Best Western Merry Manor Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Old hotel, carpets smell, room has odor of Clorox , no fresh air.

The beds were comfortable. The hotel was not far from old port. We took an uber and the cost was around $10. The hotel was very quiet. I would stay again.

We were surprised how nice the motel is. We were expecting something not quite as nice since there are so many motels in the area catering to beachgoers. The large room had two vanities with sinks, a Keurig coffee maker, a 55 or 60 inch TV, and a comfortable mattress. There also were plenty of electrical outlets. It had a laminate floor and an updated bathroom. Not bad for a motel that's been around for a while. The free buffet breakfast had everything you could ask for, with two very friendly attendants keeping the food replenished and the room clean. The check-in was fast and the lobby had great coffee machines . Less than 10 minutes from the Maine Mall, 8 minutes to one of the best seafood restaurants I've ever been to (Dock's Seafood; large twin lobsters for $25.00, with great Maine Potatoe french fries or baked potatoe, and cole slaw). Also 20 minutes to Portland, Scarborough beach and Old Orchard Beach. We didn't use the pool, but it looked fine.

We were looking for a mid-price hotel while visiting Portland and the surrounding area.

Disappointed that the hot tub was not working. I went to the front desk and told the that the water was cold and he checked the control and said that he would have maintenance check it out. I went swimming in the pool and no worker came to check it out. I went back to the service desk and the guy said, oh the part had not come in. I always stay at this hotel and was really looking forward to enjoying the hot tub. The hotel was completely packed this night. They should have been on top of this.

Rude and uneducated front desk, gave us outside entrance room, would not let us change, said that what we ordered(not) 2x3 toilet area (really)! Double hit our card tied up $1000 they didnt care

Rude and uneducated front desk people, double swipped card, and didnt care, barely able to fit in bathroom, I'm only 200lbs

Great location, 15 min from Old Orchard Beach, 10 min from Portland, 5 min from the mall. Nice, clean, friendly staff

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Loved the pool and Hot tub! Breakfast was fantastic! Looking forward to booking again next month! Awsome time! Peggy Wilson

Very good deal. Breakfast was great and the pool that is half indoor and half outdoor is warm even when it is cold outside!

Good hotel. Nice pool/spa. Good breakfast but the breakfast room is a little small. Service was marginal-poor in the restaurant. Lots of other great places to eat nearby.

I stayed at this hotel as it was less expensive than being right on the water where the conference was. They have an amazing heated pool, you swim from inside the building to the outdoors we got to swim under the moon despite the cold weather. I'd say the only thing wrong was the bacon on the breakfast buffet was weird, but overall the food was decent and the room was nice.

Planned a long weekend in the Portland, ME area and this hotel was centrally located to Portland, South Portland and other areas we visited. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The free continental breakfast was very good. The staff was courteous. Overall, a good value.

Great hotel and resturant. Empolyees very nice and helpful.

Very comfortable and clean. The continental breakfast was a little sparse.

Booked a night here due to the price of the room - under $100. The room was small, pretty dark, and looked over the parking lot. It was clean and the front desk staff was cheerful and helpful. The free breakfast was good and the pool/hot tubs were good too. All certainly acceptable, but the place felt worn down. The setting was roadside on Main Street, South Portland, and this is probably why it was a bit uninspiring to us overall. We did not do enough research on this beforehand.

It is hard to believe that in 3 star(?) facility the only TV option was analog reception and not digital. No stations in high-def. This is 2015!!! Also what was supposed to be a FULL breakfast was really a glorified continental buffet setup. As for the room itself, it was okay except for the bathroom which had an old plywood door that the veneer was partly peeled off. Until they upgrade the TV situation this place is an overpriced bad value.

went for a getaway and was pleasently suprised at how great and friendly the motel and staff was. I perodically travel to this area and will not stay anywhere else.

Merry Manor Inn is a great hotel in a great location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We managed to forget our toothpaste, but they have personal care items available for just that problem. The pool is awesome - inside and outside! My kids and I were swimming outside, at night, in March. A very cool yet warm experience for all of us! We had an exterior room this time, and the heater was very loud. I will make sure that I choose an interior room from now on.

clean, comfy, and convenient..Free breakfast is a plus

Rena, On behalf of our entire team we apologize for the inconvenience. We are currently in the middle of a 5 million dollar renovation. We do hope you give us another chance to impress you with the upgrades. Best wishes from the Best Western Merry Manor Inn.
