Looking for a cheap room after a long day of travel I landed here. It was fine that the room was a bit dated, the bed cover thread bare, to cover the bare-bones mattress....BUT the overkill on whatever the room had been sprayed with to cover up what it really smelled like was a little much. The windows did not... More

Arrived for our stay this evening to find the hotel will be closing starting the 15th for renovation! I sure hope that you plan on reopening, always stay here when in Portland. Kevon was very helpful; your staff is always a delight to work with. Best of luck with your project and my family and I look forward to your... More

I booked a room through trip adviser before we got there and when I arrived I was told they could not find my reservation even though I had a copy of the reservation they would not let us stay unless I paid again so I canceled the charge on my credit card and went to a much nicer place for...

Needing a room to stay in Portland after a long international flight and late arrival, we booked this hotel through Expedia. Portland hotel prices for a mid-October stay were very high, and we chose this hotel based on the very reasonable rate. Trip Advisor reviews were mixed, to say the least, but we only needed a bed to sleep in... More

I use this motel for a one night stand before catching a 6 a.m. flight from the nearby airport. I left a wake up call, which I got, and was told the shuttle would leave at 5 a.m. sharp. I went to the front desk and no one was there. At 5:17 a.m. the shuttle showed. The driver had an... More

I really wanted to stay in the city center area but every place I checked was either double or triple the price of this budget hotel. I wanted to save money and booked this place for $93 per night, not the best bargain but I was happy to save the extra money. The drive back and forth into the city... More

Stayed 2 nights. One at the beginning of our trip to Acadia and one at the end to be close to the airport (which it is). However, the 1st night, we had asked for a rollaway bed which didn't fit without tearing the room apart and the 2nd night, the toilet ran and ran so they changed rooms but every... More

Stayed at this location as it was close to airport and offered a shuttle. The lobby area was very tacky and felt very unclean. The room was worse. I had to wash areas with the soap and hand cloths before touching anything. The door had obviously been busted open numerous times, curtains had huge stains and was dangling. Floor had... More

The photos of the property must have been from when it was first built or they have been heavily photoshopped. Upon arrival, the exterior looked like an abandoned property and, obviously, appeared in need of work. I almost didn't drive into the lot because it looked abandoned, until I saw someone come out of the Libby. Since it was only... More

We have stayed here many times in the past; overall it has been a good experience, reasonable priced for what you get and was a good stand by alternative to expensive places. Thats the key..priced for what you get. This stay was a much higher rate than we ever paid, $110+tax for standard room. For what you really get, it... More
