You will need to call housekeeping IMMEDIATELY after checking in and opening the door to your room. Checked in at 5pm and this is what the room looked like...housekeeping said sorry. But very little they could do. Yes moved rooms. Gross.

Happy we chose here for two days in Portland and Freeport. Quick check in, room is ok, with fridge and microwave. Happy with restaurant, good service, good food. The only downside really was the loudness of the doors slamming all down the corridor.
