My husband and I recently stayed at the Merry Manor Inn for our 10 year anniversary. The cookies in the lobby upon arrival were enticing enough, but the front desk staff was so welcoming and friendly......We had thought we were getting the honeymoon suite and were pleasantly surprised that we had been upgraded to the Captain's suite on the 4th floor. The room was exquisite. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the privacy was unmatched compared to anything we had ever have. This experience was WAY better than our original honeymoon 10 years ago! We were able to have the buffet breakfast the next day, which offered a large variety of cereals, fruits, meats, and other breakfast delights. The only complaint I can offer is that the drinks with the buffet were not free. They came with a price. Overall, this was a romantic getaway for my husband and I. I cannot wait to go back to the Merry Manor Inn and would highly recommend it for both couples and families traveling through the area.

We are so happy that you chose us to celebrate your 10th year anniversary. Thank you very much. I agree that the Captain's Suite with its extra special touches is a beautiful room. It is decorated to bring back memories of long ago sea captains and treasures from far away lands. I bet no sea captain got to relax in a private two person hot tub on his first night back on land. I hope you come back and try our other fantasy suite, the Maine Lake Lodge. It also has a hot tub, and its furnishings and décor resemble a Maine camp (but with all the modern conveniences). It even has an antler chandelier. Both of our fantasy suites have the promise of a memorable time.
As you mentioned, we do offer freshly baked cookies in the late afternoon for our guests to enjoy. Our newly renovated and renamed restaurant, The Maine Table, is open for breakfast and dinner. A complimentary breakfast for two is offered with qualifying rates, but unfortunately, yours was not a qualifying rate. When you make your next reservation, please be sure to ask the front desk associate for more information. We do not want you disappointed.
Thanks again for staying with us. We hope to see you soon.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your recent trip to the USA. We appreciate your patronage. The New England area certainly is great for sight seeing - and for living. We have everything from our beautiful coastline, amazing mountains, lakes and rivers. We are home to many fine state parks and the Bar Harbor region boasts Acadia National Park as its gem. As you mentioned, we are conveniently located. We are directly off Exit 45 of Interstate 95 and off of Exit 2 of 295. We are only 10 minutes away from the historic Old Port with its many day cruises, trolley tours, and walking tours. The Foodie Tour is especially popular. Around Halloween time, there is a "spirit tour" for the brave of heart. The Portland Museum of Art, also located in the Old Port, has hosted the works of many well known artists. The Old Port is also home of many one of a kind boutiques and restaurants. We are just a few minutes away for the Maine Mall and the Portland Jetport.
Thank you again for staying with us.

Thank you for staying with us recently at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn. We truly appreciate your patronage. As you mentioned, we are conveniently located directly off Exit 45 of 95 or Exit 2 of 295. The Old Port, with its many boutique shops, fine restaurants and historic sites, is an easy 10 minute drive from our front door. The Old Port also offers informative and fun trolley rides, whale watching cruises and the unique Duck Tours. The Duck Tours will take you on a land tour of the area and them splash into the Casco Bay. We are just 20 minutes away from miles of sandy beaches in Old Orchard Beach. The area also offers fun and exciting activities such as Palace Playland, Aquaboggan & Funtown Splashtown USA.
As you mentioned, we do have a hot tub, fitness center and year round outdoor heated pool. Our restaurant, now aptly named The Maine Table, has an amazing dinner menu and an amazing new chef. It is highlighting locally grown food products. Thanks again for staying with us.

We spent one night here, early May with 2 adults, 2 children. Room was very clean, a little dated but great for the price. Pool was a lot of fun for the kids, they especially liked that it is an outdoor/indoor pool. And even in May was comfortable outside since it was heated. We ate dinner at the restaurant and the waitress was very pleasant, food was good as well. Would definitely stay here again, and would take advantage of the park and stay promotion for the airport. A great value.

Thank you for staying with us at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn and for taking a few minutes of your time to let others know how much you enjoyed our hotel. Besides our unique year round outdoor heated pool, we also have an inside kiddie pool for the little ones and a hot tub. We also have a fitness center on site. We are just beginning renovations of our rooms and we are all very excited. The Maine Table, our newly renovated restaurant, now has a modern and inviting feel. Fresh Maine food will be highlighted on its menu. We even have plans to grow some vegetable hydroponically on site. Our Park & Fly packages are a great value for those planning on catching a flight at the Portland airport, but may I suggest spending a few days in the Portland area to see all the best the southern Maine area has to offer in the warmer months. We are a few minutes away from the Old Port. The Old Port has a variety of hourly cruises and land tours that I am sure you will enjoy. The Duck Tours run out of Portland and will give you the best of both worlds. The vehicle explores the Portland streets and then splashes into Casco Bay for cruise around our local islands. We are just minutes away from Freeport - home of LL Bean. A short drive will take you to miles of sandy beaches. Old Orchard Beach is a great place to explore. The town has fireworks every Thursday night during the summer months. We have nearby amusement parks, such as Palace Playland, Funtown Splashtown, and Aquaboggan.
Don't forget the great shopping this area has to offer. Thanks for staying with us and I hope you will think of taking a few days to explore the Portland area.
