4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful with "must see" suggestions. I paid for a bay view room and it was quite serene. The area is Casco Bay and it is quite beautiful. No complaints about the staff or accommodations. Would recommend.

Hotel had a good location. They charge $10 for parking. Room was clean enough. We thought we paid a bit too much for what it was. Would probably look elsewhere next time in Portland. No real complaints to speak of. Breakfast not included in the price.

We checked into the hotel and right when we walked in it, it was big. We checked into friendly staff and we warmed up with free hot coco. We were given a nice room with a great view of the River. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was really clean. The next morning, we ate... More

We stayed here recently for a concert in Portland (on the pier). We are from the area and did not want to have to drive home after. Although not a "4" star hotel, for the price point (given it is summer) it is. The room was adequately sized, the beds comfortable (though they were double beds not queen in the... More

The staff was very friendly, nice and helpful. They take the time to talk with you upon check-in to get to know your needs and help to make them happen. This also hotel tries to accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs. When we arrived we found out that our room assigned to us had a city view and so we... More

Spent 5 nights at this hotel in August 2016. The staff was very curteous and helpful. We were within walking distance to the Old Port section of town where we spent most of our time. However there are a few things I'd like to mention. This hotel needs a thorough "TEAR THE PLACE APART ' cleaning. There was mold in... More

Hotel is within walking distance to old downtown & great restaurants but if you can't walk, hotel shuttle will take you there! The Portland Art Museum is across the street. Very professional & friendly staff and our king size bedroom had a lovely view from the bay. Room was spacious the Keurig's coffee maker is a plus.
