Recommendations on a Hotel


We are from Nova Scotia and planning a shopping/vacation for 3 days in Maine next week (July 10 to 13).

With preteen and teenage daughters, the highlights will be to shop in Maine at malls and factory outlets.

Where is best town to stay in that is central to the best shopping? any hotel recommendations? I have a coupon for Fairfield Inn but not sure if Fairfield is best choice/value.

Any insight is very much appreciated.

Fairfield Inn right at the Maine Mall is a good choice. Or you could stay in any number of hotels in Freeport, Maine where there are many outlets and LL Bean, but I think your daughters will like the Mall area of South Portland better. Then if you want more outlets take a 45 min trip down the coast to Kittery where there are many more outlets than Freeport.
