Over night weather avoidance

The hotel was clean, inexpensive and close to everything. Employees were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was great. Everything we could have asked for and we were transported to the airport by the hotel shuttle which was also clean and efficient.

Just ok

For a Days inn i expected it to be a little bit cleaner and more updated and fresh. Look like it has not been remodeled since it opened. Overall it was ok. I would only stay there in case of an emergency or if i were extremely price conscious. It was bearable but not somewhere i would choose to stay a second time. However, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was GREAT.

Internet was down for hours so had difficulty getting boarding passes. A manager was helpful and printed out on her lap top but it took about 2 hours till I got it. Rooms and bath needed an update . Clean to a point .. But got bitten up by mosquito"/ during the night. Main lobby is nice ... Chck the rooms out . Don't be filled by the nice lobby. Staff tried tol be really nice. Close to airport which is why we stayed there.

"Simple Gifts" , cimfortable & economical

Excellent location (next to exit 45 of Interst. 95, next to a nice mall & couple of good restaurants, with direct access to U.S. 1 and route 77, leading to lovely beeches, state park, famous lighthouse and fine restaurants like Garofalo's ( at Higgins beach ) and (alas, fast food style cafeteria ) The Lobster shack, just outside Two Lights State Park. Portland, Maine is a lovely town with a lively art museum a remarkable old harbor, full of shops, restaurants and with boat docks for marine cruises. Very recommended and not too far from from N.H. & Boston.

For a very convenient hotel, it should be better quality. Definitely NOT worth over $80 a night.

good choice getaway

Celebrating wedding anniversary with our 4 kids on memorial day , we did not have much choices since many of them were unvailable., and end up being just the perfect choice. The kids enjoy starting the day with a good breakfast, going to the mall just at walking distance, having their favorites restaurants just around, going to the movies just minutes away and down town very close., and comming back to enjoy the pool for the rest of the day. The beds are very comfortable and our room was very clean.

Could be better...

The hotel staff were unfriendly, and we were scolded for "incorrect" usage of the pool area before even utilizing the so-called pool. (Which was cramped and not much larger than a kiddie pool). The temprature contole system was defective and would turn off sporadically. Window blinds did not conceal light. And the room safe would not work.

Days Inn

I was very upset to get to this hotel and find that my room smelled awful, hairs in the tub that were not mine, and a hot tub the hotel promised taken out. I would think twice. I went to point these things out and they said "That's too bad" and did nothing to make the situation right.
