Reviewed October 18, 2012

I've been staying at this motel for years, since before it was an America's Best. It is a great value, the rooms are very clean, the beds comfortable, and the folks who own it are extremely nice. This isn't a deluxe hotel by any means, but it is clean, affordable, safe, convenient, and friendly.

The room was clean, and it was good value for the money. Nice big room and comfortable bed. However, the chair cushions had no padding, you almost fall thru the chairs and the bathroom had an odd smell. As in unpleasant.

Room Tip: Might want to sniff it out first....

We were looking for reasonable alternative in Portland area and tried this place on friend’s recommendations and it turned out to be right. Front desk person was very accommodative and helped us to locate all what we were looking for.
Not a high-end but was clean and great looking with modern furnishings and amenities. Due to small size place was much quite and we had a good night sleep. Location is not far from Portland and easy to find on US Route 1.

I refuse to pay NYC prices to stay in Portland, Maine.. I mean, seriously? $200/night? Luckily, I found ABVI in Scarborough. The rooms were large, very clean, and the property was quiet and close to everything. The room had a very nice sized mini-fridge for food and beverage storage. Go to their website and register for their ABVI program to save 15% over Priceline and travelocity prices. The manager and staff were very nice and accomodating. Don't bother with the continental breakfast - it's very minimal (stale cinnamon rolls, a few bananas and apples) and you're better off going to the Hannaford grocery store down the road and stocking your in-room fridge with healthier/tastier options. It's not the Hilton, but odds are you aren't spending too much time in your room, so who cares?

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor unless you like lugging your suitcases up stairs.

Clean room and fairly large with two wing chairs for reading. Large bathroom. Comfortable bed. Minimal breakfast. Icemaker in office...barely kept up with demand. Location was convenient. The room decor was homey.

This place was clean, the staff very helpful. We pulled in and needed to check in fast because we were running late for a wedding. They were very accommodating. This is not luxury housing but it was clean and the bathroom had a very nice counter. We had no issues with the place, seemed a bit high but everything else in area is also high, and of the high it is the lowest. 13 minute ride to Portland waterfront so save the money over a Portland hotel.

This place was quite good. It was clean and close to shopping and restaurants. I had booked through PriceLine and thought I was requesting a non-smoking room but found that wasn't the case when I got there. The Desk clerk was very accommodating and gave me the choice of two rooms, so I could pick the room with the best air quality. I would definitely stay there again.
