On our way to Maine, we stayed at this newer property due to fierce winter storm. The first impression was very good, with one (major) exception. The hotel was very clean, modern and attractive and the staff were immediately welcoming. Unfortunately, there was no parking in site so I had to park three blocks away in a municipal garage and walk through the snowstorm with my luggage! The front desk explained the parking lot across the street was being bulldozed for another new hotel.
The room was spacious and fresh with a separate living room, kitchenette and a roomy bathroom. However, the pull out bed was uncomfortable and there was not adequate bedding in the closet for the pull out.
The breakfast buffet in the morning was plentiful enough and decent, with some hot choices such as pancakes, sausage and home fries. The coffee, however, was bitter and disappointing
Overall, this is a cut above the standard Residence Inn. If they could fix the parking situation, it would be even better.
