|We made our own balcony|
|Paved sports, directly in front of door|
Off we went. Property is very easy to find. Right off exit 19 from the Maine Turnpike (95).
We spent the day touring the area and arrived at the property around 5:00pm. Check-in was quick and simple, and owner was as friendly as he was on the phone. Even asked if he could get a ride on the bike. Room was very clean inside, has AC/heat, flatscreen TV, fridge, and microwave. Definitely suited our needs for one night and the best part...no smoking smell. There was an open window and we left door open for some time so we never had an issue. Very pleased with our choice.
|Not the Ritz, but clean and convenient|
The property has a seasonal outdoor pool, which was quite cold but refreshing. The standard continental breakfast is offered from about 7:30am-10:00am, I think...coffee, juice, and muffins and there is computer/printer for guests use in the main office area.
There is a seafood restaurant nextdoor, Weathervane. We saw many guests heading over there for dinner and some bringing takeout back to room. Other than that, have to hop back on bike for other choices. There is a Walmart a couple of miles away and a pizza place, liquor just nearby. Restaurants and shops in Wells are about a 15 minute ride on Route 109. Easy to find and lots to do.
Overall, we were very pleased with our choice of the Sanford Inn, Wells, Maine. Perhaps the best part of the stay though was meeting a couple riders, who were also staying at the motel. They were two men from the mid-west, semi-retired, who chose to hop on their bikes (from Nebraska or something, I forget) and drive to Maine for a lobster roll. Now, that's an adventure and they both agreed that Maine lobster is worth the trip. I would agree. We spent a couple of hours, late at night, sharing our riding stories and then wished them well on the rest of their journey. The people you meet and the stories you hear....it's what riding is all about.
