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

Staff was friendly. Room and shower was clean. Did not have breakfast there. Not bad for the price. Not price like in Portland. Was about 5 miles into Portland. They only thing I had to go back to office to have door key fixed.

Worst motel ever! We are retired and have traveled throughout the world. Never, anywhere did we get the bites that we got here. No one cares. 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...

We dont use during the summer as the rates are thru the roof and filled with vacationers. However, fall, winter we go to this area frequently and always stay here. Customer service is pretty good at check in, they are not falling over themselves to be overly nice or bubbly but whatever, they greet you and are efficient. Cont breakfast... More

The first stay was the night of a minor earthquake. No fault of the motel! A less than clean room with a door that would not lock. The recent stay had a locking door and the housekeeping seemed to have improved. Convienence to the Jetport and price was the only reason to stay here

We purchased an express deal through Priceline and while we weren't trilled, the pictures on line looked ok. I must say those pictures are at least 10 years old. This hotel is run down and unkept. There isn't a sign to indicate where to check in. That could be because it is like walking into a basement. It is dark... More

Coming back from a trip to Boston, we wanted to have a day at the beach. Since we didn't have a reservation, after 20 «No Vacancy» signs, we looked a bit further from Route 1 and we found this motel that had room for us. It's true that the place is dated, but our room was very clean, especially the... More

We stayed here because it was a Priceline bid, then read all the reviews and my traveling companions and I were a little nervous about staying. Since we had a late flight and weren't going to get to hotel until after midnight, it was okay. The free shuttle service was quick to arrive (within 15 mins), the staff was friendly,... More
