“The Best!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

I am a seasoned traveller and have been visiting Portland regularly for the last couple of years. I ventured to Scarborough originally to save money. I happened on this gem and won't stay anywhere else when visiting this area. It is a family operated motel and they put their heart and money into this business. The rooms are always clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff are courteous and the rates offer excellent value. I constantly find new upgrades in the rooms. It is well worth driving a few extra miles to stay here; I do.

Ultra clean. Huge comfortable bed. Modern decor. Spotless bathroom. Free Wifi that's easy to log on and stay on. Free continental breakfast. Easy highway access. Low price. Is there anything wrong with this motel?

If you need a swimming pool, fitness center, or a flat-screen TV, you might think so. But that's not what I'm looking for in a "Best Value" brand. I searched on Priceline and didn't find anything in the area for a price similar to this motel, so I made the reservation at their website and I will be happy to do that again. I've stayed in ABVI hotels before and it is not a "chain" that enforces strict standards on their members, so I am wary of the brand name. But in this case, it's truly a good value and a very nice place to spend a night.

basic room at a value price, roomy and clean except the carpet could have used spot cleaning. They had a basic continental breakfast available but the office smelled so weird and musty, my husband wouldn't eat there. OK for what we paid.

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.
