“Beautiful Downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Commercial Street is full of stores, restaurants, things to see and do. I really enjoyed walking this street. I felt safe, and this main avenue does not have a 'seedy' element that is often found in other waterfront cities. Enjoy!

“Shops, food, water”

Park your car and take a stroll! Lots of little shops, restaurants and a scenic stroll by the water on the way back to the car.

“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Many lobster shacks and restaurants with tons of people milling around. Our hotel was on Commercial and was a great starting point for all that downtown Portland has to offer.

My wife and I spent a couple nights in the Old Port. We love walking along Commercial street. Lots of cool old buildings, unique stores and restaurants.
