The staff were all very friendly and the service was great. My room smelled like smoke, which was a bummer. The price couldn't be beat, and it's not too far from downtown portland (just a few stops on the highway).

I have stayed here quite a few times for work. Everytime I am here, staff do whatever they can to help you out with anything. They are very friendly and make the stay feel like it is your home away from home. I tell all that this is the place to stay in the area HANDS DOWN!!!

GREAT WORK!!

We had to pick up someone early at the airport and decided to stay overnight d/t the distance from our home. We were allowed to check in early and enjoyed the day at the pool. It wasn't a well landscaped area or a scenic setting, but the pool was refreshing and clean. The room was nice enough, the bed very comfortable and overall clean but aged. There was a nice massage chair in the room, a microwave and refridgerator. The price was reasonable, and we will keep this in mind next time we need an overnight in Portland.

As Director of a non-profit charitable organization delivering state-wide services for homeless and at risk pregnant and parenting young women and their children, I frequently stay at my absolute favorite hotel, The Merry Manor, some weeks I am there up to four nights a week. All staff welcomes me with a personal hello, genuine smile and it feels like "coming home" after a long hard day at work. For the past three days myself and key staff met here at this motel to meet with a grant writer from MA to complete the writing, compile and ready a million dollar grant from the Federal Government that had to be submitted to Washington, D.C. by Monday. The stress was huge trying to bring an office with us and of course everyones stress level was over the top. Well, if we are successful in being awarding this grant part of our success will be because of this FANTASTIC crew. They opened up one of their conference rooms, delivered tables to our rooms and we so kind and supportive. Worth a milltion!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reviewed 22 July 2008

I had to catch a 6:30 a.m. flight out of Portland and stayed at the Merry Manor. It is close to the airport, the non smoking room I requested really WAS a non smoking room (no lingering smell), the beds were comfortable (two queens), and while I was not happy to hear the front desk girl's voice greeting me at 4:30 a.m., my wake up call came as requested and on time. The place has a GREAT pool, by the way, the staff was friendly, there is a Governor's Restaurant attached, which I consider a great convenience, and the facility is pet friendly, too. All in all, the Merry Manor is a good deal in the Portland area.

  • Liked — Clean room , comfortable beds, close to airport, attached restaurant, pet friendly, helpful staff.
  • Disliked — Be sure to get good directions on just how to get there.
