the room was clean on the small side(two double beds) but still comfortable for myself my husband and 2 of our grandchildren(3 and 5). The kids loved the cookies in the lobby and the fact that there is Lemonade for them as well as coffee for adults available. We didnt eat at the hotel but we use the pool it... More

This hotel has a wonderful location, we walked right across the street to watch the Portland Pirates play the Providence Bruins, very convenient to the Old Port. They were sold out the first night and we were here on points, so we only had two double beds, it was a bit small. However, this staff stood on their heads to... More

Loved this Holiday Inn. We were met with cookies and juice or tea - a nice touch. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was modern, clean and had a Keurig coffee machine. Very comfortable. We were accidentally given buffet tickets for the morning and on arrival at breakfast ( we were with a group ) they took them away -... More

Thank you for your review and the compliments on the room. In fact our dining room is not contracted out, but rather a part of our hotel. The contract for your tour called for a complimentary breakfast buffet, but after check in when the tickets were found in your envelopes the tour director advised us this was not the case.... More

Was in town for a show and stayed here. This is my second time around and am still pleased. Older place but upgraded and kept well. Keurig coffee machines are a nice touch. Outside of the price being a little rich for what it is, I'd stay here again.

This hotel provided an average stay. The lobby is nice, the rooms clean and the staff good. Nothing stood out either good or bad. We were on the fourth floor and we had a view of the roof in the forefront of our bay view. The view of the bay is truly beautiful day or night. They have a restaurant... More

Attended a wedding there, we are local to Maine. Parking lot guys let trucks in that could not clear the roof line in the lot. So then everyone had to turn around. There were 4 wedding crashers (not people the bride and groom did not like) but people who did not know bride and groom. Security at this hotel is... More

As the hotel attempted to explain to the people at the function, we are unfortunately not in control of who and who cannot attend events. We rent the space, provide the food and bars as ordered from the client, and serve the guests. When not only one, but a second fight broke out at the event, it was necessary for... More

The hotel is within easy reach of the Old Port and is opposite the Museum of Art. The hotel offers pick up from the airports and the Amtrak station which was very convenient and from pick up to reception and in the bars and restaurant service is very friendly. There is a real relaxed warmth to Portland and this is... More

I love Maine! This was a wonderful hotel. Within walking distance to everything we wanted. They helped us get a car when we wanted to go further out. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. Excellent service.

We booked into this hotel for three nights. The reception staff were so pleasant and very helpful. The room was fantastic with views overlooking the harbour. The bedroom was huge. The bed was very comfortable and the linen was good. Everything was clean and tidy. We didn't eat at the restaurant attached, as the walk down town was only 10... More

This is an old style HI but in a good location, if you are doing the tourist/historical/sightseeing Portland. Very easy walk to the Old Port area and right across the street from the Portland Museum of Art, to give you some bearings. The parking garage often fills up and you park somewhere else. Everything was clean and the front desk... More
