Short take: Clean, inexpensive, convenient, comfortable, no bad smells!!!!

Long version: We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. We were worried at first because it was a very good price ($52/ night, May 2012), and you know the saying: "you get what you pay for." But we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a room on the second floor (Non-smoking). The room was very clean. The bathroom was a good size and the tub and sink looked almost new. The room was comfortable. The staff was nice. The location was good in that it was just off of route 1, there was easy access in and out of the hotel onto route 1 and it was close to major highways. There were many good places to eat in the area including Indian, Thai and of course seafood. Just about a mile up the road is a good coffee house (Scarborough Grounds). The hotel provided a continental breakfast which was about the only thing we did not like. Overall the hotel was a good place to stay and we have stayed in many hotels in the US and abroad. We would definitely stay there again if we were ever in that area again. Next time I visit I would ask for the same room again (I would not reveal my room number for fear everyone else would try and book it). Anyway the owner seems to be interested in upgrading the place because I overheard him instructing the staff to repair and paint one of the rooms after the guest in that room checked out.

Found this lovely inn just by chance. Couldn't believe the quality with such a reasonably price! Clean, neat and newly furnished. The owners were so pleasant and very accomodating. Not directly on the beach but with the pricing and accomodating make up for it! Lots of good seafood restaurants nearby as well. I'm definitely recommending this inn.

The rooms are huge, the location is fantastic! I will never stay at another inn in the area besides this one. America's Best Value Inn lives up to it's name by literally providing the best value, particularly for a coastal area like Southern Maine. My expectations were exceeded by the comfort of the extra large rooms, the hospitality of the staff, and the convenience of the location (5 minutes to the ocean, or 5 minutes to shopping and restaurants.)

My wife and I and our golden retriever stayed one night at Americas Best Value in Scarborough Maine in late summer of 2011. Perhaps it was because we got the dog room that explains why it was so lacking in amenities. There wasn't even a coffee maker. The first impression of our room was that it was........ not new, perhaps a little dreary. But the room was clean, the wi-fi and TV worked fine. The beds and bedding were comfortable and overall we got a decent nights sleep. However with the lack of amenities, we were glad that we were only staying one night. We were unfamiliar with the area and had a hard time finding a place to eat. There was a lot of traffic and it's hard to maneuver and look at the same time. In the context of economy motels, this was a good value, a little above average for this type of motel. A decent nights sleep at a low price. Though a coffee maker, even for the "dog" room would have been nice.

Easy to find just outside Portland. Rooms clean and ours had a fridge and a microwave which was great for a snack. Staff/Owners very helpful and fresh coffee was good.
Free wifi and very quiet.

This is a place to stay when you want a clean budget place with no frills. It is comfortable & clean and in a great location on route 1. We had a king room and it was pretty big; the bathroom was huge. It is an excellent value and I would stay here again.

I was pleasantly surprise after booking this motel - the owner was friendly on check in and the room was clean with a big bathroom. It is in Scarborough but not very far from many things in Portland - the Maine Mall, etc. It is on Route 1 so easy access off the I-95 and easy to get around the area. The breakfast was pretty basic but the coffee and everything was fresh. The owners put on fresh coffee as soon as I entered. Not too much in the way of upgrades - basic tv, good channel selection. But it is being well maintained and it was cleaned. That's what we were looking for.

Room Tip: Rooms are pretty standard.
