My husband and I were working in the area and were staying in the small motel across the street from Best Western when the snowstorm hit Maine. We were going back to our motel room but we couldn't because there was so much snow--knee-high-- in the parking lot in front of our room and it wasn't passable. No one plowed the snow til almost noon the next day. Since we couldn't park our van there, my husband talked to the manager of Best Western, told him about our predicament and asked him if we could leave our vehicle in their parking lot. What a relief when he agreed! We reserved a room there for the next day and extended for couple more days.
From the very first day, we were treated really well by the BW staff. The room was so neat, the bed was so comfy with lots of pillows, the flatscreen tv was huge, the bathroom was well lit, clean and with the essentials that they replenish every day, also has a hair dryer; there was a small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker. They did housekeeping everyday.
Free breakfast but make sure you present your breakfast ticket. They have an espresso maker and you can make your own cappuccino, macchiato, or lattè, and thermos for already brewed coffee. They have different kinds of teas, too. They have bacons, omelletts/scrambled eggs, sausage links, baked beans, corned beef hash, french toast. They also have cereals, pancakes and waffles (which you make yourself), yogurt, pastries, fresh fruits, and fruit juices.
The hotel has a fitness center, swimming pool and a bar.
The parking lot is spacious and they plow the snow during winter.
So our bad experience in our previous motel turned way better when we stayed in Best Western Merry Manor Inn. less

Thank you so much for sharing your experience, jameijin! It sounds like what could have been a disastrous experience really turned into a positive one, and I'm thrilled to hear how happy you were at our property. Our pool and our breakfast are a couple of the amenities that really set us apart in the greater Portland area, and we appreciate you mentioning all that we offer. I hope you will come back and stay with us again soon!
