We were traveling as a family with our dog. The hotel was doing some renovations, but it was a pleasant stay. It was clean, comfortable beds and quiet. The staff was friendly. I would stay there again, if we were traveling in the area.

We stayed overnight to avoid bad-weather traveling. Booked with a AAA rate, this is a good choice and we will stay here again if we're in the area! Our king suite was larger than our friends' comparable room at the Marriott Sable Oaks nearby and we enjoyed having a fridge &

Dear CB48, Thank you for the great feedback on the front desk staff and I will be sure to relay it to the entire team. Our hotel is right around the corner form the Maine Mall, the Portland International Jetport, as well as many restaurants. Downtown Portland is just about a 10-15 minute drive from our property. Our rates do drop during the winter and it is definitely still a great time to visit! We hope to see you again.

Don’t know where the people stayed that wrote the horrible reviews. First, it is in a great location with tons of restaurants and shopping near by. The grounds are very nice and sits on a hill away from traffic with nice scenery. The building is like new and well maintained.
