Average at best.

Heating unit kept turning itself on--loudly--all night. This, combined with heat that was way above what I set the thermostat at, made getting a good night's sleep impossible. TV in exercise room did not work, so working out was even more of a chore than usual. Best thing about this place was its cheerful, helpful staff combined with the free shuttle service--not to everywhere, but at least to one key place.

utilitarian

Clean, comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, though perhaps not the most competent. The first night, they mixed up rooms and gave me key to someone else, so 9pm some guy comes into my room thinking it's his. Umm... About a 15-20 min walk downtown, which would have been great during the summer but was a bit rough in December.

Portland Museum of Art is a 20 min walk away. Nice permanent collection as well as interesting exhibits. Manageable size and reasonable price.

great location

great location, close to everything .... Hotel itself is fine, nice people, clean rooms, and nice buffet breakfast in the morning ... Downtown, old Port can be reached in minutes by car, but can also be a nice jaunt, about a mile.

Nice folks!

A quick phone call brought me through the maze of one-way streets. And then a printout of directions to get to the nearest Staples before the Boatbuilders Show were examples of how helpful the staff was during my stay. There needs to be a LARGE entrance sign by the turn. The hotel sign is just before a one-way street...and you're ON a one-way street.

All of Portland is at your fingertips for an extremely reasonable rate. Once you have your bearings, it's simple as pie to access downtown and The Old Port!

Good for business

Stayed for 3 nights while house hunting in the area. Easy highway access, close to downtown, has parking. Friendly & polite staff, clean rooms, beds are pretty comfy. Could use some better comforters on the beds but they're alright. Automatic heating/cooling system is very nice. Free wifi with a good strong connection. Overall a good stay, decent price.

Great Convenience for the Price

I stayed at this hotel for business for convenience to the airport, Portland, and the highways. The location isn't exactly what I'd call a tourist friendly area (not much to do or see), but it's a short drive from downtown Portland where there's plenty to do and see. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and had a very comfortable bed. It wasn't anything fancy, but it was well appointed and I had a pleasant experience.

The Dogfish Cafe was a great dinner spot only a couple of blocks from the hotel. It's a small, local place with delicious food and friendly staff.
