The worst experience I've had at a Holiday Inn. Started with the receptionist at check in. What a grouch!! Them she stuck us in the room by the elevator! Noisy!!! I'm sure there were plenty of other rooms, the lot wasn't even half full!!Bed was as hard as a rock. This was not what I expected when I decided to... More

Blankets provided for roll away and pull out had holes in them.....appeared to be cigarette burns. Had to make the beds myself. No mattress pads on... More

I don't recommend staying here. There are several good things about this hotel, but they are all useless because of the cleanliness and smell of the room. Although the staff was nice when I complained, the room was "cleaned" twice more by someone who obviously had vision and scent issues because it only slightly changed from thoroughly disgusting to less...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.We were a party of four with dog and were quite comfortable in their suite style rooms. Rooms are clean and they are pet friendly. It is located in a quiet area and there is a sidewalk to walk your dog. Free wifi worked well and enjoyed the complementary hot breakfast. Restaurants within a five minute drive.... More

Hotel is very convenient to many destinations in Portland. We stayed there on a busy night and had great service. The room was beautiful and huge. The view was perfect. Breakfast was outstanding and the beds were very comfortable. Beautiful property and great staff - what more could one want?

I recommend this to all. Top notch across the board. I am also pleased that I didn't smell any chemical air fresheners nor did I see any of those auto air fresheners hanging in the hallways or lobby. I have a chemical sensitivity as does 30% of the population and its very important that the air around me is not... More

A last minute decision to stop at this hotel, and it was a very good choice. Nice suite, comfortable beds and a very good selection for the inclusive breakfast. Paid a lot more money at many hotels for a lot less.

Made reservations ahead of time by about 2 months. Never in that time was it told to us that they were doing construction there. To add insult to injury, they gave us a room that had no window since the outside was draped in plastic. So, be aware of that before you book and ask for a specific room in... More

We spent one night in this hotel and were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and amenities. The room was very clean and large with room for a dining table with four chairs, very large closet, couch, desk, coffee table and two beds, with small fridge, microwave and sink. We wished we had need to spend more time there! The breakfast... More

Nice place to visit. Comfortable room, up a quiet hill in an industrial park near a lot of shopping malls. Clean, well-maintained. If I had to go to South Portland again, I guess I'd stay there. Nondescript, so don't have much more to say.
