This place seems like most of the draw is for families and/or conferences for local companies. I had a brief stay over one night for business and didn't have any issues. Staff at check in and check out were ok. The pool looked cool, but I didn't make it there. There is a restaurant on site that they give a...

I have recently become very loyal to the Best Western brand, but after this stay, I am going to have to rethink that loyalty. This hotel did not meet the standard that I've come to expect at other Best Western Properties. There is still more good than bad, but sadly I will not be returning after this stay. I came...

Staff very welcoming. Room on the top floor overlooking the back car park, fairly quiet. Breakfast was full of variety both hot and cold and there was a coffee machine that made different types of coffee. The downside was that the table and chairs were too close together where the food was but the following morning we were told there...

Thank you for your recent stay with us. The pollen has been very bad the last few weeks and that was the yellow dust you saw on the table. We had to wipe down the tables several times throughout the day. I apologize for that.

We love to stay at this hotel, my husband enjoys the hot tub and pool, I greatly enjoy the comfortable beds and the great meals at the restaurant. The location is great, near Interstate 95, the Maine Mall and close to downtown Portland.

The Merry Manor is super-convenient to roll in off the interstate. Rooms are ok; nothing special but not bad. Place is a bit scruffy looking but all in all for the convenience, I can put up with it. Breakfast was included but it was a mob scene in the small room where breakfast was served. We did a box breakfast...

The staff was pretty friendly and responded to mist our request. The room we were dealt was dingy, bad odor, mysterious hair on the bed cover. The bathroom was tiny and dark, the toilet broke and the bathtub was clogged. Overall the room needs to be renovated. We tried unsuccessfully to get a different room as soon as we realized...

Serge, I apologize for your experience. This is not typical of our standards. In the summertime, we do sell out most nights. I am hoping you let our front desk know about the maintenance issues. We have our an amazing maintenance team on day and night to fix anything that may need fixing!

Stayed here to attend a friend's wedding. Convenience of hotel/restaurant/Wedding venue at one location made it very attractive. Price was right. Even though they are in the middle of a renovation, the staff and service was above and beyond.
