We usually stay at a Choice Brand motel if we can, and since we were just returning to our home state of Maine we chose this Econolodge.

Stayed here for a weekend visit. I would not return to this hotel. You get what you pay for, the room is fine, but it's very noisy! We've stayed in other econo lodge in Freeport a few weeks ago and had no problems. The room is fine, it's clean enough but it's particularly noisy! Especially for Maine we come here... More

Excellent No Problems. Staff was very helpful and pleasant specially sammi. We felt at ease during our stay. This Hotel is the best if you are leaving from Portland airport. They have free shuttle service. Close to maine mall. WE would definitely come back.

In particular, a gentleman named Sami was very helpful at night with some questions I had . I have stayed here several times, and each time, he has... More

Hi all , we can't give a great review for this place because of a few things. Firstly the tv was faulty (ok they replaced it) , wifi was terrible ....we had to sit in the foyer of the hotel to use wifi. The air con was noisy...... but the room was good & quiet....parking was good too

This was an average hotel. There were all the usual amenities you'd expect and the room was clean although a little run down. There was an iron, a microwave, fridge, clock (which wasn't set and a personal pet peeve of mine). The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. Breakfast was decent. Danishes, bagels, cereals, toast, tea coffee, juice. There... More

Contacted corporate and they said it was the responsibility of the owner of the property. Contacted the owner, got a standard email back thanking us for bringing it to their attention I sent them...
