Free Parking for guests
Stunning views from the East-facing rooms
Facilities, rooms, furnishings, equipment look dated and kind of tired, specially in meeting/activity areas.
Price point relative to the amenities and facilities.
Yes, I am aware that Portland/Maine Coast in the summer high season can mean high prices due to high upper-end demand. But in the case of the HIBtB there is the additional factor that apparently there is no other business-conference venue of this scale in town and they just "have" you. In any case the quality of the installations was below what I expected at the price from other meeting locations. In particular, Casco Bay Hall (exhibit/luncheon room) looks old and cheap. The location itself is excellent and the view from the East(rear)-facing rooms is impressive from a higher room. The free parking and wifi ARE especially welcome, too many business hotels tend to hit you on that (although the wifi kept cutting off or timing out, may be time to upgrade the network).
