This hotel has it all. It was my 1st time at a Residence Inn and it won't be my last. It is a modern, possibly new hotel so everything is fresh & clean. The staff were all very outgoing, friendly and attentive. The accommodations & amenities all far outweighed my expectations. Most all rooms are suites so have a separate... More

I am a fan of Residence Inns, preferring to have the comfort of an apartment style hotel over rooms, particularly when traveling with others. This time we were 2 couples and a small dog, so our accommodations were limited to the 2nd floor. We had a large 2 bedroom unit, which fit our needs perfectly. King-size bedrooms on either side,...

A Residence Inn is usually dependable but not exciting, and this one was the same. The staff is helpful, the place is immaculate, but the services offered are unimpressive. We had a cup of their Starbucks coffee in their little coffee place that was dishwater. We dared not try anything else. The location is just on the edge of all... More

We have been to many residence inns and this was nicer than most. The room was huge. It was just my husband and me but if we had our three kids with us they could have slept on the pullout comfortably. Room was nice. There is a well paved running route near the hotel (goes by the stinky sewage plant).... More

The complementary shuttle service was very helpful and took us to a restaurant, museum and even an event at another hotel. It was a pleasure to just leave our car sitting in the parking garage next door. BTW, the $50 a day parking garage was $12 with validation from the hotel. A pretty good breakfast is included in the room... More

Great hotel all around. Can't say enough about this. Did not feel like a residence inn, very upscale. Valet parking, beautiful lobby and the rooms were immaculate. Staff was very accommodating, pleasant and the concierge gave us some great recommendation for INCREDIBLE seafood which was in walking distance. As great as the hotel is, the greatest feature is the location... More

As I told the manager, we noticed that late at night as we were playing cards in the lobby, random people (2 or 3) that looked homeless and under the influence, were coming in and out serving themselves coffee and water. Then, in the morning during the free breakfast, they were coming in and out (different random people) getting breakfast.... More

Located in a downtown location, the hotel at times does get challenged with having to deal with the removal of non-guest from the property. It is our mission to provide a safe and secure experience for you and your family. The hotel has a number of security measures in place including guest key controlled exterior entrances between the hours of... More

Stayed here one night, but would have loved to stay longer. As always, Residence Inn's never disappoints. Large rooms, full size kitchen facilities, everything you come to expect. Free breakfast. Modern lobby and great location. Definitely recommend!

Standard Residence Inn amenities, but this one is worth reviewing for its location. We only used the car once during our stay (to drive to Fort Williams park in Cape Elizabeth). Everything is accessible by walking. The staff was super nice and the room was perfectly appointed.
