I stayed here on the last night of a two week trip as it is convenient to the airport (and Maine Mall if you have some shopping to do). The staff was friendly, offered a snack but no water on check in as a part of the Priority Club program. I was first assigned a room on the 6th floor which smelled strongly of smoke; I had to ask to be moved and the next room had no smoke smell but the either the cleaning compounds or Febreeze had a strong odor as well. This seems to be a common issue with some of the older hotels and creates a fair amount of discomfort for me. The furniture was basic, comfortable enough but could use updating as could the carpeting. The breakfast was lacking fresh fruit, the choices were some kind of pre-formed scrambled eggs, sausage patties, cinnamon roles, cereals, basic HIE fare though some HIE's I've stayed at seemed to have a little more flair.
There is some freeway noise so ask for a room away from the road, there are woods on one side of the hotel.
My overall rating would be slightly below average for an HIE after having stayed at several other, newer ones this past summer.
