Good place to stay for a quick trip or if you have someone in the hospital. It's close to Maine Med and Mercy and give a medical discount. Restaurant is in the hotel - very friendly employees. If you are there on the medical reason they give you a voucher for a free breakfast.

Myself, my boyfriend and 2 friends stayed here over Labor Day weekend. We had a great stay - were here for 2 nights, found the staff very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately didn't get to use any of the facilities because we were busy out seeing the city! But I definitely recommend, great price and 0 problems.

Stayed one night recently. I have stayed there before and it has been great, but this stay did have some issues. When we got into the room, there was a ton of dirt in the tub which got cleaned after we called. Also the heater was very loud all night and was hard to sleep. The beds are comfortable and... More

I went in to the hotel with low expectations. My husband and I just needed a room for the night before his bus to Logan Airport in the wee morning hours. The price was right, so my husband booked this one. Aside from the carpets and floors in the common areas and hallways needing a good cleaning, we found the... More

I have written several glowing reviews of the Clarion Hotel in Portland over the past few years, calling it an example of hospitality at its best for me, a 75 year old partially disabled local, who has used the hotel frequently during bad storms where power outages are likely at my home. Up until my most recent visit I loved... More

The Clarion is my go-to hotel in Portland, ME. I stay at this hotel before and after flying out of the airport (PWM), as well as staying there leisurely whenever I visit Southern Maine. It is a clean, safe, and inviting hotel. The hotel staff has always been very accommodating and helpful. I always feel appreciated as a customer. The... More

I stayed here for a week while working. The rooms are kept extremely clean even if the rooms are tad outdated, but still aesthetically pleasing. The cleaning ladies were all very attentive, and kept my rooms spotless. The front desk, and the restaurant staff were always helpful. The hotel has a nice cozy lobby that feels so good when you...

I was in need of a local refuge from the Blizzard of 2015. Instead of trying to travel 25 miles home in the storm and then try to make it back to work the very next morning I sought a room at the Clarion. I was happy to find a nice room, an inviting pool, and people running ragged to... More

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...
