Found the Fireside Inn and Suites through an Internet search and opted to stay there for our 5 night getaway based on central location in Portland, ME along the Turnpike. It met all criteria of free parking, fitness center, and continental breakfast included with rate. Sean at the front desk was super hospitable and gave us a fantastic overview on... More

The staff is very helpful and friendly. The meals provided to our group were very good. The Shuttle service was very efficient. We left a phone in the room and the hotel was very prompt at mailing it to us.

We had over 200 attend a week long Navy Reunion. We had breakfast buffet every morning. Big banquet on Saturday night. Food and serve was excellent. Rooms super clean and modern. The hotel over all was excellent. Close to all interesting points of interest. Highly recommend.

This property is a bit off-putting when you drive up to it. You might never guess that it's much better on the inside than from the outside, especially when you see it from the road. Our room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The staff was very pleasant. Given what other hotels cost now in Portland, ME, the Fireside Inn... More

We have been to this hotel quite a few times and always receive a clean, updated, well appointed room. We always ask for a king bed pool view and that's exactly what we get. Love having the outside pool that you are able to meet with friends and have a drink without being forced to purchase expensive drinks from their... More

The place was nice and the staff was very friendly. The only downside is that the "cleaning lady" never made it to our room, so we did not get fresh towels or our bed made that day. Other then that the place is very centric, the breakfast is discent and the staff was nice with us.

Overall we loved this place. The commonly used things were very clean but the room as a whole needed a floor to ceiling wash down and paint job. Did it effect the quality of our stay? No. I'd stay again! Check in was smooth and she allowed us in a bit early which was nice. Our clerk was efficient but... More

At check in, I waited about 5 minutes for one of the 2 staff members to assist me when there was only one other customer at the desk. We were welcomed into our room by an off-putting smell. In the bathroom, there was still a small amount of dry urine on the underside of the toilet seat. My son found... More

Fireside Inn and suites in Portland, Maine is a two-star. The location is close to PWM airport if you take the turnpike toll road. Most of the cabs from the airport will take you to the back roads (which will take you longer and takes more time) and charge you more.. They have two pools which you can enjoy. A... More

I booked two nights at the Fireside Inn because I was attending a conference there and the conference rate of $99 was more than reasonable. After reading prior reviews I wasn’t expecting much but the first room I was given sent me running back to the front desk to ask for another. It had two beds, was dirty and badly... More
