“Very clean!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My daughter and her friends had evening plans in Portland, so I needed a place that was not too far away. There were very few rooms available in Portland itself, and they were very expensive, so I broadened my search and found this motel. It was only 15 minutes away and reasonably priced.

The room was very clean, the hotel owner was pleasant, and the room was quiet. The bathroom was clean and huge. The beds were firm but comfortable. The included breakfast was cereal, coffee, and pastry.

I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel/motel was a reasonable place to spend the night. The room was clean, the reception staff were friendly. Bathroom was clean and lots of room.

Nothing special but also a decent price.

Restaurants were a drive away.

Free parking outside the rooms. Although air conditioned, you could open the windows for a bit of outside air.

We stayed one night on our trip from Boston to Bar Harbor. The hotel was very easy to find on a main road and located in a beautiful area near Cape Elzabeth and Twin Lights State Park and the Portland Head Light. While very 80's looking (think country blue, green and burgundy) - it was roomy with a king bed and sitting area complete with 2 large queen anne chairs, table and reading lamp. The bathroom was also basic but HUGE and very clean. I would not hesitate to stay here again. There is no pool...my finger slipped below and accidentally rated a pool.

I stayed in Best Value Inn in Scarbourough on my recent business Trip to Portland.When I travel I look for quiet place and Portland city limit is definately not quiet so I chose to stay at Scarbourough Best Value Inn.I was not disappointed. From checking in to my check out their service was excellent.Jay is very accomodating host.Rooms were large size and bathroom was about almost half size of the room. Wi-Fi was excellent. I have found a perfect hotel for my many future business trips to Portland.I would recommend this hotel to anyone whether business or family Trip.

Found this place online and tried it. Excellent place with lots of upgrade. Check in was easy and quick. They had beautiful flowers which was nice. It serves all our needs. We will return if in this area again.

The first time we stayed here they gave away our room. The bathrooms are very spacious I do have to say. The second time we stayed here there was dried blood on our sheets and pillow cases, and the room smelled bad.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We stayed in Scarborough for just one night to visit during our winter malaise. We opted to try this place thanks to their price and the reviews here.

It was not a five star hotel accommodation, but then, you're not paying that price! We were happy with the peace and quiet after worrying a little bit about traffic noise. No problem with that here!

We had a king size bed on the second floor, and the room was very large and comfortable. The bathroom was clean, large, and well-maintained.

There was only one negative thing about staying here: the strange odor in the room we stayed in. It wasn't entirely unpleasant, but strange and not one I would expect in a hotel room. It was not of mold or dirt, but just a strange smell. You suffer it only mildly for the first 20 minutes and then you forget about it.

Definitely worth staying if you're not looking for huge, luxurious hotels. Very down to earth and homey.

Room Tip: Second floor has all the king beds, it seems.
