Do not stay!!!! So bad I cried!! The hotel smelled of cat pee. The toilet leaked all over the floor for 2 days! The room looked like Jail!!! So dirty and the rooms do not get cleaned everyday! You have to bring your towels to the front desk for clean towels! The room would smell of smoke in the morning!!... More

On Friday, August 8 my brother and I, along with my niece (8) and my son (11) stayed at the Motel 6 in Portland Maine. When we checked in, I verified that our reservation was for a non-smoking room (I have allergies and am asthmatic). We were told that it was a non-smoking room. As we left the elevator, we... More

Made reservations through Travelocity. Called this hotel to make sure our reservation was guaranteed for late arrival and they said "no problem". Arrived from the airport at 11:30PM and discovered they had given my room to someone else and they were out of rooms. Said credit card was "denied". I knew it was definitely not a problem w/ my credit... More

We reserved this hotel because their website said they had queen sized beds. Lies!!! The room was about the size of a closet and the beds were NOT queens. The hallway looked like a college dorm and smelled like one too. Do yourself a favour, stay somewhere else!!!

I have never had a worse experience at hotel in my life. I had left a sweatshirt there. Upon realizing I don't have it, I called to inquire if they have it and was told that they do. I was thrilled and asked to send it to me please since we were already back in New York. To my surprise,... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was reasonably clean but was missing what I considered to be basic amenities: shampoo and a coffee maker. For a similar price I have had better experiences with other motels.

for once, I did not check the reviews before I booked this hotel since we were just looking for a one night stay after our plane arrived after midnight. Big mistake. We were put on the 4th floor - a smoking floor - because they do not offer you a choice. The hallway was filthy - it looked like it... More

We stayed or 1 night and the room was clean and staff was friendly. When we arrived, there was a strong smell of Chlorine in the hallway. Our room was small but usable for one night. It was perfect for one night or 2 nights and it was cheap.

...and I was told it was non-smoking. I hate the smell of cigarettes and couldn't sleep because of it. When we got there there was only 1 towel for 2 occupants, and the bathroom light was broken. Disgusting.

Do NOT stay here unless you are literally looking for a place to crash for a few hours and have no sense of smell. I had read the bad reviews, but stupidly thought people were just overreacting. Until I went there myself. It is disgusting. There were hairs in the bathroom, hairs on the floor, the room was "non-smoking" but... More
