“Nice place for families.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We had things to do a few things in Portland & just went for a quick overnight. The room was very clean, a good size with 2 queen beds. The outdoor pool would be a great winter get away for families with children. Breakfast was good, not outstanding, but they had a nice variety.

Room Tip: probably away from the stairwells & doors.

I've been commuting for work for several weeks and just happened to find this place on line. In an effort to keep my costs down I chose this hotel blind because of the price. It's about 15 minutes from the downtown port area, right off the highway, it has a heated outdoor pool, hot tub, restaurant on site with a pub, microwave and mini fridge in the room.
When I arrived I found that it's a hidden gem. The staff is attentive and polite. The area is safe. The free parking is close to the entry doors for the rooms. The rooms are very neat and clean and everything is in working order. Big new TV, free internet, well working heating/cooling units. New beds. The cleaning staff is great!
Check in was a breeze with a special note to Laura who was extremely helpful both with my very first check in and my subsequent check ins.
This hotel is half the price of the ones downtown and frankly much nicer. The free breakfast is a fully cooked have it your way breakfast. Not the rubber eggs breakfast. Way more bang for your buck.
And as an added bonus....a massage chair in the rooms. Way to nail it Best Western.
I'll be back next week.

We had a wonderful experience here. Everyone was friendly, rooms were clean and the food was great but, I would have to say that the hit of our stay was the outdoors heated pool! What an experience to swim outside in the middle of winter. Our 9 year old had a blast!!! Thank you Best Western Inn for giving us a nice and relaxing weekend. Just what we needed. :)

Charles, we are overjoyed that you and your family had a great stay! We are just one of three hotels in Maine that features a heated outdoor pool. It is an experience that is unlike any other. Your daughter can tell all her friends that she swam outside during the winter in Maine! Not many kids can say that! Thank you for your kind review. We hope to see you back again soon!

We came in to the motel with aching backs and worried about getting any sleep that night. We saw the massage chair sitting next to our bed and immediately took turns using it. What a difference it made in our stay. The breakfast the next morning was a wonderful surprise too.

Barbara, thank you for your recent stay with us. We are so delighted that you enjoyed the massage chair in your room. They are only available in our King suites, so if you stay with us again be sure to mention you would like a room with a massage chair! They are a big hit among many of our weary travelers after a long journey. Of course, we also have the hot tub and heated outdoor pool to help our guests relax and unwind! We look forward to your return visits!

A perfect location for our recent get-a-way weekend. We arrived Saturday and went into Portland for dinner and walked around this quaint, seaport town with wonderful local shops. Returned to take a swim in the outdoor heated swimming pool. Finished off the night with a cocktail in the newly renovated lounge which was beautiful. Enjoyed an amazing full breakfast buffet the next morning with waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, etc.... anything you wanted was there. The staff was friendly, caring and efficient.

We are more than delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us! We really are perfectly located if you don't mind a few minute drive into Portland. We are conveniently located near both I-95 and I-295. We are also just a few miles from the Maine Mall and Portland area with all the attractions they have to offer. Many guests enjoy taking day trips to Freeport for a day of shopping, just 20 minutes away, or Kittery which is 40 minutes away. There is also the convenience of being just 10 minutes from Old Orchard Beach and Funtown/Splashtown in the summer! We appreciate your stay with us and hope to see you back again soon!

After a busy day of work we were pleasantly surprised with this Best Western. To have the experience of swimming in a heated outdoor swimming pool was awesome, Then on to relax in the hot tub. A great value! Highly recommend.

Not the most fancy or up-to-date hotel I've stayed in, but it does the job. The pool was great, especially because it was snowing out. Tough to get in a real swim with the air being as cold as it's been lately. Thought the hot tub looked a little dirty, but that may have been just me. The rooms themselves are a little warn down, but I found the bed very comfortable. Love that there is a gas station directly next door. Made running out for a snack easy! Really nice staff.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. I am delighted that you found the beds to be comfortable. We are constantly replacing mattresses so that our guests have a comfortable night sleeping. I apologize if the hot tub appeared dirty. It is cleaned daily as well as the kiddie pool and heated outdoor pool. We are an older hotel and are constantly making changes and improvements to the hotel. We are currently in the process of changing all the bathroom counter tops to granite and recently completed renovations on 10 rooms. We work tirelessly to ensure that our facility is clean and that customer service is above standards. We appreciate your business and hope you will stay with us again in the future.
