We have family in Scarborough, and stay there at least twice a year. Until now, we have stayed at a popular chain just down the road. The service at that chain hotel has gone from bad to horrible, and the rooms are dusty and uncared for. My husband booked at America's Best Value, which I was skeptical about, but he... More

My husband and I have stayed several times at ABVI in Scarborough and have found both the rooms and the hosts very pleasing. The rooms are clean, well cared for, and affordable. It may not be as fancy as some other big name chains, but then,all we are looking for is a good night's rest . So if you are... More

We headed up to Maine for Thanksgiving without any reservations and was lucky to find Americas Best Value Inn. What a great little place. We stayed for two nights. We were pleased with what we got for the money. Our rooms had King Bed and sitting area, huge private baths, heat and AC unit and Flat Screen TV. Only a... More

Americas Best Value Inn is a wonderful place to stay easy to access on route 1. Everything about the motel was lovely, except there was no coffee maker in our room. I guess they do not provide it in room since they have coffee in office area. I was surprised with cleaniness despite large rooms. Well kept and will return.

Got in a bind while traveling when a friend had to go to ER. All hotels were booked for marathon. Someone in ER recommended this place. Slept with my clothes on. Bed very uncomfortable, bathroom had wallpaper trying to cover up mold in shower area. Table and chairs in the room were just gross. Not enough parking spaces for the... More

The room was nice and clean..........felt we had disturbed the receptionist and don't bother with breakfast, or consider it when looking at the prices of the rooms. If we were stuck and this was the only room available, OK, but otherwise we wont go back.

Stayed one night here. Staff were welcoming and friendly, but accommodation, though adequate, was rather shabby, perhaps not unexpectedly given the low price. Breakfast was basic. Good position for exploring Cape Elizabeth and Portland.

I was here four nights two weekday and two on Labor Day (US) weekend. Nice place, even though on a moderately travelled portion of Rte 1. All rooms run through front to back, so at night you can leave bathroom window open on quiet side, and close the front up to effectively block the road noise, which is not heavy... More
