Mehhh, Okay.

The rooms are in a serious need of an overhaul at the moment. We stayed there for 1 night and the entire floor smelled like smoke, even through we we were on a non-smoking floor. The staff was pleasant and the breakfast setup was good. The bed was fine, but bathrooms were so-so etc...wasn't really worth $150 bucks a night.

Quiet

The area where the hotel is is very quiet. Good for a relaxing get away. The hotel doesn't have a bar, but downtown portland is about 1.5 mile away. The breakfast is awesome, free and awesome. The staff is very nice and accomodating.

Good value

Laborday weekend. It was a pricey weekend to be traveling....and this place isn't normally worth the $170/night that we paid, but all things considered it was a good value for location, cleanliness and price relative to other hotels. Free Wifi was excellent. Friendly, helpful desk staff.

Okay Stay

The location is not bad for the hotel rate. It is a short drive to downtown Portland and parking is fairly easy to find. The breakfast is nice and the room is pretty comfortable. It is also very clean except for a couple things that were disconcerting. There is a double toilet roll dispenser in the bathroom. Both rolls were used by previous guests and one was soiled. The soap dish, at the sink, is actually a folded washcloth which had not been changed in some time and was very dirty. There was only one washcloth provided in our room. We have stayed here before and have not had a similar experience. It was very disappointing.

Street and Company is a marvelous restaurant. A little expensive, but fabulous food. And a very short second is the Portland Lobster Company. Great food with a live band for both lunch and dinner.

Volunteer Weekend

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The room was spacious enough and had just enough of the right stuff, no frills, just good. The breakfast wasn't bad, but the room was quite inadequate for the full house that seemed to be there. It was not a bad stay at all, just not great for the amount of money for a hotel on the outskirts of the city. The proximity to the highway was convenient.

A good choice

We chose La Quinta Inn & Suites because it was less expensive than the other hotels in the heart of downtown but was still relatively close. If you have a car, this is a good choice. Parking is pretty easy to find downtown and the hotel is only a short 5-10 minute drive to get there, or many of the surrounding areas. Staff was helpful and courteous. They were on top of refilling the breakfast items. The neighborhood is a bit shady, but we never worried for our safety. The room was pretty average. It did have a fridge and microwave, which was nice. It also had a very comfortable bed! In my experience, that can be hard to come by. Overall, good choice!

Ok, just not worth the price.

The place was fine. However, I've had a comperable stay elsewhere for much less. It just didn't seem to be worth what they cherged. The location isn't that great either.

Quick stop

This hotel was a quick stop between Boston and the Maine coast. We took the amtrak up and they picked us up right from the station. We also needed to pick up a rental car and they had no problem bringing us to the airport. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
