The first room i checked into had a broken lamp and i could hear every word of the family next door. So, they graciously moved me to another room that really was no better. The layout of the both rooms was horrible. The bathroom was practically in the bed with me. The TV was weirdly floating on a piece of...

Dear marisapNYC, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We work diligently to ensure our facilities are well maintained and we try our hardest to provide not just good value, but comfortable, clean and superior accommodations. It seems that we were not able to execute an exemplary hotel stay experience with regard to the noise and conditions...

We were here for 1 night. Service was good, rooms were clean. Beds were comfy. Had a good night sleep. I was actually surprised at the size of the suite with 2 double beds. A lot larger than expected. A few small issues. No info book in the room. Not a huge deal, but it's nice to look at what...

We found this hotel well maintained and located. Staff was friendly and helpful and early morning shuttle to the airport was on time and courteous. Park and fly option was a great deal and we will return over and over again as we often travel from Portland, ME to places around the country.

Stayed here for a long weekend. Suite was a great size, very clean. Price was great, and parking was free, which was not the case for most of the hotels in downtown Portland. Very close to airport but we did not have any issues w/ noise at all. This hotel was in a great location- easy on/ off I -95...

When I travel I always stay at this Holiday Inn location. The location is convenient to Target and the mall for any last minute vacation shopping. The shuttle to the airport is punctual and the drivers are great. Their park & fly rates is one of the best in the area and it is a quality hotel with nice people...

We have stayed here many times and again 2 weeks ago. We get great service, a nice breakfast and we love the suite we always get. They allow us to leave our car there and shuttle us to and from the airport as part of their Park and Stay package. We had a cancelled flight and had to take a...

The room was booked thru a 3rd party one month in advance of our stay - my confirmation came back stating that I would be staying in a handicap room of which, we did not need, but this is typical of this kind of booking when you don't book directly with the hotel's website. Upon our arrival, I did state...

I am a Holiday Inn brand loyalist. This is my brand of choice when I travel, though I do stay at other brands when I have to. I was both pleased and discouraged with my stay in South Portland, Maine. This particular hotel used to be a Marriott hotel because they still have the posters hanging in the hallway down...

I stay here almost every time I visit my hometown in Maine. The motel has a huge lobby and a good free breakfast. Remember that when they say your internet reservation is non refundable they mean it.

This is my second stay at this hotel and it's always great. The rooms are big, we had 2 doubles and a pull out couch. Fridge, coffee maker and microwave and convenient.
