Firstly, I found a tissue under the sheets when I was going to bed. Not impressed! Enjoyed the front desk ladies. Mark was tired, grumpy or just not interested. My rate was reduced once I spoke to another front desk agent. She was very distraught with the tissue and having come in after 12 midnight and not having a friendly welcome!

It's been several years since we've stayed here. It's a little tricky to get to and it's right next to the freeway, but it's very nice other than the location. We asked for a quiet room and were given a room on the 3rd floor on the front of the building. It was very quiet. The rooms had recently been redecorated and everything was new and lovely. Our room was quite small but the space was well organized. There wasn't even a closet - just a rack attached to the wall. The bathroom was the smallest I can ever remember having at a Fairfield Inn. The basin was tucked into the corner by the doorway. It was a 1 person facility for sure, but it was clean and the shower was great, and there was another mirror in the entry, which I used to get myself "together", so it all worked out. When we registered there were hot chocolate chip cookies and pizza available. We had the cookies, but passed on the pizza because we were going out to dinner. When we left the following morning there was a sign on the counter inviting everyone to a manager's reception later that afternoon where some kind of pasta was going to be served. The breakfast area had been remodeled and enlarged since we were there last. It was a large pleasant space. The breakfast was good, and we could see from where we were sitting that they had a full kitchen adjoining the eating area. This place caters to business people and appeared to be full or nearly so when we were there in mid-April. We paid $74.00 plus tax for a king senior, but it was "off season" and we may have used a coupon - I can't remember for sure. It's a good choice for an "overnighter".

Room Tip: To get away from the road noise ask for the front of the building

We stayed overnight in Scarborough, ME on our way up the coast. The hotel was comfortable and clean with a very good price on the room. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful on directions. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good economically priced room with breakfast included.

We arrived after a long day's drive and had a bit of a challenge finding the location with our GPS, but eventually found it. Probably would have been easier, had it been during the daylight, as we were very close to the mall. It's a very clean, conveniently located to Cracker Barrel, Famous Dave's and Cabelas. A nice hot breakfast is available.

Went to Sebago-right down the street-Showed Marriott room key & received 10% off my entire meal and drinks!
Beds were comfortable.
They were serving a pasta dish at dinner time-not very tasty but liked the effort!

After a long day on the road it was very nice to have Aleisha check us into our room. She was very friendly, accommodating and professional. A special treat was the fresh pies for guests that night. We were given a very quiet, clean room. Enjoy staying with the Marriott family.

Room Tip: The hotel is very close to the Maine Mall but far enough to be away from the congestion.

My husband and I stayed at this Fairfield Inn over the winter since it is so close to Portland. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was for the value. Beds were very comfy, everything was very clean, and our room overlooked a large empty parking lot out back. We arrived right before a snowstorm and were concerned that we'd be blocked in but we watched as a plow truck came around repeatedly and cleared everything at various times during the night. We had no problem leaving the hotel the next day. The breakfast is also quite good with a few hot options. Definitely worth staying here instead of in the city on a trip to Portland.
