Booked the park and fly deal at the Clarion. Room was clean and updated. Close to many restaurants. Very comfortable beds. Best of all was the customer service. We parked our car there and two storms came while we were gone. When we got back, they picked us up at the airport

How far is your hotel from the city centre?
Hi, I don't remember exactly but it wasn't that far of a drive. It was close enough.

Sorry I don't know but I can tell you that it's a very short ride to the airport - 10 minutes tops (although I did not do it in rush hour).

I would not stay at this hotel ever again. It's the worst experience. We stayed 7 hotels in our 3 week vacation and the worst was this hotel. Run down, noisy, room is dirty looking. Filthy.

I see that there is an airport shuttle to the jetport, but will the shuttle pick me up from the airport?
Yes. You will have to call. It might take 10 minutes to meet you; it might take them over 30.

I believe the hotel's shuttle can run you almost anywhere you want. It isn't far from Maine Med.

"we were on the 4th floor it was quiet and convenient."
"Try the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Convenient and friendly shuttle service available."
"There are rooms on the pool with doors to the pool. The rooms have a chlorine smell, how could they not. Good for families with kids."
"Ask for a room on ground or second floor so you can avoid the elevator."
