We were advised by my husband surgeon Maine Medical and his staff to book at your establishment because you cater to me medical patients and their families you make me medical families a top priority well we found out that to be totally faults when we were told there was no room for us on the shuttle to be taken up to Maine Medical. The breakfast it's not the best the room was average. If anyone has a patient at Maine Medical I would start please advise them to book at another hotel even if you were advised to stay at this establishment by doctors and hospitals

Thank you for staying with us on your recent trip to Portland. I am truly sorry that there was an issue with you receiving our complimentary shuttle service to the hospital. We have thousands of patients and family members stay with us each year and we have never had an issue with transporting them. I have brought your comments to the attention of our shuttle manager so that he can follow-up wit his staff.

This weekend my mother and I were staying in Portland to visit family. We booked a room at the Clarion because It had good reviews and I very adequate price. Upon entering our room we found a very large liquid stain on the floor. We decided to let that go and just get settled into our beds. I lifted the sheets to find yellow stains all over the bed. When I called the front desk they offered to bring me new sheets. When the new sheets arrived it ended up just being a blanket and a thin bed sheet. When I asked the front desk for a new comforter and for someone to come changed the whole bed they responded with annoyance that they could not do that because there was no housekeeping available. They then gave us a new room which was appreciated but very inconvenient to change rooms at 9pm when you are already in your pajamas. To sum things up this hotel room was soiled all over from some person or animal. I advice everyone that stays here to check their sheets fully before going to bed.

We rode the downeaster train from Woburn, MA to Portland, Maine. We were able to walk to the Clarion from the train station. The king bed rooms were very nice and clean. We used the pool and the bar, both were great. I The dinner at the hotel were small portions but acceptable. The breakfast was great. The price was reasonable, breakfast not included!! Would recommend a stay here.

Very basic hotel but close to downtown and the best price you will find. Has a pool and breakfast is good. I have stayed here a lot and it's consistently good. The hotel is a bit old and it smells a bit musty depending on what floor you stay in. Perhaps it is a former smoking floor?

I was hopeful because I had read some positive reviews (but seems like they must take down negative posts, lets see how long this one last). As soon as we got off the elevator it smelled like cig's and dirty carpet. The smell was overpowering. When we got into our room the smell was even stronger. The windows do not open so were stuck. There was hair all over the bread spread.. and long hairs in the bathtub. I literally wanted to die :( We had not where else to stay on short notice. DON'T book this place.. unless you don't care about cleanliness..and apparently a lot of people don't because the hotel was packed with people! SMH

I truly apologize that you encountered some Housekeeping issues during your recent stay. This is certainly not what I expect for an experience for my guests. TripAdvisor does not allow for negative reviews to be removed. I would not do it even if they did. Our carpets are cleaned by a professional company on a regular basis. In fact they were cleaned just 1 week prior to your stay. I have shared your comments regarding the cleanliness issues in your room with our HK supervisor for follow-up. I do hope that you will give us another chance on your next visit to Portland.
