I think this place is a gem. Our second floor suite was perfect for our leisurely getaway. Usually we are on-the-go, so a room is all we need (and we did stay in one of their motel rooms on a previous trip), but this visit we were more about taking our time and appreciated having the extra room to relax...

We love to stay at The Garrison. The suites are clean, comfortable and well equipped. They're close to attractions, beaches, shops, and lots of wonderful restaurants. The kitchen enables us to eat in if we choose. The hospitality of those at the front desk as well as other staff members has always been friendly and helpful. We highly recommend it.

After driving up from Massachusetts and a day of shopping, we came across The Garrison on Route 1. It is close to several restaurants, a supermarket, CVS, McDonald's and shopping. It is a short drive to Ogunquit or the ocean. We were surprised when entering the unit that it was large, we did not expect the separate bedroom but I... More

Stayed in Sept. off season---lovely owner greeted us----had a room on the second floor. It was lovely cause you could sit out and see all the way to the ocean, but dragging stuff upstairs wasn't easy. It was a super clean room----didn't have flat screen tvs, but that was okay. I can see where the bedroom would be hot in... More

Fantastic place to stay. Clean and quiet with a great kitchen area if you want to make any meals. We enjoyed coffee on our little deck overlooking the marsh every morning. We will definitely stay there again!

I stayed with a girl friend for 3 nights at the Garrison. The owners are so accommodating and friendly to all who stay with them. The room was very clean.

Beautiful setting, very clean. Excellent staff, really friendly. This is not your average motel. The grounds are lovely, the pool is spacious. The rooms are clean and set up for maximum space. This is a great place for a family vacation.
