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

Unfortunately, my boyfriend and I had to make an unexpected stay in Portland due to some travel delays. After seeing this hotel, I instantly regretted the decision. First off, we paid $150-- which was an unplanned expense. The only bright side I saw to this was that it must be a decent hotel at that price. The guy at the... More

Room was spacious, clean and neat and equipped with a kitchenette console (microwave and refrigerator), 2 padded chairs, small round table and a safe. Wall around door trim was not refinished and had a shoddy appearance. Exterior of building was worn and in need of maintenance.

There was a weird guy keeping yelling to everyone downstairs of our first room, we talked with front desk, they let us change the rooms to other side of the lodge. The room was not too bad, but had a smell of smoke. 2 points for rooms, 1 point for the friendly staff.

The hotel was definitely not sketchy in the "someone will steal my stuff" way. The hotel room was clean (the mattresses looked new), but everything looked like maintenance stopped in 1989. The behind the front desk was missing moulding, the light over our sink had a short, one chair had a tear in it, and the other chair broke when... More

We were headed to the northern part of Maine on vacation and stopped in South Portlamd overnight. It was adequate for one night. The room was clean. The front office was Spartan and the continental breakfast was skimpy. It was value priced so we didn't have unrealistic expectations.

Our flight left somewhat early so we decided to stay near the Portland airport instead of downtown. only vacancy we could find near airport was this econo lodge. the rate was $160 so we assumed it was a somewhat upscale Econo Lodge. well you know what assume stands for. this motel had dirty, small room, thin sheets and towels. the...
