My boyfriend and I have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is perfect for anyone traveling out of the Portland airport! The hotel is clean and has a very welcoming atmosphere. Their free shuttle to the airport is on time, quick, and convenient. Plus they have park and fly so we know our vehicle is safe while we... More

We stay at the Holiday Inn Express in South Portland a couple of times a year. It is usually top-notch. This past weekend, it was just so-so. On check-in we were not offered the usual drinks or points option, unusual; on check-out when I mentioned it, she was apologetic and immediately rectified the issue. The rooms are always great and...

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, South Portland for may years. When it first opened it was a clean and fresh hotel with a great breakfast. Good place to stay if you were catching a flight from the Portland Jetport. As the years have gone by, the hotel has not kept up with renovations in my opinion. The... More

This is by far the best deal in the area.Large clean suites. Lots of near by shopping and restaurants. Hotel is just up the hill away from traffic so it is very quite. Nice fitness room and pool.I will be staying here again.

My only regret is I didn't get to stay longer, it's in a nice quiet location, yet close to restaurants etc. The pool and exercise areas were clean and everything was functional. The room was really quite a surprise, huge with a kitchenette. For the price I will definitely be staying here again. Close to the airport as well.

I recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel after flying into Portland, ME for a personal getaway. I flew in very late on a Thursday night and the free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel worked out very conveniently. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. Upon entering the King bed room I noticed that it... More

We found downtown Portland hotels to be too expensive but this hotel in South Portland was quite reasonable, had clean and spacious rooms, and a light breakfast buffet. Access to Portland is quick and easy. People using this hotel should have a car.

I recently stayed at this hotel for one night to use their park and fly package to catch a flight the next morning and leave my car for the week.

This location is near the Maine Mall and the Jetport but is quiet . The front desk was very helpful when I asked about a place for supper and she referred me down the road to the Marriot. The room was large and well equipped. I had a great night sleep

I have never had such a horrible experience at a hotel. Staff was not prepared to handle the numbers staying at the hotel, therefore some of the guests in our party did not have sheets or blankets for their beds. We finally did get some but not until we made another request on the second night. The staff at the... More
