Reviewed 30 April 2014

A real enjoyable stay, it is hard to find a bed that I can say is comfortable but the bed at the Merry Manor I rate an A+ slept as good as on my sleep number at home.The staff were wonderful the area quiet and a very good breakfast I will be staying with them on my visits to Portland Maine from now on

This is my favorite hotel in the Portland area! I love this place! The staff is friendly and welcoming and the hotel is reasonably priced. The beds are super comfy. I have stayed in a regular room as well as a suite and both are excellent. The rooms are well appointed and are very clean and neat. The hotel is quiet and set back from Route 1. It is about a 5 minute drive from the Maine Mall. The complimentary breakfast is a fully served hot breakfast in the restaurant attached to the hotel--not your typical complimentary breakfast! The best part of this hotel is the indoor-outdoor pool! I was here once when it was cold outside and the pool was heated and I swam from the inside out to the outside part and watched the stars and the moon come up. The hot tub is wonderful and also has a small waterfall. This hotel is Portland's best kept secret, indeed!!!!!!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are quieter.

I love that you called us the "Gem of Portland" and I totally agree! Many families recently stayed with us during April vacation and enjoyed a fun "staycation" right here at the Best Western Merry Manor. The heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi with waterfall are what makes us a "hidden" secret. We are delighted that we are your favorite place to stay in Portland! We look forward to many more visits AND many more great memories to come!

Thank you Richard for your recent stay with us. We are delighted that your stay was comfortable and that you were able to enjoy many of the amenities such as the heated outdoor pool! You are correct in saying that the hotel is easily accessible to I-95, as well as Rt. 1 and I-295! We are just a short ride to Downtown Portland and many shopping outlets and the Maine Mall. Many guests love that they can stay with us when visiting the Portland area without paying the higher rates they experience when staying in Downtown Portland. Plus we have the relaxing pool that our guests enjoy all year round! We hope you will come back and visit us again soon!

We have been going to the Merry Mannor in Portland Maine for the last 15 years. My kids love the outdoor heated swimming pool. We often just drive to Portland to get out of town in the winter for a few days. The staff are friendly and the rooms are extremely clean. Great improvements to the rooms and restaurant over the last 2-4 years. Great breakfast included in the price of the room. Staff are extermely kid friendly which has always made it our first choice in Portland!

Laura, thank you for your continued loyalty to our hotel! We love that families enjoy spending their free time at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn, especially when there are so many other hotels and destinations to choice from. If you like the changes that we have made in the past 2 years, you will love what we have planned in the future. This Spring we are adding a pitched roof to our King Wing as well as repaving the parking lot. This fall we will be completing renovations on 50 more rooms as well as many other design improvements. We are all excited about what is to come, especially when we have received so many compliments about the renovations to the Maine Table Restaurant and to the pool and Jacuzzi tub areas!

Looks are deceiving. When one pulls up to register, one would not expect the rooms are as well equipped and as comfortable as they are. Typical Best Western. The heated outdoor swimming pool and adjacent hot tub area are famous in the local area. Ever swim in a snow storm? We did, and it has been remarkable ever since. The restaurant has been redone...it is now a sports bar, modern, good food and comfortable. Excellent buffet breakfast. If I were to 'want' anything different it would be to add a sauna.
