Friendly staff...clean, large room (we had a suite) and the massage chair was fabulous! Quiet...comfy bed...big tv. Clean...did I say clean? I look forward to visiting Portland and staying here again. Oh and very reasonable rates.

I went to Fireside Inn for 4 days, 3 nights on a quilting retreat. Easy access from the highway. The room was clean and comfortable. The room set aside for sewing met our needs - tables set up, plenty of electrical outlets, bright. Our lunch of soup, salad, dessert, drink was brought in each day - the soup was fabulous!... More

For what our Pee Wee and Bantam Hockey Team and Families needed it was fine. Rate was great, staff was friendly, Hotel accommodations were OK. I'd stay there again either on business or with a youth group.

We booked a room at the last minute because of driving through a storm. The booking agent was not overly friendly and I was tempted to find a different place. I asked about government rates and she asked about out my military ID in about out way that sounded as if she thought that I was lying. The check in... More

We have stayed at the Fireside, several times, and the rooms are always clean, as well as the staff is always very helpful. No issues with noise, inside or outside the property. The wifi was a bit erratic during this stay. The bar and restraunt are convent , clean and a good value

We used the Park and Fly option to drop off our car before flying out on vacation for a week. While we were gone, there was a snowstorm. We were expecting to have to unbury our car before going home, but found that they had cleaned out the car for us! We never expected that kind of service. They offer... More
