horrible night. The room was crowded, bed uncomfortable and the breakfast offered very little. The room smelt of smoke, the tv didn't work and I would never book at this hotel again. For almost $200.00 a night we expected more. Individuals were hanging out on the balcony area smoking pot.

Since early 2014, I have traveled to South Portland for work every week and have stayed at this Econo Lodge every time. The location is great, staff and management are friendly and go out of their way to make sure their guests are happy, and the rooms are clean and well kept. I will gladly continue to stay here every... More

This hotel is OK but could use some upgrading. It was clean and comfortable just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. Breakfast disappointing and I don't think it is really up to Econlodge standards.

The beds were very comfortable and rooms were very clean. Really enjoyed the stay here and would stay again. It is close to... More

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. It used to be nice when it was first built but has gone down-hill. 1. They charge a 100.00 deposit for even just a one night stay if paying with cash or debit... More

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

I had a very good stay at Econolodge, South Portland Maine. The room was clean and comfortable, and the amenities, TV and breakfast were great. The staff is very friendly and professional. 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
