“OK... and that's all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2008

Room was clean and reasonably comfortable. This hotel has a lot of smoking rooms - you can smell it - and is full of truck driver types. It's not in the nicest area either. Police came twice while we were there to deal with some people across the hotel... I guess you can't blame the hotel for that though. Breakfast was below average. Just a bed with a TV and your own bathroom, that's clean. Don't expect anything more.

I read the bad reviews of this place and was afraid to stay here, but as it turns out it was fine. They had a very good continental breakfast with a good variety of choices and fresh fruit. Some of the staff members seemed unhappy and overworked, but the breakfast woman was very pleasant. The carpets were a bit worn and needed some sprucing up, but the bathrooms were clean and the rooms were fine. I would stay here again.

  • Liked — Breakfast, pool area
  • Disliked — carpeting

Very nice and available staff. Room was roomy enough, but the bed mattresses were kind of old/hard. Room, including bathroom, was clean. Very quiet during the night (no traffic noise). Most variety in a free hotel breakfast I've seen in a while - be sure to ask for the breakfast sandwich!! A bit expensive, though, given the level of luxury (no fridge, coffee maker, etc.).

  • Liked — breakfast

I have stayed at this Super 8 in years gone by and it was just fine but this time it wasn't clean at all. We were disgusted and cancelled another reservation that we had made for a week later.

If you looked you could see that the bathroom hadn't been vaccumed w/hairs on the floor. The sink and toilet looked like they had been swiped not cleaned. The bedspreads were nasty and the smell wasn't clean at all. We were exhausted so we took the blankets and bedspread off the bed and slept on the sheets. We left at about 2 am. The gent on the front desk was kind enough to get the coffee made for us but the cream tasted weird. Made a reservation for next week at Holiday Inn - it does cost more but the peace of mind is worth it.

I found this place to be very expensive for a plain old Super 8; could have lived with all that, except for the dirt. I suspected the bathrub may not be up to par by looking around the rest of the room. I cleaned it myself with a facecloth that turned BROWN when I cleaned it. disgusting!! Plus, there was no evidence that the space between the toilet and the wall behind had ever been cleaned, complete with two dead bugs there. If there would have been anything else available at the late hour of our arrival, believe me, I would have moved out very quickly.

Since we were just passing through, why not save money and stay here? One has to adjust to the Super 8 style of accommodation; no elevators, dark corridors and no glossy Comfort Suites/Hampton/Holiday Inn Express corporate balm. After researching some of the above choices which were a bit pricey, we settled for the Super 8.

The room was a good size and it was right on I-95. There were a couple of eating places within a 5 or 10 minute drive. The breakfast area could use some normal chairs and tables, more than one person there commeted on the high stools that we had to sit on.

In summary though, it is what it is, a roadside pit stop motel where we could rest our heads.

My husband & I stopped in Portland on our way to Nova Scotia. I had made reservations at Motel 6 trying to save some money. We were frightened to stay there once we saw the place! We decided to spend some extra cash to feel safe & went to the Howard Johnson's down the street. To our amazement we found that not only the Ho Jo's but every other decent hotel in Portland was booked for the night. We decided to give Super 8 a try since they had a room & from the outside didn't appear to be too bad---boy were we wrong!! We knew it was going to be a smoking room but the smell in the hall & room were stiffling. The walls were splattered with drip marks of some disgusting "things" that I do not care to know about! The floor hadn't been vacumed in months & I can't even describe the substance on the toilet seat!! We went straight to the local grocery store & bought an air freshner, lysol wipes & a BIG bottle of wine to make it easier to sleep & not think about what could be crawling about since they had mouse/rat traps right outside the entry door to the hotel!! This hotel was not acceptable at any price let alone over $100. They should be ashamed!!! If traveling to Portland make sure you do your homework, make a reservation at a decent place & spend the extra cash!!!!
