So. Portland, United States

The updates to the Merry Manor are amazing. As a handicapped person, the new outside covered entrance to the rooms is such a welcomed asset. My most favorite room 258 now boasts a new floor (no rug) yay! The widescreen TV, brand new couch, much welcomed massage chair and soft comfy clean beds with fluffy pillows are just part of...

This hotel is our favorite whenever we come to the Portland area. From the warm friendly staff to the clean comfortable room and beds, free breakfast and wifi, to the fantastic indoor outdoor pool this is the perfect hotel! It is close to downtown Portland, the Maine Mall and only a short 20 minute drive to Old Orchard Beach.

The room was spacious and clean. I felt relaxed and very comfortable with the room and the service from the staff. I left before breakfast was available, so the staff provided coffee and snacks, and a newspaper for those who checked out early.

This hotel has a wonderful location, right off Route 295. Both scenic & historical sites nearby to explore. If you are a shopper, The Maine Mall is just up the road. Hotel is clean and pleasant with a heated pool and spa area to enjoy some down time. I would return and recommend this facility.

We are happy you found the location of our hotel convenient. Our hotel is located off I-295 and I-95, which makes for easy access to all main attractions. We are just 20 minutes to outlet shopping in Freeport. Old Orchard Beach is just 15 minutes south of us on Route 1, and downtown Portland is 10 minutes to the north...

The staff were very friendly. Our room was clean and quiet (except when about 12 motorcycles parked just a few feet from our window at about 9PM - - VERY noisy) The location is very convenient to the Mall and many other shops. 1o minutes from down town.

Gary, thank you for your recent stay with us at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn. I sincerely apologize for the noise from the motorcycles. We had a travel group that was made up of all riders.

Older but well kept hotel, and a massage chair in the room, my husband loved it ! but guys beware the seat on the toilet will not stay up while you use it. The lid on the tank hangs over so far that the seat hits it. Comfortable bed, great cookies when you check in at 3pm. The breakfast room...

Thank you for your recent stay with us. We are delighted you enjoyed the massage chair. Not all the rooms come with a massage chair, only some of our King rooms.

Excellent value, friendly and courteous staff. The free breakfast was better than the typical continental style. The room was clean and the king bed was comfortable. Try it for yourself, you wont be disappointed. I'll stay here anytime I'm traveling to the Portland area.

3.5 stars. Most of the rooms are numbered above 200, and those open onto interior corridors. But rooms numbered 1xx open onto the back parking lot directly. Noisy, since any trucks park back there. Lots of light incursion around the curtains. Lots of air incursion around and beneath the door (particularly important during winter). And if you buy at Priceline...
