We are delighted that you found your stay at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn. We take pride in our clean rooms and friendly staff. We are conveniently located directly off exit 45 off I95 and exit 2 off of 295. As you noted, we are just a few minutes away from the mall and just 10 minutes away from downtown Portland with its unique and fun independent stores. With school spring vacation coming up, it would be a great time to do some shopping for the warmer weather just around the corner. Hope to see you soon.

We stayed one night in this property, and want to go back! It's super easy to get to - right off the highway, and minutes from downtown Portland. Our room had a massage chair, which seemed strange at first, but was a really nice amenity. There was also a heated pool that was both indoors and outdoors. You get into the pool inside, and swim right out to the open air. We were there in November, and there was a drizzle of freezing rain - it felt soooo good!

Room Tip: Ask for a massage chair!

Thank you for taking a few moments to let everyone know what a great stay you had at the Best Western Merry Manor Inn. We do have rooms with massage chairs in our King rooms. Just let us know at the time of your reservation and we will do our best to accomodate you. We also have refrigerators and microwaves in many of our rooms, with spares when requested. Our year round outdoor heated pool is unique to the area. Where else in Southern Maine can you swim outside in a snowstorm? We provide our guests with many great amenities including Bath & Bodyworks products, free wi fi access, a computer to use in our lobby, and don't forget our freshly baked cookies in the afternoon. Coffee is always fresh and available 24 hours a day. Thanks again for staying with us and hope you return soon.

This was a great property to stay at and use as the 'home base' for the night. The indoor outdoor pool is fantastic as was the hottub. It was new years and everyone wanted to swim so it was crowded, but worth it. The restaurant was in the process of switching hands or some renovations, but the food and service were excellent. It's also attached the the motel. It only cost about $15 plus tip for a cab into the old port. The mall is only about a mile away. Good location. Reasonably priced.

I visited here looking for a Navy Ship Reunion hotel. I like to start off with the 'down side' so here goes. Damn, there wasn't anything on the down side. Now for the good stuff. I have run a few reunions and all have been at the 'big guys' ie: Hilton, etc and we always had a good time but just good. The MMI is more family oriented and friendly. After a friendly meeting with the manager, Don, I felt this could be the place. Over the next 3 days I went to the front desk and asked where to buy a bathing suite, for driving directions for Bath, where to get a great NE clam chowda, and 'tell me about the local micro breweries'. The front desk staff were absolutely great every time, and the chowda was to die for and I tried 3 brews. I signed the contract. This is definitely the place for me and my group; not to big, not too plain, very friendly, very personal (family oriented) and local.

Room Tip: on 2 visits, 2 floors, 2 wings, no bad rooms

We have stayed at this property a couple of times previously, but I was truly amazed when we arrived late in the evening and the night auditor looked up and greeted me by name. We didn't have a reservation, so it wasn't just the fact that I was the last arrival for the night. Paula was so kind, she gave us an upgrade to a room with a fireplace and hot tub - it was beautiful and immaculate. We had breakfast in the restaurant and were delighted with it. Our server was attentive, he explained the changes that were taking place in the restaurant. I thought they were doing a great job in making a smooth transition.

The staff in the morning was helpful in getting a cab. We enjoyed our conversation with them. The Best Western Merry Manor is in a really convenient location particularly if you plan on flying out of PWM.

Room Tip: The fireplace/hot tub suite was beautiful. It is a little more, but well worth it if you have a lit...
