a hotel, but a basic motel with some added amenities. We would most likely go back to stay again. All in all- we had a great, relaxing vacation at the beach with lots of fun and delicious dinners!

Restaurant/Food recommendations:

Mike's Clam Shack Restaurant (less than 5 minutes down the road)- AWESOME lobster stew...seriously good- almost a whole lobster in my cup of stew! Also, yummy lobster roll. I also recommend the Seafood Platter - hand battered and fried clams, scallops, haddock, shrimp and onion rings - huge portion and delicious! http://www.mikesclamshack.com

The Lobster Shack (Perkins Cove in Ogunquit)- Great FRESH lobster- no frills, but very quaint and friendly. Good price, great atmosphere and delicious lobster! You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Skip the steamers- go for the steamed whole lobster & corn on the cob! http://www.lobster-shack.com/

Scoop Deck (less than 5 minutes in the other direction down the road)- HUGE portions of icecream with a ton of different flavors. Get the Peanut Butter Ididerod- so good. Also, the strawberry shortcake was delicious. We went there 3 times for dessert, it was really good! (I'm in need of a big time diet this week!) http://www.scoopdeck.com/

Maine Diner (down the road a bit- about 10 minutes drive)- Great for breakfast. Super friendly waitress and prompt seating (no wait for us even at 10am). Blueberry pancakes were delicious and the service was excellent! http://www.mainediner.com/
