Family Christmas

Would recommend Sat, Oct 24, 2015
There was a bad snow storm during the time we were coming up to visit family. Our cousin was going to pick us up that night, but we didn't want to risk him driving on too much ice in the dark. I booked this place one night in advance after finding about the storm. As usual the Holiday Inn was very nice and had a good size room with all the necessary amenities. Whenever I travel I choose this chain when possible, they are typically reasonably priced and this was no exception for myself along with my brother and his wife. The staff was exceptional, extremely polite and since nothing was really going on during that time of year I was able to have none business related conversation. They were very helpful in having us find food so late at night near the holiday. It was around 11 pm before Christmas and they helped us find a place that would deliver food!

Great trip without Vehicle Rental

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
We enjoyed our stay here, and especially enjoyed the transportation offered by the hotel shuttle. It was a nice walk to the heart of Portland, across the street from a great art museum, and a great place to stay without having to rent a car for our trip.

Quick Visit to Portland

Would recommend Tue, Sep 15, 2015
The hotel is fine but the woman who checked me in was kind of rude, which soured my impression from the very beginning. I asked about the parking fee and she became very snotty explaining it to me.

Great Location in Downtown Portland. Close to sites.

Would recommend Sat, Aug 22, 2015
Hotel had great view of Ocean. Staff alert and responsive. Not a fan of paying for parking if you are a patron of hotel, but understand that parking is a premium downtown.

Weekend Trip

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 18, 2015
I will not stay here again. Parking garage is too small for SUV's, front desk staff was not friendly, room was not ready past check in time, toilet and shower both had issues and were in need of repair.

Graduation Weekend

Would recommend Mon, Aug 17, 2015
This was a graduation weekend. We wanted to stay in the Old Port as we were planning on going out in the Old Pirt in the evening and didn't want to drive. The hotel is older than other Old Port hotels and a 10 to 12 minute walk. The price is considerably less than other hotels in that area. Overall, worth the price and the short walk if your looking for Old Pirt hotel.

Trip to see Garrison Keillor at the Merrill Auditorium

Would recommend Sat, Aug 8, 2015
The room was fantastic and an easy walk to the Merrill Auditorium. There was a bit of construction going on, but we funneled through it easily. Next time I hope to stay longer. My rewards points have not shown up yet though.

Great place to stay with family

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2015
I really enjoyed our stay and the beautiful view of the bay from our room. Room was quiet and big. Bed was comfy. Location is great. A short walk to all the shops and restaurants. Self park for only $10 a day at the hotel's parking garage. Over all it's nothing fancy but if you travel with kids and all you want is a good night sleep, this is the hotel you need.

Daughter's Graduation

Would recommend Fri, May 15, 2015
The staff was so helpful right from the start. I had mistakenly registered for a smoking room and asked if that could be changed. The person who registered us was immediately positive that could be done, and found a way to make it happen. The room was clean and comfortable, and we loved the proximity to downtown Portland.

Great last minute hotel

Would recommend Tue, Mar 3, 2015
We booked this hotel on our way to Portland, about 3 hours before we checked-in. The staff was super helpful, and the room was big and clean. Good for our 1 night out.
