We were on our 4th day of our Harley bike trip and were looking forward to our stay at the Merry Manor as we have always enjoyed staying at Best Westerns. Laura checked us in. She was wonderful..even upgraded us to a suite at no extra charge. It was super comfortable..will come back in the winter to enjoy the fireplace!...

This hotel was the best place we have stayed. The hotel was very clean. The staff were pleasant. The pool and spa was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. We did not hear people coming and going all night slamming doors. The breakfast the next morning was very good with a lot of food choices.

Looking for a great hotel with clean comfortable rooms, outstanding staff and family or couples friendly, look no further! The Merry Manor has it all!

Very Nice hotel. I am usually a very faithful Hampton Inn patron, but I would stay here again next time I'm in South Portland. We were allowed to check in early because a room was available and the check in staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in an interior room and it was clean and looked to be...

We stayed one night here, and found the motel tired and in need of updating. The beds were fairly comfortable, we had free WiFi. The staff was very friendly, courteous, and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast was good.

Fabulous hotel! Pool was bath temperature, beautiful low lighting in the hot tub and pool area surrounded with hundreds of flowers in the courtyard. Lots of great nook type sitting areas around the hotel and beautiful rooms. Great breakfast service and all staff were very accommodating! Great location as a home base for Maine's various tourist attractions too!

Last summer we were in New England after a wedding in Burlington, Vt. After an awful hotel in Bar Harbour we stumbled upon the Merry Manor in Portland. It was a dreary, rainy coastal day. The Best Western staff was excellent. As luck would have it, we were upgraded to a beautiful, rustic 4th floor suite. There was a cosy...

Ted, we apologize for your stay in Bar Harbor, but happy to hear we could salvage part of your vacation. It sounds like you were upgraded to our Maine Lake Lodge suite, that looks like a log cabin. It is my favorite suite, especially in the winter with the fireplace!

Stayed here with our bus tour group. Rooms were nice, clean. Hotel provided a delicious buffet dinner upon our arrival, and the breakfast buffet was more than adequate. Staff were all very friendly. Hot tub was amazing! Only comment is that allergies for several guests were very severe. Don't know why.
