We stayed at Holiday Inn because it was across the street from UNE's graduation site. The hotel room was clean and had an available restaurant for breakfast and a comfortable lounge. They have a pool that looked okay if you had children and a fitness center that had a few of the typical machines that were very close together.Highlights -... More

Everything is good in this well-located, clean, and comfortable hotel. The sales and front desk staff were professional and very accommodating in every way. The WiFi connection was good. The room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. This is mostly beyond their control but the bathroom itself and the counter space are a tiny bit cramped but the... More

Very nice and clean hotel. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. Especially like the big and clean swimming pool Even though it is not really by the bay but they have the courtesy shuttle can bring you anywhere around. In fact it is closed to the most attractions, walking distance

We came to Portland last weekend and stayed at the Holiday Inn Friday-Sunday. We got a great room rate and were also given a bay view room. We were on the 11th floor too so the view was just spectacular. The room was very spacious and the bed was super comfy. We had breakfast on Saturday downstairs at the restaurant... More

I was in town to visit my friends for an unforgettable birthday weekend in Portland. My buddy recommended this place and told me to book in advance (about two weeks prior to coming) and to ask for a bay-facing room. When I arrived, I had such a great time here that we wound up staying a second day. The staff... More

We booked this hotel through a secret hotel site, so instantly managed to save a good amount of money. For the price we paid, this hotel was great! The hotel is situated about a 5-10minute walk from the shopping area, and a less than 5 minute walk to some great restaurants. There are two car parks either side, and watch... More

Had 6 staying for my daughters graduation. The rooms were excellent. The highlight though would have to be the staff. They went out of their way to do anything we needed. Two of the couples were elderly, and the hotel shuttled them to the graduation, as well as the restaurant for dinner. I could not have asked for a more... More

Everything about this place is not worth the price except for the front desk staff and the ONE person working in the lounge. All the other areas are understaffed. Rooms are average for a large chain. Double beds are advertised as queens. We won't be back.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night with our 10 yo son during a quick getaway to Portland. We splurged on the King Executive Suite which was worth it. We liked the roominess. We did not request a water view, but had a great view of the city. It was very quiet at night and the bed was... More
