Affordable, nice staff, clean and comfy room. Parking and getting to the room was confusing and took awhile. Breakfast would have been good if there was enough seating or food. Good location and cookies during check in.

We love this place for our first night’s lodging whenever we spend our annual fall week in Maine and New Hampshire. Near the Portland airport, well priced and comfy, it’s a bargain. Friendly service with plenty of room and more than ample parking. I like to rate things on whether or not they meet my expectations at the asking price,... More

Hotel was dated and had a weird layout, but it was very clean. Staff was friendly & helpful and breakfast was better than average! The outdoor heated pool was nice, even in 55 degree weather! The Tempurpedic bed was nice to have & more comfortable than ours back home. Hotel location was easy to get to off the interstate and... More

The front desk was helpful at every turn. Checked in and needed to get to a Walmart and went online to get the address for our GPS.

Its a nice alternative to staying near Portland (about a 7 minute drive to Commercial St.) without the high prices. Our room was located on the exterior section of the hotel.

This hotel is very convenient to the highway, just off Rt 95 and 295. The room was clean and the enormous bed was very comfortable. My room, for about $100 p/night had a mini fridge (which could be useful) and came with continental breakfast that included eggs, waffles, toast, bacon, etc. There's also a restaurant on-site if you don't want...

Overall hotel is okay, breakfast is your standard food fare, nothing special, breakfast room is small and not laid out very well, but at least it is a complimentary breakfast.
