We had a King which had a frig, large easy chair w/ottomon, long desk, large flat screen TV, lots of light fixtures, plenty of electrical outlets & one of the most comfy beds we had slept in during our trip so far. And I loved the soft, billowy, white comforter on the bed. The bathroom is very pretty, spacious &... More

When we checked in, the hotel was all out of feather free pillows. At 8pm the staff was willing to drive over to Maine mall to add to their inventory. That kind of service is worth 4 stars. Otherwise the hotel is what you'd expect for the price.

Rooms were dated and smelled musty. We had to change rooms because the air conditioner was noisy and only operated on high speed. The room we moved into had a microwave and refrigerator. Previous room did not have either. Rooms were large and clean. Front desk personnel were efficient, friendly and helpful.

This is convenient to the airport, and operates a shuttle. The rooms are what you might expect, and perhaps even a little better since this had previously been part of more upscale chain. Staff was friendly and efficient.

While the rooms were dated, they were clean, the staff was helpful, and they welcomed my small dog who was traveling with us. My great niece who was visiting was under the weather so I stopped by at noon to see if they might have a room for early check in, and they were quite accommlodating. This made a big... More

My first mistake when booking this hotel was using a coupon I had come across. My second and biggest mistake was thinking that I'd have a nice stay. At first glance the lobby is very nice. I had high expectations based on the appearance alone. The problems started when they gave me a room in the far corner. The door... More

We booked this off priceline for a very good deal as a stayover after getting off the NovaStar ferry before heading off into New Hampshire. Service was excellent, our room was clean, large and nicely setup. We found the hotel to be quiet and our room extremely comfortable. Wifi was excellent, they do not offer the Continental Breakfast but the... More

I really don't have a highlight or a lowlight for this hotel. The location is good for the airport, but not so good for downtown Portland. The hotel is definitely showing its age, but our room 's bathroom had been recently re-done and looks pretty good. No free breakfast was disappointing, but the $9.95 breakfast buffet couldn't be that bad... More
