Our recent stay (necessitated by essential travel during COVID-19 pandemic) and all the details associated with it were handled exceptionally well by HIBTB's staff - from front of the house through valet and housekeeping. Big thanks to Shawna, Kisun and Bevin for making us feel like our priorities were their most important task - along with ensuring safe, sanitized space! Our immaculate room was large, updated and had a cool view of the harbor. The location is walkable to Old Port and the parking is affordable and secure. I can't thank you all enough for your courtesy, professionalism and customer-focused service. Stay safe!!

We enjoy staying here, and it was in need of renovations, so be prepared for noise if you are a late sleeper or want to take a nap after a great meal. Hotel restaurant serves GREAT food, snacks, and adult beverages.

This is a basic hotel with a great location. The free shuttle is great. The parking is just $10.00 cheapest hotel parking in the city. The front desk staff is outstanding. Joel went out of his way to help and inform us. Will stay again when in Portland

Brought my family to see Kane Brown and wanted close walking distance access to the Arena. On site parking for small fee ($10.. no biggie) nice restaurant on site, fair pricing (comparable to most hotel pricing at restaurants on site) beautiful clean pool, fitness area with “enough” offered to get a workout in. Room was nice and clean with small refrigerator and microwave, comfortable beds and cozy linens. All staff were excellent and very helpful/accommodating. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed for one night in early February & I was appalled by the lack of cleanliness in the bathroom. Black mold, tattered shower curtain, dirty ceiling, loose tiles. Would not stay again & beware to anyone looking at this hotel. Also, arranged for late check out when I checked in at the front desk & then got knocks on the door from housekeeping & calls from front desk in the AM. Front desk worker never wrote it down.
