Best Western Mermaid Yarmouth

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

One of two motels nearest the CAT Ferry from Portland. Other reviews say it... it's a great place and walking distance to historic downtown Yarmouth. Staff are very knowledgeable, especially about local restaurants. "Instant" breakfast buffet is better than most of this type. Reserved through TripAdvisor; wouldn't do that again. We paid up front, when we got there at 1:00 AM they told us Agoda's payment had been declined. Was worked out the next day, but took some patience ! We stayed at Mermaid on return and paid less than Trip Advisor.

Room was very clean. Beds were pretty good. Frig and microwave, hairdryer provided. Breakfast area was a bit small but food was good, real plates and cutlery. Front desk gal was very friendly. Great overnight stop.

Room was so clean you could eat off the floor! The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless and you couldn't find a dust bunny anywhere, because I looked! Including on top of the light shades for the lamps. Staff were very helpful checking us in at 1:30 in the morning because of a late arrival on the ferry. We were in and out in minutes so we could get to our room and rest. She told us we could leave our vehicle out front if we wished and she was there all night and would keep her eye on it. I highly recommend staying there and will again in the future!

Reception staff was super friendly and accommodating. When we got to the room, we were pleasantly surprised to find a nice, clean, modern hotel room with everything we needed -- there's a mini fridge in the room, flat screen TV, and even a coffee machine and tea - and of course air conditioning. The room was spotless, including the bathroom, and the beds comfortable. Free wifi is available in the rooms, and contrary to what you often get (spotty and/or slow internet connection on free wifi), the signal strength was high (full) and the internet high speed (~20 Mbps both upload and download). For what you get, the price was definitely reasonable. Breakfast (included in the room rate) is served from 6 am near reception. The selection was quite good and everything was fresh. There was a selection of breads/muffins/bagel and other baked goods, cooked eggs & ham, cereals, and yogurts, as well as coffee/tea and juices, as well as a small selection of fresh fruits. All in all, I would highly recommend the Best Western Mermaid as a place to stay in Yarmouth.

Rooms were very clean, friendly and efficient staff, wonderful breakfast! We checked in at 2:00 am and were greeted by smiling faces. So efficient!!! Would definitely recommend this Best Western. I loved the 'wood' floors. Felt cleaner than rugs.

The cost of one night is over priced based on the quality of the room. Very small bathroom with sink outside of the bathroom. Rooms are small. Not much space to move around. Best part of stay was the heated outdoor pool.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but everything inside has been functional, clean, and very comfortable. The staff is very warm and attentive and the maid service is fantastic. We stayed at a very expensive hotel in Halifax prior to this and, although smaller in size, it rivals it in comfort and service. The shower is great too!

This Best Western is clean, comfortable, quiet, and has a great breakfast buffet ready at 6am for the early ferry. It's a basic hotel, but meets the needs of the ferry taker. The staff are cheerful and helpful.

Older facility, but enjoyed our stay. It was located near several restaurants and we were travelling with our dog and appreciated being able to pull up the car to the room and being able to exit with the dog quickly when we needed to do so. We would stay again if we go to Yarmouth.

We stayed one night with our three kids while travelling Southwestern Nova Scotia. The room was clean, the pool was awesome and the sunset was spectacular from this location. Conveniently located if you want to walk into town... about 15 min walk. Tim Hortons :) and playground only a block away. Would stay again.
