We stayed at Merry Manor July 16 and 17, '07. We chose it because they are pet-friendly and I like to travel with my dog whenever possible.It was also important to us that our hotel have a pool. The heated outdoor pool was heavenly (they keep it open and heated year round)and the indoor hot tub & waterfall are beautiful. Our room had a very comfortable king sized bed with lots of pillows, massage chair (fantastic), small refrigerator and microwave (we brought soda and snacks, and cereal and milk for breakfast-they don't provide dishes/utensils), coffee maker, TV armoire, desk and chair, free internet access and free local calls. Everything was clean, comfortable and attractive. The bathroom has bathtub/shower with massaging shower head, granite counter and two sinks, nice toiletries from Bath & Body works.
The Governor's Restaurant can be reached through hotel hallways so you don't have to go outside in bad weather. Restaurant is family oriented with good basic American food - we had a very nice lobster roll. - and a terrific bakery with lots of pies, cakes, cookies so we brought dessert back to our room after dinner.
When we bring the dog we expect to get the hotel's least attractive rooms but this was clearly not the case at Merry Manor. We were given a room at the back (very quiet) with easy access to the outdoors.
All in all, Merry Manor exceeded our expectations while being especially well located for access to everything Portland has to offer (we loved our trolley tour and harbor cruise). Old Port has lots of shops and restaurants. Portland Museum of Art is a gem. Outlet shopping in Freeport is only 20 minutes away. We will definitely stay here again.
