The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable if slightly outdated in decor. The staff was just wonderful, helpfully explaining things like best places to park and giving maps of the hotel without needing to be asked for them. The attached restaurant is surprisingly good. They go out of their way to use local suppliers, and they have an excellent... More

Laura, we love that you appreciate all the Maine beers that we have on tap at the Maine Table Restaurant! The restaurant is definitely worth checking out. The food is delicious and on Saturday nights we have live entertainment that draw in large crowds! We hope you will visit us again soon! More

Loved this hotel. My PTSD dog travels with me when I work, the room I was given was a perfect fit for us making it very easy for his potty breaks. Our room was very nice and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever been in. Breakfast was very tasty a nice choice of items. Beautiful... More

The hotel is a great value. It's not fancy or in a great location, but the pool is amazing. It's very close to downtown Portland so it's super convenient. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included and I think was not as good as last year, but there were a lot of choices...muffins, waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, juice,... More

Let me start by saying that we booked this hotel through southwest. After reading reviews I decided on here for 3 nights in Maine. Very convenient location, not in downtown but you can be there in less than 5 minutes. I know it was off season but we didn't hear a sound the entire time we were there. Rooms were... More

First off the staff was very friendly, from reservation to check in to calling to see if we needed anything. The hotel seems to be going through a much needed and major renovation. Because of that the lobby is a bit of a mess and the pool is currently closed. We stayed in a "relaxation suite". The fireplace was awesome... More

Thank you for your recent stay with us. We are finished all the renovations in the pool and the lobby area and we are all decorated for the holiday season! We are also in the midst of deep cleaning all our rooms, hence why some of the doors may have been open for maintenance and housekeeping to get in. We... More

A waterfall in the hottub and a year round heated outdoor pool. Some rooms have fireplaces and most have tasteful Wyeth prints. The formerly sub par restaurant has been replaced with a better one. Some rooms have fireplaces, just ask. And dogs are welcome.

Terje, we are glad you had a chance to relax in the therapeutic hot tub with waterfall. Our heated pool stays open year round. Who doesn't love swimming outside in the snow? Not that we have gotten any snow yet! The weather has been unseasonable warm! We hope you will get a chance to visit us again soon! More

Best Western Merry Manor, 700 Main South Portland, Maine Helped us immensely by delivering our bags to our room once United brought them to the hotel. Nice big room with GREAT, comfy bed. Super friendly service, with the very good, requisite waffle breakfast. More than fairly pried. Close to the airport.

I was most impressed with how well thought out the rooms were. The one we stayed in (single king) had two sinks, one in the bathroom, and one in a partition that could be closed off to the rest of the room with a dual purpose closet door. Great design!

Clean, simple. Great pool and hot tub!! You get in the pool inside, but swim around outside. The temperature is very warm. The hot tub has a waterfall that can massage your back. We came to stay for one night, and we had a wonderful time. The room was nice and spacious. The kitchenette was great and useful. Nice shower.
