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.

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

The front desk staff is not helpful and not friendly at all. When you walk into the hotel, they don't even look up let alone say hello. They are not accommodating at all! The supervisor can't answer any questions and there is no way to contact a manager. They ran out of blankets and could not handle a full hotel.... More

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
