The desk clerk was rather surly. They do give you a nice homemade Whoopie pie when you check in. The hotel is U shaped with only one elevator on one leg of the U. Of course our room was at the other end ...a long walk. It felt dirty. The rooms were shabby and needed up dating We didn't try... More

the reasonable rate and pet friendly attracted us, good continental breakfast and nice counter personnel. I'd give it five for value but it is older, etc. met our needs perfectly! Tinkerbelle gave it two paws up!

Stayed there a few weeks ago and it is a case of what you pay for. The rate was very reasonable. The room was clean and that is where it stops. Do not expect much for the restaurant. It is understaffed and we waited for oor server to take care of a full dining room. You get what you pay... More

basic inexpensive accommodation. Tired, dated, showing much wear. But then again the price was low and we slept fine. Location is near highway so convenient. Functional but your night will not be memorable. Caters to bus groups. Took the money we saved by staying here and went downtown and spent on a very nice meal that was memorable - and... More

NOT A 3 STAR HOTEL.....2 STARS, and only for the amenities and proximity to the highway. We arrived on a Sunday in June and were pleased to watch the tour buses departing, leaving the parking lot less than 1/4 full. The lady and gentleman behind the counter were very accommodating and were happy to put us in the "quietest wing... More

If it wasn't for the friendly service, continental breakfast and whoopie pies upon check-in this hotel would get a poor rating. The rooms and building are extremely outdated. From a young family stand point it caters to the above 60 crowd.

This hotel offers everything for the traveler. Staff is wonderful and helpful. They told us it is a refurbished Holiday Inn; accommodations are great, and the ambiance is warm and welcoming. It is near some of the best touring sights available. Their Breakfast staff is headed up by a gentleman named Aundrey, a lively host with a truly unforgettable personality...speaks... More

Service was okay. When checking in I was told there was an elevator near my room, due to my husband being disabled, there wasn't. Room was clean somewhat, just not near the window ledge. Staff was very polite and answered all my questions.

I stayed at Fireside Portland, ME in early May for my kid's sports tournament. This place turns out to be a pretty decent size hotel/motel that locals coming in to have fun with swimming pool and music. Reception was really nice, especially Thomas at the front desk. I had a little fender-bender when I parked my car at night. As... More
