Stayed here for two nights on the way from Manchester to the Blue Hill Peninsula. Location is convenient, just off Exit 48 on I-95, and is 10-20 minute drive on local streets to any location in Greater Portland. Room was standard Holiday Inn-Comfort Inn style. Room accommodations were decent, relatively clean, with good wifi and a small fridge. Carpet in... More

We were happy with the room and the free breakfast. Our cruise was for a week and the hotel permitted us to leave our car for the week without charge. We asked for, and were given, a first floor room. Location, just of the interstate and very close to shopping, was very convenient.

It wasn't the worst, but it wasn't the best. I know they're renovating, but if possible -- do yourself a favor and find this out ahead of time. I find it a bit confusing why they'd put us in an old room when it was clear the hotel wasn't fully booked. I should have done a bit of research to... More

This is an older hotel, but was very clean and staff were pleasant and helpful. I can appreciate the work that has and is going into making this a nice place to stay in Portland. We only spent one night here, but booked another night to finish our trip in Maine.

You can get very reasonable rates here. I arrived late left early both nights I stayed here so I was not able to use the pool. The decor is dated and in need of a facelift, but my room was clean and the bed was fine. The outdoor pool looked nice. The staff was friendly.

I just spent a night at this motel and we had a good experience. The rooms were big and clean with everything we needed in the rooms. The furniture are not new, but it's a motel. The complimentary breakfast is cold food only, but it's ok, we had breakfast in the restaurant since there was enough room. There' sang indoor... More

There were many negative reviews of this property that to me are simply not accurate. The property is clean, the staff is very helpful, the restaurant is reasonable, free coffee in lobby, and the pool is spotless. Everything works in the spotless room and the beds were extremely comfortable. This is a busy Inn and the staff is working to... More

Good location in Portland, near highways. Nice pool area. But they still have carpeted floors and unscreened windows. Good mattress, convenient furniture, good size rooms and easy parking. Did not try the hotel restaurant.
