We always stay in a Best Western if we can. This time we had a very unusual experience. I called a couple weeks ago to book a kitchenette room for 2 nights. When we arrived the reservation under my name was for 1 night, no kitchenette, They weren't sure what they were going to do for us for the 2nd... More

We have been members of Best Western Rewards for years, so we tend to lean heavily on their hotels and services. This appears to be a somewhat older property, but, we found it very accommodating, clean, with a good breakfast, and with a fairly good location for what we needed. Note, we were not doing the ferry. If we ever... More

This is a no-noncense basic motel near the ferry to Portland ME. It's clean; it has a frig; breakfast is good and convenient. The wifi service is free, and the connection is easy. Importantly, the staff are very helpful.

The hotel looks recently updated in the reception/breakfast area and the rooms themselves. I especially liked the hardwood floors in the rooms. I used the guest washer and dryer during my stay and they appeared to be very clean and new as well. The woman who was working during the evening check-in last night (Aug 23rd) was very helpful and... More

The hotels in Yarmouth aren't fancy as it is a small town. Based on the limited choices, the Best Western is a great value. It is located downtown close to all the restaurants. Even though it's motel style, the room and bathroom were both clean. Bed was comfortable, Wifi worked fine, and lots of towels. Breakfast in the morning was... More

If there's somewhere worse, I can only imagine it would be shut down by now. The BEst Western Mermaid is filthy, with stained floors, an insect of unique variety in each room, dim lighting (but not romantic), a mediocre at best breakfast, and alarmingly thin walls. Don't stay here. If there are no vacancies in Yarmouth, find the next closest... More

I was not impressed by the plastic cutlery for breakfast, given the price being charged. Plastic knives don't even cut toast, and can shatter before the toast surrenders. The internet reception was very slow, and some sites simply did not respond. By and large it was acceptable as an overnight motel, and hopefully the Nova Star ferry will be around... More

Hi Dave-at-london, It is much easier and efficient for Hoteliers to use plastic cutlery as guests do not have to wait for silverware to be cleaned and replenished. Our plastic knives are very sharp, so sharp infact that we have to warn mothers of small children not to let their children play with them. We have done a lot of... More
