My husband and I spent two nights here before flying out of the Portland airport. Our King room was spacious, with a sitting area and a very comfortable bed. It was CLEAN and pretty quiet on the 2nd floor. Breakfast was pretty standard, with hot and cold choices, but I appreciated the availability of my favorite skim milk. There are... More

I am used to hotels asking for a charge card for the purchase of "incidentals". How about a property that takes the number and then charges $25.00 to the card UPON CHECKOUT for "incidentals" when none were purchased and there are none listed on the final bill. (charge date on the statement was same date we checked out). Then, the... More

The Sable Oaks Drive leads into an industrial area, but really it's a charming tree-lined lane off the busy boulevard featuring the Holiday Inn and the Marriott. We stayed at the Marriott last year and the Holiday Inn Express this year. It's cheaper at the Holiday Inn, but you get a 10 percent discount at the Marriott restaurant next door!... More

I love Holiday Inn Express because it is clean, easy internet, good plugs, good AC and nearly always reliable--but what i love most is that i can count on being able to open the window and have fresh air... i hate feeling cooped up in a hotel with no fresh air--it feels like being in a fish tank or some...

This was our second stay here - our preferred choice when we have an early flight. The beds were very comfortable, with plenty of big, fluffy pillows. Everything was very clean, and while we don't really need the studio, the extra space makes it easy to set things out for a quick getaway in the morning. The toilet/shower area is... More

Checked in late night. Clerk was very good. Used a discount coupon and he accepted with no questions. Breakfast was better than most. Room was very nice. TV was a little awkward but large enough to see from sitting room and bedroom. Not very convenient.

The Holiday Inn Express it what you would expect from the brand. This one being near an airport is a little bit more worn but it is adequate. The typical breakfast items including their cinnamon rolls. You are basically paying for convenience but just to point out Portland is a small city so being near the airport is not such... More

Whenever I travel to Portland, Maine I stay here. The location is convenient, the room is spacious and clean and the continental breakfast has a pleasing selection. If only we could find someone to deliver pizza there!!!

Very nice, clean establishment with nice amenities including ice coffee! Getting in was quick and easy and the location is extremely convenient to shopping and the airport. Clean rooms and nice grounds as well. Great value for the money and amenities.

We love this hotel for when family visit us in the Portland area and have also rented the small banquet room for kids bday parties. It's clean, modern, super close to the mall and airport without being near the noise, the kids love the pool and the hot breakfast is awesome. Friendly staff also a plus!
