The location is okay and convenient enough to downtown Portland. The staff is relatively friendly. These are the only positives of this hotel. We've been staying here for the past few days for vacation. The rooms are gross. Bedspreads are stained, there are gross (feces?) stains on the back of the curtains. The hotel is pet friendly and the room... More

The first room we had was on the 4th floor. This room was excellent. Very nice bathroom, one king sized bed, clean and quite. The price was quite high for that room. We later moved to the first floor to be closer to an exit. That room smelled like dirty feet. The toilet in the bathroom weeped so badly that... More

So it was a last minute decision to drive down to Portland and it being the busy summer, we had few choices for hotels. I got the Clarion on booking.com and paid around $210 CDN a night. We didn't know what to expect but were greatly surprised. I called ahead to tell them it would be a late check in... More

This hotel was just alright. Nothing special. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful, especially with his recommendations for dinner. I question the security and safety. The side entrance did not seem secure.

We were flying out of Portland at 5:45AM the next day, so this seemed to be a logical place to stay. We dropped our bags off at about 10:00 AM, and they locked them in the office for us. After touring Portland that day we returned to the hotel am Ned checked in at about 3:30 PM. The rooms are... More

We stayed at this hotel for a 3 day weekend. I was not expecting much because the hotel rate was the cheapest we got for Maine's peak summer season. Located between the PWM airport and the city center of Portland. It is close enough for a short $8 cab ride to Old Port. The hotel clearly needs updating especially the... More

We've stayed here quite a few times, and I've done a review before. The Clarion continues to be a good place for us to stay when visiting family in Portland. The rooms are clean, though some are starting to look a bit worn. We love the beds and bed linens. We had planned to stay only one night, but our... More

We stayed for one night and enjoyed our stay. The reception staff were nice and efficient. The room was fine and had both a fridge and a micro. The WIFI functioned well and there was both coffee and tea available. The bathroom was clean and the beds comfortable. The gym was perfectly OK and the pool area seemed fine (didn't... More
