Poor Accomodations

I was very upset when I checked into the Holiday Inn Express and was told that I could only have the room in front of the elevators or the handicapped room because I was a travel site discount purchaser. I opted for the handicapped room and found the room to be wanting.

Not a good deal plus room was musty

Our stay was dampened when the hotel receptionist informed us that the travel-site rate was higher than a rate directly through the hotel. (Talk about feeling ripped off). Once we were in the room- the smell of mildew/mold almost knocked us back. The AC Unit definitely needed to be updated! The beds were clean but mattresses felt old. The continental breakfast was typical- nothing to write home about. All in all- we will not plan to stay in this hotel again.

Third Party Woes

We booked a suite with two full beds, and were switched over to a King and a pullout sofa in a room directly across from the elevator (loud). The explanation given was that since we booked through a third party , our reserved room means absolutely nothing, and we were "lucky" to get a room with a pullout. So much for the reservation process...

Surprisingly Nice!

We were in Portland just for an overnight stay and we made reservations the day before, but we pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The lobby was clean, bright and clean. The included breakfast was more than decent. We had a suite and I was amazed at the size and comfort of the room. A great value.

Nice hotel with good location

The hotel was very nice and clean with a great location, close to Portland, close to the Maine Mall and many restaurants. Parking lot winter maintenance left something to be desired. All parking spaces had packed snow and ice. I did see an employee attempting to scrap out empty spaces with a bucket loader but when I cam back to the hotel at the end of the day it was as if nothing had been accomplished despite above average temps that day.

Very clean and up to date hotel

The stay was just one night before flying out for vacation. It was exceptionally clean, quiet though parking area was full. The room had a sitting area with desk seperated by a half wall from the king size bed. A good place to get a good night sleep before flying out early. They offered airport shuttle. Snacks, coffee bar ready anytime in the lobby. A very clean, well decorated place. Wifi readily available.
