I was so happy to find a room for under $150 for our 35 anniv trip to Maine. We've been going since 1980. When we got to the hotel, was told we had a queen bed and a couch. I reserved a king bed. At the bottom of the stairway leading to our room, there was leftover "do not cross"... More

This past week my wife and I spent a lovely two nights at America’s Best Value Inn in Scarborough, Maine. We enjoyed this quiet, clean motel room in the very heart of Maine’s most desirable location for everything from the sights, shopping, dining, to summer fun. We went to the Portland area partially on business, but it turned out to... More

A fantastic place to stay near Pine Point, Black Point, or Ferry beaches at a very affordable price. The rooms are larger and immaculate; the staff is very receptive to guests' needs. Very simple and straight ahead, a great alternative to the busy beach cottage areas. Lots to visit nearby, great food and more things that the locals love. You... More

What a wonderful little place this is! My room and bathroom were big, the bed was super-comfortable, and the proprietors could not have been nicer. There aren't a lot of frills here, but who cares? I stayed in Room 210, which offers a queen bed and pull-out sofa--this room is on the second floor right on the end of the... More

For the last 12 years, we've always broke up our long drive to and from our lake house by staying over at the same hotel in Scarborough, Maine. Since the hotel we frequented is now undergoing renovation, we read TripAdvisor's tested reviews to aid us in choosing an alternative venue. As a result of what we learned, America's Best Value...

Don't be put off with what appears to be an outdated old motel. The room was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable and everything worked the way it should. I've rated the motel higher than I might otherwise have because of the graciousness of the owners. We had a mix up on the dates, totally my fault, and... More

This hotel is great! The price is reasonable and the hotel rooms are large. What I love about this hotel is that I know it's clean! It looks clean!

The room is very clean, has new carpet, the air conditioning is nice and cold. It has a fridge and microwave and a big clean bathroom. It's also in a nice quiet location. Do not expect luxury, but we were very pleased for the price. For he star rating it can't be beat.

Thank you very much Christina for this 5 star review. We do have nice, clean and spacious rooms and bathrooms with all the required basic amenities. Our nice quiet location gives a homely feeling, though easily accessible from nearby attractions and market being right on U S 1. We would be very happy to help you again when you are... More
