We were so very pleased with the service, cleanliness, warmth of the hotel owner and his staff that we had to let everyone know. the room was great size for the money complete with a nice bathroom, wall mounted HDTV, new micro, refer, heater etc. the...

We spent a night at ABV Inn in Scarborough. The location was great for our purposes. Easy to access from the main highway and easy to get to Portland, our eventual destination. Upon arrival, I must agree with other posters. There was an odor in the lobby/house where you go to check in. This lobby building is not pictured in...

We have been traveling all over New England and found this to be the worst place that we stayed at. We normally follow Trip Advisors ratings and are unsure of how others rated this so high. First of all, the motel is not as the picture appears on the internet. I will try and provide a clear analysis of our...

It is very disapponting 2 rooms was not charged although the cancellation policy was passed and at time of checking in we canceled 2 rooms without charging to guest. I would let the guest know when you book reservation with third party, you can only cancel room with them, that way we avoid paying commissions to third party. We have...

We stayed here one night and were quite satisfied. The room we had was quite large, a king sized bed, and two arm chairs, and a refrigerator. The bathroom was quite large. The entire place was very clean. Breakfast was just basic - coffee and packaged danish, but that was fine. The price of the room was half of what...

I liked the location of this place because we were driving into Portland most days and it was very easy to get there from here. (Portland hotels were too expensive) I also liked that it was set off by itself on a neighborhood dead end street. We walked down this street several mornings for a pleasant stroll. We felt very...

Firstly I had very nice and pleasant conversation with some lady employee over the phone who quoted the price and potential "AAA" discount. So, we made a reservation. When we showed up manager (Jayesh) seemed to be in a very bad mood and very rude from the very start. Then I mentioned possibitiIy of "AAA" discount. He immediately accused me...

I do apologies for inconvenience you experienced while you were at Americas Best Value Inn Scarborough Maine. Since you booked room online at rate which was lower than AAA rate I have no authority to reduce your lower rate. I would suggest you to book on www.americasbestvalueinn.com in order get your desire rate. We have few different rates available there....

We stayed here last October while shopping and exploring the area. The service was great, the room was extremely clean and comfortable. I am returning this year with girlfriends! Highly recommend! It is central to many of the shopping areas, and close to lots of amenities!

My daughter and her friends had evening plans in Portland, so I needed a place that was not too far away. There were very few rooms available in Portland itself, and they were very expensive, so I broadened my search and found this motel. It was only 15 minutes away and reasonably priced. The room was very clean, the hotel...
