Spacious & comfortable rooms & the newly refurbished 'Maine Table' on site restaurant was really lovely for both ambience & food. We had a coupon towards a breakfast of our choice & it was great to eat from china plates - unlike most motels.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on Trip Advisor. We appreciate your kind words and are very happy that you loved the on-site restaurant, The Maine Table. The restaurant features fresh Maine dishes such as Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. Our head chef, Kimmo Meronen, was just featured in the Portland Press Herald highlighting some of the dishes our guests have come to love!

Enjoyable stay with our traveling dog. Nice area, just off the xway, close, 20 min. to Portland Lighthouse. Staff very helpful, even supplied a supercute dog bowl and treats compliments of the motel! Breakfast was full course in the adjacent restaurant,with bacon, eggs, sausage, muffins, fruit, bagels, fried potatoes, etc. Clean, restful place to stay. Would stay here again!!!

Comfortable room -- nicely appointed. Scenic area? Not so much! But well located for access to highways and riverfront. Note: "property view" = the parking lot! Breakfast buffet was ample -- also an option of ordering from the menu.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. We are so glad you found the room to be "comfy." We try to offer all the comforts of home while staying with us. We have refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers in each room. As the weather starts turning cool, we have the cozy fireplace in the lobby for you to sit in front of to warm up, while enjoying fresh baked cookies at check-in. We also offer rooms with Temper-pedic mattress and massage chairs! Ask for details when making your next reservation!

We just had a family get-together and chose this hotel as it was centrally located for the families traveling from out of state. The heated pool was a real hit with the grandkids (6 to 12 years old). The adults liked that it was centrally located. The front desk was friendly and helpful also.

Room Tip: There are a couple of suites with extra room for kids.

Needed a place to stay overnight as part of a journey and had a Best Western gift coupon so we stayed at this motel. It was a good experience with staff and particularly with the breakfast that came with the stay, but I did not enjoy the room. The bed was fine but for the price paid, the room certainly lacked freshness and had an odor of an old low end motel. Have had much better room experiences for less money.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent stay. We are pleased that you enjoyed the complimentary All- American breakfast buffet and that our staff was helpful. We have been making changes to the hotel, such as our remodeled restaurant, The Maine Table. We are also adding granite countertops to all rooms and have recently completed renovations on 10 of our rooms. We are always making improvements to the hotel and making things better.

Can't say enough about our great time at the Merry Manor. Front desk friendly and went beyond in greeting and letting us see the room beforehand. The room, furnishings and bed were topnotch ! We loved the newly decorated Maine Table restaurant in the same complex. The food, service and decor were superb. Our overnight stay also came with breakfast. We LOVED the jacuzzi and attached heated pool. Everything was super clean and we enjoyed the swim at 40 degrees on a moonlit September night. Would highly recommend. Don't let the "exterior" mentioned in another review fool you.

Room Tip: We found the hotel via Expedia but booked it in person on our arrival. That worked out very well si...
