This Motel 6 had all the basics: clean, towels, TV, wifi (free to AARP members, $2.99 to others). However, it was stark, and its having only one entry to the rooms - and needing a key to get through that - gave the motel the ambience of being in a dangerous city - or a penal colony. I can understand... More

WORST HOTEL ROOM! Smoking optional hotel which reeked of smoke stench. I saw people smoking even in the stair well. When we entered the room the first impression was, OK who stole all the furniture. Do the words "Empty Dorm Room" bring any pictures. Lights were wall sconces. You thought you were in a prison, because all the light shining... More

I paid $89 for an average room.Nothing fancy,No frills,But close to Old Port and ok for an over night.Staff was friendly.Room was clean and bed was comfy.Lobby was a little out dated. But the rooms were nicely decorated. Portland rooms can be very pricey. So we chose our room simply because it was the cheapest price for August.

The room I was given smelled like feces, vomit, or urine that had not been cleaned for a while. It was apparently cleaned up with a strong chemical smell. On top of that , the room had been smoked in and the polyester curtain had been burned just a bit so that it might hide the smell. This is not... More

My friends and I checked into this hotel and I did the standard check of the room for bed bugs. I work for a pest control company and I know how to perform a thorough inspection. I saw nothing when I looked but my sister woke up with bites the next morning. At first, because of her reaction, we thought... 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
