Average hotel in a pretty good location. Nothing remarkable about the space or front desk. The staff at the breakfast area were always friendly and very polite. Cons: There is valet parking for the hotel and the lot is right on site and easily accessable. Purely a money maker. Also found the air system very noisy and the amount of... More

Stayed for one night after a 10 hr ferry ride from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. In a lovely location near beautiful cafes and restaurants, 5 minus walking distant and near lovely local stores along the harbour. Super service, quick, prompt and convenient - would definitely go back! (Also impressive room interior decor and style)

This is a pricey hotel for the area and state, but the location is perfect! There was a concert on the pier the night we stayed, so it was great for us with no traveling involved after the show. The staff was excellent. Nicole was extremely helpful when I confirmed my reservation and the rest of the staff followed suit.... More

A fantastic hotel. It's fairly new very clean and comfortable. the front desk staff was welcoming and gave good restaurant suggestions in the area. The walk is very close to all the downtown restaurants and shops. Behind the hotel is an amazing oyster bar you must check out if you at all like those. Duck fats is also close behind... More

Staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect === close enough to walk to tourist activities but not close enough to have any disturbing noise. Rooms are large, clean, have fridge and micro, and have plenty of outlets for technology devices.

This is a nice, clean standard hotel. The staff were friendly, especially the breakfast staff. The rooms are spacious and we had a water view from the third floor. The location is ideal. You can walk about two blocks to the Casco Bay Ferry terminal and the Old Port area, but you are not in the middle of all the... More

This was the nicest Hampton Inn we EVER have stayed at. It is in a great location within walking distance to shops, the water, and excellent restaurants. The rooms were SPOTLESS. Everything looked brand new. The best part was that it was GIGANTIC and VERY gorgeous. Also every room contains a small fridge and a microwave oven. The Hampton Hot... More

Can't beat the location of this hotel on fore street. Two fantastic restaurants (eventide & east ender) are on the same block, the ferry is down the street, and the city's beautiful park is a half mile away. Even the attached micro brewery (Sebago) brews some damn tasty beverages. As far as the hotel itself, $299 is pretty expensive for... More

Sorry to hear of your experience with the smoking room. My guess is their days are numbered at our hotel. I am sure we would have moved you to a non-smoking room if we had been able to do so. We appreciate you staying with us and hope we have an opportunity to be of service to you again soon.... More
