Stayed in a recently renovated room on the second floor. Some furniture is worn around the edges and the decor could be more inspired but the room was clean and good value. Quiet location. Be sure to call ahead if arriving late as the front desk closes at 10pm.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions as it is close to the airport in South Portland. The motel/inn has the lowest rates I was able to find and offers a reasonable rate for "park and fly" patrons. The owners of this property have done extensive renovations. I was pleased to find the room contained a small refrigerator,...

I booked a room here for one night on New Years Eve. The manager in the office was very pleasant and helpful first on the phone and then when I checked in. I got a non-smoking room with two double beds. The room was very clean and larger than I expected, as was the bathroom. During the off-season there is...

We arrived for a one night stopover on our way up north. Check in was quick and the lady who checked us in was very friendly. The hotel is on a main route, but still felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. There didn't appear to be many eateries around the motel, so eat before you arrive. The...

This Inn looks much different than the picture on the web site but it was very clean, neat and had all we needed for one night. You get what you paid for, but in a good way. Staff was very pleasant. The decor and amenities are very outdated, but I saw a stack of new toilets next to a dumpster...

I have been favorably impressed by Americas Best Value Inns now in 3 separate locations including this one. They are clean, comfortable, secure, and the staff helpful and accommodating. They are not fancy but give good value when you just need a place to sleep, get cleaned up, eat breakfast and be on your way.

Whoever said "You get what you pay for" probably stayed here. First, it's a motel, not hotel, with registration in a separate shack-like building. The motel itself is 2 stories and you use a common stairway to get to the 2nd story but both doors are always open so not a very secure feeling. Also, the location is isolated for...
