No place is perfect, however this place is like an extension of my home or my home away from home. I have not had the privilege of staying any of the other Best Western Hotels, but here you get great service from friendly people. They recognize you and chat like you're old friends. The price for this place varies depending on when and for how long you're staying. With that price comes fresh real food breakfast, an out door heated pool all year and a large hot tube with a waterfall. Anytime I'm in the area this is where I stay.

Hotel's Favorite
We have stayed at this property several times and had family and guests stay here as well. Most recently, my family and I were staying at this hotel as our house was preparing to be sold As always, the rooms were clean and very affordable. Hotel rooms in the Portland area can be ungodly expensive. So it is nice to have an affordable option. The pack and go breakfast had a great many of choices. They have a lovely outdoor heated pool that we enjoyed. The staff was excellent. They were very helpful and accommodating. Despite the COVID signage, I witnessed several people enter the building with out masks and the staff quickly approached them and offered them masks. While we were there at the we witnessed a guest verbally assault another goup of guests. These guests were enjoying takeout food in the pool area, all the while being responsible and socially distancing. Yet while unmasked she took it upon herself to approach them to confront them about nor wearing masks while they ate. She was completely in the wrong. These people wore masks before and after eating and at no time were near anyone outside of their immediate group. I feel sorry for this woman. I can't going through life that angry.I hate the terminology, but it seems that she was just another "Karen", or is it Erin? I don't know wither way I feel sorry for her. As a business traveler I have spent more than 3,000 nights in hotels. Is this hotel the Ritz Carlton? No it is not, but it doesn't pretend to be. Its just a clean, welcoming, no frills hotel with a good location, a terrific staff, and strong management. We will certainly stay there again when we return to the area.

We had a wonderful room with a massage chair that I fully enjoyed! I love that the room had a separate outside sink which is so helpful to not be in each other’s way when getting ready for the day! The breakfast was awesome and we had turkey breakfast sandwiches on Thanksgiving morning which were so delicious! Glen made breakfast a wonderful experience by going above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed! Overall I would recommend this hotel as the room was comfortable and quiet and perfect for a long weekend stay!

Everything was great, completely amazed how friendly the staff was and how clean this place was kept. Used pool and hot tub daily. Staff working daily to assure everything was tidy. Well done! Convenient access to I295 to travel into Portland. Continuous improvement at this hotel was quite evident.

Fabulous staff, comfy room. Nice place for our conference, with a meal following our event, as well as a hospitality room for our casual evening gathering. Great location close to local shopping and the scenic Maine coast.
