Stayed in this hotel for one night. We arrived late from our cruise in from Nova Scotia and the room was available as expected without any issues. Room was clean and the amenities were nice. Breakfast area was well appointed but quite overwhelmed with people. So much so that we had to grab breakfast and eat back in our room... More

I will admit at the start that I am hard to please but this place made me happy.We had a little bit of a rough start though. I didn't see anywhere that the hotel offered a shuttle from the airport so we took a cab. I wish the website would have said that they did. I didn't know until I... More

Beautiful room in a newer Hampton. Modern lobby area and room, indoor pool, restaurant right next door but not really needed as so many better choices in Portland. Shuttle by appointment or phone call from airport--but hotel not on big board at airport--which made us nervous at first. Shuttle drivers very accommodating and informative though. Only takes about 15 minutes... More

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

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.
