Birds nests in windows. Curtains taped with duct tape. Rooms smelled like cigarettes. Rooms dirty. Didn't take flip flops off at all. Food awful at The Maine Table Restaurant (included in price). WiFi didn't work. Front desk computers were down more than they were up.

Coming to Portland Maine for a short vacation, the Best Western at Merry Manor is a good choice. The Pool and hot tub is welcoming, the rooms themselves a bit dated but comfortable. Beds are good and AC and USB outlets are set up for the technology buff. Advise you to bring coffee from somewhere up the road, not too... More

If you are looking for a fair place with a comfy bed and a big flat screen tv and nothing more, this place is for you. Nice size rooms, tiny bathrooms and above average service all describes the hotel. You can skip the breakfast, below average food, but great staff. Also, the location is only about a 5 min drive...

Thank you Nate for your recent stay with us. I am sorry you did not get a chance to enjoy the heated outdoor pool or hot tub. It is one of the biggest reasons why our guests stay with us, as well as a place to sleep. Many guests love our centrally located hotel that is near all major highways,... More

We wanted to stay in Portland for an overnight but the hotels right in downtown Portland were booked and at least $100 more per night. This hotel was very nice, good sized room, very comfortable bed, nice amenities both in the room and on the grounds. The staff was very helpful and our room was ready when we arrived, an... More

Found this hotel as number two for south Portland here on trip advisor. It was located in a spot with great access to major roadways to get to downtown Portland. Although it was cheaper than downtown Portland I still feel this hotel was not worth the nightly rate. It had a good breakfast and everything needed, but was not to... More

Michael, we appreciate your recent stay at our hotel. I apologize that you did not feel like the hotel was worth the rate you paid. Our prices are competitive to area hotels during the summer peak season, and as you stated considerably lower than downtown hotels. We recognize that our hotel is older and we are continuously making capital improvements... More

This is a comfortable and well-maintained facility with a nice restaurant in close proximity. Cordial and helpful staff, good accommodations. It's convenient to major roads and not far from the Maine Mall. For us, it's a perfect stop on Maine's coastal Route 1.

We go to this motel in the dead of Maine winter to swim in the outdoor heated pool. Such fun in the snow! For many people the motel itself is the destination. There are often children in the pool but, as a teacher, I love kids so it is no problem for me. The rooms are really nice with microwave... More

Joe, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the massage chair in your king room! The next time you stay with us you'll have to try the Maine Table for dinner. The food is fabulous! My favorite is the Lobster Mac and Cheese! They also have "Wine Down" specials Monday through Friday from 4pm to 7pm. On Fridays,... More

This hotel now has a breakfast that is worth at least $15 per person. One of the greatest is that they retain their employees. That is a sign of a great place to work. Also, traveling with pets? Amazing green space to play with your animals. Free internet and amazing staff. Do I love staying at this hotel? YES!!!!
