I have stayed here several times when needing a night or two in Portland. The rooms are clean and comfortable and fine for a few nights. It's easy to find and the location is great, with a gas station right across the parking lot in case you need snacks. We did not eat breakfast here so no comment on that.... More

We found this hotel as an inexpensive option while my husband competed in a Tough Mudder event, but were so pleasantly surprised. The hotel has a nice pool and hot tub are (perfect after the Tough Mudder!!). Although this hotel is close the airport, I did not see a lot of breakfast options nearby so it was helpful that the...

I was in town on vacation in late December and got a room through one of the travel sites at this pleasant hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, and the location was very close to I-295, which makes getting around southern Maine quick and easy. The building was quiet overnight, but the halls were a bit noisy for my... More

We got this room at a great price using Priceline.com. However, I was not impressed at check-in when my husband and I were waiting for the key card and I reached for a mint in a container on the counter. An employee (woman) immediately removed the container after I had taken the mint and took it into a back room.... More

Used this hotel as a family area for rest near Maine Med during my mothers recent illness. Over 4 days, 6 rooms were rented at a special Hospital rate. We were most impressed by staff. The Shuttle to Me Med was just the ticket. Thanks to those that helped.

Traveled to Portland for a New Years Eve show at the Merrill Theater. Check in at the hotel was 15:00 but we were able to check in early at 13:00. The hotel is close to the highway with easy access after you find it the first time. ( It is set back in back of a service station ) We... More

I stayed Clarion Hotel in Portland for two nights in May 2014 while cycling around Maine. It was a lot cheaper than staying on the other side of I-295. SERVICE: Staff were friendly and accommodating. They held my luggage for me when I arrived early. LOCATION: Depends what you're there for. The train station is quite close by, which was... More

Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Plenty of room. (not like the 2 foot space that you sometimes get to walk through to get to your bed) Breakfast downstairs was great!
