3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautifully aged hotel and on the river. Close to anything and everything you need.

Beautiful spit right on the river. The staff was super friendly. Close enogh to everything but still feels secluded. Right next to lots of shopping and restaurants. Was definitely worth every penny.

hotel was great but the front desk check in person was not friendly at all. i asked for restaurant pointers near the area and he didn't seem to care about my inquiry.

Staff are very nice and accommodating. What I didn’t like is that there was so much door slamming on my last night at the hotel. I spoke to the front desk, they went upstairs to take care of it but slamming doors continued through out the night.

Our original room was not completely cleaned. The manager was beyond helpful in making sure we were taking care of in Room transfer and upgraded us to a water front suite. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and the restaurant was decent for the price. I would come back here absolutely. It’s an affordable hotel, and we loved that it was away from the city

The hotel is located on of the extended centerline of runways 10L/R at Portland airport. When aircraft are landing to the north there is a continuous parade of aircraft crossing just in front of the hotel at about 1000 feet agl. I could find no evidence of any extraordinary sound proofing such as triple pane windows to mitigate this noise. Bring ear plugs if you stay. The staff was not very accommodating. Called the front desk to find out what pizza place delivered to the hotel. Was told by the front desk to use my pizza phone app. Asked for a room with a view of the river. Got assigned a room that looked at the 2 tennis courts that had grass growing up in the cracks. A large berm at the end of the courts blocked any view.

Was a nice property. Plenty of food options in the area

I liked the price of the room , great view , friendly staff and good food

We were pleased with the hotel especially the hot tub and the quiet room

Had a great time here. I loked the river view, with the exception of the comtainers on the side (rm 245). The bar and restaurant was awesome with friendly upbeat staff and thr night club was off the hook. I will definately stay here again!

The rooms were nice, but the common areas were dated and dingy.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your visit to Portland! I am very happy to see that you found our staff to be very accommodating and nice! I am discouraged to hear that you experienced excessive slamming of the doors. This behavior is not typical of our hotel. I truly hope we get an opportunity to have you back as our guest again soon!
