meh

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room appeared clean but was rather dark and depressing. The sheets and bedding seemed worn, the lighting, especially in the bathroom was insufficient. The room did have the essentials: nice TV, soap, cups, coffee maker, towels, hairdryer, iron. We stayed there to be close to the airport, which it was. However, next time I'd chose another option.

One night stay

We stayed in this hotel for one night after arriving late in Portland. We didn't expect much and the hotel room was functional.

Bad start to our stay

We checked in to our hotel and the AC was not working properly. I reported it to the front desk and they sent the "maintenance" man down to look at it. He did nothing. I went to the front desk and told them I was not happy with the response to my problem. We went out for dinner and when we returned the maintenance man was leaving our room after replacing the AC unit. Unfortunately when they gave him a key to the room they disabled our room keys so we were locked out. Back to the front desk to get new keys. New AC was great. Returned to our room the next day and once again we are locked out. Back to the front desk again. This time I was told if the key was near my cell phone the magnetic strip could be erased, sounds kind of like a line of baloney to me. Never heard that one before. We did manage to get a discount coupon for our next stay at that property. This is a nice hotel that we have stayed in many times over the years, never had this much trouble.

Fine for a quick stay

We needed a last minute bed near the Portland airport - this was the least expensive so we booked a room. Everything was fine - we did not use any amenities except breakfast which was a little better then the average Continental Breakfast. My best judge of a room - the SHOWER - it may have been the best hotel shower I have ever been in. Only one thing that was not good - a staff person was scrubbing chairs off to the side during breakfast - it was loud and annoying and should be done at any other time of day.

Days Inn south Portland Maine Mall Rd.

This is an ok hotel. It needs some upgrading. Rooms are lacking refrigerators and microwaves which I thought would be standards these days.

Very Happy

My husband and I stayed here and were very happy with the location and cleanliness. We enjoyed having 2 comfortable chairs to sit in . I enjoyed being so close to so much shopping. My husband rested while I walked around.

Good value and very convenient

I only have one small complaint. The room smelled strongly of floral disinfectant, or something. It was obvious on entering the room, but not bothersome once my nose adjusted to it.

Hidden fees

I arrived late in the evening from a long day. My room was completely paid for up front by reserving the room on line. When I received my reservation confirmation email I reviewed it, no where did it state there was a $ 100.00 holding fee once I arrived. The staff was not much help and acted as if I was a bother. Other than that the stay was 'OK'. The rooms were not the best but liveable for one night.

Downtown Portland was a great get away for evening entertainment. A short taxi ride, a flat rate of $14.00 on way when we were there.

Hotel Review

The hotel was average. We did not like having choosing a baseboard heater or wall air conditioner. There was no fan to run when the heater was on to block out side noise. We did not sleep well. All of the pillows were the same hardness. I needed a soft one to sleep well. We did like the free shuttle to the airport.
