Hotel's Favourite

From the moment of arrival the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was very clean and quite modern despite the age of the hotel. The beds are a small double but the mattresses are very comfortable. The location is great and we had expected it to be a bit noisy due to the fact that it is on Main Street but it was very quiet and we slept with our window open! The grounds are lovely and well maintained and there is on-site laundry which was convenient. We would definitely stay here again!

We just stopped for the night before catching the ferry the next morning. A cut above some Best Westerns we have stayed in: lots of space, good towels, great water pressure, and a hot breakfast featuring eggs cooked to order, as well as the usual buffet of pastries, cereal, etc. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Rooms face the main road so you do hear from traffic noise, but not bad.

Only stayed one night. Great pool as we were very hot driving on a motorcycle all day. Got a drive up room so we could park in front. Someone in our spot and staff was very quick to get that person to move so we could park our bike right in front. Other guest was very accommodating and staff also. We appreciated this very much. Would stay again.

We chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the Yarmouth Ferry Terminal as well as a local seafood restaurant we intended to dine at We booked a room over a week in advance of our arrival and we were assured we would get the first-floor room that we requested. Sometime in the afternoon as we neared the destination we received a call that the Hotel had overbooked and they offered us a free room at another local hotel.
We had researched this location thoroughly and chose it for the reasons I listed above so I gracefully refused their offer fully expecting my reservation to be honored. Upon arrival, I was told that there were no first-floor rooms available and from there it went downhill. We were given a second-floor room and there were no handicap parking sites and no elevator service. We were able to get a parking spot close to the rear stairs and after struggling to get ourselves and our luggage and ourselves up the stairs we decided not to risk giving up our parking spot so
we reluctantly canceled our reservations at the Seafood restaurant of our choice and ended up having my wife walk across the street to the KFC and with each bite of the chicken meal we thought about lobster. My low rating of this property is based on the fact that they are not reliable.

I love when you book a budget motel and it exceeds your expectations. The room was clean, the kitchen area is a little aged for sure but they also put in a newer fridge. The kitchenette in the room had all the dishware and cookware one would need to make meals in their room (we didn't need to do that but everything appeared clean and in working order). The room was very clean, beds were comfy, internet worked great, relatively quiet but I can see where it could be noisy if hotel is full of guests - walls are thin. View of the water from the upper floor was lovely. Staff on front desk were friendly and helpful - and the included "grab and go" breakfast was a big added bonus! Also, free parking and pet friendly(although I didn't bring mine on this trip). Just a really lovely experience overall.

We picked the Best Western because usually they are nice hotels.
It looks good from the outside, the front desk lady was nice.
The suite with kitchenette is very outdated. The kitchenette is very old and run down and the bathroom too. Was not impressed at all. The duvets are lumpy, like stones in the duvet cover and when I asked about it I got the snippy answer that happens when you have to wash them all the time. Not amused at all! The bathroom was not clean and also old, with rims around the tiny sink surrounding where the dirt has built up, gross.
The walls are paper thin, we could hear the neighbours talk half the night, and they did not scream. Why do you have to occupy rooms next to each other if you know that the walls are so thin, I think there were maybe 5 to 6 rooms occupied....
I will not stay here again, sleepless night under a lumpy duvet!

We found the location to be ideal for exploring the old downtown part of town. We had bikes but it is easily walkable. If you like craft beer there are 2 breweries very close by. The room was spacious and quiet...we had a rear facing one. There was a pool that looked inviting but we arrived too late to take advantage. The included breakfast was excellent. Eggs were cooked for you when you arrived in the dining area and the super friendly staff were more than helpful!!! You felt like real guests!! I recommend staying here for sure.

We stayed for one night to catch the CAT ferry early the next am. I was pleasantly surprised with this motel. Our room was ready several hours before checkin. The front desk staff were very friendly. The rooms while not fancy were clean and the bed comfortable. The pool was nice, The lobby offered tables that you could use anytime. Breakfast was a choice of eggs cooked in several ways or oatmeal (which could be packed to go). Several others cereals and breads also available. The eggs were very fresh and cooked to order. Location is excellent. My only issue was better lighting in the rooms would have been appreciated.

Cute little motel very clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Due to COVID they provided a brown bag breakfast which was exactly what we ordered and had personalized messages on them. If we go back to Yarmouth, we will definitely stay here again!

The staff at the Best Western Mermaid in Yarmouth went above and beyond my entire stay. The front desk staff were friendly and attentive at the breakfast, always asking if I needed more and if I was enjoying myself. The room cleaning staff, as well, stopped me to ask if there was anything they could do to make y room more comfortable. The Eastern hospitality really shone through, I felt very at home!

They are not doing a buffet style. They give you a page with choices when you check in and then you can pick it up in the morning.

Do you have handicap accessible rooms?
Answer from BWMermaidYarmouth
Yarmouth
Hi Traveller, We are partially wheelchair accessible. We do have a wheelchair ramp. We have a few rooms with grab bars in them, however depending on the width of the wheelchair our bathroom door openings are on the smaller side and some guests may find it difficult to maneuver a wheelchair into the bathroom. I hope this helps. :) Thanks, General Manager
