I stayed at the Motel 6 in the Portland, Maine area in October 2020. I had traveled from several hours away in order to take a scheduled professional certification exam the following morning. I checked into the hotel around 10pm and settled in to review my books and study materials one last time before the exam. My boyfriend and I texted one another around midnight to say goodnight and a few minutes later (as I was sitting on the bed studying) I heard someone come to my door and insert their key card. On the second attempt, the door unlocked and the person entered my room. I was extremely alarmed given that 1) it was past midnight and no one (except myself) should have been able to access the room 2) I was traveling solo as a female and 3) we’re in the middle of a pandemic. I immediately shouted at the person to leave. I called the front desk using the hotel room phone to report the incident but no one answered. I went downstairs to the lobby to speak with the desk attendant. I explained that someone used their hotel key card to unlock my door and enter my room. I requested an explanation because I was shocked that someone could unlock, open and enter my hotel room door with their key card after midnight, in the middle of a pandemic. I was traveling alone and had an important certification exam the following morning. No one, except me, should have been able to unlock my hotel door and enter my hotel room. Period. It was the hotel’s responsibility to provide safe and secure accommodations, which they were unable to do. They offered no explanation for the incident and provided no alternatives (i.e. relocating me to a different hotel room in case there was a problem with the lock on the door). I communicated to the desk attendant that I did not feel safe staying in their hotel room, said that I would be leaving the premises and requested a refund. The attendant explained that only a manager could issue a refund, and because no manager was on duty at that hour, I would have to return the following day to request a refund. I acknowledged that I would return the following day to speak with the manager, and verbally communicated to the desk attendant that I would gather my belongings from the hotel room and leave the premises within 5-10 minutes because I did not feel safe staying at their hotel and deemed their services unsatisfactory. When I left the premises the desk attendant acknowledged my premature departure as I left through the main entry/exit door approximately 30 minutes after the incident occurred (which would have been recorded on the hotel security cameras). At no time did the attendant indicate I would need to provide written confirmation of my departure in order to receive a full refund. After I completed my certification exam the following day, I spoke with the manager over the phone about the incident and asked for a full refund. The manager claimed they would look into it. I reported the incident to the local police department. I also reported the incident to the Better Business Bureau. I refused the charge on my credit card, providing documentation that I was traveling for business purposes and providing an invoice from the replacement hotel where I stayed that evening. Additionally, I was faced with undue stress in the middle of the night, before an important professional exam, visiting three additional hotels before finding a replacement hotel (due to new policies with hotels because of Covid). The merchant issued the following statement to my credit card company when I refused the charge: “There was no complaint from the guest during their entire stay… This is a fraudulent complaint - the guest is lying to get their money back.” When my credit card company requested additional information about the situation, the hotel staff checked their security cameras and confirmed that a man went to my door and entered my hotel room at 12:15am. The bottom line: I would not have left Motel 6 at 12:30am before an important professional certification exam if it weren’t for the security breech incident that occurred. It was the hotel’s responsibility to provide safe and secure accommodations, which they were unable to do. Regardless of this information, they refused to issue me a 100% refund. I am deeply disappointed by the hotel personnel’s remarks claiming that I stayed the entire night without complaining and lied in order to get my money back. This type of response is not what I would come to expect from a professional establishment. Do yourself a favor and avoid this establishment at all costs.…
Very well maintained property with a friendly staff and clean accommodations. Only downside was the price, which I felt was a little high for Motel 6. Other hotels in the area were either sold out or not selling rooms due to COVID. Other than that had a great stay and would recommend.
The Motel 6 in Portland was perfect for my needs. Budget friendly, nice employees, and located perfectly off of the major highway. Very close to Maine Mall, downtown, and several restaurants - Ruby Tuesdays, Applebees, and many others. The check in was fast, and room was simple and clean.
DO NOT BOOK HERE !!!! Short version : They overbook and will not have enough beds for you, BEDBUGS, C*M STAINS, REEKS of SMOKE, questionable clients. Do NOT believe all the positive reviews. Look who wrote it and how they always praise Motel6 of various places (must be an IMPOSTER from Motel6 corporate and not a true customer) Please check my pics and videos to see the truth of this awful place. We arrived after a long day of driving and expected 2 queen beds (booked and confirmed way prior). They only gave us 1 bed and said their manager is known to overbook to save costs. The room we booked was non-smoking but smelled so bad of smoke and sadly attempted to cover it up with air freshener. So then they moved us to a nonsmoking room that truly didn’t smell of smoke. Next day they moved us to a room with 2 queen beds. But then as I’m relaxing in bed I felt something crawling. Flipped open the sheets and saw BEDBUGS, huge big brown ones as well as translucent babies crawling around. So angry!!! I went to Frontdesk to complain and they moved us for the 4th time. Soon as I start to unpack and then flip the sheets open to climb in bed, there is a HUGE C*M stain in the sheets. I’ve had it and stormed out of that hell hole. Take your business anywhere else. Try a bit south of Portland. For same price or even lower you will get a nice clean hotel like I did in the middle of the night. I do not want to give out the alternative hotel, since you might think that I’m a biased worker or owner of that hotel. Search for yourself. Anywhere 3-4 miles from this Motel6 location is a better choice. Still not too far from central Portland. …
This hotel is a great value in a great location and the staff makes you truly feel like a valued guest. I am very picky when staying in hotels but I must say you will be happy you picked this place. It is not only clean/regularly sanitized to fight off covid germs but very close to everything as well. Only downside is no pool but not sure I'd feel comfortable anyway getting in a pool in today's world.
