Recent guest reviews

We took the CAT ferry from Portland, Maine to Yarmouth. The ferry gets in at 9pm and by the time you get off the ferry its between 9:30 - 10pm. The Best Western is close and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and they had a better than average breakfast in the morning. I had fresh berries with my yogurt and granola.

I was very pleased with the reservation, the greeting at front desk, delighted with the room and all its amenities, and the checkout. I also enjoyed having a hot breakfast before heading for work. I will definitely be back. Thank you.

This motel was overpriced, but there were no other decent options in the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable but in our two week trip in the Maritimes it was the worst value for money. We really like Best Western properties but this was not a flagship.

We stayed in room 204. Even the caulking on the floor in the bathroom is clean. Whoever cleans the rooms here deserves a raise - seriously. The room is spotless. I can't find a spec of dirt anywhere which is unusual for even more luxury style hotels. It's so clean I'm looking for dirt, she had to miss something! This cleaning lady, who obviously cares about her work, even left a note telling us to have a nice day. There's not a lot of choice for hotels in Yarmouth. If you want clean and comfortable, this is where to stay. The furniture all looks new and it's spotless. Don't let the outside fool you and if you're management reading this, I hope you treat your cleaning employees like gold, they do a stellar job for you.

We stay at The Mermaid quite often. We have friends that live in the area that we visit. We have stayed at most of the motels in the area, and we decided that this is the place we enjoy staying at the best. The staff are so kind and caring it's incredible. We stayed with our grand boys in our room a year ago. One of them was sick in the night. The gals were so helpful helping us with fresh bedding n more towels. The day staff inquired about him the next day. They really care about their clients. Amazing staff and great service.

Stayed one night on road trip. Great hotel, Clarence and Angie were awesome, really helpful, help us to fix a problem with expedia booking.Very clean room, didn't have the time to have breakfast, but overall recommended for anyone.

We came off The Cat at 9 pm and were at the motel 5 mins after clearing customs. This older motel on Main St (with Tims and McDonalds both visible from it) is very well maintained. Beds are very comfy. Modern furniture in the room. Nice touches like sheer curtains at windows. No carpeting on floors which keeps it fresh looking. Extra blankets and pillows in room if you need it. Back side is especially quiet. You can drive right up to your door on level 1. Breakfast ended too early at 9:30 for me to try. I would definitely stay here again. They offer CAA/AAA rates

Stayed two nights on motorcycle trip to Nova Scotia. The folks could not have been more accommodating. In particular, Clarence went out of his way to provide exceptional above and beyond service. And the maintenance guy (forgot his name) even helped repair a damaged motorcycle windshield!! Rooms were clean and well supplied and breakfast choices were great. Highly recommend.

Other than the coffee maker and coffee "Decaf" I think you can make it better. If you have a room for two of more people, you can't have a single cup machine maker. At the breakfast room they need to put water.

I was really impressed with the Breakfast, Sausages and scrambeled eggs, something normally not seen in the Motels. Nice clean quiet place to stay. We stayed there on the night of May 30, 2017, we will definately be going back again. Gary & Barb Sanford
