I stayed here in February, 2015 with some friends to go to some of the breweries in the area. Hotel was nice, clean and in a great location. Having Sebago downstairs is a nice plus too. Will return!!!!!

I've stayed in the Hampton In several times, when on business in Portland. This is a classic Hampton Inn, with pleasant staff, clean rooms in a good downtown location. If you haven't been to Portland, ME, its a beautiful city with any downtown places to eat and enjoy. One negative is the parking downtown is a nightmare, especially in the... More

Another nice comment on the valet staff! Thanks for mentioning them. Portland is a great walking city when the weather is cooperating. Having Sebago Brewing attached to the hotel is certainly a plus when the weather isn't playing nice. Please come see us again. We would be honored to be of service.

Spent a snowy Saturday night in Portland for a couples get away and Sunday plans to meet up with our daughters fiance 's family at the hockey game Given all the bad weather the hotel was very clean. Loved the room view and the super dark curtain for sleeping. The hotel shuttle service is a must and very effective and... More

This would be my third stay at this hotel, and first for the family. The hotel is close to many different restaurants and shops. Bed is comfortable and breakfast is great. Valet is very accommodating. They warm up the car and scrap the ice and snow off for us. Gym facility is good and efficient. The only thing I thought... More

Spent 5 nights here while visiting family in the area. The room was clean & large and it was very convenient to have fridge and microwave since we got snowed in at one point. The location is perfect and all Old Port activities & restaurants were within walking distance....wonderful! Will definitely book a room here on our next visit!

I met a business associate in Portland for dinner and this was one of the places she recommended that I stay. The hotel is ideally located in Old Portland and was very close to some seriously good eateries, including the place we had dinner, called the Fore Street. The hotel is nicely decorated and the staff was helpful. I wanted... More

Close to everything. Awesome free breakfast, helpful staff. LOCATION! Nice place to stay, our go to for Portland. Lots of great restaurants nearby, if you like craft beer the options are insane. Novare Res is great along with Infiniti/Liquid Riot brewing. Hope this is over 200 characters so I don't have to type anymore.

I think not! Looks like a 4 star hotel with great service and a super location. The hotel is very modern and new and you will think you are in an upscale hotel. You can walk to anywhere you would want to go downtown with food choices as close as just outside the front door. Our room was wonderful and... More
