We stay at this hotel every time (if possible) when we are in Scarborough. I have family in the area and we visit at least a couple of times each year. The hotel is clean and the rooms are huge. The bathrooms are very big too. The manager and the staff are all very accommodating and remember us when we...

If possible, we stay here every time we are in the Scarborough/Portland area. The rooms are a good size and clean. The manager and staff have always been very accommodating of our requests. The Inn is convenient to shopping and restaurants and makes for easy day-tripping. This is great value for your money and I always recommend it to friends...

The hotel and employees are wonderful. Very accommodating. The stay was very pleasant and relaxing. The rooms are wonderful, makes you feel like your at home. Not to far from things to do, and if you want to stay in they have a few restaurants that deliver, for that nite in. Have a continental breakfast for those early morning starts....

It was important that I had internet service. It was very spotty, until the manager brought the wifi extender to my room, at the end of the hotel. He made sure it worked. It took only one mention of the problem for it to be resolved.

We recently stayed for four nights at this motel. First, let me say that the previous month we stayed at a nearby "higher end" motel which cost twice as much and offered less as far as cleanliness and other comforts (TV had technical difficulties, phone jack kept falling out of outlet and the office people did not repair it, sheets...

We enjoyed our six night stay here. Our spacious, attractively decorated, clean room had desk with chair, and a small circular table with two chairs. The spacious bathroom solved a problem for us. I moved a plastic lawn chair from the balcony into the bathroom so my wife, who wakes up earlier than I do, could read there without disturbing...

We spent a night at ABV Inn in Scarborough. The location was great for our purposes. Easy to access from the main highway and easy to get to Portland, our eventual destination. Upon arrival, I must agree with other posters. There was an odor in the lobby/house where you go to check in. This lobby building is not pictured in...

We have been traveling all over New England and found this to be the worst place that we stayed at. We normally follow Trip Advisors ratings and are unsure of how others rated this so high. First of all, the motel is not as the picture appears on the internet. I will try and provide a clear analysis of our...

It is very disapponting 2 rooms was not charged although the cancellation policy was passed and at time of checking in we canceled 2 rooms without charging to guest. I would let the guest know when you book reservation with third party, you can only cancel room with them, that way we avoid paying commissions to third party. We have...
