We stayed at this hotel which is a short taxi ride away from Portland centre where the centre is a must to see however the hotels are expensive. The hotel was fine for the price. The staff were very friendly. We had a meal a the hotel on the first night and it was good for the price. Would recommend... More

We booked this hotel using the "name your own price" feature on Priceline. We were expecting a three-star hotel. How this place rates three-stars is a mystery to me. The room we were assigned was dark, musty, smelled bad, and certainly wasn't of three-star standards. The hallways were also dark and musty. It seemed the carpets haven't been changed in... More

I've never booked a hotel room on one of those discount websites and I will never do so again. We found this gem on Priceline for roughly $115/night. It was convenient to use the booking site because we were traveling with about 20-25 friends and family. We received a whoopie pie upon check-in and it was delicious. The lobby was... More

We stayed here on our way up to Bar Harbor. It was a very pleasant surprise! It is very nicely decorated and very clean! The pool was awesome! The breakfast was great and we ate dinner at the restaurant! I would absolutely stay here again!

Booked this Hotel through name your price on Priceline. Requested a King bed which was confirmed, however when we checked in it was 2 full size. They said this was because we booked it online and could not guarantee the type of room we would get. So was it Priceline that was wrong or the hotel? Not necessarily a deal... More

The first section of this review is about disability – but I will review the hotel itself later. Because of my wife’s disability booking a hotel from afar is never an easy job. Online booking systems are all very well, but even those that mention ‘handicap’ rooms never go into detail about handrails and whether the shower has a fold... More

We have stayed at the Fireside numerous times over the past several years. Each visit has been a pleasant experience. All members of the staff have always been very professional, courteous, kind and helpful. Any issues we have had have been resolved quickly and to our satisfaction. Special recognition should go to Aundray in the restaurant who is always cheerful... More

This was our home base for four nights while attending a Seminar hosted in their conference room as well as off-site. It's very obvious that it's a good deal, clean, huge breakfast included and works very well for families. We also saw a large number of soldiers staying overnight. The dinner food was adequate, but the liquor laws are a... More

I got this hotel when I used Priceline (Express Deals). I am disappointed that we got this hotel to be honest. The location is ok, but service was average (not horrible, but not great), and the room smelled like someone has just smoked ten cigarettes. It says it is non smoking, but the moment you walk in, you can tell... More
