4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a good experience! The hotel was very easy to find, and conveniently located. I am from Massachusetts, and originally from Maine. My sister decided to throw my bachelorette party in Portland. We rented three rooms, for 10 girls. The rooms were clean, and well kept. One compliant I would have, is there were no refrigerators in the room.... More

close but no too close to 295 and airport. Very quiet. good value for the breakfast.$9.95 9.95 very large breakfast buffet, with eggs cooked to order. Very good service. A bit pricy for an average hotel room, but I guess portland in the summer is high. The room was very clean as was the bath. The free parking is a... More

Approximately four times a year my wife and I stay here because of the hotel's proximity to the Portland Transportation Center, the Jetport, and the Old Port. Even now it is a completely acceptable hotel experience, including the food quality in the restaurant. However, unfortunately, I feel that over the past year several qualities have declined. Specifically on this most... More

Easy access to the airport (the is a complementary shuttle and park and fly parking is available at a very reasonable rate) as well as to the numerous restaurants and shops in old port. The staff are top-notch and eager to please. This hotel is pet friendly so expect to see people with their canine babies in the hall, stairs... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Clarion in Portland Maine under their 'medical discount program'. I stayed one night and my wife stayed three nights. The price was great with the medical discount and the staff was wonderful. A few problems, the facility is in need of an upgrade, old carpets, one elevator "slow", old furnishings and just... More

I stayed here for two nights while on vacation in New England. The hotel and room were very clean. It's clear that they have updated this hotel. My room had plenty of towels, washcloths and hand towels. I also liked that the coffee maker in my room was kind of like a mini Keurig and had four packs of coffee... More

Room was clean, with refrig and micro which helped with the medial supplies I needed. Shuttle to Hospital free, with a friendly driver. Got a medical discount on the room and a free breakfast coupon.

This facility carried a 3 Star rating on Priceline, so I thought we would be safe. This Hotel is not worthy of 1-1/2 Stars. The staff was polite, but incompetent, the facility is tired and not well maintained. I arrived late with my wife and daughter only to be given the keys to an already occupied room. - My apologies...

Stayed here to show a few friends the city! It was a great location for us, right off the night way and a quick drive into the city. All of the staff we met were incredibly friendly and helpful. A big perk was if you needed an extra bed in your room they would set you up with an air... More

This was a nice place, but no free breakfast or fridge in room. Last summer we traveled by motorcycle across the USA and had free breakfast and a fridge at places 1/3 the price. Other than that, I would stay again. Quick easy Uber ride. Use my code 8xzyvue for a $20.00 free ride. It cost under 10 bucks each... More
