I recently called this hotel to check on pricing and availability. The man I spoke with, I believe his name was Martin or Marshall. (It was a “M” name) Was extremely rude and the only help he could muster up, was to direct me to the hotel website to obtain this information. It wa

Carpets in hallways were dirty and badly stained. Bed in room had coffee stains on mattress pad and wad of hair on duvet. Sorry breakfast cost $10. Lobby full of leaves. Would not stay here again. Only benefit was close location to bus/train station with hotel shuttle.

We breezed into town for a concert on a Saturday night. A quick and easy check-in. Free cookies (always a bonus). Getting here was troublesome as there's no directions on the website so we got directions from Googlemaps which was a BIG mistake. It doesn't hurt that the hotel

An easy and inexpensive ride on Concord Coach from Boston Logan Airport took 2 hours to arrive at Portland's Transportation Center. Exit the Transportation Center's front doors, look straight ahead over and beyond the parking area, two non-descriptive buildings could be seen--on

The hotel is very old and had a musty smell in the room. It really needs refurbished. There was black mildew in the shower which is not a good sign. It is a very good location so if they would put a little of their money into the place to refurbish they could make out a lot be

How far is your hotel from the city centre?
Hi, I don't remember exactly but it wasn't that far of a drive. It was close enough.

What is the price for park and fly? What is the timing for the airport shuttle?
Sorry I don't know but I can tell you that it's a very short ride to the airport - 10 minutes tops (although I did not do it in rush hour).

If we are going on a trip and staying at the hotel before we leave and after we come back, will the hotel let us leave our car on their premises?
I would not stay at this hotel ever again. It's the worst experience. We stayed 7 hotels in our 3 week vacation and the worst was this hotel. Run down, noisy, room is dirty looking. Filthy.

I see that there is an airport shuttle to the jetport, but will the shuttle pick me up from the airport?
Yes. You will have to call. It might take 10 minutes to meet you; it might take them over 30.

do you run a shuttle to and from the Maine medical center? If so what is the schedule?
I believe the hotel's shuttle can run you almost anywhere you want. It isn't far from Maine Med.

"Try the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Convenient and friendly shuttle service available."
"There are rooms on the pool with doors to the pool. The rooms have a chlorine smell, how could they not. Good for families with kids."
"Ask for a room on ground or second floor so you can avoid the elevator."
"I don't think they have a good room."
"Unless you need one do not get a connector room."
