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... More

This hotel, situated approximately 8 miles south of Portland, ME on Route 1, is managed by excellent owner-operators, Nikki and Gary, and offers clean, quiet, up to date rooms (sleeping and bath) and a location that's convenient for travel to Portland, Old Orchard, Ogunquit and local beaches. The owner managers are pleasant, efficient and accommodating, and and take obvious pride... More

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
