“Wonderful Place To Stay!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Last week, my wife and I decided to spend a couple days in Maine - Nothing special, just some time away in a place we love! For many years, we have travelled past the MIllbrook on our way north and south along Rte. 1, and we had often said we would stay there one day!

Our recent experience was wonderful!!! The king room was large and comfy, the large bathroom was a pleasant surprise (been in some places, I couldn't turn around without banging against a wall!), and the bed was clean and very comfortable! The sitting area had two nice chairs, a footstool, and table w/lamp! There were plenty of convenient (didn't have to crawl behind a bed or under a desk) wall outlets for the chargers, etc.. The flat screen TV and refrigerator made the stay very nice!

The motel is convenient to our favorite breakfast place (Egg & I), as well as a favorite seafood restaurant (The Clambake)! In addition to loving and appreciating Maine, we are birders - The motel is just up the road from Scarborough Marsh, and it's not to far to travel to Two Lights, Portland Head, Cape Elizabeth, and other southern Maine coastal areas!

I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with the location, cleanliness, amenities, and staff! Jay was very helpful with confirming our reservation before we left home! We have already decided to plan another getaway, and we look forward to staying at the Millbrook (ABVI). Thank You Jay and Staff!

We stay at this hotel every time (if possible) when we are in Scarborough. I have family in the area and we visit at least a couple of times each year.

The hotel is clean and the rooms are huge. The bathrooms are very big too. The manager and the staff are all very accommodating and remember us when we walk in (sure, he probably looked at the reservation book and guessed but it still feels nice to be greeted by name!) Any time we have a request (extra towels, ice, whatever), they are happy to help and do so quickly.

I can’t say enough good about this hotel. It’s in a great location too.

If possible, we stay here every time we are in the Scarborough/Portland area. The rooms are a good size and clean. The manager and staff have always been very accommodating of our requests. The Inn is convenient to shopping and restaurants and makes for easy day-tripping. This is great value for your money and I always recommend it to friends who are travelling to the area.

The hotel and employees are wonderful. Very accommodating. The stay was very pleasant and relaxing. The rooms are wonderful, makes you feel like your at home. Not to far from things to do, and if you want to stay in they have a few restaurants that deliver, for that nite in. Have a continental breakfast for those early morning starts. I would recommend this warm and inviting hotels to anyone on the go.

Room Tip: They all seam great.

It was important that I had internet service. It was very spotty, until the manager brought the wifi extender to my room, at the end of the hotel. He made sure it worked. It took only one mention of the problem for it to be resolved.

We recently stayed for four nights at this motel. First, let me say that the previous month we stayed at a nearby "higher end" motel which cost twice as much and offered less as far as cleanliness and other comforts (TV had technical difficulties, phone jack kept falling out of outlet and the office people did not repair it, sheets were missing on the sofa bed, could not adjust temperature in the room, etc.)
Our room at Americas Best Value was extremely clean, everything worked, the bathroom was the largest we have ever had and the heat could be adjusted easily (it was a very cold week). We read the reviews before arriving at the motel, so we knew to bring our own coffee maker and breakfast foods. A light fare was provided at the motel, but what do you want for such reasonable prices!! We will go back the next time we are in Scarborough.
