“Very nice property and no chemical smells”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

I recommend this to all. Top notch across the board. I am also pleased that I didn't smell any chemical air fresheners nor did I see any of those auto air fresheners hanging in the hallways or lobby. I have a chemical sensitivity as does 30% of the population and its very important that the air around me is not laden with chemical scents.

A last minute decision to stop at this hotel, and it was a very good choice. Nice suite, comfortable beds and a very good selection for the inclusive breakfast. Paid a lot more money at many hotels for a lot less.

Made reservations ahead of time by about 2 months. Never in that time was it told to us that they were doing construction there. To add insult to injury, they gave us a room that had no window since the outside was draped in plastic. So, be aware of that before you book and ask for a specific room in the front (unless they decide to do that as well). Also, be aware that while the hotel is located in a nice forested setting, it is essentially right nest to the highway, so there is road noise early morning. The good? They have a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Rooms are very big and the beds were comfy. There is a refrig. and microwave in room as well as a coffee maker. Parking seems adequate and as stated before, the setting is very nice.

Room Tip: choose one in the front away from the highway noise

We spent one night in this hotel and were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and amenities. The room was very clean and large with room for a dining table with four chairs, very large closet, couch, desk, coffee table and two beds, with small fridge, microwave and sink. We wished we had need to spend more time there! The breakfast was excellent with many hot and cold choices. Fruit, and beverages were still available outside of the breakfast hours. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool looked nice but we did not have time to take advantage of it. It was a very quiet, restful night in a comfortable bed.

Nice place to visit. Comfortable room, up a quiet hill in an industrial park near a lot of shopping malls. Clean, well-maintained. If I had to go to South Portland again, I guess I'd stay there. Nondescript, so don't have much more to say.

Clean, decent, standard. I've stayed at a lot of HIE's and this one is no different. I consider the consistency a pro. The room was clean and comfortable. The little indoor pool and fitness room are nice to have. The location has good access to the highway and to downtown Portland, and it seems that every chain restaurant/store you can think of is within a 1/2 mile on the main road. Good spot to stay for visiting the area.

This hotel is convenient to many restaurants and a short drive to the airport. It was perfect for one night before my flight went out the next morning. The room was large, clean and comfortable. It had a small kitchenette, a living area with a couch and a bedroom and bathroom. The only issue was the parking, it was very full and they almost ran out of spaces. Due to the construction, you had a longish walk to get into the hotel as there was no back entrance.
