Great spot close to Portland

The hotel was conveniently located just outside of Portland. Offered us a nice stay for not as expensive in price if you were to stay in town.

family vacation

was very pleased with room size and how clean it was. Staff was very nice. My three boys had a great time in the indoor pool and hot tubs on the rainy day that we had. They loved going back to the hotel each evening to see what kind of treats (crackers) the cleaning lady left them. Great place !!!! will stay again.

We were able to check in early, and the room was very nice and well appointed. Service was quick, Wake up call available and prompt. Wish we could have stayed longer. A little pricey but so is all of Portland.

An OK Hotel

This Ramada was clean and everything worked. It would have been nice to have breakfast included in the relatively high room rate, but we felt fortunate to book something this close to Portland, ME in peak season on short notice. We'd stay here again if we ever need to go back to the area.

Excellent restaurants and shopping in downtown Portland, just a few miles to the east. A great place for seafood and other types. Well worth a few miles of local driving.

The sign said it was a Ramada Inn, But the hotel was a Howard Johnson! with the price of a Marriott!!

If you are interested in the historic area of Portland, it is about a 15 min drive. Great location for the Maine Turnpike
