I always liked the rooms in this hotel as it has a sofa/chair/desk with a little kitchen in the entry and the bed is semi-separated by a partial wall. The furniture is getting a bit rough and the carpets are starting to show their age, especially in the hallways. In front of the elevators, the carpets are all bunched up... More

We arrived late in the day to the hotel and was very pleased to find that the hotel was located a mile from the Maine Mall where there were many different choices for dinner. The breakfast was OK, plentiful but not the best quality eggs. We have had the same type of eggs in other hotels that were tasty but... More

From the outside the hotel looked great. Once inside it was not what I expected. The floors were dirty. The carpet in the hallways was bunched into the center of the walkway, causing a huge tripping hazard. The rooms were supposedly non smoking. My room smelled musty and must have been a smoking room in the past. The furniture was... More

We needed a hotel for a stop between Nova Scotia and Boston. This hotel was fine but it was dirty, sticky floor in the elevator, stains on the upholstery in our room. Breakfast was ok, typical Holiday Inn Express. Easy access on and off 95.

We got a King suite for $99.95 with a coupon from the Maine visitor's center near Portsmouth. Without the coupon it would have been $169.95!!! The suite was unbelievably spacious, with a couch, tables & chairs and separate areas for the desk as well as the sink/mirror area. It had everything: frig, microwave, coffee, iron, hair dryer, wardrobe, plenty of... More

I have stayed here before a few years ago and the beds were wonderful and the breakfast was outstanding. This time however, I had called to book a room and got the front desk of a Holiday Inn but I didn't realize that it was for Portland Oregon, not Portland ME. When I got the hotel in Portland ME of...

Holiday Inn has upped their game since I last stayed at one years ago. The Holiday Inn in Portland exceeded my expectations, as did this one. Rooms are large and clean, and most important to me - quiet. Breakfast was a little disappointing, but enough to at least get started on. It's right down the driveway from the Marriott Sable... More

My sister and I stayed in this hotel for one night, as we were attending a family wedding in the area. Our stay began on a positive note, as we requested and received an early check-in time so that we would have time to get ready for the wedding. On check-in, we were warmly welcomed by Melissa at the front... More

For a small city, it seems to me that Portland hotel prices are much higher than one would expect. I stayed here three times this summer and very much enjoyed the hotel. Each stay, I used a $99 coupon which I thought was very good value vs the standard senior $130 rate. It is situated in a business park and... More

Basically the quality of the hotel is reasonable. Good size room. The decoration is a bit outdated and the facilities like power outlets are not up to today's standards. Cannot charge your phone on the bed table. Simple breakfast on paper plates and in paper cups. For all this I had to pay a pretty high price. The competition between... More
