We purchased an express deal through Priceline and while we weren't trilled, the pictures on line looked ok. I must say those pictures are at least 10 years old. This hotel is run down and unkept. There isn't a sign to indicate where to check in. That could be because it is like walking into a basement. It is dark... More

Coming back from a trip to Boston, we wanted to have a day at the beach. Since we didn't have a reservation, after 20 «No Vacancy» signs, we looked a bit further from Route 1 and we found this motel that had room for us. It's true that the place is dated, but our room was very clean, especially the... More

We stayed here because it was a Priceline bid, then read all the reviews and my traveling companions and I were a little nervous about staying. Since we had a late flight and weren't going to get to hotel until after midnight, it was okay. The free shuttle service was quick to arrive (within 15 mins), the staff was friendly,... More

The exterior of the hotel when I found it online looked amazing. However, when I checked in and went in, it was very old and rundown. Even though the Maine Mall was easy to find, the hotel itself was in a very difficult place to find. It was so difficult that even the person who answered the phone couldn't explain... More

Got it via an Express Deal on Priceline. Tried to cancel after I read he Trip Advisor reviews. Was denied. Checked in. Room reeked of smoke. Lifted up the mattress and was greeted by a six legged friend. Took pictures and got right out of the room and then Priceline miraculously was able to cancel. Went to Homewood Suites (... More

When I 'named-my-own-price' and got this hotel, and then came on here and read the reviews, I thought I might cry. I even called and tried to get it changed, and was denied. Then called the Econolodge to see what they had to say. The clerk did a great job alleviating my concerns. Check-in was a breeze. The staff were... More

We should have known better, but we had to fly out of PWM at 7AM so got a room for the night utilizing the "free" shuttle to the airport. The van had Howard Johnson's written on it, so we don't know who bought who, but: the yard was unkempt; you couldn't see the sign; the motel was located in the... More

My family and I checked into the hotel late on a Saturday evening the desk clerk at check in was very friendly. When we entered the room the stench of smoke was overwhelming but we turned on the fan and it helped with that issue. We unpacked our stuff before kicking off our shoes to relax. The pillows had yellow... More
