The hotel does not look fancy from the outside and there is no pool but it is in a great location between Portland and Old Orchard Beach with all of the amenities I needed. The room was large and clean. Bathrooms were well done. The customer service was impeccable.

We stay here every year, very clean and comfortable rooms and throughout the property. The owner/operators are very kind and accommodating, excellent customer service! Very convenient to visit Portland and the many attractions along Route 1.

Average room. Good sized bathroom. Room had a distinct smell that needed a few rounds of Fabreze to remove. No pool. Rooms with king beds are on the top floor of this 2-floor motel. Location is very convenient for Old Orchard or Portland. Window/curtains had to be kept closed 24/7 because of motel walkway. Just not worth the price on... More

Dear Damorelli, Thank you for telling us about your visit. We are very pleased to hear that you had such a great stay with us, and we are especially glad to hear that you like our location. Since we are close all beautiful beaches like OOB, Pine Point, Higgins etc. we do not have pool on site. More

We usually can trust the reviews published on TripAdvisor, but in this case our experience was one big letdown. Please, read carefully the negative reviews which were given to this motel so then you won't be disappointed as we were. Breakfast is very, very, very miserable, you will need to go eat somewhere else. The staff is not professional, the... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for contacting tripadvisor and providing us your opinion on recent stay at Americas Best Value Inn and not at Sun Set Resort. I do apologize that I was not able to satisfy your expectation on breakfast as we provide it complementary to our guest. We provide assorted pastries, boxed cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, juice, milk,... More

We were driving through from North Carolina and needed a place to stop. This modest looking inn was clean and safe. No frills, but for someone looking for a decent place to stay in which you don't have to worry about anything, this is a great place. The owner lives in the house in front of the place, Worth driving... More

This was only our second stay at an America's Best Value Inn, and it was consistent with the first one in Portsmouth, Maine. The room was clean, quiet, large, nicely appointed. I'm not crazy about carpeted motel room floors, but this one was clean and obviously been vacuumed. Just a nice budget hotel. Had a nice chat with the owner,... More

We have stayed at this property before and did not hesitate to book again. My surprise was that the property is even nicer than last time - and we were pleased then! The rooms are large - ours had 2 beds with a nightstand in between them, a desk with lamp and chair, a table and two comfortable chairs, a... More

Was visiting family in Portland and did not want to spend a fortune on a hotel. After reading a lot of the reviews, I chose this hotel. When I got there the office was closed, but I called the number on the door, and the gentleman told me to go to my room, and there was the key on the... More
