We stayed here during the first week of July as a stop on our motorcycling tour. When we entered our room we noticed a stale smell almost like old tobacco smoke. We soon realised it was because of the damp. We tried opening sealed windows and failed. We noticed the wallpaper coming away from the wall below the ceiling. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to reiterate your concerns about the room. We apologize for the issues you experienced. It is true that during your visit we experienced rain storms every day with high humidity; this could have caused some discomfort in the room. If we had known you were experiencing any of these problems before you checked out... More

Great place to stay on vacation. We spent 5 nights there and will definitely stay there again. The free continental breakfast is good and a great way to start the day. It is a good location and allowed us to travel around but get back to the hotel to relax and have a swim. The staff were great and friendly.

I return here every year on my way to Acadia - very handy location just off route 95. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very clean. Love the continental breakfast, and when I have the time, I enjoy the full breakfast (for which they provide a big discount). Have stayed at other hotels in the Portland... More

My forth visit here. Friendly staff, good value for the room and available amenities. However the wifi is atrocious. Basically non-exsistant, very frustrating. Pools are heated and clean. Quick drive to Old Port.

The hotel was nice and clean. I left my prescription eye glasses in the room. I called the hotel to ask for housekeeping to check the room. I didn't receive a call back. I called again the next day and again was told the lead house keeper was given the message and they would return my call. Well its been... More

The Fireside Inn and Suites was a clean well-maintained hotel. (The room we were in, and others we saw, had laminate hardwood floors that were clean and in very good condition...no worn or dirty rugs which was a pleasant surprise. The staff was friendly and courteous, acknowledged you and asked if you needed any help, etc. Nice workout area, indoor... More

We did want to clarify one piece of misinformation - only a few of our rooms have the laminate hardwood flooring. We are the continuous process of updating and renovating rooms as... More

The hotel was everything you need for a short stay in Portland. The rooms were not very luxurious, but they were everything you needed. They had a decent selection of continental breakfast, a small gym, and a pool. The service was good, and the workers are very happy and pleasant to be around!

My wife and I stayed at the Fireside Inn and Suites for one night during a recent trip and found it acceptable but nothing more. The staff was friendly and the check-in and check-out process was efficient. The hotel wasn't in excellent condition, but it also wasn't in poor condition. The room was ok--fine, but nothing spectacular. The breakfast was... More
