Recent guest reviews

the room was clean and comfortable. over all look of the hotel exterior not much to look at. had a breakfast room tiny but had one. we didnt stay for the free breakie but they do offer one. dunkin donuts around the corner had breakie there. close to shopping can walk to the mall. lots of restaurants close by.

The cleanliness was questionable. The staff was not very friendly. The continental breakfast was only adequate. The bed was very high making it difficult for my wife to get into. This location would not be on my list of locations to return to when in the area.

Stayed here one night before taking the ferry to Canada. The price was good, the room not so much. Decent bed, quite location next to the mall. TV reception and channel choices were very poor and the WiFi was very slow. This is the kind of place you stay at for one night as you are driving through. Would not recommend an extended stay here.

The hotel was in the right place at the right price. Just don't look around very closely at the room. (Worn carpet, stained towels, marks on the wall, etc) They did provide wifi and a ride to the airport. They didn't have a laundry or breakfast.

The cleaning people here are outstanding. The room was very clean. The room was a bit small. Staff was not very friendly. It is very close to the mall and lots of restaurants. One bad think is the ice machine is on the second floor. They do not have laundry facility there.

I opted for a budget hotel/motel just to get some sleep during my travel. No need for anything fancy. My hope was that the room was clean, not run down and the bed was comfortable. It was a cold, rainy night and I was fortunate to get a parking spot 3 steps from my door. As the rain came down, I didn't get wet, and didn't have to slog my bag through a lobby. There's something nice about that. For a budget room, this room is well-equipped and spotless. For the price, there's nothing that takes away from a 5-star review as far as I'm concerned.

Absolutely horrible. Front desk staff could barely understand me, stairway filthy. Room was muggy, had dirty carpet, black mold in bathroom around shower, and on shower curtain. Sheet hard and scratchy. Loud all night outside, police were there twice the night I stayed. This place is a low budget hide away for suspicious activity. Do not bring your family here, especially children. Stay away, and pay extra to enjoy your stay in Maine. No rest, no comfort. Breakfast is horrible dry muffins and juice. The manager, does not care about paying customers, caters to long term transients, who are loud and dis- respectful especially late at night.

This hotel needs some work. They would not allow a late checkout for any reason. The security is fair. The area is open country. There are restaurants in the area that are a good mixture of types of foods and cost.

Location is great for shopping, restaurants and quick & easy access to the interstate or downtown Portland. Old Orchard Beach is just down the highway or the outlet stores of Freeport. The Maine Mall is a short walk away from the motel and grocery is a short drive away (Hannaford's).

Traveling with a dog is no problem. They are pet friendly. The room was neat and clean. The hotel is in a very quiet area and and close to the Maine mall to do some shoping. It is also a short ride to the Airport. We had a very nice complimentry breakfast the next morning. Eggs two ways sausage links, Toast, Beagles, Muffins, Cold cereals, Coffee,Milk, OJ, and the fixins. A very good choice for an over night stay
