Best Western Merry Manor Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2014

The hotel was simple, not a lot of frills, but the service was excellent, the accomodations were clean and comfortable, and the location (near the airport and not too far from local dining/shopping) and the price were ideal.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are pleased that you found the accommodations clean and comfortable and service excellent. We are a older hotel and are always looking at ways to freshen up the hotel. We have many projects that we have completed and in the works that we are very excited about! We are sure our guests will love the changes we are making! We hope you will consider staying with us again when in the Portland area.

This hotel is very close to our daughters house and it suits our needs. We always stay at the Merry Manor Inn when we visit her and her family. The rooms are more then adequate and comfortable. We enjoy the breakfast. The pool is delightful. It is really cool when you can swim outside in a heated pool when it is 20 degrees outside.

AWESOME pool even during the winter. The best place for winter vacation with the kids. Truly enjoyed buffet breakfast on site for entire family. Family room allowed us all to have good nights rest during our stay. The price was inexpensive and well worth it.

Thank you for your recent stay at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn. We are delighted that you and your family were able to enjoy a winter getaway to our property and enjoy the heated outdoor pool as well as the Family Suite. Many larger and extended families love this suite because it has 4 Queen size beds! The room is divided into 2 separate sleeping areas with televisions in each room. Makes fighting over the remote less of an issue. We hope you will join us again for another weekend getaway. We are currently giving our pool area a "facelift" that we are all excited about. Come back in 3 weeks and see what improvements we are making!

AS always a great stay. Kids love the pool and hot tub. The restaurant remodel is gorgeous and the food very tasty. Being vacation weekend, I was expecting a lot of noise but it was so quiet. Got a great night's sleep.

Leeann, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and restaurant. We are delighted that you like the renovations that we made to the restaurant and that you had a fun time swimming in the snow. There are not many hotels in Maine where you can swim outside in a heated pool with the snow falling around you. Kids of all ages find this a unique experience that they enjoy. It was a pleasure having you as our guest. We look forward to your return visit!

We had things to do a few things in Portland & just went for a quick overnight. The room was very clean, a good size with 2 queen beds. The outdoor pool would be a great winter get away for families with children. Breakfast was good, not outstanding, but they had a nice variety.

Room Tip: probably away from the stairwells & doors.

I've been commuting for work for several weeks and just happened to find this place on line. In an effort to keep my costs down I chose this hotel blind because of the price. It's about 15 minutes from the downtown port area, right off the highway, it has a heated outdoor pool, hot tub, restaurant on site with a pub, microwave and mini fridge in the room.
When I arrived I found that it's a hidden gem. The staff is attentive and polite. The area is safe. The free parking is close to the entry doors for the rooms. The rooms are very neat and clean and everything is in working order. Big new TV, free internet, well working heating/cooling units. New beds. The cleaning staff is great!
Check in was a breeze with a special note to Laura who was extremely helpful both with my very first check in and my subsequent check ins.
This hotel is half the price of the ones downtown and frankly much nicer. The free breakfast is a fully cooked have it your way breakfast. Not the rubber eggs breakfast. Way more bang for your buck.
And as an added bonus....a massage chair in the rooms. Way to nail it Best Western.
I'll be back next week.
