For a relatively inexpensive hotel, you get a lot. The staff is very friendly and responsive. Customer service is excellent. You get whoopee pies when checking in. The gym is very good. Better than you'll find at more expensive hotels. Continental breakfast is included. The room is average sized and clean. Some of the hotel is dated. If staying in... More

Biggest complaint is that our non-smoking room smelled strongly of smoke. yuck. The tub did not have a non-slip surface, and the provided skid mat was mildewy. Carpets badly in need of an upgrade. Free breakfast was so-so. Decent coffee.

We stayed here whilst on a tour of New England. The room was dated, dirty and thoroughly unpleasant. We asked to change rooms and were told by a somewhat disinterested member of staff at reception that they had no free rooms. We chose not to have dinner as the place was so dirty. Staff had blocked the fire exit in... More

The main reasons for choosing this INN was the proximity to the airport and the fact that they advertised a free airport shuttle. After reserving 2 seats on the 4:30 am shuttle it failed to show up. A taxi was then provided but this added unwanted stress.

Stayed here for two nights for a friend's wedding in Portland. Got the room for $104/night with Priceline Express Deals, which we did instead of choosing to spend $250/night to stay right downtown. It is a 15-minute drive to the waterfront - not bad at all. The front desk was really friendly and helpful. The room, however, was pretty bad.... More

This time I decided to take advantage of all the amenities this hotel has to offer. Swimming pool indoor & outdoor (heated) hot tub, dry sauna, and exercise room. Spent the weekend (S/S) here, very relaxing.

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
