We had a wonderful king bed room with microwave and mini-fridge. The room was beautifully prepared by Grant, our housekeeper. The bathroom has a light with a fan. We always prefer separate, but this was modest price. The breakfast is nicely done, but includes only cereal, breads and sweets. Coffee and orange juice are readily available. It is locate right...

Nice place, very clean. Staff was great. The outside needs to be spruced up but the price is great. The breakfast is just for a quick bite, nothing more than bagels and English muffins and cereal. All and all a nice place to stay.

The only 2 positives about this place was the location (lots of shopping and sightseeing) and helpful staff. This place needs some serious maintenance and cleaning. The bathroom door was jammed, and the room look run down. Linens were very worn. We did not bother to take a look at breakfast.

I recognize that we selected an economy hotel, but even by those standards, this one was a disappointment. We had a travel discount so we did not have to pay full freight, but even at a discounted rate it was a disappointment. The staff was pleasant. That was one of the only positives. The other positive was location. There was... More

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.

I booked this motel for one night stay. It was a very quiet motel. Very easy check in. They motel was pretty full but, you would not know it. Never heard a sound from any other room. 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
