Spent 3 nights and 4 days at this hotel for business, and the stay was fairly average for a mid - Maine Hotel. The service was good when I checked in, and I didn't have any issues with the room, or anyone at the hotel, but I will probably stay at the Hampton Inn across town next time. Nothing special about this hotel, but I am used to the extras at the Hilton chains, for the same costs. The larger flat screen TV and the bigger mini fridge was a nice touch, and the free WiFi worked well when I used it.
Simple issues that I encountered - the hangers are too big to close the closet doors when you hang up your clothes, and the iron holder was partially detached from the wall so the iron had to be placed on the closet floor - Nothing to make me change rooms, and I did tell them at the front desk about the iron holder, but it was something you would never see at a hotel chain that had a cleaning/maintenance crew that noticed the little things on room inspections.
Location is decent, good restaurants within walking distance, but I wouldn't recommend the restaurant at this hotel. O'Briens is a good place to grab a beer at the end of the day, but not much menu choices, and zero to attract a person wanting to cut calories and eat lite. Governors across the street was my choice and it was excellent - with breakfast at anytime.
