Family Member hospitalized over a Holiday weekend. The Clarion had one King size room left that they rented me for a discounted Hospital rate and included a $10 Breakfast buffet coupon. The room had a microwave, refrigerator and hair dryer. The room was clean right down the street from Maine Medical and the desk staff was extremely kind and professional....

We stayed at this Clarion hotel on the tail end of a vacation to Canada and Maine. Normally, we stay in 4 or 5 star hotels but were watching the budget at the end of our trip. This Clarion was a very pleasant surprise. The outside is a bit dreary but then the area was actually a bit dreary overall....

Friendly and helpful staff willing to go the extra mile to make guests' stay a positive and memorable one. The hotel, itself is well maintained with very clean, comfortable and updated rooms. Quality food in the hotel restaurant as well. The one and only thing to make this the "perfect" place would be to update to adjustable mattress for those...

Stayed here for the price. Arrived late to airport and driving north next morning so just needed a bed. Close to airport but very hard to find. Even when you see the sign from a distance, it disappears and you can't find the hotel! The hotel sorely needs a renovation. The staff we ran into were very nice, accommodating, and...

Stayed for a night with my wife for an excursion to Portland. Compared to the price of the hotels downtown. This served it's purpose. I can't see paying 300+ a night. If you're in Portland..you won't be sitting in your hotel room that much. The Clarion was ok. Not great by any means but ok. Could use a reno. And...

I had read a number of reviews on this hotel and was a little upset that I received this one as my "bid". But the deal was right so we went. We are familiar with the Portland, but if you are from out of town, it is tucked away behind the mobile station and a little hard to find. When...

Great Hotel in Portland Maine...walk to DownEaster AMTRAK and Concord Bus Lines; inexpensive taxi (ABC; Patrick) to the Old Port and Casco Bay. Stayed many, many times in winter and spring. Great price...nicely appointed rooms....many amenities (pool, breakfast/lunch, etc). Great staff....very accommodating. A pleasant experience... Jeff_of_NH (aka Dodge_charger_43)

Nothing fancy, seemed a little pricey, but had great service and brought up an air mattress for my son. Had 2 double beds. A/C unit was wall unit and pretty loud when cycled on. No airport noise noted. Stayed one night.

When my dad was a ICU patient at Maine Medical, they referred us to the Clarion. The staff, especially Mary at the front desk and the waitstaff at breakfast were just the best. We will be coming back, but next time without the hospital excitement.

This hotel was filthy inside and out. There was dirt built up in the corners in the bathroom and the windows were dirty. The hallways and elevator were also dirty, not sure if they ever vacuumed them. One elevator did not work at all and the other didn't go to the 5th floor for over a day. At 69 years...
