Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites South Portland

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For $89/night I was not expecting the room that we got for our overnight stay here in South Portland. The room we received was a beautiful suite with a pull out sofa, desk, small kitchenette, king bed, large windows, and a large flat screen TV. The room was larger than my first apartment! We were so impressed with the room and what they had to offer, we kind of wished that it wasn't just an overnight trip. We will absolutely use this facility again!

Very clean and awesome staff. The pull out couch could not be slept on as it is so uncomfortable. Needs a new mattress. Other than that our stay was great and we will be back, but with sn air mattress.

Great hotel clean great location is to get to. Great room lots of space to relax.

Routine stay while traveling through Portland. Clean, efficient hotel. Next to Marriott with dining and bar facilities. Walking and running opportunities in safe environment.

Cancellation of flight due to weather. Had to pay 215.82 for an additional night.

It was clean and the staff was great. I loved having the couch and living area.

Everything was excellent and the restaurant at the Marriott next door is not to be missed.

The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and the staff was all pleasant. The pool is small but indoors and at a good temperature. The only thing was the gym. It was small and both the bike and the eliptical did not work. The one treadmill I tried did work, so I still got my cardio in. This was over-all a great hotel stay. I would definitely stay again.

We have a family shopping trip every year and this was a great time had by all. The only thing that would make it better is a lounge

excellent beds great breakfast nice desk areas bad parking

Enjoyed this trip and love to stay hear. This is my go to motel when i am in the Portland area.

I loved the place. This hotel has gym, swimming pool, delicious continental breakfast, good staff, clean room and lobby restrooms which helped our big group of 13 people. Thanks

The motel was clean and was being renovated even though it was very nice already. It was convenient and close to plenty of food options.

Great over night stay before leaving Maine. Great staff. My only account is there was no fruit on the breakfast bar when I went down at 8:30am. Great beds etc...

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.

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.

Great breakfast, huge rooms, very clean, nice decor, staff was very accommodating. I just wish there was a hot tub.

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...

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.

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.
