Recent guest reviews

Have stayed here many times and it's always terrific. Never had a single issue

Excellent location in Portland, ME. Short walking distance to Old Port. Very courteous and helpful staff.

Great location, excellent, genuinely helpful staff. And the room was really clean, and very comfortable.

Stayed for a quick night in town. Had dinner reservations nearby and an early meeting the next day. Location is great. Staff friendly. Basic amenities. Rooms are comfortable. Thermostat was a pain. I would set it to cool and would wake up with the room at 75. Even with selector to cool it would not stop going back to heat. Couple random hairs in the side of the tub, but cleaner then most. Hot breakfast in the morning is ok. Powdered eggs and heated from frozen bagel, cheese, and something? They have great home fries so it's too bad they don't offer a good egg option even if it was for an extra charge. I'll probably stay again although there are numerous locations nearby that offer similar rates so the few downsides at this location are starting to be offset by the competition.

We rented a car but once we arrived at the hotel we never used it until we left to go home. Hotel is in a great location and the staff was very friendly. Rooms were a good size and very clean. Definitely would stay there again!!

Nice location- fun to stay in town for a change! Nice new hotel. Within walking distance to mist everything!

This hotel is amazing because of it's location, breakfast, and service. I stay here every time I visit Portland. I just wish they had a hot tub.

The breakfast staff was welcoming. One man offered me mints, which was quite gracious of him.

Stayed here for one night. Location is great. Staff was helpfull. Had a problem with my tv but after 10 minutes the staff fixed it. Hot breakfast is a plus.

Room was very nice, VERY clean. Every staff member I ran into was friendly. Great location for downtown, easy in easy out. Would definitely stay here again.

Visited Portland to see some friends and had a great stay at the Hampton Inn downtown. Access off I295 was very easy and walking access to downtown, the port and ferry terminal was easy as well. Room was clean and perfect. The only thing a little surprising was to be charged $15 for valet parking. Self parking is not an option.

This hotel is nicely situated in downtown Portland. We had a lovely large corner room which was spacious with beautiful windows to view the city and harbor. However, it is overpriced for a Hampton Inn. Also, there is valet parking for the hotel and they do not mention that it is an additional daily charge. All in all a fine experience to take in the wonderful city of Portland, Maine.

Even though we were just up in Portland for 1 night, I couldn't have asked for a better location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The entire hotel was very clean and had a lot to offer, even though we didn't take advantage of it all. I would stay again.

Fantastically positioned with easy access to the waterfront and old port. Staff were efficient and responsive and price included breakfast. Room was clean and amenities good although cone view room had more car park and less ocean. The air conditioner was also very noisy.

This hotel is close to all the cool restaurants and taverns in Portland's beautiful harbor. And -- within steps of an excellent hike and bike trail along the waterside. This is a typical Hampton Inn, clean and comfortable, but every member of the staff was exceptionally personable and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Convenient and close to bars and restaurants on Commercial Ave. Comfortable bedding and decent room quality. Service is minimal. Sebago Brewing Co is on the bottom floor and very easily accessible. Pool is almost a waste of time.

Excellent room with fabulous amenities and great location to the Old Port! Parking was a bit pricey for two vehicles ($15.00 mandatory valet service) Enjoyed my stay and would stay again for a night out in downtown Portland.

Generally nice accommodations. However, Pool water could be warmer.

We had a great weekend What a nice hotel with friendly helpful staff Amazing. Reskfast Nice view and perfect location!

This definitely feels like a nice hotel- big, lovely rooms, swanky reception area, lovely staff, good breakfast- love the fire in the lobby! Easy, good location (nice restaurants on same block) and free airport shuttle!
